Articulatory/mobilizing techniques – techniques primarily for moving and mobilizing a joint;
Soft tissue techniques – this would include all movement massage techniques such as Swedish, sports massage, deep tissue.
Functional techniques – all techniques which do not directly engage a restriction – these might include passive motion, harmonic or rhythmic.
Neuromuscular techniques -Neuromuscular therapy consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure on the areas of muscle spasm. The massage therapy pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles, or elbow. Once applied to a muscle spasm, the pressure should not vary for ten to thirty seconds.
Neuromuscular therapy will feel painful at first, but the pressure of the massage should alleviate the muscle spasm. At this point, it is extremely important to communicate with the massage therapist regarding the pressure – whether the pressure is too much, too little, getting better, getting worse. The therapist should listen and respond accordingly. The massage therapy pressure should never be overly painful. In fact, most people describe the pressure as “good pain”
