Improve Your Balance with this Simple Exercise. 11/09/2022

There are a couple of studies making the news, such as this one in Popular Mechanics (https://www.popularmechanics.com/science/health/a41886676/longevity-one-leg-balance-test/), about your ability to stand on one leg and how it relates to your longevity. So, if you want to live longer, we have your magic balance elixir in our Youtube video: https://youtu.be/NqlalgH8wvI

Every once-in-a-while one of my clients brings in a family member in need. My client brought her husband who had a heel spur. In the pic I'm using a percussion massager on the arch of the clients foot to release the pressure on the tendon attachment where the spur was happening. This was after some toe curls, heel lifts, and ankle circle exercises, as well as some what-not-to-do tips to prevent the heel spur from getting worse. We ended with some Kinesiology tape on his arch and calf. For more info on the exercises I used, as well as how I used the tape, check out my video, "Relieve pain in the arch and heel of your foot (Plantar Fasciitis)" on my Youtube channel (https://youtu.be/QyGG-wbvc4Y).


Now that is one extensive Kinesio taping! This wonderful soul was in a car accident that not only caused injuries but threw his nervous system into a tizzy. The docs had pretty much given up on him and told him to just rest, as they couldn't figure out why he was in so much pain. When he and I first started working together his body would shiver, his limbs would go numb and he would almost pass out from the work. His body was in a constant state of fear, causing muscle spasms and pain. We did as much mental/emotional work as we did physical work. The K-tape helped relax his muscles, like giving them a hug. I am happy to say that after a few sessions his body no longer goes numb, nor does it convulse. He is doing more and more exercises every day. It is a lesson that injuries and accidents don't just cause physical pain, they have an emotional toll too, and it must be addressed to heal the body.

Can You Control Pain with Your Mind? — Thrive Global 02/19/2020

This article address something that I talk to every client about. You can’t separate your mind and emotions from your injury. In fact, your mindfulness about your pain should be a tool you use to facilitate healing.

“According to Harvard Medical School, mind-body therapies might be able to alleviate pain because pain involves both our minds and bodies: ‘How you feel pain is influenced by your genetic makeup, emotions, personality, and lifestyle. It’s also influenced by past experience. If you’ve been in pain for a while, your brain may have rewired itself to perceive pain signals even after the signals aren’t being sent anymore.’”

Don’t forget your back! Working the back is so important to counter balance everything we do in our daily lives with the front of our body.


This apparatus is the ‘Chair’ - it May look unassuming but you will feel it’s work the next day for sure! My favorite thing about the Chair is it forces you to stabilize and work musculature in an eccentric fashion.


Stay safe from the fires (and air quality) everyone..... and eat your almonds!


First pic: Single leg bridges are a great way to train your body to cross stabilize the hips and lower back, which can reduce injuries in the lower back. It’s also a great hamstring (back of leg) and gluteus (butt) strengthener.

Second pic: PRO TIP: After doing single leg bridges it’s best to do a set of regular bridges, where both feet are on the floor. This will help to reset and stabilize you hip joint, preventing pain and injuries after the bilateral work of the single leg bridges.
