Contact Reflex Analysis
What is CONTACT REFLEX ANALYSIS (CRA)?
Simply stated, Contact Reflex Analysis or CRA is a safe and natural method that analyzes the energy that flows through every organ, gland and cell in the body. A shift in muscle strength is used as an indicator of energy balance or imbalance in a particular area. Energy imbalance is the cause of disease in the body. The goal is to determine the means by which the energy is brought back into balance so healing can occur. Too much or too little energy may indicate an imbalance in your body’s structure, nutritional chemistry or emotional status. An imbalance or deficiency in any of these areas could cause or contribute to various acute or chronic health problems.
Dr. Dick Versendaal, founder of CRA
The traditional CRA method utilizes a practitioner who typically applies a single, downward push on the wrist of a patient’s outstretched arm while also making a contact with a specific reflex point on the patient’s body. The gentle, but firm push is like a subtle “question” and the muscle reactivity response is the “answer.” There is a subtle shift of energy that is detected through the muscle when an area of imbalance is found.
A great degree of accuracy is possible with CRA. It will even uncover deficiencies at a sub-clinical level; that is when the problem is so tiny that the person may not be aware of it and many modern methods of testing cannot detect it.
Dr. James Beno has had extensive training in CRA and continues to increase his knowledge in this area of expertise.
