I’m so delighted that you came across my page. Let me explain what I can do for you.
Growing up, we didn’t get an owner’s manual for our bodies. When we suffer an injury, or we feel pain that seemingly came out of nowhere, we blame our bodies, and we’re frustrated and understandingly disheartened. I want you to know that there is always a very good reason for that pain. You just don’t understand it (yet).
Most of us have never learned the proper way to move, despite the misleading name “Physical education”. We learn the rules of games like soccer or baseball. We learn how to score and that the one who runs faster than everyone else wins. Early on the More is Better mindset got so deeply ingrained into our subconscious that we don’t even consider any other options anymore.
With the help of great healers like physical therapists, chiropractors or other body workers, you can recover from this injury, but if you go back to your sport or activity you put your body into the same environment that made you suffer the strain or injury.
It’s a (downward) spiral. The older we get, the harder it is to bounce back, and it's not because of the age of our bones or muscles or joints.
I don’t believe that our body parts wear out after a certain amount of time and have to be replaced. Our body rebuilds itself down to the bone every 7 years. This means technically we can have a completely different body after 7 years.
The reality is that we have habits and we spend the next decade moving inefficiently, namely exactly like before.
This site is dedicated to explaining to you patterns of movement that are beneficial instead of destructive to your tissues, like bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments etc.
If you know how to move with correct alignment, then you will be pain-free. We can perform our sports and jobs with ample energy and endurance and we can enjoy active lives for many many happy years to come.
Coming full circle - if in fact, you know yourself really well, then nothing can stop you.
What's your movement related problem? I'd love to offer some insight into what might be the cause of the discomfort or pain.
