Dave, I'm going to cut and paste some info off of the internet for you on NST.
[The Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) is considered by many to be the world’s leading technique in structural and spinal therapy for lasting pain removal and rejuvenation!
NST is a remarkably effective professional bodywork technique, that when applied, initiates a process of natural auto-regulation to occur in the spinal column and consequently throughout the whole body.
The resultant effect of this is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy and an unmistakable sense of well being.
Typically the response to NST is most often profoundly effective, and more than seldom, miraculous.
NST is essentially a soft tissue osteopathic-style therapy, designed to remove pain, physiological dysfunction and even psychological imbalances, by restoring the structural integrity of the body.
Its application is suitable and safe for all ages, from new-borns to the elderly.
As its main aim is to reintegrate the body-mind complex as a whole, it is often called contextual healing, consequently regarding illnesses as symptoms of imbalance.
It is for this reason that there are no contraindications, essentially rendering the technique useful for a wide range of conditions from acute pain to chronic conditions.
As NST simply creates a context for the natural process of auto-regulation to occur, it can be therefore safely applied to any condition the human body is capable of manifesting. This is not to say that every condition will respond in the same way. Advanced degenerative conditions often require a multifaceted approach, of which the NST may form an exceedingly significant part.
A treatment comprises the application of sequences of specialised ‘moves’ to the body, carried out in a very specific and systematic manner. Characteristically, skilful soft tissue manipulation is applied to the lower and upper back, abdomen, neck, arms and legs.
There is no forceful manipulation, rather a cross-fibre manoeuvring of muscle, tendon, ligament or nerve, using varying pressure and incorporating resting periods to allow the body to respond. Treatment can be done either through clothing or directly on the skin.
Throughout the session the recipient experiences deep relaxation, essentially providing the body with a “window of opportunity” to comprehensively reorganise itself via the natural activation of various neural reflexes and important regulatory systems.
Substantial relief is frequently attained after the first session; however long term resolution is typically attained after the second or third session.
A session generally lasts 25-45 minutes, but can be as short as 5 minutes in certain circumstances.]
Verleen here: In 2006, my therapist worked on me for 2 hrs in the first session. The results were miraculous. I saw her for the next 3 weeks where she worked on me for one hour. Months later, I saw her for one other session to help with some pain that reoccurred. That was in 2007.
Is this what you were looking for Dave? Verleen
