Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy, also known as Trigger Point Therapy or Myotherapy - applies concentrated thumb/finger pressure to "trigger points" to break cycles of muscle spasm and pain and to improve general function.

These points are painful irritated areas in muscle, congested spots of muscle tissue and areas of restricted blood flow; these can put pressure on nerves, which may radiate pain to other areas. Treatment helps to normalise and eliminate the dysfunction.

The technique is often used in combination with other treatments such as those used in Remedial and Sports Massage.
