We are excited to welcome our newest member to the team Clinical Myotherapist – Elizabeth Ruach. So you can get to know Elizabeth we asked her some questions about Myotherapy and the areas she is passionate about in her treatments.
She is a wonderful addition to our team here at Essendon Natural Health.
When I was younger, I had my heart set on becoming a lawyer. But things changed dramatically when I was 17-year-old when I started to take my athletics training seriously. However, with any sport it comes with the high risk of injuries. And I got badly injured in 2015 which ended my athletics season. I worked closely with myotherapist to recover from that injury I was so grateful for everything he did for me. And just like that I became a myotherapist too.
Myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction, pain and a decrease in flexibility/movement. Myotherapist’s uses a variety of techniques including deep tissue massage, dry needling, trigger point therapy and myofascial release to treat a wide range of muscular conditions (acute, chronic and overuse injuries).
I absolutely love managing sports injuries. I also find lower body very interesting so anything from lower back down.
Anything from SIJ disfunction, general lower back pain to plantar fasciitis and anything in between. Essentially I can treat any muscular-skeletal condition.
Being an athlete myself, I can definitely resonate with other athletes especially when it comes to injury management.
(PS we’re all athletes in our own right- whether that’s playing sport, keeping up with the kids or getting through the day to day tasks)
I also just love Empowering, Educating & Motivating others about Health & Fitness.
Outside work, you’ll find me in a gym, athletics track or at a café eating an almond croissant with a large almond cappuccino.
Elizabeth is available for consultations on Monday and Wednesday each week, if you have more questions please call the clinic on 03 93378572 or you can book online.
