NIR light therapy is used to help a wide range of issues including reduced blood circulation, muscle and joint stiffness and tension, pain, muscular spasms and Arthritis.

Photoreceptors, found in our cell mitochondria, absorb the light and create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP then stimulates different metabolic processes that can result in the repair and regeneration of cells and tissue components.

NIR is an add on component to your myotherapy consultation.

Exercise prescription/Coaching

Exercise prescription is the use of exercise to help prevent chronic health issues that impact on your quality of life. The aim of prescriptive exercise is to improve your baseline health and physical abilities to achieve optimal mobility and longevity doing the activities you love.  Sometimes we need an objective professional to steer us in the right way to get these results.

An exercise prescription/coaching session starts with a detailed health history and some range of motion movements to see where your abilities lie. It will then progress to specific exercises designed to build your strength and mobility where you need it and a plan for how you will go forward at home.
