How does Myopathic Muscular Therapy work?

Years of movement and fighting the forces of gravity slowly take their toll on our bodies. This results in aches and pains and restrictions in the full range of movement of our joints and limbs. Even the connective tissue, or fascia, get affected by these restrictions and become painful and tender when moved. The nervous system also transmits the tensions of the mind to the muscles of the body and makes them stiff. Inflammation also reduces the supply of blood to many essential parts of the body.

Myopathic Muscular Therapy seeks to alleviate these aches, pains and restrictions by restoring the supply of blood and the nervous system to its optimum function. In this manner, Myopathic Muscular Therapy is similar to other therapies because it does not only try to eliminate the areas where pain or restrictions are encountered, but rather uses a holistic total-body approach to tackle the underlying problem of poor blood supply and nervous sensation.

This unique form of therapy is based on the Osteopathic principle. This principle states that when the structure of the body is in good condition, all the associated bodily functions will also take place efficiently.

Residual tension in the blood supply and nervous system can lead to restrictions which in turn hampers proper bodily function. Myopathic Muscular Therapy reduces residual tension and restores normal circulation of blood and nervous impulses by inducing relaxation of the tightened muscles.

Initial treatment is normally carried out in three separate sessions. The therapist uses these sessions carry out Myopathic Muscular Therapy and to determine its effectiveness upon the tissue. The therapy itself consists of various manipulations and applications of manual pressure. The resistance and force is slowly increased so as to further coax the muscles and tissue into responding. Once the initial three sessions have been completed the therapist decides on the number of sessions that will be required and the treatment methodology to be followed to gain optimum results.
