I recently saw a new "DR" (I think a DR of nutrition) and had quite a strange experience. Lying flat on my back the doc would have me raise my left arm straight in the air towards the ceiling and she would apply force in various directions while I pulled back to resist her force. Some areas I was able to hold the arm in position, some spots I wasn't able to hold the arm in position. So she says the spots that I can't hold back shows a sign of damage in the body. Then she would take a laser (just like a toy laser light you would find on a pen or in a childs toy) and rubs the red laser light on a scar or where an old fracture exsisted. After treating the scar with "cold laser theropy" she went through the same routine again making me point my arm straight in the air and she would pull outward while I tried to hold her back. Magically I was able to hold her back where I couldn't two minutes ago. However, I can tell that she's acting and the pull on the second time wasn't with much force. Not sure if all this makes sense, but it's hard to describe in writing.
Secondly, the doc has me lay flat on my stomach. She tells me to relax. She places one finger from her right hand on the top of my head and places one finger of her left hand on my back at the base of my spine, holding her fingers there for about one minute at a time and then re-adjusting placement a bit, moving to different spots. During this time my body starts to twitch quite a bit, kind of like when you're falling asleep but it's twitching every five to ten seconds. This goes on for about 20 minutes. And yes, I was starting to doze off so the twitching didn't really amaze me in any way either.
She explains that it's like my brain has become unplugged from my extremities and she's tried to re-connect the wires, using the example of an electrical circuit in your house. It's as if my breaker has flipped and she's trying to turn it back on so my brain will re-connect with my legs.
Has anyone ever experienced this type of treatment? It just seems to silly to me and I can't believe that a toy laser light rubbed on scars, old fractures, sprains, is really doing anything.
