Welcome to
Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy®

“Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy is a method of relaxing muscle spasm, improving circulation and alleviating pain. To defuse ‘trigger points,’ pressure is applied to the muscle for several seconds by means of fingers, knuckles and elbows. The success of this method depends on the use of specific corrective exercise for the freed muscles. The method was developed by Bonnie Prudden in 1976.”
Taber’s Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, 17th Edition

Bonnie Prudden Myotherapy® is a hands-on, drugless, non-invasive method of relieving muscle related pain which emphasizes speedy, cost effective recovery and active patient participation for long-term relief. Myotherapy relaxes muscles, improves circulation and alleviates pain in all parts of the body. It increases strength, flexibility, coordination, stamina and energy. Work and play performance, posture, gait,and sleep patterns are all improved quickly, effectively and long lastingly. During a Myotherapy session, the patient, shoeless and wearing loose clothing, lies relaxed on a table as the body is checked for areas of potentially active trigger points, highly irritable spots that remain in the muscle after it has been damaged.

What an incredible workshop!

What an incredible workshop! Helpful to me personally and professionally. The information presented was made easy to digest and apply immediately. I really enjoyed practicing the corrective movements/stretches and seeing how much more effective myotherapy is when these exercises are applied. And how easy to integrate into a massage therapy session…I love it, and my clients love it too! Thank you!!!
