Myotherapy is a method for relieving pain by applying pressure to the trigger points throughout the body. The pain may be caused by occupational or other injuries as well as by disease, physical stress, and emotional stress. Trigger points seldom occur in the same place where the pain is felt.
Myotherapy is effective in removing 95% of all physical pain associated with muscle discomfort. It is successful in people suffering from many types of head, back, and neck pain. It also relieves the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, and arthritis. People suffering from multiple sclerosis experience reductions in swelling.
Athletes who undergo myotherapy often experience enhanced physical performance.
