Myotherapy is a fairly new practice, and a lot of people aren’t quite sure what they do.

It is slowly making grounds all across Australia and becoming a staple in the Healthcare Industry. So here is a short post to let you know what they do and you can see if this treatment is right for you.

So, what is Myotherapy? What a Myotherapist does, is in its name. “Myo” meaning muscle, and “therapy” meaning treatment intended to relieve or heal a disorder. So, a Myotherapist treats the soft tissues through massage or other means, which include muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments, and nerves to help reduce your symptoms of a condition and get you onto the path of recovery.

It is an evidence-based approach that can treat a whole wide range of conditions, acute and chronic. It involves looking at your posture, asking questions, going through different range of motions and special test to narrow down and give you a unique treatment specific to each client. At the end of each treatment, you will be given corrective exercises to help maintain and build upon what was discovered in the treatment. A Myotherapy treatment can involve deep tissue massages, Swedish massage techniques, dry needling for muscular or neuro conditions, cupping, pre-event or post-event sports massage, trigger point therapy and many more.
