The Posterior Chain and The Foot Connection - In this newsletter, I will show you the way in which the bottoms of our feet are connected to our posterior legs (and actually all the way up to the upper back) in the way of what is known as the "posterior chain."

I love this adjustment that Mike Reinold is encouraging. This form ensures that you will truly isolate your hip adductors and not engage your back and opposite hip. I will definitely adopt this approach in my future sessions. Check out for more amazing functional exercise and rehab strengthening tips.

Try Box Breathing 03/20/2020

Try Box Breathing

A great way to minimize anxiety and stimulate the Vagus Nerve to turn off the fight-flight-or freeze response is to practice Box breathing. Please note that I prefer more of a visualization and a movement of the diaphragmatic breath to “move downward toward the pelvic floor” rather than to have the goal of “filling up the lungs with air” which tends to encourage more neck breathing.
Neck breathing tends to be burdensome on the neck musculature while encouraging shallow breath intake.

Shoulder Stabilizing with the Serratus Anterior Muscle - Here, in this month's newsletter, I discuss the importance of strengthening the Serratus Anterior muscle to minimize scapular winging, provide overhead strength, and improve thoracic posture. With good form comes great function and less discomfort and pain. There is also a great video with specific exercises.

Massage of the Plantar Fascia Increases Hamstring Flexibility - % 09/25/2019

Massage of the Plantar Fascia Increases Hamstring Flexibility - %

Therapeutic Foot Massage, anyone? I have found that by stretching, elongating, and lengthening your hamstrings, your plantar fascia is also indirectly benefited. If you sit at a desk all day and have plantar fasciitis, it might be from all that sitting! Sitting for long periods of time can tighten hamstrings and thereby affect your feet! The body is amazing: everything is connected.

The Gluteus Maximus: Get Sciatic Pain Relief

Did you the know the piriformis is actually a pelvic floor muscle??
Dr Sarah Ellis Duvall is my new fave! She has loads of information on sciatica, pelvic floor issues, core strengthening, and post-Partum support. Check out this link to learn about the gluteal and piriformis connection to sciatic pain. And then like her page for tips on strengthening your core and glutes.

The Gluteus Maximus: Get Sciatic Pain Relief A weak gluteus maximus can cause a person to clinch or squeeze their glutes all the time. This can set off the sciatic nerve.

I Now Suspect the Vagus Nerve Is the Key to Well-being 05/27/2019

I Now Suspect the Vagus Nerve Is the Key to Well-being

Diaphragmatic breathing is essential for nourishing our parasympathetic nervous system! Sometimes we cannot control our environmental stressors, but how we respond can be as simple as taking a deep breath and slowing down.
"When we breathe in, she explained, the sensory nodes on our lungs (“lung stretch receptors”) send information up through the vagus nerve and into the brain, and when we breathe out, the brain sends information back down through the vagus nerve to slow down or speed up the heart. So when we breathe slowly, the heart slows, and we relax. Conversely, when we breathe quickly, our heart speeds up, and we feel amped, or anxious."

I Now Suspect the Vagus Nerve Is the Key to Well-being “Stimulating” it leads to calmness, but how and why?
