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.
