Neuromuscular massage

Neuromuscular massage is an intense form of bodywork that consists of focused, concentrated massage on one specific are of the body. The pressure applied during the treatment may continue for a period of up to 30 seconds at a time and it is designed to alleviate tension that extends from a “trigger point” into an entire muscle. When a muscle spasms in the body, blood flow to that area is severely decreased. When the blood flow is diminished, oxygen necessary for the muscle to work properly is also decreased causing a build-up of lactic acid. This causes a sensation similar to the one felt after a long workout, a muscle soreness. It follows the holistic approach of healing pain and disorders whereby the affected body tissues are stimulated to heal on their own. Although some clients achieve pain relief after a single neuromuscular massage others may need to attend for repeated treatments to observe the benefits of this type of therapy.
