TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger Point Therapy is a method of searching for and treating ischemic locations and the trigger points that are often the key factors in chronic and severe pain. This type of therapy is widely acclaimed and extremely successful in pain relief.
DEEP TISSUE AND NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY (NMT)
It’s important to distinguish between deep tissue work and NMT. Deep tissue massage releases chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia. It’s also called “deep tissue” because it focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
NMT is a series of treatment applied to specific muscles. NMT differs from Swedish massage because it deals with the muscles, ligaments, and soft tissues of the body, while addressing the Central Nervous System at the same time to help correct the body’s learned patterns of tension.
NMT also incorporates techniques such as Post-Isometric Muscle Release (active) and Positional Release (passive).
