Chapter 1 - the study and practice of osteopathy

Chapter 1-1
A deep ocean studies
Revised version of a lecture held in 1982 in a basic course of the
Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation in Alexandria, Virginia.
To what you have done so far in your practice to connect with what you will
learn during this week, now a huge transition must stattfi ends. Our main
task as a teacher is to help you in this, this bridge to cross as comfortable
as possible. At the same time I have to tell you, however, also point out
that what we are going to do this week, especially hard work.
As a part of the bridge that we use to make this transition, I have listed
on the chalkboard the four basic osteopathic principles that have been
taught you in college:
1.
The body is a unit.
2.
The body possesses self-regulating mechanisms.
3.
Structure and function to each other in a reciprocal
relationship.
4.
A vernnft owned treatment is based on the understanding of
the self-regulating body mechanisms and the reciprocal relationship
between structure and function in the body.
These are basic principles that you already know your entire dental
profession; first you have it belongs in your first year at an osteopathic
college. We all agree that the beautiful statements. But how many of you
realize, while you listen to these allegations and read that we are talking
about a living mechanism? In our education, in which we have only seen
things in a dead, lying on the autopsy table body
behavior, bring most of us feel with that we can do with it what we want.
In the coming work week but we are talking about a living body as a unit,
a vibrant self-regulating mechanism, a living structure and function, which
are in reciprocal relationship with each other, as well as a rating based on
this understanding, lively treatment. These mechanisms have been
revived, they are healthy. That's why we here today

I-17
allow enbaren their own infallible Potency to off - to bring this health pattern
to light.
To operate in this way, we need deep into another sea of
Understanding plunge and allow the physiological function in the patients
to train us in the truest sense of the word. We want to learn about: Where
is this patient's health? How do I get them to light? The body physiology
of the patient instructs us literally. The doctor who lives in my patients has
trained me in the last eight years, and still I'm a student. This is a part of
the transition, we have to accomplish.
We want to learn, these mechanisms, both in us and in our
Patient work, to feel and to be aware of their. Lawful to you during this
week, if you're the patient to feel this mechanism at work, at the same time
trying to feel during the student treated as the same mechanisms working
in you. So you can begin to sense function.
In order to achieve the objectives set out here, you have to go through
three learning steps, the first is the most difficult. First you have to accept
that the anatomic-physiologic function is alive in you and in your patients,
already in motion, available for your findings and use that fact. You have
to accept this fact - close your eyes, exceeds that limit and Hoff e that there
is still a floor under your feet when you put on the other side of the border.
Suddenly you are of secondary importance in relation to this matter, in
which you are working. The boss is inside. He is both in you and in your
patients. As a practitioner you're going to understand this fact and use.
Second, we need to study the details of the anatomic-physiological
mechanism in living body. We must understand that the living anatomical
and physiological details of the primary respiratory mechanism, the
craniosacral mechanism, no separate functional units, which have to be
studied separately. We add these details add to the anatomy and
physiology that we have learned in school. In my first lesson with Dr.
William Garner Sutherland I told him I had not come to his
Way we work, learn, but to my knowledge of anatomy and physiology to
the craniosacral expanding mechanism through which we had not learned
anything in college. Dr. Sutherland was the one who gave the our
profession, and now we will give it to you further. You are here in order to
continue your studies of the anatomy and physiology of the living body, and
that includes the Primary respiratory mechanism.

Chapter 1-2
Students for a lifetime
Revised transcript of a lecture given in 1986 in the
framework of a
Educators of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

in

What is a dentist? The role of the practitioner is to serve humanity. The


science of osteopathy has its origins in which off enbarenden
Structure and function of the individual. This is expressed as one of the
Body physiology inherent mechanism of motility, mobility and a fluid Drive
has. It represents itself as an experience from inside the patient and as a
learned himself, trained, palpation artistry in the practitioner. The work of
AT Still gave us the science of osteopathy. The work of WG Sutherland
gave us the primary respiratory mechanism with its detailed anatomy and
physiology, not as one of Dr. Schaff Stills en separated unit, but as an
integrated in the science of osteopathy share.
Following important point we need to bear in mind: From the time of their
discoveries accepted Still and Sutherland the science of
Osteopathy as a basic living law of body physiology and
To be need for a lifetime student of authority that the lively
Body physiology inherent. They ceased to be doctors and have become
students. Your search was completed, they had osteopathy found and
were now for the rest of their lives students of this science. Dr. Still and Dr.
Sutherland
were to eternal student, as well as all clinicians who follow in their
footsteps, needed fi shall find consent to seek use of the same living laws
for their service to humanity.
However, we are not here to remind us of the work of Still or Sutherland.
We are here to be students of the laws of the mechanism was discovered.
These laws are accessible, they are an off ener room. Still and Sutherland
were to students and gave something of itself. They gave those who
followed them, the work - but gave them only hints, in the knowledge that
those subsequent handler itself also students of this I-21
and in each individual case showed them the body by what he tried to do
it yourself, the appropriate diagnostic procedures and treatment program.
What's new in the science of osteopathy? The answer is simple: the next
patient who comes to the door and previously had been everywhere and
tried everything. The body physiology is the teacher, the attending is the
student. The mechanism of the body physiology has many doors, to make
experimental experiences in the service of better health. As a physician
and a student at the same time you erschaff st on understanding this
mechanism based techniques by you visualize first what should be in this
area in your opinion, and then depending on how you understand the
mechanism in each case and in each individual patient , those techniques
develop. In other words: you will be granted a lot of room for
experimentation, as long as you obey the laws of osteopathic science.
Results you get is proportional to your knowledge and your sense of touch
to be refined. We as students of the body physiology, as doctors can use
the body physiology in treating each patient and are used by it. The future
is bright for all who choose to study the works of Dr. Still and Dr. Sutherland
and apply.

Many Thanks.

Steps:
1.
Say the living mechanism in you and in patients. Life always
tried to express health.
2.
Give yourself to a result of this affirmation. Understand that
what the mechanism tells you is true.
3.
Develop palpation skills. The body is smarter than you, so
learn from him.
The first step is the hardest, but also the essential, in order to understand
and take advantage of living mechanisms of health. Find and learn the
mechanisms of the living function first in yourself; will you lead them to
understand your patients.
The second step is to be an observer of living functions while working.
Give yourself to the patient.
The third step requires of you that you are developing a vibrant
Palpationskunst. Palpation is the tool that uses the handler to read what
the primary doctor is doing in each of us to bring about health from the
inside. Learn the function as to feel inside, not just smaller or larger
movements.
Did you think you come in this course, to gather information? Palpation
skills to develop? To be knowledgeable in terms of services to your patients
with their problems?
No, you got to be the work that you're going to understand and use in
your service to the patient.
I-25
gene, as one would even solve this situation. Your they want to support it,
herauszufi ends that their own strength is good, no matter how limited they
may seem. In this way, the volunteers support the caller is to use their own
resources and express their feelings in a more constructive manner.
Finally, teaches the "Help" method that it is good, empathize and clarify that
it's important to you, what happens to the person seeking help. The contact
and the person himself are important to you.
These are the principles and skills that make this "help" method so
effective. This type of verbal contact requires an education, but the basic
principles are easy to learn and we can all apply in our lives.
As I now speak so here I would like that you listen to what's going on in
your head, if anyone asks for help. An important point to pay attention to
this, is the need, your own feelings about the person with whom you are
talking to know exactly these people really as to who he is, to accept someone who deserves respect just as itself. Listen to him and answers,
without judging. People feel much freer in the presence of other people,
which they accepted as silent as they are. It is your task to just stay relaxed,

in fact if anything happens. Just to be present in such an atmosphere, is


salutary. Actually, it is these faces, listening response, and not an active,
Shunting showcased reaction that can operate an osteopathic treatment.
The psychotherapist Carl Rogers expresses in his book Development of
the personality of something similar. He writes that help does not consist
of giving, but of pieces basically. He shows us that we can help others, if
we know how to show our real feelings, without judging, and by strength
Hilfebedrft warm encounter as people who are just as valuable as we who
think we're healthy. Others respond to the esteem in which we give them,
by gain confidence and begin to help themselves.
We have now built a bridge by a volunteer helper who works with the
help of talks to a doctor who has worked in the osteopathic science.
Remember: If a patient comes into your practice, it entails a body
physiology that seeks your help. Instead of teaching the patient that help
verbally, we will learn to palpate and silently to examine the body
physiology. Learn silent to work with this patient, by I-27
work. You will begin to help the patient, and you do not have to think
about it or talk about it. Your only need to be aware you are listening by
her and she feels literally using your palpatory skill. Works very quietly
with the patient, are silent partners, active listeners.

I-29
I recognize that the patient has the same mechanism as me. Only then, I
ask the patient in the treatment room. Then I do what has to be always
done. I work here, without thinking of what I hope to achieve for that patient
e. I just start to work.
This small, coming out of my heart greeting, which I acknowledge my
own silence in patients is a silent acknowledgment that she is alive. An
invisible acknowledging or realizing that. Even if you treat 45 patients in one
day, you can take you time for this very moment, in order to connect to a
point of stillness within yourself, and then with the same point in the patient.
Because then - no matter how you work with the individual patient - it
happens 45 times a day that you have recognized in you and in the patient
something that will silence ttzen the treatment program Unters. What is
this something, I do not know, and that's not even important. It's simply,
stand out for identifi with a mechanism that exists in each of us, and to use
one's.
This silence is Will guide you in terms of what specific at this
Day to do. And I am convinced that the patient it does not have to
consciously participate. I treat many patients who do not have the slightest
idea what I'm doing, and it still like it because they feel that something is
happening in them. It feels to them as if finally a dentist has recognized
some of them and try to help them. Sometimes they suspect that I'm doing
anything at all, but in the end they know that I'm doing something, because
their clinical picture changes.
So this contact is a silent confirmation, and it also gives me a moment of
rest between patients. If you have a case that really takes along to you and some do - you do not want all this garbage to take to the next patient.
If it is possible to take you then a little more time for this process. Take a
three-quarter minute to you sit down somewhere and let it just herausfl ow
from you, it flushes out. Ye have forgotten then when they leave the
treatment room, you know not even the name. Then you let be quite calm
and asks the next patient to come into the room. Even if it is not a difficult
case, you can watch if the patient is to make aware quietly, that something
has happened, while he was in the treatment room. You must not say a
word about it. This is simply a silent exchange between my silence and the
silence of the patient - the name does not matter, techniques do not matter,
not I-31
Chapter 1-6 Relax, there's no
hurry
The mechanism has no problems
Revised version of a lecture held in 1986 as part of a
basic course of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching
Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

I you would like an interesting story about one of my


Experiences with Dr. Will Sutherland. During a course for doctors in
Denver, C olorado, one of the participants brought a patient with the advice,
who had developed epilepsy as a result of a tractor accident and in whose
treatment he progressed his feeling after not really. He therefore asked Dr.
Sutherland to investigate these patients and see what you could do to help
him.
Dr. Sutherland, a very silent guy who never used words than necessary,
examined the patient, eventually turned to the doctor and said, "I think you
are on the right track, you make just the good work continues . "When
Sutherland got up to return to his chair, the practitioner said," Dr.
Sutherland, a quick question, please. What would
You do, if the patient had a seizure while you are trying to help him, "Dr.
Sutherland simply said," Do not block him, "and moved on. Well, I was
coincidentally at a place from where I could see the whole audience, and
looked in thirty uncomprehending faces. "You block it," was all he said. He
expected that we go back to the mechanisms of our patients and herausfi
ends what he meant. He was just a great man who taught you something
about the mechanism by leaving it to the mechanism to inform you.
So we can be relaxed and cheerful and aufh ren to worry about it. We
must accept the fact that life is already at work both in the practitioner as
the patients and so we can relax as well. We're not going anywhere, and
your patients also to be there. The patient must take responsibility and
appear with you. And patients will not run, unless you treat them really bad.
They are I-33
his work. If there is a dysfunction pattern -. For example, a problem of
okzipitomastoidalen area in the skull base - Man, that's actually a problem.
But this dysfunction between the occipital and mastoid Pars does not
realize that it is a problem. You must be beschft IGT with being a
okzipitomastoidale dysfunction. So we have to go to this dysfunction and
ask quietly: "Look, it may be that you enjoy life like that, but the body in
which you live, it does not enjoy so much. Well, will not you consider to
allow me to touch you with my hands so that you change your state and
aufh Oerst to be a so-called complex dysfunction? "
We have the right, the privilege, and to understand ourselves in the
mechanism, this okzipitomastoidale dysfunction in patients. We have a
okzipitomastoidalen mechanism in our own mind, perhaps having no
dysfunction; but we can use this mechanism, we study, we understand out.
And we will certainly understand him even better once
we get our hands on the person who comes to us, lay.
Exactly the mechanisms that are to be healthy, they also which are able
to express one's health. They work and are in constant motion; Always
working towards the same goal, which is also in us. We are fighting - we
live - to express ourselves in health. That whatever you ask us, everything
that the next patient who enters our practice, will say to us is, "I would like
to be healthy, doctor, and it has been said to me that you and the

mechanisms in themselves understand me that will allow me to health


zurckzufi ends. "We must not hurry this. We can answer: "For the present
treatment, we have X minutes. What is possible, we will do. We'll give a
little suggestion here and there a small suggestion; and then take the home
and make it work. Do you live alone your daily life, follow a few suggestions,
come back next week, and we will continue in our efforts to help each of us.
"In silence, the patient connects speak with the mechanism in me and in
silence Treff e I with the mechanism in patients. We are trying quietly to
work in an atmosphere in which we exchange ideas and capabilities, and
then we'll go quietly from there. When you go from this course back home,
all these mechanisms will work in you to the mechanisms in the patient;
and the two of you it will be fun. All Good.
I-35
aufnehmt her contact with this patient, contact your own
SutherlandFulkrum and the silence.
Let us come back to earth. When you return to your home practice, this
knowledge should be a part of what is available to you to meet the patient's
needs. Not projected it outward - the patient himself will show to try out
what you have learned you need. It's like when you learn for a final exam.
Man studying like crazy, stuffed all sorts of information to himself and is not
sure how it goes. You just studying, reading and lets it penetrate its
essence. Then you throw all textbooks out the window goes to the exams
and somehow fl ows forth the information that you need for the exam.
So let this course a few days penetrate your being before you try to use
everything - and used it in a relaxed manner. Let the knowledge of the
movement of the temporal bones, the pattern of the cranial base, individual,
specifi c, membranous joint dysfunctions, the condyles of the occiput, the
fluid dynamics of living fluctuation, the rocking motion of a reciprocal tension
membrane, the articulated movement of the skull and the Os sacrum
between the ilia Ossa - let these things easy for a few days penetrate your
being. Adds these new diagnostic tools gradually added. When you are
back home, the patients who come into your consulting room, the same
ones that have already been dealt with her in the x years of your practice;
and if they have not yet benefited from this treatment approach will not
make much difference a few more days.
I-37
Dr. Still was in developing the science of osteopathy his Creator closer
than reinstoff royal breathing; he was guided by a spiritual or mental
fulcrum, as Dr. Sutherland.
If we, as students of the science of osteopathy, really want to understand
osteopathy, we will need to fi nd, our knowledge of the Godhead, which
orients us to the center, to reawaken, to turn them into our spiritual fulcrum,
which leads us and learn to have in our daily work the Creator in mind to
feel and use. Thanks to its knowledge and its application of the science of
osteopathy gave us Dr. Sutherland

Signposts, which we can follow. However, let us for a moment this resolute
way of thinking in 1900 with today's science compare. I recently the recently
published article by a famous science moth read, in which he tried and
spiritual science Liche truths together. His conclusion is that science and
spirituality are not incompatible, but that the great truths of these two areas
are, so to speak, more or less parallel. In other words, both are moving
towards that unknown understanding that is necessary for the well-known
understanding. I'm not really agree with this idea. How can you conclude
that this is a science Liche truth and the other a spiritual truth? Because I
trust more a science ler which his science comprehensive understanding
comes through a Spiritual Guidance and not by attempting to build a
separate super-structure.
I like the idea of a biologist and science Jewellers, who made this remark in a
discussion about the phenomena of life: "It is a fact that the life science s are not only
much more complicated than the science s, but also a much larger symbol space have;
and they go further in the exploration of the universe of science as the
Science s. While you are using all natural science data and your
explanation basics, then go far beyond that and include an even greater
amount of data and additional explanation foundations that offer no less,
but in a sense, even more scientific probability. The point here is that all
known material processes and explanatory principles on living
Organisms en zutreff, only a limited number but not living systems. "When
osteopathic concept, and this includes the cranial area, is about a living
system. Dr. Sutherland said, "The cranial work is not a special, separate
from the science of osteopathy area. The truth is a lot of I-39
per takes in response to its internal and external environment to its
voluntary and involuntary actions. And with these factors we can learn to
feel through the use of our thinking, feeling, seeing, knowing fingers.
If we put our hands on a patient who is in good health, we feel a general
sense of well exploitation ends. We feel the respiratory cycle of his
breathing. We feel the flexion and extension of his running in the midline
structures in their function. We feel the alternating external and internal
rotation of its bilateral structures in their function. We feel any voluntary
movements this person and many involuntary movements of various organ
systems within the body. If our hands are on his head, we can feel the
movements of the cranial mechanism tion joint mechanism, the vast
movements of the reciprocal tension membrane and the fluctuation of the
cerebrospinal fluid as an integrated radio. Throughout the body is
something tangible that today in the
Anatomy and physiology texts is normally not mentioned: a general
Uten Tidenbewegung the entire body, a Hereinfl and out Ebben. It is as if
the whole, acting as a unit body reacts to a force similar to that which moves
the tides of the ocean. It is a rhythmic movement within all Krperfl uids.
She's on her quiet way Krft strength than any other physiological function
within the physical mechanism, important and powerful than the breathing

cycle, the voluntary or involuntary movements or any of the other


movements that we normally take into consideration.
Our expert touch learns to recognize all of these factors that work together
as an integrated feature in each we examined body part. This is a rhythmic
Tide in the physiological interaction with their highest known element and
their inherent potency.
If we go deeper in our understanding of the physical mechanisms, we
learn that any normal functioning of the individual body units - there were
bones, ligaments, membranes, fascia, organs or fluids - apparently carried
out by means of free-floating, automatically changing Fulkren. The
Sutherland fulcrum which is located where the falx meets the tentorium, is
a free-floating, automatically to changing fulcrum for the reciprocal tension
membrane. The sternal end of the clavicle is a osseous fulcrum for the
functioning of the entire upper extremity. The Atlas is used in childbirth than
osseous fulcrum for Partes condylares of the occipital bone. It I-41
To clarify this thought further, he adds:
"D he is the breath of life in the tide of the cerebrospinal fluid, the principle of the primary
respiratory mechanism underlying."
Next he gave us as we develop thinking, feeling, seeing, knowing fingers
detailed instructions to the Tide bring down to its point Still, their break-rest
period to check their function in the body physiology. It is important to know
that we are in our efforts to learn how to control the tide, are not limited to
the craniosacral mechanism. If we are looking at a body portion balance in
tissue and fluid element, while we detect a disease or a pathological state
s, we learn how to bring the tide in their balance point or Fulkrumbereich.
When we do this, a transmutation process stattfi ends, which resolves the
mechanics of dysfunction, pathology corrects and restores health for that
person. This is the designed by the master mechanic healing principle that
works in our patients; and we can develop and see how it works in the
tissues of patients our perception as a handler inside and workstations.
So far I have referred to the functioning of the Tide in the body and to
the many Fulkren who work in the body physiology. Now it's time to talk
about something else that Dr. Sutherland gave us on the way to deepen our
understanding. This is the silence of the tide - not the up-and-down
fluctuation of its waves, but the silence that nds the fulcrum point within the
Tide fi. There is a potency within this silence. The term silence confused
when trying to understand this kind of work, perhaps our thinking. How can
there be a potency or power or energy in the silence? Dr. Sutherland
described the pictorially: If you transfer a vibration on a glass of water, you
can watch how to form a still point in the center of Wasseroberfl che. He
pointed out that this is a fulcrum point within the water glass, and compared
him to the fulcrum point, which we achieve when we the fluctuation of the
cerebrospinal fluid during the compression of the fourth ventricle (or any
other technique for controlling the Tide) bring down their still point." It is the
silence of the Tide, which we are seeking , "he pfl EGTE to say, because in
that silence is the Potency of the Tide.

Those of us who had to be there when he about this happiness


Th ema said, were able to experience how the entire classroom was
noticeably quiet. Dr. Sutherland made us aware and mentioned that this
huI-43
following action. We need to understand the mechanism of this silence and
use in treating our patients. It is not necessary that we fully understand what
it is or where it comes from or where it goes after it had us in this moment
of benefits - the silence of the tide in the body physiology.
So far I have talked about feature, the free-floating, automatically
changing fulcrum and the Tide, the silence and the potency that operate
within all these facets in the body physiology. It seems as if I'm trying to
develop a theological hypothesis to explain this kind of work. However, this
is not the case. I'm just trying to show you that the Creator of the human
body and its mechanisms is more than a passive concept,
of which only we speak, without believing in it and to use it.The science of
osteopathy heard daily, active benefits of the Creator. Osteopathy is an
acquired art, not just a science; and I like the quote that I read somewhere:
" Be at peace with God, who and what ever he is in your opinion. And
whatever they may be your wishes and desires in this noisy confusion of
life: " Be in harmony with your soul. " Therefore, we need in our daily
practice working tools for understanding and using a Spiritual Fulkrums.
What is one of these tools? First, a practitioner needs to develop in my
opinion, an objective perception. He was the anatomy, physiology and
pathology and know all the integrated, related to each other and with
themselves functional sequences that ends stattfi between all these
elements of the body physiology. He must be capable of diagnostic and
prognostic
To evaluate knowledge and to determine, from the first examining the
patient until its release from treatment. He should be able to bring in every
patient the changes that causes the use of potency in the tissue, with the
objective progress towards normalcy and recovered compensation in
connection. And he should be guided in each case, treatment of the
objective findings in determining the procedure.
Second, the clinician should have a subjective perception of the potential
that lies in the application of healing principles described herein. And he
should be able to feel, what is the chance to turn the pathology of the
patient, and the extent to which a recovery within the tissue units is possible.
It has to do with the subjective phenomenon of life itself and takes on the
changes taking place in the patient's subjective changes in part, I-45
ments that I hear in my practice on hufi gsten, are: " He has not done
anything, but ... " or " All he did was to put his hands on me and sit there,
and when he had finished, it went better for me. " It's always important to
establish and allow a good relationship with the patient, that the internal
physiological function of their own, never erring Potency brings as motive
power for the correction, rather than a force applied from the outside blind.

If you have reached good results in someone who already had various
other treatments behind her, including sometimes osteopathy using
manipulation, then you will of this patient and this patient like to send his or
her friends. It is interesting to see how these potential patients are prepared
for their services. The new patient is said: " If you go to my osteopath, was
not surprised about his type of treatment. You'll think he does nothing, but
it will you be better off if he's done with the treatment; and when he says he
wants to see you again, stick with it, and it will ensure that you're well again.
" I have a very fine gentleman as a patient who has already sent me a lot
of other patients, and which says he, " go to my osteopath with the magic
hands. I do not know how he does it, but he can help you. "
Your patients come back and send their friends because they achieve
good results in case of problems that could be solved either by medicine,
physiotherapy or some other form of examination or testing. Then, when
further develop your skills, you will get more and more complex cases;
People who have been everywhere and still need help for your
problems.And just when you think that this is now the most difficult case at
all, comes a new patient who can appear just before lying all cases. If you,
as the main force for diagnosis and treatment uses the infallible Potency,
the complex cases attracts as flowers attract bees. That is the reason,
why this kind of work is always interesting.There is always something new
to learn from the physiological body of the patient. Growing understanding
- that is what the clinician needs to be able to help the patient.
" You come back to: cause , "said Dr. Sutherland. " If you understand the
mechanism, the technique is simple. " Think for a moment about what these
two statements mean for osteopaths. In this world of consequences pile up
in the problem cases that come to us in the practice, consequences to follow
until these consequences totally drown out the causal factor, ie the original
injury or illness that caused the syndrome. Now I-47
Skepticism be observed in one patient and creates in this type of work an
interesting challenge.
In addition, the practitioner should have an objective and a subjective
consciousness as well as a thinking, seeing sentient, knowing sense of
touch feature. The following concise set of Dr. Sutherland summarizes all
these qualifiers cations together: " If you understand the mechanism, the
technique is simple. " And it's easy. This was and is the science of
osteopathy as Dr. Still, Dr. Sutherland, and many other leading capacities
have formulated and practiced in our profession. Today we are concerned
with the traditional by Dr. Sutherland truths and their demonstration.
Now we must consider what all this means for us and for our practical
work now and in the future. We need every service out there today within
our highly qualifi ed profession. We need our hospitals, our surgeons,
internists, pediatricians, gynecologists, psychiatrists and all other
departments. Each area of modern medicine is important for the routine
care of our patients. There are, however, not only for all these areas space,
but also for somewhat beyond Going. We need at least 2,000 women and

men who take the time to learn the necessary material in order to use the
truths of Still and Sutherland in their daily practice. They told me that not
every practitioner is able to acquire these specific skills that you have to pay
to be particularly gifted. This opinion I am not. I think the practitioner needs
perseverance, time, and has to spend a lot of work to learn this skill and
science. Who is willing, time and effort into the basic requirement " be still
and know "investing, which can bring a closer to the Creator as a pure
substance royal breathing, is on this path inevitably an advocate and
practical user of the principles given to us by Dr. AT Still and Dr. WG
Sutherland were mediated. Off en said I would like to see how 2,000 men
and women to exercise this kind of osteopathy because those osteopaths
will be many thousands of patients to services, which you have said
elsewhere: " We have done for you everything is possible. You will have to
learn to live with this problem. " A high percentage of these numerous
people can be led to a much higher level of health but, as is available in
their present condition are available. Such patients, which can help me at
heart. So you get stuck, you need the help of osteopaths with
Skills in the said areas. At present there are in America but only I-49
sent me many years ago in response to a letter in which I referred to certain
aspects of osteopathy in the cranial region. However, his response includes
the entire body physiology in the science of osteopathy. I quote him
verbatim:
" I am closer than my breath the creator of the cranial mechanism ... The patient closer
is the creator of his or her cranial mechanism ... 7 My thinking, sentient, seeing, knowing
fingers out on smart way of Magisterial mechanic who created this mechanism , It does
not matter how you interpret, as long as you mentally contact with the overhead line has
like a streetcar. "
Let me repeat that: ' It does not matter how you interpret, as long as you mentally
contact with the overhead line has like a streetcar . "

Chapter 2
Understanding the mechanism

The involuntary mechanism


Revised Excerpts from lectures, held in 1976 during a basic course of
the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
We want to talk about the nature of the primary respiratory mechanism,
which is a simple, basic, primary rhythmic functional unit. He is completely
involuntary, involves the entire anatomy and physiology and can be
palpated by a trained clinician in each body area. Just as he provides the
evidence for health throughout the body physiology, he also points to a
reduction in the health area in each dysfunction. One can equally be used
as a tool for diagnosis and treatment him. The primary respiratory
mechanism is a manifestation of life in the patient and the practitioner can
in his service to restore health in patients who take his help.
He is and remains a functional unit, this primary respiratory mechanism,
even though he was divided for teaching purposes in five components, one
of which therefore each forms part of these simple, rhythmic, primary
functional unit within the body physiology. You see that I have not just said,
"within the primary respiratory mechanism" but "within the body
physiology," The entire unit has this factor.. Everything follows the laws of
flexion / external rotation and extension / internal rotation of the anatomicphysiological mechanism. We are completely dependent on this simple,
rhythmic, mobile, motile fluid-drive mechanism.
The entire body has an involuntary mechanism.
Even if your
Psoamuskel is sick, he is destined to go into internal and external rotation.
Your foot is so designed that it ten or twelve times per minute is in internal
and external rotation - not because of the primary respiratory mechanism,
but because of the primary respiratory mechanism can function only in this
way. Therefore, we must learn its rules and laws.
Let me read you a text in which it comes to what I want to express here.
He comes from a book of essays by the American anthropologist Loren
Eiseley. If you have not yet read Loren Eiseley, you should do that especially if you want to learn how to palpate. Through his books I-55
mechanism, to move and to stay alive, to be what he is: a mind-body
structure, an anatomically-physiological, functioning mechanism. We have
many involuntary systems in our body - circulatory, digestive, etc. But the
key role in the human body has a very special unwillkrlichern mechanism:
Every single body cell, each individual cell that lives within the liquids in
which it is produced, is 10 to 12 times per minute moves in flexion and
extension, in internal and external rotation.
So if we have a healthy patient - regardless of whether he sits quietly,
walketh about, deep asleep, running, is very active or in complete tranquility
are in a friend - is taking place everywhere in him this involuntary
physiological function movement. We focus on the neurokranialen and
sacral mechanism than the

Parts enbaren this mechanism, this involuntary movement off. But the
neurocranial and the sacred activity axis, its physiological function is when
you want to say so, more or less, the drive shaft of the system that allows
all the wheels and hoists as well as everything that comes so directly from
the factory, to do their work be brought - flexion / external rotation and
extension / internal rotation. So one can understand the neurokranialen
and sacral mechanism under any circumstances as a separated from the
whole body physiology unit. Every time we put our hands to a patient, we
are dealing with the largest and most important involuntary system in the
human body. Every time we touch these patients, no matter whether we
are here referring to a tiny finger joint or a whole leg, we must attune
ourselves to these involuntary, physiological mechanism.
Arbitrary mechanisms correspond all that the decisions precipitating
fraction of our brain decides to do with this involuntary thing. I decide to go
myself to stand or sit; I decide to persuade me to eat and think (or think
that I think); I can a million decisions taken en. I decide to have thoughts
or emotions - everything is arbitrary. These are activities that we can use
in an intelligent way, by trying to offend nor to let them starve or to take on
excessive manner. We just use the normal daily lives, and once we aufh
ren to use them, they fall easily back to where they came from, and our
involuntary mechanism continues to support us until we give the instruction
again, that the arbitrary something else to do. It is the arbitrary page in life
that puts us in difficult situations, not involuntary.

I-57
among leading levels. That's the change that speaks of the Eiseley, the
infinite variety of patterns, from a functional state to another, in the
involuntary mechanism by which it works. As long as it takes. This is the
time, the needs change. Our job as a therapist is to us silently tune from
the inside out in order to understand this event. Our understanding arises
out of something that we feel, though can not explain. What
we because it is perceptible to us, feel, is a consequence. And yet we can
observe that something is actually happening in this nanosecond. We can
observe what pattern was previously there and that thereafter, and because we have studied the details of the physiological movement of any
part of this involuntary mechanism not only in the craniosacral axis, but in
the whole system - with our intelligent comprehension able to make this
available for clinical purposes.
A universal design
There are in this craniosacral mechanism and throughout the anatomy and
physiology of the entire body and the aspect of universality. Approximately
ten thousand generations or three million years did it take to make the
human body to what it is today. Basically, it is designed so that it functions
as a voluntary and involuntary mechanism. The only reason why we are
sitting here today is that we are the product of x people generations that
have managed to survive. Therefore, the mechanisms are in us all those
that have been determined by nature to survive.
In other words: The fundamental guiding principle in the healing arts (I
have deliberately not told "the osteopathic profession," because we are
talking about something that should be understood that members of all
healing arts), the fundamental idea is so that the body from head to at the
feet is a wonderful mechanism and, although was composed, designed
from many parts as a comprehensive unit, as a universal functional unit.
The more clearly we understand how he as a holistic mechanism works in
ourselves - and I mean both the voluntary and involuntary part -, the more
precise can be our diagnosis and more capable certainly our treatment.
Yesterday there was talk in the department about the architectural
principles of I-59
Craniosacral mechanism has principles that work universally in all of us
and then ends its individual expression in the personality, to which they
belong, fi.
That we while studying in these courses do not look for pathologies but
to the basics, which can function this mechanism, expands our horizons
considerably. Not to study the so-called Normal, so here you are, but to
understand the principles that belong to the so-called normal at the
individual person with whom you were working.

DNA patterns
If you could examine the structure of an involuntary people without any
interference of arbitrary would you fi nd that there is an individual pattern of
health for every human being in this world. Each anatomical-physiological,
involuntary mechanism follows from the top of the head to the feet a pattern
that inoculated him, for him geschaff en was of the DNS, which was at the
time of conception there and around which every man his pattern of health
builds. He received energy to build this pattern. It takes nine months to be
born, and 90 years in order to tear oneself away; But all this time on the
involuntary structure is continuously built up cell by cell again, with only the
DNA patterns of this particular body creates the internal mechanism that
makes it into a functioning system involuntary.
If you are with your hands on these patients einstimmst you with the aim
of problems ausfi constantly to make, then fi du nd also problems caused
by arbitrary geschaff enes stress, disease or trauma - that is, by something
that carried the patient from the outside inwards has. But if you're able,
through what has been saddled with this thing, wade and your focus judge
on the whole of involuntary pattern you call instead the most energy in the
world - the DNS and its pattern or blueprint - brought that saying: "That is
what I want to be," This pattern is individually designed for this soul, this
one individual..
So if I do this cranial mechanism, or whatever I'm trying to deal with,
touch, while the I focus my consciousness on
MAKE mechanism of this patient, I try to read under the I-61

Movement - the key to diagnosis and treatment
Paper presented at a conference of the Cranial Academy, which took
place in 1979 with support of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching
Foundation.
Movement is life. Movement is a manifestation of life. The miracle of life
is expressed in movement, the flow of electrons around a nucleus around,
call to the living creatures, Anzen we viruses, bacteria, fungi, plowing
animals and mankind. This life can be ends in the sea fi, on land and in the
air - perhaps even in space. Mankind has lived in all these environments
or adapted in order to be able to live there. Webster defi ned movement
as:
"The act or process of moving itself; the local change of a body from one place to
another; the action to move his body or a body part; in mechanics: a combination of
moving parts; Mechanism. "9
At Dorland total 30 Defi nition of movement include the following: 1. The
process of self-moving. 2. Active activity: a caused by the own muscle
movement. 3. Automatic movement: a movement which has its origin in
the body, but is not triggered deliberately. 4. Transferred movement: a force

triggered by external movement.


5. Passive movement: each
photosensitive from outside the body are in a force caused body movement.
6. refl exbewegung: an involuntary movement, provoked by an external
stimulus, acting on a nerve center. 7. Spontaneous movement: a
movement that has its origins within the organism. 8. Index movement: a
movement of a cranial part of the body in relation to a fi xed caudal part. 9.
Brownian motion: the dancing movement

These nine Defi nition of the term s movement are important for our
discussion. For example Defi nition number eight: "Index movement: a

their off ensichtlichen movements, whether coarse or fine, draw their power
from an inherent potency, allow me as a clinician, allow the internal
physiological function of their own, never erring Potency off enbart, held in
treating my patients blind force applied from the outside.
Our nameless bodies have other resources that complement the overall
functional processes in our internal and external environment, complicate,
promote and support. We have a name that was given to us by our parents.
We have an ego, a mind and emotions. These three - ego, mind and
emotions - are also manifestations of life as movement, but at different
frequencies than on the, which is the physical and physiological structure
of our nameless body as its own. All three are an inherent portion of our
holistic nature and therefore part of our total existence. Ego, mind and
emotions creating en areas is manifesting movements with so many rapidly
changing variables as there are people on Earth. Answered and Again refl
ected our nameless body an existing internal and external natural
interdependence with all of these variables in the fields
of ego, mind and emotions.
Compare the body of a man whose whole being expresses anger, a
friend of the one man who is allowed to be in are in a state of utter devotion,
in meditative silence. Watch the infl uence of a terrified mother to her
injured child. Once they brought me a baby that had fallen from his high
chair and unconscious. As I examined it, his mother sat on the other side
of the room. I looked at the still unconscious appearing little boy thoroughly
and found no physical injuries. "You must not worry, nothing happened," I
said to the mother. "Thank God!" She cried and relaxed. Immediately the
little boy responded by he began to move normally and crying. The fear of
the mother had contributed to the immobility of the child.
We have now briefly talked about all of the various types of motion in a
nameless body, capable of turn out to answer his internal and external
environment as a functional unit per se and to refl ect. We have

supplemented by the many variables that ego, mind and emotions can
contribute with its forms of movement. These are no cause-effect
relationships. Here it comes, whether it is the physician or the patient to an
undivided individual in an existing externally and internally interrelated with
its own individual environment.
I-65
Can be read out of the functional processes of the body physiology The
now following criteria for the care provider and patient. The physiology of
our nameless body has four main movement patterns, the five senses,
which can be used to his conscious perception for the diagnosis of the
doctor in addition, and five basic principles of potential treatment. The four
main patterns of movement are:
1.
The neuromuscular movements of the musculoskeletal
system; it could also be as arbitrary mechanism of physiological
function sequences indicate in the body.
2.
The secondary ribs and breathing mechanisms that move all
body tissues during breathing cycles.
3.
The inherent rhythmic motile and mobile, involuntary
craniosacral fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid and the entire
lymphatic system with a cycle speed of 10 to 14 times per minute in
a healthy state. Dr. William G. Sutherland has described this
perfectly rhythmic motion as a kind Tidenphnomen. This means
that over a period of ten minutes the whole body physiology each
about 100 times passes through a cycle of movement of flexion with
external rotation and extension with internal rotation. This is a
powerful tool for diagnosis and Th erapie.
4.
A large tidenartige movement that approximately 6 times
stattfi friend over a period of nine minutes a fl uktuierender
mechanism needs for each rhythmic cycle about one and a half
minutes. I could watch this great Tide in my patients for the first time
ten years ago and I have no idea what their origin or to their very
nature. It is one
Tide, the massive feels like having a gradually swelling expansion of the
whole body physiology and a gradually rcklufi gene movement,
followed by the next, gradually becoming a massive expansion in a
rhythmically balanced exchange within the whole body physiology. I have
this movement simultaneously counted in two patients, and it was
common to both, but in each case on an individual way. This too is a
powerful therapeutic tool, as we'll discuss later.
The full resources of the body physiology, including the four main
movement patterns, answer and reflect the creative tensions of normal
functional processes within the involuntary articularly-membranous
mechanisms of the primary respiratory mechanism and the fascialligamentous voluntary and involuntary linkages of the rest of the body
physiology. This I-67

the linkages up to the deepest level of voluntary and involuntary movement


in the overall physiology of the patient.
The more sensitive we are to be participants in the palpation, the more
awareness we develop the true value of the capacity and the resources that
are inherent to the voluntary and involuntary mechanisms of our patients.
They are the ones that allow us to diagnostic assessment and ask ourselves
the therapeutic mechanisms are available that help can be the many
problems that we encounter in our practice, treat. The possibilities are
limitless.
The concept of movement in the treatment in the healing arts covers a
wide area and many branches of science: Medicine and Surgery,
Psychology, Radiology, Physiotherapy, Krankenpfl ege, and any other
additional supply. All of these areas of knowledge based on a number of
principles that are aligned so that they can be used for any type of service
and are suitable to address specifi c problems when creating a useful
diagnosis and a clinical treatment plan for a recovery towards health. In our
discussion, it continues to the conditions laid down by us criteria for some
of the main forms of movement in a nameless body physiology as well as
the criteria for the use of conscious perception, the five projected
sensations and the sensory motor skills by the dentist who these tools with
the finding its palpation performed by him as a participant coordinated.
Following therapeutic principles are applied when we use motion: 1.
reinforcement 2. Perform apart, 3. Direct Action, 4. Opposite Physiological
motion and 5. Compression.
The artistry and science of palpation for a diagnostic findings can be
when you realize as an interested party is not separate from the therapeutic
principles, because it is a synchronous process in the physiological
functional processes of the nameless body when the practitioner with the
problem in Patients works. The reason is simple: the nameless
The patient's body has developed a problem which brings us to the patient.
Our careful estimate using our participating palpation and our motor skills
gives us the movement pattern in this patient experience. We are out of
the range of movement and use the aforementioned five principles, not
techniques of reinforcement, apart Run, Direct Action, opposites
physiological movement, compression I-69
Again, it is interesting to see that when we have reached the point of
balance or the balance points and support the tissues so that they go
through the treatment cycle, the creative tension of the nameless body from
the inside reinforcement, apart Run, Direct Action, opposite physiological
motion and compression - or a combination of the five - show, while the
body searches and goes through the quiet period of the change in the
reciprocal tension balance what correction means. The nameless body
uses in themselves the same set of principles that we apply as a dentist to
go to fi nd those balance point that allows the body through his course of
treatment.

Even a brief remark about the great tidenartige movement as a


therapeutic tool: it is not clearly noticeable in every patient. If it can be
observed, it feels solid, with a gradually swelling Ngern expansion of
tidenartigen Flssigkeitsfi that ltrieren the bundle of membranous and
fascial sheaths throughout the body INFI. If one edge of the ocean life and
saw the heranfl utenden finger the Tide, which gradually fill the cracks and
crannies of an estuary to the sea, so you would get an idea of how this
works great Tide. While the returning pattern the tidenartigen finger pull
back from the membranous and fascial bundles, then reappear the next
rhythmic cycle. This tide is a powerful therapeutic tool. You can feel how
dozens or hundreds of tiny membranous and fascial-ligamentous joint
corrections stattfi ends - a connective tissue that has enriched from a source
that makes it work in its eff ektivsten phase of living function. Our
participating palpatory sensitive and motor skills can learn to use this Tide
to fi nd and not necessarily in every case of treatment, but often enough to
make it be interesting and productive when they are the dentist shows.
In summary, I would say that to me is awarded as a dentist and my
patient as individuals life that manifests as movement. We learn at all levels
of our being, in our spiritual consciousness, our ego, our mind, in the
emotions and the physiological functional processes of our nameless body
the resources of this life. It is off Obviously, that we can use as a practitioner
this existing movement as a key for diagnosis and treatment in the service
of our patients. I would like to leave you with the question: "What is the key
to movement"?

physiology, the use innate vitality in every living human being, and the
ability of the physician this basic anatomical and physiological mechanism
in living patients to restore health. He had spent thirty-five years to learn
these principles. Dr. Still knew the basic anatomy and physiology of the
living body, was able to receive a mental picture of the health mechanisms
in individual people and developed a skilful manual approach for correcting
body physiology of the patient to guide their return to healthy functioning.
Dr. Still knew these principles, and - more importantly - he took it and
observed in the patients who took its service to complete, the result: a from
the inside out executive return to health.
The principles that Dr. Still discovered in 1874, are still as applicable and
true as ever. The term "principle" is defined as follows defi in dictionary:
"1) The original source, origin or cause of something or 2) a natural or original or trend
basis."
These definitions describe the Defi presented by Dr. Still basic concepts.
It is refreshing to read the works of Dr. Still, and you fi nd easily hundreds
of citations that the one-to-one relationship between Dr. Still and his various
patients subject s. Through his discovery Dr. Still realized that:

these active principles and concepts inherent in the mind, live


in the body and in the soul of every patient,

it is the supreme duty of the physician, for the people 'health


to fi nd "(because" any disease can fi nd ") 10,

the resources of the living body to the attentive practitioner to


Ver-addition are, so that he can make a mental picture, which combined with palpatorischem Can - for evaluating the body
physiology can be used in healthy, sick or traumatized state,

the living body of the patient carries tools in itself, with which
you promote the existing in patient self-healing principles and may
induce them to work.

of fi nding should be the concern of a doctor. Anyone can fi nd the
disease "[From:. Still AT:

I-73
The quote of Dr. Still emphasized the normalcy of health in the living
human body. This main focus on health runs through all Still'schen font en.
The second lesson that we can learn from this quotation is the fact that the
presence of any disease or of trauma in the body physiology is merely a
consequence, a departure from the norm in terms of position and function
in the areas where the disease or trauma to fi nd is.
Health is a living principle in the living body, and they can not be defi ne.
Cause and effect is a principle of body physiology that can be defi ned in
the presence of disease and / or trauma.
For example: A patient comes with a severely sprained ankle, with
possibly torn ligaments. The ankle shows symptoms and dysfunction; but
these are only consequences, not the cause of the restriction. Perhaps the
patient has tried to catch with an outstretched hand or with both hands while
he umknickte and fi el. In all kinds of places in his body normality may have
been disturbed, and each of these places controls as a cause to the
eventual development the sprained ankle in. There may an abnormal
rotation at the knee or at the hip give e the right or left leg, a dysfunction
pattern in psoas or ligamentous joint Train in the arm and hand, and indeed
where they are pitched when falling on the floor. The accumulated results
of this single cause areas add up and be the cause of the ankle injury. Each
of these areas must be carried out and evaluated a corrective treatment so
that the healthy functioning of both the causal areas as well as in the ankle
is restored. With the return to normality can be seen again at the ankle
health and even torn ligaments heal better.
Another example of a deviation from the health and as well as the ankle
injury is merely a consequence disease. You can take many forms: There
are chronic problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, which lasts for years, or
relatively acute diseases such as lobar pneumonia. The - in the latter case

- diseased lung is not the cause of anything. There are a number of effects
that occur in a specifi c pattern and cause the deviation from normality. The
health returns to the lungs if all these consequences are resolved. To
perform a corrective evaluation and treatment that addresses the root
cause, you have to work on the areas of the body physiology, who allows
the lungs, their opposition to I-75
Dr. Stills work began at an hour when he turned his back on the ineff
ective health system of his time. He describes his discovery of the science
of osteopathy on June 22, 1874 as follows:
"22 years ago I shot hit not into the heart but into the dome of the mind.
This dome was then in a poor state, to be pierced by an arrow with the
principles of philosophy. ... Some of the time I retired to think about this
event, which I realized thanks to the force of closing that the word means
god perfection in all things and in all places. At this point I began with the
microscope of the mind to consider carefully the assumption was often
made in our presence that the divine perfection can be seen in his works.
"12
Dr. Still took it upon himself to work with all the hidden factors that belong
to the basics of the science of osteopathy, to examine them, to experiment
with them, to study them, to test, to rethink and to feel. It was a sudden
break out for a man, this change from "elimination of pain and suffering"
toward "restoring health from the inside."
There are many facets of knowledge and understanding that can be
learned from the living body physiology of the patient. And there are many
lively diagnostic and treatment skills that can be utilized in the development
of a perceptual coordination of the living practitioner in its work with the
living patient to achieve a correction towards health.
The emphasis on the word is intentionally alive. To Dr. Stills discovery
belongs his knowledge that the human body is a machine, which is driven
by the invisible force called life.It is the vitality of the human body, which
makes him react to tests, techniques and tools of medical science - to exact
from the technologically more advanced computed tomography and
magnetic resonance tomography on vaccinations, which have wiped out
some of the most dangerous diseases of mankind, through acting
antibiotics or other drugs and sophisticated heart surgery, etc. In this
direction there was in the past six to ten years more progress than in the
fifty years before. Many thousands of lives have been saved thanks to these
advances.

Seres service explained. Before his discovery, Dr. Still was working for
humanity as a doctor " particularly through the elimination of pain and
suffering "from the outside in, with the medical art and science of his time.
He was, as it should be a philanthropist, dissatisfied with his results,
searching for answers and ways to improve. At the time of his discovery
"something happened", an invisible factor, a step into the unknown. The
quality of his life as a doctor was changed, transformed. Or you could use
the word "transmutation" in order to explain what happened? As a result of
this "silent" action he became a philanthropist, whose primary interest was
the fact of humanity through the " restoration of health from the inside out
to serve. " He now understood the meaning and experience of the "vitality"
of his own nature and the same "vitality" in his patients as a unity of life. He
took this quality of "aliveness" that was given to him on without question;
The knowledge served him in his daily practice as a doctor, engineer and
philanthropist.
What happened at the time of its discovery, is something that has already
happened to hundreds of times people in the most diverse areas. It is part
of a learning process with such people and autodidacts who are looking for
a heartfelt response to their specifi c questions. It is precisely then,
if it is to happen, and not by intention.
Dr. Still gave the world the science of osteopathy and two clear, basic
principles that can be used to serve the needs of mankind: first, the principle
of health in the body physiology, which can be regarded as a law per se,
and Second, the principle of cause and
Effect that can be used in treating disease and / or trauma in the body
physiology, wherein each such problem is merely a consequence that can
be diagnosed and treated by causal areas to restore the processes of
health. Both principles may be used by clinicians living in his work with a
living patient.
The following statement by Dr. Still gives us an insight into his profound
knowledge and the quality of his experience:
"I hope e all those who read this to me, my full conviction will perceive that
the mind of God in nature its planning ability - unless plans are needed and has demonstrated the creators ung self-organizing laws no pattern for
the myriad of life forms ; he did well with the equipment and I-79

Still points
Revised version of a discussion, in 1986 during an
internal training of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching
Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, took place.
You have asked the question: What happens when the Still Point? That's a
good question, and I'll try anything to say about it - but it's not the answer,
because there is no answer to the question, what happens when a still point.

You walk through a still point by changing the relative function of a lever
on a fulcrum. You created st a complete exchange between the two ends
of the lever.
Now, I want you to not confuse, but I've given up trying to use the Still
Point; he is not a target of the treatment. I've even given up trying to look
for it. I Found A Million Still points - before, during, after ... and finally I gave
up. I take just as much as possible out of the way, as far as it is necessary
so that something can be done.
A still point is a physiological balancing act, the body goes through the
physiology of each patient. He may at any time, any place, to happen in
some way. Probably it comes spontaneously when the patient sleeps well
at night or in similar situations. The Still Point is the body's attempt to make
himself free, back into a fully motile mechanism. In treatment it is an
observable event that the practitioner can recognize as something that a
friend stattfi in the body physiology, which he does not voluntarily sought or
tries to evaluate. It is an anatomical-physiological change that brings about
the body, and I as a doctor had nothing to do with it. I do not even recognize
the Still Point. The fact that he stattfi friend, points out that the body
physiology decides to use it.
I am here simply an observer and not a man who pursues an aim.
Often Still Points are going to happen in front of you, but you can also
hufi g the
Making experience that you nd stattfi at some distance. You are about to
quietly work on a field in a patient, listen, and suddenly you realize that
something is happening somewhere else. Well, it has gone through a Still

The experience of the inner Sprens
In this course, we started with the bones of the cranium on the outside, then
inside gone through the reciprocal tension membrane, the rolling and
unrolling of the central nervous system have to taken and a fluid Drive the
cerebrospinal fluid, introduced into the neurokranialen mechanism. We
have seen that this mechanism has the capacity to do certain things and
certain patterns to be created en - twist, SidebendingRotation, vertical and
lateral shear and compression muster14. We have found that it can have
certain membranous joint dysfunctions and that he has a lot of joints. And
today we have drangehngt a detailed face.
Now I want you to just sit down yourselves for a little while and you should
look to yourselves. We want to reverse the process of training program this

week. I want you to become aware of cerebrospinalis you quietly and


without effort of the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid, the stattfi friend in
your minds - the turnover of the Fluid Drive. Feel very quiet the
cerebrospinal fluid, the fundamental basis of the primary respiratory
mechanism. Whether you can actually feel it or not: Be aware of basic
cerebrospinal fluid. I do not ask you, you feel active. Be you its just as aware
of Fluid Drive, the rhythmic fl uktuiert, heranfl ows and ebbs like the tide of
an ocean, within your complete craniosacral mechanism flows into and
flows out, flows out along the cranial nerves and along the spinal nerves,
further drives in the lymphatic system and a part of the lymphatic system your whole body will be an inflow and outflow of CSF

Meditation
This morning I want to do something I've never done before. I do not know
if it will work, but it's an interesting thought. Here in Dallas, there are quite
a few yoga groups, and as the student of yoga western bodies have, trying
to sit in non-Western positions, they come to me with physiological
dysfunctions that they by their attempts for a certain time sit and meditate,
have acquired. At the same time I have contact with at least two people, to
guide the meditation groups and may well sit in the position that is
appropriate for yoga meditation; and I believe that there is a physiological
reason why this position is used.
In the lotus position you sit not on its rump, as is the case with the reclined
sitting in a chair where you can put pressure on the sacrum, which limits
the primary and secondary respiratory mechanism. Instead, you sit upright
and slightly bent forward, with your spine straight, on his sit bones and
thighs. What happens here? The primary respiratory mechanism floats - the
whole mechanism of the skullcap to the sacrum depends as it were in the
air.
Since this involuntary mechanism moves rhythmically back and forth, the
liquid, the reciprocal tension membrane, the central nervous system and
the hinge mechanism can be as simple free-floating hanging. This allows
the potency in the cerebrospinal fluid to nourish every cell in the body, and
the reciprocal tension membrane, gently rocking the fascia in flexion /
external rotation and the counter-movement. It allows the bone, the bands,
the central nervous system and everything else to change. Your pattern is
formed on a micro level, so that they can zurckzukorrigieren in a more
normal physiological mechanism. You are in ends up almost in a state of
self-treatment when they are in this position; they make this mechanism a
living factor of function.

So sit down now in your chair, with your feet on the floor, with your spine
straight and slightly bent forward: So you're sitting on your sit bones and
rejects you not determined in the chair. Then, in silence, with his eyes
closed, thinking about a Krft strength cerebrospinal fluid, which expands
and contracts rhythmically. This is an inner feeling - try to feel himself a
body of liquid which comes at a still point and expand ated, comes at a still
point and ebbs, comes to a standstill point quietly in you

Chapter 3 - The Tide of cerebrospinal fluid
Chapter 3-1
The cerebrospinal fluid
These texts were written by a writing please set
out forward from the year 1977th
From the understanding of the cerebrospinal fluid in the anatomicphysiologic
Overall structure of the body tap into our concepts, which are rich in
anatomical and physiological details and - more importantly - to
philosophical details. Dr. Still noted:
"A thought comes to him that the cerebrospinal fluid is the highest known element that
contains the human body. As long as the brain does not produce this liquid in a large
amount, the invalid state of the body is maintained. Who can close, will see that this great
river of life and tapped the parched field must be watered immediately, otherwise the crop
health is lost forever. "15
And WG Sutherland added that the arterial flow was most important
though, the cerebrospinal fluid but the "supreme command" have and one
can observe its fluctuation within a natural cavity by palpation. The key to
understanding the cerebrospinal fluid is that it due to its
Fluctuation pattern by the practitioner for both the diagnosis and the
treatment can be used, and, more importantly, within the living body as an
anatomical and physiological unit in integrated function with the whole body.
One could say that one is dealing with the rechargeable battery of the life
and health in human physiology, if one understands the CSF and its
fluctuation pattern correctly.
Anatomical considerations

first serious study of e Liquor has 1825

lower. Other substances such as creatinine, uric acid, urea, not organic

slightly different from the fluid found in the ventricles.
Some studies relate except to the described circulation paths also in a
way the tides within the cerebrospinal fluid, a characteristic of a fluctuation.
However, such indications are not accompanied by a clear acceptance of
the phenomenon, but instead say that you have indeed observed the
existence of such a pattern, but it can not explain.
Since most of these studies served the purpose to determine the factors
of CSF circulation, were their primary interests in this Th ema and not to
declare a fluctuation pattern to fi nd and its significance.
Physiological Considerations
In an editorial the Lancet in 1975 was notable following quote:
"One function of the lymphatic system is to cleanse the tissue spaces of substances
that leak from capillaries or from the tissue itself and not re-absorbed into the bloodstream
is. The meninges and the nervous tissue of the brain have no lymphatic channels; does
this omission mean that the problem of the removal does not exist?
... Apart from the MAIN TRIAL USS Liquor back into the bloodstream through the
arachnoid villi of the CSF could also be purified by the Plexi chorodei of substances. This
idea seems bizarre when one thinks only of the plexi in the lateral ventricles, because
they already produce the liquor, for agt you how

Brain with the lymphatic system, "" Our studies of the compound of

"and
About the penetration of various substances in the nerve trunk and its
movement along the nerve."
In his chapter on "rheumatism" Speransky describes a method, the liquor to "pump":
"The pump was done by means of a lumbar puncture, performed on the seated patient.
We used a 10.0-CC> Record <-needle. The retraction and re-injecting the liquid was
between 8 and
Repeated 40 times. Last time, the liquid was removed. The whole thing
must go neither too slow nor too fast in front of him. A quick extraction,
particularly in the second part of the puncture, always brings with it a
headache which last until the evening, and sometimes even the next day.
In a few cases, there was vomiting. "
This clumsy mechanical pumps of Liquor within the dural sheath and the
Subarachnoidalrume has been applied in a number of neurodystrophen
processes or diseases. The methods used were to say the least
dangerous. Spreranskys work was also then very controversial in his time
and.
Characteristically is his chapter 21 introductory statement: "This book
can not provide a final" It may in fact, no other conclusions, except the
realization that the knowledge in the area of the cerebrospinal fluid is highly
complex.. The Liquor exchanged ions, metabolites, and trophic factors with
the choroid plexi, with the nerve cells of the central, peripheral and
autonomic nervous system, the pituitary-hypothalamic axis, with the pineal
gland and the lymphatic system. In addition, the thin Liquorfi lm used in the
Subarachnoidalrumen together with the Cisternas as waterbed to protect
the brain and spinal cord.
Philosophical considerations
To take advantage of the cerebrospinal fluid in a diagnostic and treatment
plan, it takes more than a synthesis of anatomic and physiological details
and more than one guided by laboratory testing study of cerebrospinal fluid
characteristics in health, trauma or disease. To experience this vibrant I93
I am talking about the following: If I work as doctor with the living
fluctuation patterns of the cerebrospinal fluid in patients, I'm involved in this
fluctuation pattern. I have participated in the experience of what I observe
by palpation with sensory input, and what changed as a result of the applied
in the form of a motor output palpatory skills within the pattern. The only to
be considered the end of reality is constant change - change that friend

stattfi while I watch the pattern change that friend stattfi while applied
palpatorisches Can pattern adorns modifi, and change that in the
anatomical-physiological structure of the patient takes place when
continuing the work happened on this day after my diagnosis and treatment
program.
It is extremely important that the practitioner takes on his palpating the
functioning of the cerebrospinal fluid, the role of stakeholders.
I like to be the idea, party rather than an outside observer, when it is
necessary to take care of a problem in the patient's body - like this now a
dysfunction of the musculoskeletal system, a fascial dysfunction pattern or
an interconnected with the primary respiratory mechanism. I have a feeling
that I directly experienced the changes that stattfi ends in patients at
diagnosis as in the treatment and so in relation to the type of dysfunction
get a better diagnostic insight. I can therefore Ussen influenced food better
at the potential that day corrections and the treatment results. I fi nd it
necessary to accept the idea that I'm a party, and maintain this awareness
during my diagnostic and therapeutic review. Because as a participant to
reach to what I experience, as well as in the treatment results a much
deeper quality than in the role of an outsider observer.
If we want to take advantage of the sensory and motor skills of our
consciousness while working with the natural resources in the body,
including the cerebrospinal fluid heard we need to better understand the
mechanisms at issue here, first of three concept E - self-organization, staff
turnover and transmutation - defi ne and two principles - the breath of life
and the breathing air - explain.
Self-organization: the innate human ability to live physically, mentally,
emotionally and philosophically express.
Everyone has two mechanisms that interact lifetime: an arbitrary ability
to work, play and rest, and a complex UNI 95
The detectable by palpation, basic rhythmic fluctuation pattern of the
CSF represent longitudinal, lateral and alternating spiral pattern. There are
probably many other patterns or combinations of patterns that are very
small and therefore not so easy to notice. A specifi Scheres rhythmic
fluctuation pattern of cerebrospinal fluid can be palpated, by directing the
cerebrospinal fluid along a maximum diagonal direction in any part of the
body.
Generally it is believed that the turnover rate of the cerebrospinal fluid is
in a healthy state at 10 to 14 times per minute. However, you can the
various states dysfunction in individuals according to
vary and so may be very slow in chronic diseases, increases with fever,
however.
More important than its speed but is the quality of the fluctuation pattern.
If the state is healthy, you can feel the palpating a full amplitude, vitality and
lively dynamics. Is contrast against rheumatoid arthritis, fi nds due to stasis
in connective tissue and lymph system, a thin, watered-down, low
amplitude, and after a meningitis or encephalitis empfi nds them as sluggish

as the reciprocal tension membrane has lost the quality of their


physiological tone. These are just a few of many examples of clear the
variable quality of the liquor-fluctuation pattern. The lively cerebrospinal
fluid reacts with its off enkundigen fluctuation to the challenges of a
changing from hour to hour and from day to day health pattern in the
individual organism and refl ected by changes in their quality and speed
these processes.
Dr. Sutherland tells us that the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid is
paramount, as a phenomenon in itself, and I totally agree with this thought.
There are others who disagree, and want to bring them to the contractility
of the central nervous system or the rhythmic inhalation or exhalation of the
respiratory system in conjunction. It is off Obviously that relationships and
relationships are between all living tissues and the speed of their rhythmic
function, motility of the central nervous system, the rocking motion of the
reciprocal tension membrane, the rhythmic respiratory mechanism and
others, both voluntary and involuntary mechanisms and that grace this
fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid and modifi be reversed again graces
modifi from her. Nevertheless, we will as a clinician with our conscious

sem area improved, but its inherent function is not the body for immediate
use.
2. Be aware of an attentive and at the same quiet palpation of all the
components of the self-organization, the uktuation with the quality of the
involuntary movement Liquorfl and associated in the body. Palpiere now to
found the overall vitality of the anatomical-physiological mechanisms.
Although this vitality is not necessarily an electrical nature, I like to compare
it with a measuring volts and make an estimated findings for each patient.
In other words: The vitality of the average patient should feel as if they
would be at 110 volts. In the case of a dysfunction, such as a chronic
breakdown of the nervous system, the voltage V may be 60, 50 or less on
the other hand. The same applies to rheumatoid arthritis. If the patient is
in a state of acute fatigue, this comparison may be with a volt also yield low
results, but in which you can feel that it is temporary and will probably
correct for a good night's sleep yourself. For a professional athlete, the
tension is not at 110 but at 220 volts.
This is also necessary at all that these people have to endure in their sport.
This is a useful test, because it gives you a sense of the quality of vitality
with which you work in the diagnosis and treatment of problems. Sufficient
VOLTAGE means sufficient vitality in order to carry out a correction and to
have them develop further, so as you wish it to you. Low VOLTAGE is an
indication that your corrective attempts should not exceed the capacity of
the patient to use the correction because over-correction in this state of
reduced vitality not last and the already prevailing local and general
exhaustion of the patient will intensify.
This second of my recommended test should not be confused with the
counting of the Cranial Rhythmic Impulse (CRI), because it is more

sensitive and aussagekft strength. About two I mentioned tests could


speak even longer; But I have said enough Hoff entlich to call your
attention to it.
Transmutation: The conversion of a thing to another; the change of a
chemical element to another.
The ability to transmutation is a natural phenomenon, which is in the body
for a lifetime present. For rhythmic fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid that
ability is part of the transmutation. It creates a rhythmic balanced
interchange with the choroid plexus, the physiological centers in the I-99
a CV4 technique; This time it took 30 minutes. Within another week, the
skin healed completely on his legs and remained healthy.
Howard Lippincott, DO, describes the results of the CV4 technique so:
"It's hard to be cautious when it comes to the benefits achieved through the
compression of the fourth ventricle. Because if this powerful liquid is activated by said
technique leads to results which justify the enthusiasm.
This leads to a beneficial effect on the overall circulatory
system, comprising
Decrease of congestion, edema and ischemia, as far as this is possible
without surgery.
The metabolic processes are improved, including the nutrition of all the tissues and the
gradual absorption and calcium-fi brser deposits that are not physiological or
compensatory nature.
The compression of the fourth ventricle also improves the function of organs, and in
infections, the immune system is strengthened by the effect on the spleen, pancreas and
liver.
The endocrine system is regulated according to the immediate needs of the body.
The cerebrospinal fluid has the change of command on the substance, much of the
involuntary functions, and the autoprotektiven mechanism of the organism.
Dr. Sutherland pointed out that secondary osteopathic dysfunctions after compression
of the ventricle are less off Obviously. The compression is therefore useful to determine
the primary dysfunction. "21
As you can see, is the involuntary mobility of the body, revitalizes with its
micro-movements of flexion / external rotation and extension / internal
rotation. In addition, the battery life - which we evaluate comparable volts instantly transmuted / converted toward the physiological ideal state for
these patients, were the now 110 or 220 volts.
A controlled compression of the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid by
being downloaded to their short rhythmic period or her arrest point and pass
through this brings, can be of the parietal bones, the os frontal and the Ossa

not necessarily have a compression of the fourth Vent

Patients had to spend a lot of persuasion, to keep them as long at the bar
until the desired results were achieved.
A comparable number of cases with rheumatoid arthritis responded
similarly positive and gained their inherent vitality. Although the aff enes
joints were still limited, but they hurt a lot less. Also, the treatment dragged
on for six to nine months. Two of the patients did not respond as strongly,
but even they felt an improvement. As with the previously described case
of the 55s it took with them at the beginning of treatment until there ceased
breastfeeding spot. This was, however, from week to week better and they
responded to the rhythmically balanced exchange in their clogged s tissue.
In many cases, were terminally ill cancer patients, some for example with
inoperable brain tumors, in recent weeks and months to live relatively painfree and tolerable before her death.
This controlling the fluctuations of cerebrospinal fluid by putting them
down brings to their short rhythmic period, I applied to a wide variety of
ways and in hundreds of cases, to satisfy the most diverse requirements. I
do not use that in every patient who comes to my office, but whenever it is
aware that it is appropriate. It always corresponds to the respective
challenge, though usually with much less dramatic effects as in the cases
described. However, by palpation and Applied palpation skills I erspre that
was achieved, what was necessary in this day of treatment.
The principle of life breath: Dr. According to Sutherland, the potency of
the cerebrospinal fluid breathing mechanism can be regarded as a
fundamental principle in the operation of the primary. He described it as a
breath of life, as an invisible element and gave her another name, our
Drawing attention to their importance for the functioning of the

Need presence on this earth. In order to manifest ourselves as an

Awareness, and makes us understand that we are not just our own product
are (even if we think it's the most important thing), but the product of our
entire environment, and must be in a rhythmically balanced exchange with
that environment. These are some of the elements that are necessary for
an integrated function of the self-organization of human life in order to
maintain health and to adapt to disease or trauma.
As Handler a constantly evolving, huge range of diagnostic and
therapeutic tools is given to us that we use in order to lodge objections with
the person who comes to us with a problem finding one and treat him. The
most valuable of these tools include our own conscious perception, our
feeling and our Applied palpatory ability. With them, we have part of the
internal environment of the patient, whether in a primary care or in a
complementary treatment in the context of examination and treatment
program.
For purposes of this discussion, I have divided the self-organization of
the people in a principle of life breath and a principle of breathing air.
However, in reality they are one - one in the inherent ability of the individual
to express the life physically, mentally, emotionally and philosophically. As
an osteopath I can use all the possibilities of modern medicine and surgery
to help the patient who seeks my support. And when a party I can thanks

As Dr. AT Still noted in his e Autobiografi, he has the basics of
Science of osteopathy not invented - he discovered it. Equally Dr. WG
Sutherland invented the concept Cranial not - he discovered his
fundamental principles. He found that the cerebrospinal fluid is exchanged
with what he called the Breath of Life. If you control the fluctuation of the
cerebrospinal fluid, by bringing him down to a relative standstill point,
immediately there is a transmutation, an exchange between the highest
known element and the cerebrospinal fluid. This exchange results in a
nourishing factor, which may be called sparks and bioenergy, as well as
Further, still to be discovered factors that whatsoever cerebrospinal fluid
is ends throughout the body physiology to fi between the cerebrospinal
fluid and the central nervous system, the capillaries of the choroid plexus,
and where, act. Complicated, lifeless machinery - such as in a car, a
dishwasher, a moon rocket - needs a spark in their systems, so that they
can start and run. Biological systems have built for millennia a spark and
a Bioe nergy system in its mechanisms. This is not an esoteric or
religious imagination; It's a simple, bioenergetic, physiological fact.

I-107
Body goes from head to toe in his involuntary mobility ten times per minute
in anatomic-physiologic flexion / external rotation and extension / internal
rotation - through a micro mobility throughout the functional model of the
whole body.
I have an arbitrary body with which I walk, I can shake or be otherwise
do something I want. And at the same time, while I do that, as I stand here,
these involuntary flexion / external rotation and extension / internal rotation
takes place in the entire mechanism that belongs to us.
Let us also science Liche" evidence is lacking that the primary
respiratory mechanism is responsible for all this involuntary system
throughout the body, we can still say categorically - and this claim can be
put up defi nitely - that this is the only way in which the primary breath
mechanism operates. There are within the primary respiratory mechanism
no muscle work or other arbitrary mechanisms that induce him to this flexion
/ external rotation and extension / internal rotation - this is really the only
way, as he works.
There is a mechanism, and this means that we have to study it as a
mechanism. We have the bones, the meninges, the central nervous system
and the cerebrospinal fluid study as working units - as work units belonging
to something that does what it does, because it was intended and
because that simply is just the only way, how it can work.
My task now is to talk about the amount of cerebrospinal fluid in this
mechanism. According to Dr. Sutherland is the Liquor cerebrospinalis the
primary, fundamental principle in the primary respiratory mechanism. After
Dr. AT Still, he is the highest known element in the human body, and there
are other places in its written s, suggesting that there is something different
from other Krperfl uids that there is something in the cerebrospinal fluid,
which a basic law expresses.
The cerebrospinal fluid is a fluid drive. He fl uktuiert and changes and
does not require the rolling and unrolling of the central nervous system, so
that it can uktuieren fl. He fl uktuiert, point. This fact you have to accept. I
have accepted it on the day, when I heard them say Will Sutherland. I
assumed that it was true, and I have never found a contrary proof in my
patients. I do not care really what makes him the Fluid Drive - I want to let
him work easy - it is a principle.
The cerebrospinal fluid has an automatic fluid Drive, the things GEI 109
sought to initiate a twist left, it stopped before it ever anfi ng. Well,
What is the result of a pronounced twist like this? The central nervous
system must be twisted in a twist as well as the reciprocal tension
membrane and the bony elements. Due to the pronounced torsional
mechanism of aqueduct of Sylvius was twisted this patient like a tube and
it was not a good fluid exchange between the third and fourth ventricles
instead. They probably had their lives a torsion mechanism, but then had
befallen her something: She had fallen, had twists, sat down too hard or

anything else, and thereby brought this mechanism in an even stronger


torsion.
To correct this situation, I took them into the Rechtstorionsmuster,
reinforced it, and waited. In this way we had the entire mechanism - the
Fluid Drive, the motile nervous system and the reciprocal tension
membrane - begin to deal with this Torsionsmuster. The end of the
treatment carried out on that day was the time when the central nervous
system so was quiet, there was practically no movement, as well as the
reciprocal tension membrane was so quiet that there was practically no
movement, and as the cerebrospinal fluid quiet was to a point of infinite
silence. Thus, the patient went through a still point of the liquid, the Central
Nervous system and the reciprocal membrane voltage. In the Still Point
her head began to get comfortable zurckzuentspannen in a mechanism
that was consistent for them. Later, when I examined her again, she was
still in a pronounced Rechtstorsionsmuster, but now was the hose, the
aqueduct of Sylvius, do its job. He was able to leave the liquids back and
that was the end of their headaches. What I want to emphasize here is that
the cerebrospinal fluid had to be taken from us by a still point, so that it
could function properly - to get the correction.
Exactly the same thing we are trying with the CV4 technique, so the
compression of the fourth ventricle to achieve. We are keen to bring down
this fundamental principle to a point where it can speak to change in the
course. Where it does so, it meets the needs of the individual patient's
physiology. It creates its potency factor. It exchanges views with the
Krperfl uids. Up to the lymphatics of the toes down clears up everything.
If we bring down there to a still point, it may change in all these areas the
transition, and we have infl uenced the complete physiology.
When we talk about a CV4 technique (lateral or turnover), speak I-111
hinzubekommen correction of membranous-articulated connection. Forget
it. Sick membranes correct not good, they can not. There is none
Tonusqualitt in this reciprocal tension membrane; it is already there, yes
- but it is not working.
So is your CV4 technique as a regular part of your treatment for a
Period of several weeks or months, depending on the chronicity of the
Problem, gradually the whole of the tone quality, the function of the
reciprocal
Restore membrane voltage and the normal tension and thickness. If this
is correct, then you not only get better further corrections, but makes the
patient again living people.
In volume by weight cases, patients always ask how long it will take. I tell them then:
"You forget how long it will take. We will stay tuned until you are my tired and I yours,
and there will be in the first six months no noticeable change. If you do not want to join
in the, we do not need to start. "In these circumstances it is then possible maybe one in
three on the treatment a. But also gets results.
Nervous breakdown: There are people with a total nervous breakdown to
get here - and I'm not talking here about psychosomatic cases - I'm talking

about people who have suffered a nervous breakdown physiologically. You


pick up on their mechanism and feel that they do not have an electric
charge. You barely get to 20 volts (and should still be at 110 volts) - a sick
nervous system precisely. They had a nervous breakdown and its
mechanism is weak, tired, running with low energy. This is chronic, it's been
around for years so; some months were better and some were worse, but
it's a lousy mechanism. The nervous system is sick. It has no charge.
What these people recharges?Once a week a CV4 technique, and as
long as a treatment of rheumatoid arthritis - that is six to twelve months.
You have to tell them " you will feel some time not even better, and I'm not
going to try to prove to you that it goes upwards. The mechanism needs us
both prove that you are you better. "Suddenly, after two to three months, it
does not feel like 20, but as 25 volts. When patients come the next time, it
falls back to 23 and then rises to 27 Later they come, and the thing is
charging. And finally they come one day in practice (the corrections fi nd
normally between treatments instead, not while the patient on the treatment

Rheumatoid arthritis: I expect that all my patients with rheumatoid arthritis
also consult other doctors. Me you are looking for on account of the things
that I know about the science of the human body, and what they get from
me, as good as I can. My rheumatoid arthritis patients I treat with the CV4
technique point. Techniques in which one works with the individual joints,
etc., I do not use. For me, rheumatoid arthritis is a disease of the connective
tissue, collagen, from the head up to the feet. Everywhere there is a stasis.
Suppose you want a method by which you and the complete collagen
system on most direct and fastest way
Way infl Ussen and anchor the desire in him can exchange all of its fluids
and cells, so it may be so, as it should be really, from head to toe, even in
all the diseased joints. What would you then apply for a kind of
physiological medicine? A CV4 technique, period.

I-115
brings.In any body tissue there is trouble, all fascia, in all lymph channels
of the body. So I'm not only a CV4 technique in the field of the fourth
ventricle, I make a CV4 technique that influenced food the whole pattern of
the cerebrospinal fluid throughout the body infl.
In one case, I had to sit 45 minutes and wait until the liquid through came
in a still point, and through him, before this Supraokziput was hot. When the
patient returned the next time, it took only 40 minutes and the next time only
30 So we moving in the right direction. In about six to twelve months it will
take the normal seven minutes, and the patient will be alive. He will still
have rheumatoid arthritis - that's not the point. But he will be alive again.
I want to emphasize here that the CV4 technique is a lively treatment. It
is necessary to read the quality of the liquid in the mechanism and the
quality of the
Tissue. In a CV4 technique is not simply a routine in which one invests his
hands, something does, and then passes it. You really need the quality of
the entire mechanism Read, if you apply a CV4 technique.
How much pressure exerted on her Supraokziput, varies from patient to
patient and from
Treatment to treatment differently - some are tougher, and some are gentle
it. You can get overreact when you make a CV4 technique on Supraokziput,
especially if the patient is a dysfunction in okzipitomastoidalen area has regardless of whether this dysfunction has existed for 25 years or 25
minutes. These patients have a compression of supraocciput in relation to
the temporal bone on the side of dysfunction - and now you compress it
even more. Dysfunctions in okzipitomastoidalen area are notorious for
triggering overreactions. You can really have a problem,
if one makes a CV4 technique in the field of okzipitomastoidalen
dysfunction while haphazardly applies the same power from both sides of
the supraocciput.
Let me give you a little tip - but it is different in each patient, and will not
work for everyone so, as I describe it. You will it, depending on the quality
and requirement on each patient must adjust. So here's my tip: Because
this Supraokziput has been driven into the temporal in the os already up,
it's on this side have the compression that you want to achieve by a CV4
technique. Therefore, you are the side where the Supraokziput has
okzipitomastoidale dysfunction, only support and turns on the other side of
a compression until one of the Tide Liquor CEI 117
considers it until you can feel the reaction of cerebrospinal fluid, which is
that it is quiet and comes to a point where he changed his inner fulcrum.
This approach from the sacrum from being used in all cases where the
cranium suspected such a strong trauma that you can not ranwagt there,
but still a bit of theory erapeutisches want to do for the patient. We know it
when we bring the liquor into the silence, comes to an exchange of fluid
balance; the vital, physiological centers are stimulated; the tension in the

fascia and ligaments Intrazellulrrumen is graced modifi; an immune


response is stimulated - it happens a lot. So if we bring the cerebrospinal
fluid via an approach to the sacrum in the silence, we can do much good to
care without us, that we might create problems in addition at a potential
skull fracture or any other traumatic injury.
Lateral fluctuation
We have a technique by which we created a lateral fluctuation en. Here we
summarize the temporal bones in the way how we do it the findings of its
movement: Our hands are under the skull with your thumbs along the Proc.
mastoidei and the mastoid shares;are in our fingers ends below the neck.
If we then our fingers, our Mittelfi nger, very gently rolling,
We will automatically rotate Os temporale gently in the external rotation and
the other in the internal rotation, and the liquid body of the liquor will launch
a fluctuation pattern uktuiert from side to side fl. We roll our Mittelfi nger as
I said barely, only until we feel the lateral fluctuation over moves and swells
on the other side. As soon as we feel that this thing to the other moves from
one side, we reduce the scale of our roll, so we restrain them. We have
started something, and now we begin to hold it back, it gradually to slow
down. In other words: The fluid will over there, but we do not quite allow
that, we begin to return. Little by little we slow this fluctuation, until there is
a change in the fulcrum within the CSF. Carried out in this way, it is a
comforting thing. It soothes potential
Via reactions after treatment. Understanding the lateral fluctuation and to
use in practice, is important.

The cerebrospinal fluid - a mechanism
Revised version of a lecture given during a basic course
in 1986 Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
We as individuals live a life of voluntary and involuntary mechanisms. There
are millions of different mechanisms within the whole body of the patient
physiology. Our arbitrary mechanism allows us to do everything - from
jogging to quiet sleep. This mechanism of action is different in each
individual, depending on its overall quality of life.
On the other hand there is the quiet primary respiratory mechanism - a
completely involuntary unit of function, physiology, activity and vitality that
can be an active, vibrant, arbitrary mechanism us. We do not think about
the changes that happen in the function inside the fluctuation of the
cerebrospinal fluid and the primary respiratory mechanism - they exist
simply. We accept life as it is. We accept the fact that our mechanism works
- we do not think about it. When we encountered en us and talk about it, it

becomes a topic of conversation - but usually we waste no thought in mind


that we are a primary respiratory mechanism. The involuntary mechanism
is the thing that keeps us alive and functioning as a manifestation of life.
The fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid is a part of the primary
respiratory mechanism, which also includes the motility of the central
nervous system and the mobility of the reciprocal tension membrane, the
cranial bones and the sacrum. We can not be separated from them - they
all form a single unit. Any trauma or any disease that affects any part of the
body, is a
Eff ect on the primary respiratory mechanism have; and any recovery
towards health, any correction of dysfunction within the voluntary
mechanism in the body that needs to include an improvement in the function
of the primary respiratory mechanism - it is a functional unit. And as it is a
mechanism.
I-121
These are small strudel, which - perhaps in different areas of the central
nervous system - roll up and roll out.
I speak to you about things that can be observed by every clinician who
understands the mechanism and with the help of his palpatory skills to read
the learning that comes from the patient. The lateral Tide as the longitudinal
relatively easy to fi nd; both are great and the whole body moves with them.
The spiral tides are against how these little animals crawl along the beach,
or the spirals forming the back and forth waving sea grass near the coast
sometimes. They are not noisy and off Obviously. Such spiral tides suggest
may indicate a straight stattfi Ndende local change.
And then there are what I "undercurrents" 24 call. An "undercurrent" is a
Tide, which can be used by the practitioner to make a difference, as a
motivation for the existing Tidenmechanismus the patient to change his
function pattern. By it uses, can be the
Tidenmechanismus in patients adorn some modifi. Excluding the patient
supine his feet in Dorsifl ection bring, this causes the whole mechanism of
the body unit to go into flexion. Then while the patient holds his feet in
Dorsifl ection, a lateral fluctuation induced, we pretty soon two tides, the
work in the body: a longitudinal and above the lateral. Of course, all this
takes place under the control of the practitioner who has learned the gently
s Working with the mechanism and can induce fluctuation slowly, he reads
what he palpated carefully, and lets these things happen within the patient.
Try out the ends and then tried herauszufi yourself why you want it might
apply.
There is another Tide, which, I think, from the universe came to me.I had
a patient with a rather serious s, further-calibrating, complicated problem. I
tried quietly to read this Fluid Drive, and worked here within the body
physiology of that patient. Suddenly the fact was aware that a greater Tide
was there, in parallel to that 8 cycles per minute
occurred. Here was a big tide that felt as if it came from somewhere inside,
and they expanded, stopped, expanded, stopped, expanded, stopped. It

their complaints are.In case of psoas spasm, her puts a hand under these
spastic lumbar and the other hand on the abdomen about it so that the
problem is between your hands. Now feel after this involuntary tidal
mechanism of cerebrospinal fluid, which you have already felt throughout
the body. He feels in this area of dysfunction equal to?
No, he's eingeschnkt, there is so much disability that interferes with the
fluctuation pattern. It can be seen that one does not feel the same vigor as
in the whole person. Mark you, how that feels this dysfunction.
Now make her your treatment.You give the patient an appropriate for this
day and this particular problem treatment. What a technique you use, does
not matter. When you're done with the treatment, and thinks you have your
correction or whatever made, lay your hand back under these lumbar and
traces of the same Tide that you first felt it throughout the body. Then, when
you realize that the lumbar region just treated can express the involuntary
movement better, it means that your treatment of the lumbar spasm has
yielded truly corrective results, because the
"Boss," the entire involuntary mechanism, is now also present locally in this
area. You can feel that it's happened, something's going on.
However, if you go back to this area, re-examined and the same feeling
of stasis fi nd still treating the patient, I can guarantee you that you have not
accomplished much. Even if it leaves the practice, they will be back arrived
at the same complaints with which they came in. This tide can thus be used
as a small, invisible diagnostic clue. We can use this silent, involuntary
mechanism as a hint that leads us in our treatment programs for the rest of
the body.
Ask yourself quietly in each patient: How is the quality of this primary vital
function in this patient? What is the quality in the healthy areas,
as it is in the area of dysfunction, as it is before and after each office visit?
If you work with the stress patterns and disorders of your patients, you're
always aware of quiet, the fact that this fluctuation pattern, this entire unit
constantly is your silent partner and helps you to bring about corrective
changes in the areas of dysfunction; because your goal for these patients
is to restore health. Patients are not only there so that is cracked or
corrected its dysfunction. They are there to get rid of the stress, the loss of
function, movement disorder, the I-125

The body is a unit
Provided so a certain time to exist, the body is a complete system consisting
of tissues and fluids in constant mobility and motility. It is equipped with
voluntary and involuntary mechanisms which make it possible to use it in
everyday life and for maintaining health. Dr. Still gave us the science of
osteopathy, which allows us to understand the body as a unit, including the
cranial concept.
Dr. Sutherland has hufi g stresses that its contribution to the detailed
anatomy and physiology of the craniosacral mechanism, a continuation of
the science of osteopathy within the meaning of Dr. Still's vision. A body - a

be, if it manifests itself. I do not know its origin; I feel not that they occur in
every patient, and I do not induziere to begin their rhythmic pattern. They
showed me the first time several years ago when I treated a patient and
watched the 8 to 12 times per minute and other decongestants Tide did
their work in patients. Since then I have often observed this massive tide
and can report that in every patient it is not universally the same, it is
expressed individually in each patient. I never know when they will
themselves runs, and I do not know where to return when they aufh work
rt in a particular patient.
There are hundreds of self-regulating mechanisms in the body
physiology, but now we want the involuntary mobility of rapid, 8 to
12 times per minute running and the slow, stattfi ndenden within 10 minutes
6 times Tide deal. Both tidal movements can be palpated when developing
a trained sense of touch. Palpated to the presence of these tides, should
be done preferably as a party, as in quantum mechanics. In this process,
the therapist joins with its sensory input, to participate in the movement of

the respective Tide while they performed their work in the patient's
physiology. Both tides are noticeable both in health and in injuries and / or
illness. The quality of Tidenbewegung varies however, depending on
whether a healthy, a traumatized or diseased state prevails, sometimes
depending on the problem locally, sometimes referred to as a total unit of
body tissue function.
Both tides are inherent, innate and involuntary self-regulating
mechanisms, whose main objective is the maintenance of health. They are
factors that contribute to the efforts of the body, in the case of
To heal trauma and / or disease itself. The reciprocal balancing exchanges,

The fast Tide: The fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid, the friend of 8 to
12 times per minute stattfi, is one of the fl uid components of the involuntary
movement of mittellinigen and paired structures. The cerebrospinal fluid
and its tidenartige fluctuation has been studied for years. Its fluctuation
pattern can be modifi ed to meet what needs physiology in patients. An
understanding of how you can use the CSF and its fast Tide will likely
promote the understanding of the function of the slow tide. A Tide in the
Tide.
The cerebrospinal fluid is a component of the primary
Atemmmechanismus; an involuntary mechanism to the principle the highest
known
Element - the CSF - including, where is the invisible breath of life at home.
Recognizes the science of osteopathy and accepted all the physiological
mechanisms that created the health of every human being s and
maintained; and the vitality factors of fast and slow tides are certainly
fundamental aspects of these health principles.
The fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid Cerebrospinal can be observed
by means of palpation. The existing pattern of rapid fluctuation Tide can
stand out modifi by gently, gradually in its rhythmic tides restricts
intelligently the movement of cerebrospinal fluid until its turnover falls to a
still point and this goes through. This passing through the Still Point fi a
friend rather than change in the rhythmic fluctuation of the cerebrospinal
fluid that is good for the whole body physiology at a physiological level - a
short but potent transmutation from the inside, from the liquor out.

Dr. Howard Lippincott describes the result of a compression of the fourth


ventricle, so the technique for slowing the longitudinal fluctuation, when
applied carefully to adorn the fluctuation of cerebrospinal fluid to modifi:
"It's hard to be cautious when it comes to the benefits achieved through the
compression of the ventricle. Because if this powerful liquid is activated by said
technique leads to results which justify the enthusiasm. This leads to a beneficial effect
on the overall circulatory system, comprising
Decrease of congestion, edema and ischemia, as far as possible without
surgery.
The metabolic processes are improved, including the nutrition of all the tissues and the

rheumatoid arthritis not only have amazing changes in their physiological
vitality, but also in terms of their symptoms indicate a generally positive
trend towards health. The need in the first treatment for 30 minutes reduced
to 15 minutes and each time then shortens the treatment time further.
This type of clinical problem illustrates an important fact:
The whole body physiology of movement of mittellinigen and paired
structures is there when the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid down to
her still point and is brought through him.
As described by Dr. Lippincott, change all involuntary mechanisms when
the Tidenfunktion is graced modifi. The tone of the tissue and the fluid can
checked before and after use of such a technique
will.Anyone who has a trained sense of touch and palpation skills and
knows the anatomical and physiological mechanisms, which provide the
fast Tide and the involuntary movement of mittellinigen and paired
structures in the body unit diagnostic data before and after a corrective
treatment, and he can also in the treatment process itself use. Find Health
"means for the practitioner in the case of rheumatoid arthritis, to introduce
a compression of the fourth ventricle in the mechanism, which means that
the seeker after health resources of the patient from the inside stimulate its
own self-healing abilities. It is a continuous process that ends in the
correction and change usually between treatments stattfi. Over time, the
relative health, which is accessible for people with this type of clinical
problem, manifest. The point here is that in this patient a lifetime health is
searched, not a cure his arthritis.
Slow Tide: 6 times in 10 minutes; it is a physical phenomenon that occurs
in the body physiology. In some cases, the slow Tide shows their presence
during the application of a certain corrective treatment, while they will not
appear in another case, if one carries out the same corrective technique.
I suspect that it was the type of use from me corrective treatment
technique, which enabled me to feel the slow Tide for the first time a few

years ago and since then many times. There are different types of
osteopathy in the I-133
even the relatively healthy. If this Tidenwelle has reached its highest level,
there is a short pause and then she begins herauszuebben. It seems that
the full addition Ebben from all tissues and fluid spaces as well
takes a lot of time, such as filling. After another short break, they come
back in, pause, ebbs addition - and this happened 6 times in a 10 minute
period.
The quality of the slow Tide varies with problems of different patients and
may be different in each case in the same patient at different times.
Interesting case study shows how this slow Tide works: The patient had a
serious clinical problem there, which required weekly treatment, to give it
as a support for his recovery the maximum self-treatment input. While
several treatments to slow the tide did not show. But when she appeared,
her first wave was a powerful intumescent filling the body and physiology
mediated a feeling as if she had to force their way against the resistance of
the fluids and tissues of the body literally. She came to its climax, paused
and then ebbed out with almost the same urgency. Then was a brief pause,
and the second wave came in, and with it a sense, as they try to cope with
the consequences of the first wave - a reassuring infl uence. The third wave
appeared in her Auff Bucket Fill and out Ebben practical as a relief. Thus
the appearance of the slow tide in this treatment was completed; total
issued three waves in 6 minutes. In the meantime, went on the selfcorrecting treatment in matters of local somatic dysfunction, but was during
the three cycles of the slow tide and even then effi ciently. The following
weekly treatments slow the Tide did not appear every time.
Off Obviously it was necessary for the physiology of the patient precisely at
the time of their appearance in his treatment program.
Unlike the fast, 8 to 12 times per minute stattfi Ndende Tide, which can
be modifi decorate with a variety of techniques in their function way, the
slow tide seems to be a in themselves and in the patient's physiology to be
inherent unit in which you do not try to decorate them or their work to modifi.
I fi nd it more effi cient, simply continue my efforts, self-correcting, to induce
healing changes in the local areas of dysfunction, and integrating all the
effects of the slow tide in the local treatment, while it is in the whole body at
the filling and ebbing. Through bringing a ligamentous or fascial strain
through his still point toward a of I-135
somatic dysfunction, to finally bring the healthy element to the fore, which
should be there. If this health factor then shows the palpating hands of the
practitioner, this makes every effort to work with him instead of with the
superimposed stress mechanism. In other words: The practitioner seeks so
to speak hand in hand with the body physiology of patients coming from
inside recovery.
He affirmed the structure and function and their reciprocal interaction and
developed palpatory skills to use these principles. The body physiology of

the patient directs the practitioner in his efforts to meet their needs by giving
it provides three tools: the involuntary mobility mittellinigen and paired
structures that life in a rhythm
8-12 times per minute is at work; within this mobility mittellinigen and paired
structures stattfi Ndende fast Tide - a mechanism of cerebrospinal fluid with
its potency, modifi ible for the needs of the patient physiology; and the slow
tide that comes in about 6 times within 10 minutes and hinausebbt, and their
functioning within the body physiology probably has a vitality factor. And

Beginning mentioned by Dr. AT Still repeatedly stressed maxim: " Health

The task of diagnostic palpation in K
raniosakralen mechanism
Lecture February 1983rd
Palpation of the craniosacral mechanism
Dr. AT Still mediated the osteopathic practitioner following concepts: The
role of the artery is outstanding. The body has an innate ability to heal itself;
and between structure and function is a reciprocal relationship. Dr. William
G. Sutherland added another fundamental concept added: Arterial flow is
the highest, but the High Command has the cerebrospinal fluid, the
fluctuation can be observed within a natural cave with the help of palpation
when working superiorly.
Although Dr. Sutherland on the mechanism of primary respiration - the
craniosacral mechanism - said, we know that the body physiology is an
anatomically-physiological function unit to which this includes the Primary
respiratory mechanism. The craniosacral mechanism is not a separate
area.
To demonstrate this rhythmic, involuntary, portable, two-way structurefunction relationship, we want to think about the following:
CSF: He is constantly producing, and indeed, as we assume, of the
lateral ventricles and in the third and fourth ventricles of the central nervous
system are in choroid photosensitive Plexi. From the fourth ventricle of fl
ows of cerebrospinal fluid around the Subarachnoidalrume to the brain
and the spinal canal down to the sacrum. By Granulationes arachnoidales
in superior sagittal sinus it is reabsorbed into the venous system. He also
follows the perineural channels or servings of cranial and spinal peripheral
nerve and is then absorbed into the lymphatic fluid system, the third
circulation of body physiology. With regard to the circulation, are the
cerebrospinal fluid and thus the physiological Krperfl uids a common
functional unit.
I-141
fill cerebrospinalis with the incoming tide of liquor. In the opposite phase
the ventricle with the ebbing tide are slim. This constant, involuntary,
rhythmic motility of the central nervous system contributes together with the
fl uktuierenden cerebrospinal fluid at and the reciprocal tension membrane
to a good venous drainage of the brain, the pituitary, pineal, and other key
functions.
Notes on palpation: It is difficult to sense the motility of the central
nervous system, and generally not necessary. The expansion of a
compressed portion of a Grohirnhlft e can be palpated during a correction
phase of a membranous joint Trains occasionally.

Reciprocal tension membrane: There are three meningeal layers that


envelop the central nervous system - the pia mater, the arachnoid and the
dura mater. The dura mater was called reciprocal of Dr. Sutherland tension
membrane, since they work as a unit in their relationship with the
craniosacral mechanism.
The dura mater clothes neurocranium as their inner periosteum,
continues through the sutures, unites with the outer layer of the periosteum
in the skull and then passes into the whole, drooping of the skull base
Bindegewebssysteme the body. Within the neurocranium the Dura has
three doublings: the falx, the tentorium and the falx cerebelli. It is important
at this Arrangement that falx and tentorium on sinus encountered en to form
a fulcrum, the falx and the two halves of the tentorium are three moving
sickles. This compound is called Sutherland fulcrum.
The three crescents - falx, right and left cerebellar Tentrorium - with its
front, rear, side and bottom Anhaft ments in the bony elements of the skull
and sacrum Os act as a reciprocal tension membrane. It is no less than a
reciprocal Spannungsmebran, there are no membranes. It is a function
unit.
Accordingly, the reciprocal tension membrane moves in the expansion
phase in an anterior-superior direction, with the skull base is expanding in
the frontal plane of the head. In the expansion phase, it moves in a direction
posteriorinferiore, with the skull base narrowed in the frontal plane. The
Sutherland fulcrum is the fulcrum, work on or by the three crescents
physiologically, when the balance in the cranial membranous Gelenkme-

I-143
Fulcrum and the reciprocal tension membrane controlled. The relative
mobility of the sphenoid infl uenced the frontal (or both Ossa frontalia) and
the bones of the face, and the occipital bone infl uenced the temporal
bones, the parietal bones and the mandible.
The membranous articulation patterns in craniosacral mechanism are
described in terms of their relationship to the SSB. They include torsion
(left or right), Sidebending rotation (right or left) and compression. In
addition, there is in connection with the mutual relations of the individual
sutures specifi c membranous joint Trains, eg a strain of occipitomastoid
suture, so the relationship between frontal and sphenoid or frontal and
parietal, or a strain on Angulus mastoideus the parietal -. And more so many
more as there are articulated connections.
The basic, described in reference to the SSB pattern, ie, for. Example, a
Torsion, are reflected in all parts of bone and connective tissue throughout
the body physiology. The same is true for some heavy specifi c
membranous joint Trains such. As a dysfunction of occipitomastoid suture.
Notes on palpation: The bony elements are located on the surface face
of the craniosacral mechanism and are more accessible for tactile evaluate.
However, it is important to understand that they are part of a membranous
hinge mechanism. And the art of diagnosis is to palpate the mobile
operation of these bony elements in health and dysfunction. The bones
were, taken from a moving mechanism for the ride.
Sacrum: The sacrum plays an important role in the mobility of the body
physiology, because it has a complicated overriding pattern for arbitrary or
postural pelvic movement and a constant, rhythmic, involuntary flexionextension-mobility as part of the craniosacral mechanism. The sacrum
forms the lower pole of the reciprocal tension membrane and part of the
Sutherland fulcrum and the three lever arms or sickles. Blocked by trauma
in his involuntary mobility, the sacrum can restrict the movement of the
entire reciprocal tension membrane and the connective tissue of the body.
Such a restriction may contribute to many problems throughout the body
physiology. A loss of involuntary mobility of the sacrum is not necessarily
lead to a loss of an arbitrary or attitude mobility of the sacrum, and the loss
of involuntary movement is often overlooked.
I-145
Rotational patterns of SSB, the prodromal symptoms begin on the side
where the greater wing of the sphenoid bone and the os are occipitale high.
The
Presence of this pattern is not the cause of the migraine, but useful to
secure the diagnosis.
High Blood Pressure: A hufi ger palpatory findings in chronic high blood
pressure is a Abfl attening the tentorium what its anatomical function
impaired. In the extension it is not as steep as it should at its rhythmic
movement.

Dyslexia: In many of these cases there is a intraossales pattern of the


temporal bone.
Trigeminal neuralgia: hufi g associated with dental caused traumatic
Strainmustern.
Hormonal disorders: A limitation of the motility of the hypothalamus
Pituitary axis may lead to under- or over-activity of the hormonal function
and may be related to a vertical or lateral membranous joint Train the SSB.
Concussion: Here mediates the reciprocal tension membrane feel a
shock-like rigidity in its functioning.
Meningitis, postmeningitischer Condition: The reciprocal tension
membrane alters its tone and function quality. In the acute stage it feels
like a wet paper towel, in chronic postmeningitischen state as sodden
cardboard. And in each of the two states is a central nervous system
subject end chronic venous congestion detected.
Pattern of SSB: Reinforced trauma can decompensate existing patterns
and affect craniosacral and other body mechanisms.
Specifi c membranous joint Trains: You can, whether acute or chronic,

The 12 cranial nerves: Each of them may be limited in its function
relationship. Associated problems can facial runs Reten, with symptoms of
eyes, ears, nose, throat, or neurocranium and the skull base and trigger a
vagal syndrome, or down to the sacrum and impair its parasympathetic eff

of damage caused by a compression of parietal trauma that his calcarine
sulcus pressed the occipital lobe of the central nervous system and in the
area of the sinus tectus against the falx. The compression of the parietal
bone and the consequent loss of membranous and articular mobility, was
found by palpation.

work and allow them their basic function patterns within the craniosacral
mechanism and - to show for the whole body physiology - the connective
tissue and the liquid matrix of the body. Zuknft owned health and
dysfunction pattern of an individual, the clinician better understand when he
has a record of lifelong palpation basic involuntary mobility of the subject
patient.
Overall, there is therefore ranging from headache to treat the newborn a
lot of medical problems that can be diagnosed and treated with the help of
trained Palpationskunst. In many cases, the palpatory tools are even the
only way to achieve results. In addition, there is also a medical fact that
ligamentous joint dysfunctions, fascial train down and other related trauma
or disease problems, various functional areas of the primary respiratory
mechanism can affect. Conversely, can have a negative eff ect on the rest
of the body problems in craniosacral mechanism. One can conclude that
the body physiology is a functional unit, regardless of whether. In health,
traumatic conditions and / or disease With palpatorischem skill you can

throughout the entire body - from head to toe, and vice versa - track healthy
functioning mutual relations, as well as medical problems.
Diagnostic palpation as Kunstf ertigkeit and Science
When palpating the primary respiratory mechanism and the body
physiology
Not to separate the diagnosis and treatment of each other. Palpation is
both a
Artistry and science. From the science point of view to them represents a
quantum leap in the sensory perception. Once the practitioner places his
hands on a patient in order to diagnose and treat palpation, he takes with
him participate in this quantum experience. It is completely impossible for
him to be a neutral or independent observer, while he works with the living
tissues of the patient.
The practitioner is an involuntary primary respiratory mechanism within
a living body physiology arbitrary. His patient has the same qualities: an
involuntary primary respiratory mechanism in a living body physiology
arbitrary. And with the help of palpation I-149
Activity mediated. This requires a Beteiligtsein at this from the inside, from
the
Patient out-working units and also enough time to allow the tissues
enbaren its operation to off. While the clinician palpates with his
proprioceptive sensory input, he must wait a few moments or even minutes
until the awakened Primary respiratory mechanism and the mechanisms of
body physiology begin to work. These mechanisms include all cells, fluids,
tissue and their tidenartige movement, mobility and motility.
If the palpated area healthy, he will inform the clinician that fact by
appropriate tone quality of the randomly moving tissue as well as the quality
of the involuntary mobility of the basic rhythm, where the primary respiratory
mechanism during flexion / external rotation, extension / internal rotation of
mittellinigen and bilateral structures follows. Prevails, however, in areas
palpated dysfunction, which is the handler by the changed tone quality of
the randomly moving tissue and by limiting or non-Stattfi ends of
tidenartigen basic movement of the primary respiratory mechanism
reported. The practitioner should be possible from the body physiology of
the patient these findings before he analyzed. Function, so living tissues
make as visible, when it has completed its work, be better understood than
if it is still working. If you have initiated a corrective treatment to return the
function towards health, it is advisable to investigate the dysfunction area,
to feel how the rhythm of the primary respiratory mechanism tidenartige
makes its way through the corrected spot again. The presence of Tide
ensures that a further inherent self-healing mechanisms of the patient
through the living friend stattfi. Is the Tide not available or only to a reduced
extent, this indicates a slowing local healing function.

Palpation is something that you have to teach yourself. So is the


Palpationskunst part palpatory skills. If the therapist using objective,
passive movement tests, he learns based palpatory techniques to feel the
quality of its own motion and that of the patient. He uses as a participant
the involuntary mechanisms and the body physiology of the patient, then he
learns with the help of his proprioceptive nerves and the sensory-motor
areas of his central nervous system, the quality of motion, mobility and
motility of the inside, out of the patient, to read , In order from the primary

Develop Palpationsfhigkeiten
Revised version of a lecture held in 1986 in a basic course of the
Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
When I was a student in an osteopathic college in the 1930s, we were
blessed with teachers who practice the art of patient care by means of
various manipulation arts gave us, mainly High Velocity Th rusting (HVT).
What we learned at school, was eff ective; and when I graduated, I was
able to perform a good osteopathic treatment. I had many patients and had
them while trying to solve their problems, give many treatments. After I had
spent eight to ten years with this kind of general medicine, it started to bore
me that these patients always came back with the same problems in the
same areas - problems that the last time when they were actually already
there, would to be rigged. Out of ten cases of a particular problem type it
was three or four within a reasonable period of time better, another three or
four it was sometime better and remaining showed no positive reaction, no
matter what I did. What frustrated me was the fact that I could not erentiate
to diff with my Palpationsfhigkeit why one person responded positively and
the other not. I finally realized that you can have a wide range of
Palpationsfhigkeiten that does not really help one - and off Obviously was
the case with me.
So I decided to re-read the writing s of AT Still, were in literally the
practice of "Osteopathy" and decided instead to study the practice of AT
Still. After some time I realized that I,
if I wanted to understand his expressed particularly in a certain Absatz26
concept as a development goal and use, give away all my so-called
palpation skills and something had to learn new things. This I started by
just my hands together in different, with the symptoms

taken are lousy? Do you feel anything? Do you feel really, what's going
on? You know really what's going on? We need to develop our sense of
touch, by training the sensory area of the brain, that was never exposed to
this type of sensing previously. We take an orange and an apple in his
hand and feel that the fruit has an uneven surface che and the other a
relatively smooth - great! But how are things now with the fine motilities
and mobilities that stattfnden here in this body that we feel? We need to
develop palpation tools that match the complexity and simplicity of this
primary respiratory mechanism. We must learn to feel. But this does not
happen by teaching. I can teach you anything about it - you have it even
on a

listened from my heart out, I learned from her inside, how to work with the
body physiology. I do not even now all I have to actually know, I'm still
learning.
Five years after I started with this new way of working, I moved from
Michigan to Texas. When it was so far over three hundred people came to
me and said, "We like what you're doing. Where can we get further treat
us in this way? "You can believe it or not, but that was the first time in five
years, had in those working in this way, that people said he liked them.
Before that date, not a single person had told me that it was a good
approach. I only reason that the approach was good because he knew

Interestingly enough, was the fact that I felt nothing in those first years,
not determinative of the effi ciency of treatment. I could not feel anything
from what I feel today, but I worked with a body physiology in patients who
knew that something was happening. You did something for these patients
- not because I feel it, or give her instructions or could tell her: "Be quiet,"
or they could do anything else, but simply because I took over the job, the
range in the patient to get hold of the bit had to say. It was about my hands
to position and then quietly listening using my hands to read with the help
of my hands, to feel quietly what the patient was trying to tell me. It was not
the ego of the patient or his intellect, but the rest of his tissue function, which
rewarded me report that the emergency

changes in the direction of health.
The body physiology works exclusively in this way, and that's the only
reason we talk about the development of appropriate Pali 155

ligaments and muscles, and all this moves. In surface chlichem Contact
you feel any movement - everything you do is, gripping the body. But if you

use the proprioceptors, are you listening to a mechanical way of function


that takes place in this particular area.
Useful to the operation of this proprioceptive contact there is a fulcrum
for creating s. Lay down your forearms comfortably on the treatment table
and you based on your elbow then gently. This leads to a slight
compression. If ye too heavily on the elbow, then you blocked that which
tries to feel her. Your prevented then that something is happening. One
method, the correct pressure to fi nd is, initially hineinzulehnen too strong
and then the pressure gradually partially abandon. Take away the pressure
of the poor, but moved his hands not - and suddenly you realize that
something is happening. At this point you are not too tight on the treatment
table fi xed nor her hangs freely - you have a floating contact. This contact
will be everything that happens in patients, refl ected what you noted
because your proprioceptors are now exactly in line. With the voltage in the
part of the mechanism of the patient, which you touched
This idea of being with the voltage in accordance, is particularly evident
in a patient who has an extremely tense, fi brotischen and dysfunctional
lumbar. If such a case comes to you in practice, puts a hand under the
psoas muscle, creates a contact or Fulkrumpunkt and supports you then
firmly on your elbow. You will probably find that you have very strong push
against the treatment table, finally matches against this Fulkrumpunkt until
your pressure with the tension in this psoas. If you then wegnehmt some
pressure, you come to the point
where this muscle begins to work. This is an example of how to apply
through proprioceptive contact compression and can be controlled so that
it coincides with the noticeable in the body pathology. This brings the whole
thing to work.

If you begin to examine the problem of a patient, still thinking about what
is happening here, and understand that you have this mechanism to play
the role of a practitioner when reading. You use your surface chlichen

Interpret spirit, read with the spirit. Developed a "mental picture" of what,
when and why the physiological mechanism of the patient wants this kind
of movement.
What the practitioner should do to palpation of the mechanism:

Feel with sensorimotor input.
Read with sensorimotor input.
Listen with sensorimotor input.
The Wasserlufer28 allow you to be quiet, as it moves with the
mechanism.

And another note for Th ema listening: If you listen to the body physiology
of the patient, Be aware of how much is happening in the anatomicphysiologic overall structure of the patient's body - compared to the little
that is happening, if the therapist is not listening. The deeper enters the
practitioner in himself to listen through his palpatory contact through the
activity in the body physiology of the patient, the more information is shown
to him during his investigation.
Listen to this process on, think about and give yourselves completely to
what comes from the anatomical-physiological totality of the patient. Let
that it is stored as sensory input for you as a practitioner who receives this
input and accepts, without judging its contents. This allows the anatomicphysiological mechanism of the patient "the inherent physiological function
to allow, enbaren their own, infallible Potency to off, rather than blind force
applied from the outside." 29 The practitioner agrees that the body
physiology of the patient uses it.

of the Academy s. For the full text of the reader is referred to the original
sources. The title en the parts I-III has chosen the publisher, the title of Part
IV comes from Dr. Becker.
The terminology of diagnostic touch, including the names biodynamic and biokinetic
energy, was later abandoned by Dr. Becker again. In a letter that was sent to Anne
Wales, DO 1969, he explained his decision in this respect the fact that this terminology
was encountered to low acceptance and in his view, practicing physicians in their attempt
to get the reaction of the concepts, rather hinders. He repeatedly remarked Dr. Wales
over that he, although the material is consistent in his opinion, consider it better to use a
more familiar terminology when talking about> Stills and Sutherland's basic principles of
anatomy and physiology and the clinical for their application required palpatory art

function
Diagnosis is both art and science. In the field of science, we have
expanded our senses through devices: There are now a variety
Tests that can diagnose diseases in the human body.
The diversity and complexity of such tests and the parameters to which
they refer, are endless. Diagnostics as a science gives the practitioner
information that can be detected objectively, which reduces human error to
a minimum.

holds himself to his problem; then the concept of the practitioner of what
constitutes in his opinion the patient's problem, and finally what the
anatomical-physiological totality of the patient's body knows about this
problem. The opinion of the patient about what is going wrong may, on the
based of what other doctors have already said about his condition. If you
can think of an image that tells him his problem satisfactorily, it can
cooperate with you. Ultimately, however, he still has his opinion, right or
wrong.
The Auff assung the doctor of what is wrong with the patient, based on
years of education. It taught him, diagnostic drawers to be created en
expressed by a terminology with which he can communicate his findings.

So, for example, transmits the diagnosis of stomach ulcers, a viral-induced


pneumonia or a whiplash injury each a whole syndrome of findings in the
head of the patient or other doctors. Like this way to communicate also be
necessary, yet it is a limiting factor for diagnosing true.
The body thinks about his problem not limited to such a manner.
And then there's the third factor: the knowledge of the anatomicphysiological mechanism to his own case. He has the answer. The
anatomically physiological mechanism and its unity of structure and
function contribute to the complete picture of the disease and the restored
health.
In summary, one can say: The patient provides regarding a diagnosis of
suspicions, the practitioner provides science Lich based on assumptions,
the patient's body, however, knows the problem and puts it in its tissues.
One can achieve a more accurate result in diagnosing, one that is closer to
the true pattern, if you to use the information and the expertise of the
patient's body. We can use our senses, especially touch umseren train, so
that they lead us in the unity of structure and function of anatomical and
physiological mechanisms of the patient and cause them to give us the
necessary information. The exact way in which
Structure-function in and through them has any handler that these
Would tread path, herausfi ends for themselves. It's just something that
you teach yourself. Manual is possible but ultimately the therapist must
decide which methods bring him results alone. We must learn the message
s, sent to us by the structure-function unit from the patient's body to feel. What happens now? When fi ng on there? And how does it go on? This
is really a challenge.

to develop of potency. The diagnostic tool with which we learn to read
these potency and understand is the use of Fulkrums. We
will use the principle of Fulkrums, by leveraging our hands and fingers so
that we created an environment s, in which the principle of potency is
useable detectable for us and for diagnosis and treatment.
The dictionary-defi nition of "potency" is "the state or quality of being
strong, or the extent of this power; Force; . Strength "and" potent "is defi
ned as" be able to control and exert infl uence; Have authority or power.
"For years we have heard that the body has all the factors by which he can
get healthy or heal in the event of trauma or disease. This statement is
basically true. The body has the ability to express by means of these
inherent potency health, and he is capable of compensatory mechanisms
in response to trauma or
Maintain disease using different Potencys. In the very center perfect health
in the human body resides a potency that manifests him in health. Also
lives in the very center of any traumatic or disease-related condition in the
human body a potency that manifests their reciprocal relationship with the
body in trauma or disease.
It is up to us to learn, to feel this potency. It is relatively easy to feel the
tension and stress patterns of trauma and disease; but within this be off
enbarenden elements there is a potency that is capable to control and exert
infl uence because it has authority or power. They centered the disorder.
This can be felt and read by means of sentient contact.
To get a clearer idea of what it means to feel the potency within a specific
problem, we take as an example a natural phenomenon that demonstrates
the strength in the potency - a hurricane. It can be shown that the principles
and manifestations of a hurricane similar to the principles and
manifestations of disease and traumas in the human body.
I have the potency considered a Fulkrumpunkt that around and through
which the human physiology inherent biodynamic Krft e their work in
health do as well as inherent biodynamic Krft e maintained for the order
by him or her illnesses traumatized states in the body. This potency is
similar to the power or the energy field in Fulkrumpunkt a moving seesaw
or the eye of a hurricane. For
Example is in large, mature en hurricanes kinetic energy produi-169
while I learned to read the structure function in the patients who came to
me with their problems. I became aware of this field of silence, which forms
the center of each trauma or any disease. Slowly, over a long
Time out, the knowledge and understanding developed, why it exists and
what is its role in the trauma or disease process.
Would have had any change in the eye of Carla occurred before she met
on the Texas coast, then have also the entire pattern of their spirals,
changed the intensity of its winds and other factors in order to adapt to this
change in potency in mind. Likewise, I can observe that whenever any

change in the area of silence in patients stattfi friend, said a completely new
design in the related traumatic or disease patterns or otherwise manifested
in the Potency. And that did not discover about me. It exists out of itself.
It asks only that you recognize its existence and that it takes time to develop
a feel for the touch and perception, with which one can see it. As always,
the problem remains that which is to express in words, and methods to fi
nd that it can become a part of our experience. It's just something that one
learns only from itself.
Fulcrum
In order to develop this sense of touch, you first have the principle of
Fulkrums learn and can then work out a way to use the fulcrum in the
diagnostic approach. The dictionary defi ned fulcrum as "support or support
point on which a lever turns, it moves or lifts something." So it's something
that you can put pressure etc. infl uence. There is a statement by Dr. WG
Sutherland, where he describes the fulcrum in relation to the two en hlft
the tentorium and the falx:
"The fulcrum is that silence, not moving lever connection, through which the three
sickles act on or physiologically in cranial membranous tension mechanism when they
really get the voltage aufr. As with all Fulkren, it can be moved from one point to another,
but there is with respect to its leverage feature silent and motionless. "31

popping up on a moving train. The train is still in action and moves while I
jump up, the unevenness of the ballast bed einschtze and the relative
speed of the train, when he lies in the curve. And then I jump from the train,
while he drives. So it is in treating the patient's problems: I'm getting into a

them again, the mechanisms that go on in their eternal changing patterns.
My kind of touching is deep thinking deep seeing, deep feeling - but limited
or not they blocked the structure-function of tissues that I investigate.
In forming my sense of touch, I can still go one step further. By the Still
Point of Fulkrums and through the depths of my fingers touch, I can develop
a conscious awareness of the potency and structural function in the tissues
of the body of my patient. This perception goes beyond the physical
sensations all around donor compounds the five senses of the practitioner.
In my opinion, it is not what I feel with my finger-touch. Instead, it is what
reports the patient's body with the help of my Fulkrums and my fingers

touch. This means perception. This means listening finger-touch. That


opinion and knowledge of the patient's body, not just information.
I can see the gently s and at the same specific contact my hands and
fingers by the way, how do I create a fulcrum check. Your establishes a
fulcrum to a starting point can be created en from which to work from her
and evaluate the case; and at the same time you have to let it free enough
to make it change in adapting to the changing needs of the studied
mechanisms, but this can leave its lever function at rest. Attempts times to
investigate a hyperactive child, and you will see how much you need a
change-capable fulcrum and a corresponding hand-finger lever, and not
only within the mechanisms of the child, but also for the child himself.
You will also herausfi ends that when increasing the pressure on the
fulcrum automatically the depth of palpatory contact at the end of the lever
- that the hand and fingers - reinforced. Conversely, it is just the case. I
can adjust my touch so that the particular requirements of the kinetic,
energy equivalent to that of the located off enbarenden anatomicallyphysiological Mechai-173

Fulkrumpunkt. The other hand is placed over the liver and elbow or forearm
are so conveniently placed that you can stay in touch longer. Are in the
diseased organ thus is located between the examining hands of the
practitioner. Based on these double-Fulkren the practitioner can now
perceive the stattfi in liver area ndenden changes in the structure function.
He can sense whether the liver is moved or ligament. Around how it works
as it should do it in a healthy state falciforme. And he will feel well if you
know how to also do it in a healthy state, responds to the rhythmic rise and
fall of the diaphragm during inhalation and exhalation. He can now allow
the field of silence, so the potency of this specifi c problem, to focus, and
he will learn over time and in repeated examinations much about these
diseased liver. While the anatomical-physiological unit of the liver is able
again to respond to the respiratory exchange of the diaphragm, begin their
normal movements relative to the ligament. Falciforme, and their venous
and lymphatic drainage are beginning to work to ff NEN and. The
practitioner now knows that this is a case of hepatitis, coming out of the
pathological situation and returns to the normal state. All these changes
are perceived by a clear-sighted touching.
The application possibilities of Fulkrumprinzips are as diverse as the
List of complaints, with whom we have to do it in practice. Each case must
be approached individually and every practitioner and each practitioner
needs to develop his or her own approach. The practitioner should know
as much as possible about anatomy and physiology as well as on the
related to the anatomical and physiological structure units function. If he
continued to develop this kind of touching by the structure-function-patterns
that show their changes under his hands, zoom in using the Fulkrumpunkte
and pass through it feels, the practitioner acquires knowledge that his
understanding deepened. This contact ff net the door and lets him

understand why this patient is suffering from those ailments that he


manifested. Even if laboratory tests bring no clarity about the cause of the
symptoms, the trained touch ability of the practitioner will make this
understanding possible.
Why is it necessary to set up this Fulkrumpunkte? The therapist tries to
feel function in living tissue and the Still Point to fi nd, of the manifested
from a stress pattern his symptoms. For this he needs out of the heart of
his own silence feel in the heart of silence in patients.

The Fulkrumprinzip can be used rust techniques even in theory, to make
their applications more effi cient. Once you have the handle, it is desired to
use in the manipulation employed, paused a brief moment you established
a fulcrum, paused again and can appreciate the thinking, feeling, seeing
fingers, how much leverage and power you need to complete the process ,
You will find that you can use less power needs from the outside and can
control them leverage much more accurate.
Harnessing the inherent Krft e, is not a time consuming process. Since
we use mechanisms that are already in the works, it is only necessary to
enter into contact with them and they let speak for themselves. The patient
comes into practice with a symptom in a specifi c area. It is possible to go
to this area and carry out an investigation, the one giving the information
that you need to explain why he has his difficulties. Of course, this may be
only a small part of the picture of his problem, which is interrelated to much,
but it's a start. From here you can go to other areas and finally put together
an entire Diag nose. Here, the anatomical knowledge of the practitioner
and his physiology knowledge play an important role. He can bring his
knowledge and his sense of touch and the pattern of restriction and
dysfunction trace until the entire diagnosis is clear in his head. Every time
the patient comes back to the understanding of the practitioner will deepen
- until he can use his knowledge to the history of dysfunction and its current
State to understand and is able to make a prediction of possible
development. So always remember that what is already contained in the
issues that we can fi nd use in our patients. We just have to contact and to
work for us.

accompanied post-coronary syndrome? Do you know that in case of lobar
pneumonia temporal is relatively limited mobility of the os on the side of the
consolidated lobe? Do you understand the anatomical and physiological
connection of the tissue, which explains why this statement is true? Can
you using a diagnostic contact locate the aff enes sinus in sinusitis and
determine the extent of the disease?
If you treat a Shoulder bursitis or neuralgia in the arm area, you can feel
when the drainage of these areas will be jammed better during treatment?
In a severe case, this is the moment when you should ren aufh for that day
to deal with, in order to avoid depletion of the diseased tissue. Remember:

Most dysfunctions of the body change in the center of the disturbed area
on a micrometric level of structure and function. Can you feel how the Krft
e can melt away the dysfunction pattern while watching her?
Can you feel the flatness and the loss of vitality, of any so-called
"Nervous breakdown" and all cases of a syndrome accompanied
postencephalitic? Can you feel how increases in such a case, during your
treatment, normal vitality?
Can you with a freshly experienced whiplash determine the direction of
the force of the accident, when you lay your hands on the diagnosed aff
enes tissue? Can you feel fatigue in the tissue, be it throughout the body
of the patient or in specifi c sick or traumatized areas? This is an extremely
important factor in diagnostic and therapeutic considerations: Do I
understand what I feel?
These are just some of the myriad ways in which the upfront diagnostic
touch off. In each area mentioned qualitative, quantitative, prognostic,
diagnostic and therapeutic considerations apply. In this
Field of self-effort, the diagnostic touching, no one is an expert. This lively
body lying on the treatment table in front of you, is the teacher.
He challenges you to discover his problem.
In developing the diagnostic touching there are several steps that can be
summarized as follows: Positioned your hands or your hands on or below
the tissue, which want to investigate her. Established a Fulkrumpunkt for
each hand contact, can of the work from her. Let your hands and palpating
Fulkrumpunkte become one with the tissue to be treated. Let that function
and dysfunction of the tissues by your hands and FulkrumI-179
or a dysfunction there that will teach you the experience that it is
necessary to build a more solid contact to the Fulkrumpunkten, so you can
watch how shows the dysfunction in this area. Experience and the nature
of the problem studied are perfecting your understanding.
Let me clarify what I mean when I say pressure on Fulkrumkontakt and
not on hand contact. When the down expresses an end of a lever which
operates on a fulcrum, automatically lifts the other end of the lever. But
that's not the kind of lever mechanism that I mean, if I by force - speak or
print application to my Fulkrumpunkt. My hand contact is not lifted, in the
patient's body into it. My hand contact is gently but firmly with the patient's
body in contact and I turn proportional to the degree of dysfunction that I
feel in the tissue, pressure or force directly down on my Fulkrumpunkt on.
The hand contact remains gently but firmly in contact with the body
physiology of the patient. So if a man has about a 50-kilogram sack lifted
wrong, I turn to my Fulkrumpunkt probably a significant
Downward pressure on in order to counterbalance this by lifting the 50kilogram
Build weight caused dysfunction. Here my hand but not suppressed with
the same degree of intensity, because that I would block the sense
impressions that one receives from the bioenergy fields in patients who
destroyed.

Try both of times and make your own experiences.


Such a process may require a lot of pressure on Fulkrumpunkt of the
practitioner or very little. In case of dysfunction such as that which was
caused by the lifting of the 50 kilos, the pressure must be at Fulkrumpunkt
as I said be significant to counterbalance the force magnitude to form the
patterns of dysfunction. The hand contacts this might be fixed, but remain
soft enough to allow the problem in the patient to go to work. If the
practitioner has the Krft e compensated in patients with the help of his
Fulkrumpunkte, he gets the maximum response of the dysfunctional tissues
in their efforts to position themselves to diagnose and treat. Interestingly,
results for the patient a degree of exploitation ends well when the e Krft
be aligned in its physiological mechanism by the practitioner. I experience
hufi g that the patient thinks that I practice little or no pressure from although I actually support myself with all my strength to my Fulkrumpunkt
or my Fulkrumpunkte.
The practitioner has to his anatomy and physiology to know to interpreI181
feel how it is done, and be with your anatomical and physiological
knowledge will be able to recognize whether it is a normal physiological
mechanism that works here, or in a state of dysfunction. If you are not sure,
go to the other knee and thigh and tests them. It may be that both are
normal, or normal and the other not. The need herausfi ends her.
Diagnostic touch is therefore essential, because there is something
subtle in the function and dysfunction of tissue that can be explored in any
other way than through craftsmanship, sensitive, knowing perceive using
this kind of touching. For this an interesting case study: A woman comes
into practice and complains of heft owned headaches that it has the past
two years. You take your medical history to make let various studies and
you can then say, under what sort of headaches she suffers. So far so
good. But if you now applies even diagnostic touch, you come across the
consequences of an old concussion at the skull base, which has there
limited mobility, which in turn interferes with venous drainage from her head
and produces an irritation of the intracranial and extracranial tissue through
which pass the nerves that have to deal with the headache of the patient.
You ask the patient whether they eventually had an accident with
concussion or one in which they "saw stars", and they told you about an
accident in her childhood, in which she sat down so hard that she briefly
unconscious and was actually "saw stars" Now you have not only the range
and type of their headaches localized and determined, but also their
etiology found -. both in terms of the original trigger as well as the cause of
the current state of pain. This information would have to get in any other
way than by touching diagnostic - a diagnostic touch that you said that this
was an old, inflicted 40 years ago injury that now manifests as headaches;
a touch that actually feel the dysfunction in these tissues and accurately
tells you which make tissue what if. in function or dysfunction By the same

Kind of touching gets her prognostic information: Which auxiliary options


are available in this case?
Diagnostic touch is therefore essential, because it goes hand in hand
with something that might be called therapeutic touch. Let's go back to the
case just described: It is this woman with medication and physiotherapy
some symptomatic relief procure for s; but if you want to try to solve the
problem in any case, you have to I-183
suppressed. Findings obtained by diagnostic touch come from a much
more subtle, sub-clinical level.
That brings us to an interesting point: If our investigations revealed that
the explanation of the restrictions suffered by these people for months and
years, in fact, problems of physical kind, you really should then designate
such problems as neurotic or psychosomatic?
I do not think so. The hypochondriac, one finds is not a hypochondriac.
My reasons for this feeling based on the fact that someone who is able to
diagnose the responsible for complaints subclinical dysfunction, has also
found the way in which these dysfunctions can be corrected, and thus it
back to a state of normality and re-compensation in the patient comes. A
sensitive, highly trained diagnostic touch can provide the tool with which the
understanding necessary in such cases can open up. For these people it
is a huge help when it turns out that their problems have a physical output
level.
The body is basically made of solid components (bone), semisolid
constituents (connective tissue) and liquids (Krperfl uids). These solidsemisolid-fl uid structure is equipped with living life biodynamic principles.
It is organized and highly capable of expressing lively changes that ends
stattfi in their own environment. An area with a dysfunction can be found in
this living body, because it expresses the dysfunction. What can be felt
when touching diagnostic, are kinetic energies in this area stressed that act
in the body, that solid-semisolid-fl uid mechanism as dysfunctional patterns.
The therapist interpreted this manifestation of kinetic energy in a
physiological and clinical language that is based on anatomical and
physiological knowledge of the bodily functions.
All anatomical-physiological units express kinetic energy and use it to
show in health, disease or traumatized state how they work. Diagnostic
touch is the art of learning how to use this kinetic energy and the Potencys
at their centers. Depending on the current situation in the patient vary

with an electrical engineer, he said, "It takes a lot of energy to bring a

our work, our hands are apparently still on the patient, the movement,
mobility and motility, we feel the patient is, however - depending on the
problem - considerably. In the tissues, there is a planned pattern by which
they go when they show their dysfunction. They work their way through to
a point, seems to stop the every sense of movement or mobility. This is the
Still Point. It's quiet - and yet fully biodynamic force. That is the potency

this time, carries out a change that can not really feel the therapist, but
rather perceives as the feeling that a change has taken place. After that

It's a more normal function pattern, compared with the limitation that existed
at the beginning of the investigation. The extent of the correction, the friend

I have encountered in patients achieve therapeutic success. Needless to
say, that the terminally ill patient, for example, those with cancer, eventually
died. But the results of this treatment brought them in the meantime,
symptomatic relief, and that more relief than with other therapeutic agents
would have been possible.
In other cases, where the potential was available in the direction normal
health for a reversal of the pathological condition, the physiology of the
patient responded with its maximum performance to return to normalcy or
recompensation. A fellow practitioner once told me the following to me:
" If one uses Diagnostic and Therapeutic Touch as you do, disease states through While

with a minimum of complications and long-term consequences. In traumatic conditions is

and also that the potency in Fulkrumbereich is part of that total kinetic

There is a potency in all Fulkren for activities in the functional processes
of the body; and as the world of nature, in this body exists, this function
processes its own power make biodynamic ready. It takes ability, time and
patience to learn how to sensed this function to learn how you can feel the
movement initiated by these living structures in tissues - not voluntary
movement that emanates from the clinician or patient, but that movement,

the already there when this patient quietly lies on the treatment table. It
takes time and patience to learn how to follow the patterns that show up in
this pattern, how the potency is aware in the Fulkrumpunkten and how
during diagnostic or therapeutic study perceives the moment in which a
change in the potency has occurred. Likewise, one learns only gradually
over time, to feel how the pattern develops after it has passed through the
still point, and analyze this material and translate it into clear physiological
ideas. In words taken to developing a diagnostic touching sounds quite
complex, but in the practical implementation, it is a relatively simple matter.
People with no experience in this field are hufi g skeptical. They do not
believe that diagnostic touch can fulfill everything that is ascribed to him on
positives. However, a sense of skepticism is a valuable aid in this work. It
helps one to keep our feet on the ground. The therapist asks a living body
for information. If he absolutely can not believe that it is possible to receive
this information by diagnostic touch, he will get very little information. Only
when he allowed his mind to the possibility to ff nen that you can actually
receive information in this way, and if it means brings just as much
skepticism that the body is challenged to prove himself as an information

Diagnostic Touch Part 3:
Application
Part III of diagnostic Touch , originally from the Academy
of Applied Osteopathy published, has been largely
replaced for this book by material that Dr. Becker had
prepared for a presentation at a meeting of the Academy
s, and contains all 26 photos that Dr . Becker had made
for this lecture - in the original article, there were only ten.
A dentist has two tasks when a patient first comes to him, he must first
diagnose the patient's problems and then offer him professional help for
these problems. Diagnostic touch helps both. The patient and his problem
is a challenge for the practitioner.
When working with diagnostic touching is the patient of teachers. His
problem quasi represents the space where his inherent biodynamic Krft e
and their infallible Potency the students - that is, the practitioner with his
diagnostic touch - teach. When diagnostic touching it comes to learning how
to feel the inherent biodynamic Krft e and understands and how the hidden
in them, infallible Potency is aware. I ask the biodynamic and biokinetic
Krft e of patients and their Potencys to tell me their findings through my
Fulkrumpunkte. And they do, without ever being wrong. If an error occurs,
then this is due to my inability this Krft e and Potencys perceive correctly
and to interpret.
I've learned that this force are fields in the patient always in action. The
coated fabric of its connective tissue elements and the fl uid contents

automatically move with it, while the bioenergy patterns unfold in its
functioning. I have to go as it were out of the way and follow the bioenergy
patterns. One can compare this role at a concert with an accompanying
musician. A good sideman follows the singer for whom he plays and lets
them take the lead. If the practitioner chooses to approach via fulcrum and
pressure, it stimulates its fulcrum-pressure points on the bioenergy factors
in patients and can then take from the pattern in the patient through its
activity cycle.

pensions biokinetic Krft s in the body physiology, over, around and through
the manifest this activity pattern. It is comparable to the force at the point
which serves as a fulcrum for a balance board or with the eye of a hurricane.
A fulcrum has energy and strength. The practitioner noticed this pause rest
time and their potency when he studied these patterns through its
diagnostic touch.
Once the clinician has positioned his hand contacts and established a
Fulkrumpunkt for each of them, he initiated by applying pressure or force to
his Fulkrumpunkt an activity in the inherent biodynamic
Krft s and the inherent biokinetic Krft s in patients. He can then ability to
sense how the tissue elements and these energies go through on a
micrometric level three distinct phases of activity over its Fulkrumpunkte:
1.
It feels as if these energy fields and fabric elements working
towards the balance point for this pattern within their pattern.
2.
A silent pause resting phase, the potency is achieved and all
movement seems to stop. Until then, the practitioner can follow these
changes with the help of his hand contacts and Fulkrumpunkte and
so the problems of
Better understand patients. If the pattern through the silence goes, fi nd
a change in the potency instead. "Something happened," because of this
change in potency. This is the correction phase in the course of
treatment.
3.
In the fields of energy and tissue elements motion is felt again.
The pattern that is unfolding now, manifests itself as a more normal
functional models for the disturbed area.
These three phases can in one minute, go through their cycle within a
short time, for. Example, but it may also be that it takes several minutes,
depending on the extent and intensity of pathological physiology, at issue
here.
Phase 2, the physiological break Serenity moment, is the goal that the
practitioner wants to achieve through diagnostic touch. Pressure on fulcrum
of the practitioner uses the power in the potency, the break-rest phase the
body physiology. The physiological energy fields donate the moving force

for both the diagnostic information that deepens the insight of the
practitioner, as well as for the therapeutic benefit of the patient.
As a practitioner who uses diagnostic touch, I have directed my attention
to the potency in this patient because I know that when a change in this
potency friend stattfi, a completely new, Richi-193

The bioenergy field of welfare exploitation ends or health
The bioenergy well ndens fishing is the most powerful force in the world. It
is dynamic. It is rhythmic. It is a force field that begins with the moment of
conception and continues until the last moment of death.
The body is an independent mechanism provided with the ability to
homeostasis, which serves for the stabilization of its internal environment.
So he can maintain his health and treat disease, trauma and stressful
situations. All he needs to fulfill his life-sustaining basic needs, he relates
from his external environment. Physically, mentally and emotionally, he is
in constant contact with the external environment, ranging from his
immediate environment to the farthest universe. Why then separate internal
and external environment? Instead of the term e to use "man" and
"separated his environment," they can also be summed up in one word:
biosphere.
The bioenergy field of health is a tangible experience. It is possible to feel
exactly how the bioenergy of Health is working in our patients. It is a quiet,
rhythmic sensations all around ends of a complete exchange between the
patient's body and the rest of his biosphere. In a healthy state fi complete
replacement rather than a friend without any area restriction, stress, trauma
or stress.
Everyone has his own bio-energy field of self-well-being, which
constantly changes from the cradle to the grave. Every man, every woman,
every child has his or her individual pattern. When a young woman who
suffers from an intestinal inflammation for years, another health pattern is
determined normal than an athlete of her age. If the practitioner can feel in
a patient that this and its biosphere are in harmonious exchange, he can
dismiss him with the certainty that he is healthy again.
Power factors in the body physiology
To create a trauma in the body physiology, force is required from the
outside, and some of that force remains as a part of any traumatic
experience. Some of these adventitious force factors that I would call
biokinetic energy, the body absorbs. This force is a part of physiology in I213
go with them. their own inherent energy, together with the bioenergy
throughout the body physiology of the patient benefits Your pattern of
activity gives me the diagnostic information that I interpreted to the effect
that the patient has a rotational compression dysfunction in the area of the

fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae and that s on both sides there is
considerable muscle spasm in the psoas. The pattern continues to show
me by it reaches its focus, comes at a still point, go through a point where
"something happens" and finally hineinentfaltet in a corrective, normalizing
change of all structures involved in the Potency. The total time for the
treatment varies between five and fifteen minutes. The patient leaves the
treatment bench very relieved and if its tissues were not damaged too,
will return with him within the next few hours or days everything back to
normal.
According to the patients I have not done much. In the three-phase cycle
of the process he may have sensed changes in themselves or not. Even an
outside observer would probably say that I have not done much, because
he sees neither me nor the patient in motion. Had he but put his hand
between my elbow and my fulcrum-point pressure on the knee, it would be
a different story. I have applied enough pressure to create a counterweight
to the 40-kilo bag, enough pressure to compensate those biokinetic force
that had been added to the body physiology of the patient to produce the
described patterns of dysfunction. When I met this force in patients who
bioenergy factors began in him, at its maximum effi work zienzlevel to
factors return the biokinetic force back to its biosphere. What remained was
the pattern of bioenergetic good fishing ndens this patient. Sometimes I am
so strongly leaning on my fulcrum-pressure points that I got bruises. The
patient does not feel this, because by I build a counterweight to the Krft s
in it, I have his sense of the factors that make its dysfunction patterns
canceled. He feels only the relief that is formed when the energy to which it
is going to be compensated. So it's much more than simply a "laying on of
hands." It is in every patient and every time you use it, a knowledge of body
physiology, bio-energy and the biokinetic energy and a
Science royal applying many factors.
Deep-seated, chronic problems respond equally well to the use of
Bioenergy as a driving force. The correction and the results that you get,

and brain areas that supply this part of the body. If the injury is severe and
long lasting, this message en be imprinted in the nervous system, similar to
the recording messages on a tape recorder. Although the local injury heals,
the nervous system can not necessarily go of his memory. It tends to
remember the disturbing message, and will remain long after the accident
a facilitierter dysfunction area.
For a man whose left very badly injured leg had taken months to heal, the
lumbar region of the spinal cord appeared in a state
to be of shock. The bioenergy field in this area felt abnormal. Even as his
leg was already healed, the man always felt his legs as very cold. As the
lumbar region with the aid of corrective treatment restored his normal
bioenergy factor of health, this feeling disappeared. Such a situation I
observed also in two other cases: In one case, the patient had a completely

cold lower back. He developed a bilateral dysfunction pattern of the psoas


muscle, which was resistant to therapy until the lumbar spinal area was
returned to its normal pattern bioenergy. Otherwise, the toxic effects of a
series of rabies vaccinations in the M. rectus abdominal had affected the
spinal origin of its nerve supply. It is worthwhile to think about the treatment
program to the segmental origin of any traumatic condition. Each of the
techniques that work with the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid can be
used to exert infl uence on the central nervous system. All normalizing, and
delete old-coined Embassy s from disturbed areas.
As the site of a spinal cord segment feels when it is marked by nerve
impulses from a disturbed area? One can only herausfi ends, by examining
a person who has suffered a serious injury in the past. Go to the segmental
area of the spinal cord, which supplies this part, puts a hand over, one hand
under this area - that is, with posterior and anterior Contact - established
Fulkrumpunkte, applies pressure to the Fulkrumpunkten and feel the
change in the bioenergy fields in the investigated area. Comparing with your
treatment program, with each new visit as normal. The Tonusqualitt the
tissue in the traumatized area is compared with adjacent normal areas,
have a significant change. If one has the felt and once understood, it
becomes easier to feel for each new case that.

Stress factors in trauma
The general adaptation syndrome, as Dr. Hans Selye, known as the "father
of stress research", it describes accompanies each traumatic Erfahrung35.
" Stress manifests itself as a specifi cal syndrome, but unspezifi sch caused
, "says Selye. Trauma as a stressor brings the general mechanism of the
adaptation syndrome to react. Trauma stimulates the pituitary gland, which
then stimulates the adrenal glands. These in turn offer the stomach, and
the Endothelsysteme
white blood cells respond. Selye stated that the whole development of this
reaction depends largely on conditioning factors. The skill
Be variables which act from within us - for example, inherited
predispositions and previous experience (conditioning from the inside) -, or
those with the cause externally influenced food our bodies simultaneously
Ussen (conditioning from the outside). These are all integral elements of
the stress response. They all contribute to the image of something in
general adaptation syndrome.
Selye also mentions tissue memories, as well as AD Speransky:
"The permanent body changes (in the structure or the chemical composition),
underlying the eff ective adaptation or their collapse, are consequences of stress. They
represent tissue memories that Ussen infl our future somatic behavior in similar stressful
situations. They can be saved. " 36

In order to explain what is happening in the body physiology and its


biosphere, it was necessary for Selye, the basic concept of a functional unit
of life - the reaction - to develop. It is a functional unit of energy in the body
physiology and classifi ible as one of the many forms of bioenergy,
expressed by physiological functional processes. Selye defi ned reaction
as " the smallest biological target that can still selectively react to
stimulation. "
A trauma is clearly a stressor; and we can discuss another phase of
Selyes concept that refers to an area that us even more interested as
clinicians: Selye speaks of "conditioning" by chemicals

Stress also affects the bioenergy factors in the body function; and
regardless of whether they are called bioenergy or reactions: The

with the trauma caused stress pattern. Each treatment and each case is

adds. The traumatic condition may be improved in an appropriate manner,
but the patient still feels comfortable. And what his total recovery is
delaying, in my view, is undoubtedly the stress syndrome. To restore its
bioenergy well fishing ndens, this factor must be eliminated. These stressenergy can return to the biosphere or wherever they go. Then the bioenergy
of Health remains the only functioning force. Since the Cranial concept also
includes the primary mechanisms that restore mobility and motility of the
pituitary gland and the hypothalamus, I will make sure me that normalize
the bioenergy fields in this area in all traumatic cases. I also check the
segment areas of the thyroid and adrenal glands, the spinal segments of
the traumatized areas and all other regions that have to do with the general
adaptation syndrome. My feeling is that this biokinetic areas of stress
syndrome are part of the whole traumatic pattern and therefore I close with
a traumatic event in my
Total care with a. This contributes to a faster recovery of the entire problem.
A formula of bioenergy

To summarize the discussion so far, you can have any number of


Present equations to test the reaction of a body physiology to trauma and
stress and the effort of the body, this power-added factors
to distribute back to the biosphere, to explain.
To illustrate the equations, a few Defi nition are required.
In previous speeches I called bioenergy well fishing ndens and CFI-221
Fulkrumpunkte compression applied, while his hands are below or on the
area where the patient has symptoms. This compression of his
Fulkrumpunkten stimulates the biodynamic and biokinetic energy and
potency in patients to work; Now go through the three-phase treatment
cycle. Thus, it is now necessary, by the equation F (for fulcrum) and C (for
Supplement compression) to denote the role of the practitioner in this
diagnostic and treatment program.
Equation 6, in the FC represents the Fulkrumkompressionspunkt the
practitioner is: DK + FC Potency EC (-K) = D. It represents a case where
the patient fully recovered in a single treatment session, while Equation 7:
DK + FC Potency EC (-K) = Dk or Equation 8: Dk + FC
Potency EC (-k) = Dk-n show the case which requires many treatments to
gradually K dispense -Factors in the biosphere. If this type of case

normality fi nd is that expressed by Equation 9: Dk n + FC Potency EC (kn) = D. Now the patient is back to its basic
Patterns of health. D = 1 is back. The practitioner feels that with the help of
his hand contacts and Fulkrumpunkte and he may dismiss these patients
safe in the knowledge that he is healthy.
Equations 1 to 5 represent the body physiology of the patient, which
operates within its own mechanisms to eliminate their interference.
Equations 6 to 9 put the role of the practitioner is, the enhanced bioenergy
factors of body physiology and support so that a more complete solution to
the traumatic and stressful experiences can ends stattfi.
The answer to the question why and how all this works, is a qualifi ed: " I
do not know. "I say qualifi ed because I have in this respect ideas that make
me happy when I think of traumatic and stress-related problems plagued
patient care. The bioenergy factors in the patient gave me instructions that
allow me to track the progress in any case until I can feel how the bioenergy
of Health in each patient spreads again. I can follow the process in any
case, the way to normality - or to the point where I know the case can not
continue to improve and certain traumatic and stress-related factors will
remain a part of the body physiology of that patient.
With regard to the fact that we use this bioenergy factors without so
comprehensively to understand how we wish us in treating our patients

Chapter 6-1
Philosophy and methods of treating
Revised version of a lecture delivered in 1983 during a basic course of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching
Foundation in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
This lecture on treatment philosophy and treatment methods is only a summary and a reminder of
what you have already learned during this course. In the first few days of the course you have been
working to feel and function to make a diagnosis. But in reality, you've already dealt with all the time.
Diagnosis and treatment are in fact inseparable.
It is very difficult to express in words health. Health is a word of unknown meaning. For us health
is simply health. We have no Defi nition for it. We can not prove that we are healthy; we can not prove
that we feel health. Yet health in the broadest sense, health is very important, a little. It is the reason
that we're all here - I do not mean here in this classroom event, but here on Earth. We are here because
we own health. As clinicians, we want to recognize and learn this quality of health in the living body
physiology of our patients. We use our palpatory skills to read these vibrant body physiology and can
thereby, that the body of the patient physiology us their patterns of health as well as their shows arisen
due to illness or stress patterns.
Therefore, diagnosis and treatment are inextricably linked.
If one learns the science of osteopathy, you get no specifi c instructions. It is a way of experiencing,
a way of developing. I am advised when developing my principles of osteopathy for my operation in
any impasse that you can imagine. I fought back me on the main road, only to determine that I was
stuck in a dead end again many times. I've done all known errors that you can do only - and until I'm
finished, I'll probably do more. Even Dr. Sutherland learned until the last week of his life more than
the science of osteopathy and developed better ways to adapt to it. It is an entertaining journey.

can help his recovery. Then you have to look at if you studied a patient again. The Tide feels better?
If so, then it is good; but
when the patient returns in six months and you have the feeling that the tide is again limited, this is an
indication that you probably should evaluate your view new that you release more a bit, a listen little
harder, learn a bit more and again shall work for these patients.
We are talking about treatment principles. I'm not trying to teach you something - no one can teach
this kind of work, you can only learn themselves. Dr. Irvin Korr, one of our famous physiologist, said
several years ago at a conference that it was impossible to convey palpation skills, because only one
person can put your finger on one spot. This is
really true. Palpation is something that needs everyone teach yourself. One can teach the ideas and
basic principles, and mention some of the things that you as a clinician might good cheer - but
herauszufi ends how you translate it in your body physiology, and how do you use it in order to
understand the body physiology of the patient, which is then your business.
Search Health
I want to say something about the philosophy of treatment that I have learned in the last few years.
When a patient comes into practice, he would have corrected this left sacroiliac joint, so it aufh rt to
hurt him. He wants something is done for this sciatica or that those rib is treated so that it no longer
bothers him. That's fine. My idea, if a patient comes into practice with a specific problem is, however,
elicit the health pattern of this dysfunction pattern. I do not want to limit itself to diagnose the problem
and to try to treat the anatomic-physiological process, based on the ISG problem or sciatica.

As an example, I want to tell you about one of my patients. (This is not a


Hero story - I do not know. In the 49 years that I'm working, I've never been a hero - the patient is
the hero). This man was so cast down through a skylight from seven meters. His leg was broken in
several places
- The tibia had pushed right into the femur. As a result, he had the
Problem that his legs were ice-cold 24 hours a day. Even if the temperature

I-229
Chronic pattern and closed circles
Of course, not simply melt away every problem. The physiology of
Tissue that works with old scar tissue - scar tissue that has been around for twenty years - is not just
wake up and be healthy; you have to train back to health those tissues, so to speak. Chronically injured
tissue must be trained. Chronic disorders have a tendency to form a closed circuit. My experience with
a certain unwinding technique that had showed me was that the patient felt better after all the movement
- the treatment was as it were oil in the whole thing into it. But when the patient returned the next
week, he had the same dysfunction, in the same place all the same. A closed circle - once initiated, it
was endless. It was constantly in a circle. The body had formed a neuromuscular biofeedback closed
circle in the truest sense of the word.
Such a situation means that one has to pass through this feel dysfunction pattern. One wonders:
What does health from this field? And if one has approached to said dysfunction pattern must be a
In drill hole so that it dissolves; it needs to do something other than just staying in a closed circuit.
Then you can begin to achieve a correction of this problem. Was it for years since, only the belts must
be soft, voltages in the musculoskeletal system have to change, the autonomic systems must adorn their
function modifi, the lymphatic system has to wake up and find that there is something to do, and the
breath of life must in hineinfl ow literally in these tissues, and as strong as the rest of
Body. Many things have to change, and they will do slowly.
You can feel how this thing gradually - no, not moved eyelet for a correction, but as it were, on a selfself-ed and how the health pattern the prevailing pattern.
Identify pathologies
Another similar idea: If you learn hindurchzuspren to the pathologies in living tissues, they are not
like a book based on headlines identifi ible. You feel the function of the body physiology as it is
designed without a label. For example, it does not deal with just a bursitis or a I-231
ter have, where I want to be yet, please, even if I am released from your treatment program. So, I'm
trying the overall pattern of body physiology to fi nd, illustrating how that person copes. Because that
makes me understand how the pattern looks, with this patient has previously lived, and how this pattern
works in flexion / external rotation and extension / internal rotation. Then I can go back to the
problem area and see how this patient is true to his type pattern in relationship.
In this evaluation I note also, of what quality of the mechanism of the patient is. For this I use the
idea that the mechanism in the healthy state has, so to speak 110 volts. I've been watching, it feels like
I at as if 110 volts screwing in the mechanism of the patient and flow out again? It flows with only 50
volts in and out, this is an indication. A 110-volt battery in a living patient indicates a good quality in
these tissues, so that ligament or joint membranous dysfunctions can correct. In such a case one has
enough juice to work with it; the battery is full of power and life. If the patient, however only 50 volts,
are its local tissue, especially in the area of dysfunction, fatigue much faster and you have an
appropriately cautious approach to what is initiated in the body or trying to achieve on this day. Maybe
this body endures only a treatment of a few minutes, before he tired.
For this Th ema fits a very nice story about a guy who had an incredibly acute inflammation of the
psoas muscle. I put my hands on this psoas muscle and after exactly 30 seconds told me that I should
damn again disappear from there. "I heard you, just now the door," told me his mechanism. Two days later,
the patient came back; This time I was able to stay almost two minutes to another, minimal change
took place. Then the local batteries were over. He should come back after a few days, but was

prevented business Lich. Its primary respiratory mechanism and its body physiology, however, had
received instructions - and suddenly on his way to a meeting in East Texas all hell broke loose. He was
almost thrown out of his car, while carried out the self-correction. On his next visit to the practice, he
said, "When I came to you after my first appointment home, has AGT my wife gefr:> What did he do? 'And I
answered:' He has only studied me, in two days he wants to see me again <After the second visit she again agt gefr, and
I said, '. He has not done anything. He has again just examined me and said that it back in order I-233
the parts. Direct back to the neutral position or healthy action is applied especially at a very acute
dysfunction, because by reinforcing one would intensify the symptoms of the patient in such a case. If
you try instead, return it and zulasst that the physiological function helps you, it is more pleasant for
the patient. This so called Direct
Action (which I want to emphasize again that I do not like labeling - even here).
Another treatment is apart Perform. 39 It works like this, as its name suggests already. In a
dysfunction between frontal and sphenoid may for example a notebook owned Coincident give s, with
all these toothed tines - the one must then lead apart.
When pattern of opposites physiological movements 40 falls as a
For a dysfunction of okzipitomastoidalen range. By trauma, the OS can be driven in a temporal pattern
of internal rotation that also extends across the membranes. Here, the occipital bone is driven into a
flexion. If we have an old chronic dysfunction of okzipitomastoidalen range, the slumbering unnoticed
for many years, we might use the opposite physiological movement. We carry the temporal bone or try to
bring it toward external rotation, while we at the same time the occipital Os result in an extension. We
are extremely careful and read with great Zartfhligkeit the quality of the tissue changes that ends stattfi
in membranous joint pattern. I give you here no technique for okzipitomastoidalen area, I describe the
opposite physiological movement.
And finally there are the shapes 41st These are all no techniques; there are the fundamental principles
that use the Primary respiratory mechanism, the reciprocal tension membrane and the body physiology
of the patient in order to correct their own problems themselves in the truest sense of the word.
For the newbies in this course, these are valuable methods to touch the patient and this tissue
recirculate by utilizing amplification, direct action or apart guiding to a point in the membrane voltage to fi

zen body and her fl ssiger content in reciprocal, mutual relationship with the primary respiratory
mechanism. The initiation of a function in one of these elements in turn initiates a physiological action
in all elements. That is the reason why it works. There are just words, but the palpatory experience
proves it.
Response to treatment
How often do I treat? I like to have at least one week between treatments, unless you have a patient
with an acute inflammation of the
Psoas muscle who kills you if you do not receive it earlier. When the
Patient the next time you come, lay your hands on him and begin your diagnostic program to determine
how things developed or not developed. Does it feel like: "Yes, I have this week been trying to get some work

done, but I'm not sure if I have understood you," then you know that you still have to do anything else. The
patient then comes in the following week again, you are doing the same thing. One week later, his
mechanism says, "Hello, Doctor, I'm starting to hear you; but I'm with these other things not done yet - I'm still
working on the last three instructions "So it lengthens the treatment gap to two times, and then once a month..
I try to keep my patients to treat just often enough to feed back repeatedly to what I'm working on back to the patterns that are healthy for these special people.
In the course of a treatment series, it can also happen that you take positive responses from the
body physiology produces a few splendidly unpleasant reactions. Especially in my novice years I have
succeeded in some cases, to accomplish some really great overreactions. It was for example that
patients, after I had tried a correction somewhere in the range of Os perform temporal, only once had
to lie on the treatment table and a half hours before they could get up again. You get something like
that but back under control. We can unpleasant reactions calm, by certain techniques - about a
compression of the fourth ventricle - apply, which we will discuss later.
Apart from such overreactions has it, when a patient feels after leaving the practice a little, mostly
to do with the work that just in terms of its I-237

Flexibility in osteopathy
This text was written in the 1980s.
The role of the practitioner is to serve humanity. The science of
Osteopathy offers a direct, based on a one-to-one relationship with the patient clinical approach for
this service to humanity. Purpose of the following essay is to show, for which wide spectrum of clinical
syndromes, the science of osteopathy can be applied, and in addition make an evaluation and an
anatomically-physiological interpretation of the results of diagnosis and treatment in the selected case
studies.
To clarify the point: I assume that the practitioner the
Science of osteopathy so applies, as formulated by AT Still and WG Sutherland that the structure
function of the body physiology of the patient their inherent, involuntary primary respiratory
mechanism and its anatomical and physiological integrated mobility, their motility and their fluid
Drive off enbart and that the practitioner of these elements to the inside, from
Body physiology of patients facing life can be used for his service to humanity in diagnosis and
treatment.
From personal experience I have learned that there is every time a patient comes into practice, three
factors are that are essential for the renewal of his health: first, the opinion of the patient or the patient
with respect to his or her diagnosis and stands on the treatment program, and secondly knowledge of
the practitioner at his diagnosis and his treatment program and thirdly, the body physiology of the
patient, the functional models in a direct one-to-one relationship with their located off enbarenden,
specifi c functions and Dys.
To ensure greater accuracy in diagnosis and treatment, it is helpful to know the opinion of the
patient regarding his illness. It is for the practitioner also useful to have an idea for a diagnosis and a
treatment approach. Most importantly, however, is that he has a trained Palpationsfhigkeit with which
he the dynamics of body physiology
Read patient, feel and listen to them may - whether these are their healthy funki 239
with extension and internal rotation. This rhythmically balanced, involuntary
Exchange is done 8 to 12 times per minute. As a total unit in the body physiology it is essential for
life and health. The secondary mobile, motile fluid Drive in the body physiology is the arbitrary

mechanism, to the individual at his or her daily activities needed. Specifically, patients can observe both
involuntary and voluntary mechanisms and working on the basis of its trained palpatory perception
with them the practitioner.
In clinical applications, these principles work (involuntary and voluntary mobility, motility and Fluid
Drive) together as a unit. I would like to present the case of a young woman who was sleeping in the
back seat of a car, as this crashed into a pillar in the wake of an accident and was stopped so abruptly.
After the emergency treatment was finished, this woman came to my office because her right leg always
swelled. In the morning it was still relatively normal, but then thickened during the day.
A palpation of involuntary and arbitrary units of their body physiology showed that the fascial
sheaths at left, healthy leg alternately moving quite freely along with the entire body physiology in an
outdoor and internal rotation pattern. When your right leg against the fascial sheaths moving only in
internal rotation; the
External rotation was relatively blocked in their patterns and so disturbed the venous and lymphatic
drainage. It turned out that the right leg of the patient had been in a pattern of internal rotation, as she
slept in the back seat at the time of impact. A corrective treatment triggered this fascial train the internal
rotation and brought the whole thing back towards health mechanism and good function - a satisfactory
venous and lymphatic drainage
was restored.
Another interesting case was that of a 46-year-old man who came because he had been suffering
for several years from chronic back pain. In history, it turned out that he had had a car accident with
head-on collision 16 years ago. The palpatory findings showed two major defi cits in the function of
the body physiology. One was that all the muscles and fascia in the cervical and thoracic spine anfhlten
as glass. The second defi ciency expressed as a "blocked" sacrum with complete loss of involuntary
movement. The entire pelvic ring - the os sacrum, the Ossa Ilia, the lumbosacral
Area and the two hip s - was not using the moving unit from I-241
This last-mentioned case is an example of a whiplash or a kind of inertia dysfunction with loss of
involuntary mobility of the sacrum. . This type of dysfunction fi nds hufi g My documents show that
in the last thirty years one in seven new patient came with this kind dysfunction patterns, with a relative
loss of involuntary mobility of the os sacrum between the Ossa Ilia - although this is not a part of his
current complaints was. If the patient was then asked: "Did you have some point a car accident," was the
answer hufi g negative?. But the question was: "Did you have times a car accident in which you were not injured,"
was the response is positive and the patient or the patient then remembered such, for months or even
years earlier inertia dysfunction?.
Obleich this usually is not the reason why patients seek treatment, the therapist meets with the
palpatory examination on a single-sided or double-sided restriction of involuntary mobility of the
sacrum, which means that the mobile, motile, 8 to 12 times per minute stattfi Ndende, rhythmic fluid
Drive cycle of body physiology of the patient does not deliver its full Nhrpotenzial. However, since
the patient is due to other problems and did not come his blocked due sacrum, to develop a treatment
program for what the patient is suffering, and then takes during the treatment phase some time to solve
the dysfunction of the sacrum, so that it in his involuntary movement work freely again. This solution
process coordinated with all other treatment corrections toward health. There are many different forms
and types of inertia dysfunctions and all require a specifi c findings, a specifi c diagnosis and treatment.
The syndrome of the sacrum with whiplash is used here as an example, because there are so hufi to
observe g, diagnose and correct towards health.
When working with the body physiology and their inherent unity of involuntary and voluntary
mobility, motility and Fluid Drive, revealed when the therapist examined by palpation detectable
pattern. Here are three exemplary cases of e "shocked" lumbar thickening of the spinal cord: The first
case is one of my colleagues, the lever through a skylight

"Not to heal the sick is the duty of the machinists, but a part of the whole system back to adjust so that the water can fl ow Lebensfl ows and the
parched fields" [From:. Still AT: The great Still Compendium. 2. A., Volume I: autobiography, JOLANDOS, 2005 S. I-94].

I-243
carry out, if the patient is at home - and usually it happens that way. If the patient then reported at the
next visit of this change, the practitioner can verifi adorn this result. A fact when working with the
body physiology in patients is that the body physiology during treatment in practice though initiates its
corrective change towards health, the actual treatment results but set up between treatments. Next visit
in practice, completed changes confirmed and you look at what is still necessary to continue the
treatment program. The body physiology as a teacher is highly accurate in their diagnosis and their
treatment outcomes.
In the third case, a similar restriction in the lumbar spinal cord showed thickening; However, the
cause was a completely different. A man in his fifties suffered a few years from chronic circulatory
disorders of the lower Krperhlft e and had already been unsuccessfully with several doctors. In his
medical history showed that he twenty years ago a number
had received from 28 rabies vaccination; these were injected into the abdominal muscle that is
innervated by the lumbar thickening of the spinal cord. Over time, the toxic eff ects of these
vaccinations had the quality and functioning of the spinal cord affected in this segment. The
Tonusqualitt in the muscles and in the lumbar thickening was very poor. This provisional diagnosis
has been explained to him; but he refused to be treated further.
Findings associated with dysfunction of the lumbar thickening of the spinal cord, are not rare. The
three cases presented here are examples of different types of mechanisms which can trigger a reaction
in the spinal cord. In this case, the reaction consisted of an overload or a shock in specifi c sensory,
motor and autonomic segments of
Nervous system. If the coming of the traumatized area aff erente sensory input persists, established
the shocked spinal cord in the lumbar thickening the phenomenon of a closed circuit. This can be a
Compare message on a tape recorder to be played repeatedly. News from the injured area to report a
trauma, and the feedback is an ever-recurring event that continues even when the injured area is
stabilized. This can take weeks, months and years go on.
The basic activity of the body physiology is a rhythmic, involuntary, 8 to 12 times per minute in
sunbeds stattfi flexion and extension of the structures I-245
Session will continue. If on the other hand, although some kind of correction stattfi friend, but there
is no evidence that the body physiology of the patient has improved its quality in the traumatized areas,
meet these so-called corrections not what the physiology needs. A before and after test conducted to
help assess the health quality in the areas of relative health and in the areas of closed circuit are,
valuable insights into the work with the living mechanism of the patient. The day will come when the
patient enters the practice and announced its mechanism: "I'm fine," A Test of the elementary tools of
his body physiology, namely the functional unit of mobility, motility and fluid Drive will confirm this
statement.. Closed loops are gone and all traumatized units work toward health before.
The dentist, who developed his sense of touch, to work with the body physiology of the patient,
can also include palpation herausfi ends: When it comes to a heart attack, carried out at the same time
an implosion in the Th oraxhhle. Watch the first time I was able to in the case of a woman who in
the
Sixties, was treated for relatively minor complaints made and then suffered a massive heart attack. She
survived him and came after for other treatments in the practice. When I evaluated the quality of
function in the thoracic region, it felt as if the entire wall of the Th ORAX in a fascial restricted state a striking change compared to thoracic tone in the chest before the heart attack. It was like bein

pregnant an excessive shock or an implosion the chest cavity - an implosion, which had to fi nd and
treat disease, so they disappeared and more recovery was possible.
Over the years I have observed such an implosion in several patients and all developed this
phenomenon as part of a thoracic fascial response to the shock of a heart attack. Whatever the
complaints in respect of which the patients visit us: You can also treat this implosion to allow another
healing of myocardial infarction. This is an example of one of these silent physiological events that the
Palpationskunst the practitioner from within, out of body physiology out, show up. Loosening the
damage caused by the implosion fascial train can only be beneficial for the overall promotion of the
health of the patient.
The body physiology is the silent partners and the foundation for health throughout the human
beings. Two basic principles are the ones that I-247
states, which appear due to trauma and / or disease in a particular area, do more than just correct: they
melt away and literally leave behind health centered again in the physiological function. Whatever the
practitioner applies to correct: The rhythmic Tideneinheiten work about 10 times per minute and act
like lubricating oil, which cooperates with other trophic factors to resolve the consequences of stress
and return the area to health. The practitioner can develop his touch ability to feel this healing changes
in body physiology of the patient to read and learn.
As part of the healing process, the flexibility is restored.
The role played by the body physiology in their service to humanity and to every single human
being, is very real, and you can use them very well within the framework of a one-to-one relationship
between the care provider and patient.The point is not what the doctor can do for the patient, but what
he can do to get the doors for self-healing of the patient or the patient to ff NEN. In all cases
previously described have the patients who were treated to recover and go on the return journey
towards health, by taking up the basic principles of body physiology - namely involuntary mobility,
motility and function of the fluid Drive together with the arbitrary, in daily life required mobility. The
practitioner accepts the vibrancy of these acting in the patient's principles and developed the palpatory
skills, the qualities of relative health, as it manifests itself in the individual patient, as well as to feel, to
overhear, to read and to recognize as the specifi c qualities through which express trauma or disease in
the stressed area. He can do such local specifi dysfunctions ausfi thanks to its tactile feinstgeschulten
constantly and igenden basic principles work with the inherent Krft so that the patient will recover.
It's a - at least verbally - generally accepted fact that the body physiology of every human being
constantly strives for health, whether it is conscious or not. This verbal acknowledgment, however, to
implement every day as part of a one-to-one relationship with every patient who comes in personal
experience, is a real challenge.

Chen pain in the same area and of course is not particularly happy with it.
I have to admit that I probably am sitting at the wrong end of the lever. The whole
Noise comes from the upper Krperhlft e, but nothing indicates there an Eff ect. The
Patient experiences no relief. So I go further down and put my hands under the sacrum - and the thing
is completely blocked, it can still go in extension neither in flexion. To test the movement in this area,
I put one hand under the sacrum and the other arm across the hip legs. While the patient is now bringing
his feet alternately in flexion and extension, I feel like moving the entire basin as a unit. This means that
his sacrum is completely fi xed later in this pool, because otherwise would be, if he moves his feet, the
hip legs feel the sacrum and how three independently movable from one another units.
The sacrum was thus blocked in its basin - but where have expressed all the symptoms of the patient?
Above, at the other end. Up there they complained because they had to work against a completely
blocked pelvis literally. There was pain, there neuralgia, there the train to the fascia. So his symptoms

were all caused by a completely blocked basin. For this blockade is needed to figure out a reason and
when I asked the patient why, was that he - the self only about 75 kilos weighed - had taken out of his
sports car the 125-kilogram engine to heave him on a few blocks. And in the process he had taken off
Enbar a so unfavorable posture that his sacrum downloading or was pushed between the two Ossa Ilia.
There was nowhere else to go. To deal with this, I used a handle across the basin, on the aff enes tissue,
and worked, where I used the Tide that comes through there 10 times per minute.
If you touched a dysfunction pattern, let work. Your grabs the tissue in this area and around it and
adds to some compression. Your calls the mechanism which automatically goes in flexion, extension,
internal and external rotation, and follows the patterns of dysfunction in this area. I position my hands
in aff enes area and apply with the help of my arms or in other ways enough compression that results
in a change. This compression then stimulates the bones to Ilia, as they would call out to them: " Hey,
wake up - we are working on you! "

Extracts from lecture notes that emerged 1969-1986.
In our thinking there is a conscious and unconscious tendency to separate Cranial Osteopathy from the
body Osteopathy. This idea of a separation, they now may be consciously or unconsciously, we must
eliminate from our minds. It is essential that we remove this dichotomy in our thinking and understand
the body in the science of osteopathy as something whole. He is from head to foot a functional unit.
When it comes to tackle a problem, one must always consider this issue as something that affects the
entire science of osteopathy.

Art as opposed to a principle: do something with a problem is tech-nik; to work with


an inherent mechanism within the problem is the application of a principle, no technique.

Healing: an individual manifestation of a universal principle

Health: harmonious, effective life

Treatment: Treat people, not clinical problems in people!

Dr. Sutherland According to one can, with regard to the direction of movement, actually feel a

inner layer moving somewhat differently than the outer. To work with it, you sit there quietly and gently

this point of balance, reads it and makes a change between the inner and outer layers of each bone in

The experience to learn as we go with our minds and our hands by the pattern of the cranial base, and
perceive how the living reciprocal tension membrane is able to take the sphenobasilar mechanism in
different patterns is useful because these patterns clearly a clinical have relevance for certain types of
problems. It is also important to understand these patterns in the broadest sense. When we go through
this pattern of sphenobasilar Synchondrosis, we fi nd out for us, in which the patient sample in question

This paper was written in the 1960s.
"Cause and effect are made continually. The cause may in some cases at the beginning not be
as large as in other, but time enhances the effect to the effect extends beyond the cause and it
ends in death. Death is the end or the sum of all effects.
I expect the reader just that he takes care of the difference and the progressive change in the
effect as an additional element which engages in the debate and the effect can come increasingly
important to note. " 43
Let these thoughts of Dr. AT Still use and briefly talk about the role of osteopathic dysfunction in cause
and effect. How manipulate every day or many times we mobilize the osteopathic dysfunction or
dysfunction in our patients and are thinking that we are doing everything for these cases in this area of
our treatment program, which is possible for us? If we would but into embark when analyzing a
dysfunction problem deeply into the mindset of Dr. Still, we might discover that we do not have to do
it in our way of handling this case with effects and causes.
We recognize in our medical care that the prescribed medicines from us at a high percentage are for

cause. This also applies to the mere manipulation or mobilization of an osteopathic dysfunction, if we
limit our efforts and our thoughts alone on these methods. We change the patient's pattern of
movement and the result is a change in the symptom complex for some time. If this patient then the

Cause and effect - Part 3: diagnosis and treatment
When a patient comes to us, he brings one or many complaints and a history of trauma or disease.
We collect the history, make an inquiry, let lab tests do so and feel with our experienced hands,
whether there may be as a physiological and pathological cause of the patient's problems. We diagnose
the problem as a problem of disturbed health.
Our most important task should be to seek the existing in every human being predominant
functional model of health, its us to be aware of it to feel at his functioning and to understand how
health looks for this individual at the time of initial examination. Our second task was to identify the
existing patterns of dysfunction that the prevailing overlay pattern of health. One must understand the
specifi c basic health pattern that we are looking for this individual at this office visit at this time of
diagnosis and treatment, and devise a plan to produce it, so that it can function properly.
All cases described in Part 1 are consequences, consequences of trauma or illness that lead over time

protesting that with them everything is fine when it draws their attention that they might suffer from a

An osteopathic treatment is one of the best therapeutic options for both types of patients. If the

Balanced membrane voltage
Revised version of a lecture recorded on tape held
1976 in a basic course of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
If a load leads to a dysfunction pattern, keep the membranes of this stress pattern upright. The result
is that the "normal" fulcrum is pushed over to the dysfunction point, ie the point at which the field was
gone in a dysfunction. Within this pattern dysfunction there is a point of balanced membrane tension.
There is a Fulkrumpunkt, a relative point of stillness around which to organize all Krft e. By bringing
all these Krft e in balance, then the mechanism goes through a still point, a Fulkrumpunkt, a moment
of silence. While this still point, the fulcrum shifts back towards the so-called normal pattern of this
man - towards the Sutherland Fulkrums - and the result is the correction that is possible on this day.
Through this process, changing the Fulkren in the cerebrospinal fluid and in the reciprocal tension

noticing him. In such cases, you will notice that it is not so feels as if many disputes in the head ends
stattfi; it feels as if it goes smoothly, it feels effortless, and perhaps the head is also hot - then one knows
that one has passed through the Still Point.
How to use the principle of balanced membrane tension? Suppose you decide that day to focus on
treating a twist as the right to come into appearance dysfunction. We initiated this Torsionsmuster,
admits that it is in the full range of motion, it stops then gently in this area and does not allow that it
goes back to the neutral state. While you hold it there, it goes through its cycle of confrontation, goes
through a still point, and then leaves you to it back drift to the new neutral state et that it has discovered.
If you do this, you have not only a membranous joint dysfunction - worked, but also I-267 - in this
case a Torsionsmuster

At the beginning of life the cranium is still trying to develop a structure. The plates of the Ossa
frontalia and parietal bones arise from connective tissue and are connected with each other
membranous. The bones of the skull base are preformed from cartilage. At birth, there are 11 small
pieces of this arising from cartilage bone: four parts in the occipital bone, three in Os sphenoid and
two each in the temporal bones. This bone portions are connected by cartilage zones with each other
and by the reciprocal tension membrane with its three sickles and its lower tacking ungspol the sacrum.
Over time, if the Ossifi mature cation centers and grow together, these eleven different units are in
fours: Os sphenoid, occipital bone and the two temporal bones. Just think of all the fascia, all the
connective tissue elements, which are attached to the skull base and form the framework of the body.
Think well to the rhythmic fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid and the 8 to 12 times per minute stattfi
Ndende movement (the structures) of the center line and the bilateral (structures) in all these developing
tissues. If the base of the skull could develop freely, as would be the structure function of the body?
Then again thinking about the reality: There is at least minimal, but seriously hufi ger e changes the
base of the skull, caused by Krft e from outside - can prenatally, perinatal, postnatal or later happen.
How then are the patterns of structure and function in baby, child or adult?
The only joint circuit in the cranium, which operates at birth is, the connection between the condyles
of the occipital bone with the Gelenkfl surfaces of the atlas. In adults, there is the occipital bone from
a bone while it consists of four parts in the child until the age of seven or nine years: a basilar which
lies anterior to the foramen magnum, the two lateral Partes, which limit the foramen magnum side and
the posterior occipital squama, which is connected to the cartilaginous Partes lateral. The condyles
converge anteriorly and diverge posteriorly. When the head of the fetus passes through the pelvis at
birth, can the contractions with a compressive force that is transmitted uid on Amnionfl, drive the
condyles in the articular facets of the atlas, which in this age of single bony contact and a Fulkrumpunkt

occipital squama or the Pars change basilar and produce a structural pattern that a little bit from the

Found problems in local areas. Some of this is fascial ligament or joint dysfunction that has been made
throughout the body of the child as a result of his or her activities of daily living. If you can diagnose
the proprioceptive contact and work in the treatment to restore health in the dysfunctional tissues, this
is a one-to-one relationship between the practitioner and the inherent vitality of the baby or child.
Another case history illustrates this point: A nine-year-old boy had fallen a year ago and since then
limped. On examination I found a ligamentous joint dysfunction in the left hip area. In the palpatory
examination of rhythmic external and internal rotation to the right hip e showed healthy but on the side
of this dysfunction foreign and internal rotation were limited or inactive. The ligamentous joint
dysfunction has been corrected and joints with a renewed investigation of alternating internal and
external rotation of both hips this was equal on both sides. This showed that a recovery towards health

The craniosacral mechanism of a baby or child has Reten a number of specifi c areas where relatively
often dysfunctions runs. The membranous joint dysfunctions that can hufi g temporal in older children

Body physiology plus power factors
This article, the original 1959 Yearbook of the Academy of Applied Osteopathy (now American
Academy of Osteopathy) was published, was entlichung for Verff in this book largely revised.
In today's literature fi nds a lot of discussion about the effects of force on the body physiology. All
traumatic events require that you analyze what is going to happen to the body physiology and what
course of action you must now apply to the daraufh treat in problems identified. However, it is also
important to see this traumatic experience in a different light - namely to recognize the role played by
traumatic force in their relationship with the body physiology. To illustrate this point, however, one
needs first a clear picture of the body physiology to be - and that can be extracted at least partially from
an explanation of the term s homeostasis. In the first part of this article will therefore briefly describe
this concept, while it comes to some of the principles in the second part, which involved
must be to understand the role force in cooperation with the body physiology.
Homeostasis
In his book Th e Wisdom of the Body Walter B. Cannon perfected the theory eorie and work of Claude
Bernard in relation to the processes of self-regulation in the body and gave the whole thing the name
of homeostasis, what he described as "a tendency towards uniformity or stability in the normal conditions of the body
Organism "defi ned. The Th eorie homeostasis can with the principles of
AT Stills osteopathischem concept are compared; the similarity is off Obviously.
Cannon begins with the perception of instability. His goal is to understand how the body can remain
stable at all. Homeostasis is the body principle, which refers to the automatic stability, the body
constantly I-277
only references to the state of the body at the time of sampling. Carrying out the test a few hours later
by, the body has developed a whole new set of quantitative and qualitative values. The fault lies in the
instruments themselves. In order to be accurate and reliable, an instrument must necessarily only have
limited adaptability and can in this limitation only cover a small reaction region, while a number of
factors that contribute to this reaction, remain unaffected.
But the problem is not insurmountable. The practitioner who is willing to learn about the many
parts of the body in relation to their position as well as to their functional aspect, that is the way you
work in the integrated body has taken a big step towards an understanding of this system. He needs to
know
where in this scheme scaffold each part is sitting, and its maximum Arbeitseffi ciency in his functional
status within the framework herausfi ends by taking the entire physiological functioning of the body as
a reference. And that requires more than just a check of the end products of its capabilities. So a
doctor checked as the passive range of motion of the hip e not only on the basis of internal and external
rotation of the femur relative to the pelvis. He would also like the body's ability to rotate the hip joint
itself outwards and inwards, so know how it demonstrates the body with its own self-regulating,
reciprocally balanced mechanisms. Exactly what Dr. Still meant when he understood of anatomy (and
physiology) is sprach.47

Body physiology plus power
The aim of this article is part of it, to unite the factors strength and body physiology together. The
physicist and philosopher Victor F. Lenzen provides in his book Causality in Natural Science a significant
interpretation of the application of force to a specific body - not as an activity or pure symbol, but as a
characteristic external body in the vicinity of a certain body. He says that a force from the outside is
not just something that happens to the body, but is one of the environmental factors that work with the
body.
The body physiology never rests. The "silence" body is never still. His inner environment is
basically fl uous and constantly on the move. Any external force is therefore added to a moving
mechanism is inside. The body physiology is a collection of living cells, bathed in moving liquids whose
biodynamic structure is changed when a force comes together (from the outside) with the body
physiology. Cellular systems assume new functional models, if power added factors. It comes to
subjective and objective symptoms such as movement limitations, pain, neuralgia, myositis, fibrositis,
ligamentous and membranous joint dysfunction and other disorders. As long as the force are factors
since that body physiology has to compensate for its normal physiological function this growth. The
patient must include factors that force in any arbitrary activity and at every involuntary activity in its
internal milieu with every move that he makes. Which has been written into the structure and function
of its cells, in its homeostatic mechanism.
My current opinion is that this force factors that are, so to speak driven into the body physiology,
wearing a wavelike motion in the liquid matrix and each cell. This will in turn recorded by the peripheral
nervous system and this impression in the nervous system is part of the pattern of the CNS. Is he
strong enough, the CNS receives this data, and then reappear in the commands erent eff in the motor
system, enter the trophic system and the autonomic nervous system. The whole mechanism has a new
feature pattern geschaff s, which corresponds to the body physiology plus power factors. All this is in
addition to the local injuries that had to endure the body and are usually the only thing that will be
treated by a doctor.
Cellular Intelligence is a recognized quality of all biological tissue; and I-281
Instead of the diagnostic process to test the stressed area related to limitations in the functioning
and disturbing the patient, the practitioner should reverse this process. The area is anatomically and
physiologically accommodated as possible in the position in which he feels most comfortable. Since in
the course of most accidents, a force has acted on the patients in him is then to fi nd, induces the
practitioner while he seeks to focus the maximum effi ciency, a degree of compression - but not so
much that it interferes with the physiological action this tissue, but enough to work with tissues when
you are looking for their new equilibrium baseline. This is a part of that Tonusqualitt, of which I
spoke in the last section. The whole point is to go to the focus of the most comfortable position, but
not look up to what extent the area is limited, but to read the Tonusqualitt the maximum effi ciency.
Tissues are telling the story.
An example: A woman who had put in a car accident with total loss her leg under her body was
positioned according to their accident history - now the Tonusqualitt and the physiological function
of her injured leg was almost as good as in the other leg, especially if a moderate compression was
added thereto, which corresponded to the force of sudden Gestopptwerdens. The same applies to
other similar cases. Each sample shall be considered individually for each patient and for each added
force vector. It is really noticeable how this added power to dissolve factors, if the injured areas were
set precisely in their anatomical and physiological position. To position it so that the physiological

This is possible only when the vitality of the regions has improved. A correction of structural

Case 1: A man in his mid-thirties. He suffered for 18 months to shoulder pain, a Brachialisneuralgie
and repeated acute movement restrictions of the neck and had the usual for these complaints local
dysfunction who were treated three or four times. Although the treatment did every time some relief,
but a few hours after the problems were there again. Finally came out that he, just before all these
problems began, its 125 kg engine of his car after repair alone
had again lifted into the body. Thanks to this information we found to be the main problem, which
upheld everything, it was dissolved in two treatments and he was even years later symptom-free. In his
case, the power of his effort when lifting the sacrum between the two Ossa Ilia had blocked, namely at
the level of S2. However, there was no restriction of the movement of Ilia in relation to the sacrum to
the sacroiliac joints. With the loss of free movement and the integrated function of the sacrum between
the Ilia were the paraspinal muscles and ligaments, including those that extend to the shoulder girdle,
limited in their built-in function, and when he used these structures randomly, there was always runs

suffered during the day at a generalized
Swelling of the left leg, from the foot to the pelvis, at night, however, the symptoms subsided. When
examining showed ligamentous joint dysfunctions in the right sacroiliac area and in the hip joint, knee,
ankle and foot, and indeed throughout internal rotation dysfunctions. Eight osteopathic treatments
with the aim to correct these various dysfunctions, brought a certain reduction of the pattern and an
improvement of symptoms and swelling, but the necessary satisfactory progress did not show up. In
the ninth treatment told the patient that they have slept at the time of impact on the backseat. I asked
them to take the former position on the treatment table, and she curled up in the right side position
together and produced the entire pattern of internal rotation for all the in symptom complex aff enes
structures. The car was driven at about 50 km / h of a bridge pier and the heft impact strength in her
leg had a total pathological phyi-285

a week to resolve the shock in his tissues and his body physiology. It took almost a month, until it
shocked body physiology of receive-ready contact of the practitioner gave an indication that their
normal repair mechanisms - now freed from the burden of the additional force factors - were able again
to fulfill their job completely.

raised while his lower back so damaged that it was still wrong. Worn down by his constant
Eingeschrnktsein the man was about to leave to stiffen the aff enes area in an operation. His
radiographs showed the following findings: a spondylolisthesis first degree, a pronounced
spondylarthrosis the lumbosacral segments with an almost complete fusion of the front edges of the
fifth en Lumbarwirbelkrpers and the first sacral segment and a marked degeneration of the
intervertebral disc in the fifth en space, which in itself by a strong contraction this area showed.
Over the next five months he underwent a total of 28 treatments and after five months of treatment
per month. During this period, there was a complete resolution of his limitation. He could ride, win a
100-meter race against his son and draw buckets full of sand from a well on his ranch. After all this
was accomplished, he was sent to another radiologist to follow. The report of the radiologist was a
duplicate of the first findings; Nevertheless, his symptoms did not occur again in the last six years. Of
course, the man continues to confront all complaints potential of a congenital unstable spine with
degenerative changes in themselves. But be arisen by the Sacks-lifting main issue additional force

accidents. The woman's head was during the accident against the windshield and side against the

In the initial treatment program it came to physiological
Thus, the stress syndrome and to correct the shock because the assistance available in more normal
areas of the body physiological functioning then sit down again and get the maximum possible healing
could. Irreversible pathology is not correct, but in this kind of problem you can do much to bring areas
where a reversal is possible to work again.
The following is a letter that Dr. Becker wrote to a colleague on Sept. 4, 1981:
Regarding: body physiology plus power factors Dear
Doctor,
To answer your question, I have read the article again after twenty years. Although he is too wordy
and redundant in many ways, but his basic message to Th ema body physiology plus power factors
applies today as it was when it was written. However, it is necessary to briefly out
why it was written.
The first part of the article on "homeostasis" can be summed up as the fact that in the body
physiology structure function and functional structure are interdependent and their own internal
processes. Besides there are the arbitrary mechanisms of the body and the rhythmic involuntary
mechanisms that work to flexion with external rotation and extension to be created en with internal
rotation, in every cell of the body,
from head to toe.
Against this background, I want to emphasize something related to palpation: I spent ten years at

X being affected by whiplash
This article has been revised by the Issuer on a larger scale.
The original was published in 1961 in the yearbook of the Academy of Applied Osteopathy (now the American
Academy of Osteopathy).
The title of this article describes the level of impairment in a
Whiplash: the point of application of force "X" through the whiplash caused. It is this starting point
and some of the resulting consequences for the patient are explained here. Three of these consequences
are particularly emphasized: the induced whiplash mental and emotional changes that ows trophic
influences within the aff enes tissue and the time factor or chronicity in the aff enes patients.
The adventitious Krft e
The analysis of a problem caused by whiplash begins at the point of impact. This impact point are in
a friend typically not within the patient's physiology, but the vehicle traveling the patient at the time of
the accident. This force, which from the point of impact, which hit the vehicle, proceeds will drag the
entire patient affected. His entire body is stopped abruptly, either in its movement or the direction of
its relatively sluggish movement is radically changed or he is - sitting in a stationary vehicle, on the other
ascends - at a stroke from hibernation set in motion. In any case - whether the body mass is now
brought to inactivity suddenly into motion or movement suddenly in a relative inactivity - it comes to
a pronounced physiological shock and to a direction of change in the whole body system.
This picture you will still need to add the individual physiological body parts that come here in active
contact with the vehicle. If the rear of the vehicle made the village s, the contact point is the back of
the seat, in which the patient are in a friend. The relatively free neck and upper shoulder area is I-291
curved spine mechanism in the thoracic vertebrae area. In every human being there is scoliotic patterns
varied proportions. And it's off Obviously, that each of these variations becomes responsive
throughout an individual way to a whiplash. The so simple mechanical differences between male and
female bodies can expect a different reaction. Some
Basic patterns, the power to take the sample in the same direction, which already keeps an aff ene
pattern, whereas it may be in other way around. In a kyphotic pattern like the direction in which the
force meets in the kyphotic area, the direction in which runs the kyphosis, be diametrically opposed,
while a vaulted forward thoracic area is reinforced in its anter Ioren direction. This simple example can
be deepen by means of a detailed analysis of each type aff enes.
But there are still more to add ever-present factors in these cases, namely the adaptation mechanisms
that accompany in response to earlier trauma experienced each of our basic physiological pattern. These
compensatory patterns were also exposed to the arc force generated during the spinning process and
must be taken into consideration. It is my observation that this adjustment patterns are decompensated as a result of whiplash, then like sleeping tigers come to life and add their symptoms on
the damage caused by the whiplash symptoms.
Sometimes it takes some use to unravel the various factors that weekly in patients for months or act
for years: Are there direct remnant of whiplash or are there compensatory dysfunctions that have been
awakened and now must first be reassured about the patient return in a tolerable state? Such a
recalcitrant case requires a precise diagnosis. As long as the body still acts a certain, arising from
whiplash force, this force will be a factor that would like to aufgeweckten "Tiger" keep awake, and there
is a diagnostic way to evaluate the healing response of the patient by observing how fast return its
adaptation mechanisms back into a state of rest. The compensations that do not return to this state,

show that there is something that prevents the reversal of the pathology, and this "something" is usually
a residue of the power factor, which acted at the time of injury through the whiplash on the body , I
can say from my personal experience that these compensatory mechanisms usually back to a more
normal physiological functioning zurckzufi ends when this factor is resolved.

a lateral impact unilaterally. Such consequences of whiplash injuries are deep and lasting.
In this situation, the long paraspinal muscles and ligaments, the iliac of the cristae are rich to the
shoulder girdle, limited in their functioning - not only during the breathing cycle, but also in
voluntary movements of the shoulders and neck. When palpating the upper area, you can feel that the
base in the basin is fi xed and does not float freely. Every movement that carries out the patient with
his shoulders, arms or the neck, therefore is a work against the resistance of the blocked
Beck mechanism. This may be one reason why the shoulders and neck remain tense, tired quickly and
retain their limitations in such cases.
The sacrum, the anterior longitudinal ligament is connected, which was further injured up and now
a functional limitation clearly bears down to the sacrum. The dura mater that surrounds the spinal cord
hanging freely down from the upper cervical vertebrae and from the foramen magnum to be then fixed
at the level of the second sacral segment back to heft s. At a loss of respiratory movement of the
sacrum is the spinal and cranial Dura in their normal
Respiratory movement restricted during inhalation and exhalation. Also restricted is the filum
terminale the pia mater, which in the coccygeal region tacking his clothes fi nd. There are some
limitations for the normal upward motion of the spinal cord and peripheral nerves associated structures
during inhalation as well as to a limitation of the downward movement during the
Exhalation. From the physiological disorder of the spinal cord and the central nervous system resulting
in a continuous dysfunction level, which contributes as a result of whiplash injuries to chronicity and
trophic changes.
The other postural movements of the Ossa Ilia in relation to the sacrum are not disturbed in general,
which is why so-called sacro-iliac dysfunction related to an injury due to whiplash not often runs reten
- only in cases where compensatory mechanisms were disrupted. Not all problems caused by whiplash
is the sacrum of the key, but in many cases it plays a very important role, because it maintains the
dysfunction syndrome of whiplash and the compensatory mechanisms.
There is another anatomical detail, which I think it is important for whiplash. There is a level with
the fourth and I-295
Psychological complications
First a quote from World Wide Abstracts of General Medicine, that illustrates this aspect of the problem:
"The painful consequences of whiplash ... s accompanied by psychological complications, which are characterized by anxiety, depression,
hyperexcitability, and especially confusion. Patients expect unusually high number of statements, reinsurance, personal attention and for

In 47 cases examined (23 men and 24 women) the severity of the psychological symptoms did not correlate with the extent of the injury. In
almost all of the accident had been caused by a foreign vehicle Auff Ahren on the standing or very slow-moving vehicle of the patient, where this
felt very safe at the time. Then came without any warning of violent> attack "from behind and made a cozy a dangerous and painful e situation.
Most patients say they know nothing about the course of the collision.
It is believed that this displacement mechanism is set in motion, because the
Accident has happened too fast. In some people, the ego can not mobilize the normal defense mechanisms and therefore
chooses the more drastic mechanism of denial. This makes it impossible to edit the importance and burden the accident
emotionally.
It seems as if the ego unconsciously perceives that in order to accept the accident may have to accept the possibility that the control - head and
neck, which were hurt - can be separated from the body. In this regard, the violation of the neck is unique in psychological whiplash. Both this

unexpected, sudden runs Reten and its unconscious meaning produce in normally well-integrated and stable people usually greater anxiety than
injuries of body parts.
"From this perspective, the emotional aspects are an important part of whiplash. They do not depend on the circumstances now and are in
no signifi cant relationship with previous psychiatric disorders. " 53
This succinct report describes the situation very clear and serves to emphasize some of the already
mentioned in this article aspects: the integers

venous drainage of all these important nerve centers? What happens with the venous drainage of the
eye sockets? The motility of the nervous system usually has its own rhythm. With a terminal filum and
the pia mater, which are limited in the sacro-coccygeal region, but there are further functional
limitations within the central nervous system.
Is it any wonder that these patients are anxious, have depression, appear hyperexcitable and
distraught? Some may tell you that they feel that their eyes would be drawn out of the eye sockets or
pressed into it. Is considering a blocked dural membrane and an insufficient
not easy to understand the venous drainage, why?
Another such limitation is the disturbance of the normal fluctuation pattern of cerebrospinal fluid
- a serious pathological process leading to dysfunction and as serious as the venous stasis.

Yes, psychological factors play a major role in whiplash. They are effects of physical factors - factors
so that contribute reversed to maintain the psychological consequences. Diagnosing and treating the
physical factors brings hufi g a major breakthrough in solving not only the psychological impact, but
also the pathological physiology. In my personal experience, these symptoms disappear quickly when
the normal physiological motility of the central nervous system, the normal mobility of the surrounding
membranes as well as the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid is restored.

this juice pump back into the cycle. We therefore depend primarily on the Tonusqualitt the fascial
pump and the muscular activity of the body, to return the fluids through the veins and lymphatic vessels.
If these pumps weakened, we have a chronic congestion - minimal in extent, but lasting effect than
dysfunction.
Trophic disorders manifest themselves in many ways, partly depending on the various forms of aff
enes body types, from the length of the period in which these "septum cleaners" were affected by the
increase sensations photosensitivity of special, protected by the fascia and nourished tissue and by the
presence or absence of other diseases or traumatic conditions. The degree of restriction may vary, but
you can feel that there is both a general and a specifi cal problem. That's right, every disease and every
traumatic conditions include trophic changes, but hufi g there in whiplash first minor changes whose
effects accumulate during the following days, weeks, months and years, until the results with the words
of Dr. can be expressed Still:
"Cause and effect are made continually. The cause may in some cases at the beginning not be as large as in other, but time enhances the
effect to the effect extends beyond the cause and it ends in death. Death is the end or the sum of all effects.

I expect the reader is that he carefully the difference and the progressive change in the effect as an additional element which engages in the
debate and the effect can come increasingly important, notes. " 55
In this way, trophic changes and their consequences in any cellular system, organ system, or the
musculoskeletal system of the body can manifest in our whiplash patients because the patient has been
exposed to an overall pattern of potential restriction. The pattern is localized in the course of time in
specific regions and keeps specifi c symptoms upright; but both, both the specifi c and as well as the
"silent" regions are en aff.
The positive side of this image is that these trophic changes a

I have learned to feel the function or dysfunction of the anatomical-physiological mechanisms of
these patients, not only the degree of mobility or immobility of the dysfunctional regions. Each
structure in the body is subject to during the respiratory cycle of a rhythmic change. All midline
structures move during inhalation in flexion and in extension during exhalation. Also make all bilateral
structures external rotation during inhalation, and internal rotation during exhalation. The movement
is minimal, with the touch but noticeable if you look at trained to feel the function of the tissue.
Limitations of these factors help in the diagnosis. A generalized restriction means that the whole person
from a total dysfunction in varying degrees is aff s. Localized dysfunction means that specifi c details
have to be examined in order to explain the restriction.
The term chronicity has hufi g a negative meaning when it is used to describe a patient. When I use
this term, I refer only to the period in which the patient is already burdened with the whiplash. These
patients are not just "chronic pain patients"; they have never been and there will never be. Your
limitations are effects that can be diagnosed and treated; and thanks to the potential reversibility of the
pathology occurs in a large percentage of patients to a considerable extent to a recovery towards more
normal function. This automatically brings out the negative classifi cation as a "chronic psychosomatic"
I say this because I too was often very surprised when it came to the patient well again. and of course
the patient was relieved when he discovered that he was recovering from long-lasting symptoms.
I also had my failures, primarily due to lack of diagnostic skills, but even if I had too little time for
the necessary corrective changes. It takes time to crank the engine in some of these long-lasting static
Faszienpumpen; But if they will finally come to life, the recovery to a new level of health is irrefutable.

TER for this one individual that should be evaluated by the practitioner to determine the baseline of
health for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment. The health that have a man or a woman in her sixties,
is off Obviously different from that of a man or a woman in her twenties. The physical characteristics
of a body which is long and slender, are different from those of a short and stocky body. The impact
of past illnesses and injuries that have occurred during a life, of which the patient recovered well and
he has well compensated, are all a part of the overall pattern of health for this individual. All of these
factors belong to the findings of the baseline.
Let us now consider the various body systems in detail: The connective tissue system is a framework
of multiple layers, ribbons and feinstgestalteten mechanisms by millions and trillions rooms where sit
the working cells of the body. It is a living system that has a Tonusqualitt, health or ill health expresses
so that the palpating hands of the examining practitioner they can detect. In connective tissue, the
system of muscles and bones sitting.
The skeletal system is comparable to a vibrant, finely-designed Mobile. These include the shapes and
contours of the individual bones of the foot as well as the 22 bones that make up the cranial mechanism.
Each bone is articulated with its neighboring bone or several bones, so that the entire skeletal system,

extremely eff does its job during the time spent by the person on earth ectively. Throughout the entire
life are all in motion, from head to toe. The body muscular systems, together with the connective tissue
fascia that she with the skeletal system
connect a scaffold that serves the coordinated movement of the individual. There are other muscular
systems in the body, which serve to maintain the internal functioning of life: the cardiovascular, the
kostorespiratorische, gastro intestinal and urogenital system. These systems of muscles and bones have
a vibrant Tonusqualitt that is felt for the diagnostic and therapeutic hands of the practitioner, and can
be evaluated as part of the baseline of the health of the individual. There are many other soft tissue
systems in the body; This includes all viscera. The central, peripheral and
autonomic nervous system are also counted to the soft tissues. They form a vast communications
network that serves the functional processes throughout the body.

Flexionskurve above and below the range of abgefl eighth place. The junction regions of the various
scoliotic voltage patterns are particularly empfi ndlich regarding whiplash-related disorders.
With regard to the physiological dynamic structure and function in their functional relationships are
mutually interchangeable. We have already briefly discussed the structural aspects. The physiological
function of the human body can be roughly divided into two main categories. One is the
arbitrary use of the body in its everyday activities. If you're healthy, you use all body resources for the
most part unaware of the diverse activities of daily living, started when you get up in the morning, then
goes to work, play and then go to bed to sleep through the night, so that one of is the next day ready.
The musculoskeletal system, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system and
all other systems do their work easily and professionally.
There is another function complex, the friend stattfi in the body. Again, this is for the overall health
of the people is of fundamental importance. It is the primary respiratory mechanism, which can be
divided into five parts: the inherent motility of the brain and spinal cord, the fluctuation of the
cerebrospinal fluid Cerebrospinal, the mobility of intracranial and intraspinal membranes articulated
mobility of the cranial bones and the involuntary mobility of Os sacrum between the ilia Ossa. All these
five units work together in a harmonious, rhythmic patterns of the overall function; they are inseparable
in their inherent functional capacity that allows them to function throughout the body physiology, from
head to toe. This simple, rhythmic motion (alternating flexion / external rotation and extension /
internal rotation) fi nd place in the whole body mechanisms, no matter what other patterns show at a
structural analysis: the scoliotic curves, the different types of physique and all other data.
It's a small movement that is not easy to notice when the practitioner has not yet trained its
Palpationsfhigkeit. But it's there and you can
fi nd when the practitioner down on his sense of touch to their level of functioning. Its importance lies
on the one hand in the fact that it is part of the normal physiology, and secondly that this rhythmic
motion helps to maintain the normal health of the individual. So this is the individual who will be now
exposed to a disease caused by a whiplash sprain.
I-307
gen content of all body cells, this power exposed. This reduces the chronic Eff ectiveness of all
structures, which are surrounded by the fascia. Since the fascia virtually envelop all somatic structures
in the body, this may be a factor contributing to the fact that a complete recovery can not stattfi ends.
In many cases, but the whiplash-energy releases during or shortly after the accident entirely, and only
acute, traumatic injuries and decompensated physiological body mechanisms will need a treatment to
restore health. However, there is also a certain percentage of cases where it does not dissolve, and is an
additional factor in the physiological function of the body of the model of health of the patient. You

will then become a part of the body physiology, with which the patient must deal when his body strives
to heal.
In patients, the presence of this unidirectionally acting force field to fi nd, is more difficult the longer
ago the accident. In some cases, however, even I could find another 35 years after the car accident. One
must not necessarily fi nd, but you have to understand that it may be present in the functional processes
of the fascial body physiology necessarily. His presence is a medical condition, which can be observed
by means of palpation, and it contributes to persistent fascial dysfunctions.
Technology for detecting an unresolved whiplash-energy field:
A patient who has been exposed to a frontal impact in an accident, you can take the supine position
on the treatment table. The practitioner seated at the head and lets his hands slide under the torso of
the patient to make contact there. The patient's weight is sufficient to secure a good contact with the
hands of the practitioner. The hands are not lazily under the patient. The practitioner projected his
sense of touch through his hands in order to get an overall impression of the whole body. Then
he tempted to feel specifi cally oraxwand to front Th. While continuing projected his sense of touch,
the practitioner should close his eyes and the
Feel vector presence or absence of a unidirectional directed force, which runs through the whole body
anteriorly. To close your eyes, is not absolutely necessary, but may increase the sense of such a
phenomenon. If there is such a force vector is, it will make about one minute noticeable in the body
physiology of the patient, and indeed towards the ceiling.
I-309
Rotation of the head at the time of the accident occurs Torsionsauswirkungen, wherein on one side of
major injuries may arise as to the other. The Aa. vertebrales may be aff s. Frontale Auff ahrunflle
produce a Krft owned hypersurface ection of the neck and spine; Again, perhaps many anterior and
posterior structures are injured. An impact from the side often creates a complex exercise and injury
patterns.
While the car accident, there are the added factor of a unidirectional field directed force, in which
the moment of inertia of hundreds of kilos of mass to move through the body physiology towards the
point of impact. These vectors in force field do not follow the normal planes of movement of the
ligamentous joint mechanisms of midline structures in the body physiology (flexion, extension, and
rotation with Sidebending). Through their momentum they interrupt the movement planes of midline
structures at angles that are opposite to the normal movement. Therefore, fi nd the hypersurface ection,
the hyperextension and Hypersidebending rotation in the body physiology to a strong resistance
instead. The accident triggered by power factors towards collision point set of the entire mechanism of
the fascia and connective tissue and ligamentous joint mechanisms of the whole body physiology
nonphysiological Krft s.
The effects of a car accident on the body physiology begin with a shock for the whole cellular
physiology of the body, from the feet up to head high. Whether it is a major or minor accident:
Generally, the patient gets out of his car when he can, and claims he is not injured. The shock wave is
quickly hindurchpassiert through his body physiology to pathology to be created en that he will feel
later; At first he felt a numbness of sensation in the central nervous system communication. This shock
can be after a few hours gradually, and its pathology can be expressed in the form of symptoms. It can
take days until the tissue shock finally dissolves. I've even seen cases where a tissue shock was still
present three months after the accident.
Brain injuries by direct impacts to the head are hufi g. If the
Car hit from behind, it also comes to a Krft strength hyperextension of the neck, which brings to the
base of the skull because of all the muscles and ligaments, the tacking mechanism at the base of the

cranial en, a sudden train with him. An injury of the brain and brainstem may also result from pressure
differences to be caused by a pressure build-up or in Scherkrft s I-311
these physiological ability be restricted. The aff enes segments, unable to exercise at a relatively fi xed
Fulkren their natural functions, to the strained ligaments have healed. This loss of automatic adaptation
as Fulkrummechanismus is even more serious when it comes to the membranous hinge mechanisms,
with the consequent disturbance of venous drainage and the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid.
This booklet strength movements of the body, and the Krft e, where it is exposed to, de-creating
the potential for microtrauma in all Krperfaszien, the seated in the fascia somatic cellular elements
equally aff s are such as those with the fascia their fl uid content are wrapped. This microtrauma cause
tiny fascial fibrosis pattern and leave in the fascial planes tubular areas of increased tension back that
affect the future function of the somatic structures within this fascia: muscles, nerves, blood supply to
tissues and their venous and lymphatic drainage. This leads to a disruption of homeostatic mechanisms
compensated and develop scoliotic voltage patterns of the
Areas of the skull base extend beyond the spine up to the sacrum and become focal points of
Facilitation in the decompensated body physiology. It comes to the collapse of restriction patterns that
the patient had before, and he could yet compensate sufficiently.
I call such a disorder "more alert Tiger."
In this context, "describe Tiger" old injuries, illnesses old and old patterns of a physiological disorder
have been compensated by the people. Patients have many months or years felt good and had no serious
problems with these s problems that can again come to life, however, if the person has had a car
accident.
Hufi g is then the patient who comes to you complain - not about the
Fact that he had a car accident, but that this created many years ago and so far held control problem
now again making trouble. He has tried it as before with the same treatment, but this time the problem
is not to. If you then raises his history, you will find that he had a car accident - a few weeks, a few
months or sometimes even a year before it came again woken Tiger to annoy him. Not with a lively
Tiger is the problem: the whiplash, with all its consequences on the primary respiratory mechanism,
this tiger disturbed, and is now back to life, tearing around in this patient and the I-313
express in a full physiological movement restricted. When it comes to membranous joint dysfunction
in the cranial mechanism, the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid may be disturbed. This in turn
prevents adequate transmutation of nerves in the central nervous vitality
vous system, a major factor that is necessary for the healing of the injured in whiplash nervous. The
drainage from the brain venous ladders in the skull becomes more difficult - another factor that
contributes to a disease of the central nervous system.
The cranial dysfunction in case of whiplash include membranous restrictions of Sutherland
Fulkrums and the inner membranous lining of the skull cup, unilateral or bilateral dysfunctions between
occiput and atlas, dysfunctions of the temporal bone, modifi ed forms a okzipitomastoidalen
dysfunction etc. disorders of the fluctuation of CSF accompany dysfunctions of the primary respiratory
mechanism always; so they are always present in such cases.
These modifi ed form a okzipitomastoidalen dysfunction is an interesting point. Here it is not, as
usual, produced by a blow to the occiput, which drives this inward, but. By the sudden train of whiplashforce acting as the suction cup of a Klempnerpmpels about the deep cervical fascia on the basilar part
of the occiput Your debilitating clinical result may or may not be as large as in the conventional
okzipitomastoidalen dysfunction - but this depends on the specifi c effect on the brain venous director
and the tentorium in the cranium from.
One limitation of their normal mobility experiences hufi g the reciprocal tension membrane. This
includes the dura lining the skull inside the falx, the tentorium and spinal dura that envelops the spinal

cord and spinal nerves accompanies each when he leaves the spinal canal through the intervertebral
foramen. As the Sutherland fulcrum is restricted in its entire normal operating pattern, and the two
hlft en the tentorium each at the Margo sup. petrous have been et heft, this dysfunction can affect
each of the nine cranial nerve, the temporal near the Os by
Run Dura. This in turn may lead to many bizarre symptom pictures. Even the "sleeves" of dura that
envelops each spinal nerve, can exert a restrictive infl uence, as the restriction of the dura, which triggers
a trigeminal neuralgia in the cranium. The dynamics of this mechanism is that the for normal
metabolism in the nerve function is so important I-315
Extremities are now working against the resistance of a fi xed base in the basin. Pathological stress in
these areas will maintain in his sick, little effi cient state and the wedged sacrum, with its loss of
involuntary flexion and extension movement, is a major factor in the collapse of the compensatory
homeostatic mechanisms and decompensation of scoliotic voltage pattern.
Since the sacrum forcibly yanked out of its place in the basin as well as forcibly reset again was in a
combined ligamentres and membranous dysfunction patterns, it immediately loses its ability to act as
an automatically changing to, free-floating fulcrum. The sacrum is now xed at the level of the second
sacral segment in position in the tank fi; the larger
L-shaped portions of the sacroiliac joint are usually not so very aff s. The upper thoracic vertebrae and
the cervical vertebrae areas have lost a floating fulcrum that existed about 45 to 60 cm from the sacrum.
You must compensate for this loss by they behave more like a whip. Ligaments and other tissues that
are already stressed out because they still need to heal are now forced to work even harder to maintain
the dynamic function of the spine.
In order to illustrate the whole, it can be the comparison between a
Tree and stuck in the ground staff use: The tree can yield from wind and shows no stress because its
roots provide him sufficient compensation capabilities. The driven into the ground rod may indeed
turn forward or backward, but its resistance is much higher due to buried into the ground portion; he
does not have the same elasticity as the root of a tree structure. Just making a fi by whiplash xiertes
sacrum every movement of the thoracic or cervical resistance.
Normally, the sacrum moves between the Ossa Ilia involuntarily in flexion and extension (in the
expansion phase of the cranial base, the base of the sacrum sinks to the bottom and moves anteriorly,
while the caudal end moves posteriorly, in the flexion movement is reversed ). A free sacral mechanism
allows for operation of the trunk and the cervical spine. However, if the sacral mechanism is restricted
in his freedom to move and work with the Ossa Ilia as a unit, it becomes a fi xed fulcrum that creates
a resistance to the free movement in the trunk and cervical spine. A restoration of function and mobility
of the sacrum is necessary for virtually all car accidents.

lenbereichen can feel. If the practitioner with gentle hand he holds these areas to receive diagnostic
information, he will have a feeling as if he were sitting at the end of a lever which moves with the quiet
pattern of physiological function and the patient's breathing. It feels as if this movement work from a
fi xed base in the basin, which is indeed the case. Usually when so suspended the Beck mechanism free,
conveys a movement in the cervical and thoracic vertebrae areas not that leverage end-feeling; you only
feel the movement of the local feature in the neck and
Th ORAX. You sensed as a lever-like motion in the neck and chest areas, you should check the pool
on a possibly impacted sacral mechanism towards.
Treatment in the event of chronic whiplash

The key word for a therapeutic approach is: physiological function. This applies both for the diagnosis
and for the treatment, for all treatment programs are continuously monitored diagnostic analyzes, of
the first to the last treatment. You need the diagnosis to determine how the pattern of health in the
normal physiological function of the patient is or should be; you need a diagnosis to determine the
pathological anatomical physiological function, as it is the first office visit or subsequent visits; and you
need a diagnosis to determine the effi ciency of a treatment program in the case of course, to know
when the physiological function of the patient has returned to health. The treatment of chronic
whiplash cases is very complex, because the physiological function is disturbed in so many different
patterns. You have to consider in diagnosing and treating a lot of the individual patterns that show up
in every case adapt, in these cases. Sometimes it is in a chronic case difficult to realize that it is based
on a whiplash because the possible restriction patterns are the whole person subject s and has become
over the years a subtle Dysfunktionieren, and because the focus of individual complaints, any system
or may involve a combination of systems in the body. Mostly the patient brings his current symptoms
are not related to his old, hufi g already forgotten whiplash experience.
I-319
Mechanism. The sacrum was completely xed between the two Ossa Ilia fi; it could not move
independently of the Ossa Ilia itself, whether forward, backward, up, down, or otherwise. The normal
rocking motion was not passed on from the pool by the muscles and ligaments. There was simply no
movement - it was blocked. All aff enes muscles were about to dry up -. "Dried up fields"
We started once a week with a treatment in which only my
Put his hands under his sacrum and worked on this by trying to accept everything that was found in
the entire mechanism - whatever it might be, if it would have on this sacrum any infl uence, we wanted
it to happen. I compressed the already compressed in sacrum strong enough that it noticed my presence,
and called for it to thus to wake up. For a while nothing happened. Three months later, I suddenly
realized that the sacrum anfi ng, like a very hard piece of wood instead of behaving like a stone. After
another three months, I felt as if something was moving in this sacrum. Finally, after nine months, the
patient came to treatment and its sacrum was really alive - it worked like an involuntary mechanism. At
some point this week since the last treatment, had Enbar off the effects of all treatments of the past
nine months
combines, the sacrum to life and began to function IG fully Krft. Now I could discharge the patient,
because the only purpose of the treatment was fulfilled.
Five years later, the man and the Tonusqualitt and everything else came back orakalbereich the top
theory was completely normal - no longer felt like glass, It was in perfect condition. Sometimes I see
him in company union events, and he is now, 20 years after treatment, as strong and healthy as you can
be. If he had that, he would have continued to this blocked sacrum? I do not think so.
There are really hundreds of patients with pain in the neck and upper
Back to come and have forgotten that she had a car accident. When the
Treater looking for it, it will ends the physical indication of the effects of whiplash fi. Cases that respond
very slowly to the usual treatment, you should re-examine this premise.
The first goal of the therapist is to determine how health for the patient looks. His second goal is a
corrective change in I-321
act they not do for the time being - by complaining that they have to work now. The next time the
patient visits you will then find that they have completed a correction and change.
In very few cases, patients stay with you until you had the normal functioning pattern that they Reten
before the proceeds of whiplash injury, can fully recover; but virtually all can be a well-balanced,
compensated, asymptomatic state return, allowing them proper functioning in everyday life. Irreversible

pathological areas can not be recovered, but do not be hasty in your decision as to whether an issue is
irreversible or not. If you stay tuned correctly, you will be surprised you about the results.
Your goal is to look into the subject patient the valid health and for him to bring them back into an
active, physiological function. Can nd the abnormal function fi anyone, even the patient. It hurts him!
I've been using specifi c physiological Krft e in patients by I latent, dormant or quiescent physiological
energies transmuted into him in active or kinetic physiological energies that bring the body in the truest
sense of the word to be treated at each office visit itself. I plan physiologically what is appropriate in
each treatment, and let the patient's body physiologically participate to his own treatment program to
be created en. If your patients treated thinks to, deal with the ever-changing patterns that show up you
can, on the physiological function. Then you will each patient have proven an osteopathic service, which
has a healing effect.
The treatment of chronic whiplash I would now like to explain using the following four steps:
1.
Deriving brought in with whiplash, unidirectionally-oriented, non-physiological
energy fields throughout the body physiology of the patient.
2.
Restoring involuntary flexion and extension mobility of the sacrum between the ilia
Ossa and solving a fascial train down in the pelvis.
3.
Correct specifi ligamentous joint dysfunctions associated with the car accident.
4.
Reconstructing and returning a compensatory scoliotic myofascial tension function
in an "Easy" -Normalitt for the individual.
I-323
force for the solution used. From its below the sacrum hand the practitioner projects his sense of touch
towards a balance point, comparable to that used in the technique for deriving the whiplash-energy
fields. In other words: The practitioner seeks to transform the in his hand lying motionless in a sacrum
sacrum that can go along with the flexion-extension cycle of moving feet. Its like a bridge over the ASIS
of the Ossa Ilia set free arm he can cooperate by gentle pressure on both spines strengthened in order
to both meet Ilia front and NEN back ff and so give the sacrum space to resolve its blockage by him.
The dentist may also involve the help of the patient by letting breathe this deep while moving his feet
and asked how the practitioner ensures its point of balance. Let him hold his breath as long as he can,
and then exhale. This can be repeated two to three times him.
This rhythmic Dorsifl ection and extension of the feet and the ff nen of
Beck shell by the dentist will continue until the therapist feels that the pelvic girdle begins to dissolve
as far as ag in this Behandlungst is possible. It must be achieved no complete solution. The time required
for this technique should not exceed five minutes per treatment. The body physiology will visit until
the next practice and during the follow-up treatment to the problem work until then its complete
dissolution can ends stattfi and friend also stattfi.
Here is the key to greater susceptibility in the touch of the practitioner in diagnosis and treatment
that he projected his sense of touch of his below the sacrum hand to the forearm-hand contacts to the
SIAS and vice versa from there on exploiting under the sacrum RURAL hand. In this way he gets the
widest possible understanding of what is happening in the pelvic ring, while the patient cooperates by
moving his feet and / or holding his breath.
To correct the dysfunction diagnosed heard the attentive Mitbedenken all participating in the
infringement proceedings the ligamentous and membranous joints factors. The correction should be
extremely gentle: Man trying to allow the inner physiological processes show their own infallible Krft
e to solve the dysfunction, while the hand the process only directs and analyzed under the sacrum. Th

rusting and other techniques that use force are to be stapled strength for this kind of problem. Many
of these I-325
the spine areas that had direct contact with specifi c vehicle parts to ligamentous joint dysfunctions
manifest as a result of rapid, spin like movements of the head and the cervical spine in the loading
movement patterns during the first accident moments.
The practitioner can use any osteopathic technique he mastered well in order to diagnose this specifi
c ligamentous joint dysfunctions and treat. He should keep in mind the following points: These
dysfunctions can in the cranium, in the entire spine Reten runs up to the sacrum, at the
Ribs and in the extremities. They are caused by trauma and when they
Production was a lot of energy. Therefore, they are of organic and importance have not only functional
character. che the layers transverse to the height of the dysfunctional region throughout the entire
body fascial surface are above as well as the deeper fascial aff en levels and below the dysfunction.
In my clinical experience, is achieved by applying dissipative
Techniques to facilitate general myofascial dysfunctions or the liberation of a wedged sacrum (in cases
where you are dealing with one of these two problems or both) a lot and also promotes the
Ed eyes soft tissue dysfunctions that can include to the specifi c dysfunction pathology. I use such
techniques always in front of a specifi c correction of each dysfunction. In osteopathic techniques,
which you can then apply for the correction of those specifi dysfunctions, you should be aware of how
extensive the tissue involved, and not just concentrate on mobilizing a specifi c Gelenkfl che. Attempts
at applying the technique to feel how the correction takes place both across the entire soft tissue as well
as in all its facets.
4. Recovery of compensatory myofascial scoliotic voltage function in an "Easy" -Normalitt for the
individual. The microtrauma in the fascial planes of the whole body and the production of a specifi c
dysfunction pathology have contributed to the well-compensated scoliotic function between the
sphenobasilar synchondrosis top and the sacrum has collapsed below. In chronic cases of whiplash
decompensation this is not mentioned in the complaints catalog of patients, however, the practitioner
will ends in his investigation fi when he carefully diagnosed by palpation. A well-compensated scoliosis
is part of normal

Approach to clinical problems
Summary of a text in January 1958th
Before one begins to discuss a clinical Th ema, it is my opinion advisable, it initially recorded an overall
picture before it disappears behind too many details. The Cranial concept is part of a broader concept
- namely the osteopathic concept as Dr. Andrew Taylor Still had imagined it. Dr. William G. Sutherland
insisted that his work to belong to, which had been started by Dr. Still. It should never be anything of
the general science of osteopathy Separate.
From Dr. Sutherland all correspondence en his comprehensive understanding of the cranial concept
and of its relationship to osteopathy in general can be seen. And you can from them even draw more
conclusions: His concept was in its construction holistically, and his tools were firstly the craniosacral,
anatomic-physiologic mechanisms with their ability to function by itself, and their inherent living quality
and to other talent of the practitioner, these
Mechanisms to elicit knowledge to diagnose and treat can. This type of thought building requires at
least some degree of insight into his totality before you can remove any parts of it out of context and
defi ne or discuss. The same applies to the writings of Dr. Still.
If one thinks in terms of Dr. Still and Dr. Sutherland, it is important to
Always look people holistically. The physiological processes that represent normality, and mean the
dysfunctions in the processes that disease, are only one part of the picture. One should always see these
items as something to an overall pattern belonging and classify their place on this basis. Dr. Still and
Dr. Sutherland wrote their works with this holistic approach in mind. They did not separate the person
from their physiological or disease-related processes. When working with a physiological or diseaserelated process they studied, they always kept the whole person
Forefront of your mind. Reference point for their thinking was the man in his I-331

Clinical observations
Revised copy of a lecture given in 1976 during a basic course of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation
in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
I would like to talk about a few things that I have observed in my practice.
Hypertension: Interestingly, it can be established in most cases, soberly hypertension that the
tentorium cerebellum down and seems to be forced apart. It is relatively fl at and would not be high
arch. I have treated a number of such cases. Such a reciprocal tension membrane must be trained
again to function normally. This is slowly made over time - because, how many years did it take to
develop these essential hypertension? One can this reciprocal tension membrane but teach slowly, her
job is hochzuwlben rhythmically to get right again, and the essential hypertension can then control
with fewer drugs than usual.
Dyslexia: From time to time you will on children with dyslexia taken en. Often the parents bring the
child because of other complaints to you and not because it is dyslexic. By the way, they tell then, that
it suffers from dyslexia. You can then complete the treatment in order to help them. Virtually all
children with dyslexia the clinical findings is an intraosseous dysfunction of the temporal bone, the
petrous is turned into a kind of internal rotation dysfunction while the squama is more or less the way
it should be. When one examines these children, the Os temporale feels almost as if it had some sort
okzipitomastoidale dysfunction, with a traumatic stress in this tentorium that says that something is
wrong here. But it is a intraosseous dysfunction, usually the right temporal bone, sometimes the left,

depending on the child. With the help of forming Techniken56 and by the Tide of cerebrospinal fluid

to be alive and to feel good, but it needs as we said six months to one year of treatment per week to
get the results that you want. This treatment is a complement to their medical setting or other things
that you want to do.
Brachialisneuropathie with blocked sacrum: As I have mentioned on other occasions, one should make
sure to whiplash that the sacrum float freely along with the rest of the mechanism. I want to emphasize
again here therefore, because the sacrum not normally makes attention through complaints. Almost
always have to look for it. Patients are not saying that it hurts them down there, but they have pain
above.
The following case, in which the cause, however, was no whiplash, illustrates this: A young man had
on both sides for 15 months a Brachialisneuropathie. When I touched his neck and his shoulders,
herauszufi correspondent to why he had a Brachialisneuropathie, I felt like I was at the other end of a
lever; because no matter what I, as I sat quietly, at this end did: I was moved around. Now, when I'm
at the end of a lever which moves, then it must give off somewhere Obviously a Fulkrumpunkt, which
is relatively quiet. So I went to the sacrum, to investigate it, and yes, it was in his respiratory function
completely blocked. When I questioned him further, I found out the reason. The guy loved his sports
car. However, he weighed only 75 kilos - and when he lifted his engine one day to return him to the
car, he blocked his sacrum.
The first two times, when he came into practice, I tried ends herauszufi what was going on. The
third time, I found the sacrum and solved it. The fourth time the sacrum was free, and the fifth en time
there was no more Brachialisneuropathie. Point. So that was the end of this case. Since his sacrum fi
xed and was blocked, he had the top of the shoulder girdle do everything against resistance. Your pool
should give actually, if you move your arms. Due to the loss of this micro-movement he had every
time he moved, move both: the Ossa ilia and sacrum, and his nerves. Brachiales were in continuous
voltage. When triggered the sacrum and could move freely now, the tension disappeared in the brachial
fascia to the plexus. - The same situation obtains incidentally also a chronic whiplash upright.
Compression of the skullcap: It is possible to get a massive, traumatic
Incurring compression of the entire cranium, when in the Schdeli-335
so is. Then, when you worked with him, her revitalized that energy field that its vitality is such that it
moves back toward the normal 110 volts.
You can also leave the superfl uid energy ABFL ow if it is a burden for the patient. Here's a practical
example: A man came to treat in my practice and I could feel that his mechanism basically had 110
volts. It was a relatively normal mechanism in many ways, but one had the feeling that he somehow
hovered at 110 volts, so it was an undecided mechanism which said, "I would love to work, but I'm not so
sure it is in this moment is a good idea "When I treated him -. I do not remember exactly how, probably with
a CV4 technique - I was in contact with the fluid drive and the reciprocal tension membrane. And
suddenly took place in a change or a change, and the man began to cry.
Then he told me that in his newly inaugurated pool the child of the neighbor had drowned. So he had
a total shock and a completely blocked mechanism. The treatment he could drain their emotional load
and start again to work. The energy that had blocked him, went back there, whence they had come.
We do not care,
where energy comes from, but we know that the mechanism can respond to them and build either or
scatter, as it is needed. It takes a certain amount of caution and care when dealing with such emotional
dysfunctions in patients.
So you can read the patterns in people. In patients who you already a

While've treated you encounter when trying to see the pattern that you usually fi nd, perhaps on small
areas that are overweight or have too little in them - either need a drainage or recharging. So you have
many applications for what you have learned this week - a lot more than you're thinking.
The timing of dysfunction determine: You can learn to feel how long a problem already exists. People ask
me: "How do you know that this person has the problem for ten years," It's nothing fancy?. If I an old, chronic
ligamentous or membranous joint dysfunction fi nd, I ask the patient: "When you had an accident in this
area," he answers perhaps:. "Ten years ago," Then I know: this is a dysfunction feels, is ten years old. It is
easy. And if one makes repeatedly, one begins to recognize what that feels like a ten-year-old
dysfunction.

only a bony connection to mobilize and bring into motion. The entire area is characterized by the
dysfunction aff s. If you have a dysfunction pattern, it is to normalize the target of diagnosis and
treatment, the function of this region, so that everything runs as it corresponds to the physiological
needs of this patient.
I have given this brief explanation, because the discussion of your two next two questions on certain
cardiac and urological pathologies a perspective requires that includes more than just the bony
connections that are described in a typical osteopathic dysfunction. We are dealing with the functioning
of the institutions, and we must therefore think from the standpoint of a functioning anatomy and
physiology of - as it applies to this organ - and its ability to be sick, just consider how its ability to
become healthy again.
The Heart
If we are dealing with a pathology of the heart - a heart attack, coronary artery disease or a Herzinsuffi
ciency - we must think of the innervation, blood supply and function of the entire cardiac mechanism,
as he lives in a functioning chest and breathes , The heart area is riding on the curvature of the
diaphragm and is rocked with its movement up and down. Its basic innervation comes from the
vegetative plexi in the upper dorsal region.
These are the ribs and head are part of the sympathetic trunk. They branch out into branches to
the neck region and the cardiac ganglion and climb from there to the heart from - that's the sympathetic
innervation. The parasympathetic nerve supply comes with the vagus nerve from the brain stem
through the foramen magnum. If we want to do something for these patients, we must think of the
normal anatomy and physiology, which helps to control the operation of this mechanism heart. That
is, very briefly describes the anatomy and physiology of the central control mechanism of heart.
I treat a young pediatrician because of his lumbago, and I let out the tape, you sent it to me. He
was very interested to hear how I answer the problem that I just discussed with you - this
Heart situation. So I told him the same story I just you ERI 339
as for the function of the kidneys, which we will then discuss. One can think of the heart region and
the diaphragm as follows: The left crus of the diaphragm is continuous with the muscles on the right
side of the diaphragm; the right crus of the diaphragm leads to high and is part of the muscles on the
left side of the diaphragm. So if we can do something to resolve the tone and tension in the upper
lumbar region of the crura on both sides, we will normalize the movement of the diaphragm in the
trend.
Picture 5 diagnostic in the series Touch (see page I-196) shows the method that I use in general, to get
to the crura of the diaphragm. Although the Bildunterschift reads Upper lumbar and psoas, but I let my
fingertips just below the twelfth rib e slide, toward the lumbar vertebrae. The crus of the diaphragm is,

just like the psoas muscle, anterior to and on the sides of the vertebral body. So you have to deeply
think in this matter. Your fingertips are below the twelfth rib and en close to the head and the hand is
just below the twelfth rib e in this field. Then you think deeply through to the crus of the diaphragm,
and bring your fingers, the course of the twelfth s rib following, slightly outwards. You think deeply,
until you can feel or feel like a change in the anterior crus friend stattfi on this page. If you work on
the right, you loose the right crus and thus the left side of the diaphragm infl Ussen. If you then work
on the left side on the left crus, infl uenced you the right diaphragm. So you can solve the crura on
both sides of the lumbar spine.
Then you can your hands under the top dorsal place, as shown in Figures 7 and 8 in diagnostic touch
(see page I-197f.). Here you are trying to feel the function of the upper Dorsalbereichs that
normalization - the release of the tension in both the upper dorsal area and on both sides in the upper
chest. By treating the upper dorsal area and the function of the vortex, but also the ribs, the surrounding
muscles and everything else goes with it, ensures Solving the in this area usually relatively mobile source
of the down in the neck region and from there to Heart extending cardiac plexus. The parasympathetic
innervation passes through the base of the skull. A cautious attention to the
Area of the temporal bone and the occipital bone is attached: The interplay between these two bones
should be such that the vagus nerve can do his job.
I-341
The urogenital system
Let's now move on to the other issue that you have incorporated into our discussion: a young woman
with recurrent inflammation of the bladder.
The concern that it could develop kidney problems, make it the candidate for the use of suppressive
antibiotics. We need to think about the basic anatomy of these regions. There is the Nn here.
Splanchnics supplying the parasympathetic part and a part of the sympathetic
Lead innervation with it. The lower thoracic and upper lumbar two Nn. Spanchnici lead the
sympathetic innervation to the kidney and the suprarenal structures as well as the sympathetic
innervation to the bladder and other organs of the pelvis.
We must also bear in mind something else: The kidneys are moving up and down with breathing
and make every body movement of patients. They ride on the surface che the crura of the diaphragm
and the psoas muscle on both sides of the lumbar spine. Uterus and bladder sit on the pelvic diaphragm.
Strictly speaking there are in the body several diaphragms: the pelvic diaphragm which closes the
basin below, then your diaphragm, which the Th ORAX and abdomen separated, and finally a cranial
diaphragm which bilateral from the
Tentorium is that the Grohirnhlft s underlying of the
Cerebellum separated. All three diaphragms are lowered by inhalation and stand out on the exhale.
You know that it is the diaphragm so, and the same applies to the pelvic diaphragm and the cranial
diaphragm.
The pelvic diaphragm is in many of these cases that we are discussing here, lashed, particularly in
young women. It is pushed down so that it does not move rhythmically up and down. The pelvic
diaphragm may be held on one side or bilaterally below. This is the result of births or gynecological
surgery s and makes a function of the pelvic diaphragm impossible. In such a case, bladder, vagina,
and other organs to be disturbed in their fascial sheaths up to a certain extent - they can not so move
with the breathing cycle, as planned.
Because healthy tissue can ward off bacterial infections of all kinds, we tailor our treatment from it,
the nerve supply that controls the blood supply to these organs, and restore to allow the movement,
which ends should stattfi in these areas. The treatment to solve the pelvic diaphragm is relatively simple.
Dr. Howard Lippincott wrote in 1949 an article on I-343

the side under the fifth en lumbar. When bladder problems there is always a dysfunction or a voltage
in the range between the fifth lumbar vertebra and the sacrum s. There is a fabric tension throughout
the entire area of the fifth lumbar vertebra and the sacrum s. Interestingly, one achieves a considerable
control over the irritability of the bladder, when redeemed (by having a hand under the sacrum and the
other under the Proc. Spinosus of the fifth en lumbar vertebra to see what's going on) the voltage when
So in this area for a while working until you can feel how the function in the sense restores that they
can do what they want.
When your grandmother visited us a few years ago, they had such a pronounced bladder
incontinence, that she had to wear insoles. She was six weeks with us, I treated every day and made
this nothing more than what I've just described. At the end of that time, she did not need any more
deposits and was for two to three hours free of urination. After her departure crept gradually regain
their old incontinence, but of course it was a long standing, chronic problem, and she had a long-term
treatment needed. The idea is certainly to approach at a urinary incontinence in this area and to achieve
a correction of the mechanism between the fifth lumbar vertebra and the sacrum s.
These urogenital problems, we also go up and solve the crura of the diaphragm on both sides, as it
is described in the cardiac event. This achieves two things: Dissolve the tension not only in the C Rura,
but also in the psoas muscle, and it creates a stimulating infl uence on the autonomic innervation of the
kidneys and pelvis. While you are under the sacrum and the fifth lumbar s, one automatically tones the
nerves extending therefrom, the parasympathetic innervation of the pelvis.
I believe that this simple method, the so-called pelvic floor lift, releasing the mechanism of the fifth
en lumbar vertebra and the sacrum, and the release of the crura and the psoas to support the freedom
of movement of the kidneys and the autonomic innervation - to normalization chronic bladder
problems, or at least contribute something to bring help. Examine the diaphragm pelvis and
lumbosacral junction with these people very carefully and work on it defi nitely something to solve in
both areas. See if that does not make a difference in the symptoms of patients and the need to use
drugs. A small report later I would be happy.

simply the hip joint in each leg to herauszufi ends, in which direction would rotate it (see Figure 24 on
page I-208). I check out the good leg and fi nd whether it preferred indoor or external rotation. Then
I check the leg in which the strain has happened at the knee, and fi nd out whether it wants to go in an
opposite pattern, because usually preferred in each patient the external rotation one side, the other side
internal rotation.
If I z. B. a dysfunction pattern with internal rotation fi nd, I bring it deliberately in the direction of
this dysfunction pattern, with the same hand position as shown in Figure 24, until I feel how it dissolves
in the pelvic area. Then I feel that the pattern has declined and now again equal to the normality of the
subject patient. This correction of the hip joint dysfunction support at a relatively slight knee injury in
which there was no broad ligaments, the healing of the knee. It does this by looking at the long
Lever the hamstrings and quadriceps adjusted again. Then the knee problem can get started and even
perform even better correction if it does not have to work the field with a partial dysfunction in the
hip. So it is advisable for all knee injuries to hip check area to the normal pattern that this man is true
for the basin, herauszufi ends and any existing dysfunctions of internal or external rotation correct.

Tacking ung at the junction with the falx and is also attached to the right and left edges of the temporal
bones petrsen. Dr. Sutherland called the three sickles: the left tentorium, the right tentorium and the
falx. In sinus problems we actually have to do it with membranous joint Trains to which the falx or
the tentorium belong.

The tentorium is both Partes petrous temporal bone attached, and the temporal bones are in turn
connected to the zygomatic bones. Restrictions of the full breath movement of the right temporal bone
restrict the movements of the zygomatic bone on the right side, and thus the pumping motion of the
"plumber's friend," the one of the right maxillary sinus.
Limitations of the physiological expression of falx interfere with normal motility and mobility of its
anterior tacking ments to the crista galli of the ethmoid bone and the sphenoid bone. The sphenoid is
for normal loading
mobility of virtually all fourteen bones of the face responsible. Almost all the bones that make up the
face, have a direct connection with the sphenoid bone or a clear, indirect connection with its motility.
Whatever happens with the sphenoid, will therefore have a direct infl uence on all facial bones.
During normal breathing cycle when the Synchondrosis sphenobasilar moved in flexion, the
sphenoid bone raises its rear connection to the occipital bone; the front end of the os sphenoid
descends slightly, and the rear end of Os ethmoid lowers with him while lifting his front area. Directly
below the perpendicular lamina of ethmoid sits the vomer. The rocking motion of the sphenoid and
the ethmoid produces movement in the vomer; and if the sphenoid dives forward, infl uenced the
Movement of the sphenoid sinus Vomer by the rostrum. In addition, the lateral sides are each frontal
bone by the big, square, frontosphenoidalen joints taken outwards. When inhaled they are taken
laterally, at the exhalation medially. Due to the expansion capability of the bone itself, the various sinus
wide also ethmoidales laterally during inhalation phase and medially in the exhalation phase. This selfreciprocating-forth movement of the sinus and frontal ethmoidal during inhalation and exhalation acts
like a pump for their normal drainage.
In view of all these operations, we start with the diagnosis and treatment of sinus problems do not

least since. To test the effects of the prosthesis, I asked him to use them again, while his involuntary
movable mechanism using
Palpation was monitored. There was an immediate reaction. His involuntary
Craniosacral mechanism and its fascial tissue went into a pattern of
Extension and internal rotation and the operation phase of the rhythmic involuntary flexion and
external rotation was not possible. All this happened within 30 to 60 seconds. He took the prosthesis
back out and you could feel the alternating involuntary movement ceased again, in a rhythmic health
cycle of 8 to 10 times per minute. I advised him daraufh in, no longer to use the prosthesis.
With supportive treatments that have been carried out irregularly over a period of several months
because the patient lived far away, he gradually became his grand mal epilepsy seizures and other
restrictions going. One wonders: What would have been the result of his health pattern,
if he continues to use this prosthesis? He himself answered this question with "death", and thus
physiologically correct. When you die, go the body mechanisms in extension and internal rotation.
This extreme and unusual case illustrates well as the less traumatic cases, which I shall describe, the
need to know and understand, which means health in the involuntary anatomically-physiological
mobility and function of the face. The face is the front portion of the craniosacral mechanism and is
prior to the neurocranium. For craniosacral mechanism include the linkages of the os sphenoid, the
Os occipital, temporal bone, the os frontal or Ossa frontalia, and the parietal bones that existing in a
vast round-fro movement mobility of reciprocal tension membrane and in a one-and-out of roles
existing motility of the central nervous system, the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid and the
involuntary movement of the sacrum between the ilia Ossa.
The face make up 15 bones: the ethmoid bone, two zygomatic bones, two
Ossa Maxillaria, two palatine bones, the vomer, two nasal bones, two Ossa lacrimalia, the two lower
conchae and the mandible. In the technical sense the Os ethmoid part of the skull base, but it will
mitbesprochen here. There is also the face 79 articulated connections, the neurocranium 43. The
mechanisms of involuntary mobility of the face - except controlled from the occiput and the temporal
bone mandible - controlled by the sphenoid. The sphenoid is a part of the main shaft in the base of
the skull, is on I-353
Considering the complexity of facial mechanisms, one realizes that there are many ways, such as
membranous joint dysfunctions in the posterior region may interfere with the inherent, fundamental
involuntary mobility of the face. I spoke with a dentist about this problem, and he mentioned the list
of procedures that can lead to traumatic results that an improperly executed balance of occlusion,
Massenverkronung of teeth, an improperly used rail for problems of Temporomandibulrgelenkes, and
traumatic extractions of teeth which have an unusual root system, to name but a few.
To as much as possible to prevent a trauma during the extraction of teeth is, he cuts apart the tooth
in order to draw any root in the direction of movement their own can. He avoids possible with
extraction of the whole tooth injury of mandible. With this discussion, I do not want to suggest,
however, that all prostheses, splints and similar disadvantageous are - most of them are beneficial to set
up specifi c needs.
In another type of a membranous joint dysfunction in the posterior region after tooth extraction
Os are temporal, sphenoid, maxillary and mandible Os en aff. On the side of dysfunction fi nds the
following: the temporal bone with its petrous in internal rotation; the Proc. pterygoideus the sphenoid
is directed upward and laterally. The maxillary bone is pulled down and the mandible is in their joints
in an incorrect position. The mechanics of such a dysfunction may take its origin in a dental chair with
V-shaped headrest. The occiput of the patient resting on the headrest, and it comes to a compression
on the

Partes mastoidea the temporal bone, directly in front of the anterior lambdoid suture. The occiput and
the temporal bone are thus relatively immobile - and the dentist now turns on the other side a lateral

Proc. pterygoideus on the dysfunction side upward and outward schwingt.59

The Eye

Practical application of the cranial concept in ordinary refractive and muscular disorders of the
eye
This text dated January 1958th
In the field of conventional refractive and muscular disorders of the eye, the net Cranial concept
publishing pictures tremendous opportunities. How far can go help in such cases, however, depends
firstly on the extent of organic limitation in the disease processes from and to the other of the
Knowledge and skills of the practitioner as a technician in the cranial concept. The more complete his
knowledge of the cranial mechanism, the more possibilities to a reversal of the pathological processes
he will see.
Disorders of the eye muscles
They are based mostly on neurological disorders in the structures that innervate the affected muscles.
Such disorders include, for example: paresis / paralysis of the extraocular muscles, paresis / paralysis
of eye movements associated or gaze palsy, disorders of convergence and divergence and paresis /
paralysis of the intrinsic eye muscles. Should do this, add one disturbances of the seventh cranial nerve
with restrictions on the eyelids, and defects of the fifth cranial nerve s (ie the shares, which subject the
orbital s).
Whole and partial motor paralysis of the extraocular muscles affect the possible movements of the
eye. Strabismus, so a failure of convergence and divergence, is a deviation of
Eye who can not control at will the patient. The visual axes are in this case each other in a relationship
that deviates from the norm. The various forms of strabismus are called Tropien, the prefix indicates
the respective direction, as in esotropia and exotropia.
Motor paralysis complete type (paralysis) or partial type (paresis) can the third, fourth or sixth cranial
nerve, or a combination of these three subject s. The clinical findings are different, depending on which
part of a nerve is particularly aff s. The pathological or Eini-357
we ust the Cranial concept to a number of potential pathological infl: compression of Synchondrosis
sphenobasilar, traumatic torsion or Sidebending-rotation pattern, vertical or lateral shear pattern,
compression of Partes lateral of the occiput with the condyles, the Partes petrous the temporal bone in
one of its various patterns and dental problems related traumatic patterns. Again, the tentorium and the
Sutherland fulcrum with the image. Recall that these cranial nerves slip through the cavernous sinus, by

folds of the dura mater, close to the posterior Proc.clinoidei. Therefore, disturbances in the train of
Dura may contribute to partial or complete paralysis of the nerves in this area.
The next area which we need to bear in mind is the cavernous sinus and the
Area of the optic chiasm. Here you can ligand potential primary dysfunctions in Os sphenoid and its
relations fi. The sphenoid is a major bone structures in terms of eye pathologies. It has hinged
connections with all the bones of the neurocranium and with five of the facial bones - the two zygomatic
bones, the two palatine bones and the vomer. Its dysfunction potentials are as diverse as its joint
labyrinth. The sphenoid is also in all the dysfunctions Synchondrosis sphenobasilar aff s.
With respect to the cavernous sinus have to remember that he is a part of the membrane system that
supports the venous drainage of the eye. Diseases affecting the membranes as encephalitis, meningitis,
and toxic states, can have serious e effects of interference in
Eye result. The Tonusqualitt the meningeal membranes has to be perfect, to ensure good venous
drainage of the skull and the eye sockets. The Tonusqualitt of the membranes after a encephalitis or
meningitis or toxic states can be compared with wet cardboard, or a plurality of layers of moist tissues.
It is dull, fl at and has lost its ability to reciprocal tension. This seriously en loss of tone in the reciprocal
Spanungsmembran it is almost impossible to achieve a solution of dysfunctions of the cranial structures.
If there is a correction, while the patient lies still, he just has to get up to leave the room
- And all its dysfunction pattern returns. There is a lot to work to restore normal Tonusqualitt before
trying to correct the bony cranial pattern. The membranes, which have fallen into such a state of disease
seem to be the fastest to recover, if some treatment appointments long the mechanics of the Liquor

sees possibilities of a free-floating, automatically changing Fulkrums, he is able to found the operational
procedures of the cranium and the Orbita and Ussen to infl.
The cranial nerves pass through on their way to the eye the superior orbital fissure of the sphenoid,
the Apex and the orbit itself. The eye muscles originate on Annulus of Zinn. This is oval in crosssection, closes the foramen and a portion of the medial side of the superior orbital fissure and consists
of two parts: from the lower band of Lockwood, which is attached to the lower root of Ala minor of
the os sphenoid and the origin of a part of Mm. Medial and lateral rectus and the entire rectus inferior
forms, and from the upper band of Lockwood, which is attached to the body of the sphenoid bone and
the origin of the other portion of the Mm. medial and lateral rectus and the entire superior rectus forms.
Emergence of the sphenoid:
Since the individual parts of the bone of the sphenoid play an important role in both partial as total
paralysis of the eye muscles as well as refractive errors, it is appropriate to the development of the
sphenoid again to consider and look at us, especially when the various growth centers of each become
a part mature en sphenoid are:
Until the eighth month in utero the os sphenoid from two different proportions of: a rear portion
or Postsphenoid to the pituitary fossa, the Alae majores and Proc. pterygoidei belong, and a front
portion or Praesphenoid, which includes the front part of the corpus and the Alae minores. It develops
from 14 centers: 8 for the Postsphenoid and 6 for the Praesphenoid.
In the rear part of the os sphenoid appears first the Ossifi cation centers for Alae majores.
Approximately in the eighth week in utero, they appear between the foramen rotundum and the
foramen ovale, and from them arise the laminae of the lateral Proc. pterygoidei. Shortly after the Ossifi
appear cation centers for the back part of the corpus, one on each side of the sella turcica. These two
combine approximately in the middle of the fetal life. The other four centers appear about four months.
The Ossifi ossify cation centers for the laminae of the medial Proc. pterygoidei from BindegeI-361

together with the overall pattern of the reciprocal tension membrane because there is the time of birth
no sutures in the skull. Therefore, one has to almost the end of the first year of life time to treat the
disturbed Alae of the sphenoid, before they become a part of the permanent structure of the sphenoid
bone and less likely to change.
The orbit is formed by seven bones: the sphenoid with its
Alae majores and minores, the ethmoid, the lacrimal bone, the maxilla, the zygomatic bone, the frontal
bone and the small Proc. orbital of the palatine bone. It is the availability and ease of normal articulated
relationship between these units, which leads to a normal function of the eye socket and contributes to
a normal function of the eyeball. If one of these units is disturbed, this can contribute to a pathology
of the eye socket or the eyeball.
Within the orbit there are 12 muscles: the six extraocular muscles and the ciliary muscle, the M. pupil
dilator, the M. pupillae sphincter, the orbicularis, the M. orbital and the levator palpebrae superioris.
To the six extraocular muscles is what the partial or complete paralysis of the eye muscles. Aside from
the inferior oblique, which originates from the medial side of the facies orbitalis the maxilla, have
opticum all originated in the area of the foramen. The superior oblique muscle passes from its origin at
the optic foramen by a trochlea, an arrangement such as a pulley, on the medial side of the facies of the
orbital frontal bone. All six muscles have their attachment to the sclera of the eyeball, near the front
pole. The oculomotor nerve supplies the following muscles: the inferior oblique, inferior rectus, medial
rectus, superior rectus, levator palpebrae and the sphincter of the pupil. The trochlear nerve supplies
the superior oblique, and the abducens nerve supplies the lateral rectus muscle.
Because of these anatomical features of "Krumme branch" pattern or traumatic impact on the Alae
minores of Os can sphenoidale the majority of the muscles of the eyeball affect the result of trauma of
the frontal bone, the capacity for action of the superior oblique hinder, and a trauma that meets the
maxilla may interfere with the inferior oblique. Rarely, however, trauma is limited to a bone unit and
usually its consequences on all bony components of the orbit transfer. Virtually every child who comes
with a seriously de plagiocephaly to us for diagnosis will have some kind of eye muscle paralysis or a
refraction problem.

the eye. When astigmatism of the incident light beam is not focused sharply on the retina because the

phenomena are not fixed - they do not continue year after year the same.
This fact that such refractive errors have a variable character, is an indication that you can change
this pattern. When fixed patterns, the potential for change would be very small. The eyeball with its
inherent Brechungsoberfl surfaces is a fl uid mass in an envelope of the sclera and the Krft en exposed
to his residence, the orbital surrounded.
Each pattern of refraction anomaly - whether myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism - can financings in
different classifi and descriptions are divided. Here are probably the axial myopia and hyperopia the
most interesting. When axial myopia is an extension of the eyeball. Could not related to an extension

eyeball, so that the rays of light before striking the retina s? The And could the cause of an axial

Yet different than the other patterns are the astigmatism. There are several Brechungsoberfl surfaces
in the eye, and the astigmatism is after the type of Brechungsoberfl che, at issue, named. The cornea,
the lens and the Glaskrperfl uid all play a role in these disorders. Again, the bulk liquid of the eye

has become a physiological unit that is in addition to the anatomical units, and this unit wants to
establish the only reciprocal voltage balance, she knows: the balance of the anatomical-physiological
pattern including the force.
It is therefore essential to understand and resolve the focus of this power, so that the normal
anatomical and physiological patterns of the patient's body have their full functional capacity again. The
practitioner can learn quite skillfully to read these force fields in the problem of the patient, and then

The osteopathic and Cranial concept offer more than just palliative relief. They challenge us, along
with his problem fully understand every patient who comes to the diagnosis and treatment to us.

Foreword
The silence of life, the second part of Dr. Rollin Becker's work, serves as a
companion volume to the previously published book Life in Motion. This mainly
includes texts that Dr. Becker has introduced entlichkeit in ff while stillness of life
mainly its more personal communication involves. Find here
You Emen an extensive selection of discussions on osteopathic theory. At one end
of this spectrum are thoughtful remarks on basic
Concepts that Dr. Becker advises his son during his early stages in practice, at the
other end Dr. Becker's experiments, incredible energy and spiritual aspects, as he
understood it, to put into words. He articulated some of these thoughts in public
public forums, but some expressed or put on paper only in personal conversations,
in private correspondence or personal considerations.
During one of my visits to Dr. Becker, after he had retired, we talked about the
things he had preferred not to mention ff entlich. I asked him specifically whether
he thought the time was right to release these ideas. He replied that he was in fact
this opinion, and gave me permission to do it.
The contributions in this book are from the period of 1949-1987. The
Material is compiled from a few exceptions in reverse chronological order - in the
belief that it for those who want to follow him, is best to begin where he thought his
ideas to the end.
However, his previous records include important approaches. To view the
Development of his ideas and help us to understand the later versions. They also
show its strong belief in the importance of constant observation and refl ektierens.
Also be represented concepts that he rejected later - some because he had come
to the conviction that they were wrong, others because he had the feeling not being
able to adequately reflect.
Accordingly, there is in this work terms that seldom appear in public accessible
via public works. Some, such as power source seem to have been dropped; others,
like the silence of partners, the private use were
reserved.
No thought in this book claims to be to represent the truth. Every thought should
be considered in its context. Some term e such silence and cause are at different
times with different meaning

created an exceptional way I could tread, and it inspired all of my work. A dedication
of Chetananda expresses these feelings:
"... Whose life's work we believe Dr. Rollin E. Becker, in highest honor. By
demonstrating the healing potential in the dynamic silence, he served deeply humanity. "

Limitations to. Even when it seemed as if other clinicians understand what he was
saying, he was being a few who were keen to pursue this work intensively for
themselves.
Dr. Becker's reluctance to express his ideas was infl uenced presumably by Dr.
Sutherland's teaching philosophy. Anne Wales DO, another student of Dr.
Sutherland, told Sutherland had only taught, which he believed everyone had as
much to hear it in the audience. His goal was to give each audience exactly the next
piece of information which she needed for her Vorank Ommen in this work. He
pointed knft owned facilities, but often, so that the interested student had to read
between the lines in the form of allusions. According to this strategy, it often
happened that Dr. Sutherland said one thing in public forums and public something
else in exchange, with its narrow students.
Similar caution was also Dr. Becker with the presentation of concepts, of which
he believed his students were not ready to understand it.
As I said already in motion in the implementation of Life:
"In Dr. Becker's hands the osteopathic focused on> Life in Motion <and silence ... So
he understood that shows life as a movement, and as he knew that the power of life in
silence lives ... All life springs from this force, whose nature is silence - a silence full
dynamic potential; a silence that to palpate you just may learn well how to palpate
movement. This property s of life, movement, Potency and silence are all resources that
are available to us in restoring the health. "
In most courses Dr. Becker put more emphasis on movement rather than silence,
because the concept of movement and the resources required for its usage skills
are easier to grasp. However, in his own thinking and in his private conversations,
he emphasized the silence. Another reason for Dr. Becker's emphasis on
movement in his teachings, was his belief that each new
Level of understanding is the knowledge that you have already acquired, built and
integrated therein. By, with einbezog the concept of silence, with all what it means,
he assessed what he had learned so far, not from. He never spoke of it to have a
learned skill behind him; Instead, he worked constantly working to refine their
application. His teachings started with the basics, because He has even started and
then perfecting the most gifted student. But as Dr. Sutherland he tried to still coming
knowledge and knft to indicate strength capabilities.

has to-one relationship with the divine, and is responsible for it. He believed that
nothing goes deeper and nothing is easier than this relationship. In his life and
practice of osteopathy targeted Dr. Becker afterwards, completely relying on his
"silent partner" or "Boss", as he called him. In a seminar in May 1979, he said, "I
love my work and am grateful that I can do it. Ultimately, it has nothing to do with
any other, but it is wonderful to have the opportunity to remind you about the contact
with the> silent partner "and over and over again to give him. This opportunity is in
all the cases that I see there and that's a good thing. "

Ideas, came in blind alleys, went back, if nothing happened, and tried out a different
direction. Gradually, after five years, I had pretty well figured out how I could get to
work. I was able to understand some of the things that told me the patient's body,
and to cooperate with it, to the point at which I taught something the patient's
problem. With this approach, I fi ng on the reason for the results in the individual
patient to understand. When I left Michigan, I treated those on fashion and so I'm
doing it even today.
I had been thinking for some time to relocate from Michigan to Texas, but when it
is finally revealed it took my final decision until the move just three weeks. That was
to say the least, a very rapid change; more than 200 patients came to me and said,
"We like what you're doing. We like the kind of treatments that make you now. It
works better than your fr heren treatments. We need less often come to you and
stay healthier between treatments. We want to continue with this kind of treatment.
Who can you recommend us? "Well, there was no one. And believe it or not, it was
the first time that someone told me that it gefi el what I was doing.
When I came to Texas, I made myself do not even bother to set up a general
medical practice. I have been practicing no "general medicine". I have no cooperation with hospitals. I prescribe anything. I have nothing to offer. I have only
one practice room with a plinth and I treat. In fact, I was never the primary doctor
and I still say: The patient is the primary doctor. Everything I do works, supportive
to the other applications that patients receive. If they go to whatever other
physicians because of carcinoma, ingrown toenails or, my treatment is to be
considered as supportive to these other treatments. I assist her body while taking
advantage of the resources for the specific
Are patterns of health available. That's the only goal in the treatment: The only
intention is to bring the full resources of the patient's physiological structures.
Osteopathic Principles
The fundamental principle that AT Still explained was that the body is a living,
breathing, dynamic organism that has all the resources and opportunities to do what
is necessary, if you see him in a physiological balance brinII-17
Simple? Let us look more closely: The words "... will perceive my full conviction
that the mind of God in nature ..." tell us that nature has the body already en erschaff.
You need you to worry about. He is here - and he has "... its planning ability - unless
plans are needed -" Think about it. If you are in a state of perfect health, you do not
need plans; everything exists and plans dive automatically. They are
perhaps necessary, but you do not have to erschaff s. They are there; the spirit of
nature has already en erschaff this organism.
Then saith Dr. Still from Erschaff s "self-organizing laws without pattern". A
healthy state is a state with no pattern. If you have a pattern, you have a dysfunction,
a disease or a problem. If you have no problem, you have no pattern. Simple? This
is true for all forms being busy, in small or large scale. Everything is equipped for
his task with its own battery, its own en Krft, Sft s and everything else. Everything

is included. There is only the question of whether you can learn as a dentist
craftsmanship. Not those of the manipulation, but the artistry of living palpation
which dips literally and works with existing. That's all he's trying to say. Simple?
Here's another quote from AT Still. He says the same thing again:
"Someone once said, 'Life is the quiet force sent forward by the deity to make all
nature alive <Let us accept this and act as if it were the truth.. Life is those sent by
the mind of the universe force that moves the whole of nature. Let us use all the
energies on keeping this vitality in balance by keeping the house of life from the
foundation to the dome in good shape. "3
Dr. Still was aware of the craniosacral mechanism - his signature s show it - but he
did not tell him. Dr. William Garner Sutherland set out to work it out. In other words,
Dr. Sutherland completed the anatomy and physiology of the head and sacrum in
their interaction with the rest of the body. He never distinguished his work from Dr.
Stills work. For him, his
3 AT Still: The great Still Compendium. 2. A., Volume III: The Philosophy and
Mechanical Principles of Osteopathy, JOLANDOS, 2005, pp III-60th
II-19
for that part of the nervous system is of essential importance to exchange freely
with its surroundings. However, there is no single component that would be more
important than another.
Dr. Sutherland was a firm believer in the fact that the cerebrospinal fluid with
respect
Quality, the likely highest known element in the human body sei.4 He described a
relationship between the "breath of life" and the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid
cerebrospinalis.5 We already said that the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid as
the tides of the ocean - not the waves but the
Tides. Thus tides may arise, there must be a flood, enter a pause resting point, a
low tide, a pause resting point, a flood and so on. At the fulcrum point, ie at the point
where the tides change direction, you fi nd also the point at which the breath of life
itself communicates with the cerebrospinal fluid. He
this is then converted to lower, the body needs energy.
He is similar to the electric current that is fed into 44,000-volt lines in a city and
then downshifted to 110 volts, so that we can use it. It is similar with the breath of
life, which comes with full potency in the cerebrospinal fluid Cerebrospinal. So Dr.
Sutherland is concept and I will not disagree with him. I agree with him. I agree
with him, not because I agree with the words, but because I accept the experience
related.
When we work with the cerebrospinal fluid Cerebrospinal, we can change its
balance. We can change its fluctuation pattern. There are ways in which we can
literally bring to a halt the Liqour cerebrospinalis.

Note. D. Ed .: In the expression "liquor as the highest known
element" st SS one t in the font en AT Stills. Already in the English version
of his essay O ver the central nervous system fi nds itself at the Swedish
polymath Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) this sentence. Swedenborg in
turn refers here especially to the famous Italian anatomist Giovanni Morgagni
hmten (1682-1771). To what extent and Sutherland Still access to
Swedenborg 's had English versions of his treatises O ver the central nervous
system, Th e Brain or Th e cerebrum, is currently the subject of historical
research. But is Off Obviously Swedenborg one of the spiritual V ter this f
o r osteopathy so central dictum.

In Some Thoughts Dr. Sutherland said: "The human brain is a motor.
The breath of life is a spark for the engine - something that is not material
Lich, and we can not see, "[Sutherland, WG & A: The large e Sutherland
Compendium.. Volume II: Some thoughts JOLANDOS, 2004, pp II-140]. And
again: "And the Lord God formed man of dust of the ground and blew the
breath of life into his nostrils. And man became a living soul (Genesis 2; 7).
"[Ditto: S. II-137].
II-21
I do not complain that it took months - it took me five years Dr. Stills defi nition of
osteopathy in a conscious, palpation usable experience to translate in the
treatments. Something to read or hear is good, but it takes a long time until our
sensory impulses ends herausfi what was said. The sense of touch is very stupid.
The nature of the disease
Question: How is it that the body gets out of balance, thus enabling the development
of the disease?
It would take too long to talk about it, but I can say the following to: Ten days ago
I was infected with a baby who came to me with a cold. This was a child with cerebral
palsy, which happened to have a cold, and I was, unfortunately, a bit tired and had
infected me. If your own resources are somewhat weakened, is the door to all sorts
geff net. At the same time you also possesses all the necessary resources in order
to cope. Disease is a chemical process that occurs due to vibrations of bacteria or
viruses or other things, it is simple chemistry. Those who are studying homeopathy
or acupuncture, would say the same thing.
If you have an illness that brings the system to the point where it can no longer
remember how it should repair itself, it will form a pattern. Take for example a
chronic case of malaria, tuberculosis or typhoid. Today, these diseases do not occur
more often, but in the days before there were antibiotics, I saw in the practice that
the body gradually regenerated as well as he could the. However, as a result the
person worked with an embossing by this disease. This caused by the disease in
their system, chronically debilitated state was involved in everything they did. In a
way she had always been a bit of malaria, she was always there.

With each subsequent process, no matter what happened, there was a program
that reported on any cell in the body: "You have to involve myself with, I'll sit in the
neck, and I do not go down," The nervous system was the pattern written..
A fine example of this type of embossing by trauma happened when a friend of
mine. He was working on a skylight, broke the ladder and he fi el down, literally
pushing his tibia upwards and smashed Daii-23
Problems tends to adapt and then says, "If I have to live with it, then it's just so" you
find on the other hand, by palpation or by other skills, ways to bring the system to
wake up and look behind this adaptation. , there is also something that says. "So I
am in reality" When you awaken, it deletes the other.
I understand this thing with the disease patterns - that is, the type and
How the body works in relation to any disease pattern - so that the body is so
arranged in certain respects. It is not merely a pattern that runs Auchter and settles
on the already existing, the body puts itself in rather a new equilibrium. By dealing
with the disease, as well as he can, the body has to continue with the general
process of life to deal with. Simply by the fact that the body relate to the disease
and to deal her me he adds them automatically into the pattern of its own turnover.
Question: So then the whole body is also involved in a local disease process?
That's true. Everything is fully involved throughout.
We give names like diseases Pfeiff er'sches Drsenfi boar, chicken pox, mumps
or measles, because we have learned over the centuries, these symptoms so
complex kidney to defi. Each of these things contributes to a factor. A particular
virus produces a certain type of music. Mumps music is different from measles
music and music other than measles chickenpox music, but in any case there is a
clinical entity, which plays a melody. When the body brings this pattern in his life and he brings it in his entire life - and could handle the effi cient way with this
particular pattern, then would he easily play the melody. He would put the needle
on the disk and then play the entire melody. And if he had played the entire melody,
the plate would be untouched. You could start from anew, no pattern would be more
available.
In other words, the body would take the pathogen ideally and to deal with them.
He would go through the whole process of inflammation, swollen lymph nodes, etc.
and would have corrected all the problems at the end. If you had then gone through
the disease, you'd be just as well as in front of your contact with the pathogen. It
would expire when you effi ciently handle it and the battle off en could be held.
General II-25
sonal opinion, they really are they in such cases but not. I believe they adapt to
more.
Q. weaknesses they did not, because he could not go through a strengthening
process the body?
That I can not answer. But I do not think that they then are the same people who
they might have been, if they had had the opportunity to stage an off enes combat

with the enemy and overcome everything. If they can fight off s, they were healthier
than if they had chosen the path to antibiotics.
Q. So you do not see the work of antibiotics as a supplement to what you're doing?
Well, I'm sure they are complementary. I have the distinct feeling that the
Treatment, which I use, the antibiotics help to behave as they should. I'm sure the
treatment encourages the entire resources of the body and the antibiotics to do their
thing. My patients utilize a large
Range of resources to support themselves. I no longer practiced
General medicine. I Carry easily with any problem that shows the patient to me,
my thing and then as it continues in another medical care,
if it is really necessary.
I want one thing clear: As far as I am concerned, is any form of treatment that
achieves a clinical result, legitimate. There is no treatment that is a priority. I do not
care whether or medicine, surgery, psychology
Whatever is spoken. A patient is a patient is a patient. And which
Whatever techniques contribute to its recovery, the use should you.
If you use medicine, which is a supportive measure, so it goes to the patient better.
If you use psychology, which is a supportive treatment, so it is the patient better. If
you're using surgery, which is a supportive maneuver, so it goes to the patient better.
Question: Some people see the disease as a lesson or something positive.
I do not believe. I'm not proud to get a cold.
This is not a lesson. I have sat at the right place, at the right time, with the right
inner environment and suddenly I have a stranger in my middle. Good Job.

an outdoor event. Not until the following week, however, so a week later, returned
to their normal vitality. From this I learned that pneumonia is a disease of eight days
duration. During this time my daughter went through the entire disease process,
including red and gray stages of hepatization. However, they did so at the highest
effi ciency level and was within eight days by order.
The neighbors of course did not believe that she had to recover as quickly from
pneumonia can. They thought I was a charlatan, who had not recognized the
problem correctly. But it shows how the created by nature Energiefl USS can do the
things that he is supposed to do. It is a fine example of the work that could do the

The role of the practitioner
IF YOU want to become an osteopath, you have to give up your ego. If you are
creating st that, you're no longer a doctor. No patient comes to me in my office to
see the doctor. I am not a doctor and I'm not a teacher. The patient is the doctor
and the teacher. In fact, not even the patient, the patient. The mechanism, which
he leaves me in practice, so I am working, is the teacher and the doctor. If I insist
to be the doctor and teacher, I can only guess what is needed. When I listen to the

patient, the words, emotions, thoughts and the ego, I do not get the true picture. I
have to look behind and see what drives them. Then even disappear.
Still want the thing they call problem, have attention. So take care of this. But do
it by listening to him. I have no ego; it's not my treatment. I do not give treatments.
The faster we can learn to go out of the way, the better. This is true not only in
medicine, but also to all other areas. If you're an engineer and build a bridge, will
you have to have an idea of how you want to do it, but it's the bridge itself that
counts. If you can step aside in a treatment, then the, what are you working to
develop rather to what it should be as if you are trying to give instructions.
For all we assume that you literally as a living being, the
Sharing experience of other living beings. I can be a teacher for this

ment Bank. I slide my hands under his back, sit there and try to feel what is
happening. I close my eyes and feel immediately like I was able to pass through
him to feel, and my sensations all around is ends that I go up reach to the ceiling. It
feels so real that I close my eyes to check ff ne and wonder, "What's going on
here," Everything looks normal, I close my eyes again and now we go back up to
the ceiling?. This time, I say, "Okay, I guess I let myself an out. I just stick to it. "We
remain about ten minutes up there, then something happens and it feels like when
hovered things back in my hands, until only one is left lying on the treatment table.
He feels now
like himself, and has just a broken wrist.
Can you analyze what has happened? It's simple physics, nothing complicated.
If a bucket full of water would have been in the passenger seat next to the man who
bounced his car on the other car, where this water would have gone? Direct towards
the point of impact. So what did the water in the man's body at that time?His entire
liquid mechanism aimed towards the front of the vehicle, the point of impact. When
I then put my hands twenty-four hours among patients every gram of fluid and the
energy went into it directly on the ceiling to the point of impact against. She went to
a Fulkrumpunkt, at the end of Tide. It was a fluid mechanism that was put forth in a
car accident there.
The liquid mechanism went out there and stayed there, because he was still driven
by a forward thrust. I guess you could call it a kind
"Floating" injury designate. A floating energy field was created. Why?I do not know
- it was just like that. The liquid mechanism and the energy field were postponed
and then I found a Fulkrumpunkt under the patient. I am a living body and I put a
pair of hands with him and offered to order a fulcrum. He expressed this state of
only when I put my hands under him. As soon as I as a living body, but my hands
put, there was a focus, could arise from the energy of this floating.
During the treatment, therefore, solved this floating power and stayed up there
until what was necessary for their neutralization, she had wiped out, and then they
came back. Now the energy field was neutral. My Fulkrumpunkt was neutral before
I anfi ng, and my Fulkrumpunkt was then neutral. My
Fulcrum is always alive - it is a living fulcrum - and it was Desii-31

Animal T the patient still with his own boss. They discuss, as they walk out the door
and even all the way home.
Q: Would you treat the whole body and analyze, no matter what the problem is?
I cover only the demand that exists on this special day. I would not piss around in
each treatment in all areas, from one end to another. No.I only work on what needs
to be addressed. This approach works,
because you even if you're only nger around the small Ringfi, but work on the whole
body. While I'm working, I tune to everything that belongs to them, no matter where
I work.
You have to break away from the idea that the body is the problem. Forget
Body - it is only the luggage, came in with someone and he has left on the table.
This is because only the ego. Therefore, everyone wants to be healthy. That's why
people do gymnastics. That's great.But he's still just a bag full impact of what
happens to all that responded. This Th ema made some time worries me. Why do I
care about as a practitioner to a bunch of ego trips? Unfortunately, the world is so a bunch of ego trips. Therefore, someone has to take care of them and why not on
effi cient way?
When I work with the ego trip-body, only to amuse him and to bring him into a
state of so-called physiological health, that's very interesting. That's why people
come to me. But I can also pass through this particular pattern of the body, not only
in order also to bring health to fi nd, but the indwelling Spirit to fi nd, and to give him
a little shot in the arm. Then the patient would probably take the hint and arouse his
own inner capacity for human spiritual development. I never mentioned the word
"spiritual" towards them and had it not mentioned in front of other groups. I've
learned that you should not use the word because it has connotations. But I am,
when I'm working with my patients, only interested to awaken the deepest level of
your entire consciousness, whatever you want to call it. In this process I lure out
something that is buried deep, wherever they have buried it. I do not know where
they have buried it, I ask not once after that and it does not bother me. Anyway I
play it. Meanwhile, I am looking for more surface chlich after layer II-33
I achieve a different result. You can have different levels of results, depending on
the approach you choose a dentist.
We are programmed to think a problem-oriented, and that's the only thing we think
- we forget to go through them to the next layer. You can you focus on removing
dysfunction undergoing hip s, but could you also to the rest of the leg attune. That
is a sensible investment as the first approach. How about trying to forget the
problem? Where is the true health who wants to be here? Let us feel like it again
here hindurchfl ows, and then let us connect with an even greater source build. What
I'm trying to say that we stimulate from the lowest level to the highest - we stimulate
the whole chain. We treat not only the body. If you are aware of when you work
which, you treat the foundation to the dome.
The boss does the job. The practitioner attunes his own boss and the therapist
attunes to the boss of the patient. This is not a mechanical treatment.

Question: I was wondering if it is necessary or helpful, that the patient is trying to


consciously perceive this process of change?
No, it is not necessary. This mechanism is more than self-sufficient; he creates
literally itself. things that are in constant motion, do not require attention. No, it is not
necessary during the treatment.
However, if you have a patient who shows affinity to an Affi, he can easily treat
yourself. Every time he goes to bed at night, he can tune into his boss and say softly:
" Listen, why do not some of this garbage beseitigst and allow me some of the good
stuff from the
Bring out deep? "request to eliminate the bad Krams, so the good stuff can emerge.
Question: Will the progress that makes a patient, maintained?
II-35
I have many patients in whom I wish ardently that they were someone else will fi nd
that you supplied because our chemistry is not right. They go against the grain. They
annoy me. I have no sympathy for them. But I'm the only one in Dallas, which offers
this type of treatment, so I did not have much choice. I can nowhere hinschicken
different. Patients, however, have to be total freedom, where they are. With all pros
and cons, we tend to be doctors to the patients for whom we will be responsible to
bind. Sometimes I wish the person who is responsible for the distribution of difficult
patients, would pick another doctor who cares about them.
Patients do not always react the way I would like it, but that is not my responsibility.
I am responsible for the I-ness that makes them individuals. I am not the "I owe"
accountability that characterizes them as ego. I am the "I" accountable, that makes
them what they are. I am not responsible for the "I" that their Occupation, their
gender, their religion, their skin color or anything else constitutes its name. I can
work with the "I", as well as I can on a particular day, while the "I" at whatever level
works and doing his thing. There will obey my responsibility - there is the limit.
In everything is initiated, the "I" continues the patient. It has been liberated, free,
and I can give this case mentally. I do not take cases mentally home. Sometimes a
patient comes to me in the morning and is very ill. He thinks he should come again
in the afternoon. But if I have my inner "I" and his inner "I" listened and achieved
something which so feels like it would work, I have to make me not worry about him.
I tell him that I want to see him the next regularly fixed appointment. Something tells
me that I can banish him from my thoughts. I do not go home and worry about him.
Each tissue has its own built-in time schedule for healing. Torn muscle or a broken
bone requires 12 weeks to heal. In traumatic conditions fi healing in connection with
a friend instead of and in accordance with the anatomical and physiological nature
of the tissue. It is a living process. If I accept it, that these are the basic rules, and
Daii-37
is that his own work is done. I can not bring himself to do something of which I think
you should do it, or to go where I think you should go up. I can not force you, even
if I lock you up and would force-feed for the rest of your life - nothing would happen.

I'm not worried about whether a patient like me or not. If they do not like me, they
can fi nd someone they like, and there are better faster than if they would hang out
with me. I have several times patients returned their money. They come after three
to four sessions and say, " I think you do not work, and I do not come on. "They have
so much pent-up frustration. My response is: " How many times you were here, Mr.
Schmidt? "He says," That was the fourth treatment. "And then I say:" All right, here's
a check for the other three events, today it costs you nothing and I want them to
another practitioner looking. "They usually leave fl uchend and snarling the practice,
but they can not complain. And log always six weeks or six months later and come
back on. I have had some of these patients, and in the end they were the nicest
patients who you can imagine.
In the case where a patient is seriously disturbed by my treatment approach feels
- that happens once in three years - I do not hesitate to encourage him to seek
another doctor. I give him his money back.
The potential to achieve results
I once treated a woman for 18 months and it turned out that I had the situation
misdiagnosed her and anyway not really could have helped. It had now accumulated
a really big bill for them.
I said to her husband: " I'm sorry, I was all the time on the wrong track. There is
nothing I could have done, even if I had known it. So let me write a check for a half
years of work. "He replied," No, it was for them but at least a bit better tolerable.
"She had a very serious form of tic douloureux, the organic origin was and to any
form of could appeal to functional treatment. There was no MgII-39
Problem on again. The state of his spinal cord began to deteriorate. It had partially
changed sclerotic. Therefore, he came back to me, has now regained 80% of its
function and is doing very well. In its issue there were many irreversible proportions,
yet he has, 30 years later, regenerated - a pretty good result. I had thought that he
could at best get his condition and prevent deterioration. But surprisingly, 80% of its
function were restored. However, it requires a treatment per month to keep its
acquired state, because the exhausted e spinal cord has lost its insulation layer and
tends to lose its power. The cellular structure can not hold the voltage.
You will not always achieve the results that you want. I am with all the results including the dramatic "cures" that I have achieved in my patients - have never been
satisfied. At least you will remain but the satisfaction of knowing that the patient is
perhaps the doors for more life and movement - has geff net - this life in motion.
The Silent Partner
Question: Can you talk about what you call the "silent partner"?
Now when I talk about it, I miss the goal. One can only say that the pure "I" that
represents me is my silent partner. It is the same stillness partner, as you have it,
the same silence which is a partner in this room, and the same silence partner who
belongs to the insect that I saw pass by here. It is always the same silence partners
and to accept him and myself to him, has become a conscious experience. The

Silent Partner does not have any human form, he is himself. You have to perceive
it consciously or know about him, but in the second in which you have found
something that you can put your mental, intellectual finger, he has slipped away from
you. Yet it is something that exists.
One can call the breastfeeding partner intentionally or contact him on a one-toone basis. How and why it works, I do not know, and if I did, then it would not be
that. It is easier to demonstrate it than to talk about it. At that moment I set up a
contact with my partner and breastfeeding while I hold him in my mind, I take contact
with your on. And now I'll stop. If I have a contact to your breastfeeding II-41
The Silent Partner is - and that's all there is to it. If you want to know how to use it,
so I gave you the simplest answer. And when I contact my partner breast-feeding, I
have as little idea of what I step into connection, as if I would get in touch with the
man in the moon. If I knew it, he would not be a silent partner. So I would ects make
it a part of the same restricted world of Eff to the everything else heard we can reach
with our thoughts. I contact him and give myself to him - as simple as that, if you
make it complicated, you're dead. - Nothing happened. That's all there is to it. That's
what AT Still was talking about when he said: "the mind of God in nature . " He then
refers.
Question: It seems so as if a part of the work to the public areas to NEN and a
dedication to God?
Actually, it focuses on what or whom you surrender now. Your
Silent partner is a fulcrum point; he is absolutely silent. There is no energy partners
in moving silently, no. Actually, he is the source of energy, the state comes from the
energy. He is not moving energy, it is pure potency. He is omnipotent. There is no
movement and is still all move. It is just simple and you are giving yourself to him
towards. Feel the silence that has developed in this area. It's the same silence. Can
you feel it? It's the same silence and you can feel it, but it's nothing, you're working
on. If you work at it, you missed it. It is a vibrant silence that can live up to our
conscious attention. This conscious perception fi nds through our large and not held
by our small mind. Awareness is the acceptance of something.
This may sound esoteric, but is nevertheless a tangible experience. Sometimes
when I see patients in my practice, you can silence in the
Cut space with a knife and build an igloo from - so quiet it is. How does this happen?
I have no idea, and who cares? It is there to meet a need for something that happens
in this particular people. Where does it come from and where it goes, is not a
concern. It is a type of life, yes, a kind of life. So that's it. Make it not complicated.
You can contact and contact with breastfeeding partners by someone else and
indulge in the at this moment with your partner breast-feeding. Anyone can do that;
we all have the same resources.
II-43
use it. But how many people do literally the effort and use it? There are very few
people who are trying to turn it into a continuous process of devotion. You need to
practice and experience. It took those people years and even more years to create
some of these things.

They did not come overnight so.


It is important to remember that it is the process of coincidence is at every moment
that matters. The achievement and the result, which is obtained from this is not the
essence. It's about conformity, not achievement. Beyond the coincidence is anything
that a friend stattfi, a matter of expression; it's manifestation. Here it goes again to
"Eff ects" and when you look at this as achievement, you have involved yourself and
are again in a state of selfishness.
Joel Goldsmith, author of Th e Mystical I , working in his text out a very important
point. He says if you can live constantly in that consciousness actually, in complete
surrender, you gain automatically a certain degree of peace and contentment. You
are doing and simply solves the problems about you excited would you sooner.
If I achieve a cure in a difficult case, I prefer absolutely no
Satisfaction from. I empfi hands no satisfaction for me, when I see how people on
the treatment that I give them six months to appeal and was suddenly wiped out an
experience of 20 years and they are again in a state of health. Therein lies for me
any reward or fulfillment - not the least bit. The people might say: " Is not that
wonderful? Look at what you've done for Mr. Schmidt. He can play golf and earn
millions of dollars and before he was whole six months bedridden. Are you not a
deep Zufr iedenheit? "No, none at all. I do not care. It gives me no satisfaction, none
at all. You think I'm joking. However, it was but from the very beginning in Mr.
Schmidt's responsibility and what about the other five difficult cases that I have in
my practice? Why they do not react in the same way? I can not use the same
answers for them. So I still have a responsibility herauszufi ends, as I surrender
myself, so this creative thing for the next people can be transmuted.
In addition, Mr. Schmidt were special circumstances and everything else, which
led to the emergence of its difficulties, its individual problems and had nothing to do
with my care. I was the lever, the fulcrum, a still point at random. And a still point
has no name, it has no ego, he has nothing.
II-45
Goals
You asked me what the goal is. You can not really consider as something that needs
to be searched. People have a tendency to believe in their spiritual work " . If I live
right, I get a mansion over there on the sunny side of heaven "It is an object - if I do
the things I should do, something good will happen. Well, who determines the goals?
If I could attune to my breastfeeding partners, presence practicing and actually all
that would be what I talked all the years of my life - if I could so reach a state of
attunement - then would go on my creative energy and further plead their cause. If
no ego trips are involved, people respond in whatever way to my work and
something happens. If I have done this work, should I use the time clock and say, "
Now I have a goal "? The objectives must be resolved with everything else.
Of course, you will experience some sort of trstlichem feeling. You experience
the ability to give yourself to your work, to give yourself to the perfect replacement
by you share something in which everything happens, and you have not even call it.
There is no idea of " I Befr iedigung it pulled. I am ieden zufr because this happened.
There is peace in my world, because ... "This way of thinking gives no sense to me.
What are you doing this? How long will be peace? The next job requires more work.

It is a state of continuous balanced exchange. If you could actually do, would not
have time for anything else than to do alone what you are doing, without thinking
about the concept of "comforting feeling."
We need to start all something we can hold on to. There is a
Structure for the treatment. At the end there is nothing but what we can really hold
us. There is a goal, but it is a goal in which it is not important whether it is achieved
or not.
The application of medicine is an experience that generates humility. You'll
humble when you have a case and you just do not get stuck. So many patients have
already made their rounds, have been in a number of clinics and stumble now in
your practice and say, " I have been told I should visit it. Mrs. So-and told them how
much they have helped her. "And then you realize what opposite stand there for a
monster you.
Many patients come into practice with problems and no one knows what is really
going on. Some patients exaggerate their problems and others understate II-47
The same rules apply in all other areas. I had an engineer for friend who IGTE
beschft 30 engineers in its organization. He suffered a heart attack and I went to
his home to treat him. As he thought about his business, fi el him that he had three
outstanding engineers. He could drop dead and his business would so well
continued to run as usual. Then there was a pile of engineers at the center, which
were good. And below it always seemed to be three who were fit for nothing. The
point is: If you join the game and want to belong to the top 10%, you need to use
your entire abilities to function, it simply needs more to it to be created en. And to
me it does not matter what it is for a game.
As physicians, we spend four years in order to acquire a piece of paper, which
then hangs on the wall and looks beautiful. Then we have the freedom to live out
our selfishness and to earn a million Dollar: " This is Dr. Brown in his new, fast car.
"Very satisfying? That bores me - I do not care anything at all. I have used the
medical training and this piece of paper as a license in order to practice the way I
want it.
The useful due to the fact that you're a doctor or another respected
Profession belongs, consists only in the ability to work. More is not.
I have here an amusing case study, through which it is worthwhile to talk, because
it shows how silly it is to be a physician. When I practiced in Michigan, a young man
came to me in the practice with a bilateral, strong fi brosierenden Psoasitis. He could
not sit up and had heft owned pain. I had to practically carry him to treat bank and
then stuck out his knee in the air.
That was at the time when I was working harder; I was not working at the time on
the
Art as I do today. I've been working on this guy, Joe, two and a half months three
times a week and at the end of this period he saw when he came into practice and
lay down, just like before. He told me that he had to leave the city, so we parted. I
was glad to be rid of him, I was fed up with him.
A little later came a new patient with arthritis and a dozen other complaints to me.
He reported, Joe had sent him to me and told him I would take him to a treatment in
order. A few months later came another guy and he had everything you could think

of, and only wanted to stay for a week in the city, but that was okay, because Joe
had told him that he would be cured after treatment. Finally, a year later, Joe came
in and he was a big, bold flav strength guy and straight. He said:
II-49
If you achieve poor results, it may be that you are not penetrated to some of the
more important centers or the stupidity of patients means that they make your
treatment destroyed when they go home. That happens all the time, almost
routinely. But that's not your problem. You do not eat properly, it is their weekend
when they organize a drinking session, they argue again with her husband or their
wife, and so on. So they give their resources and waste them in some way, then
come back and aff ene area is messed up again, though not quite as bad as before,
despite what they have done or not done.
Teaching
You know that it is very difficult, this way of working to teach someone. A therapist
might come in and say, " Dr. Becker, I want to study with you until I begin to
understand what's going on. "The first, however, what should I do with such a
person, is - although they rarely do what I advise you - to tell you: " The first person
who has to make a difference, you are. . Forget everything you have learned so far
in your life , "And I tell them:
" I have no answers here. You will not learn anything here, but when you're done,
you will be shown a direction in which you can go, and you will even have ends
herausfi the hard way. But you have to give up everything - and be an unknown
quantity, if you approach the treatment bench to herauszufi ends there - your
identity, your> doctor <. "
But as I said: There is rarely a medical student who is willing to do that. At the end
I fight with their personalities, their egos. Every time I let her create her hands to a
patient with whom I worked, I could feel like they were trying hineinzuprojizieren their
power in the situation. They tried something mitzubekommen of what was going on.
Interestingly, the patients were treated there. The patient said that - they felt
overweight.
If you, umgehst with the highest known energy that exists, they will thereby have
no one in what she is doing, interferes. They responded when someone observed
intellectually-analytically. I have given up trying to let students create their hands as
long as I cover.
I do not allow it, that the doctor student talks to me while I treat a patient. If you
want to know something about these patients, Question II-51
to the treatment benches practice virtually allow. Five minutes before he was to
begin, I was told that he would not come. I now had an hour that had to be filled with
something, because you're not going to one of our conferences, to laze around. Our
group is probably one of the most motivated groups in the United States. If the
conference visit, they work hard. Indeed, it is at the end of the day difficult to chase
them out of the conference room - so much so that they are beschft IGT to treat
each other.

I racked my brains about how I should fill the hour, and decided to let them perform
a physical examination without their usual routine of exercise tests. I urged the hlft
e of them to lie down, and said to the other hlft e " Begins at the head, lay your
hands on your head, then moves down to the neck, then the theory ORAX, both
arms going along, further down to the abdomen and the pelvis to the feet. Take of
30 minutes and does not do anything. Just sit there and feel what you can feel it. "I
said nothing about it, from where they should feel or what they should feel. I merely
said, " Feel what you can. Feel what makes the physiological movement of the
patient. "They'd have 30 minutes for it and then they should change partners.
I spent the hour trying to walk around the room and say, " Stop it! I did not test the
movement, but the movement feels. "I braked just repeatedly, so that they sit simply
and only had to observe. It was a sight for sore eyes: Here were 50 osteopaths with
full practices, used to being on the move, which is now trying for 30 minutes to sit
quietly. The interesting thing about this simple exercise was that she literally got in
the process, to feel with their own energy. They became involved. They practiced
Contributors quantum mechanics. She awoke all the energies of the patient as well
as their own. In the space as much energy rose to that you can make it bricks and
build a house could have. It was amazing.
At least 25 of them came to me later to say that this is the best
Would have been the treatment that they had ever received. It's interesting. It was
a diagnostic exercise, but all were treated. The other interesting fact was that she
had not the least bit aroused curiosity among them to learn how they could work
from home so. They were ready to make the experience, but they were not
interested in taking responsibility for the development of such a thing. And yet it was
a very clear demonstration of PotenII-53
What's that? Much more than on what we call problems, I make sure that things do
what they should do. I do not try to solve your problems; I'm not interested in you
blow your nose. I want to get under the rubble and the proportion that is healthy,
say, " . Look, you're supposed to do the work up here "
In other words, I'm treating to restore health; I'm not trying to resolve the issue. By
I treat so ff I ne doors for the body, so that he can try to deal with its vibrant Krft s
the way he wants.
Question: Why can he not without your help? He can do
it.
Question: But why the body does not do it then? You said one reason that the body
is not good or is fully recovered, that there are other accumulative factors that attract
the attention of the body to be. What are you doing with the other factors? Are you
following your treatment there?
That's true. But after the treatment they are of a healthier mechanism better
resolved than that of who has tried it before, this was not particularly successful.
Question: What about traumas compared to disease? Is there a difference in your
approach depending on whether it is a mechanical condition or a disease?

No.You're trying to separate the mechanical problems of the problems caused by


the disease, but they can not be separated. If the tissue under tension -. For
example, if a leg has a dysfunction of the internal rotation - are all fascias and
everything else in a state of reduced defense. When something penetrates the skin,
fascia and lymph draining the area would not be as good as they should. It is a local
area of potential infection. But once everything back the way it should be, and
everything works well, the leg everything is fed what it needs, and everything should
be drained, is flushed. It is now in a healthy condition. As Dr. Still to say pfl EGTE,
everything moves from the foundation to the dome freely in his pattern. Each part of
the body works as it should, and makes physiologically the things he needed to deal
with all that II-55
exercise, which then says that he can not take it anymore. If you can take out all of
the shock from the connective tissue with a treatment before surgery,
is likely to be much more successful and much quicker convalescence of
intervention. Postoperatively, it is the same thing: You have the shock of surgery
wash out afterwards from the patient.
During an operation, it is helpful if it is performed by a skilled surgeon who goes
in, skillful work is done and goes out again. There are even individuals who are
willing to say a prayer before you start cutting, although they are criticized for. Some
time ago there was in the Medical World News , an image of a surgeon who talked
seriously to a patient, and they quoted him, he had said that medicine now realize
that it pays, from time to time call for the Boss. Nine months later appeared in this
newspaper still letters to the editor in which readers complained that this was
probably the ignorance stem lichste that you've ever heard. I found, however, it was
high time that someone admitted time to do it.
Question: What happens to your body when you've changed it surgically? He
adapts. Surgery is an organized trauma.
Rules for treating
If you work with the inherent Krft s body, you need to set up a whole new set of
rules. In an ordinary practice you see a reddened neck, decide that the patient needs
penicillin, and verordnest him. This is an external view of the event. You can take a
patient with a Psoasitis but also connect to a machine and put the area under
galvanic current to stimulate him, and then put the patient for 15 minutes in a hot
tub. These are mechanical devices that you serve, and that's fine. They work as
they are supposed to work. But you could on the other hand also place your hands
on these patients and offer a focal point through which the local tissue changes can
be sorted out. In the case of these other treatment modalities Psoasitis working to
arbitrarily controlled muscles that cramp and complains. Instead, you have the
possibility to contact the involuntary system that is working to flush these
consolidated area ten times per minute.

"Driving" of treatment results

You can try to Ussen influenced food the body with galvanic current, and it will
generate Eff ect, but these mechanical devices make something from the outside. If
you do not observe the body exactly, you will not know what they Eff ect have.
Usually the therapist places the patient on a machine that goes away and comes
back 15 minutes later to the patient
to pick up from the machine. Perhaps the diseased tissue feels for a few minutes
right at home. Then suddenly you're asking of the diseased tissue to react in a way
that is not possible for him and fatigued it. Would you have your hands on the patient,
you would know that.
I used to use in my practice a diathermy machine, because I had the idea to warm
a patient while I treated the other. One day, however, I was finally so clever and
have put my hands on the fabric to see what happens. The first patient I checked e,
came after three minutes a signal from the fabric: " Hey, this feels pretty good. "Five
minutes later, this signal turned off and pressure build up. I had the patient 15
minutes there. So I gave him five minutes of treatment and ten minutes trauma. The
next patient, I administered diathermy got two minutes and 13 minutes in a treatment
trauma. The next patient took ten minutes to signal that he had enough for five
minutes remained trauma. I found that the tissue defi nitely on all these
Telephones are treated, but our hands are there to monitor the time the change that
we seek, has taken place. It turned out that 350 dollars was wasted and I have
thrown away the machine. I say it again therefore: If we play with the science that
allows the physiological function, to do their thing, we must follow the rules.
Some of my colleagues are trying always to drive new ways to fi nd patients so
they have more energy temporarily during treatment. Their idea is that then more
can be accomplished. But this does not work, because if you've tuned in to your
boss and their boss, then the nameless body physiology uses only the specifi c
amount of energy that is required. These driving methods you might feel that more
happened, but it is not so.
You can not push this work; it simply will not work. Of course, I can give each of
you in this room treatment and by working directly and the Boss and use all energy
and all my knowledge, buchII-59
The large Tide
Then there is this great, tidenartige movement. That's an interesting thing that I
noticed for the first time with some people about 10 years ago, which I treated. Off
Obviously she has always been there, but at first it was verblff end. I was working
15 or 20 minutes to someone and suddenly I was the fact described
aware that it felt as if the whole patient would extend. It was as I watched the fi
ngerartigen waves the Tide as they washed up the beach and penetrated all the
tissues. This happened four or five times. I watched and just thought, " This is fun;
what is happening here? "Finally, all of a sudden something happened and the
whole thing melted away. It underwent off Obviously one of these relative Still points
and then e no longer been necessary it its further work.
So where does this great Tide from? Is she coming from above or from below or
from the sides? Is it inside and decides to get out? If it starts somewhere and ends
somewhere on? I have not the slightest idea. It could be a harmonic oscillation.
There have been set up for ten times per minute stattfi Ndende fluctuation of

cerebrospinal fluid many explanations. But it is easier to explain this tidenartige


movement because it is a liquid body in a given space. But in this great tide I have
no idea. All I know is, that it shows itself.
Question: Have you found them at every?
No I have not. In fact, I do not even look for it. I've noticed that it sometimes runs
Auchter when people have many common systemic problems, things that take up
the whole body physiology. If you have a patient who has a fairly large area or
enough smaller aff s, they emerged gradually and sometimes probably even during
a treatment program. Apparently the patient needs a fairly large number of
interconnected issues have, so she goes into action.
I think it's always there, but like everything else it is, as long as no
Problem is there, strictly in exchange with the entire universe. If no problem is there,
you feel just the simple rhythm. I think we are in simple rhythmic harmony with the
stars far away, ten times per minute for the CSF and all the minute and a half for
this great tide. I think this great tide is always present, but when a Wiii-61
in this case is a fulcrum - whether it is a hand, if there are two hands, an elbow, a
knee, or whatever you're set.
The fulcrum is the source of strength. It is the reference point from which the lever
of your body - you as pending, palpating person - try and the levers of the body of
the patient to deal with the problem.
If you have built up with any part of your body a fulcrum, you work with the help of
levers, while her body delivers lever. In this system, your Fulkrumpunkt is a neutral
point that forms the venue for the fight, the stattfi ends must ,.
Question: So you zentrierst him?
I do not know if I will make the center. All I know is that you offer them an arena,
allowing them to do their thing. One can not say that you pretend the center. I do
not know what will happen. Maybe it is not centered, perhaps. It can move to the
peripheral or central Multicoat stattfi. You offer only the battlefield.
Question: I understand.
No, you do not understand and will never understand it. I have not understood it,
but I'm not worry about it.
You can not describe function. I can not describe or tell you how it works it to you.
I know the rules. I know the principle: If I move my arm from one place to the other,
I have to work from a Fulkrumpunkt from. Otherwise, I could not do that. I have to
move from one point, which is somewhere in the back of my body. I need to move
from a Fulkrumpunkt from. Therefore I make a Fulkrumpunkt for the patient who has
a nameless body physiology, so something happens out of it for yourself. I do not
know how she does it, and it is indifferent to me. But I know the principle. I need to
get the point from where it can be done. There is always a fulcrum for any change.
When I'm working on one's e hip, as I have demonstrated it earlier, I support my
elbows on my thighs. This gives me reference points. I am doctor and I want to
achieve in a reasonable time something and not sit around 24 hours, and ask me

what actually happens here. I want to know when I start working on the patient and
when to ren aufh. For that I need a reference point. This will allow you II-63
You can view the things that perform the function, describing, but the function itself
is indescribable. You have about you but do not worry because they fi nd place
anyway. If you need help, you just imagining a fulcrum, make a point from where
start the function and can do their own thing. You take a lot of pressure. Not you
need to make the e Verdauungssft that should the sandwich, which was eaten
today digest. The body physiology takes over - you supported the process.
Palpation skills
You will develop your skills palpatory much faster than I did. It took me four whole
years, from 1945 to 1949, until my stupid sensory cells woke up and felt things that
I should perceive. Our sense of touch is completely dead, except when it comes to
say, " Here is a cup of coff ee , "or something like that. You have your eyes used,
since you were born. You did not used to the skill of an artist, but you still can see.
You've always heard, though not with the skill of a musician. To develop the sense
of touch so that it is of equal sensitivity as your eyes or your ears, truly takes time.
It takes a minimum of two years.
The more you put on your hands on people, the more strange things you feel and
the less you understand it. But even then, you will improve your sense of touch
constantly. Finally, the time when you analyze and say come can that this is probably
the reason for this particular patient discomfort is because you know your anatomy
and physiology. You can decide that this area probably needs attention because it
a little so feels as would probably happen if I could do that, what's going on in there,
break up a bit and let dissolve. However, there is no guarantee, maybe it does not
happen. But in any case you have your touch a
Given indication of where you should look. It takes some time to develop his sense
of touch. I do not care if you know exactly what is a fulcrum, and know all their
answers. Would you still need to take a long time to develop your sense of touch.
You have it here to do with a finite field and its own lack of development. There is
no need to rush. I have consciously used my sense of touch in every patient who
came to me in the last 35 years and I'm still developing it.
II-65
hurts, when it is placed in the other direction, but when I bring it up to the point where
it fell into dysfunction, it does not hurt a bit. It is completely neutral. I can support
and these four main movements that are always present, can work and play with the
ligaments and lead gradually corrected through there. So there it Then the
mechanism of joint returns and is without dysfunction neutral.
You can accomplish the same thing with Direct Action. You can the aff enes
Part to the point where it should be, bring back - though the patient is not like in an
acute case. Looking to point somewhere between the state in which the joint friend
now are in, and the one in which you want it like to return again. You fi nd the point
at which it is neutral again. It is just about balanced Fulkrumpunkte; you need to

always look for such things out. You work in bringing it to a neutral state until you've
got it to a point where you get the feeling " . Ah, there it is "
Then retaining this balance until it has undergone a treatment cycle. It will fight back,
twist and turn and then solve. It will correct itself. One uses the disintegration run to
a dysfunction or a
Bringing mechanism to a point where he can go in the gain or direct action.
Use of compression
In my treatments, I sat at the beginning like a bit of a compression. In my
understanding, a person is centered somewhere - there is a center. As an aid in the
treatment I can apply a controlled compression in the direction of this center - from
where ever and on which patterns of dysfunction whatsoever. This is a controlled
compression, I do not slide easily back there. And here I act again as a party, a party
of quantum mechanics. When I first insets a little compression in the direction of the
center point and then the gain, direct action, or whatever I want to take, I realize that
I'm getting much faster results and better corrections.
The compression goes toward the point, from where does the energy. The
manifesting energy radiates on and on, until the end of
Extremity. If I, compress toward the point, from which the force, I bring them back
towards their built Fulkrumpunktes. I II-67
builds have. It is something that goes against my normal alignment mechanism. I
am one day down in the same boat and have produced exactly this problem.
I drove over a lake with very rough waves and have caught a cold myself
completely. I pushed my leg in internal rotation to the boat in order to avoid that I
was kicked out, and thus brought the whole leg in an internal rotation dysfunction
pattern. When I had finally understood, I realized that this pattern does not fit to me
and that I am tired, so walking around. It put on my muscles and everything else. I
had already been in some of my colleagues, but they can not help me. Finally, I
have to figure it out themselves and fi ng to play around with. At last I found the
balance point, supported him and after a while it felt as if the whole leg drop. When
I looked, of course, nothing happened, but it felt as if trying to get up on the one and
the other kind. It strained against this boat, all the way across the lake until it
suddenly turned down a gear, relaxed and returned again in external rotation. It had
treated themselves.
If the occiput deep stands on one side, it means that the whole tight
Fascia, which attach to the skull base, reflect this. 34 muscles are attached to the
skull base, 17 on one side and 17 on the other. In addition to these muscles there
fascia, which at the skull base tacking s and continuously to the feet extend further.
If the occiput deep stands on one side, that side of the occiput is in relative external
rotation and you fi nd therefore everything is in order on this site, in conjunction, in
relative external rotation and everything on the other side in relative internal rotation
before. You can maybe have a little scoliosis in the body related to it.
When the sacrum lowers on one side, there is a slight curve. But as long as the
curve is free to move, it does not matter how many corners there. As long as the
spine can go to their inherent flexion-extension movement without hindrance, there

is no problem. The problem arises when you destroy this pattern. If you z. B. have
a normally externally rotated rib suddenly becomes an internally rotated rib, you
have a rib dysfunction and really hurts. It does not fit into the pattern. You take the
chest in his hands and ask firmly, that the patient has leaned forward and his ribs
turned the wrong way. Then you think in a way you can keep the thing, so that it
dissolves and its relative II-69
later again back for a relatively small complaint and I found his muscles in the upper
thoracic region as good as new before. They had, completely healed by eight years
of massage.
You can see how important it is to read what would do the nameless, physiological
functioning in each patient like if it could be an unloaded nameless body. Remember
how much potential there is to help someone. The person does not even have
symptoms. All you need is a universal nameless body physiology, says: " I have
rules about my health aufr echtzuerhalten and these rules are violated. "And if the
rules are violated, you can investigate this situation.
At least 35% of all patients who had a car accident, have a blocked mechanism.
It does not matter whether they come from the side,
were front or the back made the village s, as long as they were made the village s.
Q. remains the indefinitely if you do not korrigierst it?
Yes, fortunately, most people, however, adapt to it and do not have so much pain.
Hufi g you need, when you discover a blocked mechanism, to remind people that
they had an accident. The 10 times per minute stattfi Ndende fluctuation runs still
on, but they are not going so well and less effi cient.
The sacrum is a wedge mechanism which is located between the pelvic bone.
When chest, we are aware that the shoulder blades, the sternum and the ribs are
separate structures, with a certain degree of independent mobility - in the same way
the sacrum and the two hip bones should have a certain level of independent
function. By trauma the sacrum can stuck between the two pelvic bones or be
wedged and then they work as a unit. In a car accident z. B. you'll only thrown off
the seat and then come out with a bang back down. This can lead to a blockage of
the involuntary movement of the sacrum.
You can place one hand under the sacrum and include it with your fingertips to
the base as a tray easy to diagnose a blockage. With the other arm you make a
bridge between the two Ilia to check their movement. Lasse then the patient ection

is that the patient due to treatment and their effects on the autonomic nervous
system and the commands for the food recovery was finally able to take all the
medications and to utilize. Therefore, these patients ten times so far received drugs
daily came suddenly with less.
Treating frozen shoulder

You will all your life cases of stiff shoulders look. I saw a lady with bilateral frozen
shoulder nine years ago. She could only raise her arm a bit and then she was just
passed out. She had a bilateral brachial neuritis and has been for many years. She
had long tried all sorts of treatments, before I saw her, and when she came, I worked
with all techniques that have been ever developed. I have everything that was in the
book, tried to loosen these shoulders. The shoulder is an impressive structure. The
only place where the upper extremity to the bony skeleton depends, is to connect to
the sternum at the medial end of the clavicle. Here is the only bony contact of the
arm with the rest of the body. Everything else is a free-hanging mechanism of
ligaments, tendons and fascia, which reach up to the neck, running down on the Th
ORAX and the hip e.
Everything else depends on space.
After three months, the shoulders of the woman felt a little better, but in terms of
the mobility of the arm we were progressed a single step. One day she was lying on
my treatment bench, I took off my shoes and put my foot in her armpit. I put my
palpatory touch to a through the sole of my foot through it and tried herauszufi ends,
what was going on. Since I had an idea, and at the same time they told me that the,
what I just did, well anfhle. I did not practice a lot of pressure on their shoulders
and I thought to myself, " then you've made a Fulkrumpunkt, how would it be to sit
here a crutch , "That's what I did and it helped her.
To use this method, make sure you considering the shoes worn by the patient
usually, a crutch to the correct height. It is adjusted so that it reaches exactly the
highest point of the shoulder. The only thing that the patients do is to draw the
crutches by the handle e when you walk on it. They should not rely on it; proceed
as normal with the crutch under his arm. They use them for every step you make,
from the II-73
Patients will have a relief. Some make only up to a point and still have a certain
degree of movement restriction, but the shoulder is relatively free so that they have
no desire to play around with the crutch and not persevere to the end. If you really
have a serious problem, it will take two to three weeks until you feel a relief. There
is so much going on in the shoulder area. Do you remember the anatomical images
of all that there is in the armpit? All these things need to be bathed. There are many
things here that need attention, and they are not simply react, just because you
asked it. This process is not about to make the mind over matter. The idea is to
explain the mind.

II-75
the absolute basic quality of life are - the movement. And making its own direct
experience of Buddha emphasized the dynamic nature of reality as opposed to the
then prevailing generally Auff assung that there is a fixed Atmaveda, in an eternal
and immutable essence proclaimed .10 Furthermore, the author said that in fact, the
original concept of the Atman a " universal rhythmic force, the living breath of life is,
"comparable to the Greek pneumatos (mind), the fl the individual and the universe
utet.11
He talked about the existence of a dynamic, direct experience, which corresponds
to this silence. It is not what we call the Still Point - of which there are countless. It
is this silence. The silence is the driving force in the concept that I use in my practice.
I use defi nitely the silence as a driving force to ensure changes in my patients.
In another eastern philosopher, I found a beautiful description of silence. The man
listened to an artist who played a very complicated Indian musical instrument. The
musicians played wonderfully, his hands glided over the strings and staggered by
the strings in the correct voltage and in the correct manner plucks e, he produced
the correct sound quality. The audience continues in his description:
"Something strange happened in the room, which is called mind. He had the graceful
movements of the fingers considered, listened to the sweet sounds, the nodding heads
and the rhythmical hands of silent people watching. Suddenly, the observers, the
audience disappeared; he had not been lulled by the melodious strings in a state of
suspension, but completely absent. There was only the vast space of the mind. All things
of the earth and the people were in it, but at the very outer edge, vague and far away.
Inside the room, where nothing existed, there was a movement, and the movement was
silence. It was a deep, powerful movement, undirected, purposeless, which stemmed
from the outer edges, moving with incredible force toward the center - a
Center that is everywhere within the silence, within the movement, which is space.
This center is perfect solitude, unbefl hatched, unrecognizable, a loneliness that
does not mean isolation, which has no beginning and no end. It is in itself

exchange, his arterial Zufl uence and its venous drainage. The entire overview of
our training gives us a dynamic understanding of what we palpate and what we have
in our hands. Once the silence I am as a driving force, which has taken control of
this case, I realized my hands start to palpate and feel the displacement of the
elements of body physiology and their response to this driving force, resulting from
the silence. It is more than just a sense of movement. A lively exchange fi instead
of a friend. It is a true physiological Describe the pattern of body physiology, as it
exists in the existing problem which has been brought into practice. My hands feel the whole pattern of the disease process, the traumatic process all elements of the whole body physiology, which manifest themselves as traumatic

process or disease process of function within this system. My hands - my thinking,


sentient, knowing fingers - can feel the outward manifestations of life as time, space
and movement in this existing problem within the patient. This is felt by the hands
and the senses. It can be seen in the response of the patient and how he describes
the clinician's history against. It is the sensory experience of the impact of this
problem on the patient, and all of this is the increase sensations ndungsvermgen
the practitioner accessible.
We have previously addressed two points. The first is the perception or the selfpromoting and raising awareness of silence - and this is a product of the mind. This
is the use of the mind. This is the ability to detect the silence to recognize and learn
and must be done by the Spirit by perceiving and raising awareness. The second
point is that this working mechanism for the trained touch of thinking, seeing, feeling
and knowing fingers to feel. It is possible to feel the manifestations of change that
stattfi tissue ends, stimulated by the silence that is in the patient. If we make it or
perceive how it carries out its work in the patient aware, then here we have a law of
the inherent physiological function that manifests its own infallible Potency. Leave it
a little differently expressed by saying us again: the inherent physiological function
is allowed to manifest as a result of potency or silence in action in this patient.
As a clinician, I am deeply aware that I am participation by my thinking, sentient,
knowing finger at this out of movements, mobility and
Functional processes, which in the illness and traumatic conditions of II-79
Fact to feel that there is an exchange between silence and health.
As much energy as in the body physiology hineinfl ows, fl ows from her back to
dissolve into silence. It is carried out a complete exchange, an ebb and a flood. You
can this exchange of silence and health as a free exchange and as a total ed eyes
in both directions feel when you put your hands on a healthy body part. There is no
problem - there is
Freedom. If you put your hands on a problem, you share as a practitioner the
experience you share the experience of the problem in patients. You experience the
silence, with its motivating energy that centers the whole body. You can add
Feel exchange between the silence and the problem. You can feel the shift in the
dynamic body function and how it is to their own inherent problem in relationship.
And you can feel how she tries to free herself and get into perfect exchange with the
silence. That's the simplicity of the ability to sense the body's physiological function,
as it solves the pent Krft e, tensions, pressure conditions, articular-ligamentous
dysfunction and toxic states and transformed. So it feels like if the whole
organization of the body physiology works with the energy of silence and is
stimulated by it to create a pattern of change, a pattern of correction. So this is a
treatment program where health means a return to the free exchange of body
physiology and silence.
Well, I've probably not well expressed, Anne. But I feel very clearly that we have
the opportunity to devote ourselves more intensively studying silence. I am
convinced that it is our conscious law as clinicians, to grant this silence a lively share
in the dynamics of our diagnosis in our treatment program and in the care of our
patients. I told you already of the experience that I made when I used them for selftreatment. In this particular case, I did not try to palpate the stattfi in my body

see the changes in my body physiology subjectively through my senses. My
consciousness was spiritual awareness, spiritual perception of silence.
The physiological responses of my body on this treatment program I was able to
sensory level perceive through the subjective sense of my body physiology.
If I use the one patient, consciousness of my mind and my mind is focused on the
complete silence that the entire self

Disease and the technology for the rhythmically balanced
exchange

This 1972 written and then twice - in May 1974 and in January 1975 - revised
text, in which he summed up his own understanding of treatment and its
approach, Dr. Becker wrote only for their own use. He never tried public publ
him, though he showed it to colleagues. The present version is from 1975.

II-83
A Concept
for health, trauma and disease
The body physiology demonstrates the following principles:
1.

LIFE is
Time and space manifested as movement in order to be
Function of body physiology represent.

Life can not be defi ne. It can be described. Time, space and
Movement are the manifestations of life, spiritual from its highest
Manifestations down to the simplest physical phenomena. Life includes silence and
space / time :: movement to the body as a physiological function demonstrieren.13
Health: Physiological body functioning (anatomical-physiological mobility, motility,
balanced liquid exchange) (space / time :: movement) and silence (potency) of life
manifest complete freedom in rhythmic balanciertem exchange.
Trauma, illness etc .: Body Physiological operation (anatomic physiological
mobility, motility, balanced liquid exchange) (space / time :: movement) manifest and
the silence (potency) of life a rhythm for each trauma, any disease or any other
restricted state specifi limited balanced exchange.
The silence of life is directly experienced through exact perception (awareness)
as the dynamic nature of reality. Space / Time :: movement of body physiological
function experienced by exact perception (awareness) and through the physical
senses, including palpation directly as a dynamic character of reality.
The application of this knowledge can be described in several ways.
In order to assess the body's physiological function, it is necessary to perceive the
silence using the knowing awareness of this dynamic factor of life and at the same
time by means of the physical senses, including
13 The mathematical symbol "::" stands for "proportion" - a proportional relation
between shares. Dr. Becker cited in a letter to a colleague an author whose works
he had read, and said that space and time are two aspects of the most
fundamental quality of life were, namely the movement.
II-85
compels the practitioner a working philosophy and physiological knowledge of the
anatomical and physiological mechanism of the patient. Rate this technique for the
rhythmic balanced exchange in the body physiology and promote health (health: full
operational capacity in all areas of the body physiology) and can traumas and
disease (trauma and disease: impaired functional capacity in specifi c areas of the
body physiology, for each trauma and any diagnose and treat disease state specifi
cally).
The osteopath basically has an education in anatomy, physiology, pathology and
all related scientific s that serve a medical evaluation of health, and is able to do
something for the patient by means of medicine, surgery or other procedures,

trauma and disease diagnose and treat. The techniques for the rhythmically
balanced interchange require a clinician, one step further towards
Understanding of body physiology of the patient to go, by working with the
anatomical and physiological mechanisms of the patient and through them and uses
their potency as a motivating force to assess health and generate and diagnose
existing trauma and disease and correct.
Life is movement in space and time references, from the highest spiritual
Manifestations to the simplest physical phenomena. The body physiology is
movement in space and time references, from the highest spiritual manifestations
to the simplest physical phenomena. The body physiology includes energy at all
levels of their existence in motion and time coordinates; it relates uids all Krperfl,
all soft tissues, all bony tissue with a well and the exchange between all elements
of the body physiology, from the highest spiritual manifestations down to the
simplest physical and occurring in the environmental phenomena. It ranges from the
implantation of the fertilized egg to the final perceived transition of the individual to
another level of acting.
Each individual body physiology is to manifest life (movement :: space / time,
highest spiritual manifestation to physical phenomena), equipped with power,
energy fields and potency - a potency that tap into one, reading and with which you
can work and which can be used by the dentist for his diagnosis and his treatment
program in order to creating health and s the Eff ects of traumas in the individual
body physiology of patients II-87
The body physiology of the patient has the resources to cooperate in all respects.
To learn to use, is the responsibility of the practitioner.
Defi nition
Body physiology: general ability of an individual to create health and to resist trauma
and / or disease or to adapt to it.
Potency: driving force of life, from the highest spiritual manifestation to the simplest
physical phenomena.
Rhythmic: the recurrence of an action or function at regular intervals; harmonious
relations.
Balanced: the principle of unity, of oneness; automatically be verschiebendes, freefloating fulcrum in all anatomic-physiologic mechanisms; the site of the potency for
all energies, associated with a movement :: space / time ratio; in it is the stability
that is the cause.
Exchange: mutual give and take.
Anatomical-physiological mechanisms
Rhythmic balanced interchange techniques use directly the total energy and
resources of the body physiology of the patient for the diagnosis and treatment by
interpreting the movement of life in space / time relationships including replacement
of Krperfl uids, all cell movements of soft tissue and articular mobility of the bony

components , These techniques are more than fascial techniques, ligamentousarticular techniques or membranous-articular techniques. Nevertheless, this
application descriptions are the tools that will help the practitioner can develop his
sense of touch and his Palpationsvermgen to use the entire energy and resources
of the body physiology in diagnosis and treatment.
The simple lever and fulcrum be used as an example of the space / time
movement of the lever arms over a range of Fulkrumbalance containing the potency.
In the functional processes of the body physiology from the levels of space / time
movement of fascial tissue and connective tissue levers II-89
General principles
It is the primary goal of body physiology resources, health for individuals to erschaff
s. The tendency of the body physiology is always toward health. Added to the body
physiology trauma or disease, it resists or adapts to the constraints imposed on and
examined in the anatomical-physiological functional processes continuously to
health. Rhythmically balanced exchange techniques are a direct approach with the
body physiology to work and the manufacture of health and the ed eyes of trauma
and disease in their anatomical and physiological functional processes to support .
It is the intelligent use of rhythmically balanced exchange techniques, if necessary
supplemented by medical and / or surgical intervention, which is the effi cient form
of care for the body physiology of the patient in times of need. One can not be
overestimated, the self-healing ability of the body physiology.
Rhythmically balanced exchange technology
This technique is a method by which you can bring the body physiology of the patient
to assess their health status itself and to deal with any injuries and medical condition
may exist even while together with those to exploit their own resources, which brings
the practitioner. The active applying this technique in the patient's body can be
observed by Palpationsvermgen and be conscious perception of tissue processes
in their treatment course the practitioner. The achievable in each treatment session
corrections will continue until the next appointment.

way to a healthier functioning in the body physiology of the patient.

The practitioner then moves his (s) Fulkrumhandkontakt (s) to the

The dentist performs the treatment of so many destinations, as

The time required for treatment will vary from patient to patient. The
purpose of treatment is to bring the body physiology, so that they assess their
own health patterns and treats her own traumatic or pathological states using
the resources from their anatomical-physiological mechanisms. It may take a
few minutes to the first
Leading destination through the course of treatment, but if the response of the
body physiology is once set in motion, react subsequently selected destinations
much faster on the ongoing needs within the patient's body. The reached the first
destination correction acts as a stimulus to proceed more quickly with the
corrective measures to the other locations, while the potency factors of tissue the
body physiology perform their changes.

Applications of body physiology
Pathologies of the soft tissues (muscles and organs of the parenchyma, such as
liver, heart, kidneys, lungs, etc..). They require on the part of the practitioner a
detailed knowledge of the role of fascia that support the mobility of the connective
tissue, which involved specifi soft tissue and organs.
The practitioner ensures the rhythmically balanced exchange in the fascial
Cases of the involved soft tissues or organs to restore their mobility in a healthy
physiological function. In addition, it ensures the rhythmically balanced sharing of
associated venous and lymphatic drainage ways, the arterial supply and the
supervisory authorities of the autonomic nervous system for the involved organs to
restore a healthy anatomical-physiological function.
Ligamentous joint dysfunctions : They require the part of the practitioner a detailed
knowledge of the function pattern of ligamentous-articular relations of the cervical,
thoracic and lumbar spine, the thorax, pelvis and related areas. The practitioner
ensures the rhythmically balanced exchange of involved specifi ligamentousarticular dysfunctions and the associated tissue of the venous and lymphatic
drainage of the arterial supply of the spinal and supervisory of the autonomic
nervous system to restore the health of the anatomic-physiologic function.
Membranous joint dysfunctions : What they provide is a detailed knowledge of the
coordinated and integrated functional model of the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal
fluid, the motility of the brain and spinal cord, the mobility of the reciprocal tension
membrane (dura mater), the articular mobility of the 22 cranial bones and the
involuntary mobility of the sacrum between the Ilia.

The practitioner ensures the rhythmically balanced exchange of involved specifi


membranous joint dysfunction to restore a healthy anatomical physiological
function.
Trauma and disease states : They include all traumatic problems, regardless of
their simplicity or complexity, and all disease states, irrespective of their simplicity
or complexity.
This requires on the part of the practitioner a detailed knowledge of anatomy,

and his hands to actively select the target areas and it actively builds a hand-fulcrum

physiology of the patient from which your rhythmically balanced may begin
exchange activity. This fulcrum is therefore a baseline from which the practitioner
the changes that stattfi within the body physiology of patients can ends, Read. The
practitioner feels, feels, and learns the activities of the body physiology of the
patient, attends them and follows them as they pass through the treatment cycle.
The dentist selects the target secondary areas, in order to gain from the patient's
body, the effi cient response to the problem to be treated. The practitioner stopped
the treatment when he feels to feel the maximum response that would give the body
physiology to this particular appointment or can. The practitioner is planning the next
appointment so as to meet the needs expressed by the results of the treatment of
the patient.
The Anatomy physiology of the patient is a great teacher. And the attentive, active
mind (consciousness, perception) and the hands of the practitioner will make this an
excellent student, when he uses the rhythmically balanced exchange techniques.
Rhythmic balanced interchange techniques require that the practitioner agrees to
seek use of the body physiology of the patient to allow the inherent physiological
function, to manifest their own infallible Potency rather indiscriminate use of force
applied from the outside.

4. What are you doing?


Revised copy of a question-and-answer period during a basic course, in
1988 in the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation in Tulsa, Oklahoma,
took place. Said faculty members are Drs. Rollin Becker, John Harakal,
Edna Lay and Herbert Miller.
Question: I have had the experience that I lay my hands on a head, start working
and then look up and am shocked that 30 minutes have elapsed. Did I do something
bad?
E. Lay: You will thus harm anyone, but that brings us to a good
Point.People who do this work can be so in love with this fantastic, strange wave of
rhythmic things that happen that you get carried away it. They enjoy simply. You will
do no harm and you can forever go on like this, but it does not bring you forward.
I would like to that Dr. Becker to the difference between "on-DER
Wave-ride with "and" treatment "expresses. Something happens when he sits on
the bench and working, although it looks as if he were just there. I want Dr. Becker
gives us the fact that a certain degree of effort in the work infl ows when he treats.
R. Becker: For many years I've been working on it in treating patients, a one-to-one
relationship building between me and the substance of life of the patient. If you
completely take out your personality, take away your name, take away everything
that you have in life, except what you alive, you're automatically a simple body
physiology that works. If I can work on a one-to-one basis and try to understand
what the mechanism will (the patient) tell me I'm out of the specific type of pattern
and the type of function in this patient. Its mechanism has literally calling the shots.
I'm not looking for a pattern within this mechanism. I listen to how the mechanism
works, while I put on my hands.
I describe a case in order to make it easier. A man came in my II-101
What I want to clarify so is the following: We are living by the
Physiology of the patient led to search the place from which something can be done
to allow the body to teach yourself to let go of his problems, and this place is often
not where the symptoms are. By reading constant in this living mechanism, we are
able to recognize,
as he has on what has been done in the last treatment, reacts, and to consider what
can be done on that particular day.
There is a constant shift in the availability of this information. What has this body,
which he would like to tell me, and how can I get him to speak louder? How do I feel
that something is going to happen? Suddenly I realize that it has happened, so I'd
better let go and let the patient go home to recover? This approach to treatment is
an organized way to allow the human mechanism to achieve a change in a living
body by a living physician.
I accept the fact that I can learn to use the body physiology of patients to make
their own work. The question is: What is the simplest mechanism that I can use that
literally has a certain control over everything in the body? Many different types of

mechanisms are at work. Think of everything that makes our bodies. However, no
matter what he does:
Everything in the body is quick rhythmically in flexion / external rotation and
extension / internal rotation. Absolutely everything. I have developed palpation skills
that I can read the flexion and extension mechanism of any tissue in the body. I must
not call a muscle, I do not have to call an elbow. I can name a part of the body it
simply, the follow the rules.
I can with all what I pick to work in the body, because every tissue followed the
rules of flexion and extension. It must have no name. The other thing is that
everything in the body fluid Drive has, otherwise it would work not only. Hence my
palpatory skills to the Fluid Drive Read, which is accompanied by the flexion and
extension.
Here I have another example from practice. A woman comes into practice with an
incredible dysfunction of the psoas muscle. She had been in a tent for camping,
middle of the night a wolf howled and her husband sat up to see what was going on;
where he leaned with his elbow directly on your psoas muscle.
II-103
When she comes back the next time, says its mechanism: " For me, over here it
runs pretty good. I work my way through it well here, so let me know the treatment
the next two weeks skip long, so that I can absorb all this. "So I'm done for the day
with the treatment. The patient comes back and I feel the same "vitality" bottom of
the psoas above in her shoulder. When inserting my palpatory skills, guides me, the
patient with their Fluid Drive and its flexion-extension mechanism as the only tools.
It took me a long time to understand that you can reduce this mechanism to the
most simple. There is not a single medical text book that says that the whole body
physiology is a flexion-extension mechanism with a fluid drive, but every patient who
comes in your practice, is one. You do not look for it. He is in front of you.
Question: Dr. Becker, just talked about you to approach very close to this psoas
dysfunction, and yesterday you talked about there being far as a "water strider".
Could you talk about these two ideas? As the act to potency and how can those two
things coexist? To be specific: Could you please talk about the full-close-approach
as opposed to the wide-be-outside?
E. Lay (to Dr. Becker): In addition I also wanted to speak to ask you - there are
Times when you need to apply a certain force from the outside, Ussen to infl inside.
R. Becker: I do not know if I have an answer. The idea of water strider is an image
that I use. I talked about the fact that there are different levels at which we learn
palpate. There is the sense of touch in our hands and the proprioceptors in the
muscles of our forearms. In addition, we may make us aware that we get this
information by the sensorimotor system in our brains. All of these approaches to the
Krft e within the human body are automatically available through the simple study
of the mechanism, as it exists in the patient.

The patient comes with a problem with something that has stuck to, so we have
to do something to help him. Let's go back to the original idea, which we talked about
earlier, namely that the body mechanism, a II-105
H. Miller: I want you to notice that Dr. Becker all the time while he spoke, talked
about a mechanism and not named. If you are confused because you believe need
to name something for insurance or other reasons, you are constantly worried and
are at odds with the whole situation. That's because you hingucken and then ren
aufh and analyze it. You then do not live here and now. Make your work and
afterwards you can then analyze it and identify when it is absolutely necessary
because.
R. Becker: That is one hundred percent correct. When I'm working in my office to
my patients, I use this water striders or anything else that is available to me. When
it comes to satisfy insurance people and each other, which is a separate part of my
practice life. I'm working on a patient, and afterwards I will report that they were a
somatic dysfunction in the cervical region at the level of C5, and then I pass the
Insurance Institute.
J. Harakal: Here we get another analogy of Dr. Becker. He says that while our
patients approach us through an intervention or a co - whatever we want to call it there is a boat of life that swam along the current, long before they passed, and
We hope s that it will float for a long time on, after you have gone. All you do is to
get on the boat and to help keep it from some banks, so it is not too badly damaged.
That's another way of saying: " . Pull yourself too seriously, because your intention
could beat a leak in the boat , "You're just for there to assist in controlling the boat.
Realize that the river of life is gefl variables in this person since her conception and
ow weiterfl is until her death.
Question: I am still not clear what we are doing. We follow the mechanism and now
we have arrived, we are the patterns of dysfunction - we see and feel it, and then
what?
R. Becker: What then? We make it work. Grab the tissue in and around this area
and compress the thing a little. They pester the body mechanism which
automatically goes into flexion / external rotation and extension / internal rotation
and follow these patterns within this range, where it on

5. From Knowledge to Treat


This text is a revised copy of a speech by Dr. Becker, he his colleagues
in the Dallas Osteopathic Study Group presented. He gave this speech
in preparation for his presentation of this theory emas before a larger
group of osteopaths in Austin, Texas, in the year 1967th
Osteopathy is a very difficult-to-learn science. If you want to learn it, you need to
study the fundamental osteopathic literature. There are many good books on
Osteopathy. But if you want the basics of osteopathy, as Andrew Still it identified
and taught to learn, you have to fall back on his writing s. Three of his books have
publ entlichten Autobiografi e, philosophy of osteopathy and osteopathy:. Research
and Practice In addition to these books, you need to Harold Magouns osteopathy in
the cranial sphere take 16 because Dr. Still the detailed anatomy and physiology of
the craniosacral mechanism does not equal to the Art has covered like the rest of
the body. Therefore Dr. Magouns's book necessary if you a complete analysis of all
Mechanism of body physiology and anatomy have mchten.17
This does not mean that you have to believe everything that Dr. Still said. In his
philosophy of osteopathy as it goes into great detail about the importance of earwax.
I never knew what he was talking. In his book research and practice , he suggests
all sorts of techniques for various disorders before, describes how corrections are
to be done, and I am not familiar with all the methods used by him in complete
agreement. I think we have some of the methods he used, refined, like analyzing,
diagnosing and treating osteopathic dysfunctions". It is not necessary to accept Dr.
Stills approach in all respects as the way how

Note. D. Edit .: Becker refers as Sutherland on the first edition of the
works of H. Ma-Goun Sr. In the present German edition is a translation of
the fourth edition age, resulting in significant parts of the first edition differs.

This speech was given before the works of Dr. Sutherland ver ff
were entlicht. See also Volume I & II ( Some thoughts and teachings in the
science of osteopathy) in the large e Sutherland Compendium ,

from knowledge to treat. If your skills and the results of your treatment then improve,
you will gradually think more about the knowledge side, the principles page. They
achieve a balance between knowledge and treatment and keep your mind off en for:
" . When I do this, perhaps that will happen "if the treatment will show no results,
you have learned from experience that it does not work with this problem, and adjust
your view on new, to think of something else and maybe get results. And when the
next case comes with a similar problem, you realize that you can rely more on their
knowledge to decide,
what you can do for the patient. In this way they develop their knowledge into
treatment , and that is the ideal.

The osteopathic dysfunction is generally the basis on which builds the osteopathic
treatment. If we in a patient an osteopathic dysfunction fi nd take most of us, this
was the cause of the problem that has this patient. But not all of us in the osteopathic
profession believe. Some of us think in other directions. When we encounter an
osteopathic dysfunction, we note that this dysfunction is there for a reason. We try
herauszufi ends, which infl uence would have such a dysfunction in a particular area,
and think about the anatomy and physiology to which it represents. Maybe we think
back to what this dysfunction could have triggered. Why has this person ever this
dysfunction? If we as the osteopathic dysfunction
Tool in our business and not used as a source of our business, then we start knowing
Osteopathy apply.
The osteopathic dysfunction is only a ect Eff. It is not the cause of anything. The
osteopathic dysfunction was produced by one thing or a combination of things examples of this will be discussed later
- And it represents a bergangseff ect, we can learn palpate with our perceiving
touch. Should we with our perceiving touch only an osteopathic dysfunction fi nd
and mobilize them, we will not do justice to the importance of this dysfunction. It is
really only a ect Eff. It is not the cause of anything. It is only one phase of the
anatomic-physiologic function.
II-111
Nice? Does this point to do something with your symptoms? "Then put your
Hands on the tissue of the patient and you feel the relationship between his
complaints and the feel of the fabric in the three dimensions and the time.
As the dysfunction feel? In this way you will learn the history of the Eff ect, which
was caused by the energy of the environment, and has turned into an osteopathic
dysfunction, which in turn ects within their own Eff produces on the anatomy and
physiology of the patient.
Osteopathy is primarily a profession of thinking, thinking with a diagnosis and
treatment of a thinking. You can think ren aufh at any time, with no diagnosis and
no treatment. To fall into the habit of careless to make a dysfunction to fi nd what
you want, and hope s that it will help a little, is too simple. An old friend of mine to
anyone who came to his office, administered the same manipulation treatment. It
did not matter if you got a sinus problem or a lumbar dysfunction, he administered
the same routine treatment: right side, left side, on the back, crack, crack, crack, he
dislocated your neck, and you went out. He did that for 40 years and made good
money. Has he ever practiced osteopathy? Has not he.He's still a good friend of
mine. One must have a strange mind to think anatomy and physiology to the fabric
pattern, which we call osteopathic dysfunction, the problem in
To bring the patient in conjunction and coordinated. And it requires skill - medical
skill, knowledge and perception skills.
Many osteopaths think of bony relations when they think osteopathy. They talk
about correcting a fifth en lumbar vertebra, a second rib, a third cervical vertebra
and so on, but that's the least important part of osteopathic dysfunction in
osteopathic diagnosis. It is so far never a skeleton came to me in the practice.
Explore a cross section of the spine in the thoracic region and notice that the
vertebral body anterior far, deep within the tissue. Notice the spinal canal with the

nerve roots that go out there. The spinous processes rich in the surface face of the
body, but look at the depth of the tissue at. Have a look at the muscles, ligaments,
connective tissue and the blood supply, the supply and Abfl uss this range. The
whole of this area is the osteopathic dysfunction, not the limited mobility of the facet
arrangement of one or more vertebrae. The totality of the muscular-ligamentous joint
dysfunction represents the osteopathic dysfunction. If you II-113
ensure. The mobilization but is the least important part of an osteopathic treatment.
We should first think of function and only then to move. Why?The osteopathic
dysfunction complex you within this patient fi nd represents the functional portion of
a dysfunction pattern that was created by something - by energy from the
environment. It appears, therefore, as a reciprocal function voltage pattern that
presents itself as patterns of dysfunction and if you can not analyze why it works as
dysfunction, you do not know why you should treat it. Mobilizing Dysfunction, only
to make them move, will not necessarily reflect the energy from the environment,
which had to need to produce it. You may be able to mobilize and it feels any better,
but often, if you ask your patients even have to go around the block and come back,
you will have the same dysfunction again fi nd.
You must thinking, sentient, develop knowing mental abilities and a thinking,
sentient, perceptive touch to feel the function in this dysfunction area to feel all the
factors that were necessary to produce this dysfunction. Only after you have
analyzed all this, you are able, with which technology your choice whatsoever,
ensure corrective change.
Spectrum of etiologies
Next I want to talk about the osteopathic dysfunction in relation to their etiology
spectrum. There are physical, emotional, and mental and etiologies
We will discuss each in some detail. Each osteopathic dysfunction has an etiology.
You need some energy from the environment to arise. Osteopathic dysfunctions, as
part of the symptom complex that produces the patient's disorder, represent a phase
that is available for analysis and diagnosis. If you want to make the decent, you need
to include the environmental factors that are variables eingefl in their origin, with.
Think about it, just for fun, on every patient you see this
Way after. If a patient with a dysfunction pattern comes to you, you do realize that
this patient is a living, thinking machine; a computerized, high technisiertes engine
system; a musculo-skelettres and visceral system of osteopathic dysfunction as
part of the syndrome or
Complaint that you just examine him, has developed. Familiarize yourself II-115
concerned upper limb lead. All of these factors you can consider when you go back
to birth.
Let us now go on a little off ensichtlicheres. Let's look at dreams as they are
created by strokes, falls or by lifting, pulling, twisting or pushing. If your investigation
only confine in such a patient, the osteopathic dysfunction to fi nd you have excluded
a very large factor in your knowledge. This patient is a thinking individual with a
central nervous system. He had a bucket of water

lift each edge of a slippery floor and has bent forward to do that. He had to process
as much thought that he leaned forward to lift the bucket, and then slid his foot. How
many things have been involved? The thought process, the positional change when
he is inclining to the bucket, the weight of water in the bucket, the water on the floor,
the direction of the foot slipped, and so on. All this energy from the environment was
necessary to generate this dysfunction. The same applies to any kind of dysfunction
or trauma.
If a patient you describe his case, take to the exact details and visualize: How this
happened? What did the patient at the time? He says the problem started ten years
ago. What happened then? What did he do that pulled him out of circulation for two
weeks?Go out back to the original problem, and you will fi nd what happened to his
nervous system and in what kind of a process he was involved to create the vivid
dysfunction inherent in the osteopathic dysfunction and you will nd at your present
investigation fi. Mostly you will not tell much about the dysfunction of their patients;
You will have to ask questions. This does not mean that you need to create a long,
detailed history before herausfi ends, what they are talking actually. Let them tell the
story, while your hands are on the tissues. It only takes a few minutes and they have
something that they can talk. And you can feel what they're talking, while it will enbart
through your hands off.
This approach gives you a lot more insight than just the statement: " Here is the
dysfunction. "It tells you why their nervous system is involved in this way, as the
pattern has developed within the nervous system itself. The nervous system must
have recorded it all, otherwise the fabric would not fascial and ligamentous-articular

teopathischen dysfunctions in the upper thoracic and lower cervical region, with a
general tone that had the quality of a dysfunction pathology and I said nothing. While
I was trying to feel what was going on, I gave her a treatment in order to solve some
of the Beck restrictions that came from which six years earlier childbirth process.
Furthermore, I was working on her general discomfort in the shoulder girdle and in
the cervical region.
She came back a week later and complained bitterly that no relief had occurred.
In my second investigation revealed that we had apparently done a few things in
order to eliminate some Gewebspathologien. Through the changes that had taken
place, I now could feel a range of 3 to Th Th 5, which felt motionless; he felt only
half of life. By Th 3 upward to the neck, it felt vital. By Th 5 down the fabric felt alive;
it had a good neurological vitality. But between Th 3 and Th 5 it feels as if it were
sick.
I began to ask her questions. I asked them if they have any serious
Had falls or her head was beaten against the windshield of a car or anything've
experienced, which had the area forced into this serious pattern. No, nothing like
that. Had she ever suffered an electric shock? . No, no electric shock of some sort,
but when I saw her today, she said, " You were right, Doctor, I've got seven years
ago copped electrocuted. One year before I got my first child, I put an electrical
appliance into the wall and got a terrible blow which threw me off my chair and my
arm ten
Days numb and weak made. "

Here, then, was the cause of their osteopathic dysfunction: the last seven years
she had carried around 100 volts all the way up through the Plexus zervikalis and
cervical thickening of the spinal cord with him. Her husband had remembered. Here
was the beginning of their pathology, even though she was apparently gotten over
the most impact in the year. Then, after the birth of her child, after the sudden
changes associated with pregnancy of Haltungsfulkrums, after the increase in size
and the sudden, stattfi within six to eight hours ndenden re-thin-Will,
the pattern was decompensated. It emerged after the first pregnancy and remained
her since. I believe that in some time, if we can wash the Eff ect of electric shock,
there is a chance to do it some good.
We will herausfi ends there.
I also have a viscerosomatische pathology etiology for osteopaII-119
tion is, but because I can return some of this energy field there where it came from
originally. Treatments can reduce stress pattern, so that the patient survive, carry
out their work more effi cient and may feel generally better. Tensions in marriage
are another hufi ge cause of dysfunction. I see it often. I treat a man in a very
difficult marriage once a month to reduce the excessive voltage.
We have examples of primary factors discussed producing osteopathic
dysfunctions. Osteopathic dysfunctions are Eff ects that are ends in the body
physiology to fi. If you encounter an osteopathic dysfunction, you must include the
primary factors in your thoughts. Consider the energy field that has been added into
the patient from the outside, and consider the factors that come within the patient of
which are in his own conscious thinking and in his nervous system and cause his
body creates this energy field , You must combine all of this.
Responses of the nervous system
We all have studied the pathology of an osteopathic dysfunction. There are acute
dysfunction with their restriction of normal mobility, inflammation, hypertension of
the muscles, overstressed ligaments, disorders of the blood supply, edema, pH
shifts toward acidosis and continue that areas, starting from the nervous system. A
chronic dysfunction is a well-organized, consisting of reciprocal tension connective
tissue scaffold that maintains this dysfunction, relative alkalosis, fibrosis, connective
tissue dehydration and continuous initiation of the central nervous system for
compensatory mechanism.
Here is something to think about: An acute dysfunction, a segmental

long - and when it is received in good condition, it works well, it is ef-

fi ciently, it's healthy.


I want to talk briefly about why I make these statements.Off Obviously I have
learned these things, not by reading, but by the physiology and anatomy of the
patient, while I was working with my palpatory sense to them. I tried it and am so far
failed to convey this approach, which I 'diagnostic touch "call. Nevertheless, through
this diagnostic Touching this information on the ambient energy and the rest of the
things which I have spoken, been demonstrated, so I understand and may make
such statements as just to you. The only reason why I have confidence in this type
of touching is that it literally provides something - I can explain why a patient has a
problem, and I can do something about it.
Let's go back and look at the next response from the nervous system to the
patients forced physical, emotional or mental energies around and see how the
respect to our treatment
behaves.The simplest form of energy that influenced food the patient can Ussen, is
to form a simple refl. Exbogens by a segmental area of the spine associated with a
specific dysfunction pattern Then there is a second part of the response of the
nervous system, the longer the central nervous system involving. Here is the
message of aff enes tissue - including soft tissue and viscera - transmitted to the
brain by sensory nerves in the spinal cord all the way up. Reticular Many parts of
the brain, including the formation and the theory Alamus-range receive and process
this information. And in response to this sensory input we fi nd a very large flow of
information, running down the spinal cord, in addition to all the tissues. Therefore,
there is even in a peripheral trauma is a problem in the central nervous system and
we have ways to help here.
There are also Eff ects that runs diving in the autonomic nervous system, such as
stress factors by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus. In his book Th e Stress
of Life , Hans Selye describes the various chemicals that are involved in the stages
of alert, response and fatigue in patients and as stress disorder runs Reten. In a
graph, a dotted line leading from the area of the injured tissue up to the pituitary

system to UmII-123
sends, which is the area of energy and the osteopathic dysfunction. The
Fulkrumpunkt the practitioner has set this mechanism in motion.
If you have built a Fulkrumpunkt and then compressing it lightly, you have applied
a force, and there are the answers of segmental, central and autonomic nervous
systems of the shares that you record, while the tissues begin their pattern of action.
If the mechanism starts to act, he tends to seek its way toward the balance point,
which is suitable for this anatomical-physiological-pathological picture. The
mechanism comes to a standstill point, undergoes a change and begins to unravel.
Sounds simple. I wish it were so.
The role of the practitioner
Another important aspect is that the practitioner's hands is not a lifeless, inactive

you could erfi nd a way you could put a plastic arm among patients, then turn a lever
and
go away and leave the patient alone. The practitioner is but part of the picture. He
has caused the simple spinal refl ex and refl ex the complex of the central nervous
system and then observed the dynamic response - the stattfi ndenden within the
patient's anatomical and physiological changes. He feels how the adaptive fulcrum
moves the patient. He must adapt, as appropriate its pressure on Fulkrumpunkt
while going through his
Construction phase moves. His hand lever contact control and regulate the
directions of the movements in this process and follows them.
Only he as an observer can know when the point is reached at which the corrective
cycle has been run through for the day. The chronically tired patient will require less
input to go through this cycle, because it can tolerate less. An acute lumbago, due
to heavy lifting, might require a very large amount of Fulkrumdruck and hand lever
contact to maintain the level of intensity of the energy that was needed to generate
this dysfunction.
We fail in our treatments, because we do not stay as playing golf, the ball. We look
up, do not fit in, and so get no results. The practitioner is a living, dynamic
practitioner and being diagnosed all the time, while these changes in tissue stattfi

Transcript of recorded conversations with


Donald Becker, MD (Dr. med.)
Sporadic exchanged Dr. Becker and his son Donald Becker, MD, during
the 1960s recordings with your thoughts, questions and news. Some of
the recordings were made between 1962-64, when Don as
Doctor was stationed in Germany with a US Army unit, more 1966-1967, after he
had a private practice in California net publishing pictures.

6. The point of silence


Revised copy of information recorded on audio cassette in May 1962
correspondence from Dr. Becker to his son Donald Becker, MD
REB: It's hard to talk about the point of silence. How do you erluterst Potency? As
you discuss anything that has to do with the fulcrum - the Still Point? It is
demonstrated every day in our lives, but the way you talk about it in a way that
makes sense for those who listen to you? To be honest, I do not know.
I have in the documents "Potency" called him because I with him a
Had provided names. When I recently spoke with a colleague, I made the statement
that it, no matter what terminology we choose something out there that
Disabilities, injuries and illnesses within the human anatomy physiology centered,
which, for the pattern of this particular problem carrying the power, the authority, the
potency in itself. Nevertheless, it is still difficult to understand. You have to more or
less blindly accept, without too much knowledge of the mechanical processes
actually involved.
What words do you also choose to describe it, it has proven itself in practice
thousands of times. And if it works in practice, there must be a way to bring it into
focus, so that you and others may have a benefit.

It is important to visualize the normal function within the entire mechanism. It is
important to realize that if it were possible to have a completely normal person, that
one who has not, whether acquired different patterns of deforming dysfunctions in
the womb or through the birth process, the pattern just described would exist and
would be visible to us. If we visualize the normal, it helps us better understand the
complications and variations that we encounter in life.
DLB: We have this expression "primary respiratory mechanism" and its
Synonyms already spoken for some time and I'm starting to honestly to ask me
something. Why is he there? You know what it is, you know, how he moves. You
know what structures are involved. You know its anatomy and physiology. But why
is he here? We know a thumb is there to oppose to, we know, an eye is there to see,
we know, one foot is there to run it. But why do we have a primary respiratory
mechanism? What is its function?

Let me introduce my own interpretation.It seems to me as if the Primary


respiratory mechanism, represent the breath of life from its basic nature,. He is the
breath of life is . I can no other way to fi nd to express it. I think perhaps the most
beautiful way in which it was expressed, is in Michelangelo's paintings in the Sistine
Chapel, where God stretches out his hand to touch Adam. If you have lately seen a
picture of it, it would be worthwhile to look at it again. Mother has a slide with brought
home from the time when I took her there. For me, this painting shows the
importance of the breath of life, so to speak, the sparks. What do you think about it?
REB: Your last question is good. Why is the primary respiratory mechanism
exists? What is its function? And your answer is that basically is the breath of life is
the key to the situation. This is an excellent response to a very complicated picture.
The Breath of Life, the spark that still point between the hands of God and the
erschaff enes by him Adam, that's the spark that sets the operation of the primary
respiratory mechanism in motion. The primary respiratory mechanism is this
complex anatomical-physiological unit on the
Breath of Life responds. The functioning of the primary respiratory mechanism is II129
ALISE, because even if we can not see through to the real normal, we see it in every
detail, a pattern that is right for these individuals. You were born after 30 hours of
labor and have certain cranial and sacral modifi cations, which you had to deal in
your life. Everyone has their own unique difficulties to which they must adapt.
REB: Actually, we can not say whether the bones moved the membrane or
membrane bones because the membrane part of the bone is - it's his inner lining. In
addition, all Dura mater, including the spinal portion, filled with fl uktuierendem
cerebrospinal fluid and a movable central nervous system. Are in this whole unit
friend to move, even though we in our palpation perhaps one or the other
Can focus part. We can gently rotate the temporal bone and the
Reaction of the tentorium feel or we can raise the membranes in their exhalation
and feel like rotate the temporal bone inside. But the answer to who moves whom,
is that it is a question of the normal dynamics of this mechanism is - in normal
mechanism the whole unit is in motion.
If we get a case in which there is dysfunction, a certain movement restrictions may
be in place in the restricted a membrane pattern and the movement of a certain
range is limited. Alternatively, there are a articular dysfunction, in which an impact
has led to the head to a restriction of the movement of two adjacent bone and thus
automatically the membrane connection is limited to the inside of the bone in their
mobility and by their connection to the membrane folds - the falx cerebri and the
tentorium - all the reciprocal tension membrane is restrained in its normal mobility.
In other words, when a specifi c bone is hit by a shock, we can explain this to us
so that the bony mechanism has blocked the movement of the diaphragm. On the
other hand, the membranes can block the movement of the bones. There have been
numerous cases in which soldiers of heft strength vibration exposed by artillery
bombardment, while they were under the Waff en s a warship and a volley was fired
after another over their heads. This continuous shock wave that hits their heads
going through and shattered the cranial MeII-131

Now let's look at the diagnosis.Most people are like me and have on one side of
her body an external rotation pattern, while the other side is in internal rotation.
Should arise in my usually standing in external rotation right leg dysfunction, which
forces it into an internal rotation pattern, I would get an overload, a soreness or any
other restriction. My left leg is internally rotated as part of my normal, postural
general equilibrium, but I have now received an additional burden in my right leg so
that it is now also in internal rotation.
This issue I would diagnose where I go to the healthy, ie the left, in my case, leg.
I would find that it has a fundamental internal rotation pattern. Next, I would go on
the limited side, notice that it is also in internal rotation, and suggest that a kind of
overloading caused this internal rotation. I would then try to reduce or correct to have
his normal external rotation patterns come to light again the internal dysfunction in
the right leg. That would the balance that is right for me to recover. The right balance
for me would still allow an external rotation of each limb during inhalation and internal
rotation during exhalation. Each leg but would do so within its compensatory pattern
that I have probably purchased on this earth in the process of learning to walk.

ckierende dysfunction, showed six months such symptoms. The man could well
have a glioma, but it also suffers from a very severe dysfunction that affects the
dens, the Atlas and the Pars condylar the occiput and may affect the pyramidal tracts
and the Pons.
I do not know if he will come to me, but seen physiologically it's an interesting
problem. It was interesting for me, ends a traumatic pattern to fi, the physiologically
explained the kind of symptoms under which this young man is suffering. I would
love to work for approximately the next two months to him and see if a change in
this 20 years old, the problem is possible, which in turn might infl uence could have
on the symptoms in his case, regardless of whether he has a glioma or not. You
want the glioma not operate because they can not make it accurate enough and
think the risk to kill him to play in the Hoff is greater planning than to help him.
Of course, I'll tell you only my initial thoughts.I've only seen him once, and I
measure my first investigation of a case never too much importance. I need at
least three weeks to a month to diagnose such a complicated case like this.

II-135
I could understand and that would perhaps analogous to something other than this
term
"A point of silence."
This article I found, talks about the various abnormalities of
Muscle contractions.Using electromyography they have muscle twitches defi ned
as a spontaneous contraction of a motor unit or bundle of muscle fibers. Although
muscle twitching or fasciculation mostly occurs in pathological conditions, they say
in this article that there are from time to time when people had to fi nd that have no
apparent neurological or muscular diseases, and that in such cases as "benign
muscle twitching" called. The article reports, researchers have observed that this
form of twitching regularly for many months runs rode particularly in the calf muscles
and in the small muscles of the hands and the feet in healthy, young adults, usually
after the young people an unusual effort were exposed. I found it interesting that the
researchers said they were unable to diagnose this clinically convulsions. I know
that I rarely can roughly make up muscle twitches only.
REB: What do you mean by fasciculation? An occasional muscle twitches?
TLR: No, in this article a fasciculation is a short, repeated discharge defi ned that is
found metabolic disorders in muscles of patients with tetany or other material and
consists in short tetanic contractions of a motor unit, the action potential is repeated
in almost identical form becomes. The contraction does not occur in clinical trials in
appearance as a muscular unit is small, unless one leads to the time an
electromyogram by. But the tetanic contraction is something that even feel the
individual patient or which he may be aware of. Eaton Lambert and further assert
that these contractions are limited in scope and do not normally spread to the whole
muscle.
I found this very interesting and thought this might similar to your idea of
His point of silence, although there are still does not help in the inadequacy of
sensing or feeling, if you try this idea to develop clinically. Don, I told your father of
a patient whom I saw on Tuesday night. He is a young, healthy man, the completed
package works;he shoved an object, which weighed about 40 kilos. He leaned
forward, the subject was bulky, he tipped to the left and the man practiced a
corrective force that II-137
which for a time exist, would understand, then it seems to me that they would offer
a beginning for this idea from the point of silence on a physiological basis. It could
be a model that describes a center, from which one has a progressive manifestation
of a disease.
REB: Let's go back to the patient, you've seen because of his acute back pain. The
peaceful area, the point at which you could not feel anything, was probably the point
at which it has triggered the strain. The
Points above and below, where you felt the spasm, were on

End of the lever.They refl ected the irritation that came from the area where you
could not feel anything. If you had been working on this relatively quiet area, not like
when you treat trigger points, but only to achieve a change in the biochemical fluid
dynamics in this particular area would be noticed you have that automatically
change above and occurred below this range.
I have a support for this idea in a short article about nutrient nerve e, which was
publ entlicht this year and comes from the research that the Rockefeller Institute is
made in New York. He says that nerve fibers contract in a wave-like movement, and
to move nutrients from the e nuclei in the brain and the spinal cord. You suspect that
the nutrient e feed not only the nerve fibers, but also perhaps the muscles at the
nerve endings. They came to the conclusion that the nerve fibers from the current
perspective, seem to form a plastic, flexible system that is able to repair defects or
damages.
In the case you describe, the man has a sprain suffered in a particular area, the
stimuli sends back to the spinal cord and the brain receives input in return - from Th
Alamus and the other fields
- Via the spinal cord.There has been a change in the pattern within this injury, which
is the specifi c point of injury relatively neutral, calm or quiet. However, the muscle
fibers involved extend beyond and beneath these quiet area. The origins of the
psoas muscle extend all the way from the twelfth thoracic vertebra s down to the
fifth en lumbar, and then of the psoas passes through the pelvis and is the trochanter
of the femur to minus. Therefore, there is irritation above and below.
II-139
REB: That it yet. The area was quiet and signaling that he needed help.
TLR: Why then developed the adjacent area this enormous spasm, while this area
blocked will appear?
REB: Because the adjacent areas are at the end of the lever. You said that
Irritation was on the twelfth en fin, almost at the point of origin and the area of
Silence was lower. The irritation was expressed at the end of the lever over to the
quiet spot where it was relatively quiet. If you can feel on the other side of the psoas
muscle had, where the lesser trochanter attaches it - the place is hard to fi nd - you
were there probably as much increase sensations photosensitivity and irritation
found.
TLR: When I walked by the psoas muscle, seemed the pattern diff user and to be
less clear, even though I could still make a spasm.
REB: Rather than call it a point of silence, let us rather say that he is a
Reference point from which you the image as above, below and around it exists
analyze can. Of course you've got to do it with a three-dimensional object, but let us
here on this piece of paper only once in a two-record. I draw a rectangle with two
long and two short sides and if I connect the corners with diagonal lines, we fi nd the
center of the rectangle where the lines intersect, and call it the relative neutral point
for this given situation. Next, I draw a rhombus of the same size, except that the

short sides are slanted. Then I draw the diagonal, crossed lines in the Rhombus. I
have drawn the rhombus below the rectangle and if we fell down a lot of the relative
neutral point of the rectangle, we see that in the case of the rhombus has postponed
the crossing point.
The square would be the normal pattern that may get a shock in either direction
and return to the neutral state. But if a hit at the top of the rectangle would be
performed, in order to generate enough power distortion, which can not resolve on
its own, there would be a shift of the pattern within this two-dimensional object.
This induced by trauma Rhombusmuster that exists now would, in this II-141

TLR: Would it be correct to say that these issues also reflect those points where
lines force or force vectors equally to this area to act?
REB: That would depend on the continuity of the tissue and on the tissues involved.
TLR: With the help of these varying reference points I can see if these tissues have
responded to a force or a load, and the energy that was put into it, represented by
distortion, etc., is actually trapped energy, right?
REB: Yes, it is trapped energy.
TLR: And the mechanism that can lead to the solution, which can take a long time,
could then be manifest in a twitch which can not be determined for the clinician. And
that would establish a pattern whereby ...
REB: But the convulsions from which this article is mentioned, probably represent
only the Eff ect constitutes They are the ends of the lever and represent the points
out in the periphery.. They do not represent the points in the center. They represent
the points out here at the end of the lever.
TLR: Let me ask you something times. It may be that we are talking about the same
thing, only seen from different perspectives. Could it be that the
Point of silence that's what you feel in the clinical examination, while II-143
NEN, clinically a reference point. This point represents the entire image of the whole
pattern - at this point the whole picture can be accessed. The other peripheral points
are the Eff ects. It is a point of silence, but he represents an enormous kinetic
energy.
Let's think about the fact included physics, because we owned actually beschft
us all these things with a problem of physics. Whether we now talk about the human
cell structure or this table in front of us, is completely indifferent - we arrive at a
discussion on energy levels.
Let's look at an arbitrary muscle cell, a single cell, which in turn is made up of
millions of molecules. We have a cell and many molecules, but we do not yet have
still point. Each molecule is made up of atoms and the atoms are composed of a

nucleus and electrons. Heard this molecule to the heavier elements, the nucleus will
include many neutrons and protons, and many fields circling electrons would be
present.
All these elements express energy. Where is herein called the point of
Silence? In fact, it is due to the physics of energy. The potential energy is localized
in the captured energy that hold the neutrons and protons within the nucleus and
electrons this field stabilize. It is not the neutrons or protons themselves - they
merely express the energy.
We can take this energy concept and return to our spasm of the psoas muscle in
the biological field. We said that in an injury enough force put to a normal pattern in
a pattern of limitation on
transform that can dissuade a force field from its normal Lot or its normal energy
exchange. It keeps this energy at a given point - and keeps them captive. The closer
you get to the actual point at which the energy is trapped, the closer you are to the
point of silence. It is impossible to perceive it with a machine. We have no machine
that is for empfi ndlich enough, including the electromyograph.
We take the distortions of the true energies, as they appear in the periphery, but
we can not make up the point where its center is. This requires a knowledgeable
awareness and an accurate perception that you can develop. I can feel no point of
silence, but I can perceive with my touch the area that makes up the point at which
the energy field is blocked in this particular area. And I can also perceive how the
Eff ects that we have in the periphery of this diseased muscle, spirally spread from
that point.
II-145
costs, corresponding to the amount of energy that is expressed in this field of
silence.
TLR: How manifest this energy?
REB: If your touch delves deeper into this area, it feels as if the area offer resistance.
He is quiet, yes, but he feels as if he had built a protective wall around and do not
want to let in yourself. TLR: This protective wall is not the same as the spasm on the
edge?
REB: Oh no. We are talking about a wall of pure energy. Place your
Elbows out of here on the table. Now press constantly against my hand and I do not
resist - I let you push away my hand. But if I instead with the same amount of energy
that you put back pressures, we will reach a point of balance and the relative power
will be equal to zero.
At this point, the rest within this spasm, is blocked energy.
While you do komprimierst, you feel that there is a resistance to your used force.
But you komprimierst on until you feel that thou art adjusted the amount of energy
within this quiet area. Through this

Action you have reached a state where a void is created or the energy is neutralized
within this point of silence. This you have reached a point at which it can carry out a
change.
TLR: I reinforce the tension in this area do not, when I push it?
REB: No. It's true, you komprimierst an area which is already compressed, but do
you use a controlled force. You must be sensitive enough to feel the amount of
energy that expresses itself as an energy field, and compress it up to the point where
you can feel that it is relatively neutral. The relative power is now equal to zero, as
with us, as you and I have pressed against each other's hands. The strange thing is
that you if you approach this relatively quiet area and finally will reach the point at
which the energy field is balanced in the tissues begin to feel like the end of the II147
created as if it rotates out of this area relative silence in and out and winds. It feels
as though relay to these peripheral structures, an organized effort be undertaken the movement is no longer random.
While you build the compression on this relatively quiet point, fi nd an off
ensichtliche shift in the pattern instead. You've been sitting there with a feeling of a
muscular contraction or train and then suddenly takes this traumatic psoas muscle
mechanism, the pattern away from you. He begins to literally, to wind up. You lose
unspezifi cal kind of feeling and feeling a specifi cal pattern of motility. It is now a
specifi c type of movement. She feels as if she says, " Hey I have the time now
under control, Doc, you let your hand there while I start working. "
Despite your contact and pressure, the patient will not complain.With him off is as
much his Enbar going on, but it no longer hurts him. That's because it seems into it
and into it, and go in, to wound himself and comes closer and closer to the core of
the specifi c pattern of this particular problem. After a while, seems to be a slight
shift in the share stattzufi ends, at the core of the whole thing and then it unrolls
again specifi cally. The patient makes a change by then clinically. Would you invest
in the traumatic event your hands at both ends of the psoas muscle, where you feel
the irritation, you could sit there all day and nothing
would happen. It would perhaps feel good to massage him, but he would not
change.
TLR: This is what happened in fact in the case I described. I did just that and he
went out basically the same way as he had come.
REB: That's right. You'll reach medically nothing if you do not have your hands in
the correct range, even though you might not've come to the point of silence,
because you can not always feel it. Sometimes, in cases of severe trauma, are in it
a friend in shock, it is hard to fi nd, but you do your best to nd a range to fi. You can
watch be sure you've arrived when you nd this specifi c type of motility fi - the only
way to describe it is that it seems as if the diseased muscle this problem from you
take away and say, " I have it now in his hand. "You have the feeling that he says:"
I am the boss now. "He gives you this feeling, while this small II-149

compensate, causes Sichverzweigen existing, functioning neuromuscular junctions.


These branches migrate to the adjacent muscle bundles, which were cut off from
their innervation, and then those muscles to fire very quickly due to a physiological
mechanism and tire easily.
REB: That is consistent with what I wanted to say with my text. I talked about energy
fields in which to act muscles, ligaments, blood vessels, lymph vessels, nerve supply
and subcutaneous tissue as a unit. Considering this unit, manifested changes and
respond to the effects of trauma. I fi nd, you did very well formulated: She has
captured this energy areas in it, who want to maintain their pattern.
TLR: We have developed these ideas only for traumatic conditions.
As it is, if you have a disease - for example this case, from which I told you, with the
acutely ill man with abnormal liver function, for we could not find any reason? I felt
his liver and it was unremarkable. I've never really falciforme the movement of the
liver on the ligament, as you described it, can feel. This altered function: It was drawn
to energy or absorbed energy? I mean, what mechanism would be involved in the
changes of disease processes and how are you feeling it? Do you find there that
points to the silence?
REB: I do believe that they have been. At least I thought in those cases where I
have worked, that I would have to put it so.
TLR: they reacted?
REB: They responded. In the case of your patient the captive energy was perhaps
triggered by a viral infection. One idea I have is that bacteria are smaller than cells
and they represent from the standpoint of energy fields seen a different energy
frequency. A cell will have a certain energy frequency, but this small bacterium will
have a higher, much faster frequency energy and a virus is even smaller, so it has
an even higher frequency energy.
Thus, when entering a nucleus in a cell, there is a modifi cation of the energy field
within that cell, which is sick then, because of this external force - II-151
on the plinth standing feet, so I sit down on his knees and my other arm can cross
put over them. In this way I set the power directly to the psoas when I practice a little
compression on his knees, along the hip s. Then I can sit there and my hand, which
is below the edge in this area up and move down until I point the relative silence fi
nd.
I sit there and wait until either its tissues a normal sense of rhythmic movement to
show - you can always tell by going on the healthy side, and there looks, how it feels
- or a sense of unspezifi rule, random movement. If I feel a change in movement, I
try to get to the point where this problem comes from alone in swing. Then at least I
know that I am near the village, can be reached from which something, both in
diagnosis and in treatment. Then I sit there until I a feel change, no complete
change, only change. I fi nd this change not above with reference to the irritated

points below, but at the point where this thing sits crouches in itself, and the
peripheral ends I leave himself.
TLR: After you have triggered a change in how you stand on the application of moist
heat to what you started, continue to be solved?
REB: Sometimes I suggest that moist heat or aspirin or muscle relaxants if they
complain too much, just to keep them happy.
TLR: Has the real value?
REB: It has some value because even though a change has taken place, the whole
pattern has to change. Just because you have effected a change, the area is not
suddenly normal. It has to nd a complete redistribution of this entire pattern stattfi.
The lymphatic vessels and veins must be emptied completely; the Nevenversorgung
must improve and delete some of the old impulses.
TLR: So despite the fact that you have released the energy needed time to recover.

10. Acute and chronic responses to trauma


Revised copy of a 1966 recorded on audio cassette series of conversations
between Dr. Becker and his son Donald Becker, MD
The original recording of Donald Becker's requ age does not exist, so this
summary will be provided.
DLB: My question, which I sent to Dad, referring to a 48-year-old man who had
suffered many thoracic, cervical and lumbar traumas without clear fractures in a
serious car accident. The radiographs were negative, but he developed four weeks
after the accident, a fairly heavy right-hand Bicepssehnen tendonitis and nerve root
symptoms on the same side. He also complained about pain during the procedure.
My questions to Dad were, first, if I have done something wrong because my
treatment has caused pain, and secondly, why he had no signs of arthritis or
narrowing of the foramina nerve root symptoms. I also made the remark: " I use the
word whiplash, but I do not like the word. If you do not mind, I'd prefer to call it acute
cervical sprain. The word whiplash's very pictorially but been so often abused that it
contains an emotional rather than a fact-based implication. "
REB: Before I answer your questions regarding the whiplash case, there are a few
other things that I will repeat for you, because I have to explain these things out from
the anatomical-physiological knowledge of the tissue involved. I read in one of my
science union magazine s an article on atomic physics and one of the quotes from
Robert Oppenheimer was: " This
Documents, despite all diversity, off enbaren a common belief. All authors
recognize that we do not understand the nature of matter, neither the laws that
regulate them, nor the language with which they should be described. "
My sense is that we are handicapped in the biological sciences as well s. You can
see from the documents that I sent you what a huge problem I have when I try to fi
nd a language, in the II-155
Spinal cord all the way down to the sacrum, where they then fixed tacking on the
second sacral segment et. In addition brings each of the spinal nerve roots as they
exit the intervertebral foramina a sheath of dura, arachnoid and pia mit.23
Using this information we can, I believe, explains why fi nd why your patient and
others develop a whiplash irritation of the nerve roots weeks after their initial injuries.
I use times another practical example to illustrate my point: If a tic douloureux or
trigeminal neuralgia, which occurred after a difficult tooth extraction, we fi nd a
temporal bone with a restricted range of motion on the side of tic douloureux. The
tentorium forms a fold that a dural sheath around the large trigeminal nerve formed
at the place where he is the trigeminal cavum. If a traumatic stress has occurred,
we fi nd that these dural sheath was blocked in its functioning to the trigeminal
ganglion around. There is a disturbance of the liquid displacement in and around
this ganglion and a trophic disorder
because the dural membrane was lashed. So the patient develops gradually
neuropathy in the trigeminal ganglion and the symptoms of tic douloureux in face.

I can feel very clearly, because a spin room has a blocking of the entire dural
mechanism result and a restriction of the dural loading
mobility, both in the dural tube hanging around the spinal cord and the dura inner
periosteal as well as in the dural sheaths of nerve roots, which extend through the
foramina outward. The free, normal mobility of the dural mechanism - both the

State will emerge as before. If necessary, give them a painkiller and let them
complain further and keep working with them until you achieve the change that you
want to have.
The hardest part in this process of working with the sense of touch, the feel and
analyze the Gewebsbeschaff enheit, this feeling for working with the anatomical and
physiological units in the diagnosis or treatment program is our sense of
interpretation - that is, to know what the do tissue within their functional capacity.
The only way to learn is to do what you are doing already, and in cases where it
attached to use in your practice. This interpretation flair to win - this sense of a
functional analysis in terms of what the fabric do and accomplish
try as well in terms of what you have achieved at some point in the treatment - is a
real problem for the practitioner. It can only be solved by you work with your own
innate ability to feel, understand and interpret, until you finally, the rules are quite
clear and you gain an insight regarding their use. The point is to learn,
how the body responds to different problems and how these are to be interpreted in
terms of tissue function. And it's also about understanding how much time is needed
to achieve in the existing pathology a tissue change, so that one can assess the
treatment results.
DLB: I would like our debate on the symptoms of nerve root symptoms extend from
the acute or subacute phase of whiplash in a situation where the original injury
remained untreated for years. I am currently such a problem in one of our good
friends.
The friend is 50 years old and ten years ago he was trapped under a car, with a
considerable weight on the lateral neck. He was fine until six months ago, where he
noticed a small Nackensteifi gkeit. He could not completely turn his neck, but that

did not bother him very much. In the last two months he has developed a numbness
of the first three fingers on the same side where the car had pressed on him. The
deafness is so strong that he can hold little or grab what is very problematic for him
because he works as a mechanic in a factory. He paresthesia, but little pain,
suggesting an involvement of the posterior than the anterior nerve roots more. A
replay of the cervical spine shows a narrowing of the foramina II-159
which has all the mechanism for action driven and localized in the cervical region,
where there was already a trauma.
To answer your question: I believe with certainty that the structural changes are a
result of trophic changes over the years. But in order to explain and to understand
that, we must go much deeper than just the nerve roots and the dural pathology. We
have to go into the fundamental mechanics of tissue function that is uids in perfect
fluid communication with all Krperfl. I go back to Dr. AT Still and quote:
"What is the goal of the movement of bones, muscles and ligaments, which so on the
strength of nerve. Aufh old? A very hufi ge answer is, all the rooms to ff NEN, transport
the elements of life and movement through the nerves, veins and arteries. If that's your
answer, you're far from a response that is based on the knowledge of the basic principles
of life in a living organism and the method to repair parts, organs, limbs or the whole
system ... we would take until the renewal by we stimulated the lymph and give her the
time their work to meet the atomization of all garbage mountains ... So we change the
position of a bone, muscle or belt to give the liquids freedom uid to Liquef the retained
material and carry away. So we allow nature to rebuild the destroyed environment again.
... We need to know if we want to succeed as a healing that normal is not easy to bring
bones to their normal position, so that the muscles and ligaments to their ancestral places
in freedom can work. Behind all this there is still to solve a larger question, namely how
and when the chemicals of life are to be applied for the purposes of nature. " 24
We may update these dating from the 1908 terminology of Dr. AT Still, as we use the
last paragraph of the article on the mechanisms of death, whom thou hast sent me. The
author says: " We can only speculate, but I look at all this in terms of the fundamental
power. A concept that pleases me is that all of us, man or mouse, are equipped to live at
conception with a certain capacity, an inherited stock of biochemical energy, if one so
wishes. "
In my article I have named this biochemical energy "bioenergy" and a dozen other
names. Lately I have as "contraceptives

necessarily the subtle approach of Tidenkontrolle use the I use. You can view the
type of functional technology use, the Harold Hoover taught you, or a technique
that I will describe to you now.
Basically, you take a contact with all tissues and feel to the movement pattern in
the direction in which they would like to go. For your patients with the sore neck you
do if you supported with your hands his head and neck and deep feeling in the

cervical muscles and through them, would be able to feel that the affected area
tends easily in one as in the to rotate different direction. If you feel that you reinforce
the patterns of dysfunction and gently take it in the direction in which it would like to
go. While you are working with items that idea of bioenergy always keep in your
thoughts. Feel for the Tide, which is deeply present in these tissues, and try this
endpoint that you have already recognized, to feel. Working with it, seems to have
to change, or a feeling of release within the tissue occurred.
This requires only five to ten minutes a predetermined area.
In summary, I would go in there and a deep, seeking

these tissues while they pass through different threading tail movements, and trying
to make a point to fi nd where a balance or a Fulkrumpunkt shows where a comfort
point are in a friend. If you lead it in this particular position, says the patient lying on
the treatment table, often: " It feels really good. "This is really a Fulkrumpunkt deep
within the physiology of the tissue and the patient feels comfortable there. You hold
it then there a few minutes, while the Tide and their bio-mechanisms are focused
there. They bring about the change that they would like to perform at that particular
time.
In this kind of case I'd long handle is generally a few weeks twice a week to get
organized that thing, and then reduce weekly at once. You're working on in these
intervals until these old chronic Dsyfunktionen a unique lesion and some correction
stattfi over and the patient begins to feel better. In a chronic case, as you describe
it, is usually within five to six
Weeks a satisfactory change in direction symptom reduction II-163
Would allow tissue to assess his problem again and to bring about a normalization.
As Dr. Sutherland to tell me pfl EGTE, there is no specifi c technology - it is a
question of understanding. He said: If you understand your mechanism, the
technique is simple. Your art is your tool to take advantage of a more normalized
mechanism within the function of the tissue.

Position and it dissolved and gave way. Again, she felt much better immediately and
walked out satisfied. I have seen her again last week and similar happened, but this
time her head was not as before in the usual position. She said she had a few
headaches and did not feel okay, but when I thought of the many cases of whiplash,
I have seen and the three weeks had nothing to do, and here she was, and walked
around almost painless then surprised me. I also happen to her pelvis balanced and
worked on her shoulder blades. If you had any comments on the treatment of
whiplash-dysfunction with Sidebending, I would be very welcome.
Now I would, if I may, like to make a few comments about what you are doing both
in your teaching and in your research. I say
"Research," because it's basically what you're doing. I've been thinking about for
some time and already considered on several occasions to make these comments.
You've put in a dilemma, as I understand it. You have mainly tried to write about this
material and to teach in a language that people can understand on skill and
experience without your degree, have tried to develop a terminology and certain
phrases that allow individuals to actually get an idea of get what you talking about.
It is an enormous task to describe this type of material; it is like trying to describe
the color blue. But I believe that this should not be your only job. The other side of
the coin is that you what you are doing, should resign in a writing union manuscript
or a tape recording, in the terminology that you want to use and you understand.
This would have several advantages. First, you'd benefited animals because you
could finally free to make you and tell you what you wanted. You would get some
recorded without lter it to fi expressed in the way that you think is right for this
material. It would be as if you were talking to you about myself or with someone who
is well versed and could fully understand it. It would also be beneficial for people in
the future, which could study this material in the language that you have chosen.
You know, they understand it not at the moment, but it may be that there is seen in
20 years from now from II-167
fibers and shorten its duration. But he had not come; He came to get rid of his back
pain. So I gave him as much to treat as was necessary to give him the relief he
wanted to procure for s, and he went on his way rejoicing. In my opinion, he should
have stayed with me, but in his opinion, was everything he had come. I firmly believe
that 99 out of 100 of your patients come to you because of these chronic problems,
relief of their symptoms erhoff s. That's all they want from me - a new compensation
their dysfunction pattern to feel good point, and then they want to leave it until the
next time it.
Nevertheless, I want to make this observation: As we are all only compensation
pattern, it is not necessary to be great endeavor to do more than what the patient
wants. It's ok, a new compensation for a case to fi nd up to the point where good
fishing there ends, and then to accept that all of this is to support what is needed at
this time. Despite the fact that most of my patients come to me just to get relief from
their symptoms, I am reassured, because I know that each treatment I admit, has a
correction of the whole mechanism result, in addition to facilitating of the symptoms.

I just have to accept that the patient not so long stay with me until I have treated
their problem entirely.
The tremendous results that you have achieved in the woman with whiplash, are
something that can be expected for acute problems. I am very glad that you had the
opportunity to treat an acute problem and the Krft e could feel so actively at work
as they are. They work just as in chronic cases, but on a much more subtle level.
If you start to apply this fundamental approach, fi nd you in all cases of whiplash
in addition to the physiological changes in the tissues force vectors pointing in the
direction of impact. If you have passed the still point or the end point in each
treatment with this woman, this force were factors dissolved along with the
physiological changes in the tissue. These force fields were resolved so quickly that
they do not
Month had to carry around, as well as other patients have to do it. In other words:
You returned to the biosphere of their own being, and therefore did not need their
lives a unidirectionally aligned force vector field like a bullet on a chain herschleifen
behind.
I have so often observed. It's always an interesting observation, this II-169
anschaltest action. You'll see a constructive change in a few weeks by the patient
reaches nd a certain degree of good fishing. In a typical case such as this, you can
have him maybe in a month or two to send away, when this area feels good again
for him. When this happens,
will learn to use his arm with a certain sense of health and he will no longer have
this narrow sense and the pain it. But that's not the end of the process. Long after
you've released him, the healing will continue. A year later, you would when you
examine the range less fibrosis vorfi ends, because the healing process gradually
normalized the problem after you have given him the strength to make the pathology
reversed towards normalization. Tissue heal in their own time and their own space;
We use this process only in transition.
So those are my comments to your both cases and for Hausarztsein.
Source of power
Next, I want to give you a short lesson in basic Feel. They mainly include research,
so it accept easily, turn it on, try it out and let me know how it turned out.
We are equipped with, and surrounded by part of a biosphere. With others
Words: My body moves through time and space in the world of 1967, surrounded by
a biosphere of activity that keeps me alive, including a source of strength. Where is
this power source? I do not know and it's not important, but it's there. It is around
you and to each patient who comes into your practice.
Now, just for fun, imagine this power source like a cloud before that hangs over
your practice building. Make it a cloud that hangs over you. Next, keep in mind that
this source of strength or cloud can be compared to an electrical source, hindurchfl
ow through the continuous 110 volts. This electricity is always there, always
available, but is used or not used, depending on whether or not someone
einstpselt. Even if you're stuck not the plug into the socket, the Energiefl USS is
still there - he works.

If you einstpselst you, you can use specifi cally this electricity. It is like a tool that
you have, an electric drill that has a switch that you can turn on and.
II-171
If you have a bit of fun on this thing and want to play around with it, you can even
try the following: put your hand under a patient, build a Fulkrumpunkt on large up
and then turn on the source of power, boom, just like that. Feel how your sense of
touch immediately perceives more than at the time when the source of power was
not turned on, and feel a deliberate response to the problem at hand. It will be the
way easier if you try it with a problem, that contains a little vitality. Turn then, while
you're standing still in contact with this process, the source of

immediately on what you learn. You do not have to make the very long;
approximately in 30 seconds you can evaluate it. I recommend not to use this onand-off signals at anyone who comes in your practice. I suggest that before only for
your personal assessment of this approach.
I proposed the idea of a power source of the Working Group last week. I could
now speculate how well they have received it and what they do with it, but I will not
do. Don, this is one way you can improve your basic contact. Only that's why I
mentioned it. Unlock the power of a are turned on in the knowledge that both you
and the patient. Try it and let me know your reaction.
Following are excerpts from two in succession resulting tapes with messages from
Dr. Becker to his son.
I want you to do me a favor. I want that you undertake you the last cassette that I
sent you, and all the information that I have given you "The source of the power

preparatory material. I have a similar terminology used on site talking to some of my
colleagues who work with me, and I am not at all happy with their interpretation of
what I was trying to say, and even of her reaction or her understanding. To me that
means that I would have been able to express clearly.
I am glad that you are using the Source of strength. I also know that you have

12 levels of palpation
Revised copy of about 1967 tape-recorded correspondence between Dr. Becker
and his son, Donald Becker, MD
REB: Don, I have two things I would like to share with you. The first comes from a
preface which I wrote for material publ entlicht
will be. The second is a short version of the art of palpation. Middle of the night, this
idea has come to me when I tried ends herauszufi how to describe better by setting
function-structure and structure-function in the anatomy-physiology, the art of
palpation. I hope e, that will be helpful for others who want to gain a deeper insight
into the anatomy physiology.
Here is the quote from the preface:
This font en by William G. Sutherland, DO, to which reading you now have the unique
opportunity to illustrate the fundamental principles of osteopathy .... One of the important
principles in osteopathy is the fact that the structure and function in the clinical
assessment of the patient can not be separated from each other .... It is an accepted
maxim that structure determines function, and it does not take much reflection or
discussion to realize that this dictum is true. It is also true that the function determines the
structure. However, this idea requires a much more extensive analysis, in terms of their
full significance in the practical application.
While the forming time of conception to physical maturity and particularly in the early
months and years, has a growing structural development of the body considerable infl
uence on the functioning of the maturing mind and body.
For example, a perinatal physical Strainmuster is Ussen infl all still evolving, physical
and mental pattern of the child throughout his life through. A pelvic tilt, a scoliotic spine
and a sunken Th ORAX lead to a corresponding misplacement of it are in photosensitive
bodies and change the function of these structures from so that they meet the needs of
the patient. Illness or consequences of trauma in a child's body, such as Perthes disease,
change the pelvic function and the resulting hervorgehenChapter 12 - levels palpation II-175
Ulna, the eight carpal bones, five metacarpal bones and all the phalanges. These
are surrounded by muscles, ligaments and tendon sheaths and covered by skin and
all these tissues are bathed through and through in the fluids of the body. The upper
limb is loaded with thousands of nerve endings, particularly in the palmar surfaces
of the fingers, with nerves that reach up through the deeper structures, up to the top
to the brachial plexus, the cervical spine and upper thoracic spine.
We have in the surface of the skin a surface che chige group of nerve endings,
for palpatory touch. We also have deeper proprioceptive fibers, whose function is to
allow us to determine the position of our hand or our arm in the total respect of where
in space we place them straight. In order to develop our palpatory touch, you need
both the surface fuzziness and degrades nervous for keys as well as the deeper
proprioceptive fibers with all the muscles and ligaments, from the fingertips all the
way up to the shoulder belt use.
Take time for practice, a simple ball in a hand. Ertaste his

Rounding with your hand, with your fingertips, with the palmar surface of the hand
itself. Watch the Beschaff enheit and consistency. For this you use the surface che
contact your hand and the muscles of the hands to determine the qualities and
Beschaff enheit of the ball that you have canceled.
Bring now to add something to the palpatory sense, the proprioceptive fibers into
play, from the spinal cord and the shoulder girdle to hand. Make you realize that you
feel the ball with his entire limb, not only through the hand contact, and immediately
you notice a - compared to the experience of the ball-fingering by pure hand contact
- totally different, deeper ability to sense this same small ball.
At this moment I think a pack of cigarettes in my hand. It is a rectangular box that
is filled with 20 cigarettes. But if I feel the deeper with the whole extremity insets,
while I hold the same package with as little pressure as I would only hold in my hand,
I am aware that I added to the sense of a sense of three-dimensionality. I feel as if
I'm passing through the whole package rather than just keep the surface che the
pack. That's the first step: adding when touched the object that you keep the
proprioceptive sense of the entire upper extremity and shoulder girdle with.
The second step consists of the entire upper limb and the shoulder

Shoulder girdle downward. If you add the compression, you hit your hand is not
necessarily up to the fabric, but are practicing only on Fulkrumpunkt compression,
so as to bring an even deeper layer of evaluation in the overall picture. In this way
you win three different reviews of the same object that you examine. You can try on
anything and everything this. You can when you examine each object in whom you
put your hands or with which you want to work, use all three or any of these access
levels.

any tissue that he wants to portray to represent. The master fulcrum can
almost be compared to a master spiral for the whole mechanism, with
hundreds of smaller for the individual functions.
Back to my problem. I've found that if I the master
Fulcrum approach use, not business as usual can work without
berzubehandeln the patients there. My current approach is to put the
patient on the treatment table, with his feet against the board at the bottom.
Then I put my hands gently with a hand gesture on parietal, Initiate a small
action in the Tide of cerebrospinal fluid and put me to rest, to locate the
commands of the master Fulkrums and follow. There are two steps,
of which I am beginning to believe that they are superfl uous - the first is to
lift the feet against the foot, and the other is to initiate the Tide. However, in
order to proceed, I fi nd that any problem in the fascial membranous,
osseous, autonomic or central nervous system - wherever in the body
mechanism
- Starts seem to come to the fore, then to work, his non-physiological factors
for this day dissolves and alternately soothes in the short rhythmic
fluctuation lateral and AP (anteroposterior). If I instead use the approach I
learned from Dr. Anna Slocum, my patients have as much to process in the
next few days, you feel quite uncomfortable.
It is much more truth in this master fulcrum approach can be described or
discussed. I am aware of being in the presence of him,
what makes us work. The knowledge of that with which I work, creates a feeling of
something so overwhelming that in applying the science of
Osteopathy all my values have to be revised. My philosophy is that the
master fulcrum can do no wrong, that it will work at all times for the benefit
of patients. It has such a potential that I feel, but can not understand.
Well, that expresses my problem out as accurate as I can there currently.
I would be grateful for a few words from you. I am simplifying this approach
too much? Can you give me a hint, how do I get a deeper insight into that
with which I am working? Am I on the right track or on the wrong track?
If this sounds confused, it is likely that it is. All I know is that my patients
make some nice progress. But I want to know why and how to continue the
service, which should be met with them.
II-181
Some demystifications (correct me if I'm wrong):
God, formless and without pattern
Spirit

All subdivisions below the master Fulkrums are merely manifestations of
the master Fulkrums in action. A shifted fulcrum is not the cause of a
dysfunction pattern is diagnosed. It's just a manifestation of the cause. The
subdivisions under each heading could continue indefinitely.
If you zoom performs a particular case to the master fulcrum as close as
possible, it is given an opportunity to co-folding and unfolding in a pattern
that is closer to the master fulcrum than before.

could have another Plauderstunde, because it's hard to get them down on
paper. I always get it FT my signals of silence, including the

mechanism and realize the "Boss" has come home.

I have been invited, before the New York Academy of Osteopathy on the
pathophysiology of the cervical spine, including the cervicodorsalen
To transition and pretracheal trains, speak. I would like to highlight the reciprocal
Balanced voltage in the normal state and in the dysfunction ....
I've thought so that I build my presentation to three key messages around
that I have read in Carl McConnell's article on ventral technique that is used
to bring out the inherent breath of life to the living tissue. McConnell says:
II-185
I suggest the following observation to substantiate my claim.
When I teach my patients to a point somewhere in the Fulkrumlinie
represented by the straight line in the drawing above, it is so similar to the
conductor who brings the orchestra in a moment of silence before the
symphony begins. Then fi nd instead of the intricate unfolding and refolding
the pattern of liquids, fascia and tissue activities and responses during the
period that followed, and finally there is a fusion within the entire mechanism
and an end " in the fullness of the Tide " . That's the point where I said to
you that the boss had come home and I could finish the treatment. All
activity fi nd place behind the curtain, and mixing is not necessary. Some
orchestrations have a pretty violent nature and some are the most beautiful
sonatas that you ever heard. But all through this moment of silence when
the conductor with his baton knocks and demands attention, initiated. I think
I begin this moment of silence to fi nd that initiates the first movement.
Some accompanying observations: This is what I've believed, stand as
outdated, namely that there are four stages of the fluid mechanism: 1)
organization of the liquid, 2) focusing on the liquid, 3) moment of silence
and 4) balancing a new pattern. This mechanism applies to the liquids,
fascia, ligaments, etc., but they are Fulkrumpunkte on the top or the bottom,
and only some of the harmonies within the range of symphonies of the body.
That's all. Your comment and your correction be eagerly anticipated.
December 7, 1951 response from Dr. Sutherland
Everything was in harmony as a perfect joint. Your "Boss" has as a "conductor"
certainly a "moment of silence observed" by the "peace we on
Earth "recognized. In this reference, fi nd you my "comment" that you expect, "have
so" eager. The idea was " very appreciated. "

our patients. The consequent manifestations surpassed my expectations. I

Ardath asks me, what I said yesterday to interpret in term s that they can
understand, and to try to scotch the rubble. So here it is:
MeerUmUns: light, an eternal ever-existing light unit.
Light or unit is a constant cause of balance. It manifests itself in electrical currents,
tides, myriads to exchanging pattern in constant
Move; all these expressions are centered by constant light, potency, cause.
The breath of life is the individual spark of light, centered individuals. One
of his qualities within the individual manifests itself as knowledge.
Knowledge of the totality of light allowed a proper assessment of the
perpetually shifting, perpetually changing pattern. The patterns are just
tools, manifested in the movement; the cause is within the light, Fulkrums.
The breath of life centered individuals. If we use the quality of knowledge,
we as clinicians a knowledge of the totality of the human body. The ever
changing patterns of liquid - including the cerebrospinal fluid, the
diaphragms, fascia, bone tissue and organized tissue - exchange
experiences in innumerable, changing patterns in response to the inherent
light which knows only the balance. The cerebrospinal fluid has an even
more important role in the transformation of the breath of life or light into
electrical and other qualities that are needed by the chemical physical body.
The Krpersft e express the products of this transformation process in
exchange of their myriads of patterns of movement, always in search of
balance.
The osteopathic practitioner, as a mechanic science of knowledge, has a
knowledge of the totality of the patient, who stands before him. Therefore,
he has, because he can grasp the whole picture, to assess the ability the
items properly. After all, anything that you see on a sensory level, hear and
feel is merely a tool and as a tool to respond to the automatically shifting to
floating Fulkren within the body. The Fulkren in turn by light, the breath of
life, potency and an unchangeable
Oneness centered that the mechanic, is through knowledge that complete
and correct picture. The Breath of Life is a unifying factor for the entire
mechanism.
Perfect health is a balanced exchange between the individual II-189
Dysfunctions corrected. I had to go down and rescue the Atlas separately,
but the rest of the mechanism was free. All the while, the assistant doctor
said, " My goodness, did you see that, did you feel that? "The baby was
cyanotic.
Excellent results up to this moment, but the work was only half done. I
could not make out whether the battery "juice" contained sufficient. The
physical battery was pretty decent, but the breath of life was not completely
present. I turned the baby on its side and gently put two fingers on the

occiput and two on the sacrum. After about five minutes he stretched in an
extension position and came forward again and immediately the breath of
life began to function and the sacrum and the occiput were as warm as they
should be. The edema on the headphones aut began withdrawing,
breathing baby was like that of a child, the oxygen gets and vernnft him
strength recycled, and the skullcap ceased to rise with each breath and
lowering the child fi ng on to cry, left hand ff designated and joined and the
left hand cyanosis subsided. The baby was cyanotic, but that was just a little
something. The intern fi Elen eyes almost out of his head.
The baby was given for the next 18 hours oxygen (because of course, the
Hospital laurels einheimsen). The next morning, they placed the child in the
mother's chest. The child was beautiful rosy. His left side was moving
normally and he reached for his mother's breast, as if he had three days to
get anything to eat, which was probably the case. The charge of the case
Doctor did not call me to acknowledge the change, the medical assistant but stayed
in touch with me and said the baby had no more trouble.
This is an important detail of this story, to be sure that the breath of life is
in full control before you finished that particular treatment to the patient. I
have taken into account this factor in all treatments since then, and of
course I could write to you daily: " Did you ever have seen anything? "It was
all the work of the last eight years worth to be able to the small child and so
many others that I see in my daily practice, to render this service. We are in
the osteopathic profession profoundly grateful for the knowledge that you've

You have not taken us in her arms, as you claimed in the 'light beam of the
lighthouse ": The main arena is the lake ; the space between them ; we VIII-191
not even in the deepest parts of the abyss that is not the mysterious Krft e that the
Generate Tide, knows and you respond. "33
The MeerUmUns is perceptible in each patient and in each event of life.
It's real and you can know it. The resulting tide can be felt by sentient fingers
and knowing senses. Knowing about them and their potency, while your
fingers have a gentle s, but significant contact, allows the practitioner to
realize that here the source of the mysterious Krft e is producing the Tide.
What is the source? I dont know. I as a therapist
just know that I am when I think the view of the sea and not on
resulting tides, currents, eddy currents and waves hold, " in the belt,
Sailor, place and the Tide to the seashore ride "can. 34
What is a doctor necessary? That is the question that caused me trouble
without end. You and Adah (Ms. Sutherland) and I were sitting together in
a hotel in Milwaukee and the MeerUmUns did his work. I have seen,
how it has been working on another without using the hands of a
practitioner. I suspect the answer lies in the fact that we live in a primary
sensory world and the practitioner is characterized by its contact as the
captain of the boat. His steady hand to help his knowledge of the elements

in this situation and his Reining infl uence to make the journey more
comfortable, and if the trip is over, he knows that it's safe for the journey at
sea. A therapist is necessary, especially in this electric universe, but he
should have the "mysterious Krft e that generate the Tide" know and
always let in treating of each case, they do the work. Let us therefore call
the breath of life this mysterious force and hold it.

I recently found the notebook that dad used to teach the principles, and
made it through thoroughly seen. What one catches the eye is the fact that
he, the Th ema thoroughly and edited in detail, but has nevertheless
presented in a population that shows that he really captured the whole
problem. His approach worked a total of as an introduction to the questions:
What is at present the case you wrong? Where is the cause? What is the
diagnosis? Why is this area a normal and there with a dysfunction pattern?
Diagnosis, diagnosis of the cause. Treatment fi nd place, but the emphasis
is on the question: Why is this patient ill?
Maybe I am wrong, but I believe that the what Still thought comes closer erapie as
"structural theory." True or false?
One more thought. When I Nachlas for my Colorado-lecture on the fascia, I
stumbled upon the statement in stills philosophy of osteopathy :
"When you're dealing with the fascia, you have it with the branches of the brain,
with the general law of co-operation, to do with the brain itself, why you do not
treat them with the same respect?" 35
This statement inspired me many times to study. The special
Behavior of the fascia and ligaments when you her to Fulkrumpunkt
Stress pattern forwards and observed the tissue as its final, smoothing
analytical pattern which is inherent to that pattern, accepts and thus
continues to carry out its own inherent correction in your hands while you
sit there and looking the coming one to think that the brain in your hands,

and the fascia have the ability, regardless of muscles, organs, bones, or
what ever you to include function. That would be an interpretation of the
idea of the "extension of the brain." But then again have the fascia and all
the other containers of the body of the position of the automatically shifting
Fulkrums within the individual mechanism or body proportion obey, and
changes that you in initiating the inherent healing correction of the body feel,
and the act of correction themselves are dynamic Eff ects that stattfi ends
because the "cause" was found and the Shifting fulcrum corrects the
mechanism. In this interpretation, the brain and the fascia are one and the
same, but both are tools that can be used in the dynamics of physiological
functioning.

- because the going gets tough.
In any case, the manual change of the frequency, direction and amplitude
of the LCS are summarized as: An expression of non-invasive surgical
ability to ensure balance in the laws that are associated with the fluid
mechanism, or " the laws that do not by human hands are marked "to

I thought you were maybe interested Emen to a summary of the theory,
which we have discussed in Denver, and to their use during these few days
at home. So, they worked one hundred percent all the time.
Needless to say my gratitude to you people exceeds (Will and Adah
Sutherland) against all words. Fortunately, you know, I think, how deep we
empfi in this respect ends, so we leave it at that Ardath and I thank you.
One of the things that I ect the refl got stuck about our discussions was the fact
that you, Will, in my little picture of a liquid body, which is surrounded by a membrane
and contains a bony mechanism, the energy source have separated.

... Here's an idea for my upcoming lecture on the fascia of the heart and
circulatory systems. The circulatory system is mainly a floating mechanism,
from the heart to the capillaries and back, supported by a fascial frame
construct that must be free in order to ensure a normal action. The
pericardium is supported by the processus styloidei above and the central
tendon of the diaphragm and below by the ligamentous extensions of
Manubrium and processus xyphoideus. It floats. From this starting point it goes on
and on.
I recently figured out what must have been maybe this many years for a
really lonely man you, Will. You have to Still, McConnell and the other on
the wheel hub or at the fulcrum if you prefer, sit and have observed how the
wheels turned, crunched the sand in the gears and as friction developed
between and among those of us who thought we stopped at fulcrum, while
in reality we were most fascinated by the bright lights and the action in the
periphery. I know that it was so. And how did you manage it and how
creative you st to mobilize as patience in the face of so much awkward
foraging to maintain posture? I say this because I got to feel a small portion
of this solitude in recent weeks even to a small degree, when I tried a
seemingly interested cranial group to show some of the material that has
been taught in Denver. Tom Schooleys lecture went past them like a cloud
in the
Night.She was never seen, probably due to my weak presentation. And
how much did she would not understand if they were exposed to some of
the material that you have given me?
BUT, my patients are using this greater knowledge has come into contact
through the application of its principles as best as I could, and the results
were just as, of which you spoke. " Wait till you see some of these fr
appierenden results in your practice , "said Dr. Sutherland and he was right.
The MeerUmUns is evident in every one of us, at all times and it swells in
any case and manifests itself in a size that is similar to the sky. Yes, you've
been lonely, but it's a wonder to me that you have found so many words to
describe the fulcrum and its manifestations, just like you've done it and it
still continues doing so well. Stay here. We love it.

From the One God, the breath of life comes the image of spirals from
Breath of life for the perfect expression of rhythmic balanced interchange are
centered.
Since all material manifestations - the human being, the environment and
his relationship with his fellow man - the same breath of life are centered,

which brings all the components of his life in this central space allows the
breath of life of a new, focused on perfection balance, to to manifest.
In each individual and his environment is the ability to center itself in this
common center or if it is necessary to seek help through other (the
therapist). The dentist has the expertise to center the patient, because the
same breath of life centered all life.
Because the breath of life is the same as the space that shapes the
universe can manifest itself only a more perfect dynamic balance in the
patient when it is brought into a rhythmically balanced exchange with the
breath of life.
The Breath of Life provides laws which, to express the pattern and the
energy in the form of tides erschaff s the pattern. The pattern and its material
manifestations of energy waves are as numerous as the infinite. All come
from the same breath of life and return to the same.
Knowing that there are laws and patterns in these spaces, and the ability
to change these laws and patterns and express a more pronounced
rhythmic patterns are balanced, ends in the same "space" to fi.
Yes, Will, your "rooms" and the breath of life are POTENCY in application, in
knowledge and ready to be used NOW.
The same old story. I hope e, I told a little clearer.

Listen you to the song of a discouraged man, and when you read it, then burn and
forget it.

First, to my personal problems. As Dr .----------- has treated me in 1950 in


Des Moines, I went for five months through hell until the load physically and
mentally finally lifted and I was able to swim free again. In January this year
she treated me again in Kirksville and since then I have constant problems
with my sacral mechanism, and although it does not put me back in the
depressed state, the time I was delivered five months, it has not gone good
for me. The only relief I achieve if I a
Take time out and say " Shut up. "It helps for a while. The other time I got
a bit of relief when Sam Hitch gave me a treatment, but even then he could
not solve or see results in the patterns it until I in

II-203
men and go out of the way. She is still symptom free. Why does the pattern
does not dissolve? I make mistakes in my local diagnosis? Should I treat
locally? If I do that, which produces poor results, but I treat them by the
breath of life, she is from the symptoms forth good, but off ensichtliche
pattern remains. Why?
Another woman has a serious history with a frontal concussion seven
years ago and last year she had a nervous breakdown. Your doctor says
she hysterical problem problems with her second husband, etc. - the usual
misinformation that we through the conventional
Get approaches. They reacted quite remarkable on the breath of life, but
every time it is treated, there is a abrupt, shifted to verschiebendes fulcrum
that does not want to come to the boss home. What time element is present
in this problem? Why not come home and stay at home? It stayed there for
three weeks at home; then went out of focus and stays there. Why? Why?
Why?
So it goes with any work that I'm doing. I feel like the preacher in the Bible:
. All vanity and plenty of costumes to the Wind "The patients are happy,
my business is growing and my colleagues think I'm crazy - but give me a
call so I diagnose their more difficult cases, and I'm going through hell while
trying to put my findings into understandable words for them. Terminology
does not explain what I fi nd. My "cranial" colleagues fi nd wonderful. If they
knew what kind of a mess I'm in, they would change their minds.
I see so many things to be learned. I see so much in the modern
diagnostic methods and findings, I have to unlearn. I can not coordinate with
those who I see in the living organism my laboratory findings. And I can not
trust even my physical thoughts about their problems no longer collect or
through my contact information sufficient to satisfy the multiple patterns of
which I know that they exist. In addition, I have not adequately learned the
art of listening and not understanding of that from which I know that it is the
right knowledge, that I should get.
I treat in order to achieve the best results, the patient goes to the breath
of life and a new pattern emerges, NOW . I understand the old is not

particularly good and the new is inconceivable that matter Plan knft
strength treatments. In other words, none of the physical attributes,
including thought, is working with the breath of life. Where is the answer?
II-205
A questionable case: A lady retired 15 years ago a rotational injury when
she during a car accident between the front and rear seats of your vehicle
fi el She was then hospitalized, got a plaster, was then treated for six months
orthopedic and returned. FINISH to their Beschft as a dancer. However,
due to ongoing problems in the lumbar region it was in the following years,
several times to the doctor. Three years ago she married a millionaire and
since then it has been visited by one coast to the other, a total of ten
orthopedic specialists, none of whom was able to explain their lower back
pain and the feeling of insecurity in this area. The many corsets and the
many exercises had no particular infl uence.
My impression is that it operates from a fulcrum, if you can call it that,
which is about two feet anterior their physical anatomy and is located in a
room against her lumbar region. " Well, that's a fine diagnosis, doctor , "any
intelligent science would Liche doctor say. " What exactly the hell do you
mean? "Nevertheless, I describe just what I have observed, as the still point
passed in a lull. She reported immediate relief after treatment, and has for
the first time Hoff tion that perhaps something can be done for them.
Comment: The Breath of Life operates in the eternal NOW. The lady
manifested a fulcrum that for years has existed, and the symptoms are
physical patterns that allows this fulcrum in now, as a result of gradual
Adjustment of physiological functional processes to meet the fulcrum. I told
her that I had the shock, the rat runs 15 years ago treated. When the breath
of life can solve the induced fulcrum or dissolve, they will return in the form
without patterns that she had earlier, and the complex of symptoms will
disappear.
Bloody words. They do not express what I want to say. I believe that we
can live without pattern freest in an expression, equipped and maintained
by the breath of life. Other patterns are sometimes imposed on us ends on
our well-fishing and as long as this act, we adapt to it. The power of
expression, it was illness or stress related, comes from the same source,
but it is not in balance with what God wants for us. These induced pattern
in the hands of God to bring the breath of life, allowed His patternless
expression to manifest again. The
Element of time is related to the breath of life irrelevant. The physical, II-207
the SILENCE occur, depending on the problem, and in a few minutes, the picture
changes significantly material and always in the direction of freedom.
I try to emphasize an important point that these underlying TIDE is
universal, without defi nition, and that it has no real connection to the
problems. It's like the glass house that you described in Kirksville: " The
Breath of Life or the TIDE not affect the house, lit it, however, by refl ect
through and through. "

It is sufficient to TIDE at work to look at - that's the reality. What needs to


be done, rather than fi nd because the material products are only a refl
ection of their source. The complex products of medical science must
submit to the decisions of the TIDE and the intelligence to understand the
complex products of the material manifestation, is one of the quid pro quo
of TIDE.
Enough, enough! Is it possible to perceive the TIDE? Is it possible to rely
on the diagnosis and treatment fully on the TIDE? The TIDE will deliver the
highest-quality medicine available to the people in his earthly life available?
August 11, 1953
The pretty enthusiastic card I zusendete you on July 31 - " What a
fulcrum! Great! "- I've made a momentary whim sent and they will be able
to better express the feelings that I want to convey, than the present letter.
Until July 31, there have been many times where me the Tide of the course
Has led diagnosis and treatment for the breath of life - the moment of
silence by the whole closer to the Creator stands as breathing. On July 31,
and after that we start, apparently deliberately, from a still point and radiate
outwards to unfold the whole pattern. On the one hand we come from the
periphery to the center and on the other hand, we start at the center and go
to the outside. Does it make sense?
Ardath expressed that she felt " consistently as liquid "on. Another patient,
who is very attuned, reported that it had once had the feeling during a
previous treatment, to have been worked from the outside in, and had come
to a point where they stand closer to the Creator than breathing. This
happened only when administered by many treatments. When it happened
again in the next treatment after 31 July, she reported it begin II-209
The Orthodox, our well-known authorities proper physiological understanding does
not fit to what unfolds in this patient.
Another difficulty: My previous concepts do not fit into what happened. My
so-called knowledge of the principles involved graces modifi ed or must be
modifi to recognize what is happening.
All this makes sense or am I crazy?
Your breath of life is a living principle and can be summoned at will to
produce in this patient unfolding of a normal physiological pattern in a
normal anatomical mechanism. That is a priority. The tensions,
dysfunctions and expressed non-physiological pathology to be replaced or
transmuted into Normal - the tensions are not converted to normal, but the
norm replaced the problem. I have the impression that the potency that is
released from the breath of life, is converted into the cerebrospinal fluid,
which in turn the primary respiratory mechanism activated, then the
secondary mechanism modifi ed so I divide not arbitrary. It's all a gentle
expression he breath of life and its existence-Off enbarung on the physical
planes.
What do you think of this mess? It's definitely fun to know it and to use it,
and the nice thing is: the breath of life seems to have overall responsibility

for the whole process. I hope e it anyway. I would be reluctant to carry out
some of these changes, I at the pace
stattfi ends see where this inherent potency it accomplishes.

... PS There seems to be a universal pulse or a fluctuation that comes
after the Still Point and has no relation to physical liquid or fascialligamentous mechanism. He seems to have the same frequency in all
people, including children and can be seen before entering the "Still Point",
but even more apparent after the boss has spoken. You want a statement
so determined not confirm or
contradict, or?

your postscript - except that you usually right.

But I know that in the conversion process, if the boss into it enters the
fulcrum, much more happening than just a loss of dysfunction pattern.
There is a rebirth, a regeneration of the physical, mental and emotional
structure. For me it's like the world, of which we spoke in Denver, a world
with the overall ability to completely constant functioning. She is calm,
serene, forever and can be measured objectively and subjectively. Just ask
the patient. He why not feel like a "new person." And? He is it.
March 29, 1954
This message serves to report a signifi cant change in my application of
the science of osteopathy. My attention is through the "cranial" colleagues
with whom I had to do it lately, been drawn to it. We talked and I note that I
can not understand clearly, as if I had ever skilful.
I'm in that I rate my cases, by looking for the quantity and quality of light
in them, and by this same breath of life, a problem is solved, the physically,
mentally, emotionally, or a combination thereof is reflected. When I talk to
these other DO's and working on them, it is a limiting factor to decide which
pattern or which shift from membranous or ligamentous articular
mechanisms exists when off Obviously not manifest the breath of life its full
potency. And why should we not turn to him to allow the physiological
functioning, to manifest his unfailing potency?
A case or two in order to illustrate this. 1) A 26-year-old woman, for five
Married years, with strong vaginal Desk USS - painful and irritating for four
years. Three treatments to correct a disturbed breath of life in the pelvic
region, and the USS Desk has disappeared. Only once I turned to Beck lift.
In all three treatments, I watched from the sacrum, like the breath of life in
the pelvic region regained its full strength and potency. 2) They brought me
a woman who was half crazy and about to receive a shock therapy. It was
off Obviously, that she was held at the sacrum. Five minutes later it broke

up and she has since had no more complaints. She had been since a
miscarriage six months ago so. 3) A chronic case of depression - a driedup field, who had received ten electric shock treatments, was back to normal
within a few weeks.
II-213
can resolve specific error. What is the relationship between this mechanical error
and the powerful breath of life?
The things that I write about, I have observed without announcements or
verbal preparation of the patient and the result for the continued health is
much more successful than any other approach to the healing arts.
Question my patients. I do not discuss this with them; they are content to
know that they are healthy.
PS I remember a thought: Could we call life as a vital mechanical, mental
and emotional bodies, which preferably operates in a silent breath of life?
Stress from the environment at any stage or in a combination of phases a
fulcrum of light is formed, which provides the potency with which this fulcrum
can maintain its pattern. The
Light is neutral with respect to the reasons why or what these stressors are
produced or received, but the light is the fulcrum and the force that
manifests from it, comes from the force received by the pattern. This applies
to the emotional level as well as mental and physical, because as soon as
any
Change is made in the fulcrum, change all three of their manifestations. In
the correction of Fulkrums by the light that is centered, the whole of the body
unit manifests itself again in a silent breath of life as a unit in the normal
health.
Local stress areas are only maintained until the opportunity to return to the
common reservoir of a common breath of life
results again.
The ideal is a silent sea of light. Less than ideal are small waves or Auffl
plow in the temporary manifestations of the pattern as opposed to
breastfeeding MeerUmUns.

I am the other day a thought came while I was treating a patient, and it
was all about a remark you made to some of us in Chicago, when we show
the South Pacifi c viewed. The curtain partially concealed one of the scenes
of the play, and your comment was that you wanted to you, the veil would
cover the scene of the action completely. The remark was referring to the
fact that if in the cranial mechanism, the curtain (the curtain, to which I am

The note on my card that I wrote to remind me to write to you about this idea is:

country when you replace worn by Wicke. <
I think you understand what I mean. I have two patients who have already
been completely depleted fields for many years. You now have broad
symptom complexes and when I examine them, I would say, the breath of
life operates within a variable mechanism and fi nd enormous renewing
changes within their entire body instead. A comment to my last suggestion
would be appreciated.

We had a busy summer, and it looks to continue like this, we would not
have the time to do the things we would like to do - how to get all weeds
from the lawn to stay calm, to pay all the bills and the understand fulcrum.
A remark about the fulcrum: the world of flair and its patterns do not
respond to the fulcrum. A shift in the fulcrum (and I mean fulcrum with a
bold "F") creates a new pattern. It's not only a change in the old pattern the old has gone. A new pattern has manifested itself in the world of flair
and design. The reason why I talk about it is, that one of our "cranial"
colleague is ill for some time and I have dealt with him daily. Since he is one
of us, he has the idea that I should follow his patterns, to achieve results,
but if I do, nothing happens, which will help him. It occurs to me that if the
fulcrum shifts, there has been a correction. He continues to follow the
changes in the pattern and writes the improvements to those. I note that a
change in the fulcrum has new patterns result. His health returns. One of us
is naturally confused - I think that I am.
... A new DO recently came by to an extensive discussion of the Arii-217
zeptieren what there is of good or for accessing any person with whom I
come in contact, and I know that each one of us somewhere on the divine
path are in over and that those who, in relation to these truths that are clear
to me seem to be blind just had not been so lucky as me. There are certainly
many more advanced souls who view my effort than that of a kindergarten
child, but the further one progresses, the more tolerant they are, so it does
not bother me.
I know exactly what you mean - the old story, "to be science Lich" with
regard to a spiritual truth. I wish I'd words except "spiritually" know - the
associations that have been so, it restricts. The indwelling Spirit - the word

whom you do not declare can - you can not make contact point fi nd everything you can therefore do is, to live it and allow the Indwelling
presence to guide you in your work. I know you do, and what people say

Diplomas is also called the beginning of the task. To me it seems as if I were ever
at the beginning.
The enormous task that " laws that were not erected by human hands "to make it
clear 45, we more and more aware. We will have to take an entirely new terminology
in words rather describes the function as the final products. Today's laws describe
the final product, not the process that has produced it, and beschft Wills laws cent
with the processes that produce these end products. What a field for research!
Where to begin?How to keep the whole picture in mind while one factor after another
is added? How steadily integrating everything, while a piece after another is added
to complete the picture? How to learn it, to circumvent dead ends, or rather: How do
you stay on the main road and leads an adequate examination of all the streets
through which feed it? A very nice piece of work.

In a lecture at the Academy ( of Applied Osteopathy ) on the last Friday I had an
experience that I want to pass on to you. 78 doctors were entered for a three-day
meeting and the meeting en en was on Friday night in two
Divided groups, one to talk about Dr. Angus Cathie "frozen shoulder" to hear, and
the other to hear Becker talk about "Stills Palpationsprinzipien". Approximately 25

The first quote pointed out that the motor Krft e already act in the living anatomy,
and the second quote said that only I have to set the loom in motion, and the noise
pattern will be my observation palpatory off enbaren.
Finally, I instructed them, in their palpatory investigation actively and to be working
with the living anatomy and the physiological changes that stattfi ends under her
hands. Those who stayed for the practical exercise, everyone could feel the living

anatomy and stattfi ndenden corrections while working. These corrections take
place incidentally usually within the first ten minutes of any treatment.
The essential point of this brief summary is as follows: Practitioners handler do
not like to be confronted with a new terminology. They want clear explanations in
the language they use in their daily practice. Therefore, I intend not to use in knft
cent discussions of stills or Sutherland's basic principles of anatomy and physiology
and the palpatory skills that are needed to bring these principles to clinical
application, the term "diagnostic touch".
The material that I sent you yet, is valid.It is easy to use after you you a knowing
have appropriated sense of touch, and gives you virtually wholly owned control for
each medical problem during the patient visit. It keeps you up to date on the
therapeutic progress, improvement or deterioration and allows maximum
reversibility of symptoms related to the given state. Even if you should not believe a
trained health care professional with a modern understanding that reversibility is
possible, this approach could be helpful.
Irreversible problems do not resolve themselves by themselves, and you'll gain and
find out why they do not react insight into these things.

simple, primary way throughout the body, whether it is at rest or in motion are in

their full potential through my patient's treatment, the arbitrary mechanisms to be

Feel free to use the paragraph on the voluntary and involuntary mobility and
motility of the human body. It is as a clinical entity that is to be literally used in the
diagnosis and treatment, a virtually unknown factor within the profession. The
"cranial" group has learned about it in terms of the primary respiratory mechanism,
but there they listen mostly to. If you use them at all, they look at you in thoughts
and actions not in terms of overall body physiology.

You've got me thinking ... about our colleagues in the cranial region, these "do not
understand a foreign language." I think it has always been difficult to accept that the
"Fluid Drive, which was brought by a spark of the breath of life in action, the true
fundamental principle of the primary respiratory mechanism is. Fluid Drive, the
movable central nervous system, the Sutherland fulcrum and the reciprocal tension
membrane and the cranial bones and the sacrum, which are all taken, depend on

this "spark" and the resulting fluid Drive. I give our colleagues not to blame. It's a
tough nut to crack, though it is just as Will said.
... PS We all, including all of our colleagues who have used these principles in our
treatment programs, because that is the only way it can work. It was much more
difficult to accept, and to see why it works this way.

Dear Dr. -----, by C. Hartmann.]
Your very interesting letter and her manuscript call for a comment, but I are in
hands me in a dilemma, how to answer you. I have painted a sketch that George
Laughlin has me given on the last night I spent in Kirksville.
He asked me: " Is not there a fundamental potency in each of us, representing the
overall health of the individual? "My answer
was: " Yes. In fact, it is so that you, if you study the people under your hands and
reads to pass on its fundamental Potency, discover,
that she wants to go into action. And both the potency of the disease,
as well as traumatic Potency then tend to dissolve, leaving only the
fundamental potency to the task of aufr real attitude of health continue.
"He nodded his head and that was the end of the discussion.
There is a fundamental potency, which is so clearly felt for an
intelligent touch, as the potency of an injury or an illness. The Potencys
of disease or trauma are easier to fi nd because they work in a more or
less specific focus, depending on the disturbance of the patient.
The fundamental Potency is there and this potency is dominant in
every respect. They can be perceived with all diagnostic and therapeutic
pursuit and brought into action.

Mid-1960
Dear Dr .---,
I remembered about two weeks ago something that you should
consider. The fact that it took 34 years of clinical experience in order to
produce this idea does not mean that all maturing periods must be long.
The idea is basically this: There is in every individual consumer patterns
or functional dynamics that exist individually for this person and no other
on earth.
Just as there are homeostatic control of the general body systems
that allow only a physiological function within certain limits, and just as
we immune responses to all foreign cells that invade our bodies, have,
there is a postural unit, a dynamic attitude pattern that each each specifi
cally is our own. This is a dynamic functional model.

This attitude pattern begins prenatally in the formation of the body


within the physical environment of the uterus. The pattern is further
changed by the birth process. It continues to develop during the years
of growth from infancy to childhood to adults. It includes any cell of the
musculoskeletal system and connective tissue, each cell of the entire
frame with a construct and trained itself in this postural to be for that
particular individual matching unit in structure and function.
In the general body systems and their immune response to foreign
substances, any deviation from normal physiological functioning leads
to an immediate physical and chemical reaction on hormonal pathways
to restore homeostasis. The body reacts similarly to any event that
brings the body in the functioning of his normal posture pattern and
immediately making an effort to correct the problem. He is working to
restore normal function pattern which is incorporated into the connective
tissue framework construct as well as in the muscles and ligaments
enclosed therein and the bony skeleton around which this mechanism
was formed.
To make this transfer in the clinical field, one might look at a group of
patients with dysfunction of the fifth lumbar vertebra en, the auto draw. The Cranial Rhythmic Impulse is undoubtedly a physical
manifestation of Vitalkrft e in use, but the observations described far
beyond these CRI addition. "

logical states perfected, I noticed that the patient did not try to
understand how I worked; for them it was of interest to achieve results
that alleviated or solved their problems. As I took my hands and my
silent partner in contact with the area of complaint, I plunged into the
reason for their difficulties. In this way I could, instead of explaining to
them "as" I work, explain "why" they had their problems. And that
satisfied them.
... Study the accompanying documents and it will help you to
understand what we will do when you come next January after Dallas,
and to experiment with it. It is a method that an alwaysconfidence-ending demands. Let yourself both time and not complicate it.
You have the rest of your life to master it.

Dear Dr .----------,
Thank you for the copy of your Mauskriptes that you sent me ... I
agree with you in principle, that it is necessary to take the working
energy field with the involved in somatic dysfunction physical parts.
However, both the energy field and the tissue involvement are only ects
Eff and not causes ...
In the last part of your manuscript, you talk about it, to manipulate this
energy field. If I were to achieve the same outcomes as the one you

describe, so I had to ask myself: " Do I have this energy field


manipulated or I have this energy field while watching how it carried out
changes? "Let take me in a picture: A twisted fishing line with a small
sinker to it or a twisted telephone cables go with distorted
Energy fields associated. I hold the fishing line or the telephone line is
high and the cords entwine and correct the alignment and distorted

Dear Dr .-----,
... Yes, all your practice life and probably life itself follows a new path - and
that's wonderful.
Allow me to quote WG Sutherland:
" The inherent physiological function to allow to develop their unfailing
potency, applied rather than blind external force .... A potency that has an
internal intelligence. "54
When I anfi ng, to work by applying the basic principles that were
given to us by Drs. Still and Sutherland with the internal resources of
the patient, I had the same problem with patients who were charged too
much or too little and turned me either or have leached. I asked Dr.
Sutherland then and he said, " That's true and it's not necessary. You
have the right to protect yourself: "He did not tell me how.
Over the years I learned that I have a silent partner, a source and my
patient has a breastfeeding partner and his or her source - a source that
provided me with all the potency that I need to walk the earth, the same
Potency wearing my patient also in itself.
I therefore agree with me on my silent partner first, and then in all
Silence, through my silent partner, I tune into the Pacific Partner of the
patient and propose that the breastfeeding partner of the patient prior to
use its own source of his potency needs.

because I was too charged or discharged. My source and its source are

Dear Dr .------,
I am glad that you so interested in the science of osteopathy
... I add some on to basic material that allows me "to understand the
mechanism," in preparation for a "technology" for the purpose of
treatment.
First, the Grunddefi comes nition of science of osteopathy in a
Paragraph I read Autobiography in Dr. Stills and unreservedly accepted
habe.55 I Stills description of my disposal living mechanism, I for my
diagnosis and treatment use can be accepted. I had practiced until then
for ten years and was general OMT56 them in the understanding and
clinical results as flawed. Then I discovered this paragraph, gave my
general OMT to and used the content of the defi nition to develop my
knowledge and the vitality of the body to use physiology and the body's
self-correction towards health that comes from within.
The key is to accept without a doubt what is written in the paragraph
in order to develop an internal degree of palpatorischem skill with which
you can read the body physiology of the patient and " the (the patient)
inherent physiological function allows her unfailing potency to develop,
apply instead of the outside blind violence. "(WG Sutherland)
... I have applied this approach through the last 42 years, and am still
learning. The moment when a patient enters my office, I will for student
who "inner doctor" of the patient, the teacher and his / her body
physiology is the vital instrument by which to learn my palpatory skills
on that particular day "the to understand mechanism ". Once I have
established contacts with the hands and the body, I start to feel, listen
to quiet, to actively witness without judgment, which manifests the inner
doctor and the body physiology of the patient through my palpatory
contacts. If this diagnostic treatment is finished, I can my
