Why Neurosomatic Therapy?

What is Neurosomatic Therapy?

Neurosomatic Therapy (NST) is an integrative form of manual therapy that identifies and corrects structural and biomechanical patterns in the body that cause chronic pain. Traditionally, chronic pain is treated in a way that addresses only one aspect of the condition. Whether it be massage therapy, physical therapy, or medicinal pain management, these methods fail to fully address the soft tissue causes of pain. NST, in contrast, uses careful analysis of dysfunctional postural and movement patterns to create a comprehensive therapy program that includes the five stages of rehabilitation:

  • Eliminating Muscle Spasm
  • Restoring Flexibility
  • Restoring Proper Biomechanics
  • Increasing Muscle Strength
  • Increasing Muscular Endurance

The purpose of NST is to not only to eliminate the pain, but educate the patient on ways to prevent recurrence of the injury.

History & Influences of Neurosomatic Therapy

Neurosomatic Therapy was developed in response to a void in traditional health care where too many pain symptoms have no known cause. Combining Massage Therapy, Posturology, and Corrective Exercise to study the relationship between the bodies soft tissues, the skeletal system and the nervous system, NST founder Paul St. John , has discovered a way to bring lasting pain relief to patients. All of the techniques used in NST are non-surgical, non-invasive, and non-chiropractic. The techniques are centered around balancing the body structurally by addressing the largest of the body’s systems, the muscular system.

Real Pain Relief for Thousands of Patients

By restoring proper alignment and biomechanics in the body, NST alleviates pain and can positively affect a variety of physiological conditions. One of the neurological laws that is the basis for Neurosomatic Therapy is Wolff’s law. Simply stated, Wolff’s law states “form follows function and function follows form.” Thus, a distortion in the form of the body is often correlated to improper function of the body. For example, a slouching posture can decrease digestive function or a trigger point into the ear can affect hearing or balance. When proper structure is restored to the body, the accompanying physiological problems are often alleviated. Physicians, Patients, and Therapists all agree that this form of therapy succeeds where other forms of rehabilitation and pain treatment fail.

Do you guys know what you’ve given me? I am so busy! In the last year I have done more solid good for people in my community than I did in the previous 5 years I spent as an active EMT. I’m serious. Shocked and regularly awed and dead serious. So, thank you! I owe my thanks to Randy, Paul, Kevin, and Ramona and your folks and everyone there. I really REALLY love my job. 🙂 Thank you!

The teachers and assistants were excellent. As a long time student of many subjects revolving around anatomy, I was in awe of the incredible depth of their knowledge. Each complemented the other’s strengths extremely well, making for an impressive team of caring and intelligent educators.

Extended classes are the way to go. It makes it cohesive, so one can see how the parts fit together. I thought the course was fantastic—I simply loved it. I love learning, but this course went far beyond that. I found it truly inspiring to see what is possible.
