about neural organization technique
"Any insult to the central integrative state, can change how our brain views the world and reorganize itself to adapt to what it thinks it interprets. N.O.T has the capacity to reset the perceptual mode of the brain to how it was innately organized setting the stage for self realization."
Dr Reza Samvat Chiropractic neuro-physiologist

Neural Organization Technique is a holistic physical and energy medicine modality. which deals with our basic primal survival systems of fight/flight, feeding/digestion, reproduction and immune. Our health depends on how well these systems are maintained and their ability to receive, process and respond to sensory information in a constantly changing environment of both internal and external stressors. Treatment utilizes a sensory receptor-based therapy involving primarily skin surface reflexes designed to normalize nervous system function.
Neural Organization Technique focuses on development in neonatal early natal neurological development, i.e. our primitive survival systems. These primitive primal Systems are Fight/Flight, Feeding, and Reproduction representing external survival systems with the Immune system,recognized as an internal system. These survival systems are universal and basically the same in all forms of life. Our survival systems function on a subconscious level, (autonomic nervous system) allowing life to survive in a hostile or potentially hostile environment by fleeing from or fighting our predators/enemies, by gathering and assimilating food and with reproduction, for the procreation of the species. The challenge in Neural Organization Technique and many other healing arts is working with these systems to obtain diagnostic information and a therapy that offers predicable results in an efficient and cost effective manner.
The purpose of Neural Organization Technique is to re-establish optimal neural function by resetting neural pathways and undoing compensatory states. By returning neural function back to its original state, the concept of rehabilitation and or retraining is no longer the highest priority. An optimally functioning nervous system allows the body to heal from acute or chronic illness and traumas at maximum efficiency and at the same time raises our vitality and improves longevity. This is what makes N.O.T. special within the healing arts community.
Dr. Carl Ferreri Father and Developer of Neural Organization Technique
Here is a recent interview with Dr Annalee Kitay on Neural Organization Technique
In 1978 Dr. Carl Ferreri, a chiropractic physician from New York, further developed the basic concepts of Applied Kinesiology and several other chiropractic techniques into an eclectic protocol he named Neural Organization Technique (N.O.T.) . His theme was nothing is impossible; as it relates to the central nervous system and body’s ability to heal itself. His passion was helping the developmentally delayed especially Down Syndrome and many other debilitating conditions of both children and adults. His knowledge of the human body, neural function and energy medicine was that of a genius in not only in knowledge but also in clinical practice.
