Move Bones! That's the difference...
Many people have already discovered Myopractic for effective, long-term relief from pain. The name Myopractic is derived from the Greek "Myo" meaning "muscle" and "Practic" meaning "to do".
Myopractic treats a broad range of complaints including Sciatica, Back, Neck, Shoulder and Knee pain. It is also extremely effective for migraines, vertigo and headaches.
Myopractic works on the principle that "muscles move bones". There is always a corresponding muscle dysfunction to any bone misalignment, which is the main cause of pain and discomfort. Myopractic is an advanced form of musculo-skeletal bodywork which achieves long term relief.
Myopractic corrects muscles spasms, relieves tension and realigns the skeletal frame and body.
After a detailed assessment, Yasmin will identify the primary cause of the pain and perform the relevant muscle adjustments to correct the misalignment. Treatment consists of a series of muscle corrections. It is designed to improve the body's balance and posture by moving muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones.
Because it is the muscles that are manipulated to re-align the bones, the results are more effective.

can be said that there are two corrections. Firstly, the one as a

Here is just a sprinkling of the research that Liz Koch and others have uncovered regarding the importance of the psoas to our health, vitality and emotional well-being.
The Psoas muscle (pronounced so-as) is the deepest muscle of the human body affecting our structural balance, muscular integrity, flexibility, strength, range of motion, joint mobility, and organ functioning.
Growing out of both sides of the spine, the psoas spans laterally from the 12th thoracic vertebrae (T12) to each of the 5 lumbar vertebrae. From there it flows down through the abdominal core, the pelvis, to attach to the top of the femur (thigh) bone.
The Psoas is the only ?muscle? to connect the spine to the legs. It is responsible for holding us upright, and allows us to lift our legs in order to walk. A healthily functioning psoas stabilizes the spine and provides support through the trunk, forming a shelf for the vital organs of the abdominal core.
The psoas is connected to the diaphragm through connective tissue or fascia which affects both our breath and fear reflex. This is because the psoas is directly linked to the reptilian brain, the most ancient interior part of the brain stem and spinal cord. As Koch writes ?Long before the spoken word or the organizing capacity of the cortex developed, the reptilian brain, known for its survival instincts, maintained our essential core functioning.?
Koch believes that our fast paced modern lifestyle (which runs on the adrenaline of our sympathetic nervous system) chronically triggers and tightens the psoas ? making it literally ready to run or fight. The psoas helps you to spring into action ? or curl you up into a protective ball.
If we constantly contract the psoas to due to stress or tension , the muscle eventually begins to shorten leading to a host of painful conditions including low back pain, sacroiliac pain, sciatica, disc problems, spondylolysis, scoliosis, hip degeneration, knee pain, menstruation pain, infertility, and digestive problems.
A tight psoas not only creates structural problems, it constricts the organs, puts pressure on nerves, interferes with the movement of fluids, and impairs diaphragmatic breathing.
In fact, ?The psoas is so intimately involved in such basic physical and emotional reactions, that a chronically tightened psoas continually signals your body that you?re in danger, eventually exhausting the adrenal glands and depleting the immune system.?
And according to Koch, this situation is exacerbated by many things in our modern lifestyle, from car seats to constrictive clothing, from chairs to shoes that distort our posture, curtail our natural movements and further constrict our psoas.
Koch believes the first step in cultivating a healthy psoas is to release unnecessary tension. But ?to work with the psoas is not to try to control the muscle, but to cultivate the awareness necessary for sensing its messages. This involves making a conscious choice to become somatically aware.?
A relaxed psoas is the mark of play and creative expression. Instead of the contracted psoas, ready to run or fight, the relaxed and released psoas is ready instead to lengthen and open, to dance. In many yoga poses (like tree) the thighs can?t fully rotate outward unless the psoas releases. A released psoas allows the front of the thighs to lengthen and the leg to move independently from the pelvis, enhancing and deepening the lift of the entire torso and heart.
Koch believes that by cultivating a healthy psoas, we can rekindle our body?s vital energies by learning to reconnect with the life force of the universe. Within the Taoist tradition the psoas is spoken of as the seat or muscle of the soul, and surrounds the lower ?Dan tien? a major energy center of body. A flexible and strong psoas grounds us and allows subtle energies to flow through the bones, muscles and joints.
Koch writes ?The psoas, by conducting energy, grounds us to the earth, just as a grounding wire prevents shocks and eliminates static on a radio. Freed and grounded, the spine can awaken??? As gravitational flows transfer weight through bones, tissue, and muscle, into the earth, the earth rebounds, flowing back up the legs and spine, energizing, coordinating and animating posture, movement and expression. It is an uninterrupted conversation between self, earth, and cosmos.?
So, it might be worth it, next time you practice, to tune in and pay attention to what your bio-intelligent psoas has to say.
