Spinal Touch is a unique and effective light touch technique. It aims to bring the spine into mechanical balance by realigning the body’s centre of gravity which is situated on a plane between the fifth lumbar vertebra and the first sacral segment. The treatment based on the principle that such a realignment, by releasing tension in adjacent muscles, vertebrae and nerves, can play a central part in restoring health. In both its postural assessment and its treatment, Spinal Touch has the great virtue of being so gentle and non-invasive that no physical harm can be done with it. Although it is best known for helping with back ailments and associated disorders Spinal Touch can be of benefit in a far wider range of conditions. It is especially effective in conditions which are stress related.
Spinal Touch can have a direct and beneficial effect on any patient regardless of what symptoms of ill-health they may be exhibiting. It is a non-manipulative, holistic treatment which has a general life-enhancing effect. There are no contraindications to treatment. It can also be used with any other medication or treatment. In fact, it will increase the effect of these, especially if they are natural therapies. As it is so gentle, it can safely be used on children, the elderly and even animals.
Conditions which have been helped include: ankylosing spondylitis, anxiety, arthritis, soliosis, sciatica, sinus problems, tennis elbow, whiplash injury, asthma, back pain, balance problems, digestive problems, frozen shoulder, headache, pregnancy and childbirth, jaw problems, joint pain, kyphosis, lordosis, low energy and fatigue, menstrual problems, migraine, multiple sclerosis, neck pain, pins and needles, recurrent infections, repetitive strain injury, sport injuries, tension, visual disturbances and many more.
See what some of our patients have to say about Spinal Touch:
I had been suffering with sciatic pain for 11-12 years after slipping a disk in my lower back and even the simplest thing as hoovering would set the pain away. I was also suffering for 7 years with numbness and a tingling sensation in my right arm and hand and had been under a specialist for two years undergoing various tests for carpal tunnel syndrome etc.
I have undergone numerous treatments from a chiropractor, physiotherapist and also had acupuncture but nothing had eliminated the back pain totally or even come near to stopping the tingling in my arm and hand.
I started Spinal Touch around September and 2006 and did not know anything at all about it. I was a little sceptical about the treatment as it is not anything like as physical or manipulative as I had been used to but I thought I am willing to try anything to see if I could become pain free.
After having this treatment for a few sessions I found it to be extremely relaxing and energising and for the first time in 12 years I was experiencing no sciatic pain at all. The tingling in my hand became almost none existent and my posture had improved greatly and even areas of my digestive system. I would highly recommend this treatment. The affects are truly amazing.

I had a severe pain in my knees for five years which was gradually worsening over the time. I finally went to see a physiotherapist, however not only did it not help my knees but I also started to experience pain in my back too. I got to a stage where I didn’t want to walk or move about because of the pain. I couldn’t bend my knees and the pain stopped me from my every day activities.
Then I found out about “Spinal Touch” and met Fatemeh as she was the only one practicing it locally at the time. She started the treatments on me and a few sessions on, I was able to get on with my every day life, and even climb stairs!!! The treatments has also resolved my migraine (which I’ve always suffered from), constipation, menstrual pain and it has had a significant effect on my depression, to the point that I stopped taking the very strong anti-depressant medication that I had been on for more than 2 years.

For over 2 years I suffered lower back problems and was often in severe pain. Physiotherapists just gave me exercises which were too painful to do, a chiropractor gave me relief but it was a long process.
To control the pain, at its worst, I was taking a combination of Paracetamol and 800 mg of Ibuprofen four times a day. When my problem flared up again and my mobility was again badly impaired, I was in despair. I worried that I would not be able to continue my job as a mental Health Nurse and feared being permanently disabled.
I initially approached Fatemeh for acupuncture, but readily agreed with her suggestion that “Spinal Touch” would be more appropriate.
After one session I felt a significant improvement, after the second I was down to a couple of Paracetamol twice a day. Six sessions on I was able to walk at my usual pace, and have a general sense of well being that I had not experienced in a long time.
