Dr.Lajpat Rai Mehra’s Neurotherapy
“Ayurvedic” Neurotherapy, “Nadi Mardan Kriya” is an ancient Indian rehabilitative therapy based on the Vedic principles & philosophy. This natural healing therapy deals with nerves, muscles, joints and blood & lymphatic channels. Authorities in the field believe that the body is co-ordinate by three different humors or energy forces as Vata (air) pitta (bile) and kapha (water). Neurotherapy helps in restoring and balancing the energy forces of the body that regulates the physiological equilibrium to perform better function of the body mind spirit.
Ayurveda deals almost in all branches of medical science. ‘Nadi Vigyan’ (knowledge of nervous system) is one of them that have developed neurotherapy thousands of years ago. Neurotherapy has always been used in ayurvedic medicine as a rehabilitative treatment known by different names. Some of the traditional names by which of ayurvedic neurotherapy is known in India, ‘Ladara’ in north India and as ‘Kerala Massage’ in the south. Ayurvedic Neurotherapy was re-pioneered by Mr. Lajpatrai Mehra in Bombay India. The term Neurotherapy (neuro means nadi or nerves; therapy is application), was coined in 1950’s. “Ayurvedic” Neurotherapy, places chief emphasis upon the organism’s integrity of the body’s mechanism as being the most important factor in the maintenance of health.
All the courses of Neurotherapy “Nadi Vigyan” are based on the curriculum provided by The
Federation of Neurotherapy classified the Level course as Credit 10 & Level 2 as Credit 15.
The Level 1 Certificate course teaches the skills to give a good quality, safe Neurotherapy treatment but has limitations and restrictions on its application. The certificate is recognition of competence to practice Neurotherapy using the approach of the diagnostic and treatment principles specific to Neurotherapy. There will be a written and practical exam at the end of the course. Students will need to have successfully passed this and submit the minimum of 25 case studies before the Certificate can be awarded.
The Federation recognizes that the role of a practitioner is complex and involves many additional skills. With this in mind the Registered Practitioner Course (Level 2) is offered to students wishing to become a fully-fledged professional practitioner.
The aim of the Level 2 practitioner’s course is to consolidate the Neurotherapy skills learnt on the Certificate course and integrate a deeper understanding and practice of this Indian Medicine system.
The clinical apprenticeship program is the fundamental component of the Level 2 professional practitioners’ course. “Student Clinics” are frequently held at the latter part of the course. These days provide the focus for “live” practice session on paying clients under the supervision of the teacher. Students will observe firsthand the diagnosis and treatment of clients by experienced practitioners. They will get a direct and vivid impression of how to apply their own skills in a clinical situation. Gradually, the students will assume responsibility for individual clients and receive direction and feedback from the teacher in managing each case. At the end of the course there will be a written and practical exam followed by a viva voce.
