Out of all the different types of massage that are done at Los Angeles Therapeutic Massage, the one most popular among our clients is the neuromuscular massage therapy. This is due to its effectiveness in relieving pain without any form of medication.
What is Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) and trigger point therapy?
In the 1930’s Dr. Stanley Lief, a trained Chiropractor and Naturopathic Physician, along with his cousin Boris Chaitow who was also trained in chiropractic and naturopathy, experimented with neuromuscular treatments for muscular pain at Lief’s world-famous health resort in Hertfordshire, England.
The treatment was so successful that their neuromuscular technique became common practice in osteopathic and sports therapy venues all over Europe.
Over the next several decades, two American Doctors, Dr. Janet Travell and Dr. David Simons published a two volume set of textbooks titled “The Trigger Point Manual on Upper Body and Lower Body Pain” that identified with documentation, research, and references that the Source of most pain is “knots” in your muscles.
A whole new field of study for chronic pain was introduced to the medical, dental, massage, and therapeutic communities called Neuromuscular Therapy. Dr. Janet Travell went on to become the first woman White House Physician and the personal physician to President John F. Kennedy.
President Kennedy credits her Trigger Point Neuromuscular Therapy as the only effective treatment for his debilitating back pain that was so crippling he considered stepping down as President. With such research and endorsement behind this type of therapy, it seems the effectiveness of neuromuscular is the reason why people drive from all around to visit Los Angeles Therapeutic Massage.
