Welcome to Advanced Therapeutics

Advanced Therapeutics (AT) is a private clinical practice specializing in St. John Neuromuscular Therapy (SJNMT) for the relief of chronic pain, rehabilitation after musculoskeletal injuries, and enhancement of athletic performance. SJNMT is an extremely effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain, treating the source of the pain rather than just the effects.  For more information on SJNMT and the many conditions it can help, please check out FAQ about SJNMT.  If you’re an athlete, trainer, or coach and want to learn how SJNMT can help athletes improve their performance and reduce the risk of injury, please be sure to check out our Info for Athletes page.


In addition to the St. John Neuromuscular Therapy you receive, AT seeks to educate you regarding the nature of your condition and how to get and ultimately stay well, thereby helping you to take control of your own health and avoid unnecessary treatment and expense. To that end, you may be given homework - suggested reading, stretches and exercises to do - so that recovery and healing can occur as quickly as possible.


Clients are seen by appointment only, and a standard session lasts one hour, although longer or shorter sessions can be arranged in advance. The first visit normally runs somewhat longer, usually an hour and a half, and includes the taking of a concise health history and a thorough postural and structural analysis to determine the postural components that are causing pain patterns or impeding optimum sports performance. During evaluation and treatment, clients are asked to wear lightweight workout clothes, such as gym shorts for men, gym shorts or leggings and a sports bra or tee shirt for women. Clients are welcome to bring this clothing with them and change at the office. Payment is due at the conclusion of each session and may be made by cash, cheque, or EFTPOS.  


Our specialty is not covered by ACC, but when patients aren’t getting the results they want from repeated visits to ACC providers, or are frustrated by only getting temporary relief that doesn’t last, they are often pleasantly surprised to find that we can help them reduce or eliminate their pain in very few sessions at very affordable cost, as well as teaching them what they can do on a DIY basis at home or at the gym to help get and keep themselves out of pain.


Whether you’re suffering from acute pain from a recent injury, the aftereffects of overuse of your muscles in sport or at work, or the seemingly never-ending burden of nagging chronic pain that has been coming back time after time for many years, we’re the folks to see.  If you’ve already seen all kinds of doctors, health care professionals, and therapists, but still have your pain, that’s where we shine.  No responsible health care practitioner can ever guarantee 100 percent success with every case, but our track record in helping resolve pain problems where other methods have failed is remarkably good.  It’s not that we’re any smarter than anyone else (we’re not!); we just analyse the body differently and look at different things than others do, so we naturally find different information and get different results.


To contact AT for more information, or to make an appointment, please click here.  We’ll be happy to have a brief chat with you about your condition and let you know honestly if we think we can help.  We invite you to explore our site, then give us a call.  We look forward to helping you to achieve a pain-free life!
