Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT)
Neuromuscular Massage Therapy is the most effective massage modality for trigger point pain relief.
Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) is a scientific therapy based on laws and principles that uses soft tissue muscle manipulation and gentle ranges of motion to achieve balance in the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Effective neuromuscular massage relies on specificity of technique, extensive study of trigger point pain referral patterns, as well as in depth analysis of postural dysfunctions that cause discomfort and pain.
Neuromuscular Massage Therapy can treat and aid in the healing of many conditions including and not limited to:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
- Edema or Dysasthesia in the Hands
- Frozen Shoulder and Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Any Musculoskeletal Pain
- TMJ Dysfunction
- Reverse Cervical Curve
- Nerve Entrapment and Compression
Sports Massage Therapy
Sports Massage Therapy uses joint ranges of motion, specific massage applications, and Muscle Energy Techniques (METs) to improve the functional movement and sports performance potential of any level of athlete.
The applications of sports massage are used to achieve different goals in the process of an athletes performance. Many athletes appreciate the restorative effects of certain applications, and in turn can use it as an asset in their regular training process. Goals of sports massage include:
- Recovery from strenuous or vigorous activity
- Improvement of conditions that limit performance
- Injury rehabilitation and accelerated healing
- Maintenance to consistently stay in peak training condition
A Muscle Energy Technique (MET) involves lightly contracting and relaxing muscles, to safely ease them into a stretch. METs applied properly can achieve a vast range of positive effects. METs can normalize muscle tone, help traumatized tissue heal properly, and promote flexibility to aid in sports performance.
