Experienced, results focused therapists mean your massage gets to the root of the issue so you can stay pain free.

Our Brisbane myotherapists do much more than just massage. They are experts in diagnosing the underlying cause of your pain and addressing it using advanced massage techniques that are far more effective than massage alone. 

Do you have pain or discomfort? Need help recovering from sports or injuries? Musculoskeletal therapists / Myotherapists help patients overcome most types of body pain and discomfort. Their treatments involve a combination of massage and physiotherapy-like techniques to treat the cause of pain and discomfort where it is needed the most.  This means your treatment is targeted so that you can get to the bottom of your issue for long lasting relief.

With myotherapy massage you’ll need less sessions than remedial massage with the aim to correct your function as quickly as possible so you can go on to live a life without pain.

Remedial Massage or Myotherapy/Musculoskeletal Therapy?

While remedial massage is recommended for more basic complaints like sore muscles or achiness, musculoskeletal therapy or myotherapy (same thing, different name) is more appropriate when the issue is chronic, injury related or sports related. Brisbane Natural Health’s musculoskeletal therapists / myotherapists also can assess the cause of pain or dysfunction, so are great when you’re just not sure what the problem is. Musculoskeletal therapists / myotherapists employ a wide range of tests and techniques during your treatment, depending on what you need the most. Their base training is in remedial massage, but then advanced studies have given them what they need to really resolve complex and chronic conditions more effectively.

Some of the techniques that may be used during your treatment are:

  • Muscle and joint testing
  • Mobility and range testing
  • Specific massage techniques
  • Myofascial release
  • Soft tissue work
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Trigger point release
  • Joint mobilisations
  • Strapping

During your initial myotherapy massage appointment, you’ll be assessed by your practitioner using a number of tests. Your therapist will also ask you specific questions about your condition to determine what the best treatment will be for you. You’ll also receive an exercise and rehabilitation program if needed to help get you feeling good as soon as possible. More than just remedial massage, at Brisbane Natural Health, our myotherapists have the training and experience to help with a wide range of problems.
