Neural Organization Technique (N.O.T.) is a holistic physical and energetic medicine modality, based in Applied Kinesiology, which deals with our basic survival systems of fight/flight, feeding/immune and reproduction. Our health depends on how well these systems are maintained and their ability to receive, process and respond to sensory information in a constantly changing environment of both internal and external stressors. Treatment utilizes a sensory receptor-based therapy involving primarily skin surface reflexes designed to normalize nervous system function. Neural Organization Technique holds as its premise that everything that happens to us on a physical, chemical, or emotional level must be processed through one or more of the three basic survival systems. Our reaction to these stimuli will not be random but one of a chain reaction of neurobiochemical events designed to compensate and maximize our survivability. Our nervous system will accomplish and navigate this compensatory state by constantly monitoring both the internal and external environment. Much of the sensory input is processed subconscious utilizing a vast array of information gathering sensors in our skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments called mechano-receptors (proprioceptors).
Neural Organization Technique not only works on remodulating the sensory input to our CNS, it recalibrates the sensory receptor itself so that it will feed back the correct information. This is what makes N.O.T. special and swift in its application and outcome.
When we suffer pain, fatigue, a headache etc., our body utilizes its innate knowledge to compensate for this altered internal environment allowing us to maintain optimal survivability. Scoliosis is a classic example where the spine and adjacent musculature must compensate for an aberrant neurological (walking) gait. Our goal is to identify these compensatory states and remove the ones that are no longer needed. This approach has a benefit in that treatment is often swift and efficient because rehabilitation is often unnecessary. Our nervous system will know what to do when restored back to its original operating parameters. To be a recognised NOT practitioner you are required to repeat all 4 modules, and to complete the Advanced NOT course. This is highly recommended, but not compulsory.
