Achy Hips? Can't turn your head?
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a problem solving technique that uses advanced concepts in massage and pressure therapy to break the stress-tension-pain cycle. NMT aims to relax muscles so that circulation can increase, leading the body to return to normal balance and range of movement.
"Incorrect posture disrupts the design. Our thoughts become cloudy, the skeletal system becomes misaligned and does not adequately support our body weight, muscles are then recruited to help support our weight, and joints become misaligned and limit range of movement."
Rich Hornish, LMT
Neuromuscular Therapy has taken the massage world by storm, putting remedial massage on a more scientific footing with its precise and consistent maps of trigger points and referral zones. A great many clients have experienced the ability of these techniques to reliably diminish pain and improve function.
It's All About Muscle Balance
When your muscles are in the right place, the chances of you being in pain are extremely low. You can recognise out of balance muscles by your rounded shoulders, and turned out feet (like a ballet dancer). You'll also feel it with aches and pains scattered around your body.
So to help me plan which muscles are going to benefit the most during the massage, I'll be doing a Postural Analysis. It doesn't take long at all, and has a huge impact on the success of your treatment session.
It's difficult to correct posture on your own, when muscles are out of balance and pain is present.
Neuromuscular Therapy has been found to aid in the following:
- Athletic and sports injuries
- Lower Back Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Facial and Jaw Pain (TMJ)
- Hip Pain
- Neck Pain and Stiffness
- Shoulder Pain
- Tingling & Numbness of Arms, Hands, Legs & Feet
- Whiplash Injuries
- Upper Back Pain
If your doctor has confirmed that you have no heart problems, but the pain is still present, it could be pectoralis minor masquerading as heart pain via a trigger point.
Now that you know it is a muscle, posture and stress combination (get your doctor to confirm this), book a series of 6 appointments with Julianne to get rid of this pain. Together, we will design a plan to reduce your stress.
You're A Star
Just to let you know that yesterday's massage was fantastic.
I came to you tired and a bit wrecked and went away feeling great, nicely pampered, and then later even felt a bit energised. No headaches either which is nice. - Michelle
