What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy can be described as a holistic physical therapy. It involves manual therapy aimed towards rebalancing the body, reducing pain and improving body movement. It’s like a massage, but with a more defined purpose. In addition to manual therapy, other techniques may be used such as dry needling and cupping, as well as exercise and lifestyle education. Myotherapy attempts to treat muscle or myofascia dysfunction. Myofascia are thin strips of body tissue that lie in between muscles. They also make up ligaments and tendons. The theories underpinning myotherapy are from the Western medical model, and include anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.

Do I Need a Referral?

You don’t need a referral from a doctor to see a myotherapist. You can refer yourself to an appropriately experienced and qualified professional.

How do I Know I Need Myotherapy in Melbourne?

If you are experiencing any of the following, it could be myofascial pain, and treatment by a myotherapist could be beneficial:
  • Constant aches
  • Tightness in muscles
  • Isolated sore parts
  • Less mobility in joints
  • Stiffness of joints
  • Numbness or pins and needles
A qualified myotherapist has a range of tools in their toolbox for addressing myofascial pain. They may use manual therapy, dry needling and cupping on your body, as well as other techniques. All of these work towards returning the physique to a balanced, pain-free state.

How Do I Find the Right Myotherapist for Me?
