What is Muscular Therapy?
Treatments are individualized, intensive and extensive, sometimes
focusing 90 minutes, if necessary, on area of chronic pain. Using a combination of modalities listed below, clients experience a complete array of treatments facilitating healing. With these deep-tissue techniques, most clients experience little or no pain the following day.
With slow deep strokes the connective tissue fabric known as fascia begins to melt and enable deeper work into the muscular layer of the body. Myofascial work
restores movement and flexibility of the body. This technique loosens areas of the muscle that feel "stuck."
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)
NMT breaks the cycle of pain that may begin with
injury, illness, stress or other factors. Muscles and connective tissues with poor blood
circulation can house 'trigger points' that
pass pain onto other areas of the body. NMT focuses on increasing blood flow to flush waste from muscular
tissue. The ultimate goal of NMT is to rid the muscle of trigger
points and adhesions gluing other muscle/connective tissue. This allows
the muscle to return to its intended length, and this, in turn, takes
stress off of the nervous system and other areas of the body.
Lengthening, stretching, and pressure techniques to muscles &
trigger points eliminate waste and release pain that is stored within
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS)
Active Isolated Stretching is one of the methods
of stretching most used by today's athletes, massage therapists,
personal/athletic trainers, and professionals. AIS allows the body to repair itself and to strengthen weak muscles which allows you to regain your normal activity and hobbies. AIS
involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds. This
method of stretching is also known to work with the body's natural
physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity
of muscle joints and fascia.
