Neuromuscular Reintegration Therapy (NMRT)

NMRT Reintegrates the Body and the Mind, Reestablishing Communication and Function. NMRT is a Manual Therapy that follows the theory of Thomas Bowen, which states that less is more. NMRT is a clothed technique that is designed to reestablish balance in the body. Communication about proper function and balance from your body to your brain is essential, and sometimes due to physical or emotional trauma, the body adapts to movement and physiological patterns that cause more harm than good. Due to adaptive shifts in the body the brain's set point changes. That is to say, the nervous system no longer perceives the problem as a problem. Although this new state is not optimum, the brain and sensory organs will no longer try to return back to its most balanced state.

An NMRT treatment is performed with the patient fully clothed. A series of small and specifically placed cross-fiber movements are executed over muscles, tendons and ligaments in a specific sequence. The practitioner will pause between each series of movements to allow for communication between the patient's sensory organs and the nervous system. This gives the body time to establish new patterns and increase tissue viscosity. This therapy is a non-force technique and is generally quite comfortable for the patient.
