My husband’s shoulder started hurting him a few months ago. At first it would come and go. Then it started aching and burning at night, so much that he couldn’t sleep on his side. I suggested lots of exercises to help strengthen his shoulder (which, to my dismay, he did not practice), and he regularly used his Yoga Tune Up® Balls for self-massage, but he was still in pain.
Have you ever had a shoulder injury? If so (or even if not) it’s important to get clear about how your shoulder works so that you don’t re-injure yourself.
Quite often, learning how to locate your body’s tissues and taking the time to learn a bit about anatomy can make all the difference between keeping your body functional and damaging yourself in Downward Dog. A bum shoulder can make all sorts of everyday movements painful and difficult, so it’s vital to keep yours in working condition.
In this post, I’ll give you the tools to do just that!
Rolfing®. You’ve heard the word before, but you’re not sure exactly what it is, or why someone would do it, right?
As a Certified Rolfer™ of five years, I’ve gotten all kinds of responses from people when I tell them what I do. Often misunderstood or confused with other bodywork therapies, Rolfing is blurred by myths and misconceptions about what it is and isn’t. The unfortunate result of this lack of understanding is that so many people avoid trying Rolfing when they could get so much benefit from it. It could help them in ways that other treatments haven’t. So let me properly introduce you to this amazing work we call Rolfing structural integration.
