The CAN Assessment


Do you get amazing results sometimes and other times things just don’t seem to resolve? Do you ever wonder why?


Are you ever uncertain which is really the best area to focus on and which area(s) would be better off left alone?


Have you ever had patients/clients tell you that they felt much better after the first few visits… but now nothing is happening? Have you ever stared at a patient’s/client’s file and not known what to do next?


These are common experiences in practice. Let’s face it, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out what the next step should be. At times like this, new insights about a problem can play an essential role in clarifying choices and producing results.


The good news is that a 'second opinion' resource is available. Unfortunately, many practitioners have never learned how to reliably get access to this resource, so they can't take advantage of the opportunities it offers.


Better results start with better insights: the CAN assessment advantage...


When the nervous system first detects a stimulus, it evaluates the stimulus to determine if it's harmful or helpful. This assessment is essential to survival, so it’s hard-wired into the autonomic nervous system. As a result, the Central Autonomic Network / CAN assessment operates automatically, non-stop and, mostly, outside of awareness - like heart beat and blood flow.


Given the fact the CAN assessment is always running in the background, anytime a practitioner assesses a person TWO assessments occur at the same time: 1) the assessment  the practitioner consciously performs and 2) the CAN assessment, which the practitioner’s autonomic nervous system innately performs - on  stimuli detected from the patient.


Many practitioners learn how to pay close attention to the subtle tactile sensations their nervous system produces when they palpate / assess a patient. But very few practitioners know how to pay skillful attention to the CAN / autonomic responses their nervous system also produces when they palpate / assess a patient.


This is a missed opportunity. CAN responses provide vital information about the ‘biological significance’ of stimuli detected from a patient. Tactile sensations do not provide this kind of feedback. Unfortunately, most conventional assessment approaches don't pay attention to key CAN responses. Consequently, most practitioners miss out on crucial insights without realizing it.


The Access approach evolved from neuroscience research to provide new insights into subtle processes that exceptionally perceptive practitioners innately rely on. New discoveries and training tools make this once elite and elusive skill-set accessible to the average practitioner.

If you would like to personally experience the advantages that CAN assessment insights offer,

the Access Workshop can show you how to develop this high value skill set.

Thank you for an amazing weekend of awakening to all that Innate has to offer!  You would think that as chiropractors we would rely more on the "wee small voice".   Thanks for training me how to access certainty in my evaluations and adjustments!  I can now state that I know for sure where the subluxation is and when it is corrected within a matter of seconds.


The information you presented created a bridge between Innate and science that has been sorely lacking in our profession. I would highly recommend every D.C. learn this valuable skill set!  It is something you just have to experience to appreciate, it is much like trying to explain Disney World to someone... you just have to go there to know how amazing it is!
