What is Spinal Touch?
Spinal Touch is a quick and effective light touch technique (each treatment lasting only 15 minutes as it is so powerful) which contacts the energy systems of the body and promotes a free flow of energy through muscles, bones and joints. A pattern of touch points covering the spine abdomen, shoulders and head are gently stimulated, releasing blockages in the spine and in the supporting organs and muscles. The effect of this is to allow the body to re-align itself with its Centre of Gravity at the sacrum.
The treatment is gentle and painless as only light touch is used.
Treatment may also include posture evaluation. Posture distortions would be; the ear forward or backward of the shoulder, one hip or shoulder more forward or higher than the other, slumping shoulders, too much or too little curve in the lower back etc.
Stress and strains are causes of posture distortion. Stress is the loads and pressures placed upon the body beyond its normal limits for short periods of time which, with rest, the body may recover from and return to normal. This brief extension beyond the body's normal is the "elastic limits". Strain is pushing body tissues beyond the "elastic limits" either gradually or suddenly. The body cannot recover from strain without help and, whilst under strain, is unable to rest. This causes the gradual breakdown of body tissue, eventually resulting in disease.
Causes of strain could be falls, blows, infections, surgical shock, emotional upsets etc...
One of the first effects of strain is to change the body's normal centre of balance which is the Sacrum, located at the level of the last spinal disc.
The sacrum is in the critical position of both supporting the spine and acting as the keystone for the pelvic arch. Eight major muscles fasten to the sacrum, connecting it with other parts of the body. Therefore any strain, gradual or sudden, is transmitted all or in part to this centre of balance. This posture shift changes the position of all the organs, in turn placing them under strain, and a "strain - distortion - strain" cycle is established that is a critical factor in almost all developing and established diseases.
Understanding this brings us now to the conclusion that it is possible to recognise and treat the degeneration of health (even before any symptoms appear) simply by measuring and analysing a persons posture and then correcting the distortions found by releasing the existing internal strains.
Even serious degenerative diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Muscular Dystrophy have responded to such posture correction.
POSTURE EVALUATION AND TREATMENT MAY BE THE ANSWER TO YOUR HEALTH PROBLEM!
Where did spinal touch come from?
It was developed by an American engineer, John Hurley, in the early 1900's. Noticing the effects of gravity on his buildings, he turned his attention to the human body, noticing that pain and sickness was often accompanied by distortion of posture, hunched shoulders, head and neck forward, chest caved in etc.
With his knowledge of acupuncture and other energy systems, he devised PAINLESS SPINAL TOUCH and worked very successfully on many grateful clients - often with astounding results!
What does the treatment do?
The intention of the treatment is to relax, release and regenerate the whole energy field. This patient may feel this as sensations of warmth, tingling or deep relaxation. The change is often dramatic and is usually accompanied by a sense of well being and absence of pain, often after only one or two treatments.
Who may this treatment help?
Spinal Touch may have a direct and beneficial effect regardless
of what symptoms of ill health a patient may be exhibiting. It
is a non-manipulative, holistic treatment, which has general
life enhancing effects. It may be used with any other medication
or treatment; in fact it may enhance the effect of these, especially
if they are natural
As it is so gentle, there are no contraindications to treatment. It may safely be used on pregnant women, children & the elderly.
How may I feel after a treatment?
Your body has amazing intelligence and knows what needs to be done, so each client may react in his or her own way. You may feel tingling, a sensation of warmth or feel so relaxed you go to sleep!
Any dizziness is temporary and just a sign of increased energy flow in the system.
Any tiredness or flu-like symptoms are just your body having a "spring clean" (just as with any other holistic treatments), so drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins and cleanse the bloodstream.
What conditions may Spinal Touch treat?

• Back pain
• Colds & flu
• Shoulder problems
• Emotional holding patterns
• Stress related injuries
• Recovery after operations
• Pregnancy & childbirth
What do clients who have had Spinal Touch Treatment say?
Female client, 42 years old, Holistic Therapist with shoulder & lower back pain following a minor car accident 3 years previously-"My right shoulder always felt sore & 'out of place', any movement, especially rotation, caused clicking and pain. Sometimes unable to sleep on right side, due to discomfort. After just one treatment the 'clicking' and soreness had gone, the shoulder actually felt back in place! Lower back pain lessened & posture improved. After two more treatments, I have no problems with shoulder or lower back pain, all joints have fluidity and a monthly 'top-up' treatment is all that is required."
Male client 36 years old, suffered severe lower back pain since aged 14. "Consultations with several different practitioners all concluded that the problem would be ongoing & the degeneration of the spine would eventually result in me being confined to a wheelchair. After 1st spinal touch treatment the pain in my lower back had gone, and has not returned." Further treatments now are for general 'maintenance' and re-balancing. T. Davis
Female client, 51 years old, Nursery Nurse who has been suffering from constant lower back pain & sciatica for 5 months - "After 1st treatment an improvement in sciatic pain was noticed and by the 3rd treatment all lower back pain has disappeared. I have tried other treatments but didn't get the results I had hoped for. I may be using this treatment again if I have any back problems in the future" L. Aldworth
Male client aged 25, accountant, plays football regularly. Posture very bad (from sitting at desk) and left knee causing lots of pain. After 2nd treatment posture was greatly improved and the knee pain had gone. Treatment may be used again if any future problems arise.
Female client aged 39 suffering severe headaches and migraines for years. Initially, weekly treatments were needed, but now just on an 'as and when required' basis. Client has just one word to say about this treatment - "brilliant!" She no longer suffers from migraines.
Hi Jacqi, just wanted to let you know how much better I felt after receiving your Spinal Touch Therapy for my bad back. As you know, when I came into you, I could hardly walk with my back getting gradually worse. The treatment itself was mostly very relaxing with a little bit of "nice hurt" if you know what I mean which is when you know its doing you good! Immediately after the treatment when I got up from the couch, and I know it sounds like a cliche, I felt like a new woman! I felt that for the first time in ages, I could straighten up and all the aches and pain I had been feeling in my hips, bottom and both lower and upper back had completely disappeared. Even a week later, I still feel completely different.
Thank you so much for your help Jacqi.
