Grant has been in the health and wellness industry for over 25 years, He has a degree in Sports Science and is a qualified Neuroactive Movement Therapist. Grant has worked internationally in rehabilitation clinics in London, Melbourne and in Brisbane where he worked doing Postural Neural Conditioning. He then studied NeuroPhysics and became a therapist and went on to successfully treat a number of patients with Parkinson’s disease and stroke  patients. He has a passion for helping people suffering from long term back and joint pain as well as people trying to optimise movement.

Grant now lives in Papamoa with his wife Megan and has three children Summer, Finn and Zali.

He loves to fish, camp and be actively involved in his kids sport.

NeuroActive Movement Therapy is an extremely gentle, exercise-based treatment that engages and triggers your body’s natural healing processes through very light and controlled resistance training. NMT activates the nervous system to stimulate both the brain and body to “re-coordinatetheir lines of communications” for a return to proper optimalfunction. 

 

Pain inhibits and changes nerve signals to these painful areas of the body this creates compensatory patterns in your posturethat in some cases continues creating pain long after the physical structure has repaired. NMT therapy triggers the body’s natural health and repair processes to recalibrate and return back to normal function. It works by using knowledge about how our nervous systems communicate throughout our brains and bodies, by treating the whole human system rather than isolating “trouble spots” that need ”fixing.”

 

This uniquely natural, mild exercise therapy enables the body to do its healing work moving it toward optimal physical and mental functioning, significantly improving people’s quality of life, often in a remarkably short time. NMT uses gentle movement patterns to uncover your brains own unique natural neurogenic tremor and uses that to recalibrate your body.These tremors are the central nervous system’s innate way of discharging excessive tension through the rapid muscle contraction and relaxation of the tremors to calm the body down from an over excited adrenal state. The tremors have been described as like a massage from the inside out and are mostly experienced as mildly pleasurable often with an associated feeling of heat or release spreading throughout the body.

Some people experience large amplitude tremors with their legs shaking significantly (which tends to be the body breaking up gross and superficial tension) while others experience a more refined and purring like vibration that moves further through the body as it becomes more relaxed.Every person will have their own individual tremor pattern according to their own unique history, experience and tension patterns. How and where the tremors occur is regulated by each individual’s brainstem just as each person will have their own individual heart rate and respiration in response to the same amount of exercise.
