About Lawrence Woods
As a well-experienced and respected clinician and now innovator, Lawrence Woods has developed an exciting new therapy. Part of this work, called Neural Reset Therapy, was developed and expanded from previous manual therapeutic approaches based on Sherrington's Law of Reciprocal Inhibition. After being disappointed and frustrated over the occasional spectacular result and the many failures to effectively and reliably reset the tonus of a muscle to a more optimal state, he set out to uncover the secrets of how to do this each and every time.

Neural Reset Therapy®
Lawrence had a series of 6 insights of how to apply the law of reciprocal inhibition so that every therapist can now rapidly get optimal results with each client. Not only that, while working on that process, he came across a method based on Pfluger's Law of Symmetry to get the same results from the other side of the body. Even if part of the body is in a cast, has a burn, or some other trauma, relief from muscular pain can be had from working on the opposite limb or body part. This is a discovery not reported in any known literature in the field. He calls it Twin Reset.

Before all that, he was originally a chemistry major and worked in chemical research in the Chicago area. Later he worked as a research assistant at Columbia University Medical School in New York City. After going back to college and getting another degree, he worked with the severely mentally disabled as a public heath dental hygienist for a decade while training for his current profession.

Lawrence currently lives in Indianapolis and has a thriving practice. He practices what he advises his clients. Since 1970, he has eaten a natural diet (vegetarian for 34 years, vegan for 8), works out daily, and has practiced various forms of meditation for over 40 years.

About Ralph Stephens

Ralph is a 2008 Inductee, Massage Therapy Hall of Fame!

Ralph Stephens has been practicing massage therapy to successfully treat the injuries and pain complaints of his clients for the last 27 years. While his particular focus is on athletes with clients ranging from Olympians and Paralympians to passionate amateurs, he also works with other populations from couch potatoes, pre-natal, chronic pain, and fibromyalgia to MS, post-surgery, and brain/cord injuries. Their continued performance, rapid recoveries, and relief from pain is a testament to Ralph’s excellent work, combining sports massage techniques, neuromuscular therapy, medical massage, and Neural Reset Therapy® (NRT).
But while his clients sing the praises of his hands-on skills, the massage therapy community knows him best as a gifted teacher. He is known for his ability to take complex anatomical and physiological concepts and make them both easy to understand and immediately applicable. His entertaining presentations make learning fun and easy to remember. Ralph says of his own teaching style, “I am not simply teaching to impress my students with what I can do, but to share with them what I know so they can become more successful therapists. ” As a Massage Therapy Hall of Fame inductee, textbook author, regular Massage Today columnist, and AMTA National Meritorious Award winner, he doesn’t need to suck up class time proving himself to a crowd. Rather, Ralph’s focus is on ensuring that students learn what it is they need to become more effective massage therapists.

Ralph’s vision is for more of the public to receive high quality therapeutic massage. To accomplish this, he aims to train ever-increasing numbers of massage therapists in advanced techniques that are effective at two things simultaneously: helping clients recover from injury and pain, and preventing injury in the massage therapists themselves, thereby helping to sustain and prolong their careers. It’s for this purpose that he travels to teach so extensively, rather than keeping his head down and worrying only about his own clients.

Ralph himself never stops learning, whether it’s a new massage technique like NRT or perfecting his golf swing or yoga skills. What is his invitation to you as a massage therapist? “Come study with me, so together we can help more people live healthier, happier, pain-free lives.”

About Rob Hayden

A graduate of Boston College with a BA in Psychology and Theater in 1971, Rob was introduced and became interested in bodywork in 1975. Throughout many varied work and life experiences over the next fifteen years, from pounding nails, to theater tech, to directing a state-wide development project for the sport of fencing, among others, his interest in learning about and testing various forms of bodywork remained, to the benefit of his many friends and relatives. His own pain from vehicle accidents led him to a personal understanding of neuromuscular therapy and the development of neuromuscular self-care
Six years into his neuromuscular career, he began teaching with the Stillpoint School of Massage Therapy, which merged with the Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, MA in 1998. Over 15 years, Rob taught courses in muscle and bone anatomy, muscle and joint testing, pain and dysfunction assessment, and trigger point technique. He also developed and ran seminars in neuromuscular self-care and in functional anatomy. To this day, "spilling his brains" for those who are interested in understanding how the body's musculature works and its relationship to pain mechanisms excites him. "If I can share what it may have taken me decades to understand, so that someone else can know it sooner and move forward further, then I have served my purpose in eliminating a little more pain out of the world each day."

  Introduced to NRT by a colleague, he found it so exciting a modality that he, with Lawrence's permission, fast-tracked himself through the seminars and training with Lawrence in order to help bring NRT out into the world. For him, NRT is a totally new approach to pain relief and the normalization of hypertonic muscle tissue. Instead of manipulating the soft tissue to bring balance between the musculature and the nervous system, with all of the discomfort and time that it entails, NRT resolves the muscle issues directly through the nervous system. “If the nerves aren't telling the muscle to be tight, they're not tight! That's new! That's different!” Rob wants to bring to you this new approach to remove pain, more quickly and with less effort.

Pain, injury recovery, and post-surgical rehabilitation are not just topics Mindaloo has studied. She has been diagnosed with high grade Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS), a genetic condition. Because of this, she has had to undergo spine, knee, hip, and shoulder surgery. Through her journey of healing Mindaloo discovered a gap between physical therapy protocols and working out in the gym. The desire to fill this gap led her to attend the National Personal Trainers Institute in 2006. Upon graduation, she took a teaching position at NPTI and supervised the practical portion. She’s an NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist and achieved Advanced Structural Assessment and Corrective Exercise Program Design certifications.
Mindaloo spent time as an apprentice under the tutelage of Esteban Ruvalcaba MA, LMT, BCTMB. During that time, she acquired 200+ hours of supervised, hands on practicum covering specific assessment and palpation skills of the joints and skeletal muscles. She also assisted Mr. Ruvalcaba in some of his teachings at Missouri State AMTA conferences. For the last 2 years in Las Vegas, Mindaloo served as a member of the coaching/training staff for team USA (UMMAF) at the World Championships for the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF). At the latest 2017 board meeting, she was nominated and voted in favor of becoming the first and only Team UMMAF sanctioned Team Trainer. Along with running her business and helping local clients, she will now travel the world implementing NRT to the fighters who represent Team USA.

She, and her husband Chris, own and operate M3 Muscle Motion Mastery. At a new intake her clients receive a full postural assessment from standing, sitting, and lying positions and motion recruitments. Then, she facilitates optimal muscle functioning via NRT and other modalities. After that is completed, her clients receive correctional exercise programs. Once proper motion is learned and understood, you advance into greater and more dynamic training programs, thus developing mastery of the many motions the human body performs. When she first discovered NRT she knew immediately that it would not only fit well into her business model but that it would help her clients advance to the motion stage much faster with greater neuromuscular function.

From the beginning, she knew she wanted to become an NRT instructor and bring NRT knowledge and credentials into the sports and training world, as it would not only get athletes to the top of their game, but also help with injury prevention and recovery. Now, as a Certified NRT Instructor she is working to get NRT recognized as an approved CEU course for professionals in the sports and training world. Once a detailed list of qualifying credentials outside of massage therapy is established she will post it on the NRT website. She can’t wait to see what the end result of NRT in sports will look like!

Allyson Hopkins has been an educator and healer all her life. She believes in the innate wisdom and ability of the body to heal itself, the need for hands-on therapies like NRT to be made available to all, and the power of education to change the world.  

Allyson graduated from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA with a B.A. in Education, traveling to Santa Fe, NM to complete her student teacher training at the Santa Clara Native American reservation. She fell in love with the people and the land, and stayed for 5 years, teaching and learning. It was during this period that she became aware of the power and value of non-conventional healing therapies. 

Upon returning to the Boston area, Allyson entered the health education field. She worked with a number of colleges and Universities in the area, including an 11-year stint at Wellesley College. She became a teacher trainer for health education, committed to reaching as many students as she could by training other teachers to spread healing information. 
After a move to NC, Allyson decided to incorporate her love of kinesthetic learning and appreciation of the power of touch therapy by studying and graduating from the Body Therapy Institute in Siler City, NC, including the Spirit of Learning teacher training program; the only program in the country for certifying massage therapy educators. 

Allyson opened a private clinical massage therapy practice, and began training with Carey Smith and the Center for Embodied Teacher Education, and Ralph Stephens, assisting him in the classroom since 2009. 

When Ralph, whom Allyson considers mentor, teacher and friend mentioned that he was going to Indianapolis to learn this incredible new therapy called NRT, Allyson jumped at the chance to learn this ground-breaking therapy directly from the innovator himself. She spent 5 years studying and practicing NRT while traveling numerous times to Indianapolis to learn from the originator. 

Allyson lives and works in Williamsburg, VA, as a healing therapist, yoga instructor, and educator. 

She is proud and delighted to be a certified Neural Reset Therapist, and hopes to become a global educator in this field, taking the healing knowledge to people who may not have access to conventional healing therapies. Her first journey on this path will be to Honduras in February 2018.
