Breaking Barriers in 2020

Each and every day we run through a constant cycle of pleasantries, generally beginning with a seemingly default dialogue of: “Hi, how are you?” “I’m good thanks, how are you?” “I’m good too” Well… think about that. Is that really the truth? If it is, then that’s great. But if not, then perhaps there is some way to combat these barriers. That’s always the hard part.

What is Myotherapy?

As some may know, I am currently studying to become a qualified Myotherapist. What you may not know is how Myotherapy differs from Remedial Massage! The term 'myo'  translates to 'muscle', so Myotherapy simply means muscle therapy. Similar to Remedial Massage, there is a heavy focus on soft tissue and correcting any pains and ailments you may be facing. Many Myotherapists incorporate massage as part of their treatment, but can also offer a range of other modalities to aid you back to optimal functioning.

An Intro to Myofascial Cupping

What is Myofascial Cupping? Believe it or not, the history of Cupping Therapy dates back as far as ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic writing around 1500 B.C. Early Chinese medical writings on the use of cupping were focused on its purpose during Chinese Surgery; primarily to restrict blood flow to the surgery site, and later assisting the body to remove disease and infection. Cattle horns and cross sections of bamboo were applied for cupping treatment in those times.
