Clients with alkalysing spondylosis


Hello there

Has anyone had any experience with massaging clients with alkylising spondylosis?
Not a sports type massage, but a very gentle,tension relieving treatment. I realise that this is contraindicated, but I would like to hear our more experienced practitioner's comments.

Many thanks

Ankylosing Spondylitis does not need to be progressing so fast. You may be able to halt or slow down the progress by doing a massage with EFT, which is what I do. I have pioneered the use of this technique mixture and got it down to a fine art. The originator of EFT and many other therapists have my article about it on their websites, which is just great. Basically, we deal with all the physiological and emotuiional contributors to the disease by helping the client heal from within with EFT. EFT is a bit of a misnomer as Emotional Freedom Techniques. I use it a great deal in my work, as I am a full-time practitioner specialising in EFT and Reiki for physical conditions. I teach this too if you are intereted, and the courses are approved by Embody and have CPD credits. The EFT used is not the classical Basic Recipe but an adaptation especially for massage. It involves acupressure on the client (not on the neck) whilst saying things to stimulate the strengthening of their body from within. My only and deep regret is that some of my clients did not come to me earlier (if you work with chronic disease, you'll understand where I'm coming from), as we have halted or seriously slowed down the progress of their condition, and there is some permanent damage from before, eg with the fusing of joints, which I could do nothing about. If you do EFT and want to have a chat, please feel free to call my mobile on 07939 72 39 24 for advice.

Just noticed spelling mistake, here's the real deal:
