Your Body Has Reset Buttons

Because the body is electrical in nature, the nervous system will often pop a ‘circuit-breaker’ when there has been over-use, injury or chronic stress causing a muscle or series of muscles to stop working optimally. Knowing where the reset buttons are to restore the energy flow can be a game-changer.

If you are a therapist who isn’t aware of this circuitry, you may fail to permanently resolve physical issues because few or no messages are getting to the tissues that are in trouble because neurological messages aren’t being delivered and affected areas cannot respond appropriately.

For individuals who practice manual muscle testing these areas are easy to identify. The process basically involves positioning a limb in a certain manner to isolate a contracted muscle and then attempting to push it along its range of motion while asking the client to keep their limb at the start position. When neurological signalling has been disrupted, the limb will not...

3 Self-Care Techniques = Massive Results

flexibility pain self-care Aug 31, 2019

I’ve been telling people all week that everybody can be stronger and have less tension, PRONTO by using our techniques. This Thursday evening I was given another opportunity to prove this belief.

I arrived 10 minutes early for a group coaching session and one of the attendees asked for my help because he couldn’t move his head. Seemed pretty serious because it  barely rotated an inch off of center. You could see he was sitting with a lot of tension in his back and shoulders and his face didn’t look too happy either. It seemed pretty uncomfortable so I agreed to see what could be done before the class began.

I chose three of our among our greatest home-run techniques.  First I thoroughly performed the ‘Circuit Breaker Reset’ for about two minutes. This is a quick-fix for increasing flexibility in the spine. Then I did the ‘Neck Tension Release' for another two minutes because ear cartilage contains numerous postural...

Is That Tension You're Feeling .... Natural?

Yesterday I met with a client with a 'different' kind of concern. John felt that his scalp was too tight and it was causing him to lose his hair. He wondered if there was something we could do to help him release the tension at the top of his head because he knew we advertise that we tune up muscles. 

All I could say was: "Let's see what we can do" and proceeded to check various muscles. Without boring you with great detail but still giving you a glimpse of the marvel of body engineering, we used a technique for locating priority imbalances and found that we had to start with resetting walking reflexes in his feet, then we had to assess a hip muscle which needed activation of some reflexes at the top of his neck in order for the hip and feet receptors to have proper communication with his nervous system. Then we could assess communication patterns between four specific sets of connective tissues and muscles in the area...

Results from Working with Just Two Muscles!

We have a Muscle Tuner® Specialist named Laurie who has been working with a friend who agreed to explore the results of focussing on just a couple of muscles, rather than working with numerous muscles from head to foot as is normally practiced. 

The friend has experienced extremely tight quadriceps muscles for years and regular massage therapy appointments over the last three months temporarily helped but didn't solve the problem. 

Laurie wanted to research the change in flexibility and range of motion possible with working with just a few key leg muscles. The experiment was to have this volunteer activate reflexes on her own at home daily for ten days. She was directed to observe her range of motion before and after activating the reflexes for the quadriceps and the opposing hamstrings.

The result was that this person's quadriceps muscles are now able relax enough and the hamstrings can tighten up enough so that she...

Tuning for Recovery at the Gym

A client met me at the gym last week for some  Muscle Tuning™. She has met me at my office several times in the past, and those sessions have been very helpful. She said she was ready to challenge her body and wanted someone standing by to support her as she begins working out with equipment at the gym. She was somewhat fearful of hurting herself further by performing exercises if some of her muscles weren't firing properly yet. 

We didn't do the Primary or Secondary Muscle Tune Up Protocol which we perform for most people. I offered a highly customized session to help her recover from an injury. She is currently fully supported with great physiotherapy, however, there have been some muscles that have been extremely stubborn to return to proper function. She asked if switching on muscles throughout a gym workout could be helpful. Of course I let her know that's one of the best ways of demonstrating the instantly...

Flexibility Increased!

Okay, so that's not a picture of me attached to this post. Did it get your attention though?

I've been struggling with a particular stretch similar to the one above but with the opposite arm reaching up from below to touch fingertips between the shoulder blades.

I've been posting social media images that our methods not only improve strength, they improve flexibility also. I wondered, if I could do that for other people like Andrea (first video on this link),  couldn't I focus on the flexibility component for myself too? I thought about which muscles were involved in the movement. I moved my left arm then my right arm around in various ways (fitting right in with everyone else in the stretching area at the back of the gym, of course).

I tested four muscles I suspected were involved. The Middle Trapezius was okay, but not the Lower Traps. They unlocked one one side so I activated reflexes on the front and back of the body for about 20 seconds each. Then...

Who Knew?

Who knew that a little pressure on a Neuro-lymphatic Reflex point would make such a difference?

Recently my business partner, Denise, and I were in a photo shoot with Spenser Chapple (photographer) and Keegan McMahon (the model).  The goal of the day was to walk away with pictures and videos of 50+ muscle tests.  The starting position for Subscapularis was a challenge for Keegan, so we asked him if we could rub the lymphatic spots on the front & back of his body (T2-T3).  He said yes and we did.  Then we carried on with the other muscles. 

Once finished the “still shots” we moved onto shooting the videos.  Once again Keegan put his limbs into the start position of the muscle tests.  When we got to the previously challenging subscapularis muscle test, Keegan’s arm went into position with ease!  Keegan and Spenser were impressed and we were ALL amazed even though Denise and I regularly see these types of results.  We...
