Myotherapy is a holistic ‘hands on’ manual therapy based on the principle that the body functions as an integrated unit. Myotherapy is a form of soft tissue physical therapy which focuses on the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated pathologies.
A myotherapist will use observation, examination and palpation of body structures (joints, muscles, tendons, and connective tissue) to make a diagnosis. Myotherapy incorporates not only the trigger point therapy, but also a wide range of soft tissue massage and manipulation including among others: muscle energy technique, dry needling, joint mobilisation, stretching, nutritional advice, exercise prescription, postural advice and education.
Treatment is safe for people of all ages including pregnant women.
