During each 60-minute Backhealer session, attendees go through a therapeutic series of breathing, massage, and other movements designed to help alleviate muscle stiffness, inflammation, and back pain. Sessions begin with a breathing exercise to improve the flow of oxygen throughout the body, followed by treatment with the Backhealer ball. Applied to specific muscles and soft tissues, the ball creates pressure that ultimately helps to expel waste from the muscles. The last component of a Backhealer session involves a series of movement patterns, each designed to thwart the reoccurrence of injury and or pain.
Each session allows for a maximum of eight students. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and to abstain from food in the two hours leading up to each session.
Born with mid-back scoliosis, missing discs in his lower back, and a reverse curve of the neck, Steve Butler endured his fair share of pain growing up. He understood firsthand—after seeing his father and sister undergo surgeries for similar ailments—that modern medicine was still not good enough. As he struggled with intense headaches, blackouts, and enough pain to keep him from walking for long periods of time, he began to explore alternatives, including Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and chiropractics—all to no avail. The answer, as it turned out, was all in his breath.
Today, Butler performs his specialized back-healing methods at his aptly named studio, The Backhealer. His method? In the simplest terms, Butler instructs his clients to lie down and breathe. By combining concise breathing techniques with pressure applied to specific tissues and muscles, Butler is able to help clients regain flexibility in their hips and back, and ultimately eliminate pain. He also combines the breathing and massage techniques with a series of exercises designed to reform the way the body moves and behaves, which in turn helps to reduce the chance of having reoccurring injuries or reoccurring nightmares about acrobats. As the founder of this movement, Butler also educates the masses through Backhealer training sessions, which equip his loyal followers with the tools to help others recover.
