NeuroKinetic Therapy® (NKT) is a sophisticated assessment and treatment modality that addresses the causes of pain—not just the symptoms—at their root in the motor control center within the cerebellum.
In this 5-day workshop, cocreator of the NeuroKinetic Therapy bodywork system David Weinstock and NeuroKinetic Therapy practitioner and instructor Jory Serota share tools and techniques for professionals working in the field of rehabilitative therapy. You examine the basics of motor control theory and how to use manual muscle testing to assess muscle functionality. Through hands-on practice, you learn how to recognize compensation patterns and correct them. You also explore how exercise and yoga can be used to correct motor control dysfunctions.
This workshop is recommended for massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, personal trainers, yoga and Pilates teachers, and others working with clients seeking greater comfort, mobility, and independence.
