*NEW NIMMO (Receptor Tonus) Technique

Receptor Tonus Technique, commonly called "Nimmo", is a technique that was developed by Raymond Nimmo, D.C. This technique is based on scientific principles which explain how normal reflex arcs transition to pathophysiological arcs, affecting the tonus of the muscular system via the nervous system. This technique is not one of "muscle work" but one of "nervous system work" as ultimately the change is to the nervous system.
