Neurostructural Integration Technique (NST) offers effective, long lasting relief of pain and dysfunction. The treatment., NST (neuro-structural integration technique) was developed by Dr. Michael Nixon-Livy and results in rapid, effective pain relief combined with increased energy levels and overall better health. The treatment causes the patient to relax deeply. Relaxation is followed by a spontaneous automatic correction within the muscular, nervous, visceral and endocrine systems. The treatment may be used a number of times for its full effects to be achieved however 85% of those treated report full pain relief and resolution of dysfunction after as little as three treatments. NST employs a system of specialized and sequenced, soft tissue rolling stimulation called Pri-moves. Pri-moves or Proprioreceptive Rolling Impulse movements, are firstly applied to the Lumbar, Thoracic and Cervical spines after which further sequences are applied to the upper and lower extremities. Finally, additional sequences may be applied to the sacrum, coccyx, pelvis and TMJ as presenting symptoms dictate. In this sense NST utilizes a Core-Extremities-Core strategy to achieve a ‘thorough layered integration outcome’.
Between the years of 2004-2006 Dr. Michael Nixon-Livy teamed up with the Psicosomatico Institute, in Milan Italy, to run a series of research studies into the effectiveness of NST. The studies were headed by Psicosomatico’s Dr. Riccardo Scognamiglio and Dr. Michele Fortis and ultimately regulated by the Nth Italian Govt and the WHO – World Health organization.
The research was undertaken at the time as part of a broader search throughout Italy to identify complementary medical techniques that deserved the recognition and inclusion of and by the allopathic medical community.
Better health, better life
In the initial research phase 60 individuals suffering from back pain were treated using NST producing results so successful that Psicosomatico were awarded an invitation to conduct a final research phase where a new group of 39 more severe sufferers of chronic back pain, were each given five sessions of NST over a three month period.
The individuals many of whom had previously believed that their only solution lay in surgical intervention were later evaluated for their improvement in pain levels, range of motion, dependency on pain medication, the need for surgery and finally improvement in quality of life.
The astounding results of this final phase are summarized in this report for you to download in English or in Italian.
