What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy used to treat or prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movement.

The philosophy of myotherapy is founded on Western medical principles including anatomy, physiology and biomechanics.

You don't need a referral from a doctor to make an appointment with a myotherapist.
