What a standard session looks like?

Your initial appointment will involve a comprehensive history, a full-body postural/ biomechanical assessment as well as appropriate hands-on treatment and rehabilitation plan. The aim of the consultation is to evaluate the condition of the muscle tissue with testing and palpating (touch), of the affected muscles, joints and nerves. We can then assess which of the varied techniques we can use for your body to respond better too reset the tissue back towards its natural state and functional movement. 

What are the everyday benefits of Myotherapy?
