Neuromuscular massage therapy uses static pressure on specific points in the body to relieve pain.
Pain has a few possible causes. Neuromuscular therapy is designed to address five of them:
- Ischemia, or a lack of blood flow
- Trigger points or irritated muscle tissue that refers pain to other parts of the body
- Nerve pressure or compression
- Poor posture
- Pain caused by exertion
“As a surgeon, I am constantly demanding my back and neck to be in positions that aren’t always comfortable for lengthy periods of time. In the past, I suffered from tension headaches and generalized soreness because of this. Since I started seeing Diane for Neuromuscular Massage, I have not had a headache and feel more relaxed, loose, and pain free, even after a long surgery.
Diane is a power house and her therapy has in turn helped me to take better care of my patients and enjoy the other activities in my life more!”
– Dr. B.
Neuromuscular therapy can also relieve chronic headache pain. By applying pressure to the cervical lamina, as demonstrated in the photo below, we can relieve the muscle tension that cancause headaches.
