Myotherapy is a physical therapy that focuses on treating the soft and connective tissues of the body by drawing on a variety of modalities such as Remedial Massage, deep tissue, sports, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, positional release and stretch or exercise advice, as well as Myofascial Dry Needling, Myofascial Cupping and Nutritional advice. Used appropriately, myofascial soft tissue techniques can promote healing of the muscular system as well as the nervous, skeletal and circulatory systems. Our Myotherapists are registered with the Institute of Registered Myotherapists of Australia (IRMA) which promotes the study and understanding of myofascial pain & dysfunction, and fosters high principles & standards of work practise. Myotherapy sessions normally run for 30 minutes, 45 minutes or 60 minutes, depending on your requirements and the treatment regime planned by your practitioner.
