Neuromuscular Therapy

width=592

Neuromuscular Therapy is a precise, thorough examination & treatment of the body's soft tissues. This modality assesses and addresses Ischemia. (tight tissue with reduced blood flow), myofascial trigger points, (hypersensitive points within muscles that give rise to reffered phenomena including pain), and nerve compression and entrapment, (pressure on nerves by osseous and other bonelike tissues, such as cartilage or discs and pressure on nerves by muscle and other soft tissues). It utilizes postural assessment and assessment of dysfunctional gait patterns as tools for treatment. NMT can be highly effective for clients who present with chronic pain and is often successful in reducing or eliminating longstanding painful conditions.

UPCOMING CLASSES

2017

NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY - PELVIS (20 hrs) Fri evening, Nov 17 (6 pm - 10 pm) & Sat & Sun, Nov 18 & 19 (9 am - 6 pm). In this class, we will take an in-depth look at the pelvis and its' mechanisms. Students will discover why it is often the center of other body pain and dysfunction. Students will learn how to unlock the pelvis to assist their clients to improved function. Students will understand the stages of pelvic rehabilitation and how to enforce them. Prerequisite: Massage Therapy Fundamentals or equivalent. Instructor: Georgia Ramos Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY - PRINCIPLES & POSTURAL ANALYSIS (16 hrs) Thurs & Fri, Dec 14 & 15 (9 am - 6 pm). This class covers the science and philosophy of neuromuscular therapy allowing an understanding of how and why it works so effectively. It covers the physiological principles of ischemia, trigger points, nerve compression/entrapment, postural distortion and dysfunctional biomechanics. You will also learn what the body's position in space can tell you and how to use your eyes to truly understand where the body's pain is coming from so you can treat the cause and the not the symptom. You will not only learn how to see the position, but also to determine which muscles are being utilized. This class is a "must" for anyone doing clinical massage or any kind of structural bodywork. Prerequisite: None. Anatomy class recommended. Instructor: Georgia Ramos Cost: $240 Prepay: 2-Wk $232, 4-Wk $225.

2018

NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY - NECK & UPPER TORSO (20 hrs) Fri eve, Jan 19 (6:15 pm - 10 pm) & Sat & Sun, Jan 20 & 21 (9 am - 6 pm). Structural evaluation and neuromuscular technique will be taught to release the upper torso and cervical area. Students will assess how one part of the body will continue to cause problems in other areas. Highly specific work to fully release each area worked-on will be taught. Spine intercostals, abdominal and chest and Thoracic Outlet Syndrome will be addressed. Prerequisite: Massage Therapy Fundamentals or equivalent. Instructor: Georgia Ramos Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.

NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY - SHOULDERS & EXTREMITIES (20 hrs) Fri eve, April 20 (6 pm - 10 pm) & Sat & Sun, April 21 & 22 (9 am - 6 pm). Structural evaluation and neuromuscular technique will be taught to release such conditions as thoracic outlet syndrome, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciaitis, and shin splints. You will learn to release all of the muscles involved and their pain patterns and begin rehabilitation. Also covered will by the forearms, hands, legs and feet. Prerequisite: Massage Therapy Fundamentals or equivalent. Anatomy class recommended. Instructor: Georgia Ramos Cost: $295 Prepay: 2-Wk $285, 4-Wk $275.
