What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is a form of hands on, manual physical therapy which focuses on treating and preventing soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement. Muscular and soft tissue pain can be caused by dysfunctional movement patterns of the muscles, joints, soft tissues and surrounding myofascia.

Myofascia is the thin, fibrous sheet of tissue that surrounds and separates each muscle and organ. Ligaments and tendons are also made up of multiple bundles of myofascial fibres.

The philosophy of myotherapy is founded on Western medical principles, which aim to remove trigger points from the muscle which cause pain. A trigger point is a knot in the muscle which can cause pain. Myotherapists aim to remove the knot in the muscle, thus decreasing your pain. Myotherapists are the highest qualified musculoskeletal massage therapist in Australia, the course includes anatomy, physiology and biomechanics. Myotherapy is covered by most major health funds and you don’t need a referral from a doctor to make an appointment with a myotherapist.
