n practice, NSI® is a breakthrough approach to mind-body awareness that combines bodywork with the latest understandings of human neurobiology, especially the activation of the Social Engagement System as described in the work of Dr. Steven W. Porges. NSI goes beyond traditional bodywork approaches to address the underlying neural networks that are responsible for the symptoms associated with trauma and emotional distress. Through intuitive, instinctual touch and observation that allows the body-worker to “tune in” to the neural signals of the client, NSI bypasses symptomatic manifestations of trauma and works directly with the body’s own wisdom to rewire neural networks . Release of stored trauma, postural changes, diminished or eliminated pain, increased flexibility, a new interpersonal openness and socially engaged connections are immediate results of this work.
