Therapeutic massage therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation that aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically-oriented form of massage addresses trigger points (tender muscles points), circulation, nerve compression, postural issues, and biomechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries.
NEUROMUSCULAR MASSAGE THERAPY
Neuromuscular massage therapy centers around a series of techniques that involve the release of deep muscle tissue. It is used to help locate and release spasms and contractions in the tissues, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, restore flexibility to the tissues, and rebuild strength of injured tissues.
NMT works within the unique pain tolerance level of each client. Education is provided with each treatment, informing clients of what may be experienced directly after treatment and the days to follow.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that deep-tissue massage is more effective and affordable for relieving chronic pain than conventional medical remedies. This is due to the techniques used during a deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through the body. It can also helps reduce any inflammation that causes pain or discomfort. Deep-tissue massage can help alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters.
