Warm Ups Are Important
Even though my gym is nearby I have been a little tardy in arriving for group sessions the last few visits and didn't get an effective warmup. Not a good habit. During my last session, one of my knees complained loudly. It quickly got surprisingly painful to the point I couldn't put my full weight on the one leg during some of the moves.
Simple, Effective Technique
Thankfully we soon got a brief water break and I had about 20 seconds to perform the "Origin / Insertion Technique' that we teach in our Muscle Tuner™ Specialist program. You will want to remember the theory of this technique in case you ever experience a 'muscle pull'. Perform it as early as possible and you will be impressed with the results. #TIP
How to Do It?
The only trick to the technique is having some understanding of where your painful muscle 'originates' from and where it 'inserts'. Once you know that, use your fingertips to make tiny circular wiggles all along the edges of...

Last week I spent time at the end-of-summer fair in Vancouver, BC and enjoyed the President's Choice SuperDog show (#pcsuperdogs) at the arena. However, when descending the steep concrete steps surrounded by crowds of people, I turned my foot oddly while stepping down. Ouch. It felt like a light sprain at the bottom of my foot and it felt like the arch collapsed a bit. Determined to be tough and not spoil the day I managed well enough until I finished lunch. When I stood up, the discomfort was even worse. I started wondering how I was going to make the very long trek back to the car.
As a Muscle Tuner™ Specialist, I happen to know that the Posterior Tibialis muscles are involved in helping support the arch of the foot. As any devoted practitioner of Muscle Tuning™, I plopped myself down on a nearby bench, pulled off my shoe and thoroughly activated the origin and insertion of this muscle on my sore...

While on holidays and on a road trip from the Lower Mainland to the 'End of the Road' in Keno City, Yukon in August, Denise found several people from Whitehorse, Mayo, and Keno City interested in her new business and willing to experience a demonstration.
Her willing participants were school chums, hotel operators, 20+-year-olds going to post-secondary schools for sports sciences, a gym manager, a retired miner, a retired RCMP officer, a schoolteacher, a government negotiator, and even a visiting physiotherapist from Ontario! All of these people found their experience to be 'impressive' and one remarked 'why haven't I heard about this yet???!!!!'. That young man was visiting home during summer break from university in Victoria and both he and the physiotherapist were very pleased to learn that the majority of our Program can be taken online at their own pace.

Who knew that a little pressure on a Neuro-lymphatic Reflex point would make such a difference?
Recently my business partner, Denise, and I were in a photo shoot with Spenser Chapple (photographer) and Keegan McMahon (the model). The goal of the day was to walk away with pictures and videos of 50+ muscle tests. The starting position for Subscapularis was a challenge for Keegan, so we asked him if we could rub the lymphatic spots on the front & back of his body (T2-T3). He said yes and we did. Then we carried on with the other muscles.
Once finished the “still shots” we moved onto shooting the videos. Once again Keegan put his limbs into the start position of the muscle tests. When we got to the previously challenging subscapularis muscle test, Keegan’s arm went into position with ease! Keegan and Spenser were impressed and we were ALL amazed even though Denise and I regularly see these types of results. We...
