Kathryn’s clinical background includes working as a Registered Nurse within general medical, surgical and Oncological /Haematological care settings. She has also completed a Diploma of remedial massage and a Batchelor of Health Science (Musculoskeletal therapy/Myotherapy). Kathryn has a special interest in chronic pain management and correcting biomechanical dysfunction. She acknowledges that chronic pain may often be the result of past trauma and adaptive functional movement impairment patterns. Therefore, her assessment and treatment have a focus on functional impairments of nerve, muscle, fascia and joints. Treatment may include neural mobilisation, electrotherapeutic dry needling, spinal and peripheral joint mobilisation, facilitated stretching, exercise prescription and nutritional advice.
Kathryn is a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society (ATMS) and the Myotherapy Association of Australia (MAA).

Musculoskeletal therapy (also known as Clinical Myotherapy) is a branch of functional medicine with a focus on neuro-musculoskeletal assessment and treatment. Musculoskeletal clinicians offer advanced assessment, including orthopaedic & neurological testing. Treatment may include soft tissue / joint mobilisation, neuro-mobilisation, myofascial techniques, dry needling, electro-dry needling, facilitated stretching, exercise prescription & nutritional advice.
Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. A remedial therapist understands that a patient’s needs are unique, and therefore particular remedial massage techniques need to be selected with clinical expertise and applied individually to suit each patient. Examples of conditions treated may include: Joint Problems, Frozen Shoulder, Muscle Spasms, Poor Circulation, Loss of Muscle Tone, Arthritis, Sciatica, Fibrositis, Wry neck & Headache, Lumbago
Lymphatic & Cancer Support
Lymphatic assessment and drainage for both primary and secondary lymphoedema. Staff practicing Manual Lymphatic Drainage are trained in the Vodder technique. Advanced booking is essential.
Applying sports massage requires an understanding of the functional movement patterns that athletes incorporate within their chosen sport. Massage techniques are used to support the athlete during training and during pre-event, post-event, intra- event and inter-event phases of competition. Sports related mechanical conditions, discomfort or disease may be treated. Examples of such conditions may include: Medial tibial stress syndrome, Compartment pressure syndrome, Muscular dysfunction syndromes, Rotator cuff syndrome, Piriformis syndrome
