Ishta Spinal Touch does not treat or cure any disease or symptom. It is
primarily concerned with creating a healthy, balanced state on all levels.
It therefore has the potential to help people with almost any
Bodies have an innate healing ability which is mediated through the nervous
system. If the nervous system is working properly then the body can maintain
a state of perfect wellbeing. It doesn't need the intervention of people
like us, drugs, surgery; it can just look after itself.
If the nervous system is compromised by a bone being out of alignment, or
deranged, then three things can happen.
You can have pain.
You can have dysfunction and disease.
You can have cells dying and reduced vitality.
The body has in-built correction mechanisms for correcting the derangement
of bones. It will use the postural muscles, rather like guy ropes of a tent,
to correct the misalignments.
If you have poor posture, or the body's centre of gravity is displaced, then the postural muscles are
too busy holding you up against the pull of gravity to be able to correct
Ishta Spinal Touch improves your posture and restores the normal position to the centre of gravity,
solely by a unique muscle-relaxation technique, which then allows the postural
muscles to correct any misalignments freeing up the nervous system. It's
very gentle and often people will fall asleep while receiving an alignment
as it is so relaxing.
As a result the body's innate healing abilities can get through and do the
job it was designed to do. Pain reduces, dysfunction and disease heal and
vitality is restored.
This is why Ishta Spinal Touch is so good at helping people with so many
widely differing conditions. It is also a fantastic preventative treatment
which helps with the promotion of a profound wellness.
Ishta Spinal Touch is primarily concerned with creating a healthy, balanced
state on all levels. It can, therefore, help people with almost any
After a detailed medical history is taken an explanation is given and then
you will receive an alignment. To watch a five minute video of an alignment

After the alignment you will receive a report on how your body was distorted
and what's likely to happen during the course of your treatment program.
A brief history
The original technique was developed in the 1920's by two chiropractors,
Dr. John Hurley D.C. and Dr. Helen Sanders PhC.
Kept pure by Dr. Francis Goes D.C. he taught it to Dr. LaMar Rosquist D.C.
in the late 1950's. Over the next 10 years he encouraged Dr. Rosquist to
refine the original technique for the next generation.
The arrival in Europe
In 1998 Dr. Allyn Edwards D.C. and Dr. Sue Weller D.C. became the first
authorised tutors in Europe. They have been working with Dr. Rosquist since
then to refine the technique again for their generation.
What's in a name?
There were people practising Spinal Touch in the UK prior to Allyn and Sue
becoming the first authorised tutors in Europe, but they had suffered from
the "Chinese whisper" syndrome. Having learnt it from someone who had learnt
it from someone who had learnt it from someone etc. Errors and omissions
had crept in.
To differentiate it from what had gone before Allyn and Sue renamed the technique
Ishta Spinal Touch.
Ishta stands for Integrating Spinal Touch with Therapeutic Approaches;
as it is taught solely as an add-on technique to existing therapists.
Insist on seeing an Ishta Spinal Touch practitioner and you will be
certain of receiving the authentic technique.
