Michael Johnston

Chief Physiotherapist


After graduating from Latrobe University in Physiotherapy in 1995. Michael worked initially in Australia and from there worked and lived in the United Kingdom for 7 years. His passion to expand and further help his patients moved him in a direction to work more holistically. This sparked a new found passion in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. This interest culminated in Michael undertaking further study leading to a Masters degree in Acupuncture from RMIT in 2006 where he was awarded the outstanding academic achievement award for achieving the highest grades over the three year Masters program.

Last year Michael decided to specialize in the treatment of headaches and their underlying causes. He moved in this direction as he was finding the combination physio and acupuncture treatment was consistently giving powerful results to patients, many of whom had tried multiple other practioners and therapies without the benefit of relief.

Michael is an expert in the treatement of stress and specializes in the management of migraines and headaches using a uniquely integrated approach combining different modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine with Physiotherapy and other diverse medical techniques to help his clients not just get out of pain but to truly feel well.

Michael’s approach might just allow you to throw away your toxic pharmaceutical medications and to be free to live your life – the way you want it to be.

Outside of work Michael has a passion running, entering regular events. He also practices yoga and meditation which gives him the energy to keep up with his two young sons.
