Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) is a comprehensive program of soft tissue manipulation techniques that balance the central nervous system (brain, spinal column and nerves) with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system. NMT is based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system maintains homeostatic balance. These same laws dictate how the central nervous system initiates pain response.

The Five Principles Of Neuromuscular Therapy:

#1. Ischemia – lack of blood flow to soft tissues, causing hypersensitivity to touch

#2. Trigger Points – highly irritated points in muscles that refer pain to other parts of the body and often lead to more pain and discomfort

#3. Postural Distortion – imbalance of muscular system due to longtime poor postural habits; body tries to compensate to maintain structural balance thus causing muscle contraction, body distortion and pain. Most common cause of pain.

#4. Biomechanical Dysfunctions – imbalance of musculoskeletal system caused by poor lifting habits, computer keyboarding, etc.

#5. Nerve Compression/Entrapment – pressure on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone. Failure to treat associated soft tissue by only treating the symptom will not eliminate the cause of the pain.

NMT can improve
many conditions among which are:

Muscular Pain (neck, shoulders, upper; lower extremities, back and hips); Sciatic Pain, Temporomandibular Joint Pain, Muscular Soreness, Muscular tightness and spasm, Joint Dysfunctions, Muscular Imbalances, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Joint Mobility and Stability, Range of Motion, Posture
