Jesse @geelongmyowell

Myotherapist and MYO WELL Founder
Jesse is a qualified Myotherapist, Mat Pilates instructor and a member of the Myotherapy Association of Australia. Find him treating in the clinic and facilitating our lunch-time stretch and mobility sessions at the Movement HUB.

He has a keen interest in keeping people healthy and mobile. Through his extensive myotherapy & massage experience and through living an active lifestyle, Jesse truly understands the benefits of a regular movement practice.

“Our bodies love movement. The nervous system, joints, muscles and everything else in the body needs movement to function at its best.”

Jesse also works alongside professional athletes to help increase strength & mobility along with preventing and rehabilitating injuries. He is a therapist for the Geelong Cats, St Albans Football Club and local dance studios to name a few. Combined with his interest in surfing and hockey he has been exposed to a wide range of injuries and conditions, giving him a wealth of experience on how the body moves best.

Through his training and experience, Jesse prefers to take a whole person approach with treatment, giving clients the best possible chance of recovery. Dry needling, myofascial release, massage, cupping, joint mobilisations, MET, pain education, stretching and strengthening exercises are some of the techniques that might be applied during a session.
Seeing the big smile on a clients face when they get back to doing what they love is the biggest reward. Outside of MYO WELL Jesse enjoys family time, surfing, running or having a good catch up with friends.
