Healing Chronic Physical & Emotional Pain [1915]

This presentation will review the basis of Chiropractic medicine and Mind-Body medicine with its application to development of the Emotional Trauma Release Technique. In summary, this technique is the coalescence of Chiropractic theory of the nerve system, Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, specific reflexes related to emotions, the heart chakra, and specific breathing techniques developed by Dr. Benton. Peer reviewed articles are included in this ground-breaking presentation. Live demonstrations of audience participants are included in this interactive presentation. The Chiropractic medicine review includes how the nervous system is wired, how to identify blocks in the nervous system using muscle testing, and the introduction of Applied Kinesiology muscle testing technology. The mind-body medicine review includes Historical review of genetics, Epigenetics, overview of the origins of endocrinology through psycho-neuro-immunology (PNEI). Evolutionary discussion of mind-body-heart connection, discussion of the ‘startle reflex’ and its involvement in storing traumatic events. The final portion of the presentation involves live demonstration on AIHM participants, provided they give their permission. The technique will be explained and AIHM attendees will be invited to work on their seat mates or on themselves with the easy to learn technique.
