Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy facilitates homeostasis between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems by enhancing the functions of the joints, muscles and biomechanics of the body and speeds healing by facilitating the release of the body’s natural pain killer endorphins.
This type of massage therapy focuses on working with those experiencing muscular discomfort and pain. This type of massage is sometimes referred to as clinical massage or medical massage and has been shown as an effective means of providing relief from soft tissue pain problems.
Many health-related conditions and sports, automobile and work-related injuries respond well to this form of therapeutic massage. Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy is helpful in the treatment of low back pain, sciatica, whiplash, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains and strains, plantar fasciitis, and shin splints.
While the goal of massage is often relaxation, the goal of Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy is to identify and eliminate muscular pain and discomfort. Sessions frequently begin using assessment techniques that include postural analysis and orthopedic and other tests to help identify the most likely causes and contributing factors involved in the muscular discomfort.
Sessions require active client participation, as the client’s input and feedback are critical to help the massage therapist to identify the source of the pain problem. Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy clients typically start to feel measurable improvement after three to five sessions. The total number and length of sessions will vary, depending on each client’s response and condition.
