Access Workshop



Sensory Enhancement


 About the Workshop...


In the early 1980's two chiropractors, Ed Blumenthal and Robert 'Ric' Wiegand, began searching for a way to develop enhanced perception abilities. They had used conventional assessment approaches for years and realized something significant was being overlooked.


They became aware something was missing after meeting some gifted practitioners who demonstrated remarkable perception abilities. These practitioners consistently perceived important changes in a person's physiology that other practitioners missed. It appeared as if these gifted practitioners were not simply paying better attention to conventional assessment indicators. Instead, they seemed to pay attention to a different set of indicators altogether.


The Access team turned to neuroscience research to look for answers that might explain how gifted practitioners are able to develop exceptional perception abilities. The Access Workshop  and Sensory Enhancement Training evolved out of this research, which explores the question:

how does the nervous system innately respond when it detects extremely subtle yet significant changes in physiology?


The research uncovered crucial information. There are key differences in the way the nervous reacts when it detects 'standard' stimuli, versus, when it detects 'extremely weak' stimuli.

The Access team used this information to develop an assessment approach  designed to selectively target the key responses the nervous system produces, when it detects extremely weak stimuli.


The team began using this assessment approach with their patients and attending to the areas that triggered these key responses. Their clinical results quickly improved. They shared the findings with a small group of colleagues and, as they started to apply the procedures, they also experienced better results. Later, the Access Workshop was created as a way to share information about these advances with a wider group of practitioners.


Over the years the Access team has continued to turn to neuroscience in order to gain new insights into subtle processes, which exceptionally perceptive practitioners innately rely on.

New discoveries and training tools have made this once elite and elusive skill-set readily accessible to the average practitioner.  It is now possible for most practitioners to acquire a working ability of this invaluable skill in a weekend, rather than requiring years of effort.

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!
