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

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.
