Remedial massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes. The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem.
Problems with the muscles can trigger or radiate pain to other parts of the body. Remedial massage aims to trace the original reason for the pain, tackling both the cause of the problem and the symptoms.
Myotherapy is the evidence-based assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.
Myotherapists treat a wide range of conditions including
-Hip and knee pain
-Shoulder pain including rotator cuff issues
-Musculoskeletal pain and discomfort associated with pregnancy
Myotherapists utilise massage in treatments, but also incorporate a wide range of other evidence-based treatment approaches and skill-sets including dry needling, thermal techniques, rehabilitative exercise prescription, and education about pain and load management.
