What is Myotherapy? 

Myotherapy is derived from the Greek root "myo" meaning muscle.

Muscles, ligaments and tendons are the soft tissues of the body integral to supporting the bony structure of the human skeleton. Soft tissues can be damaged or irritated in accidents, sporting activities, by using incorrect posture, from over-use (repetitive activities) or under-use, disease, or by physical and emotional stress. This damage sometimes presents as a lump or knot in the muscle. Myotherapy aims to restore maximum mobility by correcting and rehabilitating the injury and preventing its recurrence.


When you feel muscle pain you will feel the following symptoms:

  • Deep and constant aching
  • Muscle tightness
  • Sore spots in the muscle (myofascial trigger points)
  • Stiff joints
  • Numbness
  • Reduced joint mobility
  • Recurrent tingling, prickling or ‘pins and needles’ sensation
  • Unexplained tiredness


A myotherapist uses a variety of treatments to improve the integrity of the muscle and other soft tissues. We use the following:

  • Soft tissue manipulation
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Dry needling - applying small needles
  • Stretching
  • Corrective exercises
  • Thermal therapies (heat and cold)
  • TENS machine
  • Myofasical cupping

Correct treatment and maintenance of trigger points, helps to reduce pain, soreness, tightness, restriction of movement and muscle tension.
