IG: To stretch / strengthen the psoas… * * Why not do both? The beauty about mobility work is more often than not, you don’t have to choose… Not entirely! Unbinding postural patterns such as hyperlordosis or flat back often peg the psoas as either weak/inhibited or tight & facilitated, or a diagonal cross between the two. Despite varying posture patterns, most of us find ourselves sitting ALOT which theoretically then weakens the psoas (hipflexor) & glutes. Even when facilitated/inhibited, I find clients still report their hip flexors as feeling tight. So then…๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ…do you stretch it or strengthen it? Why not do both? Regardless of the posture pattern, the muscle needs to be taught how to live & perform healthily in it’s ideal state of being you’re trying to bring it into. If you are strengthening a weak muscle, it likely can benefit from feeling open with that new power. When stretching a muscle, it’s best to give it strength with each increment of stretch you award it. In massage school they say lengthen before you strengthen, and there is truth to that, but what I love about mobility work is that even when you are focusing on lengthening a muscle, you are still depositing strength factors through that rehab work, then progress accordingly. So I stretch the living daylights out of most psoas situations I encounter, but best believe they are strengthening it as well within that same frame. Teach the mind to connect to the body directly and it won’t be too confused/hurt when responding to what the body engages in physically, because the nervous response has been created. #primemovement #selfcare #mobility

IG: Pec release… * * Here is a sneak peak into this weekend’s Prime Movement SelfCare class. We will be focusing on the Upper Body, primarily the culprits that cause alot of neck, head and mid back pain. In this video I am leaning into the oversized tennis ball and pinning the pec fibers whilst moving the muscle through that pinned point. Being flat against the wall, you can do mini internal and external rotations but just reaching up and down the wall/mirror will also do the trick. This is not aggressive releasing. The pecs are already generally tight and full of alot of tender points so we aren’t looking to create unnecessary inflammation. Allow your body to swallow the pressure point of the ball versus slamming it over the tissues looking for relief. If you teach the muscle how to accept the pressure, it will likely disperse the tension rather than create more of it. Move slowly and go along your entire chest plate (under your collar bone, along your sternum and just below your breast area between your ribs & back up to your shoulder.) Go for a 5min release than repetitions. Use the breath in the find the tension, use the breath out to allow the pec to swallow the ball deeper into the tender spot. Repeat on the other side. Rinse this with a nice pec stretch, and you’ve started your due diligence against the hunch back of notredame!๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ #goodjob #selfcare #primemovement

IG: Neck Fascial Releaseโ€ฆ * * Happy High Noon Beautiful Souls! Here is a great way to open up the front of your neck to help ease the stress and strain at the back of your neck. *Remember, where you typically feel pain isn’t where the problem lies* Look down and anchor your skin just below your collar bone. Keeping your fingers pinned down, slowly extend your head back and feel the fascial stretch. Move along the entire circumference of your neck making sure you extend your head in opposition of where you anchor the skin. It’s a great way to take a break from the texting or desk work position. Go through as many rotations as possible or for 5mins straight. Thank me later!๐Ÿ˜Š #selfcare

Here is to starting the week off with a little self care for the body๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ This stretch is great for those with tight low backs or low range of motion in full knee extension for a lengthened hamstring. Laying down and using a strap helps quieten other tissues that may be engaged when you are standing and the strap helps you pull yourself further into the stretch when you typically wouldn’t be able to lean deeper when standing. If you feel a burning sensation behind your knee, or anywhere down the back of your leg, STAAAAP!๐Ÿšซ Let’s not stress your nerve out! Hold in a stretched position for 5-10 slow deep breaths, release and go for 5rounds. Repeat on the other side. Happy healing!๐Ÿ™ƒ #selfcare

Here is a bit of noise ๐Ÿคญ but it’s good for you. Take what is given at a rate that’s manageable & relevant to you. This release is particularly useful for those with hyper extended lower backs (hyperlordosis) but obviously anyone can find relief from this. Place the ball just off the side of your spine. Rock your pelvis back & forth as your back pushes on & off the ball. You can then tilt the pelvis up so the ball is in contact with your back, use your in-breath to contract the low back muscles into the ball (melting around it) and out-breath to release the contraction while relaxing more into it. Try this for about 5 repetitions or longer. Repeat on the other side๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™ƒ #selfcare #primemovement

IG: Healing… * * We spend so much time focusing on the things that are tangible in life. When it comes to health, ALL physical facets of life depend GREATLY on MENTAL HEALTH. ALL OF THEM! It’s become this taboo or wishy washy thing to associate healing with the intangible aspect of life, “energy” and it was something that stood out to me even through school where you could see the separation of therapist styles from one school of thought to another. Through my practice of a few years and encountering a myriad of individuals from all walks of life, a few things have become incredibly true to me about healing. 1) it’s all mental 2) it takes energy to heal (intangible/tangible- it’s all ultimately intangible in my opinion) 3) no ONE way is better than the other Science has created and killed more dreams than any of our ancestors could have even began to contemplate, but even science has no way of explaining alot of the grey field in how & why we do things a certain way. If you believe in the unfolding of certain things in your life, I don’t see why you won’t achieve that. Many successful people have shown this to be true. Why then, do we not see or accept the unfolding of the opposite spectrum??? Why do we not take full responsibility for our own health & wellbeing before we hurt ourselves? Why do we choose to repeat cycles of behavior we know do not align with the optimal function of our bodies? Why do we allow ourselves to be OK with surface treatments & not deeper root causes? Why is it hard to look at ourselves honestly and choose to work for the betterment of ourselves? The answer is always the one we don’t want to walk towards… It makes us cringe, want to run for that guilty pleasure and become defensive. Healing starts with yourself. Healing starts with a self observation. Healing starts with self acceptance. Healing starts with a decision. Healing starts with an action. Healing continues with choosing all of the above steps over and over daily, weekly & monthly, for LIFE! And I’m just here for the hour or two to be part of one of those first steps of many!

It’s become this taboo or wishy washy thing to associate healing with the intangible aspect of life, “energy” and it was something that stood out to me even through school where you could see the separation of therapist styles from one school of thought to another.

1) it’s all mental
2) it takes energy to heal (intangible/tangible- it’s all ultimately intangible in my opinion)
