  • 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 25 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, NIS, CRA, NRT and GRT  (quantum neurology)

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

  • Soft Tissue Techniques

    For best results you must treat the MUSCLES too!!!  I use many techniques to address soft-tissue dysfunction.  With muscle testing and palpation we can quickly identify low tone & high tone dysfunctional muscles.  Some of the techniques I use to address muscle problems include:  Pin & Stretch,  Spindle Cell & Golgi Reset, Neural Reset Therapy, Neuro Kinetic Therapy & Dermal Traction Method to name a few.

  • BrainLink technique

BrainLink is my own creative combination of multiple techniques I have incorporated over the years.  Techniques such as:  Applied Kinesiology,  Total Body Modification, Craniobiotics,  Neurologic Integration Systems, Sedona Method, Emotion Code and others.

  • Neuro emotional technique (NET)

I have been a student of NET since 1995.  It’s a wonderful chiropractic technique that helps balance the stress response.  Although it does involve “emotions” it is not counseling and it is not a form of “talk therapy” nor does it replace such care.  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).

  • Mind Body Techniques

Most of us are familiar with the “fight or flight” response to stress.  This is an automatic reflex that our sympathetic nervous system uses to adapt to what may be perceived as a threat.  Unfortunately, in our modern world the nervous system is constantly perceiving threats.  To address this I have developed my own method that I call the Stress Response Technique.

  • Neuro-Structural Integration Technique (NST)

This is an extremely gentle form of body work that is especially helpful when recovering from injuries such as Motor Vehicle Accidents.  The main aim of the Neuro-Structural Integration Technique is to remove pain and dysfunctional physiological conditions by restoring the structural integrity of the body. Essentially if every muscle in the body is in its correct position & tone, 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.
