Soft Tissue Injuries – A New Approach

 
 

art_london_europeMost healthy soft tissue is made of type I collagen connective tissue, which consists of a specific type of protein. 95% of healthy soft tissue fibres run longitudinally in the same direction that the muscle contracts.

There are approximately 20 different types of protein that make up different types of collagen. When healthy tissue is injured the body uses these different types of collagen protein to repair and stabilise the tissue.

Many people think that practising Dynamic Yoga means a fast challenging practice.

This is not so. Dynamic Yoga actually works by using the dynamics of the hands and feet in the form of spiralling.

 

Spiralling is achieved from using and positioning the feet correctly. This involves grounding, broadening and lengthening. This originates in the ball of the big toe. From this it is possible to adjust the position of the pelvis and the knees. Making the simplest of adjustments to the feet will spiral the calf and thigh muscles in opposite directions causing one muscle to open and the other to close.

Many of our patients had experiences with Acupuncture and not all of them clearly understood, what acupuncture is and what it does. Questions on Acupuncture answered by our coalleague and guest Ciara Woods Lic.Ac.TCM, MBAcC. Please read on if you think you want to know if Acupuncture can help you.

 

 

 



What is Acupuncture?

 

Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. This process stimulates movement of energy,   within the body, allowing natural healing to take place. These points are selected based on over 3,000 years of experience in China and training acupuncturists.

 

How Does Acupuncture Work?

 

This highly effective system of medical care is based on natural laws which govern the movement of vital life giving energy, both in nature and in the body. This energy, called "Qi", moves through the body in precise channels supporting functions of the body, mind and spirit. When "Qi" is moving disharmoniously, imbalance begins to surface in the form of specific symptoms. The gentle insertion of hair thin needles at specific points along the channels of Qi energy, help restore harmony.

The Alexander Technique today could possibly be termed as a form of postural re-education.

I don’t think any Alexander Teacher is happy with the word ‘posture’ but it is used to describe what we do all the time! Good movement is graceful and poised.

Poise is an optimal state of balance throughout a movement.

 

It will also be efficient, elegant and command a certain presence. It is not static – which the term posture implies. This is because it requires a certain awareness.

Don Weed (also a Chiropractor and Teacher of the Alexander Technique) described it beautifully when he wrote that the Alexander Technique could be described in three words: ‘Fred Estaire dancing’ (Weed, 1990).
