Why ‘Muscle Tuning’ Can Assist Your Quality of Life

muscle tuning Oct 26, 2020

 We want the best quality of life don’t we? Are some of your objectives to maintain your independence, strength and mobility for as long as possible? 

As we age, many of us notice we are losing flexibility, followed by a progressive reduction of strength and stability. Perhaps we don’t have the same length of stride when we walk or ability to reach for things like we used to. When did it become difficult to pull on a pair of socks or put the groceries away?

Many of us care about avoiding or at least delaying these challenges so we pay attention to healthy diet and regular exercise. We invest time and money in activities such as stretching, weight bearing exercises, regular walking and maybe some yoga, tai-chi or dancing to keep our muscles and joints as healthy as possible. Are you one of the many though, who are frustrated when these healthy activities don’t yield results? Go ahead and blame it on age if you’d like. However, are you ready to...

Sharing Knowledge is Like Passing on DNA

success stories Sep 01, 2020
 

As an every-day regular human being who might also be an educator, a parent, or a friend... do you feel compelled to share knowledge?

I love this quote because it is very personal to me.

I had lived with pain and discomfort and low energy before discovering something that made a huge difference towards improving those conditions. It also positively supported me and my family during what developed into a very high-risk pregnancy where medical professionals constantly predicted dire outcomes. Beyond that, it continued to improve my quality of life with every visit to my new favourite health professional.

My eyes lit up and my inside voice shouted to me during my first experience with his method: "THIS is what I want to do when I grow up!!!"

LOL, I was 28 at the time!

Because of these positive experiences, I attended trainings from leaders and mentors in this field, some of whom have passed into the next dimension. Others are nearing that time of their lives. Thank...

Immune Boosting Activity

 

IT’S A HOT TOPIC RIGHT NOW… WHAT CAN WE DO TO SUPPORT OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM?  Especially now that many of our kids are going back to school. 

Let’s do something that helps our focus and concentration. These particular movements also reduce stress, move your blood and increase your breathing rate. These effects help support your immune system!

Performing this activity (without the cute music) also helps you achieve other goals. It is one of the many activities we share in our Win The Pain Game Program.

You can perform this activity anytime, while focussing on any short, positively-worded goal statement for about three minutes. It’s great to do without music or with some instrumental music playing quietly in the background so that you can focus on your goal.

In this video, Denise plays some music that delivers a message that encourages our immune systems to function well. She has performed bioenergetic wellness...

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....
