The Treatment


When assessing a client at the plumbline the Spinal Touch practitioner is looking at his/her relationship to the force of gravity. If the plumbline falls along the spine then the person’s body is properly aligned. If the plumbline falls to the right or to the left of the spine then the body is out of alignment and needs appropriate remedial guidance. Other factors to be considered include: the presence of any pelvic rotation; the way the lumbo-sacral area is tilted; whether there is deep curvature or, conversely, whether there is no curve at all.

These highly individualised indications precisely guide the therapist in customising the treatment to the particular needs of the patient. Throughout, it is the impact of gravity which advises the therapist as to which contact points to use during the treatment and it is gravity itself which empowers the session.

A Spinal Touch treatment – with its particular “rub-out” technique – has a directly relaxing impact on the affected muscles. However additionally, Spinal Touch uses a leverage contact point to actually bring about the correction of misalignment at the centre of gravity

Training in Spinal Touch (or Biomechanics) technique will show how a single thumb contact point can make changes in all three of the following pelvic distortion patterns by applying a light touch. The principal corrections accomplished by this are:biostress.-1484

1) The micro-movement of the sacrum either forward or backward.

2) Drift to the left or right of a plumbline that is supposed to bisect the body into two equal halves.

3) Pelvic rotation on its own axis.

It is the experience of many Spinal Touch practitioners that, when applied correctly, this light touch treatment will indeed bring instant pain relief in most musculo-skeletal problems and will correct and maintain the body’s gravitational realignment and relieve the body of stress.
