Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) was developed in Australia in the early 1990s and is a gentle technique that aims to rebalance muscular tension throughout the body.
The technique consists of making a series of rolling moves to selected soft tissues/muscles in the lumbar, thoracic and cervical regions and also in the upper and lower extremities as required. These special rolling moves have a calming effect on the tissue to which they are applied, as well as affecting other muscles and organs through spinal nerve pathways.
In this way NST aims to cause an integration of structure and viscera through stimulation of the central and peripheral autonomic nervous system, helping the body to rebalance itself. This in turn leads to the relief of pain and improved function, physiology and vitality.
NST can be used on many different conditions whether acute or chronic.
The rebalancing/unraveling process that occurs in each session can take from 5 minutes to 7 days to take full effect depending on the extent of compensation that has taken place in the body.
