Natural Health > Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy is a form of soft tissue massage that involves applying static pressure to specific myofascial points of muscle to relieve pain. The goal is to balance the central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system. Normally, nerves transmit impulses slowly to signal movements. When in distress, the transmission is sped up, creating pain and body dysfunction. The therapy aims to rebalance the neurological activity to return to normal function. The therapy is used to address five elements that cause pain: ischemia (lack of blood supply to soft tissue), trigger points (highly irritated points in muscles), nerve compression or entrapment, postural distortion, and biomechanical dysfunction.
