Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a highly effective treatment for the elimination of pain. It is specific targeted treatment based on a client’s history. The therapist looks at the body as a whole to find the underlying imbalances and then specifically works on the affected soft tissue areas to determine if the muscles are harbouring trigger points or have nerve impingement possibilities. When the affected muscles are located, cross fibre friction and acupressure techniques are used to release trigger points and break up adhesions, which in-turn decreases pain.
Utilising specific massage therapy, flexibility stretching, and at home care can eliminate the causes of most neuromuscular pain patterns. This specific and scientific approach to muscular pain relief will help to bring about balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. NMT also enhances the function of joints, muscles and your biomechanics (movement). It can be part of a comprehensive program, complementing all other health care modalities.
This type of massage goes deep into the muscles to work out tension at a core level and to treat postural imbalances, sporting injuries and general muscle tension.
Neuromuscular Therapy – Prices
30 minutes = $55
This is a good amount of time for specific areas of tension like neck and shoulders or lower back aches. Maybe you need your calves worked on after exercise or you have problems with your feet. This can be good for regular maintenance of existing or past injuries as well.
60 minutes = $90
The most popular time slot and good for larger areas like the upper half of the body or lower half of the body. Neck and Shoulder pain often involve the lower back as well and so it is recommended to have an hour to thoroughly address the whole back. It is possible to have a full body massage if you are happy with less time spent in each area, although we do recommend an hour and a half for full body deep tissue massages.
90 minutes = $125
This allows enough time to address the whole body or thoroughly address larger areas of the body and get relaxation as well. This can be important in the body’s process to integrate new muscle memory. Yes muscles have memory and can hold the memory of tension for as long as that tension has been going on. So it can be very helpful for the body to have the deep tissue therapy to work out the tension and then some relaxation to integrate this new memory by relaxing longer before going “back to work.”
