What is NST?

The Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) is a dynamic and skillful professional bodywork technique, which alerts the body‘s innate healing wisdom to be activated. The effect of this is a comprehensive reorganization of the musculature of the body characterized by a lasting relief from pain and dysfunction plus an increase in energy levels. The response is most often profoundly effective and sometimes miraculous.

NST is essentially a soft tissue therapy designed to release muscles and fascia in a manner which is safe for all ages, from newborns to the elderly. It is often called ‘contextual healing‘ as its main aim is to reintegrate the body as a whole. It is for this reason that there are no major contraindications, essentially rendering the technique useful for a wide range of conditions from acute pain to chronic conditions.

A treatment comprises the application of sequences of specialized ‘moves‘ on the body, carried out in a very specific and systematic manner. There is no forceful manipulation, rather a cross-fiber maneuvering 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 reorganize itself via the natural activation of various neural reflexes.
Substantial relief is frequently attained after the first session, however long term resolution is generally attained after the second or third session. Anywhere from 10-45 minutes is required to complete a session depending on presenting symptoms. It is common for individuals receiving the work to experience a wide range of responses such as shifting body aches, hot and cold flushes, sweating and at times emotional releases. These are regarded as a positive sign that the individual is returning to a better state of well-being.

The real secret as to why NST works is because of its underpinning philosophy. Put simply, the philosophy is, that the body is a self-regulating bioenergetic and biomechanical phenomena which will continue to regulate itself for as long as it has the reserve energy necessary to sustain life, by the ongoing process of biological adaptation.

The following list of symptoms frequently ‘disappear’ in response to an NST session:

  • Cranial and Temporomandibular Joint (T.M.J.) problems
  • Neck problems including whiplash
  • Head injuries and headaches including migraines
    Back problems both lumbar and thoracic
  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand
  • Leg problems including hamstrings, knee and ankles
  • Sacral, coccyx and pelvic problems
  • Sciatic, neuralgia and neuritis
  • Accident and sporting injuries (acute or chronic)
  • Musculoskeletal disorders, rheumatism, arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Digestive, intestinal and urinary problems
  • Respiratory problems including asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis
  • Menstrual, reproductive and menopausal disorders
  • Baby colic, gastric reflux and feeding problems
  • Oral, auditory and visual problems
  • Acute & chronic fatigue and sleep disorders
  • Stress conditions, emotional depression and some learning/ADHD difficulties

Typically results are extremely good requiring just a few sessions to bring about long term stability. Current international statistics consistently verify that in general clinical practice 80-85% of clients require only 2-3 NST sessions to achieve long term stability from their condition. Approximately 10-15% of clients require 4-6 sessions to achieve long term stability, while 5% typically suffering from advanced degenerative conditions, generally require ongoing sessional work.
