As we officially start the holidays this week, feelings of overwhelm are likely to occur for a lot of us. We also may be triggered by someone in our lives or reminded of a traumatic event.

I personally feel like the wellness community over emphasizes the notion of ‘grounding’ instead of being centered. Here’s what I do when I have 👆🏼feelings. Link in profile.

In this short video in the Fix Your Carpal Tunnel series, I go into common emotional connections I’ve seen over the last 10+ years.

The hands are what we use for ‘doing’, so I’ve found that the folks who have come to me for help with chronic wrist pain are get-er-done types who often have a hard time receiving.

I go over some other connections as well as some tips for self-healing around this re:wrist pain.

Onto the often tight and weak sides of the body and how they relate to chronic wrist pain!

In this episode we start at the lateral calves and walk our way up via self-massage techniques as well as stretching for the lateral line of the body.

The video wraps up with activating areas that are often turned off, including the lateral aspect of the wrists.

WHY have I never thought to do this for back pain?! Get that facial stretch on!!!



09/26/2021

Next video in Carpal Tunnel and Wrist Pain Relief is up!

We’ll delve into how tension in your opposite leg can impact pain in the wrist and forearm. Yes, everything is connected!

Link in profile with a simple solution of self-massage, stretches and proper reactivation of muscles along fascial chains.



09/23/2021

In today’s episode I cover some of my favorite products for releasing tension in the hands and forearms. These are beneficial for carpal tunnel symptoms as well as wrist pain when trying to workout.

We also cover how to assess strength in the hands so that you can reassess as the course goes on and see which complementary exercises are most helpful for you in this course.

Helping this young programmer improve his posture.

Unwound some tension in his arms, which helped his shoulders open up. We then found that tension in his mid-back (lower traps) as well as triceps were throwing off his hips and not allowing his glutes to engage.

This is a fairly common pattern I see as it follows the Posterior Kinetic Chain. Pictured in second photo as depicted by Joseph Schwartz.



09/03/2021

New series starting this week! We’ll spend the next couple months looking why you could be having carpal tunnel or wrist pain and how to improve it at home.

The last 2 episodes of Fix Your Plantar Fasciitis are up on YT (link in description).

This completes a 10-part ‘Masterclass’ so-to-speak on common reasons why people end up with foot pain, what to do to fix it at home and how to keep it from coming back.



08/19/2021

We’re wrapping up the Fix Your Plantar Fasciitis course this week!

I want to highlight this video, in particular, as it has some really helpful exercises you can do at home to fix your gait (how you walk) which is helpful for anyone who has had lower body issues…think hips on down.

Over the last 10 years I’ve read a lot about gait and taken several workshops. These are a few of my favorite, simple exercises that can be done anywhere. AND they’re super helpful to do before taking a long walk or run to get more proper spiraling through your body (think fascia!) as you walk. 💃💃💃💃

The calf and foot portions of How to Fix Your Plantar Fasciitis are up! I know a lot of you started running and/or walking as a form of exercise and stress relief during the pandemic. These videos contain a lot of self-care to also AVOID something like plantar fasciitis.

Take care of your feet! They do a lot and are under-appreciated.

If your feet are strong, flexible and mobile, you’ll feel a better connection to your core and better fluidity in movement. 👯🤸🏼‍♂️👯🤸🏼‍♂️

First 3 episodes of the Fix Your Plantar Fasciitis series are up! We look at how your upper body tension—triceps & neck as well as how your tight diaphragm (read: poor posture) can affect tight calves and feet.

Fourth episode will drop later this week where we get into those tight hammies!

These photos detail a new client that I’ve seen a handful of times who is trying to deepen his upright squat. First photo is from our first session, swipe to see our last session.

His other goal is a handstand, to which I said, “Great, cause they’re related!”

Getting a good, deep squat involves upper back and scapular strength. Read: postural muscles.

Since Covid, more and more clients are coming in with forward heads from poor workplace setups at home. For this client, he’s connecting with some new spots up top and it’s helping improve his squat.


04/21/2021

Now that we have released/stretched/re-engaged all of the things, it’s time to work them. 💪🏼

This beginner pelvic floor routine hits up anything connecting to the underwear lines and is appropriate for some currently experiencing pelvic/lower back pain or just on the other side of an injury or pregnancy.

04/01/2021

In this episode, we get into the meat of things about how to release specific pelvic floor muscles and how to properly engage those areas (read: not Kegels IMHO).

Releasing these spots will initiate relaxation all over including the lower back, neck and legs. Doing some of these before attempting any core work may also help you engage your abs more properly and make breathing easier.

Link to channel in profile. It’s well worth the try, promise. 😘💫

Relax your holes!! In this episode of Pelvic Floor Rehab we’re getting into jaw/head/neck tension as well as the diaphragm and how those areas can create tension and dysfunction in the pelvic floor.

Seeing as you’re looking at a screen right now I GUARANTEE you that you could use some of the gentle self-massage techniques in this video. 😘🤗

Link to YouTube in profile. ☝🏼


02/25/2021

Next episode in the Pelvic Floor Rehab course is up! We’ll look at the ankles & calves and how to reactivate those areas. I’m hard pressed to think of an example where I have worked with a pelvic floor issue (again, anything in the underwear lines) where there wasn’t a gait (how you walk) component. Not pushing off correctly or fully on one foot can lead to hip impingements and/or lower back pain.

We’ll go through some stretches/releases in this area as well as some of my favorite tools to help keep these areas flexible.



02/09/2021

Tight feet can make your neck (and jaw) tight!

Did my uncoiling technique on this client’s right foot first and you can see how it dropped in the photo on the left.

She matched up pretty well by the time I finished the other foot. Then I went in for neck and jaw work.

I like starting distal or away from where I feel tension connected, so that by the time I get to ‘the spot’ the client’s body is more ready to let go…and it’s less work for me to get that to happen.

Last fall I did a case study on a friend with advanced MS to see if CranioSacral Therapy (CST) could help his symptoms and pain.

CST is a gentle, hands-on technique that seeks to improve the function of the Central Nervous System and other body systems that relate to it, including the Immune System. It has helped me immensely in healing from severe head trauma as a child, and I’ve seen it do wonders for my clients with histories of physical as well as emotional trauma.

We met weekly in the 2 months preceding the election and I performed the basic, 10 steps on him. He had a 60% improvement in his pain levels!!!

For more info on the study and how we quantified the progress, https://chulel.com/new-blog/2021/1/17/can-craniosacral-therapy-help-multiple-sclerosis
