Chronic Pain Gone in minutes!!!
Sounds to good to be true. That’s what Dr. Julie and I said when we heard those claims but decided to check it out further. Dr. Stephen Kaufman has developed what he terms Pain Neutralization Technique (PNT) to do just that. Dr. Kaufman bases PNT on some well known neurological principles. Some of those are the golgi tendon reflex (stretch reflex), competitive inhibition, and myotatic reflexes.
Activating the golgi tendon reflex in a muscle group that has pain or trigger points result in the muscle going flaccid. Witness weightlifters who try to over lift and lose the strength in the muscle. By contrast, stretching a muscle and stimulating the myotatic reflex will strengthen that muscle. Dr. Kaufman has combined these two principles in some very simple yet unique ways to affect the pain relief.
As I said we were skeptical so we took a training seminar with Dr. Kaufman, and sure enough after a little practice and some trail and error we were turning off some very stubborn pain.
