Event Description

Neck pain accounts for a large percentage of visits to massage therapy offices. While more general massage approaches to the neck can be very relaxing, PNMT focuses on more specific problem-solving. When a client comes to your office with specific complaints, PNMT will help you consider all the possible musculoskeletal explanations that would explain his/her discomfort. Great problem-solving skills and a deep knowledge of functional anatomy are the keys to success. Additionally, PNMT for the Cervical Spine places an emphasis on the relationship of the cervical spine and neural excitability. We think you will. During the PNMT for the Cervical Spine seminar, you will begin with a review of very quick but highly accurate assessment approaches to help you direct treatment. Included in that assessment are Range of Motion and exclusionary muscle testing. You will then learn which muscles to address for each range of motion limitation and spend ample time treating them on multiple people. The focus is on real-world applications- increasing functional capacity as well as lessening discomfort. $350 early bird up to two weeks before class date. $380 normal rate within two weeks of class date.

About the Instructor

A native of Cincinnati, Julie received a B.A. in Anthropology from U.C., where her senior research was a cross-cultural comparison of how women view and manage pain during pregnancy and childbirth. While attending U.C., Julie received massage therapy for injuries sustained in a car accident, and was amazed at the results. This experience led her to attend the Ohio College of Massotherapy, where she was first introduced to Douglas Nelson and PNMT seminars. Licensed by the State Medical Board since 2002, Julie enjoys private practice in Cincinnati, OH

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy (NMT), sometimes called trigger point therapy, is a targeted, deep tissue massage technique. Concentrated pressure is applied to key points in order to relieve muscle spasms. It is often combined with other techniques as part of a deep tissue session.

While regular deep tissue massage is meant to alleviate general, chronic muscle tension, neuromuscular therapy is mean to address postural problems, nerve compression, ischemia and improper biomechanics. Referred pain, or dysfunction in one area causing issues in others, is often addressed with NMT. Neuromuscular therapy trainings will teach you how to identify common trigger points and referred pain as well as how to approach them without pain or bruising.
