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?
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...
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...

Heather was just 20 when she had spinal fusion surgery due to a birth defect and which worsened by her athletic...
Yesterday I met with a client with a 'different' kind of concern. John felt that his scalp was too tight and it was causing him to lose his hair. He wondered if there was something we could do to help him release the tension at the top of his head because he knew we advertise that we tune up muscles.
All I could say was: "Let's see what we can do" and proceeded to check various muscles. Without boring you with great detail but still giving you a glimpse of the marvel of body engineering, we used a technique for locating priority imbalances and found that we had to start with resetting walking reflexes in his feet, then we had to assess a hip muscle which needed activation of some reflexes at the top of his neck in order for the hip and feet receptors to have proper communication with his nervous system. Then we could assess communication patterns between four specific sets of connective tissues and muscles in the area...
A client met me at the gym last week for some Muscle Tuning™. She has met me at my office several times in the past, and those sessions have been very helpful. She said she was ready to challenge her body and wanted someone standing by to support her as she begins working out with equipment at the gym. She was somewhat fearful of hurting herself further by performing exercises if some of her muscles weren't firing properly yet.
We didn't do the Primary or Secondary Muscle Tune Up Protocol which we perform for most people. I offered a highly customized session to help her recover from an injury. She is currently fully supported with great physiotherapy, however, there have been some muscles that have been extremely stubborn to return to proper function. She asked if switching on muscles throughout a gym workout could be helpful. Of course I let her know that's one of the best ways of demonstrating the instantly...

Okay, so that's not a picture of me attached to this post. Did it get your attention though?
I've been struggling with a particular stretch similar to the one above but with the opposite arm reaching up from below to touch fingertips between the shoulder blades.
I've been posting social media images that our methods not only improve strength, they improve flexibility also. I wondered, if I could do that for other people like Andrea (first video on this link), couldn't I focus on the flexibility component for myself too? I thought about which muscles were involved in the movement. I moved my left arm then my right arm around in various ways (fitting right in with everyone else in the stretching area at the back of the gym, of course).
I tested four muscles I suspected were involved. The Middle Trapezius was okay, but not the Lower Traps. They unlocked one one side so I activated reflexes on the front and back of the body for about 20...

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...
