Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) is an approach to soft tissue manual therapy in which quasi-static pressure is applied to soft tissue to stimulate skeletal striated muscle. Through applied knowledge of trigger points, neuromuscular therapy addresses postural distortion (poor posture), biomechanical dysfunction, nerve compression syndrome, and ischemia. In NMT, one must apply manual pressure perpendicular to the skin surface if muscle is to be stimulated.
VO2 max is the maximum rate of oxygen consumption as measured during incremental exercise, most typically on a motorized treadmill. Maximal oxygen consumption reflects the aerobic physical fitness of the individual, and is an important determinant of their endurance capacity during prolonged, sub-maximal exercise.
We can measure your unique Resting Metabolic Rate. This is the number of calories your body would burn if you did nothing more than sit in a chair all day. This is similar to what is known as your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). Your Resting Metabolic Rate is related to your lean body mass or the fat-free part of your body. Your lean body mass is made up of muscle and internal organs.
