Neuromuscular trigger point therapy (NMT)

Allow your muscles to release tension without overworking them.

Neuromuscular therapy is a comprehensive and advanced system of soft tissue manipulation that specializes in working with chronic myofascial pain and pain syndromes. On the basis of neurological laws, this therapy works toward bringing the body’s central nervous system into homeostatic balance with the musculoskeletal system using various Swedish massage strokes along with trigger point release. 

Neuromuscular therapy is used to deactivate trigger points in muscle, tendon, and ligaments. It is also used to lengthen chronically shorten muscles and balance muscle groups, especially when working with people suffering from postural dysfunction or distortion, such as internal rotation of a shoulder girdle or scoliosis. If we can balance each area of the body, we can help people change their posture and gait. This work may also be used to enhance the function of joints, muscles, and general biomechanics of the body while speeding up healing by the facilitation and release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.
