Neuromuscular massage therapy or NMT is considered a special type of manual massage therapy. Professionally trained therapists can perform this massage. They must be adequately trained in physiotherapy methods, as this massage affects the nervous system of the body.
How does neuromuscular stimulation treatment work?
This type of massage is done on certain body parts. The parts of the body are used to apply the required pressure to elbows, fingertips and sometimes a small device called a T-bar is used. This pressure is applied for about 30 seconds at a time. This method affects the elastic tissue layers of tendons, muscles, and other connective tissues in the body.
It also maintains balance in the central nervous system. When the general function of nerves is disturbed by trauma, improper posture, injury, or stress, they start to deform and this causes dysfunction of body parts as well as severe pain. Neuromuscular massage therapy helps relieve this added stress and gradually improves the health of the nervous system.
Benefits of neuromuscular therapy
There are many health disorders that are treated with general neuromuscular therapy. If you have ischemia, a condition in which you become hypersensitive to touch due to reduced blood supply to the body's delicate tissues; then it also works very well with the body's trigger points, which are considered the points of maximum irritation.
Poor posture, physical imbalance, and biomechanical dysfunction of the body can be easily promoted with the help of this massage.
