"Our goal is not to strengthen muscles, but to allow them
What is NeuroSoma®?
NeuroSoma® is a very delicate, yet remarkably powerful fingertip massage technique that relaxes hard, overly-contracted muscle tissue by stimulating small feedback nerves located within
muscle spindle sensory receptors. Unlike regular massage therapy, NeuroSoma® specifically addresses hypertonic muscle spasm, which is different than ordinary tension in that it is produced by a malfunction of the nervous system. With a precise and limited pressure, the NeuroSoma® myotherapist stimulates specialized feedback nerves in muscle spindles.
This extremely sophisticated and effective fingertip stimulation corrects distorted nerve feedback to the cerebellum. The newly-functioning feedback loops are then able to inform the cerebellum of the contracted condition of the muscle, allowing the brain to correctly “see” the contraction in which it has been holding the muscle, and consequently to relax the muscle. This cutting edge bodywork actually enables the body to heal itself. The NeuroSoma® myotherapist stimulates these feedback nerve beds using a limited pressure not deep enough to activate the stretch-reflex mechanism, also originating in the muscle spindles.
The process of softening knotted, tight muscles is cumulative. At such time as optimum results are achieved (the core spasms are reached and the muscle is healthy throughout), maintenance becomes the objective. This therapy is not in itself a cure, since its purpose is to activate the body’s own healing power. It generates other changes, such as increased circulation, joint health, and nerve repair, and reduced histamine production. The degree and speed of change depend on the extent and age of the disturbance, the amount of recuperative power released by each session, and the pace at which your own nervous system operates, which varies from person to person.
NeuroSoma® is based on hard science and 30 years of research of human physiology and anatomy. In short, this leading-edge therapy to heal muscle spasm does not try to mash the muscle into submission; rather it operates in the nervous system; it stimulates feedback nerves, reinstates feedback loops from the muscle to the cerebellum, and it is then the brain that relaxes the muscle.
“Tamsin, Amazing! Amazing! Driving is once again enjoyable. I am pain free. I still need some minor tweaks from Dr. Joe, but all I can say is THANK GOD for Griner, you and Joe!!!! I don't know what I would have done without you. Life is worth living again! I can't wait to meet you and talk about the future of NeuroSoma work. I am sure that Griner and you and all those that you have taught will be heralded in the future and for generations to come as complete health care saints, pioneers and revolutionaries. You should be given the highest form of recognition by every humanitarian organization on the planet for your willingness to understand, practice, and promote this work. Just amazing and truly life altering.”
