Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor, so do your homework and be sure to consult the appropriate (not always a doctor) healthcare professional before and when using any of the information below.


1)Exercise will take time (as bones have to change shape through replacing cells, and, the brain has to remap/retrain multiple movement patterns and combinations of patterns, like developing a new habit AND breaking the old, but will ultimately prove to be more effective than most other interventions when done regularly over time.

2) With both movement and modalities, you will know, generally, in around 3 sessions whether or not a method or modality will help, unless otherwise specified. Look at how fast others reported results, if every other person took three months before a noticeable shift don’t count on being the exception. But, again, when in doubt, three times and they’re out.

3) “The Rule of Three” above also works for deciding when to move on to something else when what used to work has stopped working like it used to. If you haven’t made progress for 3 or more sessions than that may be as far as they/it can take you -OR- it may be that something else needs to happen for their work to be effective, so “bench” them and look elsewhere until you feel a need to go back (could be a few appointments, could be a few decades, if it worked once it can work again in similar situations)

4) Finally, methods, modalities, etc…, they are all just tools, or keys. The right tool for the right job, or the right key for the right lock, can make or break how difficult or persistent any problem can be. The more educated and aware you are of all your options, the bigger your toolbox, and the less work, money, and time it will cost you to feel how you want to feel.

Magnesium – The vast majority are deficient. Blood tests are inaccurate as all but 1% of the body’s Mag. supply is in the bones. It takes 10g of magnesium to metabolize 1g of sugar, even more for alcohol sugars like those found in hard liquor. Magnesium outperforms many antidepressants and antianxiety medications by increasing blood flow to various areas of the brain and other tissues. Many issues of unexplained muscular tension, certain forms of headache, and many forms of insomnia are caused by or related to mag. deficiency. 

*-Continuum Movement – body and breath awareness through gentle movement exercises. A personal favorite and, like Rolfing, a modality that I can easily say has saved my life in many ways, if not literally.

*- Cold lasers : Can break up fascia and scar tissue, as well as stimulate the immune system and cellular activity for faster healing.

The law of averages is the flaw of averages, in that while an average can give a general idea of where to look, no individual will ever be average across the board/as a whole, so we all have to write our own “owners manual” for our individual body/mind/soul, otherwise life will always be an uphill battle that only gets worse with age. Have fun with it and share this stuff with your friends.
