Massage and Myotherapy
What Is Massage and Myotherapy?
Massage is a natural therapy involving pressure and manipulation of the body’s muscular system. A massage therapist uses certain techniques, such as effleurage and kneading, as well as heat and stretching, to work the muscles and release tension within the body. Massage Therapists are qualified practitioners and their treatments comprise an integral part of the healing process.
Myotherapists primarily use Massage as their main tool, however they also apply a wide range of other techniques such as Dry Needling, Acupuncture, and Joint Release amongst others.
