What is Neuromuscular Therapy

The most effective type of massage therapy for lower back pain is pass4sure PHR neuromuscular therapy. Neuromuscular therapy is also called trigger point myotherapy. The American Academy of Pain Management recognizes this form of massage therapy as an effective treatment for back pain caused by soft tissue injury (such as a muscle strain).

Neuromuscular therapy has a holistic approach towards healing in that emphasis is laid on stimulating the body to heal itself. Once this healing has begun, neuromuscular therapy techniques are used to stimulate soft-tissue repair in the affected areas. During a typical session of neuromuscular therapy, the therapist will first examine the patient and his or her medical history in an attempt to accurately gauge all the factors that are creating and prolonging pain. Once the problem areas have been identified, alternating levels of concentrated pressure are applied on the areas of muscle spasm with the fingers, knuckles or elbow.

Neuromuscular therapy works by addressing the following six physiological factors which can intensify pain patterns. They are:

  • Trigger points – trigger points are highly irritable points in the nervous system.
  • Nerve entrapment/compression – when a nerve gets pressed constantly between the surrounding structures, it can lead to an acute kind of chronic pain.
  • Postural distortions – Postural distortions result in underdevelopment of the supporting muscles and thereby lead to their weakening.
  • Nutrition – Lack of adequate nutrition to pass4sure PHR the cells leads to an overall weakening of the entire system.
  • Ischemia – In a condition such as Ischemia, the cells and tissues get a reduced blood supply and as a result are under-nourished.
  • Stress – Stress plays havoc with the functioning of the nervous and musculoskeletal system.

Neuromuscular therapy is used to treat conditions such as chronic pain, sciatica, rotator cuff dysfunction, carpal tunnel syndrome, temporomandibular joint dysfunction and migraines. It is also used in the treatment of some physical and sexual abuse-related traumas. Neuromuscular therapy is also the most effective type of massage therapy for lower back pain. It is also used to locate and release spasms and hyper contractions in the tissue. It aids the healing process for injured tissue, assists in venous and lymphatic flow, restores postural alignment, and imparts flexibility to the tissues.

Health Benefits of Thai Massage

Ever been for a Thai massage? If you have, you will know that it is heavenly and oh-so-divine! But if you have never been pampered under a cool, shady banyan tree in a beautiful Buddhist temple or on a beach in Thailand, the good news is NOW you can get your Thai massage fix right here in Malaysia!

Contrary to the popular Swedish massage of the West (which focuses on the physical aspect of the body with the kneading of muscles),Thai Massage addresses and combines techniques usually found isolated in the Western physiotherapies such as Trigger Point Treatments, Myofascial Techniques, Neuro Muscular therapy, and Manual Therapy among others. The combination of energetic and physical aspects is what makes Thai Massage unique and so effective. Traditional Thai massage is a deep, full-body treatment. It starts at the feet and progresses up to the head using a sequence of gentle, flowing exercise movements. The recipient’s body is moved and loosened; the joints and the muscles stretched with some techniques linked to Yoga. This unique type of massage influences the energetic side as well, restoring the flow of energy throughout the body with applied acupressure on the ‘sen’ energy lines of the body, aimed at harmonizing and energizing.

It is this combination of yoga stretching, the calmness of meditation with acupressure, exercise movements and reflexology that makes it a healing art.

Thai massage is worked on a floor with the client dressed in comfortable loose clothing without the use of oil. Using mainly point pressure and muscle stretching, the Thai method not only use hands to free tension stored in the recipient’s body, but the feet, knees and elbows are used as well. The mat allows therapists to use their body weight to massage you, which elevates the uniqueness of the experience.

 

What are the benefits of having a Thai massage? 

If you’ve been stressed at work or have a tight neck from hunching over your laptop, a Thai massage will relieve the pain of stressed and overworked muscles. It also releases build up of lactic acid and toxins.

A Thai massage will increase your range of motion (through combination of assisted stretching and muscle manipulation) and so also prevents injury.

If you’re a sloucher it will improve your posture and body alignment!

Although you may feel sleepy straight after, it actually increases your energy levels and balances the body’s energy pathways. According to traditional Thai medicine the body has 72 000 energy lines of which 10 are considered principal. These energy lines are conduits for the ‘flow of life’ (or ‘vital energy’). Physical benefits aside, a Thai massage aims to unblock these energy paths which promotes both physical and mental wellness.

Having a Thai massage will increase blood circulation and stimulate nerve endings, often resulting in people saying they bodies feel light after a massage.

And the best benefit of all? It’s body toning! ^_^
