What is Myotherapy? Manual treatments focused on the treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.
What is the difference between Myotherapy and Remedial Massage? They are similar in that they both treat a range of non-specific soft tissue pain and ailments. Though with Myotherapy, there is a broader range of techniques used. Such as dry needling, muscle energy techniques, stretching, exercise rehabilitation.
Within your treatment with Heidi, you may go through a range of testing and assessments to determine the source of pain or discomfort. Heidi will then use a range of soft tissue techniques to help relieve you of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, sports injuries, pregnancy discomfort and more.
