Karlie is an extremely thorough, knowledgable and analytical therapist, who has observed patterns in my body and it’s response to treatment that amazes me…
I cannot recommend her services highly enough.
After weeks of treatments from other practitioners in Wodonga and spending lots of time and money without any results I was referred to Karlie by a friend of mine. After only two treatments with Karlie the problem was resolved and I was completely pain free.
I have nothing but praise for her work. Using her training, skills and intuition, Karlie works to treat the body as a whole while still concentrating on specific areas that need attention.
Karlie is an absolute professional with highly developed diagnostic skills and is passionate about freeing her clients from pain. I take my family to Karlie and I highly recommend her as a wonderful practitioner.
Karlie @ Muscle Matters treats my whole family. She is amazing at how she picks up on ailments and treats them. I highly recommend Karlie to everyone.
Even my father travels over an hour to see her…
I came to Karlie in poor physical shape and in a lot of pain. As a farrier, I can’t afford to be in a physically compromised state and I have found Karlie’s skill set integral to keeping me going. Without Karlie’s skilled treatment I would not be able to continue my line of work.
After thirty years of struggling with back pain I decided to try an alternative treatment. Four years ago I tried Karlie at Muscle Matters and have been very happy with the results. She is always very professional, punctual and provides a thorough treatment.
I have always found Karlie to be highly professional and dedicated to achieve the best treatment results. I would not have been able to continue playing netball without her amazing skills and advice. I highly recommend Karlie
As a retired police officer, I have received numerous injuries in my line of duty. I am blessed that Karlie’s therapy has made my life comfortable and manageable.
I find the preventative maintenance treatment paramount to my wellbeing. With various muscle complaints arising due to my daily work routine Muscle Matters keeps my body from breaking down. The regular treatment is paramount to my ability to keep working and has always been of a high standard.
Karlie is excellent in her field of expertise & always pin points my ailments.
She is passionate, open & very knowledgeable.
Definitely knows her profession!
Prior to seeing Karlie at Muscle Matters I was having serious troubles with my back and shoulders. Since having what I call my regular panel beating sessions I feel much better and look forward to each treatment.

Myotherapy and Massage…
What’s the difference?
Myotherapy and Massage are two distinct professions, with different aims and objectives, different health fund rebates, and very different educational pathways. In common with physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors, myotherapists may use massage in their treatments, when warranted, but they also call upon a wide range of other evidence-based treatment approaches and skill-sets which in addition to manual therapy, dry needling, and thermo and electro-therapeutic techniques may include; exercise prescription and/or education about pain management, load management, activity modification and/or lifestyle modification. In common with the aforementioned allied health professions, myotherapy has it’s own separate qualifications, specifically the BHSc (Clinical Myotherapy), BHSc (Myotherapy) and AdvDip (Myotherapy), which qualify practitioners to undertake evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.
We are proud to be a stockist and huge fan of a range of locally made, chemical free, natural and organic products from Balance Naturally. Our Myotherapy and Massage sessions are enhanced by the use of their magnesium balm, which has been carefully adapted in conjunction with Balance Naturally for use in our practice as a massage medium.
This provides our clients with two distinct advantages.
- The superb healing properties of magnesium and other essential elements are clinically proven to help repair and maintain healthy muscles and skin, including increasing synaps functionality in the nervous system allowing greater muscle performance.
- It is the perfect medium for massage as it eliminates friction but won’t leave you feeling oily, smelly and uncomfortable after yout treatment.
