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
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...
I’ve been telling people all week that everybody can be stronger and have less tension, PRONTO by using our techniques. This Thursday evening I was given another opportunity to prove this belief.
I arrived 10 minutes early for a group coaching session and one of the attendees asked for my help because he couldn’t move his head. Seemed pretty serious because it barely rotated an inch off of center. You could see he was sitting with a lot of tension in his back and shoulders and his face didn’t look too happy either. It seemed pretty uncomfortable so I agreed to see what could be done before the class began.
I chose three of our Energy Boost™ Self-Care Techniques because these three are our among our greatest home-run techniques. First I thoroughly performed the ‘Circuit Breaker Reset’ for about two minutes. This is a quick-fix for increasing flexibility in the spine. Then I did the ‘Auditory Tune Up’ for...

What a GREAT way to start the New Year. Especially as we're hip deep in producing our next Program. Check out this testimonial:
"You may remember when we were at the last Muscle Tuners International seminar, you asked me to do a little experiment regarding the foot pain problem I shared with you. You mentioned it was a preview to the technique we're going to learn in the Fine Tuning Program. I did it and am happy to report it made quite a difference in the pain level. In fact, I no longer need to take anything for the pain!
I’ve had this foot pain for 14 months now, and it was very, very slowly getting better. After using the technique you suggested, I had a real jump in the speed of recovery. I estimate it would’ve taken me at least a couple of months to get the same amount of improvement I got from applying this technique just twice over a few days!
Thanks so much for suggesting I try this - I’m super happy with the results!"

It was another proud day for Heather and I when one of our graduates joined a regularly scheduled Zoom conference support call to report how things went for her at a recent demonstration event she hosted.
She told us she arranged to use some meeting space at a local gym and distributed posters around town, posted on social media and sent out personal invitations.
She shared with us the fear she had had about whether she could offer demonstrable changes in the short time allotted for each attendee.
How Did the Demo Go?
She was delighted to have very positive results with every volunteer! For example, two people with considerable pain felt a reduction in discomfort ranging from ‘almost all’ to ‘completely gone’. Another person had an old injury that required her to re-learn how to walk. The crowd and the young woman noticed that she was already walking better after a few Gait Mechanism Reflexes were reset. Another volunteer later had a...
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...
I went to camp (cabin, cottage) near Sault Ste. Marie and had a wonderful time playing in the water among other things. I had not skied for 4 summers and was excited to go! I LOVE water skiing!
It was overcast and the 3-mile lake was calm. I skied almost to the end of it on the first day! We passed 2 fishing boats and I was in heaven with the wind in my hair and the water under my skis.
What happened on Day 2?
The next day I skied again the boat pulled me up easily today. The real story is not that I skied, nor that I did so two days in a row, but it is about what happened on day three! Or should I say what did NOT happen on Day 3. My body was NOT sore! I mean I could tell that I exerted myself more than usual, but I had no pain while walking, squatting, touching my toes; moving my arms holding onto things with my hands; my stomach was not even sore! My body did not seize up on me, it was as if I had not skied at all and I was amazed!
How Did I...
