What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is a form of physical ‘hands on’ therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement. The philosophy of myotherapy is founded on Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. Techniques include massage, stretching, cupping and myofascial dry needling.
Myotherapists have a deeper understanding of the body, anatomy and physiology undertaking an initial three-four years of study plus ongoing courses.  The aim of myotherapy is to find the cause of your symptoms rather than to just treat the problem.

What to expect:

Your appointment will begin with the Myotherapist asking you some questions about you and the reason you have come in for treatment.  They will then ask you to perform a few basic tests so they have a thorough understanding of your body and where your stiffness, tension, stress or tension is originating.
Following this assessment your therapist will begin treatment which may involve massage, joint mobilisation, cupping, dry needling and stretching.  If you do not wish to receive a particular treatment please speak with your therapist.  It is common that some patients do not wish to receive particular techniques, for example, dry needling.

Comfortable, loose clothing

What to bring:

X-rays or Scans and reports
