@andybuckworth has been working his little tush off trying to recover from a horrific double leg break. We are pretty sure he's heading on the right path because he was doing front flips on his bmx yesterday. We want to wish him all the very best heading back to his home away from home in LA before returning to do more wild shit on the @nitrocircus tour down under. We are gonna miss the lunch break banter with our unofficial next gen team member. We want everyone to feel and move better no matter what you do for a crust. That's what the next gen fam is all about. 🤞🏼

What Are Trigger Points? And Why Do They Occur?
If one part of your body is not performing at its optimal level, other areas of the body will compensate. Eventually, these other areas can be compromised as well. Over time, this leads to injury.
Muscles that have Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrPs) have been found to decrease range of motion because of pain. The muscle can fatigue more rapidly as well.
The body will cope with this abnormal level of tension by laying down Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrPs) in the area. A myofascial trigger point was defined by Drs. Travell and Simons as “a hyperirritable spot in skeletal muscle that is associated with a hypersensitive palpable nodule”. It is common for these to form near the neuromuscular junction, where the nerve and muscle meet. In many cases, the surrounding nerves will be affected, and the fascia will thicken, which results in pain and discomfort.
Snippet from my FB live yesterday explaining one of the myofascial release techniques we will be working with in tonight’s massage workshop. The illiopsoas can be shortened and tight in many people - it works to lift the leg up closer to the body, so every time you walk, hike (especially up hill), run or cycle, we’re using this muscle. It can also end up further shortened if we spend a lot of time sitting or sleeping in a curled up position with our legs flexed towards our body.
We’ll be locating and releasing this muscle group using firstly a soft inflatable massage ball, and then for those who are brave, diving in deeper with a harder ball (with or without a block to elevate further). Our landmark is locating the front hip bone (ASIS) and navel, drawing an imaginary diagonal line between the two locations and finding the mid point - you’ll be able to feel the muscle pop up for yourself if you lie down on your back with your knees bent, feet on floor, and cough or laugh.
Come and join me for tonight’s Massage workshop focusing in on the whole lower body, back and shoulders for our Cycling theme (you don’t need to be a cyclist to attend!). My next public workshop will be in April but you can also find me at Sanctuary music festival teaching a Yin, Roll and Release class in February or book in your own workplace or sporting team class.
Fun fact: your butcher would know this muscle group as the fillet mignon or tenderloin!
PUSH. Aside from lifting our heads so we can see the wide world, pushing is what we learn first. In the first few months of life we are working on developing strong shoulder and torso muscles so we can MOVE onto rolling, crawling and eventually standing upright and propelling forward. Like I always say, when all else fails revert back to the BASICS. Even if you think you're moving alright, getting on the floor and acting like a baby will smack some sense into you. The brain will always find a way to keep going forward, it doesn't always mean we are doing it the best we can. Especially if you have PAIN everyday. Pain isn't an inevitable byproduct of getting older it's your body screaming out for you to change some shit up in your life 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔
SHOULDER PAIN SERIES - PROTRACTED SHOULDER GIRDLE, HYPERKYPHOTIC T-SPINE AND AUTOMOBILIZATION WITH THE @BLACKROLL®
Why your shoulders and thoracic spine are rounded?
Many people suffer nowadays from this alignment which is caused mainly by 2 🗝muscles:
1⃣the pectoralis minor and 2⃣the lower trapezius muscle (ascending part of the trapezius). 1⃣The pectoralis minor runs from the coracoid process down to ribs 3-5. It will become adaptively short when sitting at the desk, working with computers, favor exercises such as the bench press or other pressing exercises etc., which most people do! Being in poor positions and using the pecs will cause this adaptative shortening and tightness. When the pec minor is positioned short it will pull down on the scapula tilting it forward. It also will inhibit (weaken) the rhomboids, lower trapezius and serratus anterior which will lead to muscular imbalances!
2⃣The lower trap runs from vertebra T7-T12 up to the spine of the scapula. Normally this muscle pulls down on the scapula from the back creating a balancing act with the pectoralis minor for the scapula position. But if the pec minor is getting tight and short throughout poor positioning the lower trap gives up and gets weaker and weaker!
This poor alignment we are talking about can even lead to mechanical problems in the cervical spine or shoulder joint as it makes it very difficult to use the glenohumeral joint in centrated neutral position. That's why it is essential to work on it!
Nevertheless there are some other important muscles which can lead to protracted shoulders... I will talk about in the following posts of this series!
On the picture you can see different possibilities how to work by yourself on this problems with the @BLACKROLL® and @BLACKROLL® BALL releasing the pec minor and 2 variations of mobilizing your thoracic spine as well as 1 exercise to put some 🔥in the lower trap to activate it!
"Christine was so skilled and knowledgeable about all the muscles in the body and helped me immensely with the back pain I had." —Beth S.
. . .
Knowledge is power. Knowledge can change lives. And yes, knowledge can even heal back pain... but it takes a skilled, caring therapist to put all that knowledge to work.
Luckily, we have a few of those (15, to be exact). 😉

We have all heard about bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons in our body. But do you know about fascia?
Myofascia is a web of tissue that surrounds our muscles and is connected throughout the entire body. It is the focus of foam rolling, trigger pointing and some massage techniques.
Targeting this tissue has been dubbed "myofascial release." If you are feeling tight, sore, or have limited mobility, you should try myofascial release. It is safe and effective.
Myofascial release has been proven to be effective before you begin training/playing, and it is also proven to be effective if you are laying around the house on a Sunday like today.
If you want to feel fresh for Monday's training, look into foam rolling. Also, give it a try before your next warm up.
If you have any questions about how to get started, comment or message us. More about this to come.
Travail d'etirement de l'élévateur de la scapula.
Prenez soin de votre nuque tous les jours, l'utilisation abusive des smartphones, ordinateurs, notre position assise sont responsable de douleurs chroniques permanentes. Vous pouvez étirer, vous faire masser avec @coachinglife_fredmagnani 😊😊😊, travailler avec un rouleau de massage, une balle lacrosse ou de tennis tous les jours afin de diminuer les restrictions et compensations musculaires 😠😠.
Prenez soin de vous.
TRADUZIONE NEL COMMENTO 👌The trigger point is a node in a muscle fiber consisting of a set of sarcomeres in a state of maximum and continuous pathological contraction. The pain is caused by the accumulation of toxic chemical waste not removed, produced by anaerobic metabolism (lactic acid, calcium ions, etc ...) and by the release of vasoactive substances that irritate the involved nerve endings, initiating a responsible micro-inflammatory nucleus, precisely, of pain. In these circumstances, in fact, the increase in the permeability of the capillaries, and the consequent stasis, causes a vicious circle of leukocyte infiltration (chemotaxis towards the site of damage), inflammation, edema, ischemia, excitation of nerve endings and transmission of pain in the central nervous system. Furthermore, the trigger point assumes the peculiarity of a condition of hyperalgesia, ie the increase in superficial and deep pain response in areas both adjacent and far from its site.How do I activate the trigger points? A trigger point can be activated by: - excessive muscle mass - stress - trauma or injury - missed or incorrect stretching. The daily clinical experience of doctors and therapists has shown that painful symptoms are frequently attributed to trigger points, which can be easily "deactivated" by means of "blocking trigger points" (see for example reflexology). The blocking of trigger points decreases the pressure in the fibrous band of connective tissue that completely covers the muscles of the whole body, acting in accordance with the physiology, working on the cause of problems to prevent risks and achieve the best performance. The use of these innovative techniques certainly helps to prevent the damage of inadequate training, if combined with a rigorous anatomical and physiological knowledge of the human body interpreted according to the principles of tensegrity.
A weekend spent salty and full of good grub with my girl, the pups and our newly engaged good friends 💍 that's how it's done I reckon. When the working week nearly causes a mental boil over just remember this formula- a cosy little airbnb stay, puppy love and friendship xoxo
