What is Body Alignment?
In our ever increasing fast paced and complex lifestyle, sometimes just getting through the day causes stress within the body that we are unaware of.  Until the accumulated buildup of stress results in the body feeling pain.

Long hours behind a computer, driving a car and often just worrying about life in general, may lead to the muscles to becoming stiff, inflamed and painful. Sometimes  the incorrect manner in which you exercise, bad posture, physical and/or emotional trauma, chemical pollution (food additives and polluted air) may cause the muscle to develop an abnormal and sustained contraction known as a hypertonic spasm.

Since muscles comprise 2/3 of your body, a muscle in spasm will have a direct affect on the nervous and circulatory system and thus impact every function of your body.  These hard muscles exert such a pull on the vertebrae and skeletal joints that the bones could subsequently become misaligned. They could also cause wear and tear on the cartilage in between the bones (disintegration, compressed and herniated discs). These misaligned and/or degenerated bones then adversely affect the nerves by pinching on them, causing pain and numbness. Pain wrecks havoc with our immune system, disrupting the balance within the body, undermining our health in general and affecting the holistic optimal functioning of the body. Drugs may alleviate the pain or possibly just mask the problem for only awhile. But then you have to examine the root cause.

Body Alignment stimulates the muscles to relax, heal and unravel the tension stored in deep layers of the muscles.

BODY ALIGNMENT

One of the most important things about body mechanics is alignment.  Alignment refers to how the head, shoulders, spine, hips and feet line up, relate and communicate with each other, and thus enable the body to function to its maximum potential.

Proper alignment puts less stress on supporting the body’s posture and the body’s mechanical movements.

Improper alignment may be related to:

Headaches Dizziness Shoulder pain
Tennis elbow Carpel tunnel Lower back pain
Sciatica Knee and ankle pain Bone degeneration
Herniated discs Hip pain IBS
Sinus inflammation Arthritic pain

Body Alignment Somerset WestBody Alignment is a complimentary health technique that promotes the body’s capacity for self healing. The movement administered by the Body Alignment Practitioner facilitates the muscles relaxing, relieving the tension on the nerves which causes the pain.

It is important to understand that the source of your complaint is rarely an isolated spasm in one part of your body alone. All parts of the body are dependent on each other.  Anything that affects one part of the body affects the entire organism and the whole system becomes irritated and dysfunctional.  The body is a linked system of many interactive components and it is unbeneficial to concentrate and focus on only one component in order to diminish misalignment. This is why a Body Alignment Practitioner will treat the whole body.  Your body is holistic, muscles are interconnected.  It is important to treat the whole pattern and not just the area in which the symptom occurred.

Body Alignment is a therapy that assists the body to effectively and completely remove discomfort and pain. The client remains fully clothed during the session and the therapist assists the body to relax using specific hand movements, predominantly concentrating on the spinal column. This enables the body to release accumulated tension stored in the muscles, allowing the muscles to relax the stress they are exerting on the skeletal system and thereby enabling the skeleton to become re-aligned and function optimally.  The practitioner applies stimuli by means of a light but definite and firm pressure to encourage the muscles to release the stored up tension.

It would be beneficial to note that the importance of preventing, rather than curing muscle dysfunction is the genesis of preventing many ailments.

I suffer with a painful sciatica. Janet explained to me in detail why I have this and also the muscle involved. After even the first treatment I could feel a big change. I also woke the one morning with a sore neck, and rushed to Janet for help. She worked on my neck and explained what had happened with my muscles in my neck.
