Contact Reflex Analysis or CRA is based on applied kinesiology which uses body reflexes to assist doctors in managing a patient's condition. CRA helps determine the origin of the disease, whether structural or emotional.

The Contact Reflex Analysis is based on 75 known reflex zones in the skin representing various organs, glands, and bone structures. The nervous system of the body is made up of miles and miles of nerves that carry electricity and are connected to every organ, gland, muscle, and tissue.

When the body becomes sick, the nerve energy of this reflex is disturbed. During the test, the reflex behaves like an overloaded switch. To test the reflex, the practitioner uses the arm muscles as a "chain" indicator.

When the practitioner's fingertips approach or touch a healthy reflex, the arm muscles remain very strong, indicating that the nerve energy is flowing freely. Weak hands indicate that nervous energy is disturbed.

How do emotions affect our health? This is what the neuro-emotional technique is trying to figure out. Emotions like fear, anger, and sadness can have a negative impact on us.

When our bodies fail to get rid of these emotions, we can find ourselves with unexplained disgust, and many chronic physical problems. Your doctor can identify these emotions and help you get rid of any "stuck" emotional patterns.
