Information

Orthoflexology - Structural Reflex Science

Orthoflexology is a structural reflex science. Orthoflexology will facilitate the healing potential by returning muscle, bony landmarks, and articulations to their normal R.O.M., combined with the unblocking of the reflex terminals in the feet.

Is it possible to use the science of reflexology to consistently turn off back pain completely in 5 minutes?

The evidence in this video supports the fact that it is possible!

I have personally witnessed this same outcome thousands of times in my practice.This video demonstrates the effectiveness of applying pressure to create an analgesic effect within the body.

I have witnessed this same outcome many, many times. If you are looking for results in the real world then reflexology is a great treatment protocol to consider.

New Release!
Orthoflexology: Ultimate Low Back & Hip

Over 35 minutes on the DVD

Orthoflexology is an amazing treatment protocol of the future.Orthoflexology provides the precision of an osteopath, as well as the skills of soft tissue chiropractic, zone therapy, orthopedic therapy and reflexology.
 
Orthoflexology uses the principles of manual medicine to provide one of the most fascinating and diverse treatments available in the world today.
 
Orthopedic Therapy:
This aspect of the video will empower the practitioner to indentify the anatomical imbalances associated with pelvic imbalance. This section also includes the application of M.E.T. muscle energy technique and how it relates to correcting the anatomical imbalances presented by the receiver. In this portion of the video the fractioned will view the application of M.E.T. on a live subject which includes how you may effectively correct any P.S.I.S. imbalance (high right/left hip), sacral rotations both right/left, A.S.I.S imbalances both right and left, as well as the correction of leg length differentials on either the right or left leg. The information has been simplified to make it extremely user friendly for the practitioner.
 
Soft Tissue Twisting:
This aspect of the video will empower the practitioner with a highly effective protocol in treating tender points as well as trigger points within the receiver’s body. The information within this portion of the video describes how the practitioner can use the longitudinal zone lines to turn off pain in any soft tissue attachment of the body; this includes all muscles, ligaments, tendons. With the S.T.T. protocol the practitioner will be able to effectively turn off soft tissue pain completely as simply as one could turn off a light switch. This aspect of the video will simply amaze you with the simplicity and effectiveness in which you can turn off painful patterns within the receiver’s body. Once you have mastered this portion, you will never have to work as hard again. If you are looking to work smarter not harder, and facilitate results that that you never thought were possible, then I invite you to invest in this video, you will never look at bodywork in the same way again.
 
Reflex Zone Therapy:
This portion of the video demonstrates how the practitioner can effectively use the RZT protocol to completely turn off back and hip pain simply by using the principles described within. This portion includes the principles of thumb/finger walking techniques, how to perform 2 of the RZT relaxation techniques that are associated with hip and back pain, as well as the clinical application of how to treat the spinal reflex areas which includes the cervical/thoracic, lumbar, sacral, coccyx areas of the feet. This segment of the video also empowers the practitioner with the knowledge of how to treat the pelvic/hip, hip sciatic, and knee/leg reflex areas of the receiver’s feet. This portion of the video alone is highly effective in treating low back and hip problems without the application of orthopedic therapy or soft tissue twisting.

New Release!
Orthoflexology: Zone Therapy - Application for the Hands

Zone therapy was founded and developed by Dr William Fitzgerald. Dr Fitzgerald developed and perfected the use of static pressure in regards to the longitudinal zone lines of the body, five zones on the right side, five zones on the left side, with a total of ten lines. Dr Fitzgerald stated in one of his books that there are innumerable zone lines throughout the body; however he simplified his system for practical purposes to make it user friendly for the practitioner.
 
This video discusses the principles of zone therapy and how it relates to the application of the hands. This video provides the practitioner with a view of the zone lines of the body, and discusses the relationship of the zone lines and how they relate to different aspects of the body. The contents of this video will also describe for the practitioner the relationship of the digits (fingers) and how they correspond to the anterior aspect of the body, the posterior aspect of the body, as well as the medial and lateral aspects of the body.

This video also provides the practitioner with practical applications on a live subject, and how each specific application corresponds to different painful conditions that may be presented in you clinical setting. The information in this video will empower the practitioner to effectively turn of pain anywhere in the body simply by providing static compressive force to the distal joint space of each digit. The information in this video will assist the practitioner in effectively treating 65 - 70% of the population in the world today.
 
If you are looking for an amazing and effective application that can be done anywhere and anytime without the use of a table of any other equipment, then this video is a must for you.

Pain is a sign produced by dehydration in the body. It is easier for the body to deal with a slight surplus of water than to suffer from its shortfall and to have to ration and allocate water to vital organs at the expense of less vital functions in the body. The tragedy of waiting to get thirsty hits home when it is realized that the sharpness of thirst perception is gradually lost as we get older!
 

The human body manifests its water shortage by 4 categories of conditions:  Perceptive feelings, drought management programs, crisis calls, and complications of persistent dehydration.

Perceptive feelings of water shortage include: tiredness, anxiety, agitation, shortness of temper, depression, sleep disorders, cravings for soda, alcohol and hard drugs are some of the ways the brain reflects its water conservation and water regulation problems.

 

The drought management problems are: constipation, allergies, asthma, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and the auto immune diseases.

 

Crisis calls include: heartburn, rheumatoid joint pain, back pain, migraine headache, colitis pain, fibromyalgia pains, and angina pain.

Complications of dehydration are very extensive and include: obesity, hemorrhoids, cholesterol plaques and arteriole disease, type 1 diabetes, as well as neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, neuritis, phlebitis, lymphomas, cancers and many more.

 


DRINKING TIPS FOR HEALTHY HYDRATION:

*It is very important you balance your sodium intake with your water consumption. Take 1/4 teaspoon of salt per quart of water - every 4-5 glasses of water. Be sure to get sea salt. The best is Celtic sea salt or Himalayan sea salt, both of which are readily available at any health food store.


You should always drink water prior to eating, and after eating, to support the digestive process. The stomach depends on water to help digest food, and lack of water makes it harder for nutrients to be broken down and used as energy. The liver, which dictates where all nutrients go, also needs water to help convert stored fat into usable energy. If you are dehydrated, the kidneys turn to the liver for backup, diminishing the liver’s ability to metabolize stored fat. The resulting reduced blood volume will interfere with your body’s ability to remove toxins and supply your cells with adequate nutrients.
Keep a water bottle by your side at all the times. Use either bottled water or tap water, and carry it with you everywhere, to the gym, in your car, to your office. Start by adding water to your daily regiment, during the first week, and then incorporate more as needed. The point is not to wait until you’re thirsty to drink.
Keep water flowing before, during and after workout. Don’t forget to balance your water intake with sodium intake. Drink at least 1 liter of water for every 60 minutes of exercise. Drink more if it’s hot. During exercise, such as playing sport on a hot summer day, you can lose up to 2 liters per hour of fluid per hour. Water and a balance salt is your best bet to keep healthy and hydrated. During exercise, it is recommended to replenish fluid at least every 20 minutes.
 

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU’RE DEHYDRATED?

If you are thirsty, it means your cells are already dehydrated. A dry mouth should be regarded as the last outward sign of dehydration. That’s because thirst does not develop until body fluids are depleted well bellow levels required for optimal functioning.
Monitor your urine to make sure you are not dehydrated:
  • A hydrated body produces clear, colorless urine.
  • A somewhat dehydrated body produces yellow urine.
  • A severely dehydrated body produces orange or dark-colored urine.
The effects of even mild dehydration include decreased coordination, fatigue, dry skin, decreased urine output, dry mucous membranes in the mouth and nose, blood pressure changes and impairment of judgment. Stress, headache, back pain, allergies, asthma, high blood pressure and many degenerative health problems are the result of UCD (Unintentional Chronic Dehydration).

HOW MUCH WATER DO YOU NEED TO DRINK? WHEN TO DRINK?

To better determine how much water you need each day, divide your body weight in half. The answer is the approximate number of water ounces you should drink daily. You should drink half of your body weight in ounces. If you weight 200 pounds, you should drink 100 ounces water (3.13 quarts, 2.98 liters or about 10-12 cups of water a day). If you weigh closer to 100 pounds you will need only about 50 ounces of water or about four 12-ounce glasses daily.
Individuals who are physically active or live in hot climates may needs to drink more.
 
Start your morning’s right: Morning is when you are most full of toxin and dehydrated. Reach for a big glass of water first thing in the morning – even before coffee. This water in the morning really gets the blood flowing.
-Drink a glass of water when you get up and another when you go to bed.
-Take regular water break breaks.
-Avoid relying on sodas to provide your fluid need.
-Drink water before and after food; ideally drink a glass of water half an hour before you eat your meal and half an hour after the meal. You can drink water with meals, and drink water anytime your body feels like it.

When it comes to feeling our personal best, have we considered many of the factors that contribute to our overall well being? If we want to improve on our quality of life we may want to look at our level of hydration, our diet habits, our stressors, and repetitive use patterns.

The most important element that sustains our life is oxygen; the second most important element is water. It is estimated that we are 70% water and 30% cellular matter. It seems reasonable to conclude that optimal health is related to our overall hydration level. It is estimated that we should drink half our weight in ounces each day. Example: 100 pounds divided by 2 = 50 ounces per day. We lose water each day through respiration, tears, sweating, urination, defecation, diuretics, etc… If we are well hydrated our nerves will communicate better, our soft tissues will be more pliable, and we will experience less fatigue, as well as better performance. Most of us shower each day to clean the outside of our body, but how often do we consider showering the inside of our body? One of the keys to optimal health is being conscious of how well our tissues are hydrated!

Let’s look at our diet for a moment, specifically alkaline vs. acidic. To simplify this, all of the fresh fruits and vegetables uncooked are alkalizing, it has been suggested that 80% of our diet should consist of alkalizing foods. We can say that most of the other foods we eat are acidifying, it has been suggested that our diet should be limited to 20% of these foods. As we become aware (educate ourselves) of what we are actually putting into our bodies, alkalizing vs. acidic, we now empower ourselves with the knowledge to improve our quality of life from the diet choices we make.


It is estimated that the majority of our dis-ease is related to stress. We understand that any condition we are facing will only be complicated by stress. It is unfortunate that we will always have to battle some form of stress in our current life, however we can learn to manage our stress so it won’t overcome us. We can say that quiet time and laughter will assist us in managing our stress levels. We can also say that our associations will also affect our stress levels, so we may want to choose our associates carefully. By keeping a positive outlook, we can certainly turn lemons into lemonade!

It is reasonable to say we are all creatures of habit, and we tend to use many of the same repetitive patterns each day. As we continue to use these patterns we tend to shorten muscles or groups of muscles that eventually pull our body out of alignment or balance. If we continue to shorten certain muscles for a long enough period of time, we will experience the negative effects of these repetitive patterns. These effects can include decreased range of motion, fatigue, and pain. Most of us wear these distortions each day and continually fight our bodies to move, more and more as we age. By investing time and effort in our soft tissue health we can be sure that our quality of life will improve. We may want to ask ourselves; when is the last time I had a good tune up? Yes, when is the last time I had every, gland, organ and part of my body tuned up? You may want to consider investing in your soft tissue health, you’re worth it!!!
