Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy, more specified on treating complex musculoskeletal issues. Our Myotherapists specialise in treating and preventing soft tissue pain, along with injuries. Myotherapists are extensively trained in the use of joint mobilisation techniques and use these techniques to treat stiffness and to help avoid injury effectively.

Myotherapists utilise a wide range of treatment techniques including remedial massage, trigger point therapy, dry needling, joint mobilisations, cupping, hot and cold therapies, passive and active stretching, electro-therapeutic modalities and corrective and rehabilitative exercises to restore and maintain the healthy integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and fascia).

Our team has experience working with athletes of all levels and those that train regularly in the gym.

Myotherapy involves an extensive physical evaluation and an integrated therapeutic approach in the treatment of affected muscles, fascia, joints and nerves. Myotherapy treatment aims to help you recover, perform better while improving your muscular strength, flexibility and decreasing your pain.
Contrary to popular belief, Myotherapy is not a form of massage therapy. However, your therapist may use massage techniques throughout your treatment if it is necessary for the treatment of your presenting condition. Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy developed from evidence-based assessments, treatment techniques and rehabilitation exercises. A Myotherapist is extensively trained to treat neuromusculoskeletal (muscle, joint and nerve) pain and dysfunction.
At your first appointment, your Myotherapist will complete your full medical history, including prior illness, injuries, and surgery. Next, the Myotherapist will ask about your symptoms and conduct an assessment which usually involves an in-depth look at your posture, how you move, what hurts, what movements aggravate your condition and what muscles, joints and nerves are affected.
Your treatment depends on your assessment and your goals. Myotherapy uses a range of different manual therapy techniques, exercise rehabilitation, postural education, movement coaching and pain complex education.
