NISA (Neuromuscular Integration and Structural Alignment) Course now available in Halifax! NISA is a deep tissue technique that works directly on the fascia of the body. It provides long lasting changes to chronic postural habits, and most clients feel increased range of motion and less restriction after one or two treatments. NISA is a softer, more gentle derivative of Rolfing, and can be performed in individual treatments or in a specific series of twelve weekly sessions with a direct focus of improving the person's posture. The NISA process releases fascial adhesions; it stretches, frees, & clears the tissue. The softened layers of fascia, having regained their flexibility and elasticity, permit improved structural alignment and body mechanics. The NISA Basic Course (28 hours) The four day basic training is an intensive, practical, hands-on workshop, and the techniques can easily be incorporated into your massage practice.

I am frequently asked for referrals for RMTs who practice the NISA technique, but I'm not sure where you all are. Therefore, a new database is being developed, listing basic practitioners as well as certified practitioners. If you know of anyone who should be included on this database, please pass this information on to them and have them contact me.
