The word Myo is Latin for muscle, therefore

Myotherapy = Muscle therapy

Myotherapy treats muscle and soft tissue injuries that cause pain or affect movement.

Myotherapy works to treat and prevent injuries by correcting and rehabilitating the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) of the human body.

Depending on the particular problem, the Myotherapist may use a combination of the following treatments:

  • Deep tissue massage
  • Trigger point dry needling
  • Cupping
  • Thermal therapies (heat & cold)
  • Electromechanical stimulation (TENs)
  • Myofascial stretching
  • Corrective & rehabilitative exercises

As Myotherapists we treat the cause as well as the symptoms of a wide range of muscle and soft tissue conditions.

When to see a Myotherapist

  • When pain lasts longer than a few days
  • When movement is restricted
  • During the rehabilitative phase of an injury
  • Those showing symptoms of pain associated with stress or strain
  • Those suffering chronic conditions affecting mobility

How Myotherapy can help

  • Relieves muscular tension, spasm and cramps
  • Deactivates trigger points (knots in muscles) that cause local and referred pain
  • Promotes healing by stretching soft tissue and increasing blood flow
  • Increases joint flexibility and range of movement
  • Shortens healing time
  • Enhances muscular function and strength by increasing the efficiency of muscles.
