After reading the article on Touch and NeuroFasia Processing (NFP) and viewing the PowerPoint Presentation on how to do NFP, try out NFP. Here are the guidelines:
Treat yourself with NFP in one of 2 ways:
Method 1: (appox. 10 hours) Choose an organ to treat. If for example you have a cough you could choose your anterior lungs. Liver is always a good choice; we could all use detoxification of our liver. Put one hand on that organ and your second hand on the first process center and hold it for at least 20-30 minutes. Then keep you first hand on the chosen organ and put second hand on the next process center and hold, continue though all process centers. You may do this over a period of days or weeks. A chart can be printed to help you keep track.
Method 2: This more efficient and only takes one hour, but requires you have 6-10 volunteers. You lie on a table and allow your volunteers to put their hands on each process center. Therefore, all process centers are connected to all process centers at the same time. Hold for one hour. Your volunteers can reposition during the hour. This way allows you to treat all organs and process centers at the same time.
Treat someone else using NFP.
After you have experienced NFP either as the person being treated or as the person giving treatment, report on the following: *Must be at least 250 – 300 words; include 1-2 in-text citations and references.
-How did you feel about this assignment?
-If you found volunteers to either help in your treatment or to be treated by you, how did you find them?
-Why did you chose to do this assignment the way you did it?
-Please respond to at least 2 peers. I will be doing this after the submission of the discussion that you have done.
Peer responses must be 150-200 words each.
Manual therapies include, but are not limited to, chiropractic therapy, massage therapies, osteopathy, Cranial Sacral therapy, and techniques done by physical therapists and other practitioners; for example, Strain Counter Strain, Myofasia Release, Applied Kinesiology, Feldenkrais, Alexander Technique, Reflexology, and Neuro Fasia Processing.
Manual therapies manipulate bone and soft tissue to promote healing. Manipulation as a form of treatment is an ancient healing art that has been shared across time by various cultures.
Manipulation decreases pressure in the blood vessels and nerves and improves function of the manipulated area. Each type of manipulation emphasis a part of the body.
Manipulation is currently categorized into mechanical, neurological, and physiological. For example chiropractic care is mechanical and manipulates the spine to produce effects on the nervous system. Massage therapy is also mechanical and emphasizes muscle. Cranial Sacral is neurological and manipulates the head and spinal cord. Myofacial release, Neuro Fasia Processing (NFP), and other advanced manual therapies work on soft tissue and physiological function.
Osteopathic Doctors (DOs) are license doctors and can prescribe medication. DOs take a holistic and manipulation approach to treatment. They, like all manual therapists, support the fact that if the body is structurally sound it can and will accomplish healing.
