Therapy Halifax - Developed in Switzerland during the latter part of the 1980s by Rolf Ott, Dynamic Spinal Therapy is a bodywork technique which combines hands-on body work and energy work in order to address joint issues, realign the spine and resolve spine and posture problems. It is a really gentle form of bodywork and is suitable for individuals who suffer from many health concerns. It is always better to confer with a medical doctor before beginning whatever form of bodywork regime in order to make sure that there are no contraindications.
Dynamic Spinal Therapy integrates practices and concepts from various schools of bodywork. It depends on the concept of qi or also known as life force, borrowed from Traditional Chinese Medicine. A huge focus of Dynamic Spinal Therapy is the promotion of a healthy and even flow of qi round the body. It even relies on conventional Western styles such as Swedish massage to be able to adjust the body physically.
The standard Dynamic Spinal Treatment would last for almost 40 minutes and begin with an ear reflexology test. The points on the ear are tested and afterward the response is noted. The Dynamic Spinal Therapist then uses a special stylus to trace the meridians of the body, looking for spots of weakness or blockages while following the flow of qi.
After the energy work session is finished, the therapist makes adjustments to the spine and to the pelvis, first with the customer face up and then with the customer face down. The client is encouraged to deeply relax since the muscles are intensely stretched. The session is ended with a gentle rocking which is supposed to encourage the release of tension, and promote relaxation while realigning the spinal column. There are some therapists who skip the energy portion of the session and concentrate on the bodywork instead.
After the Dynamic Spinal Therapy session has ended, the client commonly feels deeply relaxed. Thanks to vigorous stretching and the release of tension, posture is supposed to improve. At times conditions which lead to back pain and soreness could be alleviated at least partially. Theoretically, regular sessions could keep the client's energy and body balanced, improving overall health and general well-being.
