Myotherapy focuses on evidence based assessment and treatment of soft tissue injuries, muscle and joint dysfunction and pain. A myotherapist uses treatment techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, dry needling and cupping, plus an extensive evaluation to restore function of any affected muscles, joints and nerves.
Myotherapists use various soft tissue manipulation techniques during treatment such as trigger point therapy, dry needling, deep tissue massage, hot and cold therapies, passive/ active muscle stretching and cupping. The care does not end when you leave the room as corrective/rehabilitative exercises or postural re-education may be given so as you can continue your recovery at home.
Generally appointments are 45mins, although depending on how many areas of the body require treating, 30mins and 60mins are also available.
A practising myotherapist must hold one of the following qualifications:
Courses take three years for either BHSc qualification for the AdvDip (Myotherapy). Once completed graduates of these qualifications are eligible to join Myotherapy Association Australia and to qualify for Myotherapy provider status with private health insurers.
Sarah holds her qualification from RMIT and is a registered member of Myotherapy Association Australia.
