After discovering myotherapy and its holistic approach to preventative health care, Melanie Smith knew the Advanced Diploma in Remedial Myotherapy would allow her to work with and help people.
Advanced Diploma of Remedial Massage (Myotherapy)
I discovered RMIT’s Advanced Diploma in Remedial Myotherapy at Open Day. After finding out that RMIT is highly respected in the industry, I put it down as first preference on my VTAC application.
"I always wanted a career that would allow me to work with and help people. When I discovered myotherapy and its holistic approach to preventative health care, I knew I’d found the field I wanted to pursue.
The highlight of my studies has definitely been my 12 month work experience with the Carlton Football Club. I was able to work with established athletes and alongside the soft tissue team, which helped me gain priceless knowledge and hands-on experience. The experience opened my eyes as to just how many different job opportunities Myotherapy offers.
As well as working with athletes, I’ve gotten great experience at onsite student clinic, which works just like a “real world“ clinic. It has allowed me to work with patients and given me a strong foundation if I decide to run my own business. Having someone come to you and thank them for relieving their pain and discomfort is so incredibly rewarding, and reminds me why I enjoy what I do.
At the moment, my dream job is to keep working with established athletes at either an AFL club or in another field. I’d also love to build a solid client base in my local area and start to look offering more services and expanding my skills.“
