A LIFE WITHOUT PAIN BEGINS HERE.
Dom McKay is a fully qualified Melbourne-based musculoskeletal therapist, registered to practice myotherapy, remedial massage and yumeiho therapy.
Dom draws from extensive experience and emerging breakthroughs in the health industry to empower his clients with the knowledge and support they need to achieve relief.
All clients will undergo a thorough biomechanical assessment specifically designed to determine the root cause(s) of their pain. While some practitioners compartmentalise the body into specific regions and symptoms, Dom examines the entire kinetic chain in a holistic assessment of the body.
A number of specialised techniques are offered to relieve and relax a broad spectrum of ailments. These include deep tissue treatment for the release of muscular and fascial tension; profoundly effective Japanese spinal and joint adjustments and a uniquely studied use of dry needling techniques for the treatment of muscle pain.
Applying Neuromuscular Integration to reconnect the body and brain through the nervous system, the individualised program will start with gentle activities such as Theraband exercises, body weight training, Pilates and Yoga before progressing, where necessary, up to heavy weight training.

Sally, GPDom has been my go to myotherapist and remedial massage therapist and for over 2 years now. He has looked after my body through two body building competitions and now as a crossfit competitor. I have seen Dom when my body is at it's peak and when it's been broken. Irrespective of its condition, Dom takes the time to listen to my concerns, he assess my body both on the table and in the gym.
Dom uses a variety of methods to improve the functionality of my muscles and joints, making me feel great and able to train and compete to the best of my ability. What is most inspiring is Dom's dedication to continually improve his knowledge and skill set. He is so passionate about getting his clients to move pain free.
I have been seeing Dom McKay for 14 months for the treatment of severe headaches and tension, which have troubled me for over 6 years. Prior to commencing my treatment, I believed I was suffering from migraines and even saw a specialist who wanted me to take migraine tablets indefinitely. After a few sessions with Dom, he found the underlying cause to be muscular and developed a personalised treatment for me.
Dom took the time to understand me, my condition and my stressors and in addition to minimising the frequency and severity of my headaches, has taught me valuable stretches and breathing exercises to assist me in stressful situations. Dom's ability to develop a treatment specifically tailored to my condition, coupled with his patience and professionalism, make him someone I recommend to my friends and family, or anyone who is struggling with muscular pain or tension headaches.
After suffering from shin splints for some time, I made my first appointment with Dom. No other therapist was able to give me the same relief that Dom was able to. The slow deep tissue style which Dom employs was extremely effective in treating my problem. His knowledge and intuitive approach creates a lasting result which I can highly recommend to anyone suffering from muscular conditions.

Dom has been treating me for over two years. From working at a desk job and having regular migraines Dom has been able to track the root of my muscular problems and maintain a treatment plan custom to me. Recently I had been in a car accident which resulted in sharp pains in my neck and head, Dom was able to treat these pains using a mixture of techniques bringing me back to my normal self. Dom has a holistic view in regards to his treatments and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I met Dom 2 years ago when I came to him with a very tight back. It was affecting my work and day to day life. My physio thought I had scoliosis because my back was so twisted. We started with deep tissue massage and strength training, and in no time he straightened me up and I was back in the gym. I even started seeing gains in my deadlift and squat as a result of his corrections to my form.
I'm glad I met him and still pay him a visit when I start getting tight. He knows his stuff and even when I had no idea what was going on with my body, he had the solution. Dom has also looked well after my partner who suffers from tension headaches, and went above and beyond to try finding out what was wrong and how to fix it. I recommend him to anyone who has been putting off looking after their body or anyone looking for a myotherapist.
I have been fortunate enough to have been seeing Dom for 2 years. As my condition was complex, it was Dom’s knowledge of pain education that helped me to understand the psychology behind my chronic lower back condition. Dom’s holistic approach not only resolved the issue but also enabled me to sustain the results.

After many years of intense sport activity, back pain and leg stiffness became a constant struggle for me. With a debilitating hip condition developing on top of it, I felt like my body was already a complete wreck at 31 years old!
Dom performed a full assessment of my posture and muscular condition. This has really helped me understand my body mechanics and why I was so ''out of balance''. Based on his diligent assessment, Dom worked out a perfect self-help treatment program for me. He introduced me to functional training as well as a number of tailored stretching routines which have almost entirely solved my lower back pain, hip, and forward head carriage issues. It was amazing to be back on track after only a few weeks!
Extremely patient and grounded, Dom is also a very friendly and intelligent man who has made his life a continuous learning experience. So whatever your issue may be, I am sure he will have a holistic approach to it.
