Neuro Linguistic Programming

Using rapport in the health care field

Dr. Ciprian at Univeristy of Maryland

Dr. Ciprian and Dr. Amanda Thompson at the University of Maryland

Dr. Amanda Thompson and I were recently invited to speak at the University of Maryland about communication in the health care field. My topic of choice was the technique of “Rapport” from Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

NLP is like the Applied Kinesiology of the psychological field to me (an underdog that can do amazing things). The techniques of rapport are some of the most basic and important in my opinion.

Building rapport with patients helps to bring trust, understanding, and respect! These are things that are lacking in the United States’ health care system today. Patients are just run through a medical machine and only have a few minutes to spend with a doctor. I prefer to have a boutique practice where I can spend more time with a patient and really get to the core of where their health concerns are coming from!

In the holistic medicine field, we really need to figure out the source of a patients’ problems. That can take time, exploration, and trust. We may spend more time per office visit but overall we will keep that patient out of the doctor’s office. That is out goal!

What to do with tough patients!?!

Where to start with your toughest patients!

When I was a new doctor, I never worried about what I would do with even the toughest patients. I was taught by my mentors in Applied Kinesiology to look to the weakest acupuncture meridian and to start from there. No matter if they were suffering from a chronic disease, a headache, anxiety/depression, low back pain, or a freshly sprained ankle, this is where I would start for balancing the patient’s body.

Acupuncture meridians, another nervous system

The acupuncture meridians are like another nervous system. They help to maintain balance in the body in many different ways. The meridians have an effect on the physical body (muscles, joints, fascia, etc.), the biochemistry of the body (endocrine/hormonal, digestion, metabolism, etc.), and the emotions (every meridian is related to several different emotions). When you aren’t sure where to start this is the best bet!

Muscle – Acupuncture Meridian correlations

Muscles are related to Acupuncture Meridians

Dr. George Goodheart rediscovered what the ancient Egyptians knew thousands of years ago, that Muscles are related to acupuncture meridians. What are the implications of this?  If you know the muscle relations, you can use that knowledge to diagnose what is internally happening in the body.

Posture and gait

If you are aware of the muscle relations to the meridians, you can look at the way someone stands, walks, or runs and make an assessment of what is going on with their health. For years applied kinesiologists have been using posture and gait analysis to help with diagnosis.

Muscle testing

Learning how to test muscles for conditional facilitation and inhibition (to see if they are on or off) can help you to decide what is functioning or not in someone’s body. You can also challenge their body structurally, chemically, and/0r emotionally to see if the related muscle changes in function thus seeing if something is going to help or harm their body.

Example: Lung Meridian

Applied Kinesiology Meridian Therapy Class

Deltoid is related to the Lung Meridian

The lung meridian has many correlations:

  • Element – Metal
  • Time -3-5am
  • Muscle -Deltoid
  • Nutrient -Vitamin C
  • Emotion -Grief/Sadness
  • Spinal Correlation -T3-T4
  • Extremity Correlation -Acromioclavicular & Scaphoid
  • Action -Abduction of the humerus

From here you can use the deltoid muscle to see what will help with balancing the lung meridian.

Or if there is a mechanical imbalance in the shoulder, you can use the lung meridian to help rebalance the deltoid muscle.
