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...

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....

TWO THINGS NEVER TO DO IN THE SHOWER... or elsewhere!
Watch this video to find out if you do either of these innocent actions in your daily life... because if you do, you might be triggering discomfort in your body without even knowing!

Not feeling well after that Halloween Candy?

energy boost self-care tips Nov 01, 2019

It can be challenging not to be tempted by all the Halloween candy available everywhere this week. Did you resist so far? Did did you keep it to a small taste or two? If yes, congratulations!  If no, did you notice how hard it is to stop, especially when there are so many different ones to sample??

Eating sugary treats like candy, most breakfast cereals and even many gluten-free products is very hard on your pancreas because it is the organ responsible for producing the chemicals that break down all that sweetness. 

Here's a helpful tip to support your pancreas. 
There's a neurological reflex point that you can activate with small circular rubbing motions that helps stimulate the pancreas when it's gotten a bit too sluggish after working so hard: 

Rub this point gently yet firmly for about 30 seconds two or three times on days when you've indulged in something sweet. It really helps your body function more easily.

3 Self-Care Techniques = Massive Results

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...
