Whilst completing his Diploma of Remedial of Massage at RMIT University and Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy at Kangan Bagman Institute Ilias had an appetite to gain as much practical exposure to this industry during his studies and begun a series of student intern role’s at Richmond FC in the AFL, followed by Melbourne Storm in the NRL and Melbourne Victory in the A League before completing his studies in 2007.

Once qualified Ilias had a passion to fast track his development and get as much experience as possible and did this through working at a number of different osteopath’s and physiotherapists clinic’s. During this time Ilias also spent four years working at Hawthorn FC in the AFL, it was here where Ilias had decided he was going to open his own business and soon after Muscle & Bone Clinic was born.

Ilias has a vast understanding of how to treat anything from in sport injuries to workplace injuries having adopted a method of trial and error to formulate his own style of treatment specialising in: Osteitis Pubis, Lower Back Pain, Knee Injuries and Rotator Cuff Injuries. This continual development through opportunities like traveling to America to observe a number of professional clubs from the NFL to the NBA has assisted Ilias in his knowledge of human movement, sports tendinopathy and keeping the body in optimal performance condition which can assist anyone from a professional athlete to those who like to treat themselves as professional athletes.

Ilias loves playing soccer, watching the NBA and one day would love to see his beloved St Kilda Saints win an AFL premiership.
