About NeuroMuscular Therapy:
Integrative NeuroMuscular Therapy (NMT) is a comprehensive system of soft-tissue manipulation techniques that were developed in the 1930s in England by Dr Stanley Lief.
It balances the Central Nervous System with the structure and form of the Musculoskeletal system.
NMT addresses the release of tissues layer by layer, superficial to deep, treating origins and insertions as well as the belly of the muscles. It does not require a great deal of pressure to be effective, which is a benefit to the patient. In the proper application of NMT, a “dig it out” mentality is never appropriate.
It stimulates the body to heal on its own. Integrative NeuroMuscular Therapy approaches healing from a holistic perspective (mind/body) creating long-term results.
As stated by the famous W.D, “Peter” Lane B.A, LMT, CNMT, Director of the NeuroMuscular Therapy Center of New Mexico, instructor of anatomy and physiology and my mentor and instructor, “NeuroMuscular Therapy is based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system maintains homoeostatic balance, and in many cases, eliminates the cause of a person’s acute to chronic myofascial pain and dysfunction. Through the application of modern-day integrative NMT procedures, which include craniosacral therapy, myofascial release, positional release and trigger point therapy, homeostasis (balance) is restored between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Integrative NeuroMuscular Therapy enhances the function of joints, muscles, and the biomechanics of the body, and speeds healing by facilitating the release of the body’s natural pain killers, endorphins.”
About CranioSacral Therapy:
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, light touch therapy that facilitates profound physical and emotional changes in the patient by actually resetting the Nervous System. It is subtle palpating body movements that accentuate and coincide with the CranioSacral pumping action of the cerebral spinal fluid which improves the functioning of the brain and spinal cord.
Results in improved functioning of the brain and spinal cord and resets the Nervous System which decreases the stimuli to overstimulated nerves resulting in improved functioning of all the major systems of the body, relaxation of traumatized muscles and organs, more appropriate alignment of the skeletal frame, dissipates the negative effects of prolonged stress and releases accumulated mental/emotional trauma.
The CranioSacral system is functionally related to the Central Nervous System, the Autonomic Nervous System, the Neuromuscular System, the Musculoskeletal System and the Endocrine System.
