Personal Best Pilates Studio now offers NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) to Kansas City!
What is NKT?
David Weinstock, the creator of NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT), describes it as “quick, cost effective treatment for permanent injury rehabilitation. It can bring almost instant results and is very effective in correcting misalignment and poor posture, preventing injury, and enhancing athletic performance”.
Specifically, NKT is a unique body work method that can be used both as an assessment tool and as a rehabilitative technique. It gets to the root of chronic and acute muscular tightness and pain, relieving it through working with the motor control center (MCC) of the brain itself in the cerebellum.
NKT Founder David Weinstock discussing this technique:
Personal Best Pilates Studio recently started offering NKT sessions with Amanda, and our clients’ are already getting profound results.
“Amanda is fantastic. After just one NKT session, and following her exercises for a week, my hand and foot (both of which has bothered me for years) are near 100 % better. I've seen doctors and spent time in rehab centers but nothing helped as much as Amanda”.

Who will benefit from a NKT session with Amanda Jessee?
Anyone who is suffering from pain, either chronic or acute. This includes back, neck and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ, and many other conditions. NKT can also help professional and recreational athletes and dancers of all ages improve their performance. People who have lingering pain resulting from accidents, injuries or surgeries can also benefit from an NKT session.
Is NKT a chiropractic adjustment or physical therapy?
NO! Your NKT session with Amanda will start with a thorough discussion of your complaint, as well as a functional assessment of movement. Next she will conduct a series of very simple muscle tests to identify which muscles are weak and or tight, and, more importantly, any compensation patterns that might have developed. Once she has identified these items, she will give you simple stretches or exercises to reprogram your body to eliminate these compensation patterns. NKT can break old dysfunctional movement patterns, often resulting in immediate and long lasting relief.
Does NKT hurt?
Not at all!
How does NKT work with Pilates?
NKT and Pilates are a perfect combination, as NKT can identify muscle compensation patterns that are hard to identify from just watching movement. An NKT assessment can provide your Pilates instructor with information to help her design the most effective personalized Pilates program.
