Want to learn something really new and completely different? Want to get better results in less time without causing your clients pain and with no strain on your body? If you are thinking, “Yes” then Neural Reset Therapy ® (NRT) is for you!

Neural Reset Therapy ® will teach you an ingenious way of how to use the nervous system to release the muscles. In this Lower Body Class, you will learn how to apply established neurological/physiological laws to quickly banish the pain and tightness found in dysfunctional muscle tissue. Step into the 21st century and practice manual therapy that yields rapid and reliable results that will please your clients and greatly reduce the wear and tear on your body.

The Neural Reset Therapy ® curriculum was created to allow the student a choice to be able to start with either the Upper Body or the Lower Body class. The core material for the student to grasp and understand the principles of how Neural Reset Therapy ® works with the nervous system, the different ways of applying the techniques for effective treatment, contraindications, and other basic material is the same for each live course. There is much information presented in the core material which constitutes about 20% of the course. Even though all of the information is included in the comprehensive course manuals, students tell us how beneficial it is to hear and see the information again. The anatomy, zone maps, sequence flow and techniques are unique for each course.

In NRT® we divide the body at the costal cartilage and T-12/L-1. The Lower Body course includes: legs, thighs, hips, lumbar region (low back), and abdomen – including ilio-psoas.

Seem to good to be true? Here is what therapists like you, who have taken Neural Reset Therapy ® courses have to say:

“Love the work – it will allow me to be so much more effective and to safeguard my own body, so I can continue the work I love to do for many years!”

Allyson Murray, LMBT, Williamsburg, VA
I used the cervical techniques last night with a client with chronic and difficult neck issues and, for the first time ever, felt the muscles melt under my touch. A-MAZ-ing. Thanks Lawrence!

Lea Satorra, LMBT, Apex, NC

These techniques will improve everyone’s practice.

Charles T. Brown – Albuquerque, NM (Former C0-Director of the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics, 30+ year veteran therapists)

“This was a great course! Thank you so much! This was a really powerful and exciting workshop. The material presented works quickly and efficiently. It was literally amazing to feel the tissue change that quickly. I am going home confident in my understanding and will put this to work immediately. This course has helped me understand the body of a whole new way. It has also given me understanding of how many other therapies work and how they can be effectively combined with NRT.”

Linda Headquist, LMT, Fairfield, IA

Teaching materials: Each student will receive a 90 page manual complete with detailed information on all of the topics taught in the class and each technique, accompanied by easy to see photographs. In addition, a richly illustrated power point presentation will cover the anatomy and theory for the course.

This course will cover:

  • The origins and development of NRT – how it came to be and the six powerful insights that allowed this approach to become a powerful tool for any hands on therapist.
  • Understanding how NRT works – develop a deeper understanding about the importance of mechanoreceptors in any type of manual therapy.
