The vocational outcomes of the Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy are to:

• Establish and manage a myotherapy practice; including business skills and legal compliance.

• Manage health risks in a myotherapy environment; including aspects of health risk analysis, personal and premises hygiene, as well as infection prevention and control.

• Work effectively within a myotherapy framework; including working within clinic and regulation guidelines, achieving quality standards, preparing client education and health strategies, as well as ongoing performance development and working with other services/networks.

• Perform myotherapy clinical assessment; including accurately gathering and interpreting information to assess a client’s condition in order to provide myotherapy treatment.

• Plan myotherapy treatment strategy; including negotiating with the client.

• Provide myotherapy treatment according to the techniques and practices of a myotherapy framework.

• Provide myofascial dry needling treatments.
