Neural Organisation Techniques
Neural Organization Technique (N.O.T.) is a holistic physical and energetic medicine modality, founded 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 neuro-biochemical 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 utilizing a vast array of information gathering sensors in our skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Receptor based therapies allow the practitioner to modulate the sensory input to our Central Nervous System (CNS) to facilitate a wanted outcome/response.
