Neuromuscular Massage Therapy

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy in St. PetersburgNeuromuscular Therapy consists of several techniques including Myofascial Release.Fascia is the connective tissue surrounding muscle fibers. When the fascia becomes bound up , areas of hypertonicity occur causing reduced flexibility and diminished circulation. Myofacial release frees up the fascia thus improving muscle tissue function.

Cross fiber friction: this is a technique in which adhesions are broken down with the use of alternating pressure in a side to side motion running in the opposite direction of the muscle tissue fibers.

Trigger point myotherapy: consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on areas of muscle spasm. The therapist applies pressure with fingers, knuckles, or elbows, with pressure remaining constant for ten to thirty seconds. This form of massage therapy is generally the most effective type for low back pain, and is recognized by the American Academy of Pain Management as an effective treatment for back pain caused by soft tissue injury (such as muscle strain).

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy examines six physiological factors that may create or intensify pain patterns.

  • Ischemia
  • Trigger Points
  • Nerve Entrapment/Compression
  • Postural Distortions
  • Nutrition
  • Emotional Well-being

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy is used to address five pain causing elements:

  • Ischemia: Lack of blood supply to soft tissues which causes hypersensitivity to touch
  • Trigger Points: Highly irritated points in muscles which refer pain to other parts of the body
  • Nerve Compression or Entrapment: Pressure on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone
  • Postural Distortion: Imbalance of the muscular system resulting from the movement of the body off the longitudinal and horizontal planes
  • Biomechanical Dysfunction: Imbalance of the musculoskeletal system resulting in faulty movement patterns (i.e., poor lifting habits, bad mechanics in a golf swing, tennis stroke, or computer keyboarding)

What Are People Saying?

  • As a self employed advertising salesperson and marketing consultant, I decided over 20 years ago to assist my health by homeopathic solutions including weekly massage. Kim's skills as a therapist are as good as I've found. I've had no major health issues even though I'm approaching 60 years of age, and I believe massage therapy has allowed me to keep the edge for my personal life and my professional life.
