Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)
NMT is a thorough program of recovery from acute and chronic pain syndromes which uses specific massage therapy, stretching, and flexibility to eliminate the causes of most neuromuscular patterns. This specific and scientific approach to muscular pain relief will help to bring about balance between the musculoskeletal system and biomechanics and it releases endorphins, the body's own natural painkillers. It can be a part of a comprehensive program, complementing all other health care modalities. Neuromuscular Therapy examines six physiological factors that may create or intensify pain patterns.

These six factors are:
1. Ischemia
2. Trigger Points
3. Nerve Entrapment/Compression
4. Postural Distortions
5. Nutrition
6. Emotional Well being

The fundamental principle of NMT is that the body seeks balance. Because of physical trauma, gravity, psychological stress and repetitive strain, a pattern of compensation develops in which the muscles harden, contract and pull the skeletal frame into a distorted position.

The postural distortion develops over time because of repetitive strain or happens immediately after trauma, such as a car accident. Neuromuscular Therapy intervenes in this cycle by releasing spastic, contracted soft tissues, freeing up and discharging nervous system irritation, and helping right the posture as the skeleton finds a more normalizing position. (Excerpt from the website of NMT Center of Neuromuscular Therapy.)

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without the use of oils, creams, or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of fascia.

The John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach is considered to be the ultimate therapy that is safe, gentle and effective in producing results that last. He is the authority of myofascial relese and is considered to be a visionary and teacher of the highest caliber. Julie has trained directly under John Barnes. (Excerpt from the website of John F.
