Down the Ladder

We mostly pay attention to odd sensations in our bodies once they’re annoying enough to be worth noting.
 
And we tend to procrastinate actually doing something about them until they’ve become bad enough to stop us from doing something altogether.
 
We, as a society, are very good at pushing through.
 
But pushing through just leads us further up the ladder towards injury and repetitive strain!
 
Being able to recognize things progressing and feeling confident about your options to intervene and give your body what it needs is crucial to good management and injury prevention.
 
Imagine getting to the point where for the most part your symptoms are completely resolved! You’re comfortable most days and you’re not feeling limited in any of your daily activities.
 
Now imagine being able to pick up on very subtle shifts in your system telling you that you’ve stepped onto that first rung of the ladder…
 
And being able to step right back off…
 
This level of self-awareness and intuitive body listening is something you can learn and hone.
 
It’s a lot of ‘brain-training’ – getting your brain to pick up on things and also being able to clean up movement patterns.
And this is where working with the groundwork of movement therapy is extremely effective!

If this intrigues you and you’d like to be able to recognize your body’s subtle signals AND feel confident in what you could do to turn things around, I’d love to work with you!
