MYOTHERAPIST & CLINICAL PILATES INSTRUCTOR
Sarah grew up running and cycling alongside her parents as they trained for marathons, she was a keen swimmer, gymnast and martial artist during her high school years, and she currently enjoys hiking, Pilates, running, swimming and anything that involves being upside down.
When seeking therapy for musculoskeletal injuries over the years, Sarah explored many modalities of bodywork and treatments. Finding the best approach has involved a combination of improving movement patterns and biomechanics, strengthening, remedial massage, joint mobilisation, dry needling and neural mobilisation, in addition to following an anti-inflammatory diet. Having completed a Bachelor of Health Science in Musculoskeletal Therapy (Myotherapy) and a Diploma of Rehabilitation and Studio Pilates, Sarah is passionate about caring for her clients with an individualised holistic style that integrates a range of treatment techniques, with a strong remedial therapy focus.
Sarah’s sessions integrate a health history review, postural and movement assessments, followed by hands on treatment that may involve a range of techniques to reduce pain and discomfort and improve function. Sarah’s aim is to work together with clients toward their health and physical goals, maintaining meaningful and long-lasting outcomes.
Some treatment techniques Sarah may recommend in a session are:
- Remedial massage techniques including pin and stretch, myo-fascial release and trigger point therapy
- Joint mobilisation
- Dry needling and electro dry needling
- Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF)
- Neural mobilisation
- Exercise therapy and stretching
Sarah enjoys treating all musculoskeletal issues including headaches, neck, back and hip pain for all clients.
