The therapists use a range of treatment techniques, such as localised massage, cryotherapy, cupping, trigger point therapy, myofascial dry needling or corrective exercise. They are trained in assessing a client’s body posture, muscle function and movement in more detail than remedial massage therapists. 

 

Benefits of myotherapy

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascial dysfunction.

Myofascia is the thin, fibrous sheets of tissue that surround and separate muscles. Ligaments and tendons are comprised of bundled myofascia.

In myotherapy, the aim is to find the cause of the client’s symptoms and treat it. The client may present symptoms, such as headaches, but that may be a secondary issue. The symptom can be caused, for example, by trigger points in muscles in the chest, in the front of the neck or even from incorrect body posture.

Myotherapist looks for what causes the symptoms and treats the appropriate area(s).
Myotherapists use massage as a treatment tool but hardly ever rely only on massage. Myofascial dry needling is myotherapist’s signature tool.
