Power versus Force, by Brian Dobbs,
Vascular Bone Therapist, Rolfer
The NanoVi™ device helps solves what I believe is the most perplexing dilemma in bodywork: Power versus Force.
I have been a Rolfer, Integrated Manual Therapist, and Berry worker for 25 years. My conclusion, after treating thousands of difficult injuries, is that Power versus Force is the paradox that makes us fail. A large percentage of people who come to see us for alternative help are stuck in the no man’s land between power and force; they are too shattered for the force of high velocity adjustments, yet too bound up for the more gentle power of energy techniques such as cranial sacral and visceral manipulation.
I use the NanoVi™ device to provide more power, thus demanding less force, in order to get change and release. It is a remarkable tool.
The first time I used the NanoVi™ device in my practice, I was working with a woman who had been in more than 10 car accidents; starting with a blow by a car going 45 mph when she was 4 years old.
I was just trying the device as a demo and had few expectations for it.
I hooked up a cannula and started the patient inhaling the enhanced molecules of the air. I began to work.
Within minutes her tissues began to change beneath my fingers. This woman was a familiar patient and I knew her injuries. Suddenly places I could never access began to move.
I tell people the texture beneath my hands was like the difference between tapioca and a tough piece of steak. I was able to make changes with less energy but even more importantly, gnarled places which never would have let go began to respond. It seemed to have a particularly strong effect on the bones.
Later, I employed percussor tools for more boney type releases and found there was almost no trauma injury that was too ensnarled for this combination of Eng3’s device and percussor vibration to release. This approach to using Eng3’s device in bodywork solved the paradox of “Power versus Force.”
The techniques I have developed draw on many different modalities and are not easily described. However, I am working to make what I have learned available to other bodywork practitioners and will update my website bonewhisperer.net on an ongoing basis.
