Chiropractic Manipulative Reflex Technique (CMRT) is Visceral Fascia Therapy, a system of SOT protocols used to diagnose and treat organ function (liver, gallbladder, heart, kidneys, uterus, etc.) via the neurological connections to spinal pathways. Each posterior spinal nerve root innervates specific organs, muscles and special regions of skin. Each of these body areas used shared neural pathways to effectively communicate outgoing (efferent) and ingoing (afferent) messages to and from the central nervous system (brain and cord). This is how the body regulates itself.
The viscera, or internal organs, are held in place by a deep tissue structure that is interconnected with each organ. Intense stress or trauma (such as that caused by accidents or falls) can result in constrictions within the visceral system that can actually put pressure on the internal organs and affect their functioning. Ninety percent of musculoskeletal disorders have a dysfunctional visceral component. Even negative or stressful emotions, if experienced on a regular basis, can affect these systems. Reduced organ function can lead to a host of specific medical problems, in addition to having a generally deleterious effect on overall health.
CMRT is a hands-on soft tissue technique that deals with the viscersomatic reflex arc, using gentle pressure applied to release the stress, inflammation, and tension in and around the internal organs and their fasciae. This increases the overall mobility and motility of the organs and increases their functionality. It is non-invasive, and no drugs or needles are involved. This procedure can free the organs to resume their normal function, resulting in marked improvements in health, particularly in chronic conditions.
