From the beginning of life, in utero through childhood and adult, N.O.T. recognizes that our nervous system is continuingly processing information thru the pre-programmed neural pathways of the primitive neonatal reflexes described here as survival systems of fight/flight, feeding, reproduction and immune. These systems are present in all living things allowing the continuation of life while adapting to any and all challenges in our environment.
Neural Organization Technique focuses on functional neurology of the Fight/Flight system by initially recalibrating sensory input devices (mechano-receptors) in our skin, muscles, tendons, ligament, joints and bones with a comprehensive understanding the role of the vestibular reflex systems. An example of aberration within the vestibular systems and associated cohort pathways is believed to be the key to understanding and successfully treating the condition of scoliosis.
The second survival system of Feeding is interpreted primarily through the coordinated jaw movements which direct digestive function.
The third survival system of Reproduction is interpreted through the endocrine system, recognizing that hormones represent the body’s non-electrical communication system.
The Immune system, an internal survival system, can be thought of as the glue that holds life together and is the most complex due to its dynamic homeostatic nature.
