The Treatment The treatment involves a series of very light and precise " rub outs" over the postural muscles beginning at the buttocks and working up to the cranial base. At the same time the centre of gravity is directed to its correct position. Such a treatment is usually a very relaxing experience and some people fall asleep. During the session the body is guided to correct posture while it facilitates the removal of acids and tension found in the muscle tissue.
With Spinal Touch, we specifically aim to interpret postural changes as deviations from true alignment to gravity. A precise observation of these postural changes guides the practitioner as to what is needed to facilitate realignment. Treatment is then given on the basis that appropriate adjustment made at a point of sufficiently key significance can have therapeutic ramifications throughout the whole system. As adjustment is no more than a cue for the system to restore balance itself there is no need for any forcefulness.
Who can Spinal Touch help? Although it is best known for helping with back ailments and associated disorders, Spinal Touch can be of benefit in a far wider range of conditions. It is especially effective in conditions which are stress-related. Conditions which have been helped by Spinal Touch include: ankylosing spondylitis, anxiety, arthritis, asthma, back pain, balance problems, digestive problems, fatigue, frozen shoulder, headache, infertility, insomnia, jaw problems, joint pain, kyphosis, lordosis, low energy and fatigue, lumbago, menstrual problems, migraine, multiple sclerosis, neck pain, pins and needles, problems during and after pregnancy, recurrent infections, repetitive strain injury, scoliosis, sciatica, sinus problems, sports injuries, tennis elbow, tension, visual disturbances, whiplash injury. It is strongly recommended that patients after the treatment drink daily 2-3 litres of water to help the body get rid of any toxins that have accumulated in the system. Avoidance of any big stress is also helpful. For those who face more serious health challenges an alkalising programme is recommended to balance the pH in the blood. This will also have the effect of cleansing not only the alimentary canal but also the metabolism as a whole, of any acid residues that have accumulated.
