I have trained in a new system
of treatment called: Primal Reflex Release Technique (PRRT).
PPRT is very gentle but quite effective. It is based on the
premise that our Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is being hyperactive
due to the up-regulation of a few primal reflexes we are born
with namely the:
- Startle Reflex
- Withdrawal Reflex
- Joint Protection Reflex
up-regulation triggers hyper-firing of the Sympathetic Nervous
System resulting in increased tone of the musculature; beyond
what is necessary in a resting state. This process drives the
tight muscle/pain syndrome (trigger regions) and by finding
and down-regulating these trigger regions the Autonomic Nervous
System can return to a state of normalcy - thereby allowing
the individual to attain pain free living.
clients have seen benefits right after their first session.
Some comments from my clients included:
- "Wow! I've never had
that much range of motion in my neck"
- "You're kidding the calf
pain is gone, it has been there for weeks"
- The headache I had when I
came is completely gone and I feel calm and energized"
- "Hey, my jaw does not
hurt to open, and I can swallow without feeling like I am
....the list goes on.
The founder of the system; John
Iams claims PRRT works very quickly, he says if you don't feel
substantial change after four session then the therapy is not
for you; it either works quickly or fails quickly, this way
you don't have to spend prolonged time on it wondering if it
will work for you.
I am convinced of the benefits
of this therapy and this is reflected in the paradigm shift
I have taken in dealing with patients coming to see me for musculoskeletal
