Contact Reflex Analysis

Contact reflex analysis (CRA), developed by Dr. Dick Versendaal more than 40 years ago, addresses a chronic medical condition, an emotion that won’t resolve or a desire to have vitality in an increasingly unhealthy world of drugs and surgery. In combating a feeling of hopelessness by using the body’s own reflexes and kinesiology to determine an assessment pattern, much can be learned about the imbalances that have led to weakness and ill health. He says, “Teach people how to manage their health, not their disease, so they will achieve much more!” The body is a miracle, and is fully capable of healing itself the default setting is full health. We must uncover any imbalances and apply a simple plan to re-establish balance.

The three basic reflexes, or doorways into the discovery of the body, are emotional, biochemical and structural. When these three corners of the triangle are in balance, health is achieved. CRA analysis helps determine which one is running too fast, running too slow, or is blocked. The CRA practitioner “asks the body” or tests the reflexes for the first priority or primary, followed by the secondary and tertiary answers that will begin to bring balance and health to a situation.

Versendaal calls a stuck emotion that is causing ill health a broken heart. He describes the heart is the queen bee that will take an energy hit when something unexpected or painful happens. Even a severe injury can lock the heart into an emotion. The tools for returning balance can be the use of a specific supplement, essential oil combination or a chiropractic adjustment. All these tools can unlock a blockage or interference of the body’s default setting of vitality and health.

Some people use CRA as a way to remain healthy and avoid the road to chronic disease, while some seek an answer to a longstanding condition.
