If you are looking for a licensed massage therapist that specialises in neuromuscular treatment, sports and deep tissue massage, we are here for you. Our clinic is located in Whangaparaoa on the Hibiscus coast of Auckland.
Neuromuscular massage, which has been used for several hundred years, is based on an understanding of the neuromuscular system, knowing that the nervous system controls everything in the body, which includes muscle tension.
More specifically, neuromuscular massage focuses on trigger point therapy and PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitative) stretches which target nerve impaction. A trigger point is an area of the body that triggers pain in another part of the body.
When a trigger point spasms in the body, it is an indicator that blood flow to that area is decreased; decreased blood flow means decreased oxygen to that muscle as well, which can prohibit the muscle from working properly, or shut down altogether.
