Bikram Dey Adv Dip (Myotherapy), Dip (Remedial Massage)

Bikram graduated from RMIT with his Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy. He has also completed qualifications as a sports trainer.

Working with various sporting organisations such as Melbourne City FC, Melbourne United, and the Australian College of Basketball, has led to his passion for injury prevention and management. He was privileged to contribute at the Wellington Centre, treating patients with a variety of pathologies and musculoskeletal conditions.

Bikram loves the idea of helping his clients achieve their goals. He understands that there is more to his profession than just assisting people with pain. It is about improving one’s lifestyle and assisting them to not only follow through with their short-term goals but also their long-term ambitions.

Bikram’s former occupation led him to become aware of the sedentary lifestyles of people around him. It then became apparent to him that incorporating manual therapy and movement into one’s daily routine can greatly enhance their quality of life and overall wellbeing.

Bikram is constantly seeking to increase his knowledge base and repertoire of techniques. He also has long-term future ambitions of mentoring young Myotherapists in the industry to become the best practitioners that they can be.
