NMT is an information medical protocol
I consider NMT to be the best of the breed of "energetic" or more accurately, "informational medical" protocols. I use NMT as a complementary treatment system with my other modalities, such as herbs, diet or acupuncture, although for some clients I use NMT exclusively (either they have other practitioners which do something else or have found that other techniques are too disruptive for their systems.)
NMT can be used by itself or complementary to other treatment modalities
Because of my Chinese medical training I see the various modalities that I use as Yin or Yang and that both are needed in this world of duality. For instance using diet or herbs to treat the body-mind is Yin in comparison with using a Yang treatment like NMT which uses thoughts and information and the energies and thought forms that are brought forth by them. The Yin and Yang treatments are not mutually exclusive, nor merely a choice of treatment style. There must be intelligence guiding the physical healing process. This intelligence can be scientific or the innate intelligence of the body-mind. My feeling has been since my acupuncture student days memorizing acupuncture point prescriptions that the innate intelligence of the body-mind is far superior to some mentation process. NMT helps to bring awareness of the cleared and information fault free innate intelligence of the body-mind to a particular health issue and thus allow the body-mind's intelligence to act in a harmonious, balanced manner to heal.
NMT can correct conditions very quickly at times. Often for some conditions it is the only effective method of correcting a condition. In the last few years other NMT practitioners have begun using the same NMT concepts and paths to harmonize group interactions, businesses, plants, animals, farming, and natural events and processes.
NMT has been distilled from the best of energetic protocols, with many new additions
Dr. Les Feinberg has taken the best of all the energetic protocols out there (below is a partial list of some of the energetic/informational protocols), stripped them of their unnecessary and clinically superfluous steps, and integrated theory from quantum physics and other new age science to help develop a language and understanding of why this works. Then he has added his own clinically researched algorithms to create a truly unmatched system of "informational medicine." At its basis is the foundation that the body-mind is self-correcting, self-healing, self-directed and that health, even robust health, is our natural state. What does occur in this informational model of health that prevents the expression of this natural state of health are "information faults."
NMT uses various forms of Muscle Response Testing as a communication method with the body-mind
The practitioner and client work as an "entangled" team walking the "autonomic control system" (ACS, i.e. body-mind) through a number of questions and statements using MRT (muscle response test) as the method of unconscious communication to methodically correct the information faults. The idea is to move from a state of dysinformation, lack of coordination, ill health, to a state of perfect health and attunement with the source of creation and health.
NMT has 80 different protocols to correct all types of health related topics
In NMT there are approximately 80 specific paths (and increasing each year!) which can be used from session to session that specify the details of the corrections depending on the subject matter for the client. These "paths" range across all the possible topics covering consciousness and meaning, energetic, chemical, physical, neurological and immune related subject matter. Any one session may process one or more paths, depending on the available time and the nature of the subject matter-- "subject matter" meaning what presentation of symptoms the client gives, and how his body-mind prioritizes that subject matter.
NMT practitioners can use NMT Treeview software to facilitate the performance of NMT
I have been studying NMT since its inception in 2002 and have kept up with all the training. I have worked closely with Dr.Feinberg to develop a software system used by NMT practitioners to help guide them through the process and document all the steps they take as they perform a NMT session. The software system is NMT Treeview and is sold directly by NMT Seminars.
I encourage you to visit the NMT site for more information about Neuromodulation Technique, including video and audio presentations by Dr. Feinberg and especially the videos of him actually doing a treatment. If you have questions, the NMT site should answer those. Certainly, the few paragraphs above that I write may not be enough. Please call if you have further questions.
NMT is part of an ancestry of energetic, informational protocols
