What to expect on your first NST session:
On your first visit, you will receive a structural evaluation (INT), where your body is measured against a grid. Structural inequities are observed, and the best program to correct them is determined. Manual therapy (NST) is applied to alleviate pain. The client is given applicable exercises and stretches to practice at home. Later in the program, strength conditioning is used to promote ongoing fitness & success.
What is Neurosomatic Therapy (NST)?
Neurosomatic Therapy (NST) is an integrative form of manual therapy that identifies and corrects structural and biomechanical patterns in the body that cause chronic pain. Chronic pain is traditionally treated in a way that does not address the underlying soft tissue causes of pain. When performed in isolation, Massage Therapy, Physical Therapy, and medicinal pain management fail to address the entire health issue. By using careful analysis of dysfunctional postural and movement patterns to create a comprehensive therapy program NST fully addresses the five stages of rehabilitation:
- Eliminate Muscle Spasm
- Restore Flexibility
- Restore Proper Biomechanics
- Increase Muscle Strength
- Increase Muscular Endurance
The best part of NST is that it not only eliminates pain, but it also allows us to educate you on ways to prevent recurrence of the injury.
Integrative Neurosomatic Therapy (INT) is a structurally integrative approach to pain relief. The method is based on finding improper structural and biomechanical patterns in the patient’s body through a series of detailed body measurements and charting. Once these postural patterns are analyzed a comprehensive program is designed to guide the client through rehabilitation. Our purpose is to not only eliminate the pain, but educate you on ways to prevent recurrence of the injury.
INT fills a void left by traditional health care by analyzing soft tissue causes of pain. According to recent research approximately 90% of pain symptoms are considered idiopathic, which means there is no known cause. We believe the reason is that a proper investigation into the patient’s soft tissues is not being performed. INT is a process to analyze and thoroughly explore the muscles, tendons, and ligaments to find these hidden sources of pain.
