NEUROSTRUCTURAL INTEGRATION TECHNIQUE
‘NST is a powerful multidimensional technique, which has been specifically developed for the ongoing dynamic integration of the structure and viscera via stimulation of the central, peripheral autonomic nervous system. The main objective is to remove pain and dysfunctional physiological conditions by restoring the structural integrity of the body.’
Michael Nixon Livy – Developer of NST
INTRO TO NEUROSTRUCTURAL INTEGRATION THERAPY
This therapy does not claim to cure any condition. However, when muscular imbalances are released, the body will regulate itself. Pain and its symptoms are relieved and energy levels can be increased. Clients will always see improvement in their conditions and achieve a renewed sense of self, energy and wellbeing.
- Crohn’s Disease
- Menopausal Issues
- Weight Balance/Metabolism
- And many other conditions
The following list of symptoms frequently disappears in response to an NST session:
- Acute/Chronic Pain
- Neck Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Facial/TMJ Pain
- Urinary disorders
- Menstrual problems
- Prostate problems
- Visual problems
- Learning disorders
- Digestive/gastro intestinal issues
Whilst the above list of conditions is the most typical that respond to an NST session, there are many other more serious conditions, which can also respond favourably to treatment.
- Parkinsons disease
- Muliple Sclerosis
- Degenerative conditions such as chronic fatigue syndrome and glandular fever to name a few
FOR THOSE WHO REQUIRE AN INDEPTH EXPLANATION
Using a combination of neurological and energetic blockage points, an initial temporary natural sedation is applied to the body. Then using specific rolling motions (called moves) across designated muscle, tendon, nerve end ligament points, a three part integrated body balance is applied, which is partly performed with the client in a prone position and then completed with the client in the supine position. This is generally comprised of a combination of further blockage and release points.
The Moves are unique to NST therapy, resembling neither massage, shiatsu, acupressure, osteopathic, or any other therapy’s activation, stimulation or release. The illiocostalislumborum muscle is sedated at the level of spinal vertebrae L3 by activating its lateral border. The longissimus and semispinalis thoracis muscles are sedated stimultaneously at the level of spinal vertebraeT8 by activating their common intersection.
A prepatory release is applied to the sacrum, by crossing the common intersection of the gluteus maximus and gluteusmedius muscles, at the level of the superior aspect of the gluteal crease. The sacrum is stabilised while moderate pressure is applied to the fully flexed lower extremity, moving it into a lateral direction, thereby creating a gentle torquing pressure at the sacroiliac articulation.
The common attachment of the Ilitibialis muscle group is released at the Ischial tuberosity in a lateral direction, before three posterior releases are applied to the Iliotibial tract. The longissimus and Semispinalis thoracis muscles are once again sedated simultaneously at the level of spinal vertebrae T8/T9 by activating their common intersection.
The Longissimus thoracis muscle is now activated in a lateral direction at the approximate levels, of spinal vertebrae T10, T12 and L2 respectively. The longissimus and semispinalis thoracis muscles are once again sedated simultaneously at the level of spinal vertebrae T8/T9, by activating their common intersection while moderate pressure is applied to the fully flexed lower extremity in a lateral direction.
The pressure is sufficient to create a gentle integrative torquing pressure, through the sacrum, lumbar and lower thoracic spine. The longissimus thoracis muscle is now sedated in a medial direction at the approximate levels, of spinal vertebrae T10, T12 and L2 respectively.
Once the client is in the supine position additional releases are applied to the diaphragm, neck and knees. Other optional procedures may be blended into this integrated body balance to add specificity or release when necessary. There are optional procedures for the shoulders, elbows, and wrists, pelvis, ankles, coccyx , TMJ, complex.
WHAT MY CLIENTS THINK
J. D. Testimonial
I, probably like a lot of other people, have a long running physical problem that does not seem to be able to be treated by normal medical practice. As well as the physical pain, this obviously has other effects on the body and mind, none of which I was aware, making things worse generally creating a vicious circle. Since becoming a patient of yours and having treatment which is still ongoing, I am so pleased with the results and this is from a person who could be best described as a non believer and thought that nothing was going to work whatever it was.
Therefore the knowledge that you need not suffer in silence and that help is there from another treatment which is completely natural using only your own body and the techniques which you so expertly practice both with knowledge and compassion, is a great relief. In both having the treatment and following the knowledgable advice you give, not only do I get relief from my main physical problem, but I also gain from the other benefits the treatment can bring.
Obviously I now do not hesitate to recommend you immediately to anyone I know who is having any trouble physical, emotional or otherwise, so that they may also benefit from your help. My husband is a case in point, who is already feeling the benefit of your treatment for his skin problems. Many thanks for a wonderful service.

I have always found Marilyn to be gentle, warm & welcoming. A visit to her house is always relaxing & as soon as you step through her door you know you are going to be treated with kindness & respect. Her style is utterly un-intrusive & professional. She also has a sweet & natural sense of humour that never oversteps any boundaries between client & therapist. I have never felt rushed, & every visit have felt I was at the total centre of her attention, which is quite a rarity in all of my previous experiences (I spent a good 5 years trying various practitioners like Physios & Chiropracters). If I have had any extra problems from time to time (like my repetitive strain wrist injury) she would give it a little extra attention with no complaint & complete generosity.
I appreciate this opportunity to express my gratitude to Marilyn & be be given the chance to let anyone who will listen know about her. I have recommended Marilyn to several people with the secure knowledge that in no way would she let me down, & wish to state, I could NOT say that about any other professional I know ! This testimonial may seem a little unbalanced as I cannot think of any negative points to make, but that is simply the (truthful) way it is.

After an hour with Marilyn, perhaps once a month, I am all these things. Her soothing “bedside” manner and gentle touch put me so at ease that it is very easy to doze off-and its allowed! There is no need to spend hard earned cash on medicine and pills. There is far more value for money in one hour with Marilyn Read than any medication could buy. I would not hesitate to recommend her treatment to anyone because I know Marilyn will have the knowledge and skill to soothe away the symptoms of most complaints.

I am a clerical worker so spend most of my days desk bound and at a Computer, also the job is stressful and pressurised so after a week at work I feel totally wound up and tense, however a combination of body alignment and healing sessions from Marilyn I feel relaxed and able to cope. Last year I had a couple of falls and strained my ham-string badly, a couple of treatments meant I was back at work in a week – quicker than any footballer! I would recommend Marilyn's treatments for anyone and for any issue as Marilyn always seems to come up with the solution whether it may be physical or mental.

The treatment relaxes her so much that it is the only night that she sleeps right through! She benefits greatly from each therapeutic session. I don’t understand the ins and outs of Marilyn's treatment but I know that it is very safe and effective in improving many conditions. Marilyn has seen our daughter through many trauma’s in the last few years, and when she had to have major spinal surgery Marilyn created a Hypnotic recording which we played over and over for her, and which sped up her recovery so much that her surgeon said that he had never seen scars heal so quickly.
Our daughter enjoys the sessions immensely and always looks forward to seeing Marilyn and gets very excited when she sees her. If you get the opportunity for your sons or daughters to experience Marilyn's unique treatment I would highly recommend it.

Just a few sessions got me back on my feet again, Marilyn administered a few different therapies non of which I understand however as I write it is October 2020 and I still feel very happy and healthy. I visit for my “Top up” session as Marilyn calls it from time to time. I have recommended the treatments to several friends over the years and each one says how professional and dedicated Marilyn is to her work. Thanks Marilyn from one of your appreciative patients.

After 4 months of treatment I did a sponsored walk from South Pier to St, Annes Pier, and out of 30 walkers I was in the first 3, and I had no side effects, thanks to you! Looking forwards to my next session with you.

As I had a routine appointment on the Thursday afternoon, I did nothing and when I awoke on the Wednesday morning my hand looked like a claw and I was totally unable toto extend my fingers and thumb into the straight position and there was extensive swelling at the base of my thumb. I also had pain in my elbow and shoulder due to the energy transferring the length of my arm due to my arm being completely straight on impact taking all my weight (stupidly!!!). This was the position when Marilyn saw it. She applied energy therapy on me and I left about 14.30 hours. By about 17.30 I noticed that the swelling was slowly beginning to reduce and by the next morning had almost gone but more significantly was the fact that I could straighten my hand. Within the week my hand, elbow and shoulder had returned to normal function and a short time later it was as if the accident had never happened.
I am neither unintelligent nor gullible and I know that the therapies practised by Marilyn Read work. Though I do not fully understand how, I am certain that the only thing that can “cure” the ills of the body is the brain which has a whole arsenal of weapons to call on. These therapies appear to alert the brain to the problem which it then deals with. I am sure that regular therapy sessions assist in keeping my immune system healthy and efficient an niggles are attended to before they get a hold. There are a myriad of conditions which can be helped by the various therapies employed by Marilyn, probably resulting in a huge reduction in the NHS drug bill!

During our meeting I became more receptive to the possibilities of the treatment and was surprised at the feeling of relaxation I gained from you at the first session. At the time I was unknowingly highly stressed and was suffering from disturbed sleep patterns, and decided to have a course of treatments as much of an experiment. The treatment has been surprisingly effective, though I am still not entirely sure how it works even though you did explain it was to do with Fascia in the body. It has changed my conscious feelings and I now feel substantially more relaxed in my day-to-day activities. My sleep patterns have become more regular and I generally feel healthier. A bonus to the intended benefits of the treatment I have noticed that I have now greatly reduced my smoking from approximately 40 cigarettes to less than 5.
In short your treatment has fulfilled everything you said it could and more besides-Thank you for your time and help I am most grateful and intend to continue with the treatment. My Wife and staff also send their thanks as well as I am apparently less prickly to deal with! I will have no hesitation in recommending you and your services to my family, friends, and clients. Once again thank you for a first rate service.
