Traditional Chinese and Ayurdic Medicine
It is the worldwide most structured clinical intervention utilized to stablish Goals and Objectives of a Treatment Plan. Developed by Dr. Burrhus Skinner further revised the traditional theory of Behaviorism of the 1930s, Massachusetts, USA. Previously known as behavior modification, is defined as the process of systematically applying interventions based upon the principles of learning theory to improve socially significant behaviors to a meaningful degree, and to demonstrate that the interventions employed are responsible for the improvement of behavior. By functionally assessing the relationship between a targeted behavior and the environment, the methods of ABA can be used to change that behavior.
This school has been highly useful to link psychoanalytic psyche apparatus, metal processes such as attention, memory, perception, creativity and thinking and present technological development such as Neuroscience. Initially developed by Dr. Ulric Neisser, Massachusetts, USA to propose a better alternative to behaviorism. Besides integrating it is highly important its contribution to psychoeducation. Since its creation, cognitive psychology has been highly useful to integrate material gathered from many humanistic and technological resources with concrete and effective Clinical Intervention (Assessment, Counseling, Treatment Plan designing, etc.)
Experimentación Somática (Somatic Experiencing) es una técnica practicada en EEUU, Canadá, Europa (casi todos los países), Israel (y otros países asiáticos) y Brasil. Esta misma fue desarrollada por Peter Levine Ph.D., quien se vio cautivado por la forma en que los animales se sacuden corporalmente para liberar la energía traumática una vez terminado el evento de peligro. La naturaleza siempre ha sido una gran fuente de conocimiento. Hoy en día, las exigencias científicas hacen que la información la naturaleza se estructure y sea más compleja de manera tal que las técnicas se vuelven metódicas.
Developed by Sigmund Freud by the end of XIX century. It has been practiced in many countries; mostly the Western hemisphere. He decided to find a method that better suit his professional skills due to his inability to perform Hypnosis. He was fascinated by the unconscious activity and phenomena. The "talking cure" guided his perspective up to the end of his writings. Nowadays, neuroscience and cognitive perspectives is pushing Psychoanalysis out of the clinical practice. Lack of concrete outcomes with signs and the extended period of time of the treatments do not fit with current Market needs.
Fundado por Rodolfo García Otero, psicólogo argentino. Los primeros pasos fueron dados en New York y más tarde, en Buenos Aires también. Está basado en Neurociencia, Psicología y Teosofía. Puede ser considerada una técnica psicosensorial. Su aplicación es muy sencilla. MTC-STM propone una simplificación clínica para abordar signos, trastornos, síntomas y traumas. MTC-STM descubrió que la misma fuerza, el Tono, está presente en todos los niveles psicológicos. Aplicando fáciles ejercicios somático-cognitivos el Tono puede ser calibrado. Esto significa que a través de estos ejercicios, todo nivel psicológico puede ser calibrado simultáneamente.
Method practiced and scientifically accepted worldwide, and recognized for the main medical insurance companies of the most advanced countries. Developed by Francine Shapiro Ph.D., California, USA. Casually, during a walk she realized that the more anguish she was going through, the more eye movement she performed. From that moment she started to focus on the “anesthetic” effects of such eye movements. Based on the brain inter hemispheric sensory stimulation she developed in 1989 EMD. Later she discovered that persisting on with this technique a reprocessing mode could be activated, arriving to her final product EMDR.
Its traces lead to almost all ancient cultures. In those times it was considered as part of the magic field. In Western mental health, hypnosis was one of the first clinical practice. The client must trust the therapist in order to accept being induced to change his behavior. This procedure is called subliminal suggestion. By deep relaxation state and repetition, a behavior can be programmed. The greatest professional in this field was Dr. Milton Erickson. His charming personality, his creativity and his knowledge were a powerful combination to obtain amazing results. Nowadays it is mainly used for clinical repairing purposes (traumas) and behavioral changes (weight loss, quit smoking, self-esteem enhancement, etc.).
It is an ancient tool utilized as part of their active meditation practice. Scientifically, it has been practiced since the beginnings of 1980’s by the pioneer José Silva. Present psychological trainings include mindfulness as an excellent tool to aid clinical results. The big differences with Hypnosis are:
A – Hypnosis needs someone to lead the experience; Mindfulness is a self-control practice.
B – Hypnosis bases on subliminal suggestion; Mindfulness on self-programming
Mindfulness does not represent a technique by itself, it is always contained as part of more complex psychological clinical practice.
This technique is practiced in USA, Argentina, Uruguay, Europe, Africa and Oceania. BMSA, Brief (or Bifocal) Multi-Sensory Activation, is a term created by its developers Dr. Joaquin Andrade (Uruguay), Dr. Maarten Aalberse (France) and Dr. Christine Sutherland (Australia). It is based on sensory fundaments of the PINE and Traditional Chinese Medicine. BMSA considers equilibrium and orientation as sources of input information to the nervous system beside the 5 senses. The strategy is to flood (confuse) the perceptive system (receptors, thalamus and the amygdale) meanwhile the conflict is evoked. The system gets into a perceptive shock and the conflict frees the morbid affect that it is expressed as a sign.
Same as BMSA, LET GO! is practiced in USA, Argentina, Uruguay, Europe, Africa and Oceania. LET GO! is an Ayurveda philosophy oriented tool developed by Dr. Joaquin Andrade (Uruguay), Dr. Maarten Aalberse (France) and Dr. Christine Sutherland (Australia). Although it belongs to the Mindfulness practice, Rodolfo Garcia Otero, MTC founder, considers this perspective highly important. In every client, the need of “letting go” what is prisoning him / her, presents as part of the evolving process. Same as lack of trust freezes, attaching to something or somebody also stops the inner flow. The Intention of letting go is not enough for the visualization success; it is also necessary to deactivate what is obsessing the client. LET GO! offers the correct way to do it, easy and efficiently. Its results are immediate or in a short term.
Subtle Touch technique developed by Doctor and Professor Pethő Sándor, inspired on hermetic literature and other esoteric arts (ancient medicine that conceives human being in very different mode than these days). He had a wide interest in Carl Jung’s writings and Wilhelm Reich. Doctor Pethő Sándor applied his soft touch principles with Second World War refugees to keep on developing them in Brazil.The neuropsychological aspects of his investigations are based on the autonomic functions of the Nervous System. No matter that Sándors’ sources recognizes meridian circuits, his practice is not “energetic” (etheric) oriented. The foundations of this technique are purely neuropsychological.
It was initiated by Paul E. Dennison, Ph.D., a professional educator based on kinesiology oriented to cognitive and academic skills in South California, USA. He designed a full program in sensory development, including a few simple movements that seemed to help with equilibrium and perceptual skills. He researched in beginning reading achievement and its relationship to cognitive development and silent speech (thinking) skills. Later he joined forces with Gail, an artist and movement educator, who would later become his wife and collaborator. They co-founded and co-created Educational Kinesiology (Edu-k), the Brain Gym® activities and the Learning-through-Movement series.
Gentle Touch technique developed by Ronald A. Ruden, MD, PhD, inspired in psychosensory tools that enable the address of traumatic events in a tender manner. It is mainly practiced in USA and is emerging as a news in many other countries. Meanwhile EMDR, SE, EFT, BMSA, etc., were gaining Market’s attention, Ronald Ruden, MD, Phd, experimented for many years the advantages of gentle psychosensory stimulation to get excellent results with chronic pain (somatic and psychological). Thought is counselled to focus on a particular issue meanwhile epicritic circuits are stimulated to erase somatic and psychological suffering.

Due to it easy administration and capability to be self applicable, this technique is the most used in the western world. Communities from the whole world are adopting it to enhance daily life. This tool is very efficient and useful to be applied in a whole acupressure points or just some of them. It is the fastest to extinguish phobias and other kinds of anxiety disorders
