Neural Manipulation, an Osteopathic modality, gently releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body. Releasing a nerve compression creates freedom and movement within the nervous system. This has a flow on effect to the connective tissue (fascia) that holds our bodies together, changing the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns.

For a nerve to function at its best it needs to be able to move freely (up to 10cm) within its surrounding structures. Neural Manipulation enhances proper functioning of the nervous system - one of the communication highways throughout the body.


A flexible nerve is essential for:

  • Nerve conduction.
  • Electromagnetic conduction.
  • Intraneural blood and nerve supply.
  • Local and systemic responsiveness.


When a nerve becomes fixated, sections of the nerve can harden creating a very sensitive or painful to touch ‘nerve bud’.


Nerve buds can come about by:

  • Neurotrophic disease, eg shingles.
  • Body posture imbalances.
  • Mechanical force or energies such as friction, pressure, or traction.
  • Severe or repetitive mirco-traumas such as muscle contractions, bad posture, small sprains, or non-physiological movement.


Treatment sessions use precise applied pressure on local nerve fixations.  This can quite easily have a more global effect on a dysfunctional pattern that is affecting different parts of the body. For example, carpel tunnel like symptoms could be stemming from a nerve fixation within the abdomen.
