How can a myotherapy session can help with overall health?
We’re glad you asked. If you have no idea what a myotherapist does, you can think of them as a sports massage therapist but with more training and techniques in their toolbox.
Myotherapy is a type of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascia dysfunction. The myofascia are thin, fibrous sheets of tissue surrounding and separating your muscles. Your ligaments and tendons are comprised of bundled myofascia.
Your problems could be the result of a previous sports injury, over-training or over-loading of muscle groups, poor posture, or just general wear and tear of daily life.
Myotherapists use specialised massage techniques, stretching techniques, cupping and dry needling to treat the problems you present with. It can help with many issues such as:
Deep chronic aching
Muscle tightness and stiffness
Sore spots in the muscle (known as ‘trigger points’)
Reduced joint mobility
Recurrent tingling or ‘pins and needles’ sensation
Tiredness and sleep problems
You won’t need a referral from a doctor to make an appointment with a myotherapist at the Signature Wellbeing clinic.
