Relief Vs Belief

We both know that you can get relief.
A temporary reprieve from the worst of your symptoms – if not all of them.
But do you truly believe that you can maintain that long term?
More importantly, under your own power? Not dependant on someone else ‘fixing’ you?
Have you resigned yourself to this just being the way your life is now?
Understanding more about how your body moves and how joints and muscles work in isolation and coordination is a game changer.
Being able to give yourself relief at home through simple movements, breathing and stillness is empowering.
Having your symptoms slowly get less intense, less frequent, or less long lasting because you’re not ‘poking the bear’ anymore is huge.
And that all comes from creating space and suppleness in your body.
It comes from awareness, mindfulness and trust in yourself.
It comes from the unconscious parts of your mind knowing it’s safe to move.
It comes from having a variety of ways to move so that repetitive strain injuries are less likely.
And all of that comes from intentionally working with movement and restorative positions.
And THAT is why I blend movement and massage therapy.
