Neuro-Muscular Technique (NMT)

The aim of NMT is to locate and remove soft tissue blockages that manifest as pain or dysfunction. The practitioner accomplishes this by locating the blockages through skilled palpation and then applies a focused pressure at different tissue depths. The blockages reflect a hyperactive, hypoactive, or aberrant neural state of activity.

Other modalities utilized are deep pressure to remove trigger points, rocking of the area to facilitate movement and relaxation, stretching, deep massage, and improving range of motion of the involved joints. Whole body vibration modalities are used to improve gait, strength, balance and fall prevention.

NMT supports the body's capacity for healing as it removes soft tissue blockages, helps the patient to achieve deep relaxation, facilitates improved respiratory and digestive functioning, and increases flexibility and balance.
