Advanced 450-Hour NMT Program

Advanced Deep Tissue

Done properly, “deep tissue” is about specificity of touch and angles of entry, not the compressive forces usually associated with this modality. In the ANMT the student therapist will gain an understanding of what it means to be more engaged while using less pressure and better body mechanics. The ANMT bodywork focuses on use of fingers, thumbs and elbows to palpate and identify bony landmarks and taut tissue. When the neuromuscular therapist finds a “knot,” this area will be hypersensitive for the client. As the therapist finds the appropriate angle of entry to focus touch on these areas, this will create a sensation of deep pressure for the patient/client. The client feels less pain than a traditional deep tissue massage and will experience better long term healing. Along with these new concepts and understandings of the bodywork come increased longevity in the field of massage and pain free work for the massage therapist.
