I am a huge fan of Eden Energy Medicine – and especially a technique called the Spinal Flush. I didn’t realize just how amazing it was until recently.
A few weeks ago, my partner, Ryan, and I drove all the way to Florida from Colorado so we could visit my parents. The drive was about 30 hours without stops! Obviously, we had to break the trip into two days, but it was still fifteen to sixteen hour days of driving. While Ryan and I have done a lot of traveling over the last several years and are not strangers to long treks, this was a lot even for us.
But guess what? It turned out to be the most smooth and restorative trip we had ever had!
Here’s why we had such a great drive…
For this trip, I decided to do things a bit differently. We agreed to keep our driving time to two hour stretches and I chose to sleep or meditate when I wasn’t driving. Both of those things helped to make the trip much easier on my system.
We also did spinal flushes on each other with every stop and my body stayed much more flexible and grounded than on any other trip!
So what is a Spinal Flush?
A spinal flush is an Energy Medicine technique that helps to flush toxins and trapped energy by massaging down the sides of the spine. For this technique, firm pressure is essential to have the most benefits. I have heard Donna Eden (founder of Eden Energy Medicine) say this is a wonderful technique to do on your partner when you are feeling frustrated with them. You can take out that frustration on their back and help your partner feel better too! I have also found it very helpful when I am starting to feel ill or my hormones are out of balance. It is a really powerful technique!
If you would like to try it, you can watch Prune Harris (another favorite teacher of mine) demonstrating the technique in this video on You Tube: Spinal Flush
I hope you find it as helpful as I do!
