Pain Management

The clinical use of soft tissue manipulation through NMT, trigger point work, and myofascial release to reduce pain and stress during healing process and in some cases help the process to be more expedient. When a painful injury or pathology is resistant to treatment and persists, when pain persists after the injury or pathology has healed, and when medical science cannot identify the cause of pain, regular sessions of NMT can sometimes reduce the need for drugs and improve quality of life.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) is a form of soft tissue manual therapy. It is distinguished from other types of massage in that a quasi-static pressure is applied to the skin with the aim of stimulating specific areas of skeletal muscle. Often these areas of muscle are myofascial trigger points. NMT is a comprehensive program of soft tissue manipulation techniques that balance the central nervous system (brain, spinal column and nerves) with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system. NMT is based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system maintains homeostatic balance.
