This can be very beneficial to a patient who finds it too painful for a deep tissue massage & adjustment, NMT can allow certain muscles too drop and ease muscle spasms.
Physiotherapy is a wonderful therapy to help stimulate certain muscle groups that may have been used when resting post injury or surgery. The application of para-metrics (resistant band work) using dynamic tension to build these injured muscle groups back to optimum functionality. Our physiotherapists use Acupuncture as well as other techniques that can stimulate muscle groups and quicken healing time.
