Neural Tissue Tension, also known as (NTT), is used to release
the tensions found in the nerves that extend out of the spinal
cord and connect with all the muscles, blood vessels, bones
and organs of the body. When there are tensions or compression
of nerves, this can result in altered electrical impulses
to the desired destination. This can produce pain, poor function,
altered posture, muscle spasms and more.
Tensions in nerves can come from injury or trauma, muscle
compression ,joint imbalances, emotional upset etc. This therapy
works well in combination with cranial therapy, strain counterstrain
or muscle energy.
What can you expect as a client?
You will be asked to lie fully clothed on the massage table
and the therapist will apply gentle to moderate pressure at
various locations to release the desired nerve. This may take
anywhere from 90 seconds to a few minutes. A decrease in pain
and an improvement in function are the outcomes.
