In Canada, All of our Myodetox Therapists come from one of three licensed professional backgrounds: either physiotherapy, chiropractic, or massage therapy. In the United States, all therapists are either licensed Physical Therapists or Chiropractors. In addition to their professional training, they are required to go through a rigorous internal training on the Myodetox techniques and system when they join our team of therapists. They’re also encouraged to attend monthly technical trainings where we bring in some of the top therapists in the world to teach on various subjects to our staff.

The uniqueness of Myodetox starts with the belief that in some way, everything is connected to everything else. Many therapies don’t have a goal outside of working on what hurts and that specific area only. With Myodetox, we start by looking at the global picture of how your body is ordered and balanced, how your body moves, and how one issue can lead to problems elsewhere. This helps us look strategically and systematically at identifying the root cause of any pain, dysfunction, or areas holding you back from performance improvements. From this point, we work with only manual therapy (read: hands-on) and movement to create lasting change. Other clinics use machines to get the job done, we don’t

It depends a lot on your individual pain tolerance and experience with being treated. Most clients can feel some discomfort here and there but call it, “the best pain of my life”, because we work at a deep level releasing long-held tension and you’ll feel instantly better after your session. Based on thousands of hours of refining the Myodetox framework, we’ve learned that to create a permanent change in a tissue quickly, at times techniques are required that can be painful. If at any point in time you’re feeling uncomfortable, just let your Myodetox Therapist know and they can adjust the pressure.

The answer is yes, we have collectively seen thousands of patients and have experience with many variations of dysfunctional muscular patterns and injuries. If you have anything extremely exotic or have any questions you want answered about a specific condition or injury before coming to your first Myodetox session, feel free to contact us and we’ll connect you with the appropriate Myodetox Therapist who can answer your questions for you.

Your initial assessment and treatment takes approximately one hour, and follow up visits are either 30 or 60 minutes in length depending on a variety of factors.

Definitely. While we start your initial assessment with a thorough Body Scan and muscle testing, we also find a lot of value in continually re-assessing throughout your treatment, getting you off the table to walk around, assessing postural changes, and ultimately seeking out the root cause of your dysfunction through constant testing and re-testing through your entire Myodetox program.

All of our Myodetox Therapists working within our clinics have gone through extensive training beyond their professional schooling in order to successfully solve and improve a wide variety of real-world challenges that our clients bring to us every single day. There’s strength in numbers, and the strength of the Myodetox team comes from the learning and talent development of our therapy team working together. In short, you can’t go wrong with anyone on our team – choose a therapist based on the location and time that’s convenient for you.

Although your Myodetox Therapist will be able to provide you with a much more accurate timeline following your initial assessment, as a general rule of thumb the following holds true: For more minor, non-chronic injuries or movement challenges we can see dramatic improvement within 4-6 sessions. For more major or chronic injuries or movement issues we ballpark around 10-12 sessions. Finally, for severe or long-term chronic issues, it may take up to 20 sessions to see a significant resolution of your symptoms. These are very general estimates and every patient case varies, and often you’ll feel improvement from the very first session. Your therapist will work with you to create a program that will be tailored to your needs during your initial session, so you’ll have an idea of your roadmap once you come in.

When we talk about future-proofing your body, we mean it. Don’t wait for an injury to build up. Our modern lifestyle habits of being glued to a chair or couch for many hours a day or in front of a computer screen does not allow our body to work or maintain itself the way it’s supposed to. Add in some weekend warrior activity after a stressful week with very little movement, and you’ve got a recipe for potential future injury and pain. On the other hand, if we take the time on a monthly basis to address your muscular tension, improve your movement patterns, address lifestyle factors, and ensure that we’re dealing intelligently with tweaks and aches before they become a major problem, you’re going to feel better, move faster, and live a longer, pain-free life.

Patients do not need a referral to be treated by any of our Myodetox therapists. In Canada, some private insurance companies do require a doctor’s referral for either physiotherapy, chiropractic and massage therapy. Please check with your private insurance company before making an appointment.
