Myotherapy is a gentle and effective therapy that focuses on muscles, ligaments, tendons, joint capsules and fascia – all of the connective tissues of the body.
Myotherapists diagnose, treat and offer prevention strategies for a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Myotherapy is of benefit to both chronic, long term problems and to treat recent or acute injuries and pains.
A Myotherapist is your go-to practitioner if you need help with any of the following:
- Strains and sprains
- Reduced range of motion
- Joint pain and immobility
- Pulled muscles
- Functional movement (important if your squats or running gait are a bit – *ahem*, -weird)
- Pain management
- Scar tissue rehab
- Rehabilitation of chronic or acute injuries (note that Myotherapy may help balance the body even after years have passed)
The benefits of Myotherapy
Myotherapy draws on the science and wisdom of several Western modalities. Utilising the most effective aspects of Remedial Massage, Osteopathy, Physiotherapy and other functional movement practices. Myotherapy techniques include deep tissue massage, trigger point massage and other specialised types of massage and stretching. They may also use cupping and dry needling to reduce inflammation and pain or stimulate blood flow and healing.
Myotherapists are masters of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. They look through a wide lens – viewing the body as a holistic machine rather than just individual parts. In this way, they play detective to work out where your imbalances may be coming from. And you’ll be surprised what they can find!
Your practitioner is skilled in prescribing rehabilitative exercises to help stretch and strengthen areas where alignment and weight-bearing is out of balance. This can speed your recovery and help to prevent future recurrences.
Regular myotherapy sessions can be especially helpful for people coping with chronic conditions or pain syndromes. Myotherapists also offer lymphatic drainage, a gentle technique that moves inflammatory fluid and helps decrease swelling and oedema in the limbs and trunk.
