The Benefits of Neuromuscular Massage Therapy

Neuromuscular massage therapy (NMT) is a highly effective massage technique that focuses on releasing tension and pain in the muscles and soft tissues of the body. At Loosen Up Bodywork, a sports therapy and rehabilitative massage clinic in Walnut Creek and Danville, CA, our certified massage therapists are trained in NMT, and we are passionate about helping our clients feel their best. Here are four great benefits of neuromuscular therapy that you can expect:

Reduced Muscle Tension and Pain

NMT works by applying targeted pressure to the muscles and soft tissues along with specific muscle engagement, releasing tension and restoring the body to its natural balance. This can help reduce chronic muscle pain, soreness, and stiffness, allowing you to move more freely and comfortably.

Improved Posture

Many people suffer from poor posture due to chronic muscle tension, and NMT can help correct this. By targeting the muscles, NMT helps to restore the body’s natural alignment, which can lead to improved posture and fewer aches and pains.

Increased Range of Motion

NMT can help to improve flexibility and mobility by releasing tension in the muscles, allowing for a greater range of motion. This can be beneficial for athletes, as well as those suffering from age-related stiffness and loss of flexibility.

Improved Blood Circulation

NMT can also help to improve blood circulation. By targeting the muscles, NMT helps to release tension and restore the body to its natural balance, allowing for increased blood flow. This can help to reduce inflammation in the body and provide overall improved health and well-being. Improved blood circulation can also help to reduce fatigue and improve energy levels.

At Loosen Up Bodywork, we understand the importance of NMT and the many benefits it can offer. Our certified massage therapists are trained in this technique and are dedicated to helping our clients achieve their health and wellness goals. Contact us today to learn more about our services and how NMT can help you.

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.
