When you step into my office you are a unique and highly valued client with your very own pain, movement patterns, and postural habits. I not only want to do my best to understand your body and treat it accordingly, I want to work with you to enhance your awareness of and relationship to your own body. No matter who you are, you deserve a bodyworker who is as dedicated to relieving your pain as you are. You deserve Empower Massage Therapy!
Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT), is a corrective movement system developed by David Weinstock. NKT uses manual muscle testing to find the source of pain. As one of my clients says, NKT is like “detective work”, in which I uncover compensation patterns in the body. It is not a massage session, but rather an assessment session in which the practitioner tests muscles for functional strength. When a muscle has no functional strength, it is not contributing to movement, and so the body relies on other muscles to pick up the slack. One muscle may begin to overwork while another becomes inhibited—resulting in pain, tightness, and restricted movement. We repattern these dysfunctional muscle relationships through manual release and corrective movements.
