REMEDIAL MASSAGE / MYOTHERAPY
WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE
Remedial massage is a specialist soft tissue treatment with a range of benefits, including resolving pain, management and prevention of injury, as well as managing health in everyday life, such as tightness and soreness that can arise from stress, work, or recreational activities.
We encompass a range of massage therapies, including sports massage, remedial massage, and relaxation massage. Sports massage offers pre-competition massage to prepare an athlete for intense activity, designed to stimulate blood flow, invigorate muscles and energise the body.
WHAT IS MYOTHERAPY
Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy which treats pain through examining the surrounding structures in the body which may be contributing to the pathology of the injury, rather than just isolating the injury for treatment. Through this, they can restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures.
Myotherapists can use a range of different techniques, including remedial massage, dry needing, trigger point therapy, and stretching.
At South Yarra Spine and Sports Medicine, our resident myotherapist is Romy Ansell.
