Neuromuscular therapy is trigger point therapy. Trigger point therapy is muscles or connective tissue that hurts when pressure is applied. Once we work on the muscle, we try different techniques. We start off with superficial layers and then we go into the deeper layers. Once we feel that the muscle is released, then the pain tends to alleviate. People come for massage. It’s a part of the healing process to feel better, to walk better. It’s an overall health benefit.
Don’t Underestimate the Effects of Massage Therapy
If you have pains or restricted movement or have a lot of stress, it’s quite possible that massage therapy can compliment other treatments and therapies to help alleviate pain, improve motion, and reduce stress. A lot of people might think that massage therapy isn’t a healing therapy and that’s not necessarily the case. If your massage therapist is specifically trained in the right type of neuromuscular massage therapy, the treatment can actually have significant healing benefits. Of course, always talk to a medical professional about whether massage therapy is right for you.
