Myotherapy is a specialised musculoskeletal therapy based on the latest developments in pain science. It is a holistic, multi-modality approach for the treatment of soft tissue and skeletal pain and mobility. The diverse skill set of a Myotherapist means they can treat a wide range of conditions as well as tackle more complex injuries. The therapies used can be tailored to your needs and preferences.
Myotherapy focuses on a whole-body assessment and applies a combination of skills including advanced deep tissue massage techniques, myofascial release, joint mobilisation, dry needling, trigger point therapy, cupping, corrective exercise, fitness assessment, nutrition as well as self-help and education. Myotherapists are being embraced by people who like to be in charge of their own bodies and actively participate in their own recovery.
