Dr. Rockwell

Dr. Jeff Rockwell began his life-long somatic education journey studying Rolf structural integration. After graduating from Life Chiropractic College he went on to specialize in soft tissue dysfunction in private practice.


In 1992, Dr. Rockwell became a professor at Parker University and passionately shared his knowledge and insights with students over the following decade. As a popular instructor, he traveled and taught approximately 40 seminars a year during that period.


In 1997 Jeff experienced severe hip pain for many months that no practitioner was able to help with. A student offered to work on him with the VibraCussor instrument and, in one 15 minute session, he became pain free - and remains so to this day. He was so startled, and grateful, for the results that he immediately obtained a VibraCussor and began integrating in his practice. Since that time, Dr. Rockwell has developed seminars and created DVDs showing others how to use the VibraCussor instrument.


Over the years, Dr. Rockwell has been fortunate to study with some truly amazing masters: Janet Travell, Raymond Nimmo, Henri Gillett, Vladimir Janda, Karel Lewit, Thomas Hanna, among others.  He now practices in Los Gatos, California and teaches neuromuscular therapy/trigger point therapy at the National Holistic Institute in San Jose. Additionally, he writes a column for “The Chiropractic Journal" and serves on the research committee for the Hanna Somatic Institute in Novato.  Dr. Rockwell can be contacted via:

Dr. KOCH: ... In 2003, when I first started using the VibraCussor® I have to admit I did so rather tentatively. While I was convinced the ArthroStim® had value as an adjusting instrument, I was uncertain that the VibraCussor® had much more than "feel Good" value. New to this kind of energy medicine, and wanting to understand more...

I was impressed. It was a great introduction to the healing potential of the VibraCussor® instrument in skilled hands, and provided me with a lot of useful technique instruction...I used thew VibraCussor® and I now cannot imagine practicing without it...Then several months ago, I ordered Dr. Rockwell's instructional DVD series, the VibraCussor Collection. As my wife and I were watching the first one together, Kiana commented, "What a great teaching style!" I agreed.


Dr. KOCH: ...he explained that the most effective way of initiating positive and long lasting neuroplastic changes in the brain is through stimulation of the fascia, with light tangential strokes with the VibraCussor® using the Therapy EdgeTM attachment`.


Dr. Rockwell: The way it works is that the Ruffinin corpuscles are slow to respond, but continue to buzz and stimulate the brain for about 20 minutes, as opposed to the Pacinian corpuscles, that only fire for 20 seconds. It is naturally easier to piggyback on 20 minutes than 20 seconds of brain imprinting.


Koch: What are you saying is that the mechanoceptors do not like strong compressive forces, but are most responsive to tangential forces. Would that be, as you show in your DVDs, when you use the Therapy EdgeTM attachement on a VibraCussor®?


Dr. Rockwell: That is exactly what I am doing. That's why ED Miller, at IMPAC Inc. designed that attachment.

Dr. Koch: I have a Therapy EdgeTM, but when I first got it, I was not crazy about it. That is because I didn't understand how to use it. I started getting used to it only after watching how you use it. Now that I understand the neurophysiology behind it, I have to keep reminding my self to go lightly. It just requires a little retraining for an old, full contact chiropractor like me.

An Instrument-Assisted Approach to Soft Tissue Injury and Pain

Dr. Robert Fulford, an American osteopath, created the percussion vibration technique. Due to the body-wide continuity of the fascia, and its semi-conductor capacity, Dr. Fulford felt the best way to globally release stress from the nervous system is to work on the fascia that surrounds it. Dr. Fulford’s work aimed to improve the respiratory system, CSF and muscles and joints, as well as enhance the vital force. Far ahead of his time, Dr. Fulford recognized the significance of localized ‘currents of injury’, which have long been observed by biologist.


Dr. Jeff Rockwell’s 2 hour DVD and manual:

An Instrument-Assisted Approach to Soft Tissue Injury and Pain, provide practitioners with step by step instructions outlining assessment and treatment protocols of the Fulford approach. Powerfully subtle techniques such as the use of a ‘listening hand’, and using a VibraCussor® instrument to build up energy in the tissues and release energy blockages, are explored in depth. This is the most readily accessible compilation of Dr. Fulford’s work that has been produced to date.



Dr. Rockwell presents a concise overview of Dr. Robert Fulford's work.
