Shannon is a Myotherapist here at Melbourne Osteohealth. Having decided to further the skills she has been developing as a remedial massage therapist, Shan recently completed the Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy. She is also a qualified personal trainer and sports trainer, Shan loves to combine the knowledge and tools of all three fields of interest to provide comprehensive, caring treatment to her clients.
A former “suit” and graduate of a Bachelor of Commerce, Shan has first-hand understanding of the postural issues and pain that can arise from long hours tied to a desk and she can help with creative solutions for reducing otherwise sedentary behaviours.
In any given treatment with Shan you can expect some assessment of your current health status so Shan can make an informed decision about which techniques and tools will be most beneficial for your treatment including: massage (lots of massage), cupping, dry needling, cold/heat therapy, stretching, joint mobilisation, taping and manual lymphatic drainage.
Shan is currently registered with Massage and Myotherapy Australia (formerly AAMT) and Fitness Australia.
You might recognise Shan as her alter ego, The Green Genie, a popular presenter of sustainable and healthy living topics around Melbourne. Shan is passionate about the environment and leading a waste-reduced life hence her life mantra “healthy people | happy planet”. Ask any time, Shan will delight in helping you with tips to green up your life, home and office.
