Myotherapy is suitable for people recovering from injury, looking to correct postural imbalances as well as helping with muscular and skeletal problems.

Lymphatic drainage is a gentle massage technique that promotes lymph fluid circulation throughout the body. Increased movement of lymph fluid assists the body’s natural filtration of toxins, detoxification, excess proteins, fats and cellular waste, thereby reducing swelling and boosting your immune system.
The technique works by stimulating and emptying the lymph nodes, and by applying delicate pressure to the surface of the skin to manually move fluid through the lymphatic system.
Appointments are available at the following day and times. Multiple bookings per week are not recommended. Please consult your therapist first.
