Quantum Medicine and Releasing Trauma

by Christina Captain, DAOM, MSAOM, MSHN, MA 


Alternative Medicine can be defined as a treatment that does not fit into the conventional medical model. The federal government has given it the broader title of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, or CAM. While some CAM treatment modalities are well known like acupuncture and chiropractic, there are other models of lesser known alternative medicines such as the Jaffe-Mellor Technique (JMT ™).

The main premise of JMT ™ is that the human body can heal itself. The secondary premise is that trauma and emotional disturbances underlie all forms dis-ease. In my practice, specifically in autoimmune issues, I have found the presence of some type of emotional trauma. This emotional trauma is underlying the physical symptoms, and in many instances, prevents complete healing.

 Emotional trauma might have been treated on a conscious level as patients routinely state, “I have done extensive therapy.” However, the concept that our bodies retain cellular memory is one that should not be discarded. The body remembers emotional trauma and continues to respond in the same way. 

Emotional memories become locked inside each cell as an imprint, and it is only upon release of these memories that true and complete healing can occur. There are several ways that we as healers can guide patients in the release of cellular memories, and one of the most effective that I have found is the Jaffe-Mellor Technique.

JMT ™ is a proprietary system of treatment based upon assessing and evaluating the autonomic nervous system of a patient through a unique method of muscle response testing which uses both nonverbal and verbal questions and statements.

This method is completely noninvasive––there are no oral supplements, injections or other applications provided to the patient. The Jaffe-Mellor Technique likens the human nervous and immune systems to a computer. When online, your computer is susceptible to viruses, structural damage, malfunctions and other glitches that lead to less than optimal performance.  

Failing to locate the root cause of the problem will eventually lead to greater internal issues that can threaten the daily functioning of that hard drive.  When the human bio-computer is online (a.k.a. “alive”), we tend to pick up the same kind of ‘bugs” that cause less-than-optimal performance. The human bio-computer malfunctions from the insult of viruses, toxins, toxic emotions, trauma and other glitches in its nervous and immune systems. 

Where evaluation discovers glitches in the nervous system, verbal corrective commands are utilized to repair the problem, enabling the body to heal itself. This process is reinforced by percussion of vertebral sectors and specific patterned breathing. The JMT™ technique commonly produces immediate changes in virtually all health issues resulting from glitches in the human bio-computer.

This technique successfully addresses the symptoms of many disorders including, but not limited to, all forms of arthritis and chronic degenerative disorders, allergy elimination, interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Crohn’s Disease, irritable bowel syndrome, autoimmune diseases, trauma-induced pain syndromes, acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, emotional, sensory and motor neurological disturbances, and endocrine problems. My professional experience with JMT™ has revealed a tremendously successful technique for health problems that have exhausted the conventional medical model.  An example of such a patient follows:

This patient has been suffering from severe acid reflux and violent heaving of stomach fluids since her lifesaving surgery for stomach cancer. The surgery, although life-saving, created a malfunction in the value leading from the stomach to the esophagus. This malfunction created a constant reflux of acid into the throat. This made it impossible to sleep and or eat much food. After trying many forms of Western treatment, mostly pharmaceutical, the patient was frustrated and losing hope.  Seeking alternative medicine in the form of acupuncture, she found the Family Healing Center.

The patient was treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. While progress was made in reducing the frequency and severity of the episodes, total resolution was denied.  We then decided to try something even more alternative. JMT™ was attempted, and almost unbelievably, resulted in the total resolution of the problem. There are many testimonials of JMT creating total pain reduction and resolution of illness and dysfunction.   

Facing the facts, if you have tried other conventional and non-conventional therapies without success, then why not attempt something truly alternative. What would you have to lose? The last hope just might exist in a safe and gentle alternative technique that successfully gets to the heart of the issue.
