What is Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is the treatment of the soft tissue structures of the body. This includes muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. People often seek the help of a myotherapist for feelings of stiffness, tightness or aches and pains.
A myotherapy session consists of a body exam followed by treatment. This can include soft tissue work, passive/active muscle stretching, trigger point therapy, dry needling, cupping, soft tissue release and exercises.
Treatment is tailored and depends on the problem or issue. The patient choice for the type of techniques used during the treatment is also taken on board.
What is the difference between myo and remedial massage?
Both treatments are hands-on forms of therapy. The myotherapists in Essendon have an extra qualification and have done more study. This enables them to draw from a greater number of soft tissue techniques such as dry needling where needed.

As part of your session your myotherapist will explain their findings and your issue in some detail. Some advice may be given such as making dietary changes. The myotherapist Essendon may also advise treatments to use at home. These may include;
- exercises and stretches for your issue
- heat or ice packs
- relaxation techniques
The therapist will work with you to find factors that may be making your issue worse. Such factors might be poor posture, scoliosis or over training. They will help you find ways to avoid or reduce these factors.
