Andrew Monaghan - Pain Relief Specialist
"For years, I suffered from chronic lower back pain, sciatica and RSI. Nothing I tried worked. Researching solutions, I discovered 'Neuromuscular Retraining'. Compared with anything else I had tried, it took an entirely different approach to pain relief. Through this approach, I finally found lasting relief from pain, strain and tension, and my posture improved. Many people struggle with chronic pain, but few know of the 'hidden keys' to long-lasting pain relief and prevention. Years on, I still love to hear of the success stories from my clients, who find relief when nothing else has worked."

Is This an Evidence-Based Approach?
The British Medical Journal ran a large-scale randomised controlled trial of this complementary approach. and found evidence of benefit for chronic back pain. So far it has also been shown to help with neck pain and osteoarthritis, with further trials coming.
Is This Approach Preventative?
While this process can give relieve pain now, a British Medical Journal study also found the benefits can be long-term, with relief lasting for months and even years without further sessions. This makes this approach far more effective and lower cost than other approaches they tested, as well as being preventative in that it can help avoid future pain or re-injury.
How Can Neuromuscular Re-training Relieve Pain?
Neuromuscular Re-training can ease pain, release tension, and reduce strain. It does this by releasing tense muscles and improving how you move.
The process involves a gentle hands-on technique as well as guided instruction to release excess tension and relieve imbalances. Changes are often long-lasting, with huge knock-on benefits in your life.
Through our life, we develop bad habits. During sessions, you experience how your body is ‘built’ to move, and how pain can occur when we work against our natural ‘design’. By re-training how to move more naturally, you can ease pain, reduce strain and prevent risk of further injury.
You also learn to improve everyday movements – including sitting, bending, standing and walking – allowing greater ease and freedom.
This approach can help many symptoms and problems, including:
- Back pain
- Neck & shoulder pain
- Joint Pain
- Various musculoskeletal and postural issues
The changes you make, physical and mental, can improve how you move, sit and stand. You can alleviate pain, feel lighter, move and “hold yourself” without effort, improve your posture, and release a lifetime of accumulated tensions and imbalances.
How long does it take?
This depends entirely on your goals and current state. Some people come for one or two sessions and find some relief, and that’s good enough for them. Others interested in fully solving their issue come for six or more sessions. Some with chronic, disabling conditions decide to continue regular sessions as they continue to improve and benefit.
What can I expect during a session?
A session lasts 45-60 mins and focuses on pain relief. In the process, we will look for factors in your daily life that might add to, or cause, pain. You will explore factors that cause pain and strain in daily life and discover easier, more natural ways to move.
By doing so, you can:
- Relieve Pain
- Reducing muscle tension and strain
- Improve your posture
- Gain tools to prevent and relieve future pain and discomfort on your own
- Feel lighter, freer, and more relaxed
- Feel more grounded
