myotherapy

MYOTHERAPY

Myotherapy relieves pain by treating muscles, soft tissue, ligaments and tendons. It is an evidence-based assessment, treatment and
rehabilitation for a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Myotherapy massage is utilised to promote circulation and blood flow to create a healing effect within soft tissues. These techniques are designed to heal, rather than just relieve the symptoms of a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.
