Myotherapy & Sports Massage
A trained myotherapist will look at one’s overall health picture – your past & current injuries, your exercise routine, your goals, and how you move & function – before deciding on how best to treat.
Massage techniques, cupping, dry needling and even a TENS machine can be used. A full assessment is usually carried out, then a re-assessment.
How is myotherapy different to remedial massage?
Myotherapy is often viewed as the bridge between remedial massage and physiotherapy, or a more advanced form of bodywork. There may be more of an in-depth study as to what is behind a client’s presenting problem.
A remedial therapist will also consider a client’s background factors, while emphasising a lot more “hands-on” treatment – hitting trigger points, releasing fascia, stretching the client.
Sometimes a firm, targeted session is just the tonic the client needs.
About Sports Massage
A highly effective treatment for clients in running clubs, that visit the gym regularly or compete in sports teams. Vigorous rubbing techniques are used to warm up muscle tissue. Long, deep strokes – through large muscle groups such as the quads and gluteals – can help eliminate toxins and lactic acid from the body.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy involves the therapist locating and deactivating trigger points, which are often wound-up muscles that have been damaged or are bundled up.
This targeted therapy is an effective way to reduce muscular spasms by introducing new blood flow into the affected area.
