Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) focuses on the treatment of trigger points. Trigger points refer pain to in other areas of the body. Trigger points are usually painful points located in tight bands of muscle. They are areas of increased tension that are abnormally rigid and can result in a limited range of motion and entrapped nerves. This massage style uses the application of sustained, usually static, pressure. The pressure can vary from medium to heavy, depending on how bad the trigger point is and how long it has been there.

How Does NMT Differ from Swedish Massage

NMT differs from Swedish massage in numerous ways. There are no long flowing strokes, no kneading the muscles, nor other techniques associated with Swedish massage. NMT accesses the muscle fibers perpendicular to their direction with slow static pressure held in place for 10 seconds to up to a few minutes.

There is normally no need for using lotion or oil, so there is no need to disrobe. With Neuromuscular Massage Therapy, the client stays dressed in gym clothes. Also, we find it extremely effective to integrate NeuroKinetic Therapy with NMT. This is because in using NMT, we can hone in on the facilitated element within your body and give greater relief. By understanding the inhibited element and addressing it, one will be less likely to go through the recurring cycle of pain, unresolved injuries, and decreased sports performance. By adding this and a tiny bit of homework, the client can reduce the sessions’ frequency down and go into maintenance.
