MYOTHERAPY ..

It’s So Much More than just Muscle Therapy!!

What is Myotherapy?

It’s a holistic form of physical therapy that considers not only muscle, as the name suggests, but joint, nerve, connective tissue, organs and the body as a whole structure. This comprehensive therapy considers the root cause of pain and dysfunction and treats on an individual basis, rather than focussing solely on the symptomatic area.

Myotherapy uses evidence-based techniques to achieve the best outcomes for each individual. These can include:

  • dry needling (with or without electrotherapy)
  • joint and spinal mobilisations
  • soft tissue (massage) techniques
  • stretching techniques
  • functional neurological techniques
  • vagus nerve stimulation
  • movement-based therapy
  • education
What conditions can be treated?

There are so many conditions that Myotherapy can help overcome, including:

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Sciatica, Carpel tunnel, pins & needles, and other neurological dysfunctions
  • Back & neck pain
  • Jaw pain / TMJ syndrome
  • Joint pain (eg – shoulder, hip, knee, ankle)
  • Tennis elbow
  • Sports &/or work-related injuries
  • Gut imbalances like IBS, SIBO, and food sensitivities

It sounds very similar to Remedial Massage … How do I decide which Therapy is for me??

Myotherapy is a more advanced qualification than the Remedial Massage Diploma. There is lots of cross-over between Remedial Massage & Myo, especially if you’re seeing a Remedial Massage Therapist with lots of experience. Essentially if you have a complex, chronic condition, or acute pathology, Myotherapy is an ideal choice for you.
