What is it?
NST is a dynamic and skilful professional bodywork technique,which aims to reintegrate the body as a whole, reorganising the musculature of the body to obtain lasting relief from pain and dysfunction, and increase energy levels.
The main aim of the Neurostructural Integration Technique is to remove pain and dysfunctional physiological and psychological conditions, by restoring the structural integrity of the body. Essentially, if every muscle in the body is in its correct position i.e. in homeostasis, then all of the other systems will be in homeostasis as a reciprocal consequence and health will abound.
What is it ideal for?
- Neck problems including whiplash
- Headaches including migraine
- Back problems
- Leg problems including hamstrings
- Knees and ankle problems
- Accident injuries (acute and chronic)
- Sports injuries (acute and chronic)
- Digestive and bowel problems
- Respiratory problems including asthma
- Menstrual and menopausal disorders
- Acute and chronic fatigue
- Stress conditions and emotional depression
What is the treatment?
The treatment comprises of sequences of very gentle but specific and specialised moves on the body, cross-fibre manoeuvring of muscle, tendon, ligament or nerve, using varying pressure carried out in a very specific, pre-determined and systematic manner.
Initially the body responds to these moves by becoming extremely relaxed. This relaxation creates a temporary contextual shift in structural status, providing a window of opportunity for various, spinal, somatic, cranial and autonomic reflexes to be activated, thereby bringing about a comprehensive resetting of the whole body. During this process of 'resetting', the body attempts to return to its optimal structural position within the given context set by the individual recipient's 'state of health', and in doing so sets in motion very powerful corrective energy flows that have an extremely beneficial therapeutic effect on the body and mind. Consequently, the lymphatic system is stimulated; venous and arterial blood flow enhanced and the whole corrective tissue system activated.
In addition to this whole body 'resetting' response that takes place, corrective energy flows can be directed into specific areas of the body where there is either pain or dysfunction.
Each treatment session, lasting up to one hour, is £95 and you may require up to a maximum of three treatments in total
