NMT is a very specialised 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. Based on neurological laws that explain how central nervous system initiates and maintains pain, the aim of an NMT treatment is to help relieve the pain and dysfunction by understanding and alleviating its cause. It is excellent for pain relief, the reduction of muscular spasm and restriction, elimination of trigger points which cause referred pain and for the restoration of postural alignment in the body.
