Ishta Spinal Touch

This is a way of simply assessing a person’s posture in order to ascertain if there is any distortion occurring and then attempting to correct this using a very gentle treatment. The human body is built in such a way that it will maintain health and vitality in Earth's environment of constant gravity, even when subjected to an unending variety of stresses. This adaptability is achieved by all parts and organs of the body being situated so as to interact properly, not only with each other, but with gravity. But when the body is placed in a state of strain which causes loss of proper balance between parts of the body and gravity postural distortions occur. These distortions usually indicate internal body changes long before any body functions appear disturbed.

The Effects of Strain

One of the first effects of strain is to change the body's normal centre of balance which is located at the top surface of the bone called the sacrum at the level of the last spinal disc. The sacrum is in the critical position of both supporting the total spine and also the acting as the keystone for the pelvic arch. Eight major muscles fasten to the sacrum connecting it with all other parts of the body. Therefore any strain, gradual or sudden, is transmitted all or in part to this centre of balance, distorting the normal, posture. This posture shift changes the position of all the organs, placing them under strain and a distortion pattern is set up that is such a critical factor in all developing diseases.

Usually when the body becomes strained and distorted, the muscles need help to relax and rest. Ishta Spinal Touch aims to bring the spine into mechanical balance through muscle relaxation, by lightly touching key areas of the spine in such a way that will redirect the inner energies of the body. This redirecting process causes the muscles to relax and gently pull the spine into its more natural position and so relieves the strain on the internal organs.
