NeuroMuscular Therapy By John Eastman

Developed by John Eastman, NeuroMuscular Therapy is a healthcare system devoted to the restoration and preservation of well being through the gentle manipulation of the body’s muscular skeletal system and other soft tissue including the fascia. These tissues may become compressed and distorted due to illness, accident or stress related tension.

By correcting the imbalances, compressions and distortions through NeuroMuscular Therapy the body’s ability to function better and to heal itself is greatly improved. Not only those fluid systems conveying blood, lymph and cerebrospinal fluid are improved but the nerves which run through the fascia and muscles are better able to carry their healing instructions more effectively to all parts of the body.

Illness, accident, mental stress all impact negatively on the nervous system, reducing it’s effectiveness and efficiency. The knock on effect is a reduction in blood supply which in turn reduces both oxygen and vital nutrition to all the cells of the body. In addition muscular and fascia tension reduces lymphatic drainage making it more difficult for the body to eliminate toxins and waste materials. This in turn prolongs inflammation restriction and immobility around joints which can increase wear and tear and reduce overall freedom of movement.

NeuroMuscular Therapy unlike other forms of physical therapy is gentle yet very effective. Rather than forcefully challenging areas of tension and fixation and trying to “make them to let go”, Neuromuscular Therapy releases tension and fixation and brings about an adjustment that leaves the body deeply relaxed, better aligned with an overall improvement in function and well being.
