The BAX Aura system is much more than just technology. It’s an entire wellness system that fits neatly with the other services Larsen Wellness Center offers. We are very excited to offer this amazing technology to our patients.
At the heart of this amazing technology is Substance Specific Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy
Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy or NSRT provides a novel and unique approach to wellness that is based on proven, accepted science, allowing patients who generally have very few if any treatment options to experience symptomatic relief.

Our technology and science are based on four facts:
- Stress causes or exacerbates most health related conditions.
- The brain creates associations between stressful events and substances.
- A general reduction of stress levels can significantly decrease symptoms of many conditions.
- If these associations can be broken, by introducing a positive stimulus in conjunction with the specific stress inducing substance… symptoms can be reduced or eliminated.
Q: What is NSRTSM or Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy?
A: Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy incorporates Meridian and Energy Stress Assessment (MESA) Technology, Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), nutritional and herbal supplementation as well as complex homeopathic medications to increase core level energy, promote healthy and natural detoxification and bring the body back to balance.
Q: What is MESA Technology?
A: MESA Technology uses skin level readings to help to assess which environmental, chemical and food substances cause stress on the body.
Q: What is the foundation for NSRTSM?
A: NSRTSM combines (3) core components of holistic medicine and modern computerized technology to create a revolutionary new therapy.
Acupuncture is a form of 5000 year old Chinese medicine that is based on the flow of energy along meridians in the body or what we refer to today as the body’s energetic system. The meridian energy flow or chi carries information about the body’s internal organs that can be utilized in assessment of organ function, system function, metabolism, general stasis and even the reactive nature of the body to specific environmental substances.
Q: How does NSRTSM utilize the principles of acupuncture?
A: NSRTSM utilizes a biofeedback based methodology to perform skin level meridian and energy stress assessment (MESA) much the same way an EKG would measure heart rate. Sensors are placed on the skin allowing the BAX System to detect increases in neurological stress as a result of environmental substance exposure. The assessment process used in NSRTSM is a fully automated, computerized and objective method of measuring the same types of organ and system function traditionally performed by acupuncturists. What makes this revolutionary is that the NSRTSM assessment process takes approximately less than 10 minutes, requires no needles, is safe for all ages and is completely non-invasive.
Homeopathy is a 300 year old medical discipline developed in Germany. Homeopathic medicine is based on the theory that “like cures like”. Homeopathic medicine suggests that a dilution of the substance allows the body to build up a tolerance or resistance and enables the body to heal itself. Homeopathy is often referred to as “Vibrational Medicine”.
Q: How does NSRTSM incorporate homeopathy into the therapeutic procedure?
A: During assessment, NSRTSM introduces vibrational or homeopathic types of frequencies for thousands of substances, measures the stress response and then records the neurological response to each.
NSRTSM then incorporates low level light therapy (LLLT) to induct vibrational frequencies that the brain can interpret in the same manner it would interpret the physical substance itself to neutralize the stress response.
- Applied Kinesiology
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a form of alternative medicine that provides neurological evaluation using muscle tests to monitor the physiological response to physical, chemical or mental stimuli. The belief is that when a person experiences poor health, it is due to imbalance in the body’s physical, chemical or mental state. AK is a practice that has been in existence for over 50 years and is practiced by many chiropractors and physicians in the US, Canada and Europe. AK is limited because it is considered to be highly subjective in nature, extremely time consuming and dependent upon the training and acumen of the physician.
Examples of AK or Applied Kinesiology include:
• Brimhall Technique
• NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique)
Q: How does NSRTSM incorporate Applied Kinesiology into the assessment procedure?
A: Applied Kinesiology and NSRTSM have an indirect relationship. AK is often used for nutrient testing to examine the patients muscle response to specific chemicals and substances. NSRTSM which incorporates Meridian and Energy Stress Assessment Technology (MESA) offers the same type of assessment by measuring a stress response based on conductivity of the skin. MESA however, does this without the time or muscle manipulation required with AK. MESA Technology is a fully automated, computerized and objective format for measuring the stress response to substances presented through more traditional and clinically accepted biofeedback. BAX Systems are able to determine:
• Which substances cause stress on the body
• The strength of the stress response in correlation to the specific substance
• Stress placed on organs and systems by the cumulative substance stressors
Q: How does NSRTSM and MESA Technology Measure Substance Stressors?
A: MESA is an assessment technique that measures electrical resistance and polarization at the acupuncture points and meridians. Through safe, skin-level measurements, it is possible to analyze the bio-energy and bio-information produced by all of the body’s internal organs and systems. MESA is a form of biofeedback.
NSRTSM incorporates your physician’s assessment of patient history, family history, presenting symptom and physical examination as well as information learned during the Meridian and Energy Stress Assessment to determine the appropriate course of patient care.
Q: Can these substance frequencies cause any type of physical reaction?
A: No. NSRTSM uses a proprietary low level light therapy process that is not capable of causing a physical reaction regardless of the pathology.
Q: Does the assessment or therapy hurt?
A: No. The vast majority of patients report no sensation or feeling whatsoever during the assessment or therapeutic process. A very small number of patients that tend to be highly sensitive have reported a mild tingling sensation or a general calming of the body. This is the standard result of light therapy.
Q: What can I expect during the substance stress assessment?
A: The assessment process is fast, painless, non-invasive and will take less than 10 minutes. During the assessment, The BAX System will introduce, measure and assess hundreds of individual substance frequencies helping your physician determine what environmental, food or chemical triggers may be impacting your overall health.
Q: How many substances can the BAX Systems assess?
A: The BAX Systems contain homeopathic frequencies for tens of thousands of individual substances including foods, chemicals, inhalants, pets, drugs and even synthetic products.
Q: Does the BAX System assess all of the frequencies at once?
A: No. The BAX Systems are designed to assess groups of substances based on protocols, patient history and patient reported symptoms.
Q: How many patient visits are required?
A: The number of patient visits directly corresponds to the care plan required for the patient. Protocols are in place that determine the number of visits based on what your body needs and your general state of health. The most common is referred to as the IDE (Immunity, Detoxification and Energy) Protocol and takes a total of 10 quick and easy visits.
Q: How long do the results of therapy last?
A: The therapeutic results of NSRTSM are indefinite. BAX systems have been used in practice since 2007 and both doctors and patients report no symptomatic recurrence for patients at both 1 year and 2 year checkups. The addition of patient supplementation has improved support during therapy as well as maintaining long term health and wellness.
Q: How long does each office visit take?
A: Each office visit should take a total of 10-15 minutes and can be completed over the course of about 3 weeks.
Q: Does NSRTSM have any side effects that I should be aware of?
A: No. NSRTSM does not have any side effects. During therapy, however, the body is going through a process of conditioning which can cause some mild expressions of detoxification. Patients report that following therapy they have draining of the sinuses, mild sinus congestion, mild headaches and/or itchy skin. These symptoms typically last only a few hours. Patient’s commonly report increased energy and longer periods of uninterrupted sleep immediately following therapy.
Q: Can the substance frequency cause any type of allergic reaction?
A: No. Exposure to the vibrational frequency cannot trigger any type of allergic reaction.
Q: Does this biofeedback based assessment test for allergies?
A: No. While many of the frequencies stored in the computer library are known allergens, many of the substances assessed are not allergens. NSRTSM assessment is looking for a stress response to a specific substance and is not an allergy test. Because allergens cause stress on the body however, the NSRT assessment will in many cases identify known allergens for patients.
Q: What conditions or symptoms does NSRTSM diagnose or treat?
A: None. NSRTSM does not diagnose or treat any specific symptoms or conditions. NSRTSM is not concerned with specific conditions or labels and focuses on providing holistic and complimentary alternative therapy. Homeopathy, however, does have stated benefits for allergies, asthma, skin conditions, migraine pain, digestive discomfort and arthritis and is one of the cornerstones for our technology. Through the process of detoxification, increasing core energy levels and bringing the body back to balance, patients report a general improvement in overall health and well being.
Q: Is this similar to NAETSM (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique)?
A: Yes. NSRTSM in many ways is the evolution of NAET providing an exponentially faster, objective, more effective and automated advancement to the NAET process.
Q: When should I expect to see symptomatic improvement?
A: Doctors and patients report symptomatic improvement after only 1-2 visits. This will vary from patient to patient based on severity of health related issues, as well as the results of the stress assessment.
Q: Is NSRTSM safe for children?
A: Yes. NSRTSM is safe for all ages. NSRTSM is non-invasive, does not use any chemicals, pills, shots or needles. Please speak to your doctor about appropriate dosing and products for your child as well as reading all labels prior to use.
Q: Does insurance cover assessment and therapy?
A: No. NSRTSM is not covered by traditional insurance, but that should not be a deterrent for you to get the care you need and deserve.
- First, the cost of the therapy is typically less than the cost of traditional medical care over time.
- Second, by taking proper care of yourself and alleviating the actual cause of your symptoms, you can prevent future health care expenses.
- Third, you may be able to use HSA (Health Savings Account) to cover care. This is up to the provider and varies from plan to plan and state to state.
