Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy

What is Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy

Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy was developed by Eastern medicine over 5,000 years ago. The procedure is designed to help improve the immune system, increase the energy level, and heal the body naturally without drugs and surgery. The process uses a number of techniques for treatment. They use Meridian and Energy Stress Assessment, Allergy Elimination Technique, Low-Level Light Therapy, nutrition therapy, herbal products, and homeopathic solutions.

Neurological Stress Reduction at Townsend Wellness Center is used to treat stress, headaches, sinus conditions, digestive disorders, allergies, skin conditions, and other conditions.

The Meridian and Energy Stress Assessment

The process starts out with the patient being hooked up to a device that measures a person's stress reactions. It is similar to a lie detector as they are hooked up using sensors and asked a series of question. Their stress levels are measured by the device during that time. The sensors are placed on the middle finger and the skin allows the device to measure and record the differences in the responses. It is an automated and computerized system or method. It takes about five minutes and is non-invasive and pain-free.

This test also examines your skin's reaction to stress and the causes. It looks to see if chemicals, food and allergens are the cause. It seeks to find the triggers in the body and eliminate them. The chiropractor may suggest supplements or changes in diet.

Low-Level Light Therapy

Low-level light therapy is another part of the treatment. It combines acupuncture, using cold lasers, and electrical stimulation to heal the body naturally. It delivers energy to damaged cells and heals them. It is used to treat stress and pain in all part of the body. Light is introduced along the body's acupuncture points and promotes well-being and relaxation. It produces positive changes in the body similar to when you sit out in the sun for a short period of time. It improves circulation, reduces inflammation, and helps with cell growth.

How Many Visits Are Needed?

After your assessment, the chiropractor will decide based on your condition and how many sessions of neurological stress reduction therapy you will need. For mild cases, seven to ten visits are normal and in more severe cases about 25.   Each session will last 20 minutes or less depending on the therapies used. The doctor may suggest supplement, herbs, changes in your diet, and exercises as part of the treatment. This therapy is safe for children and adults.
