Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST)

The Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) is the world's leading technique in structural and spinal therapy for lasting pain relief and rejuvenation!

NST is a remarkably effective professional bodywork technique, that initiates a process of natural auto-regulation to occur in the spinal column and consequently throughout the whole body.

The resulting effect is a rapid elimination or reduction of symptoms, followed by an increase in energy and an unmistakable sense of well-being.

  


The response to NST is most often profound and effective, and is the quickest way I've found to totally balance the body, especially when combined with Cranio-Sacral Therapy. An NST session lasts from 5-45 minutes, depending on the individual and their symptoms. Characteristically, skillful soft tissue manipulation is applied to the lower and upper back, abdomen, neck, arma and legs.

NST simply allows for the natural process of auto-regulation to occur. It can be used safely to treat an extensive range of conditions, for children, the elderly and every age group in between.


Here is a 16 minute video which demonstrates the beginning segments on an NST session:

While substantial relief is frequently experienced after the first session, long term resolution is generally attained after the second or third session.  Certain chronic or degenerative conditions may benefit from further or ongoing attention.  It is typical for the individual receiving NST to at times experience corrective responses as the body returns to a state of balance.  These may include shifting body sensations, toxic and/or emotional releases, all of which should be considered very therapeutically valuable.

Further Reading: The History of NST (if you are interested)

Originating from the amazing life's work of the Australian bodywork and osteopathic genius, Tom Bowen, 1916 -1982, NST is a powerful and accurate interpretation of his Advanced Principles, completely unique in its construction, style and philosophy.

Bowen, who was renowned for his ongoing and exceptional record of working with some 13,000 individuals per year, had an almost 100% success rate.

Developed between 1991 and 1995 by world renowned health practitioner, teacher and lecturer, Michael J. Nixon-Livy from Melbourne, Australia,  NST has been specifically crafted to provide the same dependable level of health care, that Bowen himself was able to provide.

As such, NST has earned itself the reputation as being the world's leader in Bowen-derived therapies, and is a powerful living tribute and legacy to the work of Tom Bowen, and the thousands of skilled practitioners who continue this most valuable professional healing art.
