Melissa Breheny

Myotherapist
Melissa has been a practicing myotherapist since graduating from the Australian College of Sports Therapy in 2003. Early on in her career, she has had a strong association with chiropractors, having worked in two other chiropractic practices before joining the team at Simply Health Chiropractic. She firmly believes myotherapy compliments chiropractic.

Melissa is a member of the Institute of Registered Myotherapists Australia (IRMA). She is an experienced and skilled practitioner with a special interest in the correction and prevention of muscular ailments. She helps in the treatment of a wide range of conditions including tension headaches, tennis and golfer’s elbow, frozen shoulder, back and neck pain, fibromyalgia, shin splints, overuse injuries, strains and sprains.

Her style of treating muscular conditions is more targeted and specific to the problem area, whilst keeping a holistic approach and looking at the body as a whole. Techniques used are deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial dry needling (acupuncture needles into the trigger points of the muscle), myofascial stretching and corrective exercises.

Outside of her practice Melissa keeps herself fit with pilates, running and living a healthy lifestyle.
