Neural Reset Therapy
NRT® was developed by Lawerence Woods as a form of massage therapy that uses the nervous system to reset (or relax) the muscles to their optimum tone. There is nothing more relieving than escaping from the nuisances of muscle pains. Who wouldn’t want that? After a hard day at work, all you want to do is relax and not worry about anything. You give yourself the needed relaxation and the time to do whatever you want to do after getting off from work.
Unfortunately, it is not always that case. People who work day and night to make ends meet will experience body pains, which are excruciating at times. And in many cases, the discomforts last many days that people suffer for longer periods.
Getting to Know NRT
But you don’t have to worry just yet. If you happen to experience exasperating muscular pains that don’t seem to go away, then you can undergo a Neural Reset Therapy. NRT is one of the best solutions to release all the stress in your body. It is an easy and fast way to get rid of muscle pains and body tightness. It eases the discomforts without applying too much pressure on the affected areas.
How Does NRT Work?
Our bodies have mechanoreceptors, which are nerve bundles that respond to forces like pressure, stretch, vibration. When these receptors detect a change in the body, they send a signal that goes to the spinal cord and the brain. But what does NRT have to do with the receptors?
When NRT is applied to the body, the therapist holds a particular position or does a certain movement to stimulate the receptors of that specific muscle. The therapist can also tap a muscle triggering the receptors to send a signal to the spinal cord. The message, then, goes through the spinal center that resets the nervous system, optimizing the muscles. Within a few seconds, the neural reset will make the muscular discomforts disappear.
Effects of NRT
The effects of NRT in relaxing your muscles can be similar to the long-term effects of traditional work like deep tissue or isolated stretches. Many clients and therapists have revealed that NRT effects can last longer and provide as great of results as other common therapies. People dealing with chronic conditions have reported that their pains seem to improve after undergoing NRT.
Benefits of NRT
Neural Reset Therapy has many benefits to offer. Because it resets the nervous system, NRT has the ability to combat muscular pains and improve a person’s overall well-being. The following body discomforts have shown to improve or disappear:
- Muscle spasms
- Neck stiffness and back pains
- Tennis and golf elbows
- Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) issues
- Muscle pain
- Hip Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Pain after trauma
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Sciatica (or similar) pain
Every NRT session, the therapists will do a thorough evaluation of the affected areas with pain, stiffness, or tightness. They will perform the therapy to treat dysfunctional muscles, then reset the nervous system to help the muscles achieve a healthier condition. After the process, the therapists will recheck the areas to ensure that everything is in much better shape.
