Origins of Neuromuscular Massage Therapy

In India there is a 4,000-year-old system of medicine known as Ayurveda. This ‘Science of Life’ deals with nuance changes in one’s diet, daily activities, and even though process to balance the ‘dochas’ that govern any one person. It is commonly held thinking within the Ayurvedic community that, ‘If one is interested in what they will look like in three years look at one’s thinking now, and if one is interested in what they were thinking three years ago, look in a mirror’. In short the body is the literally a ‘print-out’ of the mind.

Neuromuscular massage therapy has it’s roots in the traditions of Ayurveda. In fact neuromuscular massage therapy has been used for hundreds of years in the treatment of neck pain, low back and chronic pain. It is even used to assist in treatment of recovering substance addition. Just the simple act of focused intention in a caring manor on one who is suffering creates a measurable benefit within the body itself. Although somewhat controversial from a scientific vantage point, it is folly to assume that the allopathic medical community comprehends the complete nature of human health.
