MYYO Technique

Living Life Painlessly



The MYYO Technique

The MYYO Technique is a holistic, natural way of relieving discomfort and stress in a person so that they can “Live Life Painlessly”.

MYYO is a combination of 2 words – ‘MYO’ (Greek for muscles) and ‘YOga’ - thus it is a manual process of working on and stretching of muscles, and connective tissue with yogic breathing.It also includes magnetotherapy, energy balancing via the meridians and chakras, emotional releasing to bring balance to the emotional and mental levels of being; and has nutritional and spiritual components to bring complete healing to the client. The client is given simple practices to carry out at home to continue the healing process.


The MYYO Consultation

At the initial consultation, a detailed case history is obtained, assessments of physical condition and postural alignment, range of movement and biomechanical structure are carried out - the MYYO Practitioner will then do a full body re-alignment to relieve the symptoms. The Client and Practitioner work harmoniously together during the appointment.

During a MYYO Consultation, the client, shoeless and wearing loose clothing, lies relaxed as the body is checked for stored tension in the muscles. After these are released by the Certified MYYO Practitioner, each muscle group is then stretched in order to return the muscle to a relaxed state and keep it that way. Additional corrective exercises are taught as homework to ensure and sustain recovery and freedom from pain.

In the follow-up consultation imbalances that have arisen from the body’s over-correction are worked on and any other ailments addressed. A third consultation is advisable to bring about complete physical re-alignment, but further treatments are not often required. However, many clients return for maintenance MYYO alignments every 4 to 6 weeks, unless another problem appears or an injury occurs. Book a Consultation.

Note: MYYO Technique is not a diagnosis or treatment of any condition or disease. It is concerned only with locating and releasing stored tension and aided with simple movement, it helps the body in its innate ability to maintain and heal itself.
