Neuromuscular

Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy also known as Trigger Point Therapy, is a very specialized form of manual therapy that utilizes static pressure on specific trigger points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system. In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and thought) to the body very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction. It is therefore necessary to stabilize low levels of neurological activity to maintain normal function and overall health.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a style of bodywork that addresses the particular needs of athletes. Sports Massage is a special form of massage and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events, as well as off-season, pre-season and post-season massage. The purpose of the sports massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. No Oils or lotions are applied during this massage

Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is focused work and uses slow, deep and intense strokes across the grain of specific muscles to heal physical injuries, chronic tension and emotional stresses within the body. This massage can be used to release trapped nerves and correct damaged muscle tissue, as well as to soften hard muscles which have caused joint restriction and structural misalignment. A small amount of lotion or oil is used during this massage.

Myofascial Release

Therapy

Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, including muscle, and it supports these structures. Fascia can become restricted due to overuse, trauma, or inactivity, often resulting in pain, muscle tension, and diminished blood flow. Myofascial release method engages the myofascial tissue restriction or tension, which can be detected by the physician. The tissue can be loaded with a constant force until a release of the tension occurs. By slowly stretching the muscles within the fascia, the fascia will also be stretched, which can also help to release these fascial adhesions or restrictions.
