The Benefits of Whole-Body corrective exercises

Your body doesn’t operate in single elements. As the old song goes

The toe bone’s connected to the foot bone,
The foot bone’s connected to the ankle bone,
The ankle bone’s connected to the leg bone,
Now shake dem skeleton bones!

(I won’t put the whole song but might spend most of today singing it!)

In the same way the ligaments, muscles, nerves, blood vessels all move and work in close relationship with each other. So if something goes wrong with one part it will have a knock on effect with other parts. However, so often the pain you feel is often not the actual problem but a symptom of something else being out of synch.

Using your feet as a starting point it is pretty simple to work out any weakness or tightness in your pelvic floor by your arches and which way your feet point. Any issues in your toes can point to where you carry the most of your weight which can give clues to any potential pelvic floor issues, diastasis recti, back, shoulder and neck problems.

The shoes you wear, how you walk, how you sit and how you hold your body are all clues as to what alignment issues you have.

The whole-body method works by exploring and investigating all the ‘clues’ your body is giving you to discover where the root of the problem lies. Then we can work together to take steps to help you use your body in a more optimal way.

I run classes, workshops and one-to-one sessions in Ipswich.
