"LMNT " Neurotherapy, "Nadi Mardan Kriya" is an ancient Indian rehabilitative
therapy based on the 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 co-ordinated by three different humors or energy forces as
Vata (air) pitta (bile) and kapha(water). Neurotherapy helps in restoring and balancing
the energy forces of the body that regulates the physiological equilibrium to perform
better function of thebody mind spirit Naturopathy deals almost in all branches of
medical science. 'Nadi Vigyan' (knowledge of nervous system) is one of them, that
has developed neurotherapy thousands of years ago. Neurotherapy has always been
used in ayurvedic medicine as a rehabilitative treatment known by different
names. Some of the traditional names by which of ayurvedic neurotherapy is known in
India, 'Ladara' in north India and as ' 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 application), was coined in
1950's. "Ayurvedic" Neurotherapy, places chief emphasis upon the organism's
integrity of the body's mechanism as being the most important factor in the
maintenance of health.
How does it work?
"LMNT" Neurotherapy is a complete system of healing, 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 so as to restoring 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 feet and occasionally through hands. Two chairs are
placed one on either side of the patient. The therapist rests his/her weight on 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 the
similar way of pressure application) which results in the inflow of the blood supply to
the organs stretching the tissues, muscles and the nerves.
What happens in the session?
The initial consultation involves taking the total health history of the patient. If
necessary, a further series of questions are asked to the patient. A visual analyze is
carried out by examining the eyes, color of the tongue, nails, skin, etc.
Once the verbal and visual analyze are completed, further investigation involves
abdominal palpation, that's 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 in
relation to the three biochemical forces; Alkaline-Acid-Gas.
The dis-alignment of spinal vertebrae and muscular skeleton system is also
considered, special attention is paid to the patient's food habits and living style. With
full history and investigation the therapist determines the amount of treatment
What are the applications?
Neurotherapy, an integrated system of healing, has contributed greatly to alternative
medicine. It is used as a therapy for chronic as well as acute dis-eases.
It does not merely concentrate on particular malfunctioning of a system or disease, but
deals broadly with the whole body . "LMNT" Neurotherapy helps healing and treating
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)
