Spinefulness Results

Karen*, age 12

RELIEF 

Karen* came to Spinefulness with aches and pain in her neck and lower back.  (* name changed for protection)

  • The seated position 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.  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 

VIBRANCY

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:

  • Lose height  

  • 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:

  • REGAIN height  

  • 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 

TRANSFORMATION

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.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I have been having a nagging, chronic muscle spasm in my left glute --yes, a literal "pain in my butt"  for 3+ years.  One of the only things that has brought me relief is practicing Spinefulness.   As a primary care physician, I regularly see patients who come to the clinic complaining about chronic neck / back / buttock pain from poor spinal alignment that causes chronic tension and pain in their body.  I often recommend Spinefulness because I know it will help them.  What Jenn has to teach us is so valuable--I wish everyone knew about it.  I once saw her adjust the posture my friend who had 5+ years of neck pain in class, and her pain went away immediately.  Another example: one of my colleagues was seeing multiple practitioners for severe neck and back pain that had her taking time off from work, with minimal improvement.  I recommended she see Jenn, and she finally felt some relief.  The wonderful thing is that Spinefulness is a practice that you can do on your own, to facilitate your own healing in between appointments and classes.  The information Jenn has to share is eye-opening--even to a physician--and the practice of Spinefulness will get you more in tune with your body.
