What is Neuromuscular Therapy?

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) uses massage therapy techniques on trigger points or pressure points in order to relieve tension in the body. This deep tissue massage helps to reduce pain and dysfunction, as well as help with specific traumas inflicted upon the muscles, tissues, and fascia.

Benefits of Neuromuscular Therapy

The benefits of neuromuscular therapy are many. Pain can be reduced and/or eliminated. This type of massage therapy can promote better healing of injuries and help improve posture. In addition, it can increase your mobility and help with increased blood circulation.

The “Why” Behind Neuromuscular Massage Therapy

One of the main reasons that neuromuscular therapy is so effective is that the pressure on the trigger points helps to get to the root of the injury or the angry muscle and tissues. This helps relieve tension and restore proper blood flow to the area, which then allows your muscles to heal and function properly.
