What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascial dysfunction.

We specialize in injury and pain management, postural correction and preventative care.

Myotherapy consists of assessing, treating, and managing the pain associated with soft tissue injury and restricted joint mobility which has been caused by myofascial or muscle dysfunction. It is a holistic approach of injury management as the whole body is taken into account as well as your specific issue.

What is Fascia?

Fascia is a thick tissue that surrounds all your muscles and bones. Fascia runs from your head to your toes, hence damage in one area can affect other areas distant from the cause of the problem.

Fascia when in a healthy state is relaxed and soft, it has the ability to move and be stretched without restriction. When healthy it helps to maintain good posture, range of motion and flexibility.
