WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE
Remedial massage is a hands-on modality that aims to improve and aid in the repair of musculoskeletal aches and pains, injuries and postural imbalances caused by tension in the muscles or other soft tissue components such as fascia, tendons and ligaments.
Remedial massage has the ability to restore the body’s own healing potential by balancing soft tissue length, reducing tension and improving our body’s ability to heal by enhancing nutrient delivery to the affected site and removing waste products (i.e. damaged cells and scar tissue) via the blood and lymphatic system.
WHAT IS MYOTHERAPY
The myotherapists at Melbourne Myotherapy & Remedial Massage in South Melbourne are soft tissue specialists. The soft tissue of the body refers to muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Myotherapists will assess and treat pain and dysfunction in the body based on the effect these tissues have on patients presenting concerns or injuries; and also the effect that these presenting concerns or injuries may have on the soft tissue.
Myotherapy treatment is directed towards the tissue structures to ensure that muscle quality is maintained to allow for optimal movement and function while aiding in pain relief and correcting body dysfunction which may be preventing the recovery of an injury.
Myotherapy can be effective at any stage of a concern or injury, be it corrective, rehabilitative or preventative.

A few years ago I was referred to myotherapist Romany by my personal trainer as I was having difficulty climbing a flight of stairs due to pain in my knees. Since having treatment from Romany and the occasional maintenance visit, not only am I able to climb a flight of stairs but I recently participated in a 6 day 70km trek through a remote mountainous area of Tasmania with no pain in my knee area.
I had been training for my first half marathon. Unfortunately 3 weeks out from the event, as I was about to start tapering, the outside of my knee became incredibly painful. I was referred to Chris at Melbourne Myotherapy and Remedial Massage who worked on my ITB and worked on freeing up my hip. I saw him 3 times before the race. That and some basic exercises and I was able to complete the race. Pain free.
As a weightlifter and sprinter, my body must remain pain free and supple. I’ve been seeing Chris at Melbourne Myotherapy for treatments for the past year. His knowledge and ability to diagnose restrictions, has helped me stay in optimal condition for performance. He’s the best myotherapist in South Melbourne I’ve worked with.
Thanks for helping me get back on the mat. Listening to my concerns and helping me stay injury free.
I regularly see Kasia for a very thorough, deep tissue remedial massage in South Melbourne. Great pressure. Always finds the knots.
I was worked on by Shaun Bostock of Melbourne Myotherapy & Remedial Massage in South Melbourne and he is without a doubt the best Melbourne remedial massage therapist I have been to, his understanding and use of techniques such as fascia release and A.R.T really makes it worth going to see him. He is also funny as and knows more about training and programming for lifting than anyone I have meet. A definite must for any serious lifter who wants to stay on top of their game.
Kasia was my remedial massage therapist while I was pregnant and helped me with back and pelvic pain all the way through to labour. She was really targeting the areas that needed the most relief during pregnancy. I am now seeing her to help me with my tightness and soreness a year on as a busy mum. Highly recommended.
Hands down the best remedial massage treatment that I’ve ever had! Happy to travel consistently from Lilydale to be treated by Shaun at Melbourne Myotherapy and Remedial Massage in South Melbourne, as his knowledge and understanding is on another level!!
I couldn’t sing the praises of Seamus loud enough. I have of course now referred everyone I know to him at Melbourne Myotherapy and Remedial Massage. Everyone I know that has made the positive choice to see him has returned for more bookings, also raving about his service. I’m a fairly high level competitor in BJJ both here in Australia and internationally. I can’t tell you the difference he has made for my training. I’m spending more time on the mats training, sleeping better and also proactively addressing issues that in the past would see me need time off. All of my sporting pursuits are benefiting due to this relationship.
At the start of 2012, pain that I was experiencing in my wrist and thumb was diagnosed by a GP and an Occupational Therapist as De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis (tendon inflammation). After 9 weeks of treatment and wearing a brace with no signs of improvement, I contacted Chris at Melbourne Myotherapy for assistance. In just one myotherapy treatment session, Chris was able to identify a different cause of the pain and provided me with immediate relief. After the second myotherapy treatment session, the pain completely disappeared and it hasn’t been seen since!
It’s been 7 months since I’ve been able to sit my ass on my heels. That was when my knee popped out and I had to go under at the ER to get it back in. But my man Seamus Hayes at Melbourne Myotherapy is sorting me out now and putting my body back into place and helping me get back into competition.
I’ve been to see Seamus at Melbourne Myotherapy & Remedial Massage in South Melbourne for over two years now and he is an excellent myotherapist. Would recommend him to not only athletes but any gym-goers or weekend warriors trying to stay on top of their injuries. He can quickly and effectively assess the root cause of your injury so that the treatment is targeted to the problem straight away – no wasted sessions. He also has an expansive repertoire of strengthening and activation exercises that really help fix the problem. He is very liberal with advice and does not restrict consultations to the confinements of the myotherapy sessions. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.
Awesome remedial massage treatment! This friendly giant (yes you Shaun!) helped me with my chronic neck and back pain caused by the continuous demands of being a mum – holding, lifting and taking care of the kids. I’ve been referred to several remedial massage therapists, none of which were able to do what Shaun did in one session. Highly recommend.
I have been regularly visiting Chris for a couple of years for both injury related and sports massage in Melbourne. He is the best Melbourne myotherapist I have come across. A real professional in every sense of the word. He’s a friendly guy who can be both a gentle giant and a torturous titan.
I saw Kasia for remedial massage in South Melbourne 2 weeks in a row for my back and shoulder tightness and I’ve been feeling great. I also had a hip pain problem resolved, which was not my main reason for coming, and I have finally been able to sleep on my right side for the first time in years.
