Neuromuscular massage is different from your normal massage, or even deep tissue massage, in the fact that it involves the ligaments, muscles, soft tissue and nervous system. The name denotes this, basically meaning “of, relating to or affecting both nerves and muscles”.
Neuromuscular Massage is basically a specific type of massage meant for people with intense, chronic pain. Due to how the massage is conducted, a licensed massage therapist can use this technique to release the muscle and “trick the brain” into not feeling pain- thus causing the person to not feel pain, as it would with a regular massage. By being able to massage the area of the body which would normally be too painful to massage, the licensed massage therapist is able to restore function and blood flow to the affected area.
Not every licensed massage therapist knows how to conduct neuromuscular massage. Here at Care Medical Centers, we employ massage therapists with the “CNMT” designation, which means they are a certified neuromuscular massage therapist.
As with some intensive massages, you might experience some soreness after a neuromuscular massage. This soreness should fade after 24-36 hours and you should experience relaxation of the painful muscle for 4-14 days.
If you have severe back pain or chronic neck pain, you might be a candidate for neuromuscular massage. Call us today at our Hollywood, FL or Ft. Lauderdale locations to schedule your evaluation to see if neuromuscular massage is right for you: (954) 981-4355.
