One of the things students often hear me say is that “healing can happen anywhere”.
The image above is me working on someone in a gym, and if you click the play button, you will see another woman's video describing the dramatic change she enjoyed as a result of a conversation we had while I was out for a walk.
I was chatting with her on the phone after I had seen a Facebook post about herr new kayak and I congratulated her on her purchase. That's when she mentioned that she had a fear of water. Wow. What!? I stopped in my tracks at the park and asked if I could help with that.
She agreed so I led her through the process which took about 4 minutes. It was simple to coach Alison in our proprietary Dynamic Emotional Alignment Reset (DEAR)™ Technique over the phone. I coached her on releasing trapped emotional stress and she said she already felt much less scared about going out in her kayak. It was a nice surprise when she sent me...
Have you ever gotten stressed and fallen into an unproductive or ugly emotional state? Stress causes your ‘dinosaur-brain’ to trigger behaviours that are not very resourceful. Once you’ve gotten there, it can be difficult to have a productive day or regain your sense of calmness and control.
There is something you can do that activates your emotional reset buttons. The following approach is a general overall method to use when you realize you are experiencing emotional stress and it consistently works like magic. Let me show you how simple it is to release stress and light up your frontal cortex so that you can feel better, solve challenges more easily and make better decisions.
This activity utilizes certain acupressure points which literally act as emotional pressure release valves in order to reduce the amount of time stress hormones circulate through your body causing uncomfortable feelings.
Have you ever noticed when someone is stressed they...
Would it surprise you to learn that every single one of your muscles communicate to your organs and glands? This occurs in part via subtle energetic channels called Meridians and little-known reflexes that connect the nervous system with the lymphatic or vascular structures that flow through the organs. Many therapists are unaware that impaired function of these affects organ and muscle function.
Beginning in the 1960s chiropractor Dr. George Goodheart Jr. sometimes obtained unexpected results from contacting the body in specific ways and ‘accidentally’...
Because the body is electrical in nature, the nervous system will often pop a ‘circuit-breaker’ when there has been over-use, injury or chronic stress causing a muscle or series of muscles to stop working optimally.
If you are a therapist who isn’t aware of this circuitry, you may fail to permanently resolve physical issues because few or no messages are getting to the tissues that are in trouble because neurological messages aren’t being delivered and affected areas cannot respond appropriately.
For individuals who practice manual muscle testing these areas are easy to identify. The process basically involves positioning a limb in a certain manner to isolate a contracted muscle and then attempting to push it along its range of motion while asking the client to keep their limb at the start position. When neurological signalling has been disrupted, the limb will not be easy to hold at the start position and the activity of pushing the limb will...
Sometimes an injury is slow to heal and it takes longer for your client to recover than you would like. Maybe you have noticed a body part doesn’t function as well as it did before a strain or an accident has occurred.
Time and a conventional approach to therapy doesn’t always work. If this is the case, you need a different strategy so that clients achieve the results they want sooner.
It may interest you to know that in about 60-90 minutes over 50 muscles from head to foot can be checked to see if they are communicating with the brain optimally, along with resetting any that need to be tuned up. It’s wonderful to find and fix troubled muscles before your clients bend down to pick up a proverbial paperclip and ‘suddenly’ can’t get up again.
Because the body is electrical in nature, when there has been over-use, a strain, or other injury, the nervous system will often pop a ‘circuit-breaker’. Numerous muscles may seem...
It's January and a lot of individuals are on an exercise kick, aren't they? Where will they be in February? You and I know that many of them will be frustrated, in pain and giving up.
The average person is doing the exercise thing backwards because they are Exercising to Tune Up their muscles in order to get stronger and develop better muscle tone. What if they Tuned Up Their Muscles BEFORE Exercising?
Regardless of age, some of your muscles have 'checked out' because of over-use or injury and are not pulling their share of the weight. This causes other muscles to do the work of their neighbours. If several leg muscles aren't working properly for example, one may be at risk of a knee injury, an ankle sprain, or an unexpected fall. In addition, the muscles that are doing all the extra work get annoyed and will often communicate their displeasure with pain signals. Common pain relief methods won't last very long if this is the case. This...
Someone recently asked me how I seem to show up happy, stay organized, and get things done. I realized there are 7 top things that contribute to my being able to achieve that pretty regularly:
Appreciation and gratitude are powerful sources of energy. Having a purpose helps in completing things you start.
Many successful and happy people encourage us to take time for meditation. There are many forms of meditation. Explore, experiment and find a method that helps still your mind and access your innate talents.
In addition to meditation, I regularly take time to notice my ‘state’. I have learned a few ways to reduce negative states and nourish a positive state. I ensure I begin each day with an activity specifically intended to boost me up, put a spring in my step and add a sincerely happy lilt to my...
I was chatting with a contact today who mentioned something I did not yet know about the brain. She mentioned that multi-tasking has been proven to damage our mental health. She referred to the ways neural pathways are activated while multi-tasking. When you multi-task, the synapses that fire at these times are at risk of being affected by the similar changes observed in dementia patients. The reason for this is because our nervous system conducts regular synaptic pruning which is thought to be the brain's way of removing connections in the brain that are no longer needed. Whoops, you actually might have needed to keep some of these connections but they weren't fully developed and robust enough to be kept during the brains maintenance process!
Wow. I wondered if this is why it seems more women than men are affected by dementia. (Sorry guys, it has been noticed by some scientifically minded folks that most males are not as competent at multi-tasking compared to most...
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

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?
