What is Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)?
Neuromuscular Therapy (or NMT) uses superficial palpation before proceeding to deeper tissues to identify tender zones on the body that may be causing the discomfort you are experiencing. This modality includes trigger point techniques combined with other massage methods to release entrapped nerves from muscle impingement. Spastic muscles can affect underlying nerves which may trigger impulses to muscles thus causing undue pain. With properly applied techniques, the therapist can determine the appropriate treatment for each patient.
When muscles become compressed they cause the blood supply to be diminished bringing about an accumulation of toxic wastes which in turn irritate muscles. This results in the discomfort or pain one experiences. As muscles become fatigued their ability to maintain bone alignment is weakened. Neuro muscular therapy manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system.
In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and thought) to the body very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making he body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction. It is therefore necessary to stabilize low levels of neurological activity to maintain normal function and overall health.
Neuromuscular massage therapy
enhances the function of joints, muscles and biomechanics, and releases
endorphins, the body's own natural pain killers.
