Me to HS Football Player: What is more intense? The tool or my hands? No hesitation…”Your hands, they feel like hot pain!” 🤔🤣
Before/After 60 minute session. If you happened to be within a 1 block radius of the office - you would have heard a wee bit of cussing during this session. 🤔 2 days later, my quiet soft spoken client said she felt her session resembled Steve Carell, when he got his chest waxed in the movie, “40 Year Old Virgin”. 🤔Yup! 🤣
I have just conditioned my table for the first time in more than 2 decades-thanks to Oakworks making the best quality tables. Even though this model was discontinued a long time ago, it has ridden the tides of time while traveling to many continents supporting the likes of Rock Stars, NFL, NBA, and MLB Players, Olympic athletes and more. We may be old…but we keep on keepin’ on!
Happy New Year’s! My New Year’s/Birthday tradition is to toss white flowers into the ocean in conjunction with making wishes or goals for the New Year’s. This years tradition was interesting…I almost threw up. I forgot that although I am an adrenaline j***y - I’m afraid of heights. 🤦🏽‍♀️ Heights w/o an adrenaline boost = 🤢 . This year, I added another tradition as well - feeding the homeless. Thank you Trish and Luca for letting me join you guys! You guys are da best! Heading into 2022 - everyone please stay healthy, never take anything for granted and be happy. Ha’oli Makahiki Hou!
So crazy! Thank you Denise for mailing pics of us from a long, long time ago and sending me on a trip down memory lane!
Happy Happy!
“Ui has made me feel better than I have in 6 months. I’ve tried everything to relieve my back pain - she fixed me!” - Jen C.
I can’t remember the last time I received a handwritten testimonial - let alone cursive writing-WHAT?! 👏🏻 On another note, this gal was able to return to her sport for the first time in months after 1 session. She then became a return client the following week - when she decided to play 3 matches of her sport within a few days time because she was so excited to play sports once again. When you have been out of commission for 6 months or more, note to self: please start out slow! 🤦🏽‍♀️
Yes.
“Welcome Back!” I was invited to work the 2021 Invictus Games in September, an international sporting event for injured, wounded or sick servicemen and women, both serving and veterans. Sadly, due to Covid, these games were cancelled. So bummed. That same day or the next, I received an email from the WTA-1) Are you vaccinated? And 2) would you like to work the 2021 BNP Paribas tournament again. H-ll yeah! I came, I worked…I’m out! Thank you WTA for another amazing opportunity.🤔🤨🤣💯💃🏻

Down time is an opportunity to learn or in my case re-learn ankle taping - which was never my thing. 🤔 But our Physio Team is top notch and took the time to teach quick tips! The trainers here are Physical therapists with doctorates and we basically have super educated doctors and or above average educated and skilled specialists in all aspects of health care….and guess what? They all work “DEEP”! Like Ui Deep! H-LL YEAH! I have missed working with the big guns!

New Client, Football Player, complaints of chronic residual lower leg tightness from an injury that occurred a year ago. During session, he achieved full posterior chain results (back of body) that exceeded his expectations. I was trying to explain why he got those results: “Can you feel the difference between body work and myofascial work?” His response: “YOU ARE GOD!” 🤔 Usually, I hear the opposite! 🤣 Myofascial work was the missing component he needed but the results he achieved were all due to the work he has done and the practitioners he has worked with over the last couple months. Sometimes it takes a village! His village was above par! 🙌💯

👏🏻 I miss performing Sports Therapy with competitive athletes! Working with this body builder during her competition days-🔥! I love SD but I have failed at transitioning the locals off the table! The most frustrating question I hear the most from everyone that flies or drives in is: “I’m confused, why do they call what you do “Massage”?”. 🤨 Consequently, I’m throwing in the towel in trying to transition SD peeps off the table and into Sports Therapy. Stay tuned, new fascial work specializing in strength in mobility geared towards specific athletes is on the way! I intend to reclaim Competitive Edge and working with athletes once again! 🙌

A daily surfer-before and after 1 session. Reason for visit: pain or fatigue during her "pop up" while surfing wearing a full wetsuit. She has seen multiple practitioners plus had a 90 min massage w/in 2 days of our session. Post session she left the office with a walk that made her look like a different person and a decrease in pain during a “mock” pop up. 👏🏻👏🏻 Basic things to look for when watching someone walk (and the easiest to see for those not trained): Do their hips and shoulders move freely? Do their elbows and knee’s bend easily? Do they shift their weight evenly from left to right as well as from right to left?

I’m getting old but I survived Bnp 2022! Huge thanks go to the WTA for once again putting up with me. 🤣 These tourney’s keep getting better and better…and yet, every tourney is different.

Indian Wells BNP - R U READY 4 ME? Getting ready to head out and my morning is already on 🔥! First hour of the day- I found a buck! “A dollar more than when I started!”
H-ll yeah! 🙌 I then went to the store and decided to get starbucks…and was greeted in line by the most cheerful and very popular (even at 8a on a Sunday) sharp dressed man in the best fedora ever: “Chicken” Gabriel, who bought my drink! ❤️ Thank you Mr. Gabriel! Contract #3 is gonna rock! Let’s do this!

Since my first sporting adventure with elite athletes in 1996 - I have always loved sneaking into the empty stadiums…right up until security would chase me out. These days - where the athletes can roam..I get to roam-even if it’s through the athlete tunnel entrance. Whoop whoop! However…I typically avoid the chaos and so my favorite time to enjoy the stadiums is … in between matches while the crews close down for cleaning! Status: currently enjoying a solo covid safety dinner…well…not totally solo as half the security team is doing the same thing. 🤣

Benefits of a 30 second (self) hand massage - geared to reduce muscle guarding: increased lateral flexion in the neck. 🔥👏🏻🤣

So these two: This guy walks in and says, “I’m a Massage Therapist. My client flew to Cali to see you. You helped her plus you completely changed her energy. I immediately asked her to refer me to you & I booked a massage. I flew here because I’m hoping you can help me plus I want to learn what you did to help her.” 💯
Usually, when massage therapists or other body workers come in to experience my work - I cringe! Typically, I spend the whole session listening to them telling me: You work too deep, too fast or that’s now how I learned this technique in school or you need to work “slow” so my muscles can relax. 🤨 I’m so impressed with these two, both massage therapists - they walked in and said: Do what you do-we want to get better! 🙌🏼👏🏻💯

It was a whirlwind of a weekend up in LA- there are so many people I missed or couldn’t see but stoked to catch a few former USA Indoor and Beach Volleyball Team practitioners and athletes that I have worked with. Coincidentally: Huge congrats 🙌🏼 to these Hawaii boys for winning the AVP Manhattan Beach Open yesterday! Yayus!
👏🏻💯🔥🤙🏼

Getting juiced! My first IV ever with Jenny, our Rockstar nurse here at Livkraft.

08/09/2021

“I haven’t been getting deep sleep recently and asked Ui for some help. She asked me if I was stressing about something daily. I said No. There is nothing I really stress over. She touched my arm and was able to pinpoint that I was dealing with a combination of boredom and nervousness which tied into a loss of a pet. My dog has had some health issues but I wasn’t actually upset about posdibly losing my dog until she said that. She clarified that it didn’t mean death and then I realized, she was right. Yesterday, I was thinking I would love to move back to Australia but I probably wouldn’t be able to take my dog with me.” G-wellness advisor

The DISADVANTAGE of being an employee for the first time in decades…is that moment when your boss says: I need a copy of your certification. Me: 🤔 F——! (And i rarely use the F-word!) 🤦🏽‍♀️🤣

Pay attention to the right shoulder and left hip of this gal’s body and the instability that can happen balance-wise. Video’s are before and after 1 session. Our focus is movement not postural/structural deviations. ❤️ working with kids!

08/02/2021

I have been hobbling around since Thursday, patiently waiting to see one of the chiro’s at Livkraft-my foot has been killing me😩. Cj took a look at my foot and does the first ever behind the back adjustment I have ever experienced. 😳 There’s a reason he works with the Padre’s! 👏🏻 I’m so fortunate to work directly with so many amazing practitioners - I can walk again! 🙌🏼💯
