Learn the basic Spinefulness teaching of how to sit from NPR's health report:
- Changing the way you sit
Student, age 12
This student came to Spinefulness with aches and pain in her neck and lower back.
Photo on the right shows a position where Karen can be relaxed and in her bones, and release chronic tension.
In the left photo, the neck is stressed and so are the muscles in the pelvis. Her muscles are holding her spine from more misalignment.
Pain and tension aren't caused by sitting;
The problem is HOW she is sitting.
Jenn, age 48
When Jenn found Spinefulness, she was riddled with pain and tension (left photo, age 39). Pain limited her shoulder mobility: it hurt to take off a shirt. She winced from back pain picking up her toddler. It hurt to sit and to drive. Stairs hurt her knees.
Most people believe that as we age, we are supposed to:
Become less flexible, mobile and strong
Have back and joint pain
But this is FALSE!
Chronic muscle tension causes all of the above not aging. Eliminate chronic muscle tension and you can:
BE flexible, mobile and strong at any age
SHED back and joint pain
Today, Jenn is taller, free from pain, and has increased flexibility, strength and range of motion in all her joints. As an added bonus, she has regained height, slimmed down from a size 8/10 pant to a size 4 pant, with NO change in weight.
Paloma, age 59
In her 40s (left photo), Paloma suffered from chronic knee, ankle and bunion pain. A survivor of trauma, she still did not feel at ease in her body. She felt ungrounded and easily moved off center.
In the center photo, at age 57, she had just begun her Spinefulness practice. Paloma quickly became a passionate advocate of Spinefulness for somatic healing in trauma recovery. The calm and grounding effects of her Spinefulness practice, made it an important part of her emotional health. In releasing somatically stored trauma, she has regained access to previously dormant areas of her system.
Now 59 (right photo), Paloma has transformed her pain and her physique while healing her mind, spine, and spirit connection. In her taller skeletal frame, her skin and flesh smooth out. Her neck is longer, waist thinner, and circulation improved. Her knee and ankle are better, her bunion is diminishing, and her days are filled with increasingly more joy, freedom and lightness.
