Skin rolling is a great myofascial release technique that anyone can use on themselves. It's great to release restriction and help your body get back to good working order. The breath is the key so if you start to hold it, back off and be more gentle with yourself.
My work is all about finding the connections in the body. It's an easy way to get to the root of whatever issues or pain we have. This month's video blog is about just that.
Some people wonder which is more important, strength or flexibility. I hear arguments in support of both, so I'm talking about my thoughts on the subject along with a couple of exercises to support the wrists & spine because most of us spend way too much time sitting at desk. This month's video blog is under 8 minutes, have a listen and share you thoughts!
I know everyone's been raving about how great rollers are at myofascial release, but I think they're wrong. Take less than 6 minutes to watch this video and then tell me what you think.
I've been reading about infrared saunas so I decided to talk to someone who knows more about inflammation & kinesiology than I do. This month's video blog is an interview with Dr. Kantor of ChillSpace NYC. We're talking stress, it's affects on the body, & how infrared saunas can benefit you.
I have many clients come to me that have seen every other health professional under the sun and still struggle with pain. After talking to them, on thing that's consistent is that they didn't understand or have all the information necessary to make the best decision for them.

A lot of pain in the body can be relieved by moving or stretching out the muscles that're tight. Strengthening weak muscles that aren't doing their job to support you can also help, but let's take things one step at time. Try out each pose and then check in with your body to feel if it helped. Each body is different, so it's important to learn what works for yours.
