The St. John Method of Neuromuscular Therapy

The St. John Method of NMT is a comprehensive program of soft tissue manipulation techniques that balance the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system (skeleton and muscles of the body).  This method considers five principles that cause pain.  They are:

  1. Ischemia

  2. Trigger points

  3. Nerve compression or entrapment

  4. Postural distortion

  5. Biomechanical dysfunction

This method also maintains that realigning vertebrae without treating associated soft tissue frequently treats the symptom and not the cause.

How Does Neuromuscular Therapy Help You?

NMT can help individuals experiencing structural distortion, biomechanical dysfunction and the accompanying pain that is often a symptom of the underlying problem.  It is used to locate and release spasm and hypercontraction in the tissues:  eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain; restore postural alignment, proper biomechanics and flexibility to the tissues; rebuild the strength of injured tissues and assist venous and lymphatic flow.  NMT is an effective and economically feasible method of treatment.
