“NRT-LogoNeural Reset Therapy® (NRT) is derived from the work of two great scientists, Sherrington and Pflüger, who investigated the nervous system more than a century ago to uncover its basic operating principles.
The Law of Reciprocal Inhibition and the Law of Symmetry have mostly remained in the laboratory until now. NRT is a practical, rapid and reliable way to apply these laws of physiology with an advanced form of manual therapy.
Muscles are controlled by the nervous system. Proper application of NRT resets the nervous system to release a muscle from excessive tension. With the release, the knots, pain and tightness are gone. Joint mobility and posture are improved.
Note that NRT is not an energetic method, but is based on sound physiological and neurological principles.”
“How NRT is different from the usual methods of massage, physical therapy or chiropractic:
No massaging of muscles or deep pressure required
Virtually no use of thumbs – very easy on the therapist’s hands
Done fully clothed without lotions or creams
No face-down positions, joint adjustments or stretching

Earl Gushiken “Thank you Melody for allowing me to work on you with this new therapy. I know it is different from the normal massage techniques and for some a little strange but works so fast and not painful right? Much Mahalo for your thoughtful comments😊.”
My journey of massage has allowed me to take care our keikis and kupunas. It has been a blessing to be able to give back to our island community. I will always strive to first administer the gentle techniques I have learned and gradually go to deeper techniques when needed. My intent is to improve each client’s issue by positioning the body in such a way so it can heal itself. Mahalo
This is now my go to therapy. Every valuable massage lesson/technique that I have learned so far will be used to augment NRT. I am so grateful for all the teachers/instructors who had taught me about massage and taking care of the client in the most effective manner.
Went up to Redmond, WA last month to attend this awesome Neural Reset Therapy (NRT-Lower Body) class. This is truly a paradigm shift in therapy. A definite change in my massage repertoire! Wow!! Helping people alleviate their pain without causing them pain. Helped my client with a sciatic issue this weekend with a pain level of 8 (of 10) and after the session, it went down to 2!!!
Excerpts from Eric Dalton’s article: http://erikdalton.com/gaga-over-heels/
The propulsive power thief
Many women love to wear high heels—and, I might add, many men like women in high heels. However, it’s true some women, like Lady Gaga, suffer for their vanities. In young women, this is accommodated by ankle and hip mobility and low-back stability. But many high-heel wearing women find as they age and their hip joints stiffen, shockwaves shoot through the lumbar spine and cause disc compression, ligamentous laxity and facet joint spurring.
Women should be cautious about wearing heels constantly, or over long periods of time. Clearly, the human foot was not designed to walk in stilettos—or cowboy boots, for that matter. The foot is specifically constructed to land in a heel-to-toe, rolling motion whereby the arch, ankle and knee absorb shock, or stored energy, and release the ground reaction force up the kinetic chain to counter-rotate the torso and pelvis.
As we saw in our demonstrations, the heeled shoe steals this propulsive power from tendons, ligaments and leg muscles. Not only do heels place the foot and leg under greater stress to achieve the demands of propulsion, but the borrowed power must be leeched from higher structures in the kinetic chain, including the knees, thigh muscles, hips and trunk. As a small army of anatomical reinforcements are recruited to rescue the handicapped fascial tissues, the body continues to lose energy to the ground.
Heels of any height set in motion a series of gait-negative consequences, making natural gait—meaning the barefoot form—impossible. Don’t let your clients be a slave to fashion; fix their feet and give them back the natural spring in their step.
Pa Ola Hawaiian Holistic Technique (Quick Fix – Lomi Lomi)
I received my Pa Ola Certification of Completion on November 21, 2016. This learning experience has been long (16 months with breaks) but well worth the time and effort. I learned this style from Kumu Enrick Ortiz who received his knowledge from Kumu Alva Andrews. This style has helped me in the Hawaiian Healing Arts and I look forward to learn more so I can better serve others.
