Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) is considered by many to be the world’s leading technique in structural and spinal therapy for lasting pain removal and rejuvenation. NST is a remarkably effective professional bodywork technique that, when applied, initiates a process of natural auto-regulation in the muscles and ligaments supporting the structure of the central nervous system and consequently has a positive effect throughout the body.
NST is an extremely powerful multidimensional technique, which has been specifically developed for the ongoing dynamic integration of the structure and viscera via stimulation, at different points in the treatment, of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems. The main objective is to remove pain and dysfunctional physiological conditions by restoring the structural integrity of the body.
In essence NST provides the body with an opportunity to reintegrate on many levels and thus return to and maintain normal homeostatic limits on a daily basis. The resultant effect of this is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy and an unmistakable sense of well-being.
Neurostructural Integration Technique (which, for some reason is always referred to by the initials NST) was developed by Michael Nixon-Livy as an off-shoot of Bowen Therapy. Nixon-Livy conducted studies with what he calls ‘Hard Cases’, ie people with ongoing symptoms that have not been responsive to other therapies. In his case studies, Michael has noted that 85% of clients are symptom free after 2 to 3 sessions of NST.
