Modern vs. Ancient Movement ArtsWe’ve come a long way since our time as cavemen & cavewomen…or have we?

Some of the movement practices today can be traced back to ancient times when those were forced to run, fight, and actually hunt food on their own. We as humans have evolved, but have we evolved to be sitting behind a desk for 8 hours per day? I think not. Proper joint motion and alignment is imperative prior to embarking on any of the following movement arts so be sure to get checked by your local motion and alignment specialist. Here’s a few of these new workouts that are increasing in popularity, and some coincidentally referred to as “primal training”.

THE OLD MACE…. upgraded from your basic club in the Paleolithic era, these predominantly metal weapons were used both while on horseback and by foot soldiers. They oftentimes included sharp objects at the ends with the ability to pierce their opponents’ armor.

ENTER THE NEW MACE… while it resembles the old mace in the metal club aspect, the maces designed for training these days are predominantly steel and have a ball on one end (sometimes on both ends). There are a myriad of exercises that can be done with the steel mace and one can utilize multiple muscle groups in a short training session.

The combat arts of ancient times were …let’s say…lacking sportsmanship. Alright they were more like death battles. They would require brute upper body strength, unshakable grip strength, a kill or be killed attitude. Some of these included spear fighting, wresting, and death boxing.

These days the mixed martial arts take bits and pieces of ancient movement arts in disciplines like Judo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu both allowing one to work on controlling the opponent. Of course the option to tap out is a nice alternative in assuring you’ll see future training sessions  😉

These are just a couple of great ways to stay in shape while sticking to the roots of ancient movement.

Peter R.

Dr. Jeremy Brook is simply the BEST. He’s extremely talented at what he does, and he’s smart and articulate – he’s everything you’d want a doctor to be — but with none of the usual difficulties that folks so often talk about when dealing with health care professionals. What do I mean by that? So many medical types lack social skills, and even if they are technically good, they can’t communicate with you. Jeremy, however, is an extraordinary communicator — and can show you precisely how and why he’s doing what he’s doing — he’s a great doctor if you like understanding the treatment process.

Energy is important in life, and the energy that Jeremy puts into his work shows his true passion for it. The guy just loves what he does, and that comes through in every detail of his practice and his life. He runs a happy office, as a result, and a friendly one — and it’s just so refreshing to have that experience. Jeremy cares — not in a bullshit sales way — but in a genuine, decent, human heart way.

None of this would matter if Jeremy was not an superlative healer — but he is.My own family has lots of medical folks in it and I grew up with the very ‘western’ idea that surgery and pills were superior to ‘alternative’ cures. But my entire adult life has been a slow realization that this is wrong. Just dead wrong — on a practical level! Look at what traditional medicine can offer the average back pain sufferer. Not much! But Jeremy’s methods are a brilliant combination of western and eastern techniques. I got interested in seeing Jeremy after he had completely eliminated my wife’s longstanding pain. Bottom line — Jeremy is a pain eliminator and a body energizer.

He is, just as the ‘Rating’ stars I’ve picked to indicate it, is woohoo! As good as it gets.

I started going to the Life Center Chiropractic a couple years ago after meeting Dr. Jeremy Brook at anatomy workshop he was giving at a yoga teacher training. I was impressed by his holistic approach to healing and I was tired of low back pain and chronic headaches.

You can not find a nicer office. Joanne, Niko and Meghan make scheduling appointments (even at the last minute) incredibly easy, pleasant, and flexible. The Life Center space is peaceful and well organized. It is apparent even the first time a person walks in that impeccable attention has been given to every detail of the office’s atmosphere. It is a place that cultivates and encourages mindfulness (i.e. interesting music selections, shoes off at the door, phones silenced, etc. )

After my first month of adjustments I stopped having pressure headaches and I haven’t had one since. This is a condition …


Chiropractic Adjustment Yes we did make a music video! Why? Because the chiropractic adjustment is amazing with  helping relieve neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, stress, low back pain, sciatica, digestive problems, poor sleep….and more. It’s also about getting you reconnected to life! We believe that there is a strongest…most aligned, connected, and energized version of you… and it is our job to help you uncover it so you can reach maximum potential.

At The Life Center Chiropractic we believe that the chiropractic adjustment isn’t just a highly skilled technical procedure. It is an artform.  And you can absolutely expect to receive the most specific, precise, smooth adjustment adjustment when you come to our office.

Brainal Cord DamageIn this video Dr. Jeremy Brook offers a new perspective on your spinal cord…by calling it “The Brainal Cord.”

What does Spinal Cord Injury mean?

By shifting the nomenclature from spinal cord injury to brainal cord damage you will develop more respect and reverence for the central nerve channel. Dr. Brook suggests approaching your spinal cord as if it is an extension…an elongation….a tail of your brain. With that awareness you will care for your spine in the same manner as you would your head protecting your brain.

Make decreasing brainal cord damage a part of your daily practice to reduce pain, increase your mobility, become more energized, and experience life at your maximum potential!

Slacklining BenefitsSlacklining is a fantastic sport that integrates core strength and balance coupled with laser sharp concentration.  Slacklining benefits you on a primal level. It requires holistic attention from your body and mind.It challenges your neuro-musculo-skeletal system like no other exercise out there! If you aren’t connecting to your breath, feet, and core…prepare to meet the floor. Have fun and be safe!

So how do you begin? First, go barefoot. Then, when you’re first on the line, lean back slightly so that as soon as you step forward, you don’t commit until you fully shift your weight onto the ball of your lead foot. Look to a fixed point at the end of the line, keeping your upper body still and your knees bent. Lead with the hips, not the shoulders.

One of the coolest slacklining benefits occurs when you stand up on one foot. Balancing on your foot becomes the focus. This concentration requires you to find the perfect weight distribution for that moment in time. The leg becomes a lightning rod. From the connection to the slackline you root and rebound upward. Another slacklining benefit is connecting lines of energy. It sounds like an abstract concept but when you connect to different points and centers in the body you learn how to stand tall, fully connected to your core.

Scientific Studies on Slacklining Benefits:

In 2010, the International Journal of Sports Medicine published a paper (Granacher et. al, 2010)  investigating the effect of slackline training for balance and strength promotion. While the study found no direct evidence that slacklining made strength training more effective, it did find that slacklining increased the rate of development of a muscular contraction. In other words, the given strength tasks were able to be performed faster by participants involved in slackline training.

A study published in 2011 (Hüfner et. al, 2011) found that slacklining led to an increase in the structural and functional plasticity of the hippocampus, an area of the brain responsible for navigation and memory. While nobody pretends to understand the exact workings of the human brain, this study is backed up by numerous others that show that exercise and complex movement is good for the brain and helps with learning.

The final study that we will discuss here was conducted in Switzerland (Keller, 2011) and found that participants in slackline training improved communication between sensors and the spinal cord, resulting in better postural control. This may come as a surprise to some, who may have seen many a slackliner with a hunched back and terrible posture, but keep in mind that most slackliners today were originally (and probably still consider themselves primarily) climbers, a group notorious for over-development of certain muscles and ignorance of others, resulting in terrible posture.
