One of the treatment options clients have here at our chiropractic clinic is Bio Energetic Synchronization Technique or B.E.S.T. which is rapidly becoming the modality of choice for many patients who wish to see better and faster results in their treatment. Dr. Marina is one of the only chiropractors in the Portland area to offer B.E.S.T. to her clients.
As one doctor put it, B.E.S.T. is a gentle method of working with your body and not against it. Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique, or B.E.S.T., was developed during 40 years ago by a chiropractor by the name of Milton T. Morter Jr. of Rogers, Arkansas. Dr. Morter developed this technique to handle many symptoms of emotional trauma and stress that store themselves biochemically in our body. B.E.S.T. helps us look at health as a picture bigger than symptoms or body parts. When your nervous system is out of balance, your whole body is out of balance.
With the BEST method, a practitioner applies gentle touch to nerve points on the body. This releases tension in the muscles, relaxing you the patient and allows your bones and muscles to move back into place where they belong. This takes pressure off of your nerves, increases your circulation and stops pain. There are patients who may require more traditional chiropractic adjustments, but most respond to the B.E.S.T. treatment very quickly. B.E.S.T. is especially helpful to patients who experience depression, anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I had the privilege of studying with the founder and the brilliant mind behind developing this technique; Dr. Milton T. Morter Jr. whom unfortunately passed away a few years ago. Since his passing, to me, the message and the company feels quite different and I have not been actively subscribing their yearly fee to be listed as a practitioner and that would be the reason my name does not show up on their practitioner list. Regardless of the list, I started my B.E.S.T journey in 2010 and practice it on a daily bases.
