What are Reflex Points for Self-Care?
• Reflex points are places that through the nervous system affect usually in a positive way another area which may be near or far away from the reflex point. • Self Treatment: – Contact area of dysfunction and the reflex point or synchronizer. Connect the two areas for 15 minutes or more. Focus on the tissue and improved function.

Axonal reflexes that change vasomotor balance also produce vasodilatation. and venules. with a consequent core temperature elevation. Heat one extremity and the contralateral extremity also dilates. heat the front of the trunk and the hand dilates. The release of bradykinin. Temperature elevation also produces an increased blood flow and dilation directly in capillaries. even in the absence of a change in core body temperature.Increasing Blood Flow Reflexively healthandlight. probably through direct action on their smooth muscles. heat a forearm and both lower extremities dilate. further induces vasodilatation via a hypothalamic-induced decrease in sympathetic tone on the arteriovenous anastomoses. Heating muscles produces an increased blood flow level similar to that seen during exercise. . also produces increased blood flow and vasodilatation. Whole-body hyperthermia.

The vestigial neurovascular circuits that develop in the fetus remain to be called upon for circulation control in later life. Dr. If the reflex responds. causing the vessel's muscles to pulsate in an augmented fashion that aids the mother's placental circulation. Bennett. one of the early pioneers in the American Chiropractic Association.com/akbasic/aklogo. and the mother's placental circulation is augmented by a network of fetal vascular circuits. The neurologic influence on blood circulation affected by Bennett's reflexes appears to develop early in the embryo and unfolds with the skin during growth.C. Stimulation of certain active reflexes strengthened specific muscles. Reflexes that Bennett associated with specific organs and glands correlated with the muscle-organ association that was developing in applied kinesiology. Bennett. tugging touch is maintained for 20-30 seconds to activate the reflex. resulting in weakness. The weak muscle that identified the need for neurovascular treatment is then tested to determine if it has returned to normal strength. Floyd Slocum. At about the fourth month the heart is formed and takes over part of the burden of supplying circulation to the growing fetus.." developed the Bennett reflexes. the muscle doesn't get its proper blood circulation. whether he had to sit up all night with a sick patient or go with a patient to a surgeon was a small matter as long as something was learned. Dr. located about the head and front of the trunk. a chiropractor described as a ". D. In 1966 Goodheart correlated Bennett’s reflexes with the muscle weaknesses found in applied kinesiology. Bennett’s lectures and other work have been published by Ralph J. The direction of tug is changed if there is poor or no response until the optimal pulsation is felt.. For the first three or four months the fetus has no heart. the circuits exert slight traction on the blood vessels. a light pulsation is felt that is not synchronous with the heart beat. One can compare the neurovascular receptor with a thermostat. and the examiner activates them with a slight tissue tug.Neurovascular Reflex www.html • In the early 1930s Terrance J. Martin. As the tissues grow. and the muscle's lactic acid and other products of muscle contraction are not flushed or washed out. were postulated to affect the circulation of the blood vascular system of various organs and glands to improve many types of conditions. The neurovascular circuits are located in the skin. Bennett wrote and lectured actively during the 1930s and '40s on the Bennett reflexes. The light. The muscle therefore becomes dysfunctional from its own waste products. The Council on Diagnosis and Internal Disorders of the American Chiropractic Association has also furthered Bennett’s work.icakusa.

By contrast.ithaca. so you don't collapse. it reflexively contracts to support that load. then zip around through a bunch of neurons in your brain as you recognize what is happening and decide what to do. having to consciously think about working their muscles for each step. Every time you put weight on your foot. This is quite useful for walking. Nerve impulses only have to go through two neurons. Without spinal reflexes. Since crossing from one neuron to the next is relatively slow. your muscles contract to support you.edu/faculty/asmith/knjk. people would look silly staggering around campus. then it has to go back down the spinal cord and out a motor neuron. Thus.Knee Jerk Reflex www. but with the muscles reacting too hopelessly late to be useful. if you were to consciously decide to move your leg in response to a stimulus. having only one such crossing is a pretty good arrangement. the buckling of your knees would stretch your thigh muscles. • So what is the point of a knee-jerk reflex? The point of the reflex is that if a sudden weight dropped on you (Figure 2).html • The advantage of a spinal reflex is that it is fast. so the pathway is short and there is only one spot where an impulse has to jump over to another neuron. Chewing gum at the same time would be out of the question. jump to another neuron to travel up the spinal cord. automatically causing the muscles to contract harder via the spinal reflex. . the nerve impulse would have to travel to the spinal cord. By the time the impulses have traveled this route. it's probably too late to respond. whenever the muscle is suddenly loaded.
