Spinal Flow



Spinal Flow® is a healing technique that helps relieving pain, symptoms and dis-ease by using the innate ability of the body and the nervous system-brain connection to release spinal blockages and promote wellbeing.

Founded by Dr Carli Axford, this healing modality is very gentle, yet extremely powerful in guiding the body to naturally release any stored stress, allowing it to move from a sympathetic (fight/flight/freeze) state into parasympathetic (heal, rest and digest) state.


Spinal Flow® Technique effectively enable the body to connect to the ease that exists within, locate blockages that cause symptoms like pain or illness, and activate healing. This is facilitated by a Certified Spinal Flow® Technique practitioner through 33 access points on the spine, which enable the nervous system to connect to the spinal blockage and release it.

How does it work

The nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) controls and coordinates everything in your body. When your nerve energy flows abundantly without obstruction, your body and mind are self-communicating, self-healing and self-regulating.

When the body doesn’t have the tools to fully process and release the emotional, physical or chemical stress it experiences, this stress can create interference (blockages) in the communication between the brain and the nervous system. This reduces the energy flow and consequently your level of health and vitality. As every organ, muscle, tissue and cell in your body is supplied by the nervous system, blockages overtime can show up as pain, symptoms or dis-eases.


The body’s natural stress response

According to the medical dictionary, “Stress is the body’s normal response to anything that disturbs its natural physical, emotional, or mental balance.”

Our body is naturally designed to deal with short bursts of stress, but is not designed to sustain this condition of heightened tension of fight:flight:freeze for a long time.

In our modern life work, relationships, money problems, traffic, bad news on television, opinions on social media, exposure to strong electromagnetic fields, fear of alienation, peer pressures (just to name a few..) are continue sources of stress.

Increased stress levels and the stress response is triggered hundreds of times throughout the day and night, compounded by the lifetime of stress that has built up and is still stuck in the nervous system. While in fight:flight the stress is stored in our body, and the body often remains in fight:flight until the stress is no longer there. But for many people the stress never goes away, which means that the body never has the time and space to heal and re-balance.


The power of Spinal Flow

Spinal Flow Technique moves the body from a stress zone into a healing zone – or from the sympathetic response into a parasympathetic response –and frees up your life force to flow and enable healing to happen.

All living beings possess a natural healing intelligence (Body Innate Intelligence) that has the ability to maintain and sustain life. This intelligence is what moves us into a state of ease and wellbeing. It is contained within the nervous system and travels along the spine, feeding every cell in our body. If our nervous system becomes blocked, overloaded or stressed, then this natural flow is disrupted, creating pain, dis-ease or illness. When we reinstate this flow, we create the optimal condition for the body to heal and re-balance.


Spinal Flow healing

There are 33 access points of the spine, that enable the body to connect to the wellbeing within. These access points allow to send a message through the spinal cord to the brain to unleash healing. This is done by making a gentle contact with these access points that are located where the dura mater is close to the skin – around the sacrum and cranium –


Your Spinal Flow Sessions

First Session (90-120 minutes): $ 75

During your first appointment we will discuss your present condition (pain, symptoms and dis-ease) as well as we will do a series of assessments (check your posture and spinal blockages). I will also give you an overview about the technique and answer any questions you may have before going into the healing.

IMPORTANT: Before your first Spinal Flow session you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire containing several questions. It is highly recommended to arrive with the form already compiled. This will ensure that you had plenty of time to ponder the questions before answering, as well as it won’t take any time  off your healing session.



Following Sessions (60 minutes): $ 75

Your Spinal Flow sessions (after the first one) will be mainly dedicated to the healing, with a brief check and discuss about your state and improvements.



What does spinal flow session feel like?

The majority of people find a spinal flow session very relaxing, somehow similar to a deep meditation.

And for some it is the first time they experience a deep connection to their bodies!


What are the side effects of spinal flow technique?

The most commonly reported side effect of this therapy is a dull, achy soreness for the first few days after the session, as the spine realigns and body becomes accustomed to the changes.


How many sessions do I need?

The number and frequency of sessions depends on your condition and the type and number of blockages that need to be released. Spinal Flow is a very gentle technique and it is your body “deciding” how the healing needs to be happen in the most efficient and organic way.


What conditions can Spinal Flow help with?


Every organ, muscle, tissue and cell in your body is supplied by the nervous system, and pain, symptoms or dis-eases are often caused by stress and blockages accumulated in one or more gateways of the spine. By re-establishing the flow of energy (life force) and the optimal communication between the brain and the nerves, Spinal Flow helps to bring ease and wellbeing into every part of the body.

It is also a very valuable technique to help re-establishing or strengthening the connection with your higher powers and deepening your inner work.
