Workplace Injuries

Believe it or not, but many injuries can result from a sustained posture or position whilst at work; for example, continuous lifting or overhead work, sitting behind a desk or leaning over a patient. Even sometimes just the long travel to and from work can cause pain and dysfunction through areas of the body.

Many people spend months and even years changing other parts of their lifestyle including diet, physical activity or sleeping behaviour to counteract the pain and discomfort they feel during the day. Yet most of us don’t realise we are often sacrificing our body’s posture, to fit within our workplace, rather than changing our work environment to fit with our bodies.

At heart&soul clinical myotherapy, we believe changing the work environment to fit with our body’s range of movement and postures is imperative to help maintaining and reducing discomfort and episodic pain.

We work closely with the patient to firstly indentify and reduce the pain and discomfort, then work on maintaining the decreased level of pain by equipping the patient with the knowledge and education to assess and modify if needed, the workplace ergonomics. A huge emphasis is also placed on strengthening areas of the body, so that it can cope with an altered, sustained working position if needed.

We treat a wide variety of workplace injuries including:


  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Upper/Lower Cross Syndrome
  • Shoulder Injuries
  • Wrist Pain
  • Lower Back injuries including disk dysfunction
  • Sciatica
  • And many more occupational related injuries…


As our daily lives become busier, and our work or family life takes over, many of us seem to slowly decrease the amount of physical exercise we do. As time goes on, and weeks turn into months our physical activity is almost non-existent. Our days are taken over by work and family time, and before you know it, our bodies have adjusted to a life of work and no exercise.

This lifestyle can cause our bigger, stronger muscles to take over every day movements, and inhibit our little, weaker muscles from doing their jobs. This behaviour can in time, come with many subsequent issues for the body, including headaches, lower back pain, sciatica, and in worse case scenarios, disk irritations and damage.

At Advanced Healing & Diets, our goals are to make patients aware that these types of postural injuries can occur, to help decrease the pain associated with postural dysfunction, and to also equip the patient with the knowledge and education to help treat and maintain the dysfunction and prevent it from interfering with the patient’s daily life.

We treat a wide variety of postural dysfunctions/injuries including:


  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Upper/Lower Cross Syndrome
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Disk Dysfunction
  • Achy or Tied Legs
  • And many more occupational related injuries…


Pre/Post Natal Massage and Pain Prevention – 45min

Modalities used include:

  • Pre- Natal Massage
  • Postural Correction to help realign the centre of gravity
  • Reduction of Sciatic Nerve Impingement; associated with pelvic positioning
  • Lymphatic Drainage
  • Patient education in contraindication points

pregnancyPre-Natal Massage

Specific massage therapy used on expectant mothers, to ease pregnancy associated pain and discomfort. Patients are positioned accordingly, in a comfortable, safe and relaxing position, often using a body pillow for stability and comfort. Throughout this treatment, patients are educated on the contraindicated points on the body, and any questions are answered in relation to pain and posture, during pregnancy.
Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic Drainage is a specific massage therapy using gentle, rhythmic pumping actions to help with fluid movement and drainage, within the body’s lymphatic system. Lymphatic Drainage whilst aiding in the reduction of swollen feet and ankles and other conditions commonly seen in pregnant women, is also very relaxing and pain free.

Postural Correction

During pregnancy, as the body changes shape, patients often change the way they perform tasks or activities to accommodate the body. These changes can produce pain and discomfort, and the associated muscles can become weakened and aggravated. Postural Correction can help rebuild the loss of muscle strength and help re-gain correct posture, whilst reducing pain.

Reduction of Sciatic Nerve Impingement

As the pelvis changes positions to accommodate child birth, the Sciatic nerve is commonly compressed; causing neural symptoms directly down the posterior aspect of the leg. By slowly releasing the surrounding muscles, taking note of the contraindicated points in this region; the pain can be relieved. However as the pelvis is continually moving, this treatment is of an ongoing/maintaining nature.

Patient Education on contraindication points and essential oils

According to Chinese Medicine, there are specific areas or points located on the body that are to be avoided during pregnancy. These points are not always clearly outlined, so educating the patient on the specific areas is very important, especially for individuals who have had previous miscarriages or have found it difficult to conceive in the past. Many Essential Oils are also contraindicated during the first trimester of pregnancy, due mostly to the nausea component that women experience in this stage.
