Myotherapy involves the soft tissue treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia to address dysfunction and pain and help facilitate natural healing. For athletes, this enables faster recovery and potential for effective and efficient sports performance. For everyone else, this means moving comfortably.
Myotherapy services offered will almost always include a clinical assessment of the presenting condition, careful consideration of previous injury, illness or medical history, and discussion around other relevant factors which may be causing dysfunction and resulting in pain (eg. work posture, running style, muscle overload, stress, nutrition, lifestyle). A major aspect of your positive outcome will be learning to understand your injury and/or pain.
Many acute and chronic pain causing conditions can be assisted by using hands on remedial massage techniques along with great advice and handy tips for self management that you may not have considered or been offered previously. Hands on techniques may include myofascial release, trigger point therapy, transverse friction, muscle energy technique, stretching and mobilisation. Treatments may also include cupping, dry needling or taping, with informed client consent.
