Carpal Tunnel Pain
With Spinal and Skeletal Awareness, we learn that the problems in wrist pain are reflected in tightness in the shoulders, stiffness in the whole spine, tension in the hips, holding in the chest and throughout the entire self.
Healing Touch
Within each person lies a part that wants to grow, to change, to improve. Spinal Awareness works in such a way to contact this part of the individual. Using touch, suggestions are made which allow the muscles along the spine to rebalance.
Stress Relief
With Spinal Awareness, the muscles of our body relax, our breath becomes easier, and our skeleton's ease of movement increases... we can begin to balance the negative effects of stress. The movement, touch and group experiences of Spinal Awareness are nourishing and fun.
Awareness Allows Us To Awaken Health.

Organizing the multitude of muscles and bones of the body into a coordinated movement is no small task. The nervous system has this job, sending messages with nervous impulses to the various muscles, telling them to shorten or lengthen, and how much to do so.

When learning a new task, the higher centers of the brain are needed. Aware, conscious movement is necessary for learning.

Any movement that is done repeatedly, in the same manner, such as standing, walking, sitting, eating soon leaves the awareness of most people and takes on the qualities of an unconscious movement, or reflex.

In a movement triggered by a reflex, the nervous signals do not travel from the various areas of the body to the higher brain in the head but only to the spinal column. The movement has become automatic, programmed in. Many of our everyday movements are done reflexively without our thinking.

To make a change in this deeper area of the body, we must activate our consciousness, using our awareness to rediscover what we are doing in ourselves when we do a movement. In this way, we will change the way we move consciously, but also, unconsciously, with our reflexes. In the Spinal Awareness process the movements you do everyday without thinking become easier, more graceful and efficient.

Spinal Awareness and Skeletal Awareness enable you to experience a healthier you. You will learn to stimulate the improved functioning of your nervous system and your whole body.
