Spinal Flow Treatments (in-person)
Spinal Flow Technique ("Spinal Flow") facilitates rebalancing our nervous system by restoring our parasympathetic nervous system, which activates our ability to relax, recover and heal. It involves light touches on specific points on the body that consist of dura mater, a membrane that protects the brain and spinal cord, without manual manipulation of the spine.
A balanced nervous system supports healthy brain function, mood and emotional stability and enhances physical health through supporting healthy digestion, detoxification and immune function, minimising pain and calming inflammation. When our parasympathetic nervous system is activated, our body goes into rest-digest-heal state, routing our blood flow to our organs of digestion and detoxification, slowing our heart rate, normalising our breathing, releasing stress that has been stored in our body and our innate ability to heal and regenerate is reactivated.

What To Expect During Your First Visit
Duration: Approximately 1 hour (please see note below on "Working with Children")
Health history - the Spinal Flow practitioner will compile a full case history of your symptoms and may ask you for additional information about your past and current health and lifestyle choices.
Dresscode: None. Both assessments and Spinal Flow session will be performed fully-clothed in the attire you arrived in and no change of clothes is required.
Your selected Spinal Flow practitioner will
Assess your posture;
Identify the areas of blockages and the areas of ease or where there is flow by observing you making some simple movements; and
Feel specifically at each vertebral level of the nervous system to identify where there is specific blockages (which impedes nerve and energy flow) at the spinal level as well as to identify if your body is holding stress in a chemical, emotional or physical way.
Spinal Flow Treatment (approximately 30-minutes):
Your selected Spinal Flow practitioner will lightly touch areas of openness in the body called “access points”, without manual manipulation off the spine. By gently contacting these “access points”, our intention is to influence the areas of blockages and open them up to facilitate releasing stressors or blockages from your nervous system. All that is required of you is to lie face down fully clothed, relax and enjoy connecting into YOU.
Working with Children
Assessments and Spinal Flow treatment sessions with children may differ in duration and approach from child to child, depending on age, especially those between 0 to 7 years old, as well as specific health concerns. Your practitioner will work on building trust with your child and may request for a parent’s or guardian’s assistance from time to time. The child will be provided the space to adjust and feel comfortable with the practitioner to facilitate more effective healing.
