Why do aching feet slow your run, or slow your progress?
Why are you more aggravated, irritable and distracted when your feet are very sore, red, swollen, or painful?
Feet are nature’s first tool we had to move safely in the world.
The nerve ending in your feet that cross the ball of your feet give us balance and understanding of our present environment.
When feet are covered in shoes that are too tight or fit too loosely with no support to keep their sensitivity active. The nerve endings in ball of the foot become less sensitive to the environment because of the stress they are under. When these feet or foot sensors do not effectively work, our ability to balance, respond calmly, to think clearly is decreased. Detachment and trying to ignore pain increases the feeling of separation.
Are you tired of being in pain and ready to calm your foot sensors so you can have more energy and feel free again? Here are 3 ways choose what fits you best. Click here to schedule.
you can do for your physical and emotional health.
Researchers from the University of Sydney Business School Anya Johnson and Helena Nguyen found “workers who suppress their emotions are taking an extra six to eight days off work a year. They are also more likely to suffer post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental illnesses.” 1
When we force that smiley face, what we are doing is telling our heart that guides our emotional well being to be quiet-your input does not count. Over time this becomes a habit which can create physical and emotional dis-ease.
Where does the body store these swallowed feelings and behaviors usually in those tissues, fascia and organs your family of origin stored it.
When the body and mind become exhausted this is usually a sign from our heart to take better care of yourself. If left unattended and nurtured, the emotions get more extreme, pain and exhaustion increase, the mind and body get sluggish.
Take time for a breathing break or come visit “Pain Away Island ” for some suggestions on how to unwind the pain and pent up emotions. You do not have to suffer from the “Smiley Face” addiction any more.
Probably the least understood part of the body, fascia are found in fluid bands or sheets of connective tissue fibers, that forms beneath the skin to attach, stabilize, enclose, communicate pain signals and separate muscles and other internal organs.
Made of flexible collagen structures, fascia are capable of resisting great unidirectional tension forces until the wavy pattern of fibers that straighten with a pulling force or becoming more gel like when relaxed. (Fascia are the pink colored fibers seen in the image above.)
Emerging science and client experience suggests that fascia play a very dynamic role in the cycle of injury – pain relief and recovery cycle.
Networked with memory, autonomic nervous system, brain hormones, vascular cells and musculo-skeletal systems, different layers of fascia seem to need different techniques to activate pain relief and release physical and emotional stress from different layers of fascia. – Mary Wolken PhD 2015
Little do you realize that each of us is constructed with a suit of interwoven fibers that makes us potential Super Heroes. If you look closely at Spiderman’s red body covering you will see the first layer of networking black lines. These protect and give Spiderman his super powers.
What is I told you that we all have this power grid structure? Yes, it is true .
In living animals, humans included, we call this networking structure that is under our skin and surrounds every organ fascia. It is the most under studied part of us. From my experience it houses the most potential solutions for memory of our traumatic experiences and must function well if we want health and happiness.
Joint health, injury-free sports, organ health and fluid movement
The proper functioning of the fascia is necessary for joints of the spine, hips, knees, ankles and ribs to absorb impact and distribute the strain throughout the body. Proper exercise should follow the lines of fascial pull to distribute the impact. When you’re tight and restricted, the fascia gets sluggish and doesn’t glide smoothly over the muscles and bones. In order for your body to work like a well-oiled machine, you must focus on the fascia. Fitness ability is dependent on healthy fascia.
Today a new integrated approach to releasing the residuals effects of old injury and pain is focusing on fascia calming and relaxing to remove the pent up tension, overload and stress. Once released the body is able to work move smoothly and the old pain and trauma memories give way naturally to memory and behavior improvement and improved sleep and well-being even weight loss.
