Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy® is a gentle, hands-on technique that relieves muscle related pain.
It works by deactivating trigger points. Trigger points are irritable spots in the muscle that are caused from injuries in a person’s life. Injuries from even birth, surgeries, accidents or repetitive motion in sports or occupations can aggravate the muscle and produce trigger points. Myotherapy is useful because it works by removing trigger points by applying light pressure to the muscle and finding spots of intense sensitivity. Pressure is then applied to the muscle for a few seconds. The client getting the treatment determines the quantity of pressure. When pressure is applied to a trigger point, it can be uncomfortable, but an ounce of discomfort is well worth the relief you receive.
Hilot is a traditional healing art massage from my home country of the Philippines. It is a healing art that is not taught in schools or colleges but is passed down from generation to generation within families.
