What Is Spinal Touch Therapy?
Spinal touch therapy is an non-invasive alternative therapy. It is used to return your body to a natural state that will make you feel better.
Before we go further, here are a few words about your body and the earth. Our bodies are meant to be in line with the universe, and in particular, the Earth. Gravity is the force that holds us on the Earth. To function properly, your body must remain in alignment along your center of gravity. The center of gravity is where your body is in a state where the spine is aligned, your pelvis is tilted to the correct position and all of your muscles are relaxed.
When the body is out of alignment, certain muscle groups are strained to support your skeletal structure in that position. Lifting packages or heavy items without proper form can cause muscle strain. Being aware of your center of gravity helps you to lift without losing your alignment.
Without pain, spinal touch therapy uses gentle pressure to return the spine to its normal axis and your muscles to their relaxed state when you are not exerting them. Treatment sessions last approximately thirty minutes. Some patients feel better instantly, especially if they have lived with chronic pain for years.
Spinal touch therapy is useful for relieving symptoms of diseases and conditions related to many systems of the body. Here are a few examples:
* Migraine headaches
* Sports injuries
* Lower back pain
* TMJ (temporomandibular joint) pain
* Problems with vision
* Injuries due to accidents
* Menstrual problems
* Digestive healthy issues
* Respiratory problem
This is only a partial list of the conditions that have benefited from spinal touch therapy.
To begin, the therapy is usually performed with the patient in their underwear. The spinal touch therapist needs to view your body while you are standing straight up (as straight as you can) next to a visual marker representing an aligned spine. The therapist will use a skin marker to place dots on our back for the treatment. This is their guide to performing your treatment.
Once you lay down, the treatment will begin. Most of the pressure is concentrated along the spine, pelvic region and along the buttocks. It is amazing how pain along the center of gravity (your lower back) can lead to all of the other conditions that you experience, depending on how long you have been out of alignment.
Spinal touch therapy is designed to restore the spine to its proper location using light pressure and non-invasive techniques. It is not a cure-all for what ails you but you may notice that other conditions lessen once you take care of the spine.
