We use a unique form of analysis known as "Contact Reflex Analysis."

Fill out a symptom survey to determine if our natural methods may help you.

Contact Reflex Analysis, also known as CRA®, is a simple safe, natural method of analyzing the body's structural, physical and nutritional needs. A deficiency in any of these areas could cause or contribute to various acute or chronic health problems.

CRA is not a method of diagnosis. It is a means by which the body's own reflexes are used to accurately determine the root cause of a health problem.

CRA is also a marvelous preventative technique used to find a problem before it becomes a full blown health issue. Find it early and correct it.

CRA Reveals the Root of a Health Problem

Many times the symptoms of a health problem are treated while the actual source of the problem continues to go undetected. For example, headaches are treated with aspirin, coughs are treated with cough medicine. If these symptom persist, expensive tests are run and stronger medications are prescribed. But the question still remains. What's causing the headache? What's causing the cough?

There is hope. CRA is different. CRA quickly and accurately uncovers the root of the health problem and provides answers for correcting it.

Procedure of Contact Reflex Analysis

Hundreds of miles of nerves carry electrical energy and connect with every organ, gland, muscle and tissue. There are approximately 75 known reflex areas on the skin which represent various organs, glands and bone structures. It is believed that when the body becomes ill there is an interruption of nerve energy to these reflexes. The reflex, when tested, will act similar to a circuit breaker under an overload.

To test a reflex, the CRA practitioner will use the person's arm muscle (or any other muscle) as a "circuit" indicator. When the practitioner's fingertip comes near or touches a healthy reflex, the arm muscle will remain very strong. Nerve energy is flowing freely. The practitioner will not be able to push the person's arm down without exerting a lot of force.

However, if the arm muscle is suddenly weak, and the practitioner can easily push the person's arm down, a "hot circuit breaker" has been located. The nerve energy has been interrupted. Using this reflex information, the practitioner will know if the problem is structural, physical or nutritional.

When nutritional deficiencies are uncovered, an exact nutritional support can be given to help the body heal. (Note: if the deficiency has a structural component which cannot be helped by nutrition or nutrition alone, this can also be determined so that steps can be taken to get these corrected as well.)

Deficiencies and Illness

A structural deficiency could inhibit the necessary flow of energy and nutrition to specific organs, muscles, glands ... thus causing a problem.

Physical deficiencies are caused by environmental agents such as chemicals, parasites, viruses and bacteria that attack the body and make it sick. Proper nutrition needs to be given to strengthen and/or support the problem area.

Health authorities are finally admitting that good nutrition is important to good health.

Natural Health Professionals continue to prove that most health disorders share the same root problems: improper body function, brought about by nutritional deficiencies and life-style.

CRA is Accurate

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 could not detect it.

Until CRA, the methods of determining the body's structural, physical and nutritional needs were costly, time consuming and at times frightening. The only method of determining a nutritional need was by a person's symptoms, expensive lab work, and the doctor's knowledge of biochemistry, physiology and nutrition. An educated guess was made.

Now with CRA, the educated guess is no longer necessary. CRA is the finest natural method of guiding the practitioner to the root of the problem.

With CRA, the practitioner is also able to prove to the person that the source of the problem has been located, and the proper nutritional support and/or structural procedure has been given.

Amazing Facts About Your Body

  • Except for your brain cells, 50,000,000 of the cells in your body will have died and been replaced with others while you have been reading this sentence.
  • The adult heart beats about 40,000,000 times a year. In one hour, the heart works hard enough to produce enough energy to raise almost one ton of weight one yard from the ground.
  • The liver is often called the body's chemical factory. Scientists have counted 500 different liver functions.
  • The central nervous system is connected to every part of the body by 43 pairs of nerves. Twelve pairs got to and from the brain, and 31 go from the spinal cord. There are nearly 45 miles of nerves running through our body.
  • Messages travel along the nerves as electrical impulses. The fastest they travel is about 248 miles per hour.
  • In one square inch of skin, there are four yards of nerve fibers, 1300 nerve cells, 100 sweat glands, 3 million cells and three yards of blood vessels.

The point behind all these facts is that your body is a wonderful, complex creation. Like a machine, all of its parts (organs, glands, muscles and tissues) must be in good working condition. Its electrical system (nervous system) must be carrying energy smoothly to all areas. There must not be any short circuits. Finally, it must be fueled with the proper nutritional to keep it function, alive and well.

CRA is Used in Many Health Professions

CRA was researched and developed by Dr. Richard Versendaal, D.C. along with an M.D., a clinical nutritionist, a dentist, and a hematologist during the past 30 years. CRA has been taught in continuing education seminars across the United States to all health professionals for over 25 years. There are health professionals all across the country who are proficient in CRA.
