Neurovascular Integration (NVI) evolved from osteopathy and craniosacral work, and is grounded in the common-sense principles of anatomy, physiology, neurology and science-based medicine.  Through the use of gentle, supportive touch, NVI engages the Autonomic Nervous System, allowing the client's brain to register a new "safe" input from the body and generate spontaneous, corrective relief patterns.  NVI helps the body release itself from "stress override" and find renewal in its own parasympathetic state.  The touch helps to regulate sensory-motor processing and helps the body process dysfunction in a more effective way.  


This work focuses on all ages, treating conditions such as:

  • Feeding Issues

  • Torticollis

  • Developmental Delay

  • Sensory Processing Disorder

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Sleep Disorder

  • Post-stroke

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Seizure Disorder

  • Chronic Pain or Injury


According to the NDTA, NDT is a holistic and interdisciplinary clinical practice model informed by current and evolving research that emphasizes individualized therapeutic handling based on movement analysis for habilitation and rehabilitation of individuals with neurological pathophysiology. The therapist uses the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) model in a problem solving approach to assess activity and participation, thereby to identify and prioritize relevant integrities and impairments as a basis for establishing achievable outcomes with clients and caregivers. An in-depth knowledge of the human movement system, including the understanding of typical and atypical development, and expertise in analyzing postural control, movement, activity, and participation throughout the lifespan, form the basis for examination, evaluation, and intervention. Therapeutic handling, used during evaluation and intervention, consists of a dynamic reciprocal interaction between the client and therapist for activating optimal sensorimotor processing, task performance, and skill acquisition to enable participation in meaningful activities.


NDT is beneficial for individuals with:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Cerebral Palsy

  • Cerebral Vascular Accident 

  • Hemiplegia

  • Spinal Cord Injury

  • Seizure Disorder

  • Other Neurological Impairments

cerebal palsy, hemipelgia, trauma, seizure
