IG: How attractive is low back pain?? You see great curves, we see a condition called Hyperlordosis? It’s defined as an exaggerated curvature of the lower spine causing the core to protrude forward, giving the glutes an accentuated appeal. Some can’t help it posturally, however nowadays, most intentionally assume this posture under the impression it’s attractive? (This posture affects both males and females FYI) What happens is the tilting of your hips forward weakens the core & glutes whilst keeping the hamstrings long. It also then shortens the low back muscles, and weakens your hip flexor & quad muscle(Rec Fem) at its upper attachment. This is termed Lower Cross Syndrome. A lot can be done to correct this posture if it’s functional. A few ways to begin alleviating some symptoms that may arise are: -counter tilting by performing bridge exercises -calibrate your posture when you walk, run or sit by ensuring you engage the lower core whilst breathing comfortably -strengthen weaker muscles such as your glutes and deeper core -performing downward dog or child pose stretches to lengthen the back muscles -get a manual treatment to help release restrictions and improve mobility where necessary?? Diligence is ? to encourage long term spinal health. Just like a sweaty girl in a gym is hotter than a sweaty girl in a club?? (apparently), great posture is definitely hotter than bad form??

IG: Why your feet aren’t to be neglected!?? In a culture where we are less and less inclined to walk bare feet on natural textured surfaces, there is a growing number of flat footed individuals. We are all born with flat feet, but as we grow and learn to walk, our muscles develop to form our arches. Some may be born structurally with bone alignment that does not allow the formation of an arch, but most tend to learn NOT to engage and strengthen the lower leg and foot muscles. Various issues start to arise when your body now has to try and function optimally under such stressful conditions. No matter what, the body ALWAYS adapts to what it’s predisposed to, and will seek the path with least resistance. This is when one typically starts to notice symptoms, for its the path of least resistance that often exudes most pain. We can treat the symptoms all day at the clients request, but if you desire the elimination of pain and increase in functionality, Start with and Commit to the process of STRUCTURAL REALIGNMENT.??? Your joints will thank you later! #happyeaster #THL #thehealinglotus #anatomy #physiology #stress #joints #bodywork #massage #RMT #massagetherapy #toronto #mississauga #rehab #release #balance #structure #body

Celeste Ezekiels Lotus Notes 1 Comment

Your feet are your base of support…they are your foundation. And when your foundation is not stable, this can severely affect your posture. This kind of instability can lead to various issues in your back, hips, knees, and ankles. Studies reveal that flat feet can be a major cause of severe headaches and even migraines. As a matter of fact, …

IG: Hip Mobility… Range of motion teasing is the simplest most underrated approach to treatment. Sometimes tissues just need a little nudge nudge, wiggle wiggle at the joint in order to reset.

What You Need to Know about Tensegrity and the Human Structure

Celeste Ezekiels Lotus Notes Leave a Comment

Biotensegrity is a fairly new approach to learning more about how the human body works. This principle is based on the idea that our bodies are mainly tensegrity structures, and that our bones don’t pass load directly to each other. As such, forces flow through our fascial structures and muscles primarily instead of flowing continuously through the bones. Interestingly, this …
