Nutritious Movement is a portal to an idea—that you are how you move and that you can move differently for a different, better outcome, once you have more information regarding how movement works.
I teach Restorative Exercise Classes based on Katy Bowman's work.
Here's your new word of the day.
This means that cells respond to mechanical input and can REGENERATE and make new tissue under a mechanical load, so you can improve the tissue in your torn meniscus, your herniated disc, your painful plantar fascia- through simple movement!
Active Release Technique
This powerful treatment method addresses soft tissue restrictions throughout the body. It quickly and effectively improves many conditions.
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
How do overuse conditions occur?
Over-used muscles (and other soft tissues) change in three important ways:
- acute conditions (pulls, tears, collisions, etc),
- accumulation of small tears (micro-trauma)
- not getting enough oxygen (hypoxia).
Each of these factors can cause your body to produce tough, dense scar tissue in the affected area. This scar tissue binds up and ties down tissues that need to move freely. As scar tissue builds up, muscles become shorter and weaker, tension on tendons causes tendonitis, and nerves can become trapped. This can cause reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain. If a nerve is trapped you may also feel tingling, numbness, and weakness.
The Arvigo Method of Mayan Abdominal Massage
This technique is performed externally by gently guiding and supporting organs back into their optimal position, allowing for improved functioning
Arvigo Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs of both men and women, as well as many common digestive disorders.
The techniques effectively alleviate tissue congestion and organ constriction to improve the vital flows of energy, blood, lymph and nerves in the abdomen. It addresses and can release emotional tension from the abdomen.
