This is one of those questions I get asked really often.
Myotherapy is still a fairly new term in the health world, its been picking up in popularity in Australia over the last 15 years or so.
My path into Myotherapy began in Remedial Massage, and I see a lot of similarities between the two modalities, as well as the differences.
A Myotherapist is a great option if you have an injury, a specific pain area, a recurring or severe pain, or a condition that requires more in depth knowledge and training. Plus a lot of Myotherapists, like myself, came into Myotherapy through a Remedial Massage background. By seeing a Myo for your pain you are likely to get a great range of techniques that feel good and are effective at relieving your pain.
For more widespread aches, pains and tension that are a little annoying but not stopping you from getting on with your day, a Remedial Massage can do the trick.
