  • Kinesiology Techniques (Muscle Testing)

     In Applied Kinesiology & muscle response testing we test many muscles to check the integrity of the muscular system & skeletal system of the body. It is a common thing for people to exclaim “wow, that’s amazing” upon seeing the before and after application of muscle response testing.

    And even though I have been a student of Applied Kinesiology and muscle testing for over 20 years now I still continue to marvel at how valuable a tool it is. In fact, I am truly astonished that more doctors do not use muscle testing in their evaluations and treatment.

    I use a variety of muscle testing techniques, such as:  TBM, NET, NMT, CRA, NRT and GRT  (quantum neurology)

    Doctor Neilson has been certified by the International College of Applied Kinesiology

  • Active Release Techniques (ART)

    Active Release Techniques is a state of the art soft tissue massage system that heals by using over 500 specific treatment protocols to relieve overused muscles, alleviating joint, bone, and muscular discomfort.

    ART incorporates movement based massage techniques that treat problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and nerves. Many conditions can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART.

  • Graston Technique

Also known as Graston Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization. Using a specialized set of tools, Graston Technique is an extremely effective treatment for musculoskeletal pain.  It’s great for dealing with acute and especially chronic pain syndromes.  Pain from post surgical scars & adhesion’s as well as old sports injuries are the most common problems that we’re able to help with Graston Technique.

  • Neuro emotional technique (NET)

In NET, Manual Muscle Testing is used to access the physiology of the body, which includes the physiology of the emotional response. Muscles will usually test strong when a patient makes a statement with which he is congruent, where in contrast a muscle will usually test inhibited (weak) when the patient says a non-congruent statement. This dynamic has been scientifically validated by Monti, et. al. (Monti, Sinnott, Marchese, Kunkle and Greeson, Perceptual and Motor Skills, 1999, 88, 1019-1028).

  • Emotional Freedom technique (EFT)

EFT is a very powerful group of self-care  techniques that empower you  to Reduce and Eliminate accumulated Stress.
Done correctly, EFT will help to re-balance your energy system and nervous system allowing you to cope more easily with day to day stress.
EFT is best explained as an Emotional version of acupuncture but with ( NO Needles). It is performed by stimulating specific points on the Body’s Energy System, while focusing on the various triggers, aspects, emotions, thoughts, habits, events and somatic sensations, of the issues you are trying to resolve, such as: Physical Pain, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Cravings, Addictions….

People often refer to EFT as Tapping, however, in EFT,   Tapping is just one of the many components involved in this wonderful group of energy /bodywork techniques.

  • Neuro-Structural Integration Technique (NST)

The main aim of the Neuro-Structural Integration Technique is to remove pain and dysfunctional physiological and psychological conditions by restoring the structural integrity of the body. Essentially if every muscle in the body is in its correct position, i.e. homeostasis, then all of the other systems will be in homeostasis as a reciprocal consequence and health will abound.

NST employs a series of gentle but specific moves which are carried out in a predetermined and systematic manner. Initially the body responds to these moves by becoming extremely relaxed. This relaxation creates a temporary contextual shift in structural status, providing a window of opportunity for various spinal, somatic, cranial and autonomic reflexes to be activated, thereby bringing about a comprehensive re-setting of the whole body.

In addition to this whole body re-setting response which takes place, corrective energy flows can be directed into specific areas of the body where there is either pain or dysfunction.
