Physical & Emotional Recall Technique (PERT)
Physical & Emotional Recall Technique (PERT) is a hybrid therapeutic procedure developed by Dr. Davis since 1990. In terms of “hands on” practice, it combines elements and draws from: (1) the field of “energy psychology” (which arose from the discipline of applied kinesiology in the 1980’s), and (2) from the field of B.E.S.T. (bio-energetic synchronization technique.)
PERT utilizes neuromuscular testing for evaluation, and manual reflex contacts to deliver therapy to remove stored memories of physical or emotional trauma held as depolarization foci in the brain. It removes and updates higher brain interference to prevent further expression in the physical body. From the BEST website: “When emotional thoughts such as worry, guilt, fear, judgment, to name just a few, express themselves continuously in the unconscious mind, interference with the divine plan for our perfect health and wellness becomes the norm. This interference, which becomes a pattern, prevents the true expression of our physical bodies healing capability.” Similarly, when physical accidents/trauma occur, they often cause a brain shock (and depolarization) that is frequently stored for a lifetime. All the while, stored damaging memories cause imbalance in our natural homeostasis that often expresses itself as structural complaints and body pains commonly creating the need for chiropractic treatment.
To prepare for PERT, patients fill out a two column Physical & Emotional Injury Recall sheet. The right hand column is numbered 1-20 with spaces to record in few words all physical injuries that can be recalled. The left hand column has the same spaces to record emotional traumas. That sheet is held by the patient (without Dr. Davis review), and each numbered item is rapidly visualized by the patient as Dr. Davis checks to see if the memory represents a “hot spot” in the brain that requires treatment. Each counterproductive memory, emotional and physical, when cleared, produces incremental improvement in neurological function that is measured during the treatment. Often, performing this therapy just once can produce enormous positive shifts.
