Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement caused by muscle or myofascia dysfunction. Myofascia are the thin, fibrous sheets of tissue that surround and separate muscles. Ligaments and tendons are comprised of bundled myofascia.

Myotherapists provide evidence-based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for a wide range of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions, for example:

  • Back pain

  • Neck and shoulder pain

  • Headache

  • Sports injuries

  • Rotator cuff problems

  • Occupational injuries

  • Achilles tendinopathy and other ankle injuries

  • Jaw pain and clicking

  • Fibromyalgia and other chronic pain presentations

  • Tennis elbow


Pregnancy Massage

Myotherapy treatment during pregnancy can assist with blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, and the release of muscles and tendons which are placed under higher stress due to the growing baby.

By alleviating trigger points which cause myofascial pain and dysfunction, together with promoting relaxation through massage, postural imbalances can be improved and pain levels controlled.

We have facilities for women to be able to lie face down comfortably through their entire pregnancy.
