Introduction to Spinology

Spinologists envision a world where people dwell in harmony, and seek to bring that about by helping people to express their full life potential. Spinology is based upon a profound respect for that totality of life and the fact that the nerve system maintains the totality by directing all function.

The human body consists of some 85 to 100 billion cells, working together for expressing full life potential. It is obvious that coordination of the thousands and thousands of biological processes necessary to maintain life is dependent upon a control system. The brain, spinal cord and millions of miles of nerve fibers form the control system in human beings.

A framework of solid bone protects this magnificent communications network. The brain, enclosed in a housing known as the skull, has extensions reaching out to virtually every organ and tissue in the body.

The most vulnerable part of the system is an extension of the brain known as the spinal cord.

This vital and vulnerable lifeline is housed within 24 movable bones that comprise the spinal column, or “backbone”. These spinal bones protect the delicate nerve trunks.

Should a bone of the spine become jarred from its proper position, the bones could compress the very nerve trunks they are meant to protect. Such compression interferes with the flow of nerve impulses, and the 85 to 100 billion cells of the body can no longer work together as one functional unit.

The individual then is no longer able to express full life potential.

The purpose of Spinology is the correction of such interference. Under ideal circumstances, the body’s own spinal muscles position and reposition vertebrae according to body need.

When there are spinal misalignments, known in Spinology as “spinal occlusions”, they are unable to complete this task.

The Spinologist, therefore, is trained first to identify how the body is trying to move its vertebrae, and then, if necessary, to thrust gently upon the any misaligned segment of the spine so that the body’s muscles can use the energy of the thrust to complete their work.

Hence, the need for any outside help, the place and direction of such help and the actual correction of the misalignment are all controlled by the innate wisdom of life itself, and not by the Spinologist. Spinologists try to work with life’s wisdom, not to supersede it.

Opportunities when studying Spinology

As a career choice, Spinology offers outstanding opportunities:

• Study at your own pace
• Strong employment opportunities upon graduation
• Belong to the fastest growing profession committed to optimizing human performance
• Professional assistance throughout your student and professional career

European Spinology Tutorium follows the same policy as the prior Philadelphia and San Francisco Spinology Tutoria (schools).

We believe that a person’s persistence and strength of character are the most effective measures of him or her to become a success in the
field of Spinology.

Students come from all backgrounds, and every assistance is provided to ensure all criteria are met throughout the course of the studies.

This is not a distance program where people are left to fend for themselves. It is highly tailored and extremely interactive.

There is huge public demand for the services offered by a Spinologist, and nobody other than Spinologists are sufficiently equipped to provide those services. Spinology offers a rewarding and fulfilling career, limited only by any restrictions that the Spinologist
places upon him or herself.

Spinologists are highly trained in a professional program which fully prepares the student for practice life. Once graduated, Spinologists can begin their own practices or become an associate in an existing center. They can practice almost anywhere in the world and can expect immediate employment, with strong levels of career satisfaction and high professional-level incomes.

• You will be equipped with the necessary skills and abilities to contribute immediately to the well-being of your community.
• You will not be alone as you will have a very dedicated support system you can tap into at any time.
• Graduates will receive a Certificate of Proficiency in Spinology, as well as, for those who desire to become and practice as a Certified Spinologist, a Diploma in Spinology issued by the European Spinology Tutorium after the signature of the Code of Ethics.

Spinology is a life-enhancement profession promoting optimal performance and function of the body by identifying and correcting spinal occlusions.

• Spinal occlusions are destructive on every tier of our life, from our energy levels and moods, to our creativity and capacity to work, and our ability to deal with stress, to our levels of resistance to disease
• Anybody wanting to get the best out of life should see a Spinologist!

Spinology, concepts and philosophy of work

Although the profession of Spinology is very new, its philosophy draws upon a broad variety of philosophical concepts, both classical and modern. Its truth does not belong uniquely to Spinology, for truth cannot become the exclusive property of any group. Nevertheless, while others also express much or all of the truth expressed in our philosophy, our approach to the application of that truth in the field of wellness and performance is uniquely ours, and makes us different from all other professions.

The practice of Spinology would appear, on the surface, to bear some resemblance to the healing arts practices of chiropractic, osteopathy and others, but such appearance is deceptive.

Spinology is neither a therapy nor a healing art. Spinologists are not doctors.

We do not diagnose or treat disease, or give advice or referrals about disease. The philosophy of Spinology recognizes that for human potential to be fully expressed all aspects of life, tangible and intangible must interact harmoniously together. Such harmonious interaction is dependent upon the nerve system, which integrates and coordinates every expression of life.

The practice of Spinology seeks to maintain the mechanical integrity of the spine so that the nerve system, free from interference, can in fact integrate and harmonize every expression of life.

The ultimate objective of Spinology is to restore human beings to harmonious unity of mind, body and spirit for the fulfilment of their life potential. Only when people are thus restored to harmony within themselves can they express all of their potential and achieve harmony with others for a better world.

Our Facilities

We have specially prepared facilities facilities enabled to facilitate the courses. A place to be at ease and in tranquility.

Interesting Questions

Yes, actually, we have a blended learning course. It is a different type of learning Spinology, using e – learning for the theoretical part of the training program, and having intensive onsite seminars.

The practice of Spinology is a skill, which must be learned by regular hands – on – training, and practice. This crucial component of the program requires intensive classroom seminars announced promptly in the website of the school

Absolutely, not. Spinology requires skill and sensitivity, not brute strength.

It therefore offers exceptional career opportunities to both men and women, regardless of their physical stature.

Certain handicaps may prevent one from becoming a Spinologist, while others such as blindness or loss of lower body control may not be a problem at all.

Therefore, each situation will be evaluated individually.

We are not interested in making comparisons, but rather, in training each individual to become the best Spinologist she or he can become.

We, therefore, have only two grades: ready-to-continue, or not-yet-ready-tocontinue. Each individual thus proceeds at his or her own pace until each stage is mastered before moving on to the next.

New groups start twic

Opportunities for Certified Spinologists are excellent! Graduates are expected to enter private practice, either alone or in association with other Spinologists.

Income potential will be determined by the same intangible of skill, personality and willingness to work that determine the success of any other professional practice.

While the success level of any graduate is largely determined by the individual, specific subjects are directed toward success training, motivation and good, sound, ethical business procedures.

Additionally, plans are being developed for national advertising campaigns to stimulate public demand for Spinology services.

Consistent with our philosophy, our policy is to open our doors to all who have, or are able to develop, the necessary aptitudes regardless of prior educational background. We do not want to exclude any capable person because of lack of such background. Furthermore, we are not satisfied that any combination of aptitude or achievement tests scores can predict performance. Reliance upon such scores might permit some good test-takers to be accepted, and some good future Spinologists to be rejected.

Such intangibles as interest, enthusiasm and sensitivity are of paramount importance. Therefore, we have chosen to use the first three modules of the training program itself as a screening procedure. In this way, school and enrolee may appraise and evaluate each other. If either the enrolee or the school decides termination of training, tuition fees will be refunded in accordance to the policy stated previously.

To our knowledge, no regulations exist in Europe or elsewhere to restrict the practice of Spinology. In Spain, for instance, the profession has started satisfactorily its protocol towards regulation. Eventually, Irish Spinologists will follow the same path. In other countries of Europe, it is just a matter of adapting the practice of Spinology to their regulations without jeopardizing the philosophy of the profession. The U.S. has stated laws that differ greatly. Each state has a governing body to make specific decisions in such areas. The fact
that Spinology does not offer a service as a healing art facilitates the task everywhere.
