Matthew Grosser is a qualified Myotherapist, his keen interest in anatomy and sport has led to his passion for helping others perform at their peak, recover from injuries and avoid chronic pain.
What to expect during and after treatment? During the treatment there may be certain techniques that feel unpleasant or uncomfortable but the therapist will endeavour to make the session as pain free but as effective as possible. At all times open dialogue is available and encouraged between the therapist and the client to make sure necessary pressure is being applied and that things aren’t getting too uncomfortable. Although treatment doesn’t have to hurt to be effective (this is a total myth) often the tissue the therapist will choose to work on may be hypersensitive (excessively sensitive) to pain or pressure so some unpleasantness at times is to be expected.
Some of the techniques used and what to expect...
Myofascial Dry Needling (MDN) – This is probably the one that I get asked the most about as a therapist. Myofascial Dry Needles (MDN) are a different length and diameter to most acupuncture needles due to the differences in the way they work. The needle we typically use is 0.3mm in diameter, this is many, many times smaller than an injection or blood drawing needle and subsequently the pain associated with using it is significantly less almost to the point where most clients don’t actually realise when the needle is put in or taken back out.
Transverse Frictioning – As the name suggests transverse frictioning (TF) requires pressure to be applied repeatedly across (transversely) the direction of the muscle fibres.
Deep Tissue Massage – Deep Tissue Massage is a tried and true technique heavily studied in regards to tissue healing, sports performance and its positive psychological effects.
Dynamic Cupping – Dynamic cupping uses plastic cups and the use of a suction gun to apply the vacuum instead of the TCM way which typically uses glass cups coated with alcohol on the inside before a flame is applied to create the vacuum. Dynamic cupping is exactly what it sounds like, the cup is continually moved around the body to avoid bruising the skin. The mechanisms it works by are completely different to TCM.
