What Is ConTact CARE Flinchlock Release?

ConTact CARE Flinchlock Release is a system for locating and releasing trapped bone pressure. ConTact C.A.R.E (also often referred to as Flinchlock treatment) is a discipline which isolates the body’s natural self-defence tendencies that have caused the body to ‘flinchlock®’ into compromised mobility.

ConTact C.A.R.E. provides a ‘Commonsense Approach to Real Ease’.

Contact CARE Flinchlock Release: What Is It And What To Expect

Contact CARE Flinchlock Release is a relatively new modality. It was founded by Dale Speedy in Ngatea, New Zealand in 2006, and Kym Summers (Dale’s business partner) became co-founder in 2008.

Although it hasn’t been around for long in comparison to many other natural therapies, Contact Care (also commonly known as Flinchlock or Flinchlock therapy) has become well known locally since its inception. This is because it generally gets amazing results for both animals, and humans alike.

Due to the success of Flinchlock treatment, word of mouth and the sharing of positive experiences has quickly caused this amazing method to to spread out around New Zealand, and the world.

As those (like myself) who become fascinated with Contact C.A.R.E line up for training, others looking for relief from pain, discomfort and other forms of ‘dis-ease’ in their bodies, seek out the services of Contact Care Practitioners.

Contact C.A.R.E. Flinchlock Release Is Unique

Contact Care is unique in that it recognises the body’s self-defense system which overrides the nervous system, and the reflex system.

Because of this, Contact CARE has provided a system that allows us to locate and release pressure which has been caused by surprise impact injuries, and is trapped in the bone. It is this pressure that is often the cause of physical pain, loss of mobility as well as emotional and behavioral problems.

As pressure drops, bones are naturally re-positioned and the body adjusts.  Then the body’s natural seeking for the most effortless/efficient way to survive does the rest.  The results is that homeostasis is improved and problems are resolved.

Who Can Benefit From Contact C.A.R.E. Flinchlock Release Treatment?

Everyone can benefit from Flinchlock treatment as it drops pressure from the body, ultimately increasing relaxation and EASE. ConTact CARE is suitable for all ages, from birth to the very elderly, and the following are just some of the conditions that are often successfully treated:

  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Back & Neck Pain
  • Breathing Disorders
  • Old Unresolved Injuries
  • Sports Injuries
  • Co-ordination Problems
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Post-op Rehabilitation
  • Mental/Emotional Shock
  • Cranial tension
  • Depression – caused by chest cavity impacts

A Few Points To Consider…

  • Impacted bones can have serious effects many years after the original injury.
  • Impacted bone can affect connective tissue length and working pressure within the body.
  • Your felt pain can be caused by the pressure balance arrangement between your head and body. For example a cheekbone impact can affect your ribs and your breathing. A tailbone injury could be causing your migraine headaches.
  • Impacted bones can alter what a person feels they can and can not do.
  • Impacted bones can cause pressure within the body that is relieved (unconsciously) by movement. This often creates the ‘workaholic’ or the person with ‘ants in their pants’ – this is the person that must be on the go all the time to ‘feel normal’.
  • Impacted bones can cause many seemingly unrelated symptoms and dis-ease in the body. Therefore releasing stored pressure from the bones sees clients experiencing a new ‘normal’ with less pain and improved mobility.

What Can You Expect From ConTact CARE Treatment?

Contact C.A.R.E. Flinchlock Release is non-intrusive and gentle, and very relaxing. The techniques are safe and very effective.

Consultations are carried out with the client fully clothed, so please wear loose clothing for comfort.

Sessions can last 40-60 minutes (less for small children) with a return visit according to your needs.

Most people require 1-5 sessions depending on the severity of the injury.

During each Contact Care session you can expect:

  • To be observed closely as you move instinctively around your injuries.
  • To be listened to closely as you tell your story.
  • To be supported in your comfort.
  • To be educated in how the body instinctively protects itself under duress.
  • To be given a sense of how your body is working perfectly in an ABNORMAL situation.

Do Massage Therapy & Contact C.A.R.E. Work Together?

Contact Care and Massage therapy can most certainly be used together for great effect. They can literally be used during the same treatment or they can be done in separate visits to suit the client and their issues.

Temporary aggravation of symptoms may be experienced after ConTact C.A.R.E. treatment. This is common and we refer to this as ‘unraveling’. The effects of Flinchlock treatment mean that as the body ‘unravels’ and adjusts back a more ‘normal’ way of being, the soft tissue (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) must adjust to fit.

Massage & Soft Tissue therapy, ENAR therapy, or even Fascia Blasting can assist with this process and provide relief of any aggravation being experienced and help to speed up recovery.

Impacted bones can have far reaching effects many years after the incident. Please contact me to make an appointment or for more information.
