Zuzana GaalovaMyotherapist / Massage Therapist / PBMT Therapist
I have been working in the manual therapy industry since 2007 when I finished my massage therapy studies. After few years of practicing, my passion for learning about human body and its neuromusculoskeletal system led me to completion of BHSc Myotherapy degree in May 2018. Towards the end of my studies I was introduced to photobiomodulation (low level laser) therapy and absolutely felt in love with its healing potential. Following my inner calling, I decided to purchase 2 of these healing devices and opened Nova Therapies studio in Sydney. Apart from manual therapies and photobiomodulation therapies our studio offered yoga, meditation and Wing Chun Kung Fu classes. We regularly serviced variety of clients, ranging from ex-professional surfers and weekend warriors to chronic pain sufferers.
Nova Therapies closed its doors in 2020 due to the world's situation and my family's traveling plans around Australia. After almost 2 years of exploring and navigating our lives we have settled down in beautiful Port Macquarie and I have returned to my passion, which is helping people with their neuromusculoskeletal aches, pains, injuries and such. This time without having a big studio and offering yoga, kung fu and meditation. My treatment room(s) are based at our home and my available treatment hours are a bit more limited due to the family commitments, rest assured certain arrangements can be made by appointment.
My treatment approach focuses on finding the cause of the clients’ symptoms or dysfunction, and developing an individualised treatment plan that incorporates a combination of manual therapy techniques, photobiomodulation therapy, exercises and home-care strategies to achieve your desired goals. I love hands-on treatment and my favourite techniques are massage, myofascial cupping, dry needling, soft tissue stretching and joint mobilisation.
I am a member of the Massage & Myotherapy Association (AAMT) and the Australian Medical Photobiomodulation Association (AMPA).
