Relieve muscle and myofascial pain with Myotherapy, expanding beyond remedial massage using a wide range of treatments to aid muscle and joint recovery.
Myotherapy is the use of evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and conditions, where a highly trained therapist uses trigger-point release and a variety of other specialised techniques.
Myotherapists are highly trained health practitioners who incorporate a deeper understanding of the human body, anatomy and physiology into their massage techniques, along with remedial massage techniques, joint mobilisation, myofascial cupping, dry needling, corrective and rehabilitative exercise, taping, and prescriptive advice on muscle and pain management.
Myotherapy has particular success with long-standing back and compound injuries that have resisted previous treatment attempts. Once a serious injury is properly healed, further treatment is only needed if another injury is sustained. Sportsmen and women attend sessions regularly to ensure that unnoticeably small injuries are treated before they reduce performance and become debilitating. Myotherapy is an unusual form of massage in that it does not set out to relax the patient; the intention is more to fix a mechanical problem. However all-round health improvement is seen and can include better sleep, increased vitality and performance levels, as well as increased mobility.
Myotherapists can assist those who are experiencing pain, injuries or dysfunction. Myotherapists can also assist in prevention and early intervention of injuries and pain, and can manage chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
Before commencing treatment your therapist will get a full understanding of your medical history and your specific requirements. During myotherapy the client lies on a massage table, partly unclothed with areas of the body covered with towels or sheets for privacy and comfort. If you only want massage in your session, our practitioners all work in a similar way, whether they are remedial massage therapists or myotherapists, and will check with you throughout your session on pain and comfort levels.
