Neuromuscular Therapy is distinguished from other types of bodywork in that it addresses trigger points. Trigger points are areas of hyper-irritable tissues that send so many signals to the spinal cord that it becomes overwhelmed. These irritated tissues cause the person to feel that their pain is coming from somewhere else. Trigger points can cause sensations of burning, cold or grabbing. Neuromuscular Therapy focuses on relieving trigger points by applying appropriate, static pressure. By using very slow strokes performed at moderate depth, the muscles and facia are loosened easily and quickly.
Targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscles and is used for chronically tight or painful muscles. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins.
During a reflexology massage acupressure and various massage techniques are applied to certain zones of the hands and feet to naturally heal the body. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body. These meridians are pathways through which the energy circulates throughout the body organs and keeps the body in harmony.
A chair massage focuses on the areas of you back, shoulders, neck, arms, and hands with the most tension. You are massaged over your clothes without any use of massage oil. The massage therapist relieves the tension in the muscles with kneading and acupressure.
