030816 "What is NeuroKinetic Therapy"

In the 1980's David Weinstock moved around Central and South America after finishing Pre-Med at John Hopkins University. What he learned and adapted was a Natural Therapeutic way of pain relief and muscle testing to see where imbalances lie in each person. NKT is a series of muscle tests that can be administered to help the brain 'reset' itself after there has been some sort of injury or muscle imbalance. Because our brains are creatures of habit and our balance, coordination and strength are linked to this guy mass; sometimes it can misfire muscles and movement patterns that can inhibit us from optimal health.

Muscles that shut down after injury make other muscles work extra hard to compensate and keep the body upright. This system helps to diagnose and treat that imbalance.

As I have found in my many years of training athletes, even though you may feel weakness or sometimes pain in a certain area it does not necessarily mean there is an injury. It could just be muscle misfiring! This is why I am particularly precise about how you move to ensure we get optimal muscle engagement for each movement!

If you suffer from ;

  1. Shoulder Pain
  2. Low back pain
  3. Plantar Faciitis
  4. Tendonitis
  5. Muscle Strain

.... then Neurokinetic Therapy might be what you are interested in. Please read up on the treatment and tests HEREΒ In the mean time, if you have injury or are concerned about muscle imbalance please grab me and we can devise a plan to help you get back on track through my own knowledge.
