For Manual Therapists conceptualizing bone is something of a challenge. Classical anatomy presents bone as a static, mineralized structure that treats loads as compressional, somewhat like a stack of bricks. The dynamic and self healing properties of bone are not obvious, and especially so its pliable qualities. However, bone is by volume 33 to 43% minerals, [...]
What is the correct alignment for the structure of the human body in the gravity field?
It is helpful to use the landmarks indicated in the graphic below to find this alignment, which is the most efficient for our structure. When our bodies are aligned in this way, our muscles don’t have to “hold up” our [...]
Aches and pains in our muscles, from a Manual Therapy perspective, are viewed as our bodies protective response to unbalanced tone. Essentially our bodies are saying that for the painful activity our muscle tone is not organized in a way that will support that activity, so don’t do it. Unbalanced tone can originate from structural misalignment, or [...]
While the Chinese model of energy balancing pays attention to the flow of energy through the meridians, the broader body of energy medicine pays equal or greater attention to the vibrational qualities of energy, its resonance or dissonance in relation to other energy segments. When viewed two dimensionally this quality of synchronization of resonance is not apparent, however in a three dimensional model, vibrational relationships become much more easily distinguished.
When we get out of the shower or bath, usually the next thing to do is dry ourselves. Seeing as we are going to dry ourselves anyway, it is an excellent opportunity to do a little Lymphatic Massage. The idea is to dry yourself in the direction of the area above and to the right of the heart. So you dry up the arms and legs both front and back, and up the torso
