What is a sports massage?

Sports massages involve the manipulation of soft tissue. The soft tissue in our bodies includes the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. Manipulating this tissue in the right way, i.e. by massage, corrects problems and imbalances caused by strenuous activity like exercise. Sports massage can be used both before and after exercise to improve performance, aid recovery and prevent injury and pain. Many different techniques are utilised during a sports massage. Our expertly trained team will adapt to the needs and desires of your specific treatment goals.

Myotherapy and Remedial Massage at Melbourne CBD Physio

Myotherapy and Remedial Massage is very adaptive depending on your goals for treatment. It can include relaxation massage, sports massage, lymphatic drainage, cupping, trigger point therapy, joint manipulation and general exercise prescription – which all draw on specific techniques. 

Melbourne CBD Physio offers Myotherapy and Remedial Massage as a combined service, led by Myotherapist, Aris Hua. Learn more about Aris here. 

Myotherapy and Remedial Massage can help break down muscle and fascial adhesions (commonly known as ‘knots’), which may be caused by heavy training and exercise periods or conversely a sedentary lifestyle. 

Many athletes use manual therapy to keep niggles at bay during the training week, or fine tune their body pre-competition. Aside from athletes, patients gain a lot from the feeling and ongoing preventative treatment of standalone manual therapy. Myotherapy and Remedial Massage can also be used to help supplement the space between physio sessions and maintain muscle movement, mobility and function.

Our approach to Remedial Massage 

True to form, we follow evidence based clinical practice to help understand how we can achieve the best outcome for you. We know that remedial massage can play a very valuable role in your physical and psychological health, as well as complementing your physiotherapy treatment. 

Appointments for remedial massage are 30 minutes or 60 minutes long. The remedial massage therapist will first chat about what you want to achieve in your appointment, and suggest the form of treatment that will help get you there. They can also refer you to our physiotherapists if they feel your presentation is more complex or better suited to physiotherapy than manual therapy alone.

Why our Myotherapy and Remedial Massage gets results

Myotherapy and Remedial Massage at Melbourne CBD Physio is driven by the latest research and evidence. A myotherapist must first complete their studios in Remedial Massage before going further to study as a myotherapist. 

Myotherapy can be effective at any stage of injury or concern. It can be preventative, corrective or rehabilitative. The cause of musculoskeletal pain and injury can often be myofascial. This is where the pain is caused by inhibited interactions between the soft and hard tissue structures. For the individual this may be described as the feeling of tightness, knots, stiffness or limited range of motion or flexibility.

It encompasses a range of hands-on techniques that includes trigger point therapy, joint mobility techniques, dry needling and myofascial release. Remedial massage helps with releasing muscle tension, improving circulation, recovery and relaxation.

Our myotherapists are adaptive and experienced in a wide range of techniques that they can combine to best suit your needs.The pressure used can be adjusted based on your exposure to massage ranging from deep tissue to smooth and relaxing.

When to see a Myotherapist and Remedial Massage Therapist
  • You spend prolonged periods seated (e.g. at a computer) 
  • You want to recover sooner from training or competition 
  • You feel stressed and tense
  • Your body feels stiff and rigid 
  • You want to find a way to relax 
  • You want to maintain your body through exercise

Athletes demand a lot from their bodies through heavy lifting, repetitive activity and pushing themselves beyond their thresholds of speed, endurance and power. This causes microtrauma in the body. With the correct recovery strategies, athletes can transform their training to see the most improvements possible. Myotherapy and remedial massage can give your body the care it deserves by assisting your recovery from heavy training, competitions or game days to alleviate soft tissue tightness, aches and pains. 

If you work from home, at a desk or spend long periods of time in a sedentary position, myotherapy and remedial massage can help with your neck, back and shoulder pain often caused by these lifestyle factors. Many office workers also experience hip, sacroiliac and low back pain as a result of poor posture and computer set up. Manual therapy can inject the energy back into your body by freeing up your back, hip and SI joints and ironing those knots in your neck and shoulders. A myotherapist can also advise on prevention strategies that you can take home with you.

What’s the difference between Myotherapy and Remedial Massage?

What’s the difference between Myotherapy and Remedial Massage?

  • The most simple distinction between Myotherapy and Remedial Massage is that Myotherapists have a higher qualification to employ a broader range of techniques and treatment strategies. A Myotherapist can still function as a Remedial Massage therapist, which is why we offer it as a combined service at Melbourne CBD Physio.
