Jaffe-Mellor Technique (JMT™)

The Jaffe-Mellor Technique or JMT™ is a revolutionary way to treat chronic degerative disorders. JMT™ can resolve (often fully) the symptoms (including pain) associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromylagia, Crohn's disease, and many other autoimmune disorders as well as, allergies, trauma-related and post-surgical pain syndromes, migraine, candida, digestive disorders, motor-sensory neurological disturbances and other neurological syndromes, recurrent subluxations and other musculoskeletal disturbances, skin conditions, and emotional/ psychological disorders. JMT™ uses applied kinesiology and acupuncture or acupressure to address the source of these debilitating conditions.

The Jaffe-Mellor Technique started with muscle response testing as a key component and today includes an advanced muscle testing method, desensitization, deactivation, intervention, and acupressure. JMT while well established with a strong track record of success, is also actively looking for methods to better measure and improve patient outcomes. JMT continues to evolve and improve thanks to the commitment of the founders and trained practitioners looking beyond the practice of a technique to the resolution of chronic health issues and truly returning their patients to health. 
JMT arose from thinking that micro organisms, bacteria, viruses, parasites, protozoans, fungi, etc. fall within Darwin's theories on evolution as much as "higher organisms" and in fact have life cycles of hours, days or weeks rather than months and years. They are able to respond to, adapt, overcome and hide from our body's defenses as fast or faster than our bodies can respond and develop new responses to them. 

If and when our bodies do respond, our brains direct our immune responders to the areas near the site of the infection and create an immune response including inflammation. When we are effective, all is good. When the organisms respond faster than our immune systems, our brains call for repeated and escalating responses that affect surrounding tissues and may be as bad as or worse than the original infection. The net effect of these we refer to as autoimmune responses and diseases. 

Doctors Jaffe an Mellor developed JMT as a technique to treat these chronic diseases based on the underlying microorganisms rather than the immune response symptoms under the theory that eliminating the underlying cause would allow the body to read that there was no threat and stop the escalating immune responses that are the symptoms and return to a health state.
