A few words about me.
I moved to Noosa in April 2019 with my wife and two kids. We lived in Torquay Victoria for 6 years prior where I was working in a busy private practice with a bunch of legends who helped me to become the person and the practitioner that I am now. I studied and graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy from RMIT in 2017. Surfing is my thing and when I am not working you can find me at the nearest beach riding waves and when the surf is flat I love riding my mountain bike. I have also spent time sailing dinghies and I am still pretty keen on sailing (although it is a hard to find the time these days). I try to keep up with the world of sports, any sports. I decided to become a Myotherapist because in my mind there is nothing more rewarding than helping people to get back to doing what they love and feeling healthy and happy.
“Caring about others, running the risk of feeling, and leaving an impact on people, brings happiness.”
– Harold Kushner

You don’t need to be in pain to visit a Myotherapist. Once symptoms have settled treatment may focus on restoring optimal activity (rehabilitation), reducing the likelihood of further injury and keeping you moving and performing at your best.
How does Dry Needling Work?
Dry Needling assists with decreasing local muscular pain and improving function through the restoration of a muscle’s ability to lengthen and shorten normally by releasing myofascial trigger points.
When a fine filament needle is inserted into the center of a myofascial trigger point, blood pools around the needle triggering the contracted muscle fibers to relax by providing those fibers with fresh oxygen and nutrients, as well as by flushing away any additional acidic chemicals. This, in turn, leads to the decompression of the local blood and nerve supply.
When is it Appropriate to Use Dry Needling as a Form of Treatment?
Dry Needling can be used in treatment:
- to help release myofascial trigger points (muscle knots);
- to assist with pain management, and;
- to restore movement at a joint if inhibited by myofascial trigger points.
What Will You Feel During Dry Needling Treatment?
During a Dry Needling treatment, you may feel a slight sting as the needle is inserted and removed. However, this discomfort should last no longer than a second before settling. A brief muscle twitch can also be experienced during a Dry Needling treatment.
Where Does Dry Needling Fit Within Your Rehabilitation Program?
Dry Needling is one of many techniques that can be utilised by your Myotherapist to assist with your rehabilitation. Dry Needling is often used in combination with other techniques including massage, manual therapy, and exercise prescription.
What are the Side Effects of Dry Needling?
Everybody is different and can respond differently to various treatment techniques, including Dry Needling. In addition to the benefits that Dry Needling can provide, there are a number of side effects that may occur, including spotting or bruising, fainting, nausea, residual discomfort or even altered energy levels. However, these symptoms should last no longer than 24 to 48 hours after treatment.
Can You Exercise After Dry Needling?
It is recommended to avoid strenuous or high impact activities immediately after Dry Needling, to allow the body time to recover, and to maximise the benefits of the treatment.
