Spinal Touch was developed by an engineer called John Hurley in the 1920s who applied his knowledge of the structure of buildings to the human body. It is based on the theory that the correct alignment of the curves of the spine are fundamental to health and that the role posture plays in health is very underrated. When the body is distorted, the centre of gravity is lost and organs, muscles and soft tissue can be pushed out of their natural position. It is believed that this can cause many problems in the body.
The aim of Spinal Touch is to restore the body’s natural centre of gravity which is achieved by a series of gentle movements centred around the spine. It is a very gentle, relaxing treatment without any force whatsoever being involved. The alignment of the body is measured before the treatment to assess any postural problems, and afterwards to note any changes in posture. It is believed that Spinal Touch can be used to help alleviate many ailments.
