Spinal Touch Therapy for Animals

Animals get Bad Backs, Necks, Shoulders, Hips and Legs too. The Complete Approach to Better Health for your Animals and Pets.

Can Spinal Touch be used with Animals?

This is a question I am asked repeatedly. Animals, mammals at least, have the same bone structure as humans. The proportions vary certainly, but we are surprisingly the same at many levels. The mechanism of injury to an animal's body is very similar to that of a human body. Spinal Touch can be used on all manner of animals, perhaps the most obvious being, dogs, cats and horses.

Just because I don't have a dog or horse, my first experience of treating an animal was my cat, Samantha. At the time of her death she was 27 years old. She regularly responded to Reiki, and was very healthy for almost all of her life, which was around 120 years in human terms at the time of her death.

She would have trouble walking up the stairs because of a pelvic problem which was age related, and the pain in her bones and body. At it's worst, she couldn't climb the stairs, and would appear to be dragging her legs behind her.

This is obviously a very serious problem, but in all other respects she managed to stay clean and healthy. She responded really well to Spinal Touch treatment, healing and reiki, and her latter years are made so much more comfortable by it's use.

Since then, years have passed and I have had many chances to help a variety of dogs and horses to experience the benefits of Spinal Touch.

The proportions vary certainly, but we are surprisingly the same at many levels. Mammals have the same bone structure and muscle make-up across the living world, it is only the way we move and the way we use our bodies that is different. For example, a giraffe has the same number of cervical vertebrae in their necks as we do; seven.

But each of those giraffe's vertebra are nearly a foot long. So they must splay their front legs to get their head down low enough to drink, but they can reach the tender leaves at the top of a tall tree, while we need a cherry picker or a ladder.

The mechanism of injury to an animal's body is very similar to that of a human body too. If we slip off a step, we can pull muscles, jar our backs, do damage to our knees and shoulders, as can the mammals we keep as pets.

I once treated a dog who fell off a gangplank between the bank and the boat he was trying to get onboard. About a 6ft fall onto a mud bank which caused severe distortion to his body. The vet said he hadn't broken anything, but the poor dog was still walking sideways because of swelling and pain. It literally took one Spinal Touch treatment to have him walking straight again.

Spinal Touch can be used on all manner of animal issues, perhaps the most obvious being those relating to posture, spinal problems and neck issues. But don't forget, just as with humans, spinal issues can have a detrimental effect on muscles, bones, the digestive system, breathing, walking, running, eating and pain.

Vets and trainers are accepting the effectiveness of alternative therapies for animals and flocking to it in great numbers. Like humans, animals respond to the numerous physiological and psychological benefits of alternative therapy. Spinal Touch is a noninvasive and general therapy, which offers pain relief and helps in treating many muscular and skeletal disorders as well as preventing their return.

Spinal Touch is very effective at relieving tense and painful muscle spasm, keeping them supple and properly 'switched'. It's a great way to increase blood circulation and remove excessive toxins in the body, in the same way that a massage is effective for humans. A regular program of treatment, once need is established, is effective for maintaining muscle health, spinal alignment, pelvic/sacral alignment, general health and performance.

Postural alignment is the first step in maintaining normal healthy conditions for any animal, including many muscular and skeletal activities, such as: balance, coordination, jumping, running, walking, range of motion, stride length and bending.

It has long been thought that the body's ability to maintain good health relies, to a large degree, on the proper functioning of the nervous system. After all, this is what triggers all our organs to function and maintain a healthy circulatory system, to bathe our cells in oxygen and fuel. Vertebral and skeletal misalignments can cause disease by putting pressure on the spinal cord and peripheral nerves, which causes imbalance in the body's other systems.

Spinal Touch gives the body chance to return to proper balance and better health.

Dogs have accidents and hurt themselves. They also have back pain. If your best friend is currently in difficulty with pain in the hips or back, I would invite you to bring them to visit The Haven Healing Centre in Cheddar for assistance. Appointments and a treatment price list are available by clicking here. I look forward to welcoming you to The Haven Healing Centre where we can talk about a treatment plan structured around your dogs needs. Phil.
