The gift of choice

As I sat in front of the lake in the park, a nagging thought kept popping up: “I should finalize and release the blog post. I feel comfortable with it." I sighed with relief. Within a few seconds, my mind was racing. I slowed down, focussed my attention on the Canadian geese, as I observed my thoughts and sensations. The stories I was telling myself, were quite revealing: "You know releasing the blog post is premature, don’t be hasty, work on it a little longer before giving it birth..". Now, my energy levels were dropping, my breath shallow and soon after I was sensing my jaw grip. What was going on? Just, minutes earlier, I was excited to share my post, now my mind was busy creating enemy images and I was feeling frustrated and slightly defeated, almost ready to drop the post! Do you ever experience an inner conflict that seems like you have no choice? About healthy choices: When dealing with concerns about emotional decisions, such as, releasing a post or facing an uncomfortable conversation, fears and resistance often shape our actions and outcomes. Our mind highjacks our body and before you know it you're stuck in a loop and most likely overwhelmed. Consider taking the following steps, before taking an action. Tune in, listen to your body and thoughts, and imagine a different outcome, that serves you better, hence the gift of choice.  In practice: Step I Observe your physical sensations: areas of your body feel tight, compressed. Notice whether you are holding your breath, the rhythm, is it shallow or full? Step II Identify the story/ judgments you are telling yourself in regards to the choice/s at hand. (Fill in the blanks). The thought of                   (the action e.g. releasing the blog post, confronting my boss... your version) reminds me of how                  (e.g. ill prepared, incompetent… your version) I am. Besides                    (e.g. nobody is interested, I am not good at this, who do I think I am… your version) The thought of taking an action triggers feelings: When I think of                  (the action) I experience                      (e.g concern, fear, anxiety or excitement, stimulation… your version) Outcome/choice: I am going to                   (e.g hold off, avoid... your version) the situation.  Notice how that feels in your body. (repeat step I) Step III Creating a new story! When I                   (action as above) what truly matter to me is                                 (e.g self-expression, competence, contribution, connection, …..). When I                    (express, connect, contribute...) I experience                         (ease, joy, stimulated ...) The new outcome/ choice: Once I                    (action as above) I get to                   (e.g. contribute, restore communication...) - values that matter to me. Now, observe how that feels in your body. (repeat step I) Step IV Ready to take action! / Choice - Now that you have considered both stories what outcome do you choose?

Breathing check-IN

“I can hardly breathe!!!” Angela stated, as she came into my office for her first visit. I hardly expected her to understand what a check-IN entails or why it would benefit her. In fact, for most people “checking in” is often associated with travel, rather than a SELF-CARE opportunity. However, for me a check-IN, is a way to observe our sensations, thoughts and feelings in real time. In the months that followed, not only did Angela’s check-IN’s become more grounded and present, but the impact extended to her physical well being, feeling more at ease, energetic and hopeful both in her personal and professional life. The first part of the check-IN brings attention to your breathing. I practice it both with self and clients daily. “PROTECTIVE BREATHING” (Ron Baker). This tool helps interrupt the habitual breathing patterns, when we feel overwhelmed, anxious, stressed or fearful. Our breathing habit becomes: short, shallow and restricted. In practice: #1 Imagine holding a baby. Your intention is to calm her down. Place your hand on the abdomen and begin to inhale through the nose. Pay attention: send the breath down towards the hand. Can you sense your belly go in and out? #2 As you exhale, open your mouth wide and send the breath out to a point in the far distance. #3 Continue doing this for 1-2 minutes. Repeat daily. The benefits: The breathing check-IN is like giving oneself an interior massage: restoring calm, balance and informing your autonomic nervous system, the threat is gone and you are safe. This tool is especially helpful when you feel triggered and out of sorts. Give it a try.  After completing the exercise, notice if anything feels different? Calmer, more centered… What did you learn about yourself?

Why suffer from lower back pain?

Dana, a 45 year old mother and an avid runner, came in for a treatment with severe ongoing lower back pain. A couple of months earlier, she had sprained her ankle. Within a few days, once the discomfort in the ankle subsided, she was back in her routine. Soon afterwards. she began to experience sharp pains in her lower back and a tightness in her hips. To alleviate the discomfort, she cut back on her physical activities, while looking for solutions that could enable her to regain her regular mobility. As is often the case, when we experience as injury, we compensate by using other areas of our body to prevent extensive use of the injured area. After a short period, the compensation stratagy, originally intended to bring relief, becomes a habit, changing ones entire movement pattern. Unaware that her movement patterns had changed, she was now looking for a solution for her back pains. How could she fix it? Clearly she was not a novice and had explored a number of treatments. I asked her to do some basic movements walking, turning, bending. I observed her movement, to see where she may be straining and what maybe limiting her movements. “What can you do about it?” she inquired. What differentiates functional integration from other modalities is the focus on the nervous system and integration, rather than the musculature and the bones (structure). In my work I use touch, and gentle guided movement, as a means to self organization. Over the next few treatments Dana was able to reorganize her movements, reducing the discomfort she experienced in the first place, she is able to regain almost full functioning capacity and get back to the activities she values.

Tension, Ease and Balance

 This was one of those mornings. My body refused to cooperate. Every move felt strenuous. My lower back had collapsed. My whole body seemed to be throbbing with pain. In the past, I would have taken a couple of Advil's and waited impatiently for the pain to subside.
