Observing Muscle Imbalances From Afar

muscle tuning pain runners Jun 05, 2020

I was walking in the woods this morning while three joggers passed me.

It was interesting to observe them because each jogger's running mechanics was noticeably different from the others. 

The middle jogger was perky, upright, toes forward, shoulders back, making running look effortless.

The one on the right had her feet turned noticeably outward as she ran. 

The one on the left had completely different mechanics with her arms a-swinging awkwardly along with corresponding effort from her legs where the feet seemed to loop outward before each heel strike. 

What did this tell me?

The jogger on the right probably has flat feet and will likely develop foot pain from running. I say this because outward foot turn often indicates the anterior and posterior tibialis and peroneus muscles are not firing properly. These muscles support foot arch and ankles. There's probably also involvement from the lateral hamstrings, adductors...

Breathe Deeply for the Next Three Minutes

energy boost self-care tips May 06, 2020

Most people take breathing for granted. As Muscle Tuner® Specialists, we pay attention to breathing habits.

• Deep breathing is one of the best and certainly cheapest ways to lower stress. When you breathe deeply, it sends a message to your brain to calm down and relax. The brain then forwards this message to your body.

• Shallow breathing causes the body to produce adrenaline. There are enough other stressors in our day not to add one more, so learn to breathe correctly.

• Why punish our precious adrenal glands? When there's a good supply of oxygen, our adrenals in particular understand they are not required to prepare the body for 'fight or flight'.

• Deep (diaphragmatic) breathing properly oxygenates the body which is essential for numerous functions including metabolism and energy production
((= fat burning!)

• Dr. Sheldon Deal, D.C., says: "We live on the bottom of a sea of energy. When we breathe, it is a form of breathing in some of this...

Stay Focussed to Stay Calm

Were you aware that activities that force you to focus on your breath or your body movements encourage your nervous system to relax and your body energies to 'ground'? Would that feel good to you about now?
 
Continue reading because the martial arts example demonstrates how your mind and body can become calm.
 
In martial arts it is important to constantly focus on your posture, how much weight each foot and joint is bearing, each phase of your breath, where your arms and hands are, at what angles your wrists and fingers are held, what direction your toes point and what you need to do to get to the next position...
 
Being this focussed on a single activity means there is no time to worry about what to make for dinner or how you're going to get your child to finish their homework.
 
Many types of physical activities are actually like doing "moving meditation".
 
Lots of activities qualify. When you're in the gym lifting...

Are You Affected by Shoulder Pain? Self Care Tips!!!

 

Are you affected by shoulder pain?

Many people develop shoulder pain at some point during their lifetime. While some discomfort can be a result of a sport injury or over-use, there are a significant number of people who simply seem to 'wake up one day' with severe limitation of their range of motion in one shoulder. 

This article is to provide the general public with tips that may help. We will be working with a few techniques for one of four rotator cuff muscles. The Supraspinatus muscle is considered the 'master key' that unlocks a lot of discomfort. If you are a wellness professional, you might like to know you can accomplish astonishing results by properly facilitating the coordination between the four rotator cuff muscles with techniques we teach in our Muscle Tuner® Specialist Program. We call the process: Muscle Tuning™.

How can you drain stress out of the shoulder area? 

  1. First have a good sip of water or two....

TWO THINGS NEVER TO DO IN THE SHOWER... or elsewhere!
Watch this video to find out if you do either of these innocent actions in your daily life... because if you do, you might be triggering discomfort in your body without even knowing!
I'll be demonstrating activating spinal reflexes for the Latissimus Dorsi (the largest back muscle) and a hand receptor stress point that affects grip strength and neck kinks.

Very practical knowledge.

Strengthen Your Legs

If you do Lower Body workouts and notice sore legs the next day, you should rub these important reflexes before leaving the gym. I especially love using a narrow soapy loofah on these in the shower as soon as I get home. This activity helps push lactic acid out of your muscles and enhances the lymphatic flow for your thighs.
If you wish you could progress with your training faster and start doing more squats or pushing heavier weights in the hack rack, or simply get out of that chair more easily, rub these beforehand (yes, the effect will last long enough if you do this in the privacy of the rest room before going out on the floor!) #MuscleMondays #SwitchOnMusclesFirst

Not feeling well after that Halloween Candy?

energy boost self-care tips Nov 01, 2019

It can be challenging not to be tempted by all the Halloween candy available everywhere this week. Did you resist so far? Did did you keep it to a small taste or two? If yes, congratulations!  If no, did you notice how hard it is to stop, especially when there are so many different ones to sample??

Eating sugary treats like candy, most breakfast cereals and even many gluten-free products is very hard on your pancreas because it is the organ responsible for producing the chemicals that break down all that sweetness. 

Here's a helpful tip to support your pancreas. 
There's a neurological reflex point that you can activate with small circular rubbing motions that helps stimulate the pancreas when it's gotten a bit too sluggish after working so hard: 

Rub this point gently yet firmly for about 30 seconds two or three times on days when you've indulged in something sweet. It really helps your body function more easily.

12 Years of Pain GONE After Two Sessions!

no pain success stories Aug 31, 2019

Approximately 12 years ago I suffered a right shoulder injury. I had done everything from acupuncture to massage as well as everything in between. My doctor stated it was not bad enough for surgery. However, I lived with pain every day of the year. Some days it was quite excruciating while others not so bad, but always, the pain was there. 

I met Denise of Muscle Tuners International and was incredibly skeptical about what she did and how she did it. She demonstrated her skill during a Networking event on another set of muscles on me and it was one of those 'mind blown' experiences. 

I made the commitment to give it a try, after all, what did I have to lose after 12 plus years of pain? With high skepticism going in for the first session, I found at the end of the session the shoulder felt better than it had in the last 12 plus years, but there was still some pain. She had also tuned some other muscles. As a result, I had one of the best workouts of my life at the gym. Felt...
