Becoming a practicing myotherapist requires the completion of one of the following qualifications:
- BHSc (Clinical Myotherapy)
- BHSc (Myotherapy)
- AdvDip (Myotherapy)
Training typically takes three years for either BHSc qualification or two years (including pre-requisite DipRM) for the AdvDip (Myotherapy). Increasingly myotherapists are opting for degree level studies and in both cases, programs of entry with advanced standing exists for applicants who have completed related studies. Once completed graduates of these qualifications are eligible to join Myotherapy Association Australia and to qualify for Myotherapy provider status with private health insurers.
