Wow, Carrie was amazing and truly a professional. Just try it and see..
Carrie, thanks! Evidence Based Medicine is a very useful blog post.
Thank you so much for the body work on Wednesday! You apparently kick-started the healing process, my shoulders have gotten continuously better everyday since.

Focusing on the benefits of John F Barnes myofascial release to heal holistically and permanently. MFR or myofascial release is a specialized manual therapy technique that treats the fascial system in order to repair the body.

Our bodies are built with this connective tissue and no two cells touch each other without first going through the fascial web. Fascia is made up of collagen, elastin, and the ground substance. The collagen is made up of three polypeptide bonds that wrap around each other. This provides stability to the fascial system. The elastin is rubberlike and wraps around the collagen. The elastin gives the connective tissue its flexibility. The ground substance is a gel-like substance that surrounds every cell. When we experience trauma, surgery, or inflammation, the fibers become restricted, preventing fluid from travelling through the fascial system. This causes restrictions that affect not just the injured area but also the entire body. It can put up to 2,000 pounds per square inch of pressure on the body. As you can see from fascia man, when one part of his body is injuried, other body parts become restricted as well. This is why, oftentimes, pain in one area is caused by a restriction in a completely different area. This creates a "straight jacket" on the body. No amount of exercise, heat, or traditional stretching will change the straight jacket. The only way is to get rid of the straight jacket is through the fascial system. Until then, the pain will continue to reappear. By taking a whole body approach to the body, myofascial release allows for true healing. At Matrix Therapy, we use the John F Barnes approach to myofascial release. This involves placing pressure on the fascial system for a long period of time, allowing the fascia to release. The term myofascial release is a buzzword and often gets misused. It is often used to refer to foam rolling. Also, many techniques that are called MFR only release the elastin or do not stay with the tissue for a long enough time to release the collagen. To make a permanent change, the collagen must also be released, allowing the ground substance to return to its proper state. By addressing one part of the body, the entire system changes.

After a stressful week, restorative or yin yoga can be better on tour nervous system. Come back slowly and mindfully. #restorativeyoga #yoga #yinyoga #yogaforsleep #yogi #mindfulness #selfcompassion

Sometimes the twist is more intense with modifications: listen to your body, not the yoga instructor or class. #yoga #nameste #yogi #yogalove #accessibleyoga

Vaccinasana; yoga is about feeling and trusting your body. It is about oneness. By getting a vaccine I am supporting those who can’t. #vaccine #byebyecovid #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #nameste #mindfulness #meditation

Spine length over range of motion. Blocks can make you work harder when you use it to lengthen you spine. #yoga #posture #nameste #anti-gravitymuscles #yogaeverydamnday #physicaltherapy #accessibleyoga

Dolphin is an amazing way to strengthen the shoulder girdle. Too difficult? Add 2 or 4 blocks: or even a chair or wall! #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #nameste #rehab #physicaltherapy #physiotherapy #PT #mindfulness #meditate

It’s okay to bend your knees! Don’t assume that keeping your legs straight in Uttanasana, or forward fold, is not always the most advanced option. Sometimes, even with really flexible students, bending your knees or using blocks to lengthen the spine can enhance the pose. #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #nameste #chairyoga #mindfulness #massage #mfr #myofascialrelease

Playing in the snow. It’s rare we get to do that down here. Modifications are always available! #yoga #snow #snowday #yogi #yogaeverydamnday #nature #vitamind #nameste

We had real snow in Texas. We get snow, a little. Everyone runs out and tried to make snowmen with epic failure. Yesterday, the snowmen were legit: northern snowmen. We got real snow. #yoga #yogi #yogaeverydamnday #namaste #dogsofinstagram #snow #snowday #nature #naturephotography

Bolsters under the knees provide support and can protect your low back in savasana. This bolster from Brentwood home is one of my favorites!! #yoga #bolster #yogi #namaste #yogaeverydamnday #instapict

Wrist pain? How do you engage your wrists when in downward facing dog? If you weight-bear through the palm and fingers, you likely create stress in the wrist. Focus instead on weight bearing through the knuckles. #yoga #foenwardfacingdog #namaste #yogaeverydamnday

Dogs love restorative yoga too! 🧘‍♀️. 🧘‍♂️. 🧘. #yoga #restorativeyoga #yogaeverydamnday #dogsofinstagram

Happy Thanksgiving. Be safe and keep your gatherings small/limited. #thanksgiving #staysafe #gratitude #mindfulness

Which pose is more advanced? Many may think the second pose is the most advanced because my hands touch the ground. But look at my back: rounded and lacking core engagement. In the first and third poses I use props to elongate my spine, engage my core, and stay present. I have much less risk of injury here, and I have #PRESENCE. These poses are more advanced. 🧘‍♀️. 🧘. #fitness #yogaeverydamnday #meditation #yogi #love #namaste #health #wellness #yogalife #yogalove #mindfulness #rehab #prehab #physio #physicaltherapy #physiotherapy #healthyjoints #injury #athlete #puglife #pugsofinstagram #dogstagram #adoptdontshop #rescue #puglove #dogs_of_instagram #pugstagram #pugnation

I’m returning to Instagram after a long break. I left for several reasons, one of which is that, no matter how authentic I tried to make my posts, something always felt insincere to me. Fast forward to now. I started to take pictures again of things to post. There is this giant flower that’s technically a weed growing under my porch. And the truth is, I love it. It pokes out of my porch bringing little mini flowers. I took a picture of this to share: then I realized something. It’s BS. Why? Because I wanted to send a message of how much I love the imperfection of this plant, and how we should embrace the flaws in ourselves and out lives. But I did it by hiding all the other imperfections on my porch. I was moving everything around so you wouldn’t see everything that’s wrong with my porch. This is leading to my new post theme: Instagram versus reality. Where I show that even when I post a beautiful picture of my home, my yoga practice, or anything, I’ll also post the picture of how chaotic it actually is outside that isolated picture. As you can see, my porch is not this beautiful thing with one flower popping out. There are empty pots, more weeds, dirt on the compost, dog poop throughout the lawn. It’s a mess. And that’s okay. #instagramversusreality #instagramvsreality #instagramversusreallife #instagramvsreallife #yoga #yoga&coffee #meditation #mindfulness #acceptance

Gratitude 🙏 is a common buzz word these days, but have you really taken the time to cultivate it? There is a lot of research showing the benefits of it, but often the practice can end up superficial. Dig a little deeper this November with @celesteellisyoga as she kicks off a 30 Day Gratitude Challenge. Check out her bio.

Is your sunscreen killing coral?

Sunscreen dissolves in water.

Chemical sunscreen kills coral.

But mineral sunscreen does not.

Choose sunscreen carefully.
