NeuroMuscular Reprogramming (NMR) is an efficient bodywork protocol that identifies and corrects coordination dysfunctions resulting from injury and trauma. Often the body over-corrects and creates repetitive strain from ergonomically inefficient movement patterns. This style of treatment utilizes muscle testing to quickly identify inconsistencies in our movement patterns. Clients can expect significant long-term relief from chronic pain.
