Musculoskeletal Therapy (MST)
Musculoskeletal Therapy (MST) is a style of manual therapy within the complementary and natural health industry. It requires 3 years of full time study.

A consultation will involve a brief assessment of the muscular and skeletal systems which will then form the basis of a specific treatment plan. This will help to restore normal movement and function, increase range of motion, speed up the recovery process from injuries as well as alleviating and preventing pain.

Treatment utilises various specialised soft tissue techniques. These include:

Muscle energy techniques

  • Deep tissue massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Stretching techniques and corrective exercise prescription
  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage
  • Cupping
  • Myofascial release
