Introducing new Nurture Practitioner, Hannah Cole, specialising in myotherapy…
Ever since I can remember I always wanted my career to be something in the medical industry, to be able to help people. Realising something like general medicine wouldn’t suite me, because of the treatment style and approach Complimentary Medicine started calling my name. When I finished high school I decided to take steps and start a career in physical therapy. I have been working and studying in the physical therapy industry for nearly 8 years. I have a Diploma in Remedial Therapy and just completed a Bachelor of Health Science in Musculoskeletal Therapy from Endeavour College of Natural Health in December 2016 and looking forward to using my new found knowledge to help both inform clients and help them improve their daily life.
What does ‘Nurture’ mean to me?
With today’s busy lifestyle it is important to take time out to look after your own health and well being. Many of us work stressful jobs which take a toll on our bodies. How can you be expected to perform your job to the best of your ability if you are in physical pain, which we all know can be debilitating and distracting. So why not let yourself be nurtured? Take the time to look after your body and working towards improving it and your quality of life.
What therapy do you practice?
Myotherapy (Musculoskeletal) Therapy and Massage Therapy How does your work impact your clients’ lives? Musculoskeletal Therapy (MST) offers my clients a one-on-one personalised and caring approach to prevention, correction, rehabilitation and treatment of musculoskeletal pain and conditions. I look at the muscles, joints and nerves combined to be able to get the most clear picture of what the condition is and the best treatment approach and how to correct any present issues.
The best feedback you have ever received?
“After my first treatment with I have had no migraines, fewer headaches. Its made my quality of life so much better.”
What inspires you?
People who go after their dreams, take chances and put their whole hearts into what they do.
What is your passion?
I love being able to help people, inform them and give them tools to help improve their quality of life for themselves. Fortunately I am able to do that with musculoskeletal therapy. The human body is fascinating and its capability for repair is incredible. I developed an interest in treating headaches, migraines and neck pain, which as a student studying became a very real issue for me. Through the years I’ve found several techniques with treatment and rehab which have proven effective. I want to keep expanding my knowledge and hope to one day specialise in paediatrics and congenital musculoskeletal disorders.
Who is your role model?
I have had a few good mentors in my years of training but my biggest role model would be Emrys Goldsworthy, he lectured me at Endeavour College and was a great inspiration to me throughout the last few years and during my studies. He was very knowledgeable about his field and he genuinely cared about his students.
What else do you enjoy in life?
I love yoga, visiting the beach, markets, fire twirling and going on adventures in my days off.
