Neuromuscular Treatment- Also known as NMT, is applied to work out chronic tension the muscle holds. It is used specifically to treat pain and pain patterns, and to unlock the reflexive trigger point patterns.( NMT is a process.)
Sports massage- is working specific muscle groups from attachment to insertion with cross fiber techniques, and friction. We friction around joints to break up scare tissue, and strip muscles to stretch the fibers. I will also apply ice, or heat, or both depending on what is going on with the muscle groups. I focus on the muscle groups that your sport uses the most to ensure you become a better athlete, and prevent injury.
Thai Massage- I practice Thai massage on the table. This technique is deep stretching, and compressions throughout your muscles, and ligaments. I integrate Swedish, and deep tissue into my Thai massage sessions.
