Neuromuscular therapy provides alignment based massage thearpy and bodywork techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, compression, traction, and streching to release chronic contracted muscles, bringing the body and posture back into alignment, enhancing the overall health and wellness of the client. Reasons why people suffer from pain: lack of blood supply to the area, trigger points which are sensitive areas within very tight muscles, which can refer pain to another location, nerve compression, excessive pressure on a nerve, poor posture due to working, sleeping or sporting conditions, biomechanical dysfunction. The body sometimes uses muscle in the incorrect sequence. Often when an injury occurs the individual begins to hold their body in a particular way, perhaps to ease their pain or to protect themselves from further injury. However this can lead to more problems at a later stage. This is called compensations, if left untreated, severe postural distortions will occur.

There's no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relieve, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen. Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can without a doubt, help manage stress.
