ASCA level 1 S & C coach
Karl completed his diploma at the Australian College of Fitness and Bodywork and has years of working experience in clinics around Melbourne.
Besides been a Remedial Massage Therapist, Karl is also currently completing his Masters in Chiropractic, finding that both chiropractic and remedial massage therapy can really complement each other in treating a wide range of conditions which include myofascial pain syndrome, lower back pain, shoulder issues and neck problems.
Coming from a background of power lifting and having completed his level 1 strength and conditioning ASCA accreditation, Karl has a keen interest in the area of treating sporting athletes using a combination of the therapy techniques like deep tissue massage, cupping, sports taping and exercise therapy. Besides sporting conditions, Karl treats a range of chronic and acute soft tissue injuries including arthritic pain, fibromyaligia, strain/sprain injuries and general tightness/stiffness.
Karl has volunteered as part of his university studies to treat the athletes of Fitzroy Stars Football club alongside other selected students in his year level and found it to be a rewarding experience.
Karl strongly believes that self-management education alongside correct treatment therapy are two of the key elements in enabling a person to take control of one’s health.
