Neuro Rocking Release Therapy®, CPD Training
NRRT® is a form of gentle body work consisting of bilateral stimulation of the brain which resets the central nervous system (CNS) by balancing the responses of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems (P-SNS) and it is inspired by years of clinical experience and observation, modern neuroscience, Gestalt psychotherapy and ancient Japanese and Indian bodywork techniques known to sooth the nervous system.
NRRT® has a profound effect on patients struggling with high levels of stress, PTSD, CPTSD, chronic pain, emotional deregulation, sleep disorders and any disorders stemming from or made worse by stress AKA a sympathetic nervous system overload which can result in a fight/flight/freeze/friend response.
No special equipment is required to practice Neuro Rocking Release Therapy, nor oils, needles, couch roll or any overheads at all. Just your hands, your knowledge, your willingness to help and hold the space for the receiver of the technique.
We would love for the NRRT family to keep growing! This technique is relevant because it is non-invasive, it is gentle as opposed to the dramatic, hard approach to healing and generally living and most importantly, it targets where trauma lives: the body and its nervous system. So, join us so that we can reach and touch more people's lives!

“For the first time in two years the pain in my left shoulder went completely!! Which in itself helped me feel happier!”. Emotional-related chronic shoulder pain gone after the first session!
“The parts I enjoyed the most were, after the leg rocking is complete, there’s a like a rush that spreads from my toes all the way up my body. Is a really calming and pleasant wave-like feeling and feels like all my anxiety and negative thoughts just washes out of my body. I also enjoyed the pressure applied to my spine when I exhaled, again it felt like anxiety and negativity were literally being pushed out of my body. Finally I enjoyed the sounds at the end which were meant to align both the left and right brain, that was also a very pleasant, centring and calming experience”.
“My first session was quite short but even after just 20 minutes of NRRT®, I felt lighter in myself. That weekend, I slept through every night and fell asleep within 10 minutes of getting into bed!”
“Every day in between my sessions I would use a trick Ana taught me and it really helped me manage my symptoms, it gave me the same warm feeling throughout my body as I felt when Ana was doing the NRRT®. I saw my mood and anxieties lift, almost as if the things that overwhelmed me before suddenly felt more manageable. Interestingly, now it’s been a few weeks since I saw Ana last, after three sessions and I still use her trick when I can feel the old anxieties creeping back in.”
“Social and general anxiety felt less at the forefront and more manageable, less anxious thoughts and easier to handle anxious situations. I avoided social situations less and it has been easier to stick with exercise and healthy eating and habits.”
“My concentration felt like it had improved, reading/listening/ watching things that normally wouldn’t inspire interest and focus for me were a lot easier to engage with and maintain focus even though they were still relatively “boring” for me. Usually, my brain would switch off after a few seconds or I’d start to fidget or my thoughts would wander.”
“Nightmares still remained however they weren’t as scary/upsetting.”
**** The above clients had several seemingly unrelated symptoms which, through regulation of the nervous system via the NRRT, disappeared or significantly reduced from the first session ****
