How Longitudinal Arches have an effect on Thigh, Back, and Neck Tension

Expert Author Roger Fontaine
As associate degree veteran massage healer the primary issue i feel of once a consumer presents with neck pain is to appear at the full body.

How will longitudinal arches within the feet cause neck tension and pain?

My 1st meeting with the consumer was throughout associate degree emergency home visit whereby the consumer complained of being unable to maneuver her neck. She did gift as sidebended within the body part spine.

The usual visual assessment could or might not reveal a spinal sidebendedness or a decent ilio-psoas, or a decent ITB(iliotibialband) or extensor. However, upon additional scrutiny, ensuing day, in my clinic, what I noticed  was tenderness and tension in one or each of the longitudinal arches of the feet. one thing I did not assess or notice throughout my emergency home visit. throughout that keep, I centered on the neck, and back with my massage chair. Did I consider the feet or legs No! Common error in home emergency visits. I did not complete a radical assessment and let the client's pain guide ME. I failed to create that mistake once the consumer visited ME ensuing day in my clinic.

How vital it's {to do|to try to to|to try associate degreed do} a whole assessment of the consumer even once doing an emergency home visit and treatment. The tendency is to aim shortcuts to shorten the period of the visit nonetheless to supply some temporary relief. and that is maybe acceptable, but mistakes will cause faulty or incomplete treatment and failing to alleviate the client's pain and miss the most causes of the pain.

The fact that one learns, within the field, is that ninety p.c of purchasers area unit right-dominant. And approx. 50-80% of them have some imbalance within the left pectoral and skeletal muscle. Another approx. 30-50% have tensions within the ilio-psoas, and/or ITB-Quadriceps. several of those cases emanate from falling or depressed arches, or improperly supported high longitudinal arches because of anatomical structures.

I even have ascertained in assessing purchasers, over 9 years of follow, that foot disfunction typically, however not perpetually, happens on one foot inflicting associate degree imbalance all the high the chain to the neck. It depends on however quickly the arch disfunction is detected and corrected.

The fact of getting a dominant aspect muscularly means there'll be a ensuing imbalance in strength, usage, and strain to the alternative weaker non-dominant aspect. The severity of the imbalance can depend upon the extent of strain, shape, and modus vivendi.

Today I examined a consumer World Health Organization had a severe cervical lateral strain on the left scalenes, anterior, lateral, and posterior, left and right skeletal muscle, right higher thoracics, lower left thoracics wherever the cross-over happened, the left ITB(iliotibialband) and extensor, associate degreed reason behind this dysfunction: an unsupported high longitudinal arch of the left foot with ensuing region hypertonicity and pain.

So once the consumer told ME that she had neck pain, the initial tendency of the new healer is to treat the neck. It's solely when having spent half or most of the one-hour appointment that upon examination the healer could or might not discover all the opposite connected tensions leading right down to the longitudinal arch.

The novice healer can unlikely be able to place every separate muscle tension taken along and see the large image.

So, supported my expertise, the primary place to begin treating the consumer is that the extensor and ITB cathartic that tension. My reason for beginning the treatment there's as a result of this can be the core of the body wherever the strain focuses its energy.

Then continuing with the alternative adductors which is able to be stressed due to compensation. I did observe hypertonic right adductors longus, brevis, and pectinius.

Next I treated the dominant right ilio-psoas that was the smallest amount tight, then the left ilio-psoas that was the foremost strained. This brought ME to the pectorals that were strained on the left non-dominant aspect, and therefore the rib heads at ribs 5-6-7 on the left aspect had been strained in response to the left tight pectoral major. The scalenes on the left aspect were all hypertonic, anterior, lateral, and posterior. victimization some isometric techniques on all 3 muscles power-assisted in relieving the reduced quality in sidebending . All of this medical care is completed within the supine position.

The feet area unit treated with the consumer in prone position as I notice it easier for the body mechanics of the healer to bend the leg and and have the foot at a height that is less complicated to treat the region surface.

Then the consumer is placed within the prone position with face down and therefore the posterior neck, and skeletal muscle area unit treated. The skeletal muscle and rhomboids also can be discharged. there'll be a lot of tension ascertained within the levator scapulae and rhomboid minor on the correct aspect as compensation.

The higher right thoracics and lower left thoracics end in the cross-over tension from left foot/leg into the rear to the correct neck.

So it is vital for the novice healer to not jump to conclusions once being conferred with a sore neck. the matter could reside down within the arches.

Prescribed rehab for the consumer enclosed buying a group of full sole orthotic insoles.

Sidebends for the thoracics, quad stretches for the left leg, and skeletal muscle stretches for the correct leg, skeletal muscle stretch for each side, and regular monthly maintenance stopative massage treatments to observe or prevent additional imbalances.

That's the way to pay a productive hour.

In my clinic I conjointly use pranic healing techniques on purchasers that perceive the advantages of holistic healing. (Treating the full person- physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual)

On the Pranic energy state, the healing perpetually begins with associate degree invocation for the help and cognitive factor and Divine Protection of the spiritual being, non secular Helpers and lecturers, Masters and Mentors, Angels and Saints for blessings and healings, with thanks, fully religion.

The aura was clean with some general sweeping, removing the depleted energy into a salt-water bowl. I conjointly used a radical chakra and organ cleanse of depleted prana(chi) with sensible living water. this can be a meditation-visualization learnt by Master Choa Kok Sui. The meditation and visual image consists of a radical cleanse of organs and chakras descending  from the crown to the feet, covering all organs and chakras. this can be the advanced equivalent of sensible white lightweight body of water that is employed in a very general body of water cleanse from the crown chakra down through the body to the only minor chakras and disposed into the bottom. alternative body of waters which might be used area unit the sensible emerald inexperienced body of water or the sensible amethyst violet waterfall visualizations from crown chakra to sole minor chakras. These meditations were tutored by Master Stephen Co through his on-line weekday evening meditations on

The chakras were then assessed for activity level and or congestion. They were found to be traditional because the consumer has her aura and chakras antecedently treated and normalized months before.

The aura will be sealed with a protecting seal of electrical violet lightweight with a program of divine protection being willed into the seal for a period till ensuing appointment, permitting depleted prana out of the body.

The energy that has been communicated is then stable and therefore the energy discharged to the consumer.

The consumer is suggested to not bathe or shower for 12-24 hours to help within the pranic healing absorption and potency.

The healing ends with a giving of due to the Divine spiritual being, to the non secular Helpers and nice Ones for his or her healings and blessings. So be it, so be it, so be it.
