Dramatically reduces chronic pain
and irritation in the body

The most effective type of massage for chronic pain is Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT), sometimes referred to as Trigger Point Therapy. It consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas of muscle spasm. The pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles, or elbow. To be effective, it is critical that the therapist be familiar with pain patterns in the body, as well as how and where the muscles are attach to the bones.

Muscles that are in spasm will be painful to the touch. The pain is caused by ischemic muscle tissues. Ischemia means the muscle is lacking proper blood flow, usually due to the muscle spasm.

Because the muscle is not receiving enough blood, the muscle is also not receiving enough oxygen. The lack of oxygen causes the muscle to produce lactic acid. The lactic acid makes the muscle feel sore following physical activity. After the muscle is relaxed, the lactic acid will be released from the muscle, and the muscle should start receiving enough blood and oxygen.

NMT uses massage techniques that help balance the muscles, skeletal system and nervous system. Balance within the body is important for maintaining optimum health.
