Michelle initially realized her passion and ability for helping patients achieve pain free results as a Remedial Massage therapist. She soon went on to continue her studies to be a Myotherapist and founded Essential Health Myotherapy & Massage in 2008.
From a young age Michelle was competitive in multiple sports, State league netball (for North Melbourne & Victoria), athletics (which took her to the USA representing Australia in both 800m & 1500m) and cross country regional and state events. Michelle soon developed a broad knowledge of injury and pain management and rehabilitation and corrective exercises.
Private practice has been a natural progression for Michelle, giving her the ability to put all her experience into one venue and recruit like minded Myotherapists. Together, they are an experienced team, motivated and passionate about helping patients achieve pain free results, improving their performance on the sporting field or simply in day to day life.
Michelle has been a board member of Myotherapy Association Australia (formally I.R.M.A) since 2012 and is working to assist in the movement of advancing the recognition of Myotherapy both in the local community and on a government level.
