Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a very specialized form of manual therapy. A therapist trained in NMT is educated in the physiology of the nervous system and its effect on the muscular and skeletal systems. The Neuromuscular Therapist also is educated in kinesiology and biomechanics.
Paul St. John is the founder of St. John Therapy. He had a vested interest in studying and researching soft tissue pain and musculoskeletal dysfunction. He had been seriously injured three times in his life. For four years after his last injury, he woke every day to headaches and unceasing pain. Thousands of dollars in medical expenses left him with no relief.
He began his research on pain and studied pain mechanisms and learned about the functioning of the nervous system and the neurological laws that govern the workings of the body. He found that most pain conditions stem from problems in the muscular system and the interrelationship between muscles, tendons, ligaments and fasciae and the role they play in causing pain.
He studied his own body and the pain patterns developed from his injuries. He became familiar with "receptor tonus technique" which prompted him to attend a course with Dr. Nimmo, D.C. He then began perfecting this technique and using his knowledge of the body into his work started teaching others how to treat his tissues and for the first time in four years, he was pain free. He began to integrate teachings of many other pioneers in the field of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. The result has been the development of the St. John Method of Neuromuscular Therapy.
Paul St. John and the therapists who worked under him would treat thousands of people in pain, changing their lives and the lives of their families forever.
By definition, Neuromuscular Therapy is the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons, and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system. In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function, and thought) to the body very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion, or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction. It is therefore necessary to stabilize low levels of neurological activity to maintain normal function and overall health.
Neuromuscular Therapy is used to address five elements that cause pain:
1. Ischemia: Lack of blood supply to soft tissues which causes them to become very sensitive to the touch.
2. Trigger Points: Highly irritated points in muscles which refer pain to other parts of the body. These points will inhibit proper blood flow which initiates a vicious cycle of pain and discomfort.
3. Nerve Compression or Entrapment: Pressure on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone.
4. Postural Distortion: Imbalance of the muscular system resulting from the movement of the body. Trauma, gravitational pressure, or psychological patterning causes the soft tissues to assume a weight-bearing function which can result in muscle contraction, body distortion, and pain.
5. Biomechanical Dysfunction: Imbalance of musculoskeletal system resulting in faulty movement patterns (i.e., poor lifting habits, bad mechanics in a golf swing or tennis stroke, computer keyboarding). Repetitive strain of certain soft tissues results in adapted movement patterns that become muscular "habits" and must be re-educated to function properly).
Since it is a whole body approach to treatment, Neuromuscular Therapy often creates secondary benefits. Once an individual is treated for back pain, for example, often their knee pain or headaches or bladder dysfunction or other problems are also addressed.
This therapy gently stimulates the body's natural healing abilities. The Cranial Sacral Technique refers to the link between the cranium or head and the sacrum, the bone at the base of your spine. It is made up of the soft tissue and bones of the head, the spine, and the pelvis. It addresses these areas as well as the membranes that surround them and the cerebrospinal fluid that encompasses the brain and spinal cord. It extends from the bones of the skull, face and mouth, which make up the cranium, down to the sacrum, or tailbone area.
Cranial Sacral therapy evolved from osteopathic medicine with its musculoskeletal emphasis. In the early 1990's, osteopathic physician William Sutherland concluded that skull bones are not firmly fixed but can move relative to each other. He developed a treatment called cranial osteo. In recent years, Dr. John Upledger further developed Sutherland's observations and incorporated them into a treatment now called craniosacral therapy.
A vital body rhythm is produced by the passage of spinal fluid within and around the central nervous system. This fluid carries a rich mixture of proteins, electrolytes, amino acids, and other essential nutrients for the brain and central nervous system. Since this vital system influences the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord, an imbalance or restriction in it could potentially cause any number of sensory, motor, or neurological disabilities.
When traumatic injuries, ligament and joint strains, or dysfunctions occur, they create blockages that create health problems. This prevents the skull, its encasing membranes, the spine, and the spinal cord from expanding and contracting naturally and results in disturbances to the movement of cerebrospinal fluid. Cranial Sacral therapy is used to re-establish the natural flow of spinal fluid.
Everyone is familiar with the body's cardiac rhythm and the rhythm of your breath. Yet there is a third important life-sustaining rhythm called the craniosacral rhythm that results from the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain and spine.
Cranial Sacral therapy is a gentle method of detection and correction that encourages your own natural healing mechanisms to dissipate the negative effects of stress on your central nervous system. You also benefit from better overall health and resistance to disease. As a core function, the therapy has the ability to treat a wide-range of disorders and physical disability, including spinal cord injury. It helps to strengthen your body's ability to take better care of you and helps alleviate a range of illness, pain, and dysfunction.
Practitioners of Cranial Sacral therapy use this rhythmic movement to identify restrictions both within the system and throughout the body's connective tissue. The therapist is skilled at feeling this subtle movement and areas of restriction in the skull, spine, sacrum, joints, and muscles. Areas of restriction lead to decrease in nerve transmission, flow of vital fluids, and then to symptoms of pain and discomfort. These areas of restriction lead to stresses of the system and contribute to dysfunction and poor health. The touch is extremely gentle and sensitive, so a treatment will be relaxing and enjoyable.
Outcomes of this therapy often include an increase in general health and energy, improvements in sleep quality, enhancement in organ functioning, and stress reduction. Some diagnoses that respond particularly well include fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and chronic headaches. Excellent therapy for pregnancies, infants, and children.
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point is an irritated area in muscle fibers that when compressed may elicit pain or twitching response. This condition occurs mostly in response to muscle tension (overuse) or nervous stress and sometimes is a result of poor circulation. When a muscle has tightness or trigger points, the range of motion is also compromised. Toxin build-up in the belly of the muscle can result in a trigger point as well.
Persons who perform repetitive tasks that are stressful, such as working at a computer, working over a desk, athletes, playing some musical intrustment, writing, weeding, painting, crafting, doing needlework, driving/sitting in a car for long hours, carrying a heavy purse or a briefcase, carrying a child on the arm, poor posture, all of these are some examples of muscle overload that lead to trigger points. Indirect causes may be arthritic joints, emotional distress, and some visceral diseases may also produce trigger points.
Trigger Point Therapy (also known as Myotherapy or Neuromuscular Therapy) is a method that applies concentrated finger pressure to trigger points to break cycles of spasm and pain. The trigger point model states that unexplained pain frequently radiates from these points of local tenderness to broader areas sometimes distant from the trigger point itself. The term "trigger point" was coined in 1942 by Dr. Janet Travell. Careful and thorough work can eliminate these trigger points creating real and lasting relief.
A therapy founded by Paul St. John to decrease compression on the cranial bones, open the sinuses and release tempro-mandibular joint (TMJ) tension. He did much research with dentists and found that it assisted the dental patients greatly in improvement of their condition.
The oral cavity provides a great window to body changes and reflects signals to deep injuries and dysfunctions. Tempro-mandibular joint is the most frequent mobile joint in man and may show dysfunction due to multiple, repetitive, minor traumas as in defective dental bite in young people or various other reasons. Also in whiplash injury after a few weeks of neglected therapy, patients may have TMJ dysfunction (local pain, headache, tinnitus, dizziness, difficulty swallowing, referred muscular-skeletal pain, and sleep disturbance. Cranial Decompression significiantly helps with these conditions.
This therapy gently addresses restrictions around the organs (viscera) and the connective tissue that surrounds them. Visceral Manipulation was developed by Jean-Pierre Barral, D.O., P.T., from France. Thanks to the dedicated work of Jean-Pierre Barral, a Physiotherapist and Osteopath, healthcare practitioners today can use the rhythmic motions of the visceral system as important therapeutic tools.
The membranes supporting the internal organs have multiple and extensive connections with the rest of the organs of support in the body. Jean-Pierre Barral demonstrated that manipulation of the visceral support system has profound and lasting effects on the organization of the rest of the body.
Barral's clinical work with the viscera led to his development of a form of manual therapy that focuses on the internal organs, their environment and the potential influence on many structural and physiological dysfunctions. It can promote optimal digestion and release tension in the viscera that inhibits function and can refer pain to distant sites.
This therapy is used to locate and solve problems throughout the body. It encourages your own natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of your organs, alleviates the negative effects of stress, enhances mobility of the musculoskeletal system through the connective tissue attachments, influences general metabolism, and improves overall health boosting resistance to disease.
Organs should have the necessary mobility and freedom to move in order for the body to work most efficiently and harmoniously. Each organ has its own rhythm or motility. When one organ is restricted and not mobile, undo stress is placed on other structures through the interconnectedness of the fascial system. This can potentially contribute to pain and dysfunction of the body as a whole or can relay through the interconnectedness to other body parts (i.e.: back, a knee, a shoulder, neck, or head).
The visceral system relies on the interconnected synchronicity between the motions of all the organs and structures of the body. At optimal health, this harmonious relationship remains stable despite the body's endless varieties of motion. But when one organ cannot move in harmony with its viscera due to abnormal tone, adhesions or displacement, it works against the body's other organs and muscular membranous, fascial and osseous structures. This disharmony creates fixed, abnormal points of tension that the body is forced to move around. And that chronic irritation, in turn, paves the way for disease and dysfunction.
This therapy relieves imbalances and restrictions in the interconnections between the motions of all the organs and structures of the body. When there are injuries in the viscera, we may experience a variety of symptoms, such as pain, nervousness, even mood changes and sleep disturbances. By addressing the problem, this therapy relieves these varied symptoms.
Visceral Manipulation is applied after assessing the mobility and motility of the involved organ(s) and how this relates to the presenting signs and symptoms. Specific but very gentle forces are applied to release the abnormal tensions and restrictions in and around the targeted organ(s). This potentially allows for functional improvement in the organ itself, the system the organ is a part of, as well as the structural integrity of the total body.
Due to the delicate and often highly reactive nature of the visceral tissues, gentle force precisely directed reaps the greatest results. As with other methods of manipulation that affect the body deeply, Visceral Manipulation works only to assist the forces already at work.
Visceral Manipulation is based on the specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera and their connective tissues. These gentle manipulations can potentially improve the functions of individual organs, the systems the organs function within, and the structural integrity of the entire body.
Visceral Manipulation relies on the palpation of normal and abnormal forces within the body. By using specific techniques, therapists can evaluate how abnormal forces interplay, overlap and affect the normal body forces at work. The goal is to help the body's normal forces remove abnormal effects, whatever their sources. Those effects can be global, encompassing many areas of bodily function.
A trained practitioner uses the rhythmic motions of the visceral system to evaluate normal activity and movement of "fluidity forces" within the internal body. Harmony and health exist when motion is free, when there is no constriction of movement, when flow internally is not diminished, and when structures move fluidly relative to neighboring structures.
This gentle hands-on therapy works with the body's internal membranes and organs or visceral system (the heart, liver, intestines and other internal organs) to locate and alleviate any abnormal points of tension throughout the body. It is used to locate and solve problems that develop due to constrictions in the viscera which can have impacts throughout the body's internal systems as well as external musculoskeletal systems.
Craniosacral Biodynamic Therapy (Breath of Life)
This therapy was developed by Dr. Sutherland and is a light-touch that works with the Central Nervous System (brain, spinal cord and cerebrospinal fluid), and those parts of the body which form its protective environment (cranium, spine, sacrum and other tissues and bones of the body).
The practitioner listens with skilled hands to the body's movement, health, rhythms, pulsations and patterns of congestion and resistance. It is a gentle therapy which is deeply relaxing. It assists the body's natural healing processes increasing physical vitality and well-being. It also aids in pain relief and encourages the nervous system, organs, and musculoskeletal system to balance and heal.
The body's tissues contract in response to physical and emotional stresses, such as injuries, sickness, birth process, or physical/emotional trauma. Sometimes, particularly when the shock is severe, tissues remain contracted. This can restrict the body's functioning and vitality and give rise to problems like chronic pain, migraines, digestive disorders, depression, and anxiety. Restrictions in the body show in the way craniosacral motion is expressed, allowing experienced practitioners to identify problem areas enabling the release of stress and tension, previously used to hold restrictions.
During the birth process, the various bones of the baby's skull naturally move in order to facilitate the birth. This can affect the bones overlapping each other and can create compression causing the head to become molded. However, it is often the case that due to the strong compressive forces the baby experiences during its birth, the bones of the skull may not fully release and return to their natural position. If these bones remain locked together, they can interfere with the natural growth and development of the skull and the brain.
At the core of the body the cerebrospinal fluid, (which bathes and cushions the brain and spinal cord), expresses a motion in a tide-like ebb and flow involving all the surrounding tissues and bones. All bones, organs, and other structures of the body have their own particular rhythms. These help to maintain and keep balance, throughout the entire body, distributing the healing and ordering properties of 'the breath of life' (a term used by Dr. William Garner Sutherland).
Life expresses itself as motion. At a deep level of our physiological functioning, all healthy, living tissues subtly "breathe" with the motion of life--a phenomenon that produces rhythmic impulses which can be palpated by sensitive hands. The presence of these subtle rhythms in the body was discovered by osteopath Dr. William Sutherland over 100 years ago, after he had a remarkable insight while examining the specialized articulations of cranial bones.
Contrary to popular belief, Dr. Sutherland realized that cranial sutures were, in fact, designed to express small degrees of motion. He undertook many years of research during which he demonstrated the existence of this motion and eventually concluded it is essentially produced by the body's inherent life force, which he referred to as the "Breath of Life."
Dr. Sutherland discovered that the motion of cranial bones he first discovered is closely connected to subtle movements that involve a network of interrelated tissues and fluids at the core of the body, including cerebrospinal fluid, the central nervous system, the membranes that surround the central nervous system, and the sacrum.
The Breath of Life produces a series of subtle rhythms that may be palpated in the body and which make up an integrated physiological system. At least three subtle rhythms have been identified in this "primary respiratory system", each having a different rate and producing rhythms within rhythms.
During the course of our lives our bodies become patterned, shaped, and conditioned according to how we are able to deal with any stresses or traumas. If stresses or traumas are overwhelming, they become locked in the body as sites of inertia--until such a time as we are able to access resources that allow them to be processed and released. These sites of inertia effect the natural rhythmical movements of the Breath of Life and so hinder the ability of our essential blueprint for health to manifest at a cellular level.
Common causes of inertia are physical injuries, emotional and psychological stresses, birth trauma, and toxicity. Due to an accumulatoin of these stresses, tissues can become imprinted with the memory of unresolved experiences and so act like video tape which may keep replaying whenever stimulated.
The emphasis in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is to help resolve the trapped forces that underlie and govern patterns of disease and fragmentation in both body and mind. This involves the practitioner "listening through the hands" to the body's subtle rhythms and any patterns of inertia or congestion. through the development of subtle palpatory skills, the practitioner can read the story of the body, identify places where issues are held, and then follow the natural priorities for healing as directed by the patient's own physiology. It is a very gentle and profoundly relaxing therapy and can be used to deal with all sorts of physical ailments.
Massage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians, and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems.
Massage and bodywork are defined as the application of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the human body. Massage is the application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body, generally intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation. Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing, and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Massage therapists typically use their hands and fingers for massage but may also use their forearms and elbows. Massage may range from light touch to deep pressure techniques Bodywork has various forms of touch therapies that may use manipulation, movement, and/or repatterning to affect structural changes to the body..
There are many different types of massage. Deep-tissue massage is one that I do where this technique uses slower, more forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries. I also use the Trigger Point massage which focuses on trigger points or sensitive areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.
Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. It has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, stiffness, anxiety, depression, and more. Massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.
On-Site Chair Massage
Seated Chair Massage is a 15-minute massage done in a specialized chair while fully dressed and using no oils. The massage therapist will address the shoulders, neck, head, back, arms, and hands. the techniques that the therapist will use involve compressions, tapotement (tapping), trigger-point, and shiatsu (Japanese finger pressure), etc.
A Study was done at the University of Miami -- 26 adults were given 15-minute chair massages two times per week for five weeks. On the first and last days of the study, they were monitored for EEG; and they performed math computations before and after the massage. They also completed job stress, anxiety, and depression inventories. The massage group was compared to a group of 24 adults who were asked to relax in a massage chair for the same period. It was found that both groups were more relaxed and also that there was enhanced alertness. The pattern was accompanied by increased speed and accuracy on math computations. Finally, anxiety, depression, and salivary cortisol levels were lower following the massage sessions; and at the end of the five-week period, job stress scores were lower.
Trends in Healing Arts --
"Americans are rediscovering the value of the ancient healing art of massage. Massage, once a luxury item for the elite, is becoming a necessity for people trying to cope with fast-paced lives."

Somato Emotional Release
This is a therapeutic process that facilitates the release of emotions that may be trapped in the body's soft tissue. Because it has been proven through research that soft tissue has cell memory, emotions for various reasons can either subconsciously or consciously exist in the traumatized and restricted tissue and will perpetuate the pain and dysfunction.
By releasing these emotional components, the tissue is better able to rebalance itself on a cellular, hormonal, structural, and energetic level to allow for a deeper healing. This technique is very useful for integrating the body, mind, and spirit along with assisting the client to heal from the residual effects of trauma.
Somato Emotional Release is done in conjunction with manual techniques and often includes non-invasive dialoguing (either verbal or nonverbal), visualization, and/or guided imagery. For each client, a safe, non-judgmental environment is established to allow for a gentle and respectful process of releasing suppressed emotions that may be inhibiting complete structural release.

Name and Birthdate Reports
The story of what your life is to be, what you were born to do, and the part you are to play on the stage of life, now and in the future, are written in the scroll and symbols of the name you chose when you were born. Every name chosen at birth contains a Divine Command and a Divine Promise of opportunity and personal privilege; but at the same time, it demands a promise from everyone to keep faith with the purpose written on the destiny scroll of the name. To know what your name means is a Spiritual Awakening.
To meet this destiny requirement is not always easy. At times it will not be what you desire as it may bring experiences you do not understand. Gradually, as you keep plugging along, these very experiences will tug, pull, and push you, until you finally swing out into the full tide of the accomplishment for which you were destined. The wonderful satisfaction which follows is that of fulfilling your soul's purpose in life. The name you chose at birth tells a story.
In a report, there are five end numbers which includes the Mental, Personality, Individuality, Vocational, and Ultimate Goal Number. The Mental, Personality, and Individuality numbers are the vibrations of the complete name. Your name is the tool box with which you came into this lifetime and the awareness of how to use these talents. Your birthdate which will be the Vocational Number is the new tool you are putting into the tool box. A new opportunity that adds a new experience to the previously learned lessons of life. The Ultimate Goal Number is the combination of the full name and also the birthdate.
This information in these reports gives us an opportunity to be more aware of ourselves, the talent we have, and the pathway we have chosen to use these abilities. Each letter of our alphabet is a vibratory influence, and the numbers from 1 through 9 can tell you all the experiences that life presents. The numbers do not limit or restrict us in any way. They are tools we have come in with to accomplish our mission. This is an important tool for self-knowledge and understanding.

PSYCH-K is like a user-friendly way in order to rewrite the software of your mind thereby chainging the printout of your mind!
Started in 1988, PSYCH-K includes processes and information that accelerates dramatically a person' s
growth. It has been the result of a "series of intuitive leaps" that were generated by years of research and many thousands of sessions with groups and individuals. The originator of PSYCH-K is Robert M. Williams, M.A., and the author of the book, PSYCH-K...The Missing Peace in your Life! He is a speaker that is recognized internationally, a talk show guest, and workshop leader.
PSYCH-K is an effective and a safe non-invasive way to change outdated beliefs and perceptions at the subconscious level of the mind. It is beyond positive thinking, affirmations, and will power.
