Our focus is Neurostructural Optimisation

The life you’re experiencing and the way you feel right now are both a direct reflection of what’s happening in your nervous system.

Neurostructural Optimisation is a process that gently teaches your nervous system to correct and realign your body from the inside out – without forceful cracking or twisting.

Foundation’s Neurostructural Optimisation combines contemporary neuroscience with your body’s natural healing ability. Providing a fresh, scientific solution to holistic health.

Conventional chiropractors and physical therapies typically focus on temporary pain relief, increasing range of motion or reducing muscular spasm, and can have good results with these Secondary Conditions.

Foundation focuses on the PRIMARY Condition

Do you have one or more of these Secondary Conditions?..


Muscle tension
Fatigue and low energy
Chronic pain
Poor posture
Recurring injuries
Restricted joint movement
Anxiousness, lack of clarity
Disconnection, trouble focusing
Performance down, slow recovery
Feeling stuck, seeking more

There is a PRIMARY Condition common to all of these…  

Neurostructural Shift


Everyone understands the importance of keeping things in tune. Leaving your car out of tune only ever leads to more costly secondary problems.

Your body can also go out of tune from daily physical, chemical and mental-emotional stress.


Unlike a car, you have a nervous system that self-corrects your body to a healthy tune, without you even noticing. This ability to automatically self-correct is your foundation for a healthy, happy, successful life.


But your nervous system evolved in nature, and we now live in a human zoo. The difference between those two environments is a problem. It confuses your nervous system, causing the stresses of modern life to become ‘stuck’, retained in the body way past its use-by date.


As that Physically Retained Stress accumulates, it obstructs self-correction. Allowing the body to shift further and further out of tune. This is a  Neurostructural Shift.


Neurostructural Shifts compromise health, eventually leading to the myriad of Secondary Conditions (see above), that stop you living the life you want.


Major indicators of a Neurostructural Shift include reduced performance and clarity, chronic pain, tension, fatigue and postural imbalances.





Researched and refined over 30 years, Foundation’s unique Neurostructural Optimisation works with your body to address the Primary Condition.

Instead of forceful cracking and twisting, Neurostructural Optimisation uses sequences of precise fingertip contacts, gently applied to specific points along the spine. These inputs focus your brain’s attention to the patterns of Physically Retained Stress.

It’s a process where each contact, and each session, builds on the previous one. Guiding your nervous system to resolve layers of Physically Retained Stress and build the new sensory motor strategies required to shift to a more optimal state.

You learn to become an active participant in your own healing process, discovering how to use the subtle movements and changes in breath that assist in self-correction and built neurostructural integrity.





Peer reviewed published
research found here shows this process may reduce pain, tension, anxiety, illness, headaches, depression, and reliance on medications. Improving energy, focus, posture, flexibility, relaxation, resilience, confidence and ability to cope with stress.



The Research


Irvine University medical college  studied more than 2800 patients receiving this gentle work, finding statistically significant improvements with:

– Physical State

– Mental-Emotional state

– Response to stress

– Overall Quality of Life

University of Southern California has been investigating how this work improves nervous system coherence, creating a more robust and efficient nervous system. Further studies are also occurring across 6 other Universities.
