Core Synchronism is a mechanical system of hand medicine designed to establish balance within the organism. Practitioners are trained to mechanically correct the motion of body structures and sync them with the fluctuations of cerebral spinal fluid and the vital core current. Core synchronism is deeply relaxing and clients experience relief from pain and inflammation. It is not pathology specific, and with its gentle nature, there are no contraindications for treatment.
FOUNDER OF CORE SYNCHRONISM
Robert Stevens (NTS, ND, CCSP) graduated with a degree in Religious Studies from Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana in 1973. In 1974 he graduated from the Shivananda International Institute of Yoga, Bahamas, earning the Teachers Certificate for Hatha Yoga Instruction. In 1974 he also graduated from the National Institute of Reflexology in St. Petersburg, Florida. In 1976 he received a degree as a Chartered Herbalist from the Dominion Herbal College, in British Columbia, Canada. From 1973 to 1976 he had a private practice in reflexology, herbology and yoga.
Robert graduated from the New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics in April 1976. He received his teaching certification in polarity therapy in 1981 from Dr. Pierre Pannetier, ND. In 1978 he was certified as a colon therapist by Dr. Robert Wood, DC, ND. In 1979 he received a degree as a nutritional counselor from the School of Scientific Nutrition in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received the Doctor of Naturopathy degree from Brantridge Forest School, Sussex, England in 1981.
Robert became an instructor at New Mexico School of Natural Therapeutics (NMSNT) in 1976 and co-director there in 1977. In 1997 he became Director of NMSNT. In addition to being Director of NMSNT he is also a full time member of the teaching staff. At NMSNT Robert teaches polarity therapy, reflex-polarity, non-specific stretching techniques, Bach Flower Essences, Stevens Flower Essences, homeopathic/natural first aid, specific massage applications, internal/external hydrotherapy and philosophy of natural therapeutics. He also has a private practice as a natural therapeutic specialist and Naturopathic Doctor. Over the past several years his concentration has been on the discovery, clinical application and teaching of Core Synchronism.
Robert received the Master Herbalist Diploma (Hon.) and the Naturopath Diploma (Hon.) from the School of Natural Medicine, Boulder, Co. and Cambridge, England in May 1998. He graduated from the Ann Wigmore Educational Center, San Fidel, New Mexico June 25, 1999 where he completed the Living Food Lifestyle Total Well-Being Education Program.
Robert teaches six levels of Core Synchronism in Albuquerque, New Mexico each year. Robert also travels around the country teaching Core Synchronism. Periodically, Robert also teaches the radionic system developed by Malcolm Rae. The deeper aspects of Core Synchronism have been integrated into the radionic system. The integration of the deeper discoveries of Core Synchronism allows the radionic analysis and treatment to reach a depth unobtainable prior to these discoveries.
HISTORY OF CORE SYNCHRONISM
Robert Stevens describes the history of Core Synchronism:
I began practicing bodywork in 1974. Core is built on the back of Dr. Stone’s Polarity Therapy and specific principles of Cranial Osteopathy. Through the years that it took to figure this system out I was also deeply influenced by the philosophy of classical homeopathy, philosophy of natural therapeutics and nature cure, Edward Bach’s flower system, my own mental/emotional journeys doing additional flower medicine provings, radionics and the study of mysticism.
Polarity Therapy is a system of bodywork based on energetic principles and a specific model of the etheric body. Polarity is a five element-based system of healing. There is very little emphasis on the physical in this system. Cranial Osteopathy is a physical system based on cerebral spinal fluid dynamics and how the physical body accommodates fluid dynamics. This is an entirely physical system. Cerebral spinal fluid is where these systems overlap. Dr. Stone as well as Dr. Sutherland (founder of Cranial Osteopathy) had amazing things to say regarding this dynamic fluid. After years of practicing and studying both systems separately I began seeing the possibility of a new model. Human beings are not just energetic or physical but both. We are made up of soul (core), causal body, astral body, etheric body and physical body. An effective system of hand medicine must address the needs of the whole. The model and practice of Core effectively addresses the whole.
