THE JOLT OF INJURY

Injuries can be disrupting to the flow of life, especially if you’re an active lifestyle enthusiast who uses movement to keep your body firm and tight and your mind calm and sane. The hard part about injuries may not necessarily be the actual physical injury, but your mindset in dealing with it.

The lifespan of an injury has a few interconnected phases. The first phase is the initial trauma, which is followed by an uncomfortable period before the final phase, which is the recovery phase. How you navigate through these phases of your injury will determine your success in integrating the injury in order to heal. Failure to integrate and care for the injury carefully will result in frustration and dysfunction due to predictable aggravations and exacerbations that come with miscaring for it.

This journey of healing requires patience, persistence and dancing with your ego. The ego is all about “wanting.” Sometimes our wants get in the way of the healing process. We want to do a certain activity so much that we keep doing it even if it is inflaming and re-injuring the area- a self-sabotaging cycle.

It is critical to understand the basic nature of injuries. There are certain causes of trauma or injury, which are physical, chemical, or emotional level that has disrupted the equilibrium of your bodymind constitution. This disruption in your constitution results in disorganization, leading to an overly sensitive nervous system. This produces rigid neuromuscular patterns that disrupts your performance and proprioception and sets the scene for an injury. It’s here at the level of the nervous system that injuries are born.

Becoming aware of the tone of your nervous system should be second nature. But unfortunately, due to a bewildering amount of outward stimulation we lose the ability to appropriately tune inward to our “state of flow and ease.” We don’t pay attention to the body signals alerting us that a departure from “flow and ease” is occurring. We enter into a state of strain and that’s when we get the jolt of injury. The injury is the WAKE UP siren since we have ignored the softer signals.

After the initial injury, comes the awkward uncomfortable phase which also includes the “I’m slowly starting to feel better” stage. This is the phase where many people struggle. They struggle with the fact that they’re starting to feel better and want to jump back to the same intensity of training they were doing when the injury happened. It is critical to be aware of the ego struggle at this point as failure to allow for a full healing and integration. Many people get stuck in this battle, and the battle is real. This is where you need to negotiate with your injury. You’re not going to avoid all activities all together, but you need to move intelligently to allow your injury to breathe, expand and contract at a free-flowing rate. Failure to do so will cause you to stay stuck in this awkward phase consuming …

ARCHETYPAL FLOOR POSTURE SEQUENCE (WORKSHOP)

IMG_0539 3From Reptile to Erectile … From all 4’s to 2 Feet!

This workshop/class is designed to increase your primal agility of your spine, hips, knee, and feet as well as protection from degeneration and dis-ease.

The ARCHETYPAL FLOOR POSTURE SEQUENCE workshop is for two types of people. The first is for the person looking to get maximum performance out of their body by exploring different shape combinations that are required for optimal function. The second is for the person struggling with mobility limitations who desires to increase their strength, flexibility, and function, while decreasing pain, degeneration, and dis-ease.

This is an interactive workshop that’s designed to take you from the floor to standing up by moving through a series of floor based postures. Although this concept may sound basic and unnecessary, due to our modern sedentary lifestyle and poor design of furniture we have lost the innate bio-mechanical ability to transition smoothly from sitting on the floor to standing upright on two feet.

Watch a toddler or young children navigate on the ground level. They have the flexibility of a Chinese acrobat. Flash forward 20-30 years, and these peeps have the flexibility of a 4,000-year-old mummy. Why is that? Its all about the shapes that we put ourselves into throughout the day on a day in day out basis. These abnormal positions shrink our full range of motion. We’re left with stiff and achy bodies.

To maneuver from the floor to a standing position is a lost art…unless your regularly do yoga, jiu-jitsu, or some other discipline that spends time on the floor. Children mastered this movement sequence. Regrettably, we have created a life of physical convenience and laziness and in doing so we lost this normal skill set.

Solution… return to the natural postures we assumed as little babies as we learned to sit up tall, crawl, squat, and stand. These floor based postures were critical during our early growth and developmental years. Unfortunately we de-volved once we learned how to stand up. We shoved and squeezed our bodies into the confining chair sitting position or the uber cushy couch, and that’s when things went wrong on a biomechanical level.

Our neuro-musculo-skeletal system needs a full spectrum of movement to stay in good moving health. If you want to wake up tomorrow and perform at your highest potential or simply to age gracefully, it is critical…essential ….and mandatory that you spend time on the floor in the postures that you will learn in this seminar.

Until we see you in person…. Get out of your chair or off your sofa and get on the floor! While you’re at….take off your shoes too and go barefoot!

RSVP to reserve your space….as space will be limited.…

CRACK OPEN YOUR SPINE!

portalWhen giving and getting an adjustment I like to imagine a portal opening up….transmitting healing nerve energy/ human electricity/ life force… to whatever lies at then end of that nerve portal/ tunnel….In a human being we’re talking specifically about organs, glands, blood vessels, and muscles.

Think about that the next time you get an adjustment. It’s so much more than getting “cracked.” But then again…expect to get your life “cracked open!”
