NeuroKinetic Therapy®

NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT)® gets to the source of the problem rather than simply addressing the symptoms. It is an innovative and relatively new method of bodywork and muscle therapy which utilitzes 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® 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 

 

WHAT TO EXPECT FOR AN NKT® SESSION:

Please wear comfotable clothing as the work is done with clothes on. Each individual is unique and sessions are customized to you, but will always consist of the following protocol:

  1. A detailed description of all past and present pain, injuries, surgeries and conditions. This is an important part of the puzzle since it is a frequent occurrence that a 30-year-old scar or the trauma of falling on your head as a child can have last neurological effects.

  2. Postural and Movement Assessments

  3. Palpation of tissues to determine if they are inflamed, restricted, tender, or flaccid.

  4. Manual Muscle Testing to determine what tissues or movements are being inhibited from functioning properly and what tissues or movements are over-working.

  5. Release of the over-active tissue using myofascial release or other modalities to decrease the signal from the brain.

  6. Reactivation of the under-active tissues. After releasing the over-active tissue there is a window of opportunity for retraining the brain. This window of time is used to re-establish a correct and functional neural pathway by engaging the proper muscles for whatever function it is that we are trying to achieve. The muscles that were being inhibited or compensated for by other muscles are now able to receive signals from the brain so they can function properly.

  7. You will receive a self-care program according to the unique findings during your session. This self-care program is important for integrating the proper functional patterns into the brain and the body.
