Cranial Manipulative Reflex Technique (CRMT)

Balancing the full body from the inside out

What is CRMT?

Cranio manipulative reflex technique (CMRT) is a technique that results from an outside stressor (physical, chemical, mental, emotional, thermal) disrupting the bodies ability to adapt.

This lack of adaptation creates a disruption in the subluxation complex of specific areas which correspond to a certain organ system but specifically an individual organ. This then results in a signal from either a sensory fibre or motor fibre within your nervous system which creates tension at the sight of what is called a golgi tendon organ.

A golgi tendon organ is a muscle fibre located at the base of your skull which will become tense when it receives these signals simply put, from the body up to the brain.

These fibres present in an imaginary grid along the base of either side of your skull.  

There are three lines and seven areas that all correspond to a specific vertebra and their corresponding organ which represent their functional ability. Line one represents a meningeal imbalance, line two represents a visceral imbalance and line three represents a structural pathological imbalance.

This is a very complex and often highly precise way for the body to indirectly tell you what might be happening within your different organ systems but more accurately an exact organ. If a reflex is found and the appropriate body indicators allow the next step, CMRT will be used to balance the signals from somato-visceral (body to organ) to somato-spinal (body to spine) creating this pattern.  Often suggestion of nutrition or emotional imbalances are appropriate here in addition to the adjustment technique.
