When a person who has never experienced Neural Reset Therapy (NRT) has their first session, they often carry a sense of disbelief throughout the session. It’s as if they are waiting for the pain to return and to start hurting again. Only it doesn’t happen. Instead, the pain is all but gone (and in some cases, completely gone).
And it happens while you are fully clothed in a relaxing, calm environment with no outside stressors weighing on you. Sounds nice, doesn’t it?
But what do I do differently that provides such tremendous relief for people who have been in pain for anywhere from just a few days to decades?
Let’s start from a different angle…
What NRT is NOT
How is NRT different from the usual methods of massage, physical therapy, or chiropractic?
- No massaging of muscles
- No deep pressure required
- No lotions or creams
- No face down positions required
- Done fully clothed
- No stretching
- No need to touch the muscle being reset
- Can be done from the opposite side of the body
- No joint adjustments
- No mechanical, electrical or electronic devices required
- No needles
- No drugs or any substances applied
How Does NRT Work?
In your body, there are specialized nerve bundles called mechanoreceptors. These receptors respond to pressure, velocity, vibration, stretch, and other forces. When receptors detect a change, a signal is sent to the spinal cord and then relayed to the brain.
With NRT, I briefly stimulate the receptors embedded in the selected muscle by asking for a position to be held or for a movement in a particular direction. Alternatively, I may tap on a muscle in such a way as to cause receptors to send a special message to the spinal cord. That new message goes through the spinal integrating center which will reset the nervous system so the muscle is optimized neurologically.
When you hold a position or I tap on a muscle, we are performing a “reset.” With the reset, the muscular pain and tightness disappear within seconds (yes … seconds).
Can NRT Help Me?
Commonly, I see the following conditions improve greatly or disappear completely:
- Neck and back pain
- Muscle spasms
- Headaches, especially tension type
- TMJ issues
- Tennis elbow
- Golf elbow
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Rotator cuff pain
- Pain from unknown causes
- Persistent pain after trauma
- Hip pain
During each session, I thoroughly evaluate each area for pain and tightness. Resets are performed for any dysfunctional muscles. The reset of the nervous system will allow the muscles to obtain a more healthy condition. All treated areas are rechecked to ensure the area is now clear and pain-free.
How Long Do the Effects of NRT Last?
NRT is so quick and effective that people often ask how long will this last.
At a minimum, the long-term effects of NRT in lengthening and relaxing muscles to bring you out of pain is at least equal to any traditional work such as neuromuscular, medical massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and/or activated and isolated stretching type of therapies.
Other trained NRT therapists and clients both report the results of NRT have often been observed to last longer and to have more profound effects.
Sometimes chronic conditions that never seem to make any progress start to clear.
NRT resets the muscles to a more optimal state, but there are negative factors under the control of a client’s lifestyle choices. Many people who suffer from pain will have a number of these factors. The more they bring to balance or make healthier choices in their lives, the longer before their muscles will need a reset.
Are You Tired of Hurting?
Want to experience an NRT session so you can feel better and go longer being pain-free? It’s certainly not like any massage you’ve experienced before.
