Nutritional Reflex Technique
Nutritional Reflex technique, NRT, is a bioelectric reflex muscle technique researched and developed by Dr. Gary Lasneski that is designed to work with nutritional, homeopathic, and herbal remedies. NRT aims to uncover the root cause of illness and to identify structural faults, heavy metals, chemical toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, immune breakdown, hormonal imbalances, leaky gut, and emotional issues. This technique is not designed to replace laboratory or standard physical examinations but to reduce unnecessary laboratory testing and compliment the practitioner. For example there may be a dozen different natural compounds that have been proven effective for the treatment of yeast overgrowth. This method helps to narrow down and best prescribe the best method for the individual.

This popular physical therapy treatment utilizes medium frequency electrical currents to produce a massaging effect to injured areas.
