Can anyone give me information on "spinal lift" or a
"spinal build" massage?
It was done starting with a two hour regular back massage to loosen me up. Then I sat up and she began at the lowest vertebra, and used her thumbs to push each vertebra up.
She would hold each for varying lengths of time (sometimes 5 sec, up to 2 minutes). I asked her what she was looking for, and was told that if the disc wasn't in the proper place, she would hold the vertebra apart until she could feel the disc move and she felt a pulse. This told her the disc was in the proper place.
I had 10 discs that were bulging (4 lower back, 4 mid back, 2 lower neck), including 3 low back vertebra that were almost touching. Six months after my first treatment, only two discs had reverted (in my lower back). She gave me a second "build", and I have had no problems with my back.
As you can tell, I am not describing this "medically". I am a concrete mason. The person who did this on me is no longer in my area.
If ANYONE has information on this technique, its actual name, a website, a book, or other information I can give to my current therapist, I would really appreciate it.
