Why choose Forster Myotherapy?
Myotherapy is similar to the more familiar remedial massage, but covers much more.
Remedial massage or sports massage is a great way to treat a generally sore body. A remedial massage therapist will work on your soft tissue with a variety of techniques designed to relax your muscles, often through long, deep strokes, using the stimulation of pressure points within the muscles themselves to relieve tension, enhance circulation, relieve joint swelling, improve flexibility and help fight fatigue.
Myotherapy is all of this, and much much more.
A myotherapist is a health professional who is trained in the assessment, treatment and ongoing management of the wide range of musculoskeletal conditions which may cause postural issues, dysfunction and severe pain. Simply put, a Myotherapist is trained to find the source of your pain, use specific hands-on techniques to treat the issue, and help provide you with simple exercises, stretches and lifestyle changes that will help ensure your body stays pain-free.
As well as using all the soft-tissue techniques available to Remedial Massage therapists, a Myotherapist is further trained in a wide range of neurologic, functional, and orthopaedic testing, which helps them get a more thorough understanding of a client’s needs, enabling them to tailor the treatment for optimal results.
Along with massage, they may work with various other tools and modalities within your treatment in order to relieve pain and tension, including cupping, dry needling, myofascial release, hot and cold therapies, and joint mobilisation.
A Myotherapist can use all these treatment techniques to rehabilitate and restore the integrity of all the soft tissue structures: muscle, ligaments, fascia and tendons.
They are also able to recommend exercises that may help with getting you moving freely, and without pain.
