About NOT

Neural Organisation Technique is a comprehensive holistic health care system developed by Dr Carl Ferreri. NOT integrates low force Chiropractic spinal care, Sacro Occipital Technique [SOT] concepts, Applied Kinesiology [AK] principles and testing, together with holistic health approaches from Western and Eastern Science in an evidenced based, contemporary neuroscience framework.

The collective aim of NOT is to restore your Nervous System health to facilitate energy efficient self regulation of your key body functions. Ensuring your survival systems of feeding, fight/flight, reproduction and immune health can be engaged as required. Modern life often “pushes” us toward a state of “Sympathetic Dominance” with our fight/flight responses engaged persistently depleting our ability to regulate sufficient daily energy and digestive health.

NOT is designed to identify neural disorganisation caused by your body’s unresolved adaptation to common stressors such as physical injury, emotional stress and biochemical challenge. The NOT protocols explore your nervous system health through a series of spine health and brain health checks. The spine health/brain health checks review your functional status in relation to the specific situations of injury/challenge, postural distortion/biomechanical instability as well as the differing neuro physiological events of daytime and night time.

Our online courses will enable you to learn and understand the NOT system in the comfort of your own home, at your pace. The course has a theory/how to/why to component and a practical only section both of which you can complete online.

Your purchase includes simple, easy to understand theory/practical videos and practical only videos, manuals for each module, evidence based power points, practical flow charts and faculty support. On completion of your course, an online questionnaire, successfully completed, provides you with certification and continuing education credits approved in Australia and most states in the United States of America.

Hands on workshops and seminars are also held to enhance your skill base and support your practice success.
