FAQS

What is myofascial release?2022-03-22T01:12:44+00:00

Myofascial release is used to treat myofascial pain. This is caused by tightness and sensitivity in the myofascial tissue (this supports muscle throughout the body).

During myofascial release, you will massage and stretch rigid or tense areas of your client’s body with light manual pressure.

What’s the difference between a myofascial release and myotherapy? Do I need to know how to do both?2022-03-22T01:09:56+00:00

Myotherapists use myofascial release all the time. The main difference – myofascial release is a technique, whereas myotherapy is a practice.

Myotherapy is a form of physical therapy which focuses on the assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain or restricted joint movement.

When will I use myofascial release therapy?2022-03-22T01:09:04+00:00

Myofascial release training can be beneficial for myotherapists, sports massage therapists, remedial therapists, soft tissue therapists and physiotherapists.

Will I need to do practical experience?2022-03-22T01:06:47+00:00

What further studies can I take after I finish the course?2022-03-22T01:06:08+00:00
