In 2004, Jim started working with trigger points and the effective method of ‘dry needling’ to release them. He became fascinated in this method however this method was incomplete in his opinion. Therefore Jim further studied the anatomy and designed his own needling method.
Jim truly believed that a human body does not need more than 2-3 treatments to get better without pain and back to 100% function in the muscles. The body does the rest! Therefore he went deeper into its physiology and anatomy and discovered new points in the nervous system that sits inside the muscles and fascia. From his experience and continuous study Jim discovered another form of ‘Trigger Points’ or ‘nodular knots’ in the muscles and fascia that has not been studied before. Jim defined them as ‘Nerve Locks’.
He believed these Nerve Locks are the key to truly fixing chronic musculoskeletal pains. In the years to come and over 50,000 case studies, Jim developed the ‘Bostock Needle Technique’ (BNT). Described as his ‘reset’ method rebooting your neuromuscular system back to a normal state after being shut down by pain and dysfunction for so long.
