Myotherapy is a type of physical therapy which is used to treat and even prevent soft tissue damage and related restricted joint movement which is caused by muscle or myofascia dysfunction. Myofascia are the fibrous tissue which envelope and separate muscle.

The Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy (22316VIC) at the Melbourne Institute of Massage Therapy gives the opportunity of further enhancing the clinical and treatment skills attained at Diploma of Remedial Massage level.

Additional to the remedial massage skills learnt in the Diploma, the Myotherapy student uses treatment regimes and clinical orthopaedic assessments to

the remedial therapist.

Travis Maude - Head of Physiotherapy, Melbourne Victory Football Club

This weekend I attended the Introduction to Massage course. I was a little apprehensive to start with as it had been a long time since I was in a learning environment. The morning ice breaker enabled everyone to let their guards down and I became more at ease and settled into what was a fantastic course and learning experience.

I just wanted to let you know how fantastic the course was on the weekend. Catherine was absolutely wonderful to learn from and I was very impressed with the course layout, the notes and the structure.

I want to become a Massage Therapist or Myotherapist – what do I have to do?2019-06-28T03:14:12+10:00
The Certificate IV in Massage is the initial qualification you require to become a professional massage therapist and you can either upskill to the Diploma of Remedial Massage or enter directly into the Remedial course if this is your desired outcome. This allows you to join massage associations and obtain professional insurance. You can work from home, in a clinic, mobile massage or even in the corporate massage sector.  You can then continue studying and complete your Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy.

The prerequisite for the Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy is the Diploma of Remedial Massage.

Do I have to do an introduction course before commencing the Certificate IV in Massage or full Diploma of Remedial Massage?2019-01-21T06:44:10+11:00
Your first firm step in your new career path is to enrol in one of our Introduction to Massage intensive courses.  This is the first subject in your Certificate & Diploma course, but also a very worthwhile stand-alone course.

You can enrol in the introduction classes as a short course without registering for the full Diploma course.  This structure gives you two major advantages.

Firstly, it allows you to test the water before you make a full commitment to the Certificate IV in Massage or Diploma of Remedial Massage.  The Introduction to Massage is deliberately structured so it is the foundation for the full Diploma course and is also a self-contained elementary course that will provide you with enough skills to give people the benefit of massage around the home or at the work place.

If you have any doubts about your choice of a career in Massage, then the introductory course is a must so you can test your aptitude for massage at low cost before you commit to the full Certificate or Diploma course.

The second advantage is this – taking this first Massage subject gives you a flying start on your Certificate & Diploma course and a new direction in life.

We ask students consider the” Introduction to Massage” course. The reason for this is that the “Introduction to Massage” course gives you the chance to experience the quality of our teaching and most of all the thrill of healing with your hands. You can determine your new career direction and take the first step at the same time.

The “Introduction to Massage” also course gives you the benefit of learning massage without committing to the Certificate IV or Diploma course.
