The Amazing Spinal Flush

If there is another person in the room as you are reading this then don’t let them leave….it will be of benefit to you both! One of the most simple and powerful energy techniques that you can share with another person is the spinal flush.

By massaging either side of the spine in the spaces between the vertebrae, you are able to affect change within the whole-body system.

And this is because these powerful points, known as Shu Points in Chinese medicine, work to stimulate and balance the meridian organ system, release stress, balance the movement of lymphatic fluid, bring balance to the nervous system and can even activate a special type of healing energy system called the Radiant Circuits.

Watch a demonstration of the spinal flush here.

One of the primary reasons for the Radiant Circuit activation is simply that you are in the amazing position of being able to give and to receive healing, caring energy with another person. Never underestimate the effect of sharing touch in helping your system move towards health and joy. It is one of my daily delights to give a spinal flush to my husband and to get one in return.

If there isn’t another person with whom you can exchange a spinal flush then it is still possible for you to bring the same benefits to your whole-body system by massaging some points on your front.

This picture shows the positioning of the the points on the front of the body that you can massage - you can watch me do this in this video of the daily energy routine.

I have yet to meet anyone who can’t give a good spinal flush, but it can take time and feedback before you get it right. So be patient with yourself and your partner as you are learning - ask if the pressure is correct - the objective is to massage each point as deeply as is possible without causing pain. You will find that some days there are certain points that give a lot of discomfort, and these are the very points that need to be worked with the most, in order to bring balance to the specific meridians organ system represented by the painful point.

Today as my husband gave me a spinal flush, the stomach point was really sore (it made me yelp!). That lets me know that the Stomach meridian organ system needs some extra attention today. I will work my stomach neurolymphatic points throughout the day to help continue to bring balance and health to this system.

In general, a spinal flush can help bring balance to:

  • Fatigue

  • Dizziness

  • Lack of grounding

  • Nausea

  • Indigestion

  • Negative emotions

  • Digestive issues

  • The nervous system

  • Insomnia

  • Hormonal imbalances

  • (Really, the list is endless…..)

And as with all energy approaches, the more regularly you do a spinal flush the greater the benefits as superficial imbalances become non-existent and the deeper health challenges are able to be addressed.

I hope you enjoy getting and giving a spinal flush.

With love, Prune
