This massage targets specific problem areas. When affected areas are located, the therapist performs a series of static pressure manipulations and techniques. Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) techniques include trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and soft tissue manipulations. By using variable pressure on underlying muscle, the therapist stimulates and repairs soft tissue. In addition, NMT stimulates endorphin production, improving immune function, and restoring a healthy balance between the body's major systems. During the therapy session, communication between you and your Neuromuscular Massage Therapist will assist in following the neurological pathway... and in treating you and your tissues appropriately. YOU are an important part of the processes.
