Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a specialised physical and manual therapy
 


NeuroKinetic Therapy

Refined bodywork to identify the root cause of pain



Remedial Therapy

Combining various bodywork modalities to help you take back control
 


Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) is a developmental kinesiology approach





NeuroKinetic Therapy ®





NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) is an assessment and rehabilitative tool which identifies incorrect movement patterns.The brain learns through failure, therefore using specific manual muscle testing, the brain identifies faulty movement patterns.

Efficient movement requires a dynamic and stable foundation. If one component of the human movement is not functioning well, patterns of dysfunction will develop and initiate the injury cycle. The motor control center in the cerebellum stores all the coordination patterns of the body.
 


 



When a muscle is inhibited through injury, the motor control center will find a substitute muscle to perform the function. If this pattern is allowed to remain in the motor control center, dysfunction and pain will follow.
This 'substitute' muscle may then feel tight and painful i.e. hamstrings. Releasing the hamstrings would only provide temporary relief as it still has to perform the initial function.
Using neurokinetic therapy, the practitioner would be able to find what the hamstrings are compensating for and activating them prior to releasing the hamstring. This re-distributes the work, improves movement and reduces pain.

Some benefits of NKT include:
Enhanced athletic performance.
Improved muscle coordination.
Achieve faster, longer lasting results than many methods.
Eliminates enduring patterns of dysfunction from old injuries.
Coupled with corrective exercises for maximum benefit.
