Neuro-Muscular Therapy (NMT) - This modality is applied when there is chronic (long term) or acute (sudden on-set) soft tissue irritability. This is NOT a full-body treatment. It is a muscle specific treatment to address trigger point concerns. Trigger points are sources of hyper-irritability that can cause shooting pain and/or burning sensations within the soft tissue and can occur for any number of reasons. This discomfort can limit range of motion, cause headaches, severe anxiety and mimic other more serious conditions, such as appendicitis and heart attack. It is very common to feel sore after a treatment. Your therapist can better determine if you are a candidate for this treatment.
