NeuroKinetic Therapy™, known as Neuromuscular Reprogramming® (NMR®) in its previous incarnation, is an innovative and relatively new method of bodywork and muscle therapywhich utilizes manual muscle testing to assess dysfunctions of the coordination system of the brain resulting from traumatic injury, over use, under use, repetitive stress, postural stress, etc. It cues the brain for new learning resulting in immediate correction of neuromuscular imbalances. NKT works with the body’s organizational intelligence, addressing pain at its source: the motor control center of the brain. Practitioners can quickly and accurately correct the dysfunctional postural and movement patterns that are the source of most mystifying chronic pain and degeneration of the muscles and joints.
NeuroKinetic Therapy™ works by communicating with the motor control center of the brain. Most musculoskeletal pain is caused by imbalances of neurological origins wherein some muscles are overactive, while others are inaccessible by the brain. Using manual muscle testing, the neuromuscular patterns governing these movements are accessed in the brain’s motor-control center and can be “edited” for greater efficiency. This process allows NKT™ to yield faster and longer-lasting results than many other techniques.
NKT™ uses strategy, not force to achieve results. It can provide solutions for conditions that have not responded to previous treatments. This advanced therapy blends well with and is the perfect adjunct to other treatments such as chiropractic, physical therapy and acupuncture.
Some of the benefits of NKT include:
Uses muscle testing to locate the source of the problem
Achieves faster, longer-lasting results than many methods
Eliminates enduring patterns of dysfunction from old injuries
Reduce the effects of repetitive stress injuries
Enhances athletic performance
Quickly improves muscle coordination
Increases range of motion, energy, strength and stamina throughout the body
Work is done with clothes on for maximum comfort
Coupled with corrective exercises for maximum benefit
