Myofascial Mapping is an assessment tool that is unique to
the Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) approach. This hands
on assessment provides the therapist with an overview of the
restriction patterns currently present in your body. These
patterns may be at a muscular , vascular, organ or bone level.
Your body provides physical clues about these patterns that
is picked up with the mapping technique.
The therapist using this assessment tool is trained to feel
the different movement patterns that each body system projects
when dysfunction is present. From here, a ‘body story’
is revealed giving the therapist a guide or roadmap to develop
a treatment plan.
What can you expect as a client?
You will be lying on the therapy table clothed and the therapist
will lightly touch you as they key into the various movement
patterns. The therapist will then record their findings and
discuss with you the treatment plan that is best suited to
meet your treatment goals.
