On Air: RPT™ Strikes Again, Literally

Slapping pain away might sound contradictory, but Reflexive Pattern Therapy™ is a treatment that does just that. On Good Morning Washington, NewsChannel 8 reporter Eileen Whelan takes a closer look at the one-of-a-kind treatment with RPT™ creator Andrew Bloch, who uses gentle slapping, smacking and prodding to relieve chronic pain.

Whelan describes RPT™ as “a breakthrough treatment for pain” and watches as Andrew treats one of his clients, former NCAA basketball player Jon Larranaga. Before meeting Bloch and discovering RPT™, Larranaga suffered from chronic hip pain for a dozen years. Larranaga tells Whelan that “after seeing Andy for really the first treatment, the pain went away.” He goes on to describe RPT™ saying, “It looks weird, it sounds weird, but it works.”

Bloch tells Whelan about how the unusual treatment works and makes such a big difference. Bloch says “I discovered these involuntary pain patterns in the body, and once I treat them I kind of reset the neurological system, almost like a computer or phone. Once you reset that, the pain is relieved almost immediately.” Essentially, RPT™ is a fascinating solution for anyone who wants pain relief to be as easy as pressing a button. Of course, pressing that button might mean taking a little bit of light smacking.

On air, Whelan is so intrigued by RPT™ ,that she decides to test it out herself. After experiencing the full RPT™ treatment, Whelan is shocked by how well it works. Watch the video below:

In the Media: RPT™ Creator Andrew Bloch

Andrew Bloch, DOM, MSPT, ATC knows pain and how to treat it. His breakthrough Reflexive Pattern Therapy™ treatment relieves pain in patients from age six to 102. Bloch tells Today in PT how he’s successfully combined physical therapy and acupuncture to treat even the most debilitating pain immediately.

RPT™ is based on the principles of Eastern medicine. Bloch looks for reactive points that correlate with where the patient is feeling pain. Once he identifies the reactive points, Bloch activates reflexive energy, which, in turn, alleviates the pain. “If you have back pain, I would never touch your back to get rid of your pain,” notes Bloch.

When illustrating the complexity of RPT™ to his patients, Bloch compares the treatment to a light bulb. “If your back pain is a light bulb that is not working, most people work on the light bulb,” explains Bloch. “I treat the light switch.” This method resets the body and provides long-lasting relief.

Reflexive Pattern Therapy™ is exclusively offered at Advanced Wellness Systems in Rockville, MD. Read Bloch’s full interview on www.TodayInPT.com.
