Advanced Neuromuscular Massage
Neuromuscular massage, also known as trigger point therapy or myofascial trigger point therapy, focuses on the treatment of specific areas of muscle tension, also known as "trigger points." These trigger points are usually located in the muscle tissue and are characterized by tight bands of muscle fibers that can cause pain, stiffness, and restricted range of motion.
During a neuromuscular massage session, the therapist will use various techniques such as deep tissue massage, compression, and stretching to apply pressure to the trigger points. The goal of this treatment is to reduce muscle tension, improve range of motion, and alleviate pain.
Neuromuscular massage is often used to treat muscle-related conditions such as muscle spasms, strains, and sprains, as well as conditions such as fibromyalgia, headaches, and carpal tunnel syndrome. It may also be used as a preventative measure to help maintain muscle health and flexibility.
It is important to note that neuromuscular massage should only be performed by a trained and licensed therapist. It is not recommended for individuals with certain medical conditions such as bleeding disorders, acute inflammation, or certain skin conditions. It is also not recommended for pregnant women or individuals who have recently had surgery. It is always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before receiving any type of massage therapy.
