I’m from Switzerland and have been based in Sri Lanka since 1999.

I do craniosacral therapy and also have a background in energy work.

I’m a big fan of this novel technique – PNT – I’m practicing. It is by far the best tool I have come across for pain management and to restore holistic health.

What is the Pain Neutralization Technique (PNT)?

Pain Neutralization Technique is a non-pharmacological, non-invasive technique for pain Neutralization developed by Dr. Steven Kaufman, DC, ALc.  The technique involves gentle tissue manipulation to “turn off” the nerve-based reflexes that perpetuate trigger points and muscle pain, and is proving to be particularly effective in the treatment of chronic pain. Also effective for headaches, post surgical pains, dental pains (after dental treatment) anxiety, PTSD, breathing problems.

PNT does not use mechanical force for treatment, and is quite different from other procedures for treating trigger points which usually involves some amount of pain during treatment such as deep tissue massage. Light pressure with finger tips is used. There is little to no discomfort during the procedure. In fact, many fall asleep during treatment.
