Event Description

PNMT Form and Function is about clinical decision making, helping therapists increase effectiveness by treating the right muscle for the right reason. The wisdom (and the art) is in the choosing. Structural assessment is important, but must be done with speed and accuracy.  Moreover, how can you know that the structural asymmetry is related to the client’s presenting symptom? By integrating functional assessment as well, this seminar can help you design treatment protocols that create measurable and immediate improvements for the client. $350 early bird up to two weeks before class date. $380 normal rate within two weeks of class date.

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.
