What Is Myotherapy?
"Myotherapy" is a generic term for whatever it takes to restore balance to a person’s physical or emotional body. It is based on the belief that to release and rehabilitate the physical body, the body’s skeleton must move, or be moved, in such a way to release trapped muscles and, many times, trapped emotions as well.
Graduates are equipped with the skills necessary to assist in rehabilitating the client’s skeleton and muscles using a wide array of techniques. Therapeutic Myotherapy is one of the original programs offered at SWIHA and has been time tested for its comprehensive course of study.
