The Essential Assessment


 Essential Assessment


Do you get amazing results sometimes and other times things just don’t seem to resolve? Do you ever wonder why?


Are you ever uncertain which is really the best area to focus on and which area(s) would be better off left alone?


Have you ever had patients/clients tell you that they felt much better after the first few visits… but now nothing is happening? Have you ever stared at a patient’s/client’s file and not known what to do next?


These are common experiences in practice. Let’s face it, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out what the next step should be. At times like this, new insights about a problem can play an essential role in clarifying choices and producing results.


The good news is that an additional source of essential information is available. Unfortunately, many practitioners have never learned how to reliably get access to this resource, so they cannot take advantage of the opportunities it offers.


Better results start with better insights: the dual assessment advantage...


When the nervous system first detects a stimulus, it evaluates the stimulus to determine if it is harmful or helpful. This assessment is essential to survival, so it’s hard-wired into the autonomic nervous system. As a result, this ‘essential assessment’ process automatically runs non-stop, 24/7 and, mostly, outside of awareness - like heart beat and blood flow.


Given the fact that the essential assessment process operates all the time (in the background), this means that anytime a practitioner assesses a person, there are actually TWO assessments that take place at the same time. There is 1) the assessment that the practitioner consciously performs and 2) the essential assessment, which the practitioner’s autonomic nervous system innately performs - on the stimuli that is detected from the patient.


Many practitioners pay expert attention to the tactile sensations their nervous system produces when they assess a patient via palpation. But very few practitioners know how to pay skillful attention to the autonomic responses their nervous system (also) produces when they palpate.


This is a missed opportunity. Autonomic responses provide vital information about the ‘biological significance’ of stimuli detected from a patient. Tactile sensations/responses are not capable of providing this same information. Conventional methods of assessment generally don’t pay attention to key autonomic responses that the essential assessment process produces. Consequently, most practitioners miss out on crucial insights without realizing it!


Over the years the Access team has continued to turn to neuroscience research to gain new insights into subtle processes that exceptionally perceptive practitioners innately rely on.

New discoveries and training tools have made this once elite and elusive skill-set accessible to the average practitioner. If you would like to personally experience the advantages that essential assessment insights offer, the Workshop can show you how to develop this high value skill set.





Kevin Hay, D.C


Thank you for an amazing weekend of awakening to all that Innate has to offer!  You would think that as chiropractors we would rely more on the "wee small voice".   Thanks for training me how to access certainty in my evaluations and adjustments!  I can now state that I know for sure where the subluxation is and when it is corrected within a matter of seconds.


The information you presented created a bridge between Innate and science that has been sorely lacking in our profession. I would highly recommend every D.C. learn this valuable skill set!  It is something you just have to experience to appreciate, it is much like trying to explain Disney World to someone... you just have to go there to know how amazing it is!
