Yesterday, a local massage therapist hired me. She wasn't able to work due to pain in the shoulder radiating down into her fingers. Upon assessment, I was able to determine the following compensatory actions were occurring and creating pain which led to her missing work: ~ Serratus anterior was not being utilized in the way it's meant to.
~ Anterior deltoid is likely inflamed and overworked.
~ Posterior deltoid needs biomechanical reeducation as it's not being utilized properly.
~ Anterior rhomboids need strengthening. ~ I provided a brief working big picture deep dive into how the actual (complex and highly brilliant) shoulder girdle works and discussed importance of the manubrium. ~ I gave her two home exercises to work on the above specifically targeted areas of concern along with the instructions of being consistent, yet gentle, and compassionate in all movements. Interwoven into each movement is deep, conscious breathing. ~ I also provided her with an intuitive reading to guide journaling, meditations, and lasting, deep, true healing. ~ the physical layer was just ONE aspect of this work and the pain is what led her to seek support. I work with the WHOLE PERSON and every session works to heal the individual at the deepest level. ~ This was just in one session and was a first step in moving toward empowerment through knowledge and interception. Sessions are $130 and usually last 60-75 minutes.
Please refer me to anyone who might be able to benefit from Yoga Therapy.
