I often get asked “how is NIS different from Acupuncture and/or Neurofeedback therapy?” However, to answer this question let’s first look at how each modality works.
Acupuncture can be explained as “a technique for balancing the flow of energy — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, the belief is that your energy flow will re-balance.”
Neurofeedback /Biofeedback is described as “ the technique of making brain activity perceptible to the senses (as by recording brain waves with an electroencephalograph and presenting them visually or audibly) in order to consciously alter such activity.”
Let’s be clear…NIS is not a technique and does not use any machines, manipulation, drugs/ medications, special diets, or exercises.
NIS is a system of prioritized treatment protocols that are applied with the patient in a predetermined sequence. The essence of the NIS system, and what makes it very different from other modalities is that during an NIS treatment your practitioner uses a muscle test and runs through a series of checks (the NIS system). By contacting specific anatomical contact points, your practitioner is able to identify which signals between the neurology (brain) and physiology (body) are not getting through.
When a disconnected signal is identified we use a method called integration and ‘tap’ a very specific area of the cranium called the postcentral gyrus so that the brain is able to restore the signal. Once this happens and communication resumes, the neurolog (brain) is able to begin returning your physiology (body) back to its optimum function. So in turn the symptom/s you are experiencing will begin to resolve.
