Massage Therapy in Vaughan

Massage Therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body (muscles and connective tissues). Manipulating and re-aligning these body parts speeds healing, reduces pain, and helps improve the functioning of the immune system. Massage Therapy may also alleviate stress and depression as well as symptoms of migraines, soft tissue injuries, strains/sprains, lower back pain, and muscle tension.

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT)

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) is an advanced massage technique that focuses on stimulating the origin and insertion of the muscles as well as areas of the muscle that exhibit metabolic changes called Myofascial Trigger Points. 

These Myofascial Trigger Points are located within taut bands of the muscles and are treated with the application of sustained pressure. Longitudinal strokes along the muscle fibres are also used in a specific manner to reduce the hypertonicity of the muscles. 

NMT balances the Central Nervous System with the musculoskeletal system and corrects any imbalances between the two by manipulating the soft tissues of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue).

As a result of NMT, chronic pain is reduced, the function of joints and muscles is improved, and range of motion is increased. The NMT technique also speeds the healing process by facilitating the release of endorphins.
