Tim is a Myotherapist specialising in Oncology and Lymphatic treatments
A Myotherapist can assess and physically treat muscular pain, injury and dysfunction which is affecting movement and mobility. Symptoms can include reduced range of motion of muscles and joints, stiffness, fatigue, headaches, weakness, numbness or a tingling sensation.
Among the benefits are relaxation, stress reduction, and relief for fatigue and pain. The chief benefit is relaxation and stress reduction, although many patients report improved energy levels following massage. For patients undergoing chemotherapy, massage can improve fatigue and reduce stress while promoting relaxation. For patients undergoing surgery, massage can aid recovery and restore mobility to the affected areas. In addition, some patients report massage as a way to eliminate the need for pain medications.
Can assist to improve health and well-being. It is a very gentle and relaxing form of massage.
The Lymphatic system is the bodies waste disposal system, assisting in carrying away toxic waste and matter, from the tissues and organs. Lymphatic massage helps a compromised body to refresh and rejuvenate the tissues and enhance cell nourishment. This form of massage may help alleviate the pain created by the toxic build up and subsequent pressure on the underlying nerves; it can also assist in improving circulation and lessen any muscle and bone pain experienced by the sufferer.
Those suffering from disorders, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neuron Disease, Parkinson's Disease and Cancer, may gain some relief from Lymphatic Massage.

Having been confined to a wheelchair for over a decade now due to M.S. I have had to rely on various muscle manipulators of varying quality for various ailments. Tim has proven to me beyond any doubt that he is capable, knowledgeable and gets results far exceding anything anyone else has ever shown me. I'd recommend Tim to anybody needing deep tissue work.
Excellent Myotherapist! I could feel the confidence in his technique. Expertise backed by reputable training which is always so important to me. I dont want the basic massage therapist who does touchy feely stuff, I wanted relief and recover which is exactly what I got! Tim was also extremely respectful of my space and was a master at draping! I never felt exposed at any point. Thanks so much for the healing hands Tim!
Thanks Bron! Would love you to come visit us at Ballarat next time you are up this way.
