Wayne believes that poor gait and movement patterns coupled
with poor mobility and motor control will result in nerve
entrapment, tight adherent muscles, tendons and fascia and
is the cause of most pain and dis-ease states of the body.
Think about this, the effect of damaged or adherent muscles
and fascia can be compared to a garden hose with a kink or
bend in it. The normal flow of water is blocked and the
garden is not watered sufficiently. When a similar
disruption in muscle and soft tissue occurs, the normal
functions of the circulatory, nervous, endocrine and
lymphatic systems are diminished or blocked and the tissues
and organs nourished by these systems are not properly fed.
Wayne's specialised treatment essentially "balances" the
body by increasing mobility, correcting movement patterns,
resetting muscles to the correct length and tension through
the nervous system, releasing tight adhered fascia and
putting tendons, ligaments and joints back where they should
be which in turns reduces pain, improves movement patterns,
enhances mobility and restores the natural flow of blood and
Then your body is strengthened and lengthened so that all
correct movement patterns are re-programmed and remembered.

Wayne is often described as "the person who fixes the
problems everyone else has given up on"
Wayne Stafford provides a
specialist treatment that provides fast and permanent cure for
all types of acute and chronic neuromusculoskeletal pain. A
"fusion" of techniques drawn from the following modalities.
- Musculoskeletal Physical
Therapy - Working with the skeletal, muscular and fascial
systems of the body to release restrictions, restore
mobility and ensure blood and lymphatic fluid flows freely
and nourishes the tissues. Our treatment works on the
principle that great movement is critical to pain free,
unrestricted living. If the body is not optimally moving
through both the gait cycle and day to day functional
actions then joints and soft tissue will be compromised by an
underworking and scrambled neurological system. Treatments
such as Gait Analysis and Correction (with special attention
to the joints of the feet), Osteopathic Techniques such as
Muscle Energy Techniques, Strain-Counterstrain, Joint
Manipulations\Mobilisations and Structual Integration
Techniques are all utilised to follow our underlying
principle of Mobility, Stability and Motor Control then
- Anatomy In Motion (AiM) -
Anatomy in Motion (AiM) Gait Therapy is a cutting-edge
method of correcting postural problems, relieving pain,
helping with injury-repair/rehabilitation, reducing the
likelihood of future injury and improving physical
performance. It requires very little equipment and is based
around very different principles to most exercise therapies. For
starters, the importance of the feet and the hips are not
overlooked. It can be incredibly effective, incredibly
quickly. You can see our mentor Mr. Gary Ward in an
appearance on BBC-One's "Doctor in the House" by clicking

movement exploration by clicking
- Proprioceptive - Deep Tendon
Reflex (P-DTR) - P-DTR addresses musculoskeletal problems by
focusing on an important, but largely overlooked apparatus
of the human body: the mechanoreceptor system. Think of the
receptor system as “software” and bone, muscle, ligament and
tendon as “hardware.” As with computers, hardware problems
are best addressed at the level of the hardware, but when
the problem is at the level of the software, no amount of
work on the hardware can fix the problem. Most everyone
knows that muscles move the body and the brain moves the
muscles. Fewer are familiar with the simple fact that it’s
th mechanoreceptor system (software) that provides the brain
with the information it needs to tense and release muscles
as needed for good functioning and pain-free living. Without
accurate “uncorrupted” information from the mechanoreceptor
system, the brain-muscle connection cannot function
optimally. Breakdowns in this communication can result in
chronically weak or chronically tensed muscles showing up as
pain and/or difficulty with movement.
- Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) -
NeuroKinetic Therapy is a sophisticated assessment and
treatment modality that addresses the causes of
dysfunctional movement/coordination problems at their root
in the motor control center in the cerebellum. The motor
control center stores these patterns and directs their
completion through the spinal cord and the muscles.
- Fascial Manipulation -
Fascial Manipulation© is a manual therapy that has been
developed by Luigi Stecco, an Italian physiotherapist from
the north of Italy. This method has evolved over the last 35
years through study and practice in the treatment of a vast
caseload of musculoskeletal problems. It focuses on the
fascia, in particular the deep muscular fascia, including
the epimysium and the retinacula and considers that the
myofascial system is a three-dimensional continuum. This
technique is highly effective in the managment of pain and
dysfunction and presents a complete biomechanical model that
assists in deciphering the role of fascia in musculoskeletal
- Active Release Technique -
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue
system/movement based technique developed by Dr. P. Michael
Leahy that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments,
fascia and nerves. Active Release Technique is known
throughout the world as "The Gold Standard in Soft Tissue
- Clinical Myotherapy -
Balancing the muscular system so that all the muscles of the
body are the right length & tension when they are at
rest & when they are working. Treatments include SLM
Myotherapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Scar
Tissue Treatment with Laser Acupuncture and Myofascial Dry
- Tendon and Ligament
Manipulation - Putting tendons and ligaments back in place
so they function optimally and without restriction.
Techniques used are from Goltech Therapy, Lester Cox Tendon
Manipulation and Hatchard's Way Tendon Manipulation

science, Eliza undertook a podiatry degree at Latrobe University
graduating with honours. In addition, Eliza also has a
bachelor of education from Deakin University.
