" I feel great, what did you just do?"



A client asked the other day ....'It's about what's not working why its not working, but put you back better than what you were"

You telling me, that Im feeling better and better because the more the blockages clear the better my body works, I felt great in the water today.

My surfing, I'm getting to my feet like I am a 30 year old again...So all i have to do is look after it? Practice to get better

A Client came suggesting " Look I'm a Difficult Case"

Look, you're human, you are not an octopus, your body genetically is essentially the same as mine, it follows the same rules, the same rules as mine....

The genetic code has one purpose build that body, but its also in the same code to protects itself. Protect itself from the accidents you have. In protecting itself, it shuts you out and that is part of the problem

The client wants to be better, but to be fully better takes time and is relative to what they want, and what the body can give them. The clients responsibility is to keep maintaining better habits....thats all, the body will do the rest.

This client was a male, and full of 'vim and bravado' Yet not a youngster anymore, the body was letting him down.

His passion of surfing of running of just being a full on 'lad' was his nemesis.

A farmers boy, played heaps of sport, rode bikes, had a series of car accidents, and some serious work accidents.

The accidents added up, and for each accident the body needed to compensate. Did the body ask permission, nope, did it tell the client what it was going to do, nope.

But sooner or later, the client starts to feel the effects

The compensations happen at muscle, at joint, at the fascia.....yes they are structure, but they are tissue, made up of cells, which are all chemical built, chemically and neurologically controlled, by what? That brain, the bits you do not have access to.

On all levels the body has been influenced, but it stays there, controlled by what, that brain that you do not have access too

So in saying or giving a name to something...like osteoporosis or rheumatoid arthritis or Pagets or you have a thyroid issue is over simplifying things.

It came from somewhere, yes it's genetic, but something triggered it, and something is keeping it there. So, deal with both.

None of you had it at the beginning, if the body is seriously non-viable before birth most of the time the baby will not reach full term.

You are a creation of your genetic make-uo and the environment and experiences this body undergoes.....if you beat it up, it will over protect itself and you age very quickly.

1. With this chap, again as usual, gather the history that this body has undergone. 'so what accidents have you had"

2. Get the body to recognise that the survival systems are in over protection. Too many physical structures do not work, Here, I test for what is not working. I must get the body to recognise that too many things are failing or not working. For to get better at anything we must learn, and in this case the body needs to learn that it is failing

3. Allow the body to create a hierarchy of need. Deal with this first, then this, then this....reset the body physical structures back and get the whole team back on the paddock.

4. Give the body something better than what it has been doing.....give re-patterning mobility work, so the body can be taught to get better and better.

Clients responsibility is to reteach the body. Every day as much as possible, don't treat it as an exercise, learning a new language doesn't happen over night, just be patient and you will get better at it.

Getting better is a life time processss. If your body is not working well, then getting better is one step at a time...
