Your Bodysuit feel stuck?

Myofascial restrictions in the body can give you a sense that your skin is pulling every thing out. You have to delve into the connective tissue of the body to understand why this is so.

If you don’t have a thorough upstanding of Anatomy and Physiology, the easiest way to think about it is that your skin is attaching to everything inside the body (muscles, bones, nerves, vessels, etc…)

The power of connective tissue can contribute to poor posture, increase reoccurance of injury and pull your whole structure out of place. I like to joke that I’m stuck in my bodysuit!

Myofascial stretching is the fastest way to over come most myofascial restrictions. We like to use cupping as a way to really open up and stretch that connective tissue of yours. If you have nagging pain that just won’t go away, come test it out for yourself.

Stop and Stretch.

Stretching is the most under used activity for the recreational athlete.

Let’s face it, stretching is boring. I don’t have the time is the most common phrase we hear. I get it.

Let me tell you what it does for you though. Keeps the joints loose, ie: reducing the effect of arthritis which will eventually side line you. Every athlete will develope arthritis the longer you stick with something. Those that remain flexible will be less burdened by this. East to follow program.

Stretching will also reduce your risk for muscle pulls or strains. It’s a no Brainer, spending 20 minutes a day stretching, keeps you fit enough that an injury is less likely to occur and thus you don’t have to take weeks to months off from working out.

Our stretching service is for those people that don’t have the motivation to do it themselves. It’s easy to do it on your own but so is working out. Some people need a trainer to be accountable, so we are here for you if you need help. You can simple schedule a stretch session online at www.hadlcenter.com

Tip of the week!

SI Joint Dysfunction is something many of us deal with on a weekly basis.

What is it? At it’s basic form, it is just your hips inability to stay in place. Most people will feel a pain or stiffness on one side of the lower back. You may have trouble going from a sitting to standing position. Think of the dimples on your back. Those are your SI Joints. The simple fix……are your ready for it?

STOP crossing your legs when you sit. This small activity of crossing your legs, will keep pulling your hips out of alignment. It is really that simple. Over time your body will adapt.

*If you do this subconsciously and can’t stop crossing your legs, odds are your hips are already out of alignment and need to be realigned. For more info come see us. www.hadlcenter.com

Question of the Day: What is Bodywork?

Someone, that I do not know on Facebook, asked the question: what is bodywork? Hmm.. I have the general assumption that everyone I work with knows everything in my head. I guess I never thought to explain, “What is Bodywork?”

Many of my client’s have different names for what I do for them. Some are just flat out funny, “The Body Whisperer.” You know who you are. It is, at it’s core, Massage and Bodywork as specified through The National Board for Therapeutic Massage and BODYWORK is (see below).

Bodywork: Any of a number of therapeutic or simply relaxing practices that involve the manipulation, massage, or regimented movement of body parts. Examples include massage, craniosacral therapy, and Pilates. Bodywork may be used as an adjunct to medical treatment, or it may be prescribed as a form of physical therapy for certain conditions.

Basically, It’s massage + other stuff!

The Fundamental difference between a Massage Envy and or Spa Therapist and someone who does bodywork is that a Bodywork Professional has both a long term and short term objective for your body’s overall health.

You may come to us with an injury or headache or nagging back pain. We will assess you and in the short term try to make the initial problem better. You may need a few sessions for this or you may only need one. From there, we try to look deeper at other potential causes of your minor issues and correct those. Then, we try to get you on a maintenance program of stretching, exercise, and periodic massages to help identify potentially new problems that may arise. This type of massage is much more then the occasional, “I need a massage today.”

Hope this answers your question, if you had this question! If not, thank you for taking the time to read my little rant. See you soon!
