P-DTR® www.DrPalomar.com was developed by orthopedic surgeon Dr. José Palomar. This work recognizes sensory receptors, and the way the body processes the information from these receptors. Using a comprehensive system of muscle testing and neural challenges, involved receptors can be located and normal function can be quickly restored. Most other therapeutic modalities deal with the “hardware” of the body, neglecting the fact that much of the pain and dysfunction we experience is often actually a problem with our “software”.
NeuroKinetic Therapy® www.Neurokinetictherapy.com known as Neuromuscular Reprogramming® (NMR®) in its previous incarnation, is an innovative and relatively new method of bodywork and muscle therapy which utilizes manual muscle testing to assess dysfunctions of the coordination system of the brain resulting from traumatic injury, over use, under use, repetitive stress, postural stress, etc. It cues the brain for new learning resulting in immediate correction of neuromuscular imbalances. NKT® works with the body’s organizational intelligence, addressing pain at its source: the motor control center of the brain.
