Myofascial Release 

Fascia surrounds and envelopes all of the body’s structures. It is the connective tissue that is continuous throughout the body, never-ending. Trauma, repetitive movement patterns and metabolic dysfunction can influence the fascia to create holding patterns in the body’s tissue. Releasing these patterns will increase the available range and quality of motion, as well as decrease symptoms ranging from pain to immobility. Without using oils, the therapist will engage the tissue, mobilize it, and will often utilize active or passive movement from the client to aid in this process.

Neuromuscular Therapy Neuromuscular Therapy

or NMT is highly effective in people with chronic pain and stress, as well as those struggling with poor posture, tight muscles, and nerve entrapment.

All muscular activity depends on the nervous system and the signals it sends.

Neuromuscular therapy engages the relationship between the nervous and muscular systems to create change.

It is a fast, vigorous, deep technique that also enhances circulation and lymphatic drainage.

NMT helps restore tight muscles to a healthy, normal resting muscle length, it improves how well muscles function, it deactivates trigger points and helps break up adhesions in muscle tissue.

NMT focuses on releasing the whole belly of a muscle which contains muscle spindles. Muscle Spindles are responsible for the length and stretch in a muscle. NMT also focuses on muscle tendons which contain Golgi tendon organs. Golgi tendon organs are responsible for muscle tension.

After successful treatment with NMT, patients report less pain, less muscle tension, and more movement.
