Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy

NMT’s primary focus is to eliminate pain as well as educate you on ways to prevent recurrence of the injury. This massage modality uses postural analysis, anatomy, physiology and intuition to find the mechanisms behind why your body is in pain. Neuromuscular therapy is based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system maintains balance. These same laws dictate how the central nervous system initiates pain response.

Neuromuscular sessions are focused on specific areas of the body – unlike Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage.

Research has show that Neuromuscular Therapy can help with the following issues:

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Neck Pain
  • Whiplash
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Hip Pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Frozen Shoulder Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Scapular Winging
  • TMJ dysfunction

Bottom-line:

Neuromuscular therapy releases the body’s soft tissue constrictions that cause pain.  For example, if your shoulders and chest are hunched forward, you will feel pain in your back; however, it’s your chest muscles that are causing your back pain.  Releasing your chest’s constricted muscles will decrease the strain in your back.
