EXceptional Perception (video below)
The human nervous system DETECTS far more stimuli than an individual is AWARE of. Most health practitioners occasionally experience moments when they are able to sense things that cannot be perceived through their 'standard' five senses. A relatively small percentage of gifted individuals learn how to cultivate this expanded awareness sensing skill so they can access it at any time.
During the 1980’s investigators began to examine this sensing phenomenon from a neuroscientific point of view. The remarkable outcome of this research yielded insights that enable most individuals to quickly expand their range of awareness. The getACCESS! Workshop evolved out this research.
2 Kinds of Stimuli = 2 Types of Responses
During palpation, a practitioner's nervous system detects a mixture of conscious stimuli and 'subthreshold' (non-conscious) stimuli. The practitioner's nervous system responds differently to each type of stimulus.
When the nervous system detects ‘standard’ stimuli, it responds by producing 'standard' sensory responses. By comparison, when the nervous system detects 'subthreshold' stimuli it responds by producing specific autonomic and central nervous system responses - which the practitioner is (normally) not aware of. These responses may involve changes in brainwave activity; heart rate; muscle tone; respiration; sudomotor activity, etc.
Figure 1 shows normal brainwave activity while assessing a patient. Figure 2 shows EEG responses produced in a practitioner when subthreshold dysfunctional changes are detected in a patient's physiology.
Subthreshold Awareness significantly Enhances a Practitioner's 'Range of Perception' & Sensitivity.
The getACCESS! Workshop teaches practitioners how to quickly enhance their awareness of specific responses their nervous system produces - when it detects 'sub-threshold' changes in a patient's physiology. As part of the workshop, practitioners will have the opportunity to work with electronic enhancing tools to help accelerate awareness development.
Subthreshold awareness skills enable a practitioner to significantly increase the specificity of assessment and corrective procedures. The getACCESS! Workshop favors the use of low force corrective inputs. The workshop also teaches a corrective approach that uses the ArthroStim instrument by IMPAC.
