There are two key systems that work in unison to control the body’s welfare. One is your blood capillary system, by which your blood supplies nourishment to every cell, and the other is your Autonomic Nervous System, which manages the delivery process.

Health is based on maintaining equilibrium within the body by promoting the normal life processes of the cells. Optimum health requires the blood capillary system, facilitated by the Autonomic Nervous System, to deliver food and oxygen to the cells unobstructed.

If there is any interference with normal capillary circulation, the cells don’t receive the required nutrition. And if that happens, the waste products of cell metabolism accumulate around the cell due to lack of fluid movement. In injury or illness, the cells cannot function normally until normal blood fluid movement is established and maintained. But it’s at this point that the Autonomic Nervous System sends an alert to seek help.

The individual has no conscious control over the Autonomic Nervous System. It is silent when the body is healthy. However, when the autonomic nerves are disturbed in a gland or organ, they will signal their distress to the body’s surface as pain.

Specific areas of such pain reflect which internal organs are not getting proper nerve and blood supply. When an organ is disturbed, certain areas on the skin become sore or painful indicating a blockage of nerve and blood circulation. It has been found that gentle manual stimulation of certain of these areas can promote blood flow and bring relief and healing.

Neurovascular Dynamics


Over 26 contact (or reflex) points have been mapped for this system, known as Neurovascular Dynamics.* By the manual stimulation of these points, we are able to restore blood fluid movement to the organs and muscles for a more normal function. Stimulation is accomplished by mild hand pressure on different reflex points. The patient feels no discomfort while under treatment, but rather a deep relaxation.

The immediate effect of treatment is dilation of minute blood vessels located within the organs supplying the necessary oxygen and nutrient material. Once this is achieved, health improves and the patient’s symptoms are alleviated.

The number of treatments necessary to experience enhanced health depends on each patient’s medical history, organ function and individual reactions.

Neurovascular Dynamics has had good success with many functional internal disorders as well as difficult neck and back conditions that have not responded to standard medical or chiropractic methods. For individuals with difficult health challenges, do not assume you have done all you can for your health until you have explored Neurovascular Dynamics.

*Formerly known as Bennett Reflex or Autonomic Nerve Control, Neurovascular Dynamics was developed by Dr. Terrance Bennett, D.C. in the 1930’s, who mapped the 26 contact points used in its application.
