What is myotherapy?
Myotherapy primarily treats pain and restricted joint mobility caused by dysfunction of the myofascia – which is the continuous, flexible tissue that covers your body’s bones and muscle. In treating such issues, a myotherapist may use techniques including deep tissue massage, dry needling or trigger point therapy, spinal mobilisation and myofascial release to promote efficient healing.
How do I know if I need myotherapy?
Signs that your muscle fascia may be injured and require myotherapy include stiff joints, deep nagging pain or tension, numbness, sore spots in the muscle, reduced joint mobility, recurring tingling, tightening of muscles and unexplained fatigue.
