Myotherapy,  is working not only with the  muscle but  it’s connective tissue and fascia. Assessment of the injury or discomfort and working with all of the soft tissue is what makes myotherapy so effective.

By doing this the results are longer lasting and you get to the source of the problem as well as treating the symptom, pain.  An example of this may be someone with constant calf pain when running, leading to a calf tear or achille’s inflammation. By working through the arch of the foot and seeing how you walk will alleviate the pain and make steps toward it dissapearing for good.

By looking at the body as a whole, function, alignment, muscles quality, fascial patterning the issue can be fixed and stopped from re-occuring.

Remedial massage, trigger pointing, accupressure, myofascial release, stretching, hold and cold therapy are just some of the techniques used in treatments
