Integrative Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy is a form of pressure therapy that has its origins in the oriental healing arts of Shiatsu and Accupressure. Raymond Nimmo DC and James Vannerson DC have utilized the fundatmental principles of the oriental healing arts and created a very specific hands-on therapy for the reduction and/or treatment of chronic myofascial pain.

This powerful therapy normalizes and harmonizes two very important body systems: the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. It works toward the stress-tension pain cycle and the dissolving of long term pain patterns.

With the Integrative approach, neuromuscular therapy is brought into a more compassionate mode by utilizing bodywork, moist heat and herbal liniments to prepare the tissue before penetrating into the deeper layers of muscles. This makes the treatments more effective: less uncomfortable for the client and more rewarding and meaningful for the therapist.

This powerful and very effective therapy is presented in a 7 day format, presenting step by step treatment plans for the entire body, with clearly illustated class notes. View the syllabus to see the in-depth content of the course.

" I took my first class eigtht years ago right after finishing massage school. Her incredible notes and step by step instruction helped me to be a much better therapist. I have learned more from her classes than from anyone else. I attribute much of my success to ther techniuqes which have many of my clients. The NMT techniques have created many opportunites to work deeply and save my own arms and hands. This has helped me to have a steady and financially successful clientele. Thank you Peggy" K.Roberts, Denver, Colorado

" The neuromuscular class was a delight to take.

The notes with anatomical illustrations and step by step instruction are fabulous and really helped us visual learners to comprehend and internalize the theory and the hands-on work

Having a model demo and then practicing the routines on each other with her imput and guidance also helped to really grasp and experience the therapy as it should be done. I gained confidence in using neuromuscular therapy as well as gaining a heighten sense of intuition for the feel of the tissues under my hands.

I liked the small class setting and felt free to ask questions and seek advice on my technique when I was not quite confident. I feel we as a class received individual attention and care as needed.

I have been using NMT more in my practice since taking the class. I feel more able to identify trigger points and treat them effectively. Using the whole back routine to clear muscle groups has been very helpful to my clients. Another client had an emotional release when working on the rhomboids.

Meeting Peggy's former students who think so highly of her teaching is quite a testimonial in itself. I have reccommended the classes to many of my co-workers and fellow studentmates. I look foward to further studies with Peggy" C.Pettigrew--Denver, Colorado
