Introduction to Core Synchronism

What is Core Synchronism?

Core Synchronism is a system of hand medicine designed to assist nature in establishing harmony with all parts of the organism.

How does is it work?

In the Core Synchronism model, the human organism is comprised of the mental/emotional, etheric and physical bodies* and is animated by the core current.

The core current can be palpated on the crown of the head, and with practice everywhere in the organism. The current is responsible for the movement of cerebrospinal fluid out of the brain.

Pain is the result of a body part (mental/emotional, etheric, physical) being out of synch with the core current and cerebrospinal fluid. Disharmonious motion causes friction, which produces inflammation, which then results in pain or discomfort.

By reestablishing synchronistic balance with the core current, cerebrospinal fluid and the dyssynchronistic body part —through palpation and focused intent— harmony is restored to the organism thus breaking the pain-discomfort cycle.

What conditions does Core Synchronism treat?

Core Synchronism is not pathology specific. It is a mechanical system designed to restore harmony to the organism. Establishing balance results in activating an individual’s self-healing ability.

Core Synchronism is deeply relaxing, safe, and gentle, hence there are no contraindications for treatment.

Things to know about receiving a Core Synchronism treatment—

  1. During a core treatment the client lies comfortably on the table, and remains clothed. Since Core Synchronism treatments are deeply relaxing, you may fall asleep, which in no way reduces the potential effectiveness of the treatment.
  2. There are no belief systems required in order to benefit from the potential effectiveness of the treatment.
  3. A person receiving treatment will feel the gentle touch of a practitioner’s hands on various parts of the body including the head, feet, and areas related to the locations of pain and discomfort.
  4. There are no contraindications for treatments, including acute and chronic illnesses. As a result of improved mechanical balance and relaxation, acute healing may be expressed as agitation or other symptoms of discomfort. This is a positive direction that may ultimately result in improvement on all levels.

How does a practitioner of Core Synchronism view healing?

Core Synchronism practitioners are not healers. The person receiving treatment is responsible for his or her own healing, which is accomplished by the individual’s life energy, the core current.

Then what is the Core Synchronism practitioner responsible for?

Practitioners of Core Synchronism are mechanics. Their responsibility is to establish balanced body motions and synchronistic relationships, which will result in deep states of relaxation where healing ultimately takes place.
