Types of Massage Therapy
Neuromuscular Massage is a specific massage technique where trigger point pressure is applied to manipulate soft tissue to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving both the muscular and nervous system. NMT is highly effective for clients who present with chronic pain and is often successful in reducing or eliminating even longstanding painful conditions. Some of the techniques can also be applied to acute injuries and for post-surgical care; many help to improve performance in sport or dance and to prevent injuries due to these activities.
