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 dealing with ongoing lower back and neck pain, I sought out Amber's expertise to help manage the pain and reduce stiffness. 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!
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.
I have severe back and neck pains which is managed by regularly seeing an osteo and remedial message therapist. When these treatments doesn’t give me enough relief, I find myotheraphy works and gives me a longer relief between treatment. I used a myotherapist before but unfortunately stopped operating. After trying out a few and failing to find a good therapist, I was referred by a work colleague to see Michael. I’m glad I did as I am getting the treatment that works for me and have had similar methods from my previous therapist. I always feel so much better and gain better movement after my treatment.

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.
Myotherapists complete an advanced diploma of remedial massage. The additional things covered in an adv dip are dry needling, advanced assessment, exercise rehabilitation, ultra sound, tens and cupping. In general a myotherapist has a broader range of techniques to use in treatment.
