About Neurotherapy

“LMNT” Neurotherapy, “Nadi Mardan Kriya,” is an ancient Indian rehabilitative therapy based on Vedic principles & philosophy. This natural healing therapy deals with nerves, muscles, joints, and blood & lymphatic channels. Authorities in the field believe that the body is coordinated by three different humor or energy forces Vata (air), pitta (bile), and Kapha (water). Neurotherapy helps restore and balance the body’s energy forces that regulate the physiological equilibrium to perform a better body function, mind spirit Naturopathy deals almost in all branches of medical science. ‘Nadi Vigyan’ (knowledge of the nervous system) is one of them that developed Neurotherapy thousands of years ago. Neurotherapy has always been used in ayurvedic medicine as a rehabilitative treatment known by different names. Some traditional names by which ayurvedic Neurotherapy is known in India are ‘Ladara’ in north India and ‘ Kerali Massage ‘ in the south. Ayurvedic Neurotherapy was re-pioneered by Mr. Lajpatrai Mehra in Bombay, India. The term Neurotherapy (neuro means Nadi or nerves; therapy is an application) was coined in the 1950s. “Ayurvedic” Neurotherapy places chief emphasis on the organism’s integrity of the body’s mechanism as the essential factor in maintaining health.

How Does It Work?


“LMNT” Neurotherapy is a complete healing system incorporating mechanical, psychological, bio-force, and biochemical aspects. It discovers the root cause of the disease and treats the same in an integrated manner. The disorder of the bodily organs causes an imbalance in the biochemical forces leading to the development of dis- eases. The therapist activates or deactivates the organ(s) through pressure or massage on the nerve channels to stimulate or depress the blood, & other body fluids and the nerve currents to restore the balance and harmony of the body, thus helping the body regain its equilibrium.

What Therapeutic Method Is Applied?


Unlike most other body-work therapy, pressure & massage is applied to different part of the body, mainly through the feet and occasionally through the hands. Two chairs are placed, one on either side of the patient. The therapist rests their weight on the chair and applies pressure by standing on the patient’s body with the weight and the pressure being skillfully controlled. However, the pressure applied to the connecting nerve channels is regulated according to the age, sex, and tolerance of the patient. The other technique used in “Ayurvedic” Neurotherapy is massage (massage is applied in a similar way to pressure application) which results in the inflow of the blood supply to the organs, stretching the tissues, muscles, and nerves.

What Happens In The Session?


The initial consultation involves taking the complete health history of the patient. If necessary, a further series of questions are asked of the patient. Visual analysis is carried out by examining the eyes, tongue color, nails, skin, etc. Once the verbal and visual analysis is completed, further investigation involves abdominal palpation, examining the tender points. Focusing on these tender points, the therapist discovers the malfunctioning of any organ(s). Based on these investigations, a final picture is drawn about the patient’s condition concerning the three biochemical forces; Alkaline-Acid-Gas. The dis-alignment of spinal vertebrae and muscular skeleton system is also considered, and special attention is paid to the patient’s food habits and living style. With the entire history and investigation, the therapist determines the amount of treatment required.

What Are The Applications?


Neurotherapy, an integrated healing system, has contributed significantly to alternative medicine. It is used as a therapy for chronic as well as acute diseases. It does not merely concentrate on particular malfunctioning of a system or disease but deals broadly with the whole body. “LMNT” Neurotherapy helps heal and treat diseases from fever to cancer, the common cold to heart disease, arthritis to multiple sclerosis, etc. However, it does not deal with surgical issues (e.g., hernia)
