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 ease or discontinue pain, re-establish and preserve this tissue function, to prevent injuries and accelerate healing. While the main focus of a 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.
Amazing, friendly, knowledgeable service! Alex was great.
Clinic is spotless, professional and has a great vibe. All therapists are experts in their area. Just had a remedial massage with Dan he was amazing and spot on with identifying my needs to release my pain. Dan has a lovely manner and a superior remedial therapist based on my experience.

Confusion between remedial massage therapy and myotherapy is understandable given that both modalities treat a range of non-specific soft tissue pain and ailments. The primary distinction between the two is the fact that myotherapists use a much broader range of massage techniques.
