Dry Needling & Myotherapy in St Kilda & Beyond

Stable Massage offers a number of complementary natural therapies in addition to massage, including dry needling and myotherapy. St Kilda, Prahran, Fitzroy North and Melbourne CBD locals can all benefit from our convenient clinic locations and our friendly and experienced therapists.

Myotherapy

Myotherapists assess and physically treat muscular pain, injury and dysfunction affecting movement and mobility. Symptoms can include reduced range of motion of muscles and joints, stiffness, fatigue, headaches, weakness, numbness, or a tingling sensation. Whether you’re seeking myotherapy in Prahran or nearby Toorak for a muscle injury or you’re looking for Myotherapy in Fitzroy North or Northcote to alleviate the pain of stiff joints, Stable Massage can assist with trusted myotherapy treatment.

Dry Needling

Our Myotherapists and massage therapists practice a technique referred to as ‘dry needling’ for the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. Myofascial dry needling is a therapeutic technique involving the location of active or latent myofascial trigger points in skeletal muscle and its associated fascia. Once located, the practitioner uses a sterile needle to probe and de-activate each trigger point.

Dry needling is a cost-effective and efficient technique for the treatment of myofacial pain, injury and chronic muscular dysfunction. This is why we incorporate dry needling into our myotherapy in St Kilda, Prahran and other clinic locations.

The approach is based on western anatomical and neuro-physiological principals, not to be confused with the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique of acupuncture. Dry needling is incorporated within the massage treatment.
