Neuromuscular Release Therapy

Neuromuscular Release Therapy is an art form based upon touch and observation: creating a virtual map of your body in order to get a full picture of how certain muscle stimulation triggers certain response mechanisms in your brain. With NRT we’ve been 95% effective at treating most conditions that cause chronic pain.

NMT assessments and examinations primarily address

ischemia (tight tissue with reduced blood flow)
myofascial trigger points (hypersensitive points within muscles that give rise to referred phenomena, including pain)
neural entrapment (pressure on nerves by muscles and other soft tissues), and nerve compression (pressure on nerves by osseous and other bone-like tissues, such as cartilage or  discs).
postural assessment (assessment of the position of the body as a whole)
and dysfunctional gait patterns (manner of movement when walking)
with constant consideration for many other perpetuating factors, such as hydration, nutrition, breathing patterns, and psycho-logic stress.

NMT is highly effective for clients who present with chronic pain and is often successful in reducing or eliminating even longstanding painful conditions. Some of the techniques can also be applied to acute injuries and for post-surgical care; many help to improve performance in sport or dance and to prevent injuries due to these activities.
