Lying in Bed Exploring Eyes

March 27, 2017

Lying Exploring Eyes

 

Hi, today I'm visiting a client who is 83 and she is too frightened to get out of bed, stand and walk.

 

When I go to see her I will be starting with some gentle work to not only find out where she is happy to move, but also to boost her confidence.

She has a history of starting to go off her feet before a fall some 4 months ago and vision is very important.

This kind of process is something you can explore with and imagine what it would be like to be confined to a bed all day. Notice what you can see if you move your head and if you dont. 

 

Have fun and do come join me and everybody else at my Feldenkrais Facebook page

Breathing & Shifting Attention

March 16, 2016

Breathing, just how much attention do we give it when life is in balance? Its just an action we take for granted, our heart beats, we breathe.

Many people I coach find life stressful. The say that people and events cause upset. They might be worry warriers, very good at taking on the burden of responsibility. Perhaps, as someone once told me, they "think a lot", dwell on this and that, run back over events and wonder if they could have been better made a choice.

Ill health can cause worry, fear about the future, prognosis, death, pain, loss.Sometimes guilt is there as well, the feeling that you are somehow to blame for the health problem you have.

People can feel strange feelings that seem to manifest from within their body. Sensations of pain, dizziness, tinnitus, eyesite change, hearing change. This attention call can cause upset, can start worry and fear and a sense of isolation.

Some people make presentations which they dislike, standing in front of large groups. Some loath flying but have to travel for work, some hate lifts but work or live at a high rise height.

Discovering a little about body habits associated with breathing can help control. Having a small sense of control can bring hope. Having hope can lift mood and bring a smile.

This short process can be done in the imagination, real time in a room or out walking. 
It is a Body Sensing & Movement Awareness Process (BSMA) which is my own work.

Its an element in RAPP: the Recovery & Performance Programe

Laughter for No Reason

January 21, 2016

Most every day laughter is part of my healthy practice. Most mornings when trotingt round my kitchen I have a great laugh. Laughter Yoga is a well established practice and I'm a certified Laughter Yoga Leader & Laughter Facilitator.

Join me in the short process, open your lungs and make some noise while you chortle and giggle and smile.
At some points on the recording the sound is quite loud, so set the volume low. Fortunately my neighbours are tolerant and cope with my djembe playing as well.
Look after yourself and remember, laughter is very very infectious so watch out that while you listen to this you dont get the whole train carriage giggling with you.

Lying on Your Front Contact & Breathing

January 19, 2016

Today I worked with a client who has been to see me for several years. He is a very keen runner and injured his calf on a 10K. After putting on my HCPC Registered PT hat and completing a full assessment of his injury, advising on management etc. we chatted about scanning & habits. 

This pod is in part something we spent a few moments exploring during his lesson today.
Because I have few scanning resources up on here I thought best to add another tool to the box
Remember these pods are not meant to be any form of medical treatment etc. 
Take care lying on your front and make sure you are comfy, change your position as often as you like and go gently

Chronic Pain can be a crippling disease and its management is both complex and expensive . Often people in pain are only offered drug treatment and this rarely helps to make lasting change to symptoms. This series of free downloads intruduces listeners to self management processes which can help to put them in control of their symptoms. These processes involve them in making to habits of thinking, perceiving and movement. This body mind approach is supported by evidence  available from  research into the neuroscience behind chronic pain.

Belly Breathing

June 8, 2010

Breathing is a natural thing.

But how many folk give any thought to the way that they breathe ?

Discovering how you breathe provides deep insight into the cause of your muscle aches and pain.

How you respond to everyday life with physical tensioning is an important message from your body.

Overlook the messages, maybe because they are so habitual that you cant feel them and your body will provide you with more and more messages.

What we call stress is imbalance in our homeostasis, the balance between our physiology and the environment.

This 15 minute lesson introduces belly breathing and draws attention to the way muscle tension changes as you breathe with the base of your lungs and top of your lungs.
