Happy Feet, Happy Body!

Put Your Best Foot Forward While I originally wrote this back in 2016, it bears repeating as we start the summer fun-shoe wearing months! I find myself in many sessions talking with clients about their feet and the impact of their feet on the rest of their body.  Unless our feet start screaming at us with every [...]

I Want Better Posture!

I Want Better Posture! This topic of better posture is near and dear to me, and something that comes up regularly in conversations with clients.  For some, you might be tired of me continually hitting on it, but it bears repeating! I was driving the other day around town and my attention was drawn to my posture.  You [...]

Got Back Space?

By |May 16th, 2017|Categories: Health and Wellness|

With the 6th hour, or session, of the Rolfing 10-Series, the intention is to establish more space and movement along the back line of the body. As shared before, we compete every day with gravity's pull downward on our structures.  And, as the day progresses we tend to pull, lean, collapse, and slump forward.  Think how much the [...]

Raise Your Hand If You Have Tight Hip Flexors?! When the body comes under stress it goes into a more flexed stated.  Very rarely, actually never, when I am stressed do I find myself lifting my head higher and walking and sitting taller.  Quite on the contrary, I tend to collapse downward and forward.  Similarly, a lot of [...]

Last month I kicked off a series of articles focusing on the elements making up the Rolfing 10-Series; a series of targeted sessions that have specific goals, each building on each other, with the overall goal to bring better integration, balance, alignment, and functionality to the body.  My hope is that this helps you [...]

Take My Breath Away

Just Breathe..... Just recently I was in a yoga class and as part of the warming up and creating our intention and focus for our practice, we spent a significant time focusing on our breath.  I could have been more focused on my yoga practice that day, but my mind began to drift to what a great and [...]

Emotions and our Posture

By |July 18th, 2016|Categories: Health and Wellness|

How Emotions Influence our Bodies I am sure we can all relate at one time or another to the common phrase "I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders".  When life brings challenges and stresses in our professions, finances, relationships, we can physically feel like there is added weight to our shoulders. Similarly, [...]
