Once located, a variety of techniques such as stretching, friction, and pressure are used to alleviate pain. Then the surrounding muscles and soft tissues will be worked to facilitate the bodies return to homeostasis. The benefits of NMT include improved posture, increased range of motion, increased injury repair, decreased stress, increased circulation, and relief of chronic and acute pain.
