What is the difference between Myotherapy and Remedial Massage?
Massage therapy is a type of manual therapy. Remedial therapists are the specialists in massage and focus on treating soft tissue injuries or soreness with different techniques of therapeutic massage. In contrast, clinical myotherapists use manual and physical therapy as well as pain management techniques and advice. Certain conditions, soreness or long term disease respond better with a mix of physical therapy and manual therapy. Clinical Myotherapy may help alleviating symptoms and be a powerful ally in chronic pain and acute pain management.
