TO RECOVER FROM INJURY & SURGERY
Neuromuscular Therapy Massage
Treatment ideal for accidents and those with chronic pain.
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is an intricate type of hands-on therapy used to analyze and treat pain and dysfunction of soft tissue. An assessment using your range of motion, cause of injury, and/or postural analysis can be used to help identify the source of dysfunction. NMT uses massage techniques and flexibility stretching to balance the musculoskeletal and nervous systems and eliminate the causes of neuromuscular pain. The therapy consists of using the fingers, knuckles, or elbow to apply alternating levels of pressure, which relax the affected muscles and increase circulation. This treatment enhances muscle and joint function and can be combined with other modalities as part of a comprehensive program.
Neuromuscular is a specialized therapy that enhances the function of joints and muscles. A special focus is given to the treatment of trigger points, local ischemia (lack-of-blood flow), neural interferences, postural and biomechanical dysfunctions.
Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat post-surgical or pain patients as part of the recovery process. If you are under the care of a physician ask about the benefits for you to incorporate massage therapy into the treatment of your medical condition.

Massage can be very helpful for those who work with their hands. Workers in a variety of industries, like construction, and people who perform physical labor often rely on massage relief. A massage can help reduce issues and improve their day-to-day performance. People who work in the labor trades can be more exposed to work-related aches and injuries and are often those who ignore their bodies due to their strenuous work schedules. Massage is a part of a beneficial routine to maintain longevity and a pain-free body.
Regular massage had the potential to help stave-off physical injuries from turning into surgeries down the road. It is an ideal therapy that can comfortably be administered to just about everyone.
