As about CE credits for your profession
Neural Release Therapy

Neural Release Therapy (NRT) is a technique that provides pain relief and aids in return of function and mobility. It is performed by licensed health care professionals such as Nurses, Doctors, Nursing Technicians, Personal Care Providers, and Massage Therapists. These professionals are instructed initially with their formal education and have added additional training in order to perform NRT. It originated with Dr. Huneke in the 1930’s during his consolidation of knowledge on the Autonomic Nervous System. This therapy works on the autonomic ganglia (nerve groups controlling internal organs), peripheral nerves (nerves controlling the extremities, such as arms and legs), scars, glands, acupressure points, trigger points, and segmental points (nerve points controlling segments of the body).
 
Neural Release Therapy applies pressure with fingers, hands, small metal devices, or wooden implements. Also magnets, ultrasound, or electro-stimulation can be used depending on the skills and qualifications of the practitioner.

The use of devices, implements, magnets and electro-dermal stim is not included in this class. This would be included in an advanced level. Ultrasound is included in this class.

As professionals holding advanced certifications where clinical methods may be applied, you become resourceful to the community you serve.

About Robert:
 
Robert received his formal massage training at the Potomac Massage Training Institute (PMTI) in Washington, D.C., graduated in 2006 and received his national certification in 2007. In addition he participated in the Georgetown University Mini Medical School, a program designed to create a peer relationship between students of medicine and massage. In 2008 he went on to further his career goal by attending the Institute for Therapeutic Massage in Pompton Lakes, N.J. where he studied Hospital based orthopedic massage, and had an opportunity to practice at the Robert E. Johnson University of Medicine and dentistry, Institute for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
 
In 2010 Robert joined the Washington Institute of Natural Medicine where his practice thrived, and he was named as the lead massage practitioner. Furthering his vision for the massage industry, Robert received his Doctorate of Integrative Massotherapy from the First National University of Therapeutics which is a federally chartered school and has been in existence since 1906, and known as one of the oldest schools that offer degrees in alternative medicine.  Massotherapy (or massage therapy) is the treatment of disorders of the human body through "hands on" manipulation of the soft tissues. Massotherapy is also a kind of "preventative medicine." It is used to relieve physical stress and imbalance before they develop into serious problems. Within the Doctor of Massotherapy degree program that Robert attended he studied advanced bodywork modalities.
These therapies augment conventional medical care.
 
Robert is also certified in Reflexology, Acupressure, Ear Candling, Foot Detox, and Lymphatic Drainage.
