It helps achieve a balance between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems by targeting the possible cause and/or perpetuating factors leading to and keeping the body in its state of imbalance.

NMT utilises advanced massage techniques to restore postural alignment, release muscle spasms, release nerve entrapment from soft tissue structures, eliminate myofascial trigger points causing referred pain symptoms, increase limited flexibility and joint range of motion and promote good biomechanics.

Postural assessment, range of motion testing and stretching exercises may be used to find the source of discomfort. Muscle re-education and greater body awareness will aim to make permanent changes to obtain a healthy, happy body.
