Myotherapy Melbourne (Brunswick & Niddrie)

Northern Myotherapy specialise in the treatment of soft tissue – muscle, ligament, tendon and fascia. The purpose of our treatments is to provide pain relief, re-establish and preserve this tissue function, to prevent injuries and accelerate healing. While the main focus of a myotherapy treatment is on soft tissue, this will also provide added benefits to your nervous, skeletal, circulatory and lymphatic systems, creating a holistic approach to treating your presenting complaint.

After the first treatment I instantly felt better, plus Amber also provided me with home care advice, self massage techniques and exercises to complete at home to help reduce my discomfort in-between sessions!

  • review rating 5  I started seeing Amber to help with severe cramps and knots in my legs from playing football. I haven't had a cramp since our second session of dry needling, and the weekly exercises she suggested have helped improve my range of motion past my preseason limits. Truly a miracle worker.
