What is Myorthotics?

Do you have a spinal problem?

Do you suffer from a sore back or neck?

Do you have aches and pains in your muscles?

Are you always stiff and sore when waking and throughout the morning?

So many people suffer from the complaints above and assume that it is quite normal. They can be heard saying things like -

“I am getting old” or “it is because of all the sport I did when I was younger”, and last but not least “It is because all the injuries I sustained throughout my life”.

I can tell you for a fact that it does not have to be that way, the body has an amazing way of healing itself and restoring the natural balance. Myorthotics helps to assist and speed this process up.

Myorthotics may be the answer for you!!!

Myorthotics is a simple muscle, ligament, and sinew relaxant technique which is designed to relax contracted soft tissues which may be placing uneven strains on the vertebrae.

Simple to Perform

This non-invasive, non-chiropractic technique is very effective for the relief of joint pain, muscle pain, and spinal pain. It is simple to perform and can take 15 – 20 minutes for each patient.


Myorthotics was the brain child of the late, great Robert Lucy, founder of “The College of Somatic Studies”

Muscle Support

Myothotics means “Myo” for muscle and “orthotics” for support and relaxant, for it is a muscle support and relaxant technique.


As the muscle and other soft tissue of the body assume their correct length and position, they release their pressures on the spine and the spine then assumes a position which is comfortable for the patient.

Myorthotics is a non-invasive soft tissue technique involving ligaments and muscles. When muscles spasm, joint spaces can be narrowed and nerves trapped in the spasmed fibre.

The ligaments that join muscles to bone each have a channel to move in. If these ligaments are not in their correct channel, they become inflamed and swollen, causing pain.

By using specific myorthotic points, it is possible to relax muscles, and using finger pressure, re-align ligaments in their correct channels.

Few points to remember after a Myorthotic:

Do not use any form of heat on body for 12 hours following treatment. no hot baths or showers.

When sitting Sit straight with both feet on floor.

Do not sit for more than one hour at a time without getting up and moving around.

Do not sit in a cold draught or go swimming in cold water for 12 hours following treatment.

Take it easy for 24 hours, no exercise.

No massage for at least 5 days after.

Experience has shown that any of these things appear to bring fluid to the area treated, and can float the soft tissue out of their normal position.

Happy Customers

I have been going to Chris for the past 5 years and I have found Myorthotics was always great for me. I always walk out of there feeling so different, 100% better. I would recommend this treatment to anyone who suffers from back pain or discomfort. Chris is such a caring person.


I’m 61 and have suffered from a bad back, ribs, neck, legs and shoulders for a very long time. I was a wreck! I’d been to numerous physios and chiropractors over the years. About 10 years ago a workmate told me about Myorthotics. I’d never heard of it, but she said her husband, a builder, found the only relief he’d had for his chronic injuries had been with Chris Tompson. I’ve found this to be true for me as well. The treatment is quick and effective immediately. I always walk out feeling so much better and relaxed as Chris works on the soft tissue of the whole body, head to toe, and aligns everything back to where it should be. I’ve referred my friends to her as well and they find her treatment just as effective.


Since my father in law introduced me to Chris many year ago, she has always shown a genuine commitment to my health and never fails to deliver the results I’m looking for, very often exceeding my expectations. I have recommended Chris too many of my family and friends who are now regular clients of hers. I would encourage anyone to visit Chris who is looking to improve their health and put a bounce back in their step.


had been suffering lower back pain for years when I heard about Chris Tompson. Within days of my first visit the pain had disappeared. With regular maintenance visits I have found that the pain I had suffered previously is kept under control.


I have a lot of problems with my neck shoulder and hips, my hairdresser refferred me to Chris who does Myorthotics. I have never heard of this method of treatment before, I had tried Chiropractors and other techniques to no avail but Myorthotics really works, I feel like a million dollars after Chris has worked her magic, I have referred many people to Chris and will go on doing so. Maybe other have ongoing issues like me that could be greatly relieved by a trip to Chris.


I’ve been seeing Chris for Myorthotics for the past 5 years ... This is an amazing process, and really gives the body a chance to heal, to let go ... anyone having issues with their bodies, do yourself a favor! Go see Chris and let the magic unfold. I do not really know how or why your treatments have helped my so much – but they have. Since coming to you I have not had a full on migraine and have no more pain from Rotor Cuff problem. Prior to coming to you, I spent many thousands of dollars on multi Physio appointments, but I was never pain free, until I started seeing you – Thank you.


Dancers strive to keep their bodies in flexible mode and ballet dancing is about maintaining strength and long lines. Kay Flynn has found the Myorthotics system helps keep her dance students in great shape. "It is an idea! support for growing stress pain in young students and the gentle, non-invasive approach is excellent" Christine Tompson has been practicing Myorthotics for over 27 years and it is part of her Naturopathic treatments available at her Mermaid Waters’ clinic. "It is designed to relax contracted soft tissue placing uneven strain on the vertebrae," Christine said. "Ballet dancers need incredible back strength and it’s good support treatment to stop minor injuries becoming a problem to their craft." The treatment system was invented in Australia focusing on our active population. "It helps with spinal alignment, which is an essence for vitality and energy," said Ms Tompson. "It suits athletes as well as dancers as it is very effective for relief of joint and muscle pain that often comes with intensive training programs." The hands-on treatment takes about 20 minutes, which works in with busy schedules at the Kay Flynn Dance Academy. "One young dancer was having hip problems due to a growth spurt and it meant cancelling from a performance unless it was relieved;" said Ms Flynn. "The Myorthotics treatments worked and saved any disappointment." Naturopath Christine Tompson also offers overall health consultations, identifying problems using Iridology and Symptomatology.
