Myotherapy is a therapeutic system based on a combination of modalities including trigger point therapy, zone therapy, referred pain theory, dermatone theory and psychogenic pain theory. The purpose is the revitalization, rehabilitation and re-education of the bodies holding patterns, restoring physical health and full range of motion. Myotherapy begins by finding the holding patterns of the body and then using different methods and tools to position the body in order to release these patterns. The body is moved in such a way to engage and disengage muscles while also activating and releasing trigger points. The skeleton is articulated in a way to help release and stretch the muscles. The goal is to have full range of motion by moving the affected joint and stretching the area and corresponding muscles in order to release holding patterns.
