Structural Alignment – Hips, Sacrum & Spine

Misalignment and restricted mobility of the hips, sacrum and spine can be at the root of numerous client complaints such as back, knee, shoulder and neck pain. Improving alignment of the hips can also benefit hormonal, digestive and circulatory problems, as well as reproductive and sexual function.  Addressing structural misalignments helps the meridians and chakras flow better and can  improve chronic symptoms which are resistant to change.

In ShinTai healing work we see the hip joints as the moveable aspect of the Hara. The condition of our Hara reflects in the quality of life we are able to manifest. Improving the alignment and mobility of the hips affects the condition of our Hara and the quality of life we create.

In this 6 day course, practitioners will learn how to evaluate and correct specific misalignments of the hips, sacrum, and lumbar spine.  You will learn muscle energy corrections to bring about immediate changes in posture and structure which last over time. Many practitioners lack confidence in adjusting structural misalignments. These ShinTai techniques offer an extremely effective yet non-invasive approach to structural alignment.
