Clinical myotherapy involves the use of advanced hands on manual techniques and a variety of other treatment techniques to reduce muscle tension and trigger points associated with aches and pains, sports and occupational injury, and muscular dysfunction. A wide variety of techniques are used including:

Myotherapy is applied to restore and maintain muscle integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia) as well as joint and nerve functioning. Pain or symptoms caused by muscle (myo) or fascia is described as myofascial. Myofascial pain is usually poorly localised and is often described by the patient as a 'deep ache', 'tightness' or 'tenderness' in an area. It often varies in intensity and radiates to other areas in the body.
