John has been practicing massage for over 15 years, the last 5 specializing in Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT). NMT is a detailed treatment of muscle spasms which cause postural distortions, pain and limited range of motion. Sessions begin with a thorough postural analysis, which can indicate the cause of the pain, and guide the treatment. NMT focuses on muscle spasms called trigger points (TPs) , which can cause local pain and also cause referred pain (e.g., TPs in shoulder cause can pain in hand).
NMT is an effective treatment for acute and chronic pain (back pain, neck pain, migraine headaches, forearm/wrist/hand pain, TMJ issues, etc.). Treatments also include other massage modalities (deep tissue, myofascial release, circulatory) as appropriate.
John also offers a detailed, one session treatment of the fascia in the lower leg, from the knee to the toes. This treatment is especially beneficial for dancers, and others who need maximum
fluidity of movement in the knee, ankle and foot.
