NeuroKinetic Therapy (‘NKT’) is an integral part of a therapy appointment at Be Well Massage Therapy.

It is an innovative technique which utilises manual muscle testing to assess dysfunctions in the motor control centre of the brain that can result from injury, postural stress or poor movement patterns.

It cues the brain for new learning resulting in immediate correction of neuromuscular imbalances. NKT addresses pain at its source: the motor control centre of the brain.

The science of motor control theory states that the motor control center in the cerebellum stores all the coordination patterns of the body. It is directed by the limbic system and the cerebral cortex to not only create movement patterns (such as when a baby learns to stand), but also to create substitute movement patterns when we are injured.

We know from motor control theory that if the body fails to perform a specific function, the motor control center is open to new learning for approximately 30 to 60 seconds. How then can we communicate with the motor control center? Manual muscle testing allows us to find muscles that are weak or dysfunctional in relationship to other muscles.

NeuroKinetic Therapy is an excellent modality in rehabilitation and manual therapy because it not only identifies the cause of pain and dysfunction, but also corrects it very quickly and quite painlessly.

Please allow an additional 15 minutes for consultation on your first appointment.
