When young athletes are limited by the collapses and strains found in the body before the core distortion (structural spiral) is released, they are handicapped from the start. In my work I use kinesiology to evaluate muscle strength and function related to the core distortion. What has become obvious is that there is a 40% – 60% loss of strength and function of at least 1/3 of the major muscle groups in every young athlete when they start their athletic career.
Before discussing the reasons for treating seniors with Cranial/Structural core distortion releases, there are special considerations that are necessary when working with older clients. If you haven’t taken advanced training in working with seniors then you need to brush up on your pathology and medical contraindications. Often medical treatments administered by physicians can result in contraindications for massage.
