Myotherapy (muscle therapy) is concerned with the treatment and restoration of muscular and soft tissue structures - tendons and ligaments, and the prevention of damage which may lead to pain and dysfunction affecting human movement. Myotherapy is a physical, drug free therapy and is part of the allied health professions. Through a careful comprehensive assessment involving muscle testing, palpating muscles for irregularities, and reviewing related matters such as posture, past injuries, daily activities and nutrition, a cause related to your symptoms can be identified and rectified to ensure long term relief. Myotherapy utilises comprehensive and natural approaches, and, combined with other complementary techniques it is used as a preventative, rehabilitative and corrective measure to keep muscles healthy and minimize stress related conditions - thus improving general health and wellbeing.
