If you are sick of the struggle to relieve your pain
this could be a cracking opportunity for you.
How often do you see practitioners for the same pain, the same spot, the same experience.
Once it was a knee and now it is also the foot, the back, maybe into your backside and hips.
You might have tried massage or physio, maybe pilates and yet it’s still a problem. Maybe it kind of goes away but as soon as you stop YOUR regime it returns, much the same. You keep trying other people but this is not going away. Do you ask “is this it for me”?
You use that spiky ball, the foam roller, stretch this, activate that, work your core…but it’s never enough! Nothing is ever enough. You always need to keep up the routine.
What if I told you that the potential answer to your pain and frustration was available to be seen in the way you stand, walk and move. And if you learnt to move what is stiff/blocked/stuck, that your body may respond in kind and let go of the symptoms you feel.
Maybe you have felt out of whack, out of balance for so long that you have just accepted it as your normal…justified it with schoolbags or shoulder bags, poor posture, genetics, your occupation. Maybe that’s what you have been told. It’s just the way it is. That’s just you. Learn to live with it
That’s not what we think. We look deep into your history, where no one else has likely looked and work out why you feel the way you do. Keep reading.
These imbalances have a major impact on your body tension patterns, stretching it here and compressing it on the opposite side. It’s a push-pull system (ie. if you push it here, it will pull there and vice versa).
The reason we compensate throughout the body is that your brain, will always try to keep your eyes in a level position. The difficulty to move if your eyes are not level is considerable
Your body will adjust somewhere for every little imbalance just to keep those eyes level.
Eventually it’s a case of those adjustments going too far and you feel pain. Your pain is real. BUT it’s often not where the issue truly began.
How did it all start??
Consider one of your injuries or pains.
Have a think about how you wandered around with this injury.
How much you needed to protect it, support it, hold it for that time, you may be still doing it?
Well you are still doing it.
Consider that you created a new movement pattern that your body got used to…never returning to the pre-injury movement ability.
Your body will heal to a satifactory state AND NOT perfection.
Thing is we all have history. Our history creates a pattern of adaption. Those adaptions adopted have a snowball effect as each part of your body makes little adjustments to accommodate the initial adaption.
THE GOOD NEWS…that snowball effect can be undone, can be explored and recalibrated, can be re-patterned by your brain.
That feeling of “this is just the way I am”, doesn’t have to be just the way you are! I am proof of the pudding after 30 years of migraines. Now resolved. (CLICK HERE for my BLOG on the subject)
