Spiral Techniques is a specialized system of neuromuscular therapy that benefits everyone – the well-functioning as well as the injured – and works simultaneously on the physical, emotional and energetic levels of the mind/body constellation.
Formulated by Arthur Jaffe, the technique was developed over a period of several decades through careful study and integration of the world’s most powerful hands-on healing traditions, both Eastern and Western. Spiral Techniques is a system that is more penetrating and profound than massage and more whole-self integrative than chiropractic.
The exquisite myofascial, deep tissue release aspects of this work have been especially effective in mitigating and eliminating a wide range of painful, limiting conditions related to muscle/nerve interaction and soft tissue dysfunctions, whether acute or chronic, in young and old alike.

Your own words—about restoring the body I was born with—feel more descriptive than any others. The work you did with me feels more like a release than simply a relief. I think I am even breathing more deeply.
This is very big stuff that you do. THANK YOU!"

"When your body is out of whack, after years of suffering and being out of alignment, and are just about ready to give up, .... Along comes Art Jaffe. There are very few people who can really make a difference, and Art is one of those especially gifted people. He has created a way of freeing your body so, in just one or a few sessions, function returns and you feel comfortable inside your skin again.
It seems like a miracle has happened!
His desire to train people in this work is his passion. This was in obvious evidence when Art accompanied me to Haiti, where he taught and tirelessly treated many people during our stay there.
The work he did was amazing! And yes, we need more Arts in this universe."

He is, in a word, incomparable and he has my eternal gratitude for the good he has done my body and my health.”

I never knew how much I was holding in my body until I felt the relief from Art’s technique. I would recommend Art to anyone that is feeling anything from that discomfort of daily wear and tear to painful conditions that you mightthink were chronic. He’s definitely my go to guy for personal physical healing.”
