How does this work? In your body, there are specialized nerve bundles called mechanoreceptors. The receptors respond to pressure, velocity, vibration, stretch, and other forces. When receptors detect a change, a signal is sent to the spinal cord and then relayed to the brain. With NRT, the therapist briefly stimulates the receptors embedded in the selected muscle by asking for a position to be held or for a movement in a particular direction. Or the therapist taps on a muscle in such a way as to cause receptors to send a special message to the spinal cord. That new message goes through the spinal integrating center which will reset the nervous system so the muscle is optimized neurologically. With the reset, the muscular pain and tightness disappear within seconds. See our informational videos Who can benefit from NRT? Common conditions that improve or disappear with NRT: Neck & back pain Muscle spasms Headaches, especially migraines Carpel tunnel syndrome TMJ syndrome Tennis & golf elbow Pain from unknown causes Pain persisting long after the original trauma, including post-surgical pain Rotator cuff injury Sciatica-like pain Hip pain During each session, the therapist thoroughly checks each area of your body to locate any painful or tight places. Resets are performed for any dysfunctional muscles. The resets allow the muscles to return to a healthy state.How long do the effects of NRT last?NRT is so quick and effective that people often ask how long will this last. At a minimum, the long-term effects of NRT in lengthening and relaxing muscles to bring them out of pain is at least equal to any traditional work such as neuromuscular/medical massage/ deep tissue/myofascial release/activated isolated stretching type of therapies. Therapists and clients report that the results of NRT have often been observed to last longer and to have more profound effects. Sometimes chronic conditions that never seem to make any progress start to clear. NRT resets the muscles to a more optimal state, but there are negative factors under the control of a client’s lifestyle choices. Many people who suffer from pain will have a number of these factors. The more they bring to balance or make healthier choices in their lives, the longer the resets will last.Virgina received her certification in NRT in December of 2018 with a designation of CNRT-M.
