|What is Neuromuscular Therapy? |
Neuromuscular Therapy is a deep tissue muscular therapy
designed to offer very effective relief for muscular /
skeletal pain symptoms due to chronic pain, injury, postural
dysfunction, stress, stiffness, aging and fatigue. Our therapy is performed thru your clothing;
no oil or lotion is required.
The technique of our
neuromuscular therapy involves a precise micro stretching of
each muscle involved in the condition you are suffering from.
Our therapists perform this technique with their thumbs,
fingers and elbows. No machines of any type are used.
Only the human touch is used in this technique. You
wear your clothing. Suffering from pain more times than not
involves the “deeper muscles” as the cause of the problem.
Throughout your body, there are areas where muscles lay on top
of each other, sometimes 3 or 4 deep in layer. The 3rd or 4th
layer many times is the culprit. It may possess trigger point
activity, hyper contraction (extreme tightness), and
inflammation. When this muscle becomes tight due to injury,
stress, etc., it is now programmed to stay tight to protect
the bones from further injury or the muscle itself from
tearing. The tendency will be to become tighter as time goes
on simply because it doesn’t know to stop tightening. The
muscles are attached to bones by their tendons. Many muscles
overlap a joint (two bones attached) and as a injured /
stressed muscle tightens, it begins to tug on the two bones
(the joint), which leads to pain in the joint (a symptom of
arthritis), limited range of motion of the joint, muscular
pain, trigger point pain in the muscle, tendon inflammation
(tendonitis), swelling. This scenario can occur anywhere in
the body where two bones articulate ( joint).
Neuromuscular Therapy technique is applied to these “deeper
muscles” the micro stretching which is very thorough begins to
re-elongate these muscles and returns them to their full
length, thus, removing the tug on the bones/joints and many
times eliminating the inflammation and discomfort you were
having. Range of joint motion always improves also.
When the human muscle/skeletal system is given the
chance to unravel itself from a hyper contractive state, self
healing is than given the opportunity to flush out the
inflammatory toxicity. With this, wellness may be at hand.
