NST: the best way to release stress

It’s time to debunk the myth that the older generations are more prone to body pains. In fact, studies have shown that 84% of 18-24 year olds experienced back pain in the past year. Thanks to the frequent and long use of popular modern devices such as personal computers, tablets, and smartphones, young people are now three times more likely to suffer upper back and neck pains than the older generations.

The older folks generally have the experience and wisdom to recognise the need for treatment for painful symptoms. They know that they need therapy in order to improve function and relieve their body of pain. Athletes happen to share the insight. They acknowledge that they strain their bodies and subject themselves to extreme physical situations, so they know to recompense with bodywork and other treatment solutions. For the teenager who spent 16 hours a day switching among various gadgets to manipulate, the reality of abuse and the necessity of therapy may not so easily register.

As it happens, it’s not just the older people with their health issues, the athletes with their sports injuries, or the juvenile tech-heads with their screen obsession who can do with some pain relief. The human body may be a lean and mean machine, but it does suffer through wear and tear. Deterioration is inevitable. That’s just the way life is. Fortunately, there are ways to restore the body to prime condition.

What is bodyworks therapy?

If your body is due for some repair and maintenance, Ben Pianese of Massaggi can help you. The Massaggi clinics in London are prime destinations for those looking to relax their bodies, experience pain relief, or enhance their athletic performance. Owner and founder Ben Pianese is celebrated as a pioneer and visionary in massage therapy scene. He is consistently exploring ways to bring complementary massage, sports therapy, and other pertinent healing modalities to new heights. The following are some of the progressive massage treatment solutions offered at Massaggi:

Bowen Therapy – Named after Australian osteopath Tom Bowen, this is an alternative type of bodywork which involves a unique system of myofascial stimulation that brings forth long-term correction to the unusual patterns of muscular dysfunction causing various health issues.

Neuro Structural Integration Technique (NST) – This is a powerful multidimensional technique developed specifically to remove pain and other dysfunctional physiological conditions through the restoration of the body’s structural integrity.

Emmett Technique – This is a revolutionary method of recalibrating the brain based on a “to the point” muscle release technique. It’s extremely effective in resetting energetic structural balance causing pain relief, better posture and function, and treatment of debilitating back and shoulder injuries.

Full body optimisation and recalibration

Combining the elements of Bowen Therapy, NST, and Emmet Technique, Ben has come up with a new body re-set method that achieves full body optimisation and recalibration. It involves the re-integration of the musculoskeletal structure body component with stimulation of the nervous system pathway as well as the resetting of the Emmet Master Points. This treatment is exclusively available at the Massaggi clinics.

Neuro Structural Integration Technique (NST)

Back pain is one of the most common medical complaints today. While the pain can creep up and then go away on its own for some, it can also be an always-present, often debilitating sensation for many people all over the world. The pain can be so persistent that it can impact your quality of life: Your concentration and focus can go blurry, your appetite goes awry and you can have trouble sleeping because of the searing, throbbing ache in your back. Doctors also acknowledge that living with low back pain can have a negative impact on your emotional state.

What’s worse is that a bad back happens even to people living the healthiest of lifestyles. You can be diligent and vigilant in eating healthy, exercising regularly and striving to have a positive outlook, but these still won’t guarantee that you are exempt from suffering from an aching back at least once in your lifetime. Since back pain affects eight out of 10 people at some point in their lives, there is now a wide range of treatments available today. How will you know which one is the best solution for you?

NST: Be 100% pain-free in just one to five sessions

One technique that is increasingly gaining respect and recommendation from leading health institutions worldwide is the Neuro Structural Integration technique (NST). Developed by Dr. Michael Nixon-Livy in early 1990s, it is now being used by leading therapists, osteopaths, physiotherapists and chiropractors, including pioneer sports massage therapist Ben Pianese as part of their modes of healing frameworks.

The number of specialists using NST for back pain as well as neck pains and spinal conditions is growing, fuelled by the positive outcome experienced by 95 percent of people receiving the therapy, with 80 percent finding total resolution after just one to five sessions. What’s more, NST offers not only fast and effective method of pain relief, but it can also help heal conditions affecting other muscles and organs, enhance your energy levels, and generally improve your overall health.

When you undergo NST, the therapist will perform Proprioreceptive Rolling Impulse movements (Pri-moves) to your spine and then to your upper and lower extremities. Pri-moves is characterised by a system of soft tissue rolling stimulation that is applied in a specially designed sequence, customised according to your symptoms. The stimulation results in a multilayer effect: it benefits the immediate area while sedating and healing connecting tissues and organs, and eventually recalibrating the muscular system and resetting the entire body to its top form.

Due to its holistic approach, NST presents a total solution for the most serious body pains and complaints. It has been proven to offer relief from the following common conditions:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headaches
  • Respiratory problems
  • Digestive problems
  • Menstrual conditions
  • TMJ disorders
  • Sports injuries
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression

How your body heals naturally?

Many woes befall the human body as it progresses through life. People commonly treat these ailments with drugs, but such action is not without its harmful side effects. Those who prefer a more natural and non-invasive way to deal with their health issues can turn to alternative options such as massage therapy.

What is neuro structural integration technique (NST)?

One of the most in-demand bodywork therapies available right now is the Neuro Structural Integration Technique or NST. This treatment method taps into the inherent healing capabilities of the body, allowing it to undergo a natural restorative process. It mainly begins with the spinal column and then spreads out through the entire body, causing it to increase energy levels and acquire an overall sense of wellbeing and rejuvenation.

The treatment typically has the patient relaxing on a couch while the therapist applies gentle pressure and manipulation onto the soft tissues of areas such as the back, abdomen, arms, legs, and neck. With sessions normally lasting between 30 to 45 minutes, patients can immediately detect substantial relief upon the first session, although long-term correction is usually attained after the succeeding sessions. Chronic cases and serious degenerative conditions generally call for regular maintenance using this approach.
