What is neuromuscular therapy?
Neuromuscular therapy is a specialized form of massage that focuses on identifying and treating trigger points, adhesions, and fascial restrictions. These dysfunctions show up for many reasons including over-use and injury. A trained therapist uses multiple techniques to address these issues, restoring healthy range of motion, reducing pain, and increasing function.

Benefits of neuromuscular therapy
Neuromuscular therapy offers a range of benefits for individuals dealing with chronic and acute pain, skeletal imbalances, and reduced range of motion. Some key advantages include:
1. Pain Relief: By restoring function to an area through increasing blood flow, elasticity, suppleness, etc; neuromuscular therapy works to reduce restrictive/protective patterns and the pain naturally decreases or goes away. Whether you're experiencing back pain, headaches, or other chronic pain conditions, this modality can help alleviate discomfort and improve your quality of life.
2. Improved Range of Motion: Muscular imbalances and adhesions restrict the range of motion in our joints and hinder our daily activities. Neuromuscular therapy helps release tension and restore proper muscle function, allowing for improved flexibility and movement.
3. Corrected Postural Issues: Work habits and poor posture can lead to imbalances and chronic pain. Neuromuscular therapy can address postural issues by releasing tight tissues and retraining the body to achieve better alignment, reducing pain, and promoting better posture.
4. Injury Rehabilitation: If you've experienced an injury, neuromuscular therapy can aid in the rehabilitation process. By targeting specific tissues and addressing imbalances, this modality can help speed up recovery, reduce scar tissue formation, and restore optimal function.
