Circulation is the Key
Our bodies are capable of regenerating. We as people see this everyday with cuts, scrapes, injured bones, etc. In order to regenerate, our bodies need nutrients and circulation. When an area becomes injured, circulation (or rather the things which circulation delivers around the body) allows it to re-build. If circulation is present the body will continually be building itself, allowing injuries to heal. When circulation is restricted healing can be delayed or stopped entirely.
Our bodies are meant to be relaxed when standing vertical. Because of the laws of balance and physics, any position other than vertical when standing requires tension, often in the back, to hold our body in place.
What is Muscle Tension?
Postural injuries (anything that makes us compensate for pain by standing abnormally) cause muscle tension and when a muscle is tense, circulation to the tense area can be diminished or cut off completely, this can cause pain, numbness, and in severe cases tissue deterioration. In a situation of perfect health, after a postural injury healed, all of the passive tension would disappear, but unfortunately, nobody seems to have perfect health and often times it is necessary for us to seek for relief from a qualified therapist before we can be totally out of pain and back in a natural stance.
Because the Spinal Touch+ Technique works directly with relaxing the muscles, results can be seen almost immediately.
