What is myotherapy and myofascial release?

"Myotherapy is a form of manual therapy which focuses on the assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal pain and associated pathologies."  

Myotherapy can also be called Bonnie Prudden myotherapy, as the term 'Myotherapy"  was originally coined by Prudden as she sought to describe a specific type of trigger point therapy. Nonetheless, over the last 40 years, the term, myotherapy, has become a commonly used term and practice used in all across the world. 

"Myofascial Release is an alternative medicine therapy that claims to treat skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles."
