The human body is made up of nerves, bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, vessels, lymph, and connective tissue. The muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, and bones all push and pull at each other so we can walk upright, move, and dance.

As long as tensegrity in the human body is good, then our body is working at its best because it is its most stable and is functioning well.

If tensegrity in the human body is not good, then our bodies are unstable and function poorly. Mechanical failure occurs, which leads to inappropriate cell signals.

According to Dr. Ingber in 2008 in his article "Tensegrity and mechanotransduction", your cells respond faster to a mechanical signal than a chemical signal. It was concluded that "various forms of movement can indeed influence cellular activities, including cell growth, differentiation, and potentially even immune cell responses." Ingber also wrote that "[c]hemicals and genes are absolutely of critical importance; however, they are governed by mechanical forces as well as chemical cues."

A study by Meyer, Alenghat, et al in 2000 in Nature Cell Biology found that mechanical stress at the cell surface caused a release of chemical signals inside the cell to kick it into action.

Dr. Ingber in 2008 wrote in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies that your cell has a receptor that is able to receive a mechanical signal. Not only that, but this mechanical signal can be converted into chemical. The mechanical signal can even affect how your genes are expressed!

Let's take these concepts from the cellular level and apply it to the whole body.

Tensegrity is a bunch of parts pushing and pulling at each other to create tension so the structure as a whole is at its most stable and able to function at its best.

Dr. Donald Ingber found that tensegrity occurs in all people all the way down to the cellular level. Each cell relies on tension within itself so it can function at its best.

Dr. Donald Ingber also felt that disease could result from mechanical failure. Mechanical failure means the tension isn't correctly distributed. This leads to instability of the structure and poor function.

At Neurotensegrity Wellness Center, neurotensegrity is the interrelation of all of the structures of the human body that allow the body to function at its optimum potential with the recognition that the nervous system plays a key role in keeping the entire system functioning.

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.
