ResilienceMT offers many pathways to achieving optimised individual health and physical performance. Our treatment and training programs are diverse as they are specialised.

For example, a person training for weight loss will find utility in the high-intensity workouts offered by Boxing and Muay Thai. An older adult with chronic back pain will benefit from clinical myotherapy and the gentle exercise of Tai Chi. A young woman seeking general fitness and self-defence will benefit most from the practical techniques offered by Wing Chun Kung-Fu. Furthermore, an athlete seeking sports injury rehabilitation will require a tailored clinical myotherapy and functional strength training program.
