Brendon joined the team at Canterbury Health Hub in 2020 after completing his Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy at RMIT in 2016 and spending multiple years working within a clinical and sporting setting.
Since completing his Myotherapy studies, Brendon has focused his extensive training and professional development in further gaining knowledge about the musculoskeletal system and treatment for pain and preventative care. His predominant myotherapy treatment techniques include: Deep tissue massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Muscle Energy techniques, Myofascial Dry Needling, Cupping, Preventative Home Care Advice, along with Muscular and Joint Taping.
As a practitioner, Brendon is enthusiastic and dedicated about working with his patients to achieve their personal rehabilitative and/or preventative goals. Having previously worked within a clinical setting, Brendon has gained the experience to be focused and streamlined with his treatments for each individual client. Brendon’s further training includes several courses: Advanced Taping, Rocktaping, Advanced Dry Needling, Sports Trainer and Shockwave Therapy.
From a sporting sense, his experience is broad and specific to elite athletes. Being a Carlton supporter, Brendon was able to achieve a monumental personal goal of working within the club as a trainer and massage therapist for the Northern Blues during the 2015 season. Brendon’s highlight of that season was being able to treat his sporting hero Chris Judd! After experiencing what it’s like to work with elite athletes, Brendon has gone on to work with the best of the best, including:
- Victorian Fury (Elite Netball) 2016-17
- England Athletes (Able and Disable) at the Commonwealth Games 2018
- Richmond Football Club 2018 – present
For the past two seasons (2018 and 2019), Brendon has also spent time as a lead trainer for a local football team – East Doncaster. Within this role, he was able to work with other trainers to assist the team in winning back to back premierships. However, arguably his greatest achievement so far would be the experience of working with several Gold Medal winners at the Commonwealth Games. From netball, to triathletes, to wheelchair endurance races, Brendon considers himself a part of medal success! Currently, Brendon is also a Myotherapist at the Richmond Football Club and was heavily involved in the AFL and VFL premierships in 2019.
During his spare time, Brendon relaxes at home with his partner Amy and his 3 pet turtles! He also enjoys playing Snooker and Pool, along with watching sport and comedy tv / movies.
