Myotherapy involves muscle treatments that are designed to improve physical performance, aid recovery, prevent injury and reduce pain. People that receive regular myotherapy treatments report improvements in posture, sleep, flexibility and relaxation as well as a reduction of stress and anxiety.
As a core component of a balanced treatment plan, myotherapy is a beneficial treatment for a variety of issues including: chronic pain, work and sports related injuries, headaches and migraines, pregnancy, nerve and joint pain, fibromyalgia and post stroke pain.
Clients with repetitive strain injury (RSI), delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), lower back pain as well as general muscle soreness have all reported significant improvements in their condition post myotherapy treatments.
A myotherapy session at Zimmah Muscle Therapy begins with a taking of the client's history and assessment of their current condition. Depending on findings, treatment will consist of a combination of deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, cupping, dry needling, functional movement taping, lymphatic drainage and joint mobilization. Following treatment, clients will be provided with support and information including strengthening exercises, stretches and muscle maintenance advice.
