Neuromuscular Therapy—St. John Method, founded by Paul St. John, is a hands-on approach to resolving soft- tissue pain. The St. John Method embodies a wide variety of therapeutic techniques and applications that work toward restoring homeostasis (balance) between the muscular and nervous systems. Therapeutic applications of the St. John Method include ischemic compression and trigger point therapy. The therapy alleviates localized and remote (referred) sensations such as aches and pains, pins and needles or numbness and tingling and thermal sensations such as burning.
