The most common reason for booking a treatment with Vitality Therapy is muscle pain due to your"knots".
So what do we mean by "knots"? Technically speaking they are either Trigger points (or Myofascial Trigger Points to give them their correct name) or hypertonic muscles.
There are six key elements that cause acute or chronic muscle pain:
Ischemia: the lack of blood flow to soft tissues that causes hypersensitivity to touch.
Hypertonic muscles: very tense muscles or muscle spasms.
Trigger points: highly irritated points and bands in the muscles that refer pain to other parts of the body.
Nerve entrapment/compression: pressure on a never by soft tissue, cartilage or bone.
Postural distortions: imbalance of the musculoskeletal system resulting from poor posture while siting at a desk.
Bio-mechanical distortions: imbalance of the musculoskeletal system resulting in faulty movement patterns e.g. poor sports techniques.
A massage therapist has a wide variety of techniques in their toolkit to help release muscle pain including NMT.
