BENEFITS OF MASSAGE THERAPY | PALM HARBOR

Massage therapy in Palm Harbor refers to a comprehensive health management strategy focusing on the application of various massage therapy techniques to positively affect the soft tissues and joints of the body. Massage techniques most commonly include compression, kneading, friction, and mobilizing to improve the health and condition of the muscles, tendons, skin, fascia and/or connective tissues of the body.
Massage therapy is one of the oldest methods of healing, as the practice of therapeutic massage can be traced back nearly 4,000 years.
Today, massage therapy is thought of as a holistic therapy that complements medical treatment(s). The “Physician’s Guide to Therapeutic Massage” shows that massage can decrease pain, promote soft tissue healing by improving range of motion, aid in the circulation of blood and lymph flow, reduce muscle and joint soreness, and improve sleep.
If you have been referred to us by a physician, we will work with your doctor to come up with a plan of treatment that will benefit you quickly. We can also provide referrals for physicians should we feel that you may need further treatment.

Neuromuscular Massage Palm Harbor

What is Neuromuscular Massage?

Neuromuscular massage therapy is a very specialized form of manual massage therapy.  An NMT therapist is educated in the physiology of the nervous system and its effect on the muscular and skeletal systems.  The Neuromuscular Therapist also is educated in kinesiology and biomechanics and the functioning of the human nervous system.

By definition, Neuromuscular massage is the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain.  This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system.  In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and thought) to the body very slowly.   Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction.

Neuromuscular therapy massage works to stabilize low levels of neurological activity to maintain normal function and overall health.

Neuromuscular therapy will address five elements that may be causing you pain:

  • 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 b 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 the golf swing or tennis stroke, computer keyboarding)

Neuromuscular therapy consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure of the areas of muscle spasm.  The massage therapy pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles or elbow.  Once applied to a muscle spasm, the pressure should not vary for ten to thirty seconds.

Massage Therapy for Pain Reduction

Muscles that are in spasm will be painful to the touch.  The pain is caused by ischemic muscle tissue.  Ischemia means the muscle is lacking proper blood flow, usually due to the muscle spasm.  This in turn creates a situation where muscle is not receiving enough blood or enough oxygen.  This lack of oxygen causes the muscle to produce lactic acid, making the muscle feel sore following physical activity. After the muscle is relaxed through massage therapy, the lactic acid will be released from the muscle, and the muscle should state receiving enough blood and oxygen.

Neuromuscular therapy may feel unfamiliar or even slightly painful at first, by the pressure of the massage should alleviate the muscle spasm.  At this point, it is extremely important to communicate with the massage therapist regarding the pressure – where the pressure is too much, too little, getting better, getting worse.  The therapist will listen and respond accordingly.

What to expect after Neuromuscular Massage Therapy

Following a Neuromuscular therapy massage, any soreness that presents itself should fade after twenty-four to forty-eight house.  The muscles that were tight should remain noticeably more relaxes for four to fourteen days,  depending on stress, activity level, and severity of back pain prior to beginning massage therapy.
