Neurobion, in its goal to alleviate neuropathy symptoms such as numbness or loss of
sensation (pamamanhid), muscle weakness (pangangalay), tingling/pins and needles
(tusok-tusok), burning sensation (pag-iinit), and muscle cramps (pamumulikat),
developed The Neuromotion, the moves to love your nerves, is a 2 minute long set of
movements that can give our nerves a break and can be done by anyone, anytime,
anywhere – even in the office where working Filipinos spend most of their time.
“Work schedules can give us little time to care for our health. Knowing this, Neurobion
developed The Neuromotion moves for the workforce that anyone can do, in the office
or at home, that can give our nerves a break in a fun, exciting and memorable way.”
Said Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, Marketing Head of Merck Inc. “The Neuromotion moves can
help us worry less about our nerves and give us more time to do other things” she
The Neuromotion moves was developed by Neurobion in partnership with fitness and
health personality Coach Jules Aquino. Jules is a product of UP Diliman College of
Human Kinetics and a multisport athlete.
The Neuromotion moves was launched recently, in a venue that resembled a modern
office space – through a surprise performance. During the launch, while media and
other guests were enjoying lunch and listening to the resource speaker, guests were
surprised by a performance of internationally renowned and multi awarded dance
groups A-Team and Legit Status. Right after the performance, Coach Jules with event
host Gelli Victor went on to teach the quick, simple, fun and easy to do Neuromotion
moves to the guests.
“We wanted as many people as possible to be familiar with The Neuromotion moves so
we collaborated with a recognized fitness personality and top visual performers to
create an unforgettable show.” Loy Dy-Buncio, Neurobion’s Brand Manager said.
“People who watch the performance will definitely remember The Neuromotion nerve
care moves. It’s only 2 minutes long and can be done by anyone anywhere.”
The launch performance was captured on video and can be seen in the Neurobion

What is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy, a disorder affecting nerves, is experienced by many people in the
Philippines. Despite this high frequency, many men and women who have it are not
even aware of their condition. In fact, nerve health is not a topic that many people
actually think about.
The symptoms of nerve damage, or Neuropathy, are often nothing out of the ordinary.
Numbness, muscle weakness, and pins and needles can be caused by other conditions
as well. In fact, they are often attributed to more mundane causes, such as fatigue or
wrong sleeping position. While these symptoms can indeed be linked to such causes, it
is undeniable that Neuropathy is a possible cause.
Such symptoms are often underestimated therefore sufferers tend to forego seeking
medical advice. Frequently, sufferers report minor discomfort or irritation at their
symptoms and tend to ignore their persistence.
Other possible symptoms of Neuropathy include increased sensitivity to touch, sharp
pains, extreme sensitivity to pain, a burning feeling, reduced sensitivity to pain, loss
of sensation, and reduced sense of touch.
There are also a number of conditions in which nerve damage appears or can be a
secondary complication. Causes and risk factors are multiple and include causes and
conditions such as genetics (carpal tunnel syndrome for example), chronic diseases
(like diabetes), environmental toxins (such as smoking), alcoholism, nutritional
deficiencies (including B Vitamin deficiency), and even side effects of certain
medications. This condition can be idiopathic (have no known cause).
Before symptoms get worse and lead to permanent nerve damage, it is of vital
importance to consult a doctor immediately. Taking daily maintenance for nerve
nourishment may also prevent nerve damage or Neuropathy.
The World’s #1 B Vitamin, Neurobion®, recognizes the importance for nerve care.
Trusted by doctors for over 40 years, Neurobion® has a balanced formulation of
Vitamins B1, B6 and B12 and is clinically proven to nourish the nerves and acts at the
root of the problem.
