Myotherapy is a type of physical therapy which is used to treat and even prevent soft tissue damage and related restricted joint movement which is caused by muscle or myofascia dysfunction. Myofascia are the fibrous tissue which envelope and separate muscle.
The Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy (22316VIC) at the Melbourne Institute of Massage Therapy gives the opportunity of further enhancing the clinical and treatment skills attained at Diploma of Remedial Massage level.
Additional to the remedial massage skills learnt in the Diploma, the Myotherapy student uses treatment regimes and clinical orthopaedic assessments to
enhance the overall treatment plan.
Subjects such as myofascial dry needling, therapeutic exercise prescription, nutrition, electrotherapy and business management subjects increase the skills of
the remedial therapist.
