We are back in business. I’ve dropped the ball in updating my website programs and suffered the dreaded look of a website gone mad. Technology used to be my forfeit but I am not sure where I fell behind. I marvel at the Instagram photos that have beautiful graphics and then throw my hands up. I’ve recruited my younger daughter to help me navigate the graphic side of things as I expand my portfolio of offerings in the new year. I am hoping that it begins to make some brain changes in me, so I don’t fall behind again.
Segue to the new book I am reading for my pain mentorship – The Brain’s Way of Healing by Norman Doidge, M.D. I just began the book and look forward to a few days of downtime to read from cover to cover. The way that we have viewed the brain as completely separate from our body and as the master computer with eventually degenerative parts has been given the overhaul by the newer brain studies and neuroplasticity.
Stay tuned as I share some monumental goodies from this book and how it relates to pain. I am also wishing each and everyone of you a very Peaceful Holiday filled with joys of light and love.
Place the two blocks at either the lowest or medium height, equidistant from each other bolster lengthwise on top of blocks. A s-fold or triple fold blanket on top of bolster. It may be more comfortable without blocks. Legs straddle the props at one end, and lengthen body over them. Head will rest on props. Additional blanket(s) may be used behind knees. Ideally props should extend all the way to the pelvis area but this may not be the case with your body structure. Stay here for 10 minutes to begin with, rotating head side to side.
Modify as needed with a chair or in a straddle position.
