SPINAL TOUCHSpinal Touch is a powerful, unique and very effective light touch technique for treating chronic and acute pain. Bodies have an innate healing ability which is mediated through the nervous system. If the nervous system is working properly then the body can maintain a state of well being and won't need the intervention of pain treatments, drugs, or surgery. Spinal Touch retrains the body to relax and improve as a whole, even when a person is receiving treatment for one specific problem.
Muscles move bones; bones do not move muscles and with just the light touch of the fingers, the muscles are activated, causing a definite movement of the body's center of gravity towards your natural position. Posture is probably the most neglected and least understood keys in the total health of the body. At birth, the curvatures of the spine are normal. As we grow, they start to lose their primary function; this is often caused from falls, stress, slumping, accidents, and lack of exercise, poor diet, and gravity. If these things are continuous, then the body starts to make compensating changes. These changes will also affect the rest of the body since the body works as a whole. The secret to a complete and healthy life is to break the cycle of bad habits somewhere along the chain. Spinal Touch stops all the serious troubles from progressing any further. Thus you can avoid all operations, and get well, gradually restoring your body to its most healthy state.
This procedure is not "done" to the patient. It is important to understand the concept of Spinal Touch and for the individual to be involved with their body and self healing. The purpose of Spinal Touch is to guide the body to realign itself with its center of gravity. Our bodies change, compensate, and adapt to the world around us. Bodies become distorted and lose function over time. With persistent Spinal Touch treatments you can gradually retrain your body, and mind,to take on a more comfortable position and ultimately be out of pain. Once the body is used to this pain-free and functioning way of being, it will more willingly accept, and easily return to the optimal state of health after battling with everyday stresses, strains, and any other adaptations the body goes through.
CRANIOSACRAL THERAPYCranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams, about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and its effectiveness for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. With a light touch, the CST practitioner uses his or her hands to evaluate the craniosacral system by gently feeling various locations of the body to test for the ease of motion and rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid pulsing around the brain and spinal cord. Soft-touch techniques are then used to release restrictions in any tissues influencing the craniosacral system. By normalizing the environment around the brain and spinal cord and enhancing the body's ability to self-correct, CranioSacral Therapy is able to alleviate a wide variety of dysfunctions, from chronic pain and sports injuries to stroke and neurological impairment. CranioSacral Therapy is very good for children. Among other conditions, CranioSacral Therapy addresses...
"Viscera" relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body's ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction. Visceral Manipulation, or VM, does not focus solely on the site of pain or dysfunction, but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem. The VM therapist feels for altered or decreased motion within the viscera, as well as restrictive patterns throughout the body and then applies VM techniques. VM therapy re-establishes the body's ability to adapt and restore itself to health.
FOOT ZONE THERAPY
Foot Zone Therapy is precise, directed pressure to the various zones of the feet. The Foot Zone Therapy practitioner observes the foot and interprets the messages it conveys through discoloration, texture and tenderness. When a signal point is triggered within a certain zone, a message goes to the tissue or organ affected, through a reflex arc to the spinal cord and then to the brain. Discomfort is experienced in the areas of imbalance where healing is needed.
Foot Zone Therapy stimulates every organ and renews the cell system in each treatment. Foot Zone Therapy is a holistic approach which recognizes that all of the body's cells and organs make up a complex and interactive organism.
