What is ConTact C.A.R.E?

ConTact C.A.R.E is a practical study in ‘The Nature of STILLNESS’. It is a Martial Arts based discipline created in NGATEA New Zealand, by Dale W. Speedy (6th Dan Blackbelt Kiaido-Ryu) and Kym Summers. ConTact C.A.R.E recognises that the skeleton defends itself automatically and independently when impacted by surprise. This results in what we call 'SKELETAL SENSORY SHOCK’.

ConTact C.A.R.E Practitioners are trained to observe the shape and symmetry of the skeleton and skull that have been CONTORTED by SURPRISE impact. ConTact C.A.R.E and the Flinchlock Release method releases the ‘spiral contraction’ so normal function may return. Simply put, the ConTact C.A.R.E Practitioner is thinking “where is the BONE that’s causing that”. We are skilled in seeing what does not move in a sea of movement. Extra-ordinary movement is created by extraordinary STILLNESS. ConTact C.A.R.E practitioners become skilled in reading the nature of cause and effect. 

How does it work?

ConTact C.A.R.E has observed that bone shapes and planes of the skull have corresponding shapes and planes in the body. It is a purely pressure-for-pressure relationship with no connection to the brain.

ConTact C.A.R.E and the Flinchlock Release method work to free frozen body reactions.  By positioning the client to comfort and away from pain, the Flinchlock Release method mirrors the pressure the frozen surprise contraction has, and with the rhythm of nature, the bone pressure is released. We then facilitate a controlled unravelling out to normal functional position and pressure.  As the perceived pressure drops, the bone ‘shapes’ naturally reposition the body posture and shape.


The clinical experience is non-intrusive and gentle, the techniques safe and effective.

ConTact C.A.R.E may work effectively with:


*Equine & Pet Injuries

*Breathing Disorders

*Old Unresolved Injuries

*Sports Injuries

*Co-ordination Problems

*Carpal Tunnel

*Back and neck pain

*Mental/Emotional Shock

*Frozen Shoulder

“ConTact C.A.R.E is a Martial Arts discipline that applies the Flinchlock Release Method to locate and release trapped pressure from the body.  Releasing this pressure allows the body’s nature processes to return to balance and ease”.


Release the pressure, realise your potential…
