Approach

As a Myotherapist, Vanessa aims to underpin the causative factors involved in musculoskeletal dysfunction and pain and treat the individual accordingly. An initial assessment may involve a series of orthopaedic tests, postural and biomechanical analysis. The treatment is then tailored to suit the individual’s requirements using a variety of techniques. As a therapist her goals are to reduce pain and to improve movement and functionality.

Vanessa is also competent in a range of remedial therapies including deep tissue massage, pregnancy massage, manual lymphatic drainage massage and various soft tissue therapies.
