Targeted pain relief. A combination of hands on tools such as dry needling and trigger point therapy combined with world class movement therapy and easy to understand pain education. If your problem is related to joint, muscle or nerve, Myotherapy can help!
A big part of feeling better is strengthening beyond your aggravating movement or activity. We use a combination of Pilates & strength training to balance your body to stop the pain returning. This can be done at home or with us. We offer solo and small group classes.
We find some of our customers just need a really good loosen up, that’s why we offer Remedial Massage alongside our Myotherapy and Rehab Exercise consultations. Great for general muscle tension, pre or post sport and for stress relief.
Our tool kit
The great thing about MyoThrive is the amount of tools we have in our tool kit. We can also take you beyond the initial healing phase all the way through to enhancing how you feel and perform. This also means if you’re not sure what appointment type to book, rest assured we will keep in mind all of our tools and skills to help you best.
What’s in our toolkit?
Dry needling works very quickly on the nervous system to stop the pain and contraction cycle. If there’s an area in spasm it’s one of our go to methods to help calm down your pain so you can start moving better.
Hands on Therapy
As Myotherapists our forte was traditionally being hands on with therapy. We haven’t lost our touch here at MyoThrive however we do use less hands on methods as we know so many things that work better both in the treatment room and in the research. We use trigger point therapy, pain and injury massage and mobilistaion of joints and muscles to increase blood flow, calm your pain complaint and help you to move better.
Cupping is fantastic for releasing tight fascia that prevents the muscle from being able to relax properly. Fascia encases the muscles and is connected all over the body. Latest research shows it has more of a connection with the nervous system than the muscle so we want to make sure it’s in tip top shape. A key way to know if your fascia is a problem? Is the pain sharp when you press on an area versus dull? We predominently use active cupping where we slide the cup or move your body part. This works much better for fascia than the traditional method of sitting the cups until the big bruises show up. We also use plastic cups with no fire, so it’s very safe.
Here at MyoThrive we all have extra training in movement therapy and we do fortnightly training sessions together where we get to learn from each other on stuff we’ve recently learnt or great results where getting from a particular method. We use the McKenzie Method and Mulligan Methods quite a bit for releasing pain related to the protective mechansisms that occur with pain. We have found time and time again that this is a quick and effective method at resolving pain and once we find the right movement and dose you can continue to treat yourself! We also love mobilistaion techniques and Clinical Pilates movements to free stuck areas and get you moving properly again!
So many people now associate the word “exercise” with negative images of someone slogging it out on a tredmil or lifting weights that are too heavy. Here at MyoThrive the word “exercise” has a much more holistic meaning. Basically we want you to be stronger than your pain but we also work with a lot of busy people so we are going to keep it really targeted on exactly what you need to get better the quickest possible way. If you love the gym and sport we can absolutely adapt your program to assist in this way but if you don’t have time to do 10 exercises a day, lets keep it simple and test what you need to do to improve first!
THE MYOTHRIVE POINT OF DIFFERENCE
Many of our customers comment on how differently we do things here… We would say we follow a 3 step process of “remedy and mend”, “retrain muscle, joint and nerve” and finally “forget the pain and have fun“. We believe in this process so much as we have seen it achieve amazing results for people time and time again – we even have it written up on our wall! We surveyed our customers and these are some of the things they had to say: “Effective and efficient“, “Highly professional and knowledgable“, “Delves into the causes as well as treating the symptoms“, “Confident they can provide immediate relief“, “knowledgeable, observant and skilful”, “improved my confidence” and “Brilliant in my recovery and getting me back to full fitness. Stronger than before.” It sounds like all this would require you to sign up for some kind of membership right? We hear that a lot too! We rely on helping people and having them refer their friends and family to us rather than signing people on for lengthy treatment plans. Everyone heals at their own pace, some people only need to come once and other’s choose to enrol into our Pilates classes.
