What The Heck Is B.E.S.T.?
Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (aka B.E.S.T.) - A Self-directed Health and Healing Method
Disease is usually associated with the body
doing something it is designed to do, but at the wrong time (not good!). B.E.S.T. is a healing method/system that synchronizes the body. With B.E.S.T., all body systems (immune,
cardiovascular, endocrine, digestive, respiratory, excretory, nervous, etc.)
are balanced and the body begins to respond to stimulation from your
environment, internally and externally, according to present need (good!).
I am Andrea Willoughby, a Master B.E.S.T. Practitioner, and I specialize in bringing the gentle, healing touch of B.E.S.T. to women, men, and children. B.E.S.T. was developed over 40 years ago by Dr. MT Morter III, an intuitive and forward thinking chiropractor. Dr. Morter drew his formal education in chemistry, anatomy and physiology, prior to becoming a chiropractor. His research, development and refinement of B.E.S.T. continued until his passing in 2013. His children and grandchildren, all chiropractors, continue teaching B.E.S.T. to practitioners of all kinds around the world. It is now practiced worldwide and brings great healing and excitement to those lucky enough to experience B.E.S.T.
How It Works:
The B.E.S.T. procedure addresses the whole person, not just a condition or specific part. We
humans are three-dimensional beings - a body, a mind, and a spirit. The B.E.S.T. procedure restores “coherence”
to these three levels. Pain and disease are associated with a lack of
coherence, or communication, at these levels. Psycho-neuroimmunology is a
developing field that recognizes that the mind (psycho) affects the nervous
system (neuro) and thus the immune system (immunology).
the most advanced mind/body therapy available. Only one thing stands between
you and perfect health, happiness and success, in all areas of your life: Interference. This interference got stored, stuck, or trapped with you when you experienced a trauma of some kind - a physical accident, an emotional stress, or highly toxic event (virus, food poisoning, or chemical exposure). While this interference is stored in your brain as part of a subconscious memory, it is fully impacting your body 24/7. (Not good!) B.E.S.T. doesn’t treat conditions but rather people with
conditions. The goal is to remove this stored interference, so the body can do what it is
designed to do, which is to heal itself. Everyone has a certain potential for
health. When you eliminate interference, that health potential can begin to express (another good thing!).
You can’t force healing. To heal, you must allow the body time to respond to
your better choices in what we call:
THE SIX ESSENTIALS FOR
• What you eat
• What you drink
• What you breathe
• How you exercise
• How you rest
• How you think (by far, the most important!)
In case you're still wondering, B.E.S.T. specifically addresses how you think (conscious and sub-conscious), and is the main focus of my practice.
Learning about and shifting to the best food for your body-type is the second most critical aspect of healing. I help my clients with comprehensive guidance on the best food for their unique body-type according to to the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda.
The B.E.S.T. Procedure
You’ll start laying face-up flat on a table.
Then with muscle testing on your feet and arms, I will be evaluating how
you are handling everyday stress, and find the underlying memory stresses that are
preventing you from feeling optimum health.
During the treatment, I may have you do
different breathing patterns that will engage certain sections of the nervous
system. One of the common breathing patterns is rhythmic breathing a.k.a. “four
square breathing”, where you’ll inhale for a count of 4, hold your breath in
for another count of 4, exhale for 4, and then hold that exhale for 4, then
continue that four-square cycle. You’ll also be fixing your gaze at different
directions to engage higher brain centers; pressure points will be gently
touched on your head, or sometimes you’ll be laying face-down and pressure
points on your neck and down to your legs will be gently pressed. This will
allow the pulsations under the pressure points to be in sync (people out of
balance have pulsations out of sync.)
The most important part of the treatment is the memories that will come up. During the procedure, you’ll be
thinking of certain events that stressed you or traumatized you. These negative
memories are what usually causes your nervous system to go out of homeostasis (sync),
which leads to the downward spiral of dis-ease. By the end of the session, your
unconscious will process these memories so they no longer remain a burden on
your health....(a fantastic thing)!
