Neuroskeletal Therapy has been effective in increasing mobility and relieving pain associated with:
Back pain and strain.
Scoliosis and Scheuermanns disease.
Prolapsed or herniated discs.
Some post-surgical problems.
Skeletal injury or trauma.
Congenital spinal defects.
Migraines and headaches.
Sciatica and neuralgia.
Knee and hip pain.
Neck and Shoulder pain.
It should not be painful because the pressure required to activate the nervous system is so light. However, the transmission points may be tender if the misalignment has been evident for several years or more.
You may feel absolutely nothing at all or may feel some reaction. Personal sensitivity and training vary from person to person.
Some typical reactions are:
Tingling along the nerves in any or all areas of the body, not only near the active points
Heat around the Neuro-Transmission points
Muscles reacting to realign the skeleton, sometimes quite distant from the points being activated
Relaxation of muscles in areas already treated
Reaction to Neuroskeletal Therapy is completely inspanidual as it is controlled by the brain of the patient, but some reported after-effects include:
Muscle soreness the day after which is worse if the body is not immersed in hot water after treatment
Delayed muscle soreness that appears several days later after the stress has eased
Feeling tired and fatigued as the muscles relax and having to sleep
Feeling on a ‘high’ for quite e few hours after treatment
Occasionally a patient will feel quite ‘out of it’, particularly if their nervous system is extremely sensitive. Sitting quietly and having a warm cup of tea or coffee will help recovery.
You have been lying down for some time and your blood pressure has naturally decreased. Sitting up quickly will result in less blood flow to the brain until the heart responds to increase the pressure again.
If the neck has been misaligned and the blood flow restricted for some time, the sudden increase can cause a similar ‘light headed’ feeling for a few moments.
Particularly in problems that are chronic and have been stiff for years, the muscles are locked up to help prevent further misalignment. They may be full of lactic acid and other toxins because they are not flexible. Sudden release of the tension by realigning the joints does not instantly restore their elasticity. Heat and Epsom salts will help to release the stiffness in surrounding tissues.
Response to Neuroskeletal Therapy varies depending on the length of time to condition has existed, the severity of the problem, the condition of the muscles and the inspanidual’s recovery rate. Most people need between 2 and 6 treatments to start feeling great again – we will be able to tell you what to expect after your first consultation. We may also suggest remedial massage to help get you feeling better, faster.
Neuroskeletal Therapy is so gentle, it’s safe for anyone from babies to the elderly, including people with osteoporosis or other degenerative diseases. It is safe for all ages and conditions even during pregnancy.
Neuroskeletal Therapy is a purely physiological technique that is not related in any way to any other modality. Acupuncture and acupressure work on ‘energy meridians’ that are not related to the central nervous system.
Neuroskeletal Therapy is a Neuro-physiological reaction within the brain and nervous system. It does NOT have anything to do with energy, universal energy, bodywork or any other non-physical technology.
Because the treatment keeps on working for up to two days, you should not have a massage until at least two days after Neuroskeletal Therapy treatment. Good quality and non-deep massage can help release the tension out of the muscles and speed up the process of stabilising the new alignment.
Because it is non-invasive and non-manipulative, Neuroskeletal Therapy is safe to use from birth to old age even during pregnancy without the possibility of causing damage to the nerves, spine, discs or soft tissues. No bone cracking, joint twisting, tapping, muscle bouncing or flicking is applied and so a high degree of comfort and relaxation remains throughout the treatment. Some patients even sleep through their treatment. As the brain controls the reaction, the patient is in control of the entire process. Due to the natural inclination for homeostasis, the brain will not create traumas to its body. The treatment is suitable for people of all ages from babies to pregnant women and senior citizens
When any part of the skeleton is misaligned, the brain compensates for that alteration in the centre of gravity by causing an opposite shift at the other end of the spine. If you do not do a complete treatment, you will leave one end of the spine totally out of balance and the problem will immediately relapse back into its original state.
Because your brain has just realigned your skeleton, there has been a lot of pressure removed from some of the spinal nerves. The brain will take a few moments to catalogue all these alterations and you might feel that vision is blurred for a moment or that the head feels very light.
Most people feel the changes occurring during treatment, and they may continue for up to 48 hours. We recommend you have a hot shower or bath after each treatment. This will help relax the stimulated muscles as they shift into their ideal position. As your body realigns and your balance changes, you will :
Stand more comfortably with better posture
Sleep better and get out of bed more easily
Sit for longer periods of time more comfortably
Experience less tension in your neck and shoulders
Exercise more easily
Generally feel better and more active
