BPTPortrait SMLI am a physical therapist with broad experience in both chronic and acute pain and injury treatment.  With a background in psychology I went on to study physical therapy in search for answers to my own chronic pain. This search has led me to studying all aspects of pain and injury. From the science of pain and neurology, to the hands on skills of massage and physical therapy, to the intricacies of human movement and movement restoration.

Bubbling in the Irish Yoga and Pilates circles is a new buzz word, Somatics. Over the last few years it's popularity has grown as people discover the transformational benefits of this practice.

I guess many of you may have never heard of it before so I plan to give you some background to the practice, my own personal journey and some information about how it can benefit you. Somatic Movement Education comes from Dr. Thomas Hanna, a philosopher and movement educator who further developed the work of Moshe Feldenkrais. He designing his own system of body awareness based movements which are highly effective in relieving chronic pain & stress, improving bodily function and recovery from musculoskeletal conditions.

massageMassage Therapy can help with Anxiety, which like depression, can be a debilitating condition that is little understood by those close to us. We all experience anxiety in life, but for those with anxiety disorders the anxious feelings never go away and may continue to get worse over time. This constant anxiety eventually begins to interfere with work, school, relationships and even our ability to perform basic activities of daily living.

jetlagapps com timezone clocks shutterstock 24754498 72dpi komprimiertAs exciting as long-haul holidays can be, they have one significant downside – jetlag. People are affected in different ways, but it's almost always more than a simple spot of tiredness. Often our bodies don't know what's hit them. Jet-lag disrupts the body on a major scale, causing fatigue and digestive upsets, memory lapses, nausea, insomnia, swelling, irritability and lethargy – known under the umbrella term, 'time zone change syndrome'.

Baby-MassagenThe dynamic of parent-infant interaction is the most important foundation upon which a child learns about the self, and about trust and respect. It is this first relationship that influences the way relationships are perceived. Infant massage is a natural way that parents can learn about parenting, and that infants can learn about being loved and honored.
Infant Massage is a vital, dynamic interaction that forms the foundation of relationship building that will last a lifetime. Nurturing touch between a parent/caregiver and an infant enriches physiological, social-emotional, and mind/body/spirit connections for the infant being massaged, as well as for the parent. Being touched and caressed, being massaged, is food for the infant, food as necessary as minerals, vitamins and proteins.

488562113 XSThere's a lot of hype out there when it comes to what to eat. Being environmentally conscious with our food choices seems to be the "in" thing right now. Farm-raised fish, hormone-free beef, free range chicken, farm-to-table and vegan restaurants, organic, gluten-free, macrobiotic—the list goes on! Many people often mistake a vegan diet for being the same as a yogic or yoga diet. But what does it actually mean? What is a yogic diet?

life1. Contemplate. Meditation quiets a busy mind and cultivates a witness who can watch what's happening in your life with a bit of emotional distance. The benefits are enormous - many meditators say they have more clarity, experience less anxiety, and feel better physically. Most of all, the practice offers an experience of calm and contentment. Find a comfortable seated position. Bring yourself to the present moment by breathing, relaxing, feeling, watching, and allowing any thoughts, emotions, or physical sensations to come and go. Instead of reacting to those things, simply be aware of them. Deepen the breath. Watch the breath. Let go of all technique and come into effortless being.

1312946603332248614In 30 years of teaching, I can't even begin to relate how many times I've heard people say that they can't do yoga because they're not flexible. Similarly, I wish I had a dollar for all the times I've heard a longtime student declare himself/herself to be "just" a beginner because in all these years he/she has never touched toes in a forward bend or done Upward Bow with straight arms. A few days ago I read a blog lamenting the yoga cultural emphasis on "advanced" poses and how all the social media photos of yoga practitioners in these poses is likely scaring people away from practice. This is probably true, and certainly a valid concern.

teacherSo you're thinking about doing a yoga teacher training — great! Now you just have to buckle down and commit. Here are some great reasons why:
1. You're ready for change. You will not be the same person after you graduate. Trainings ignite change in a person's life, and not always in ways you expect or anticipate.
2. You want to deepen your practice. Look, you're not going to walk away from your training knowing everything. It's impossible to crush it in 200 hours. But if you're ready to dig deeper into anatomy and philosophy and learn more about how your body works—do it.
3. You're looking to make some of the best friends you've made since college or high school. These folks will watch you grow and change and before you know it, they will become family.

We can try to painstakingly hack away at the problem or deprive ourselves, but old behaviors are relentless – and they often come back to haunt us.

Working so much, it's normal that most of us experience that mid-afternoon slump when our blood sugar drops and a nap would come in handy. Too many of us head to the vending machine or to Starbucks, when a little yoga would instead stave off those sugary cravings and boost energy levels.

springcleanbodySpring is here! Yes!
Except for the fact that many people don't feel so hot this time of year. The flu is - knock on wood - mostly behind us. Allergies have not quite exploded yet. So, why do so many of us feel off in the early days of spring? You can kindly thank your Liver! In acupuncture theory, humans are viewed as microcosms of the natural world that surrounds them. Seasons - particularly the transitional periods, when we move from one season to the next - factor significantly into how we feel. Each season is linked with an organ system in the body, and spring's system is Liver.

635903728850127570-2076758665 16561-alone-at-the-beach-1920x1200-photography-wallpaperI started meditating soon after 9/11. I was living in Manhattan, an already chaotic place, at an extremely chaotic time. I realized I had no control over my external environment. But the one place I did have a say over was my mind, through meditation. When I started meditating, I did not realize it would also make me healthier, happier, and more successful. Having witnessed the benefits, I devoted my PhD research at Stanford to studying the impact of meditation. I saw people from diverse backgrounds from college students to combat veterans benefit. In the last 10 years, hundreds of studies have been released. Here are 20 scientifically-validated reasons you might want to get on the bandwagon today:

There are many articles out there, from the religious approach to the scientific one, all agreeing that, yes, meditation can in fact bring up positive changes to a persons life. In other words, its good for you. Knowing that neurosciences and psychology reinforce ideas such as the "Relaxation Response", and Mindfulness seemly being the word of the last few decades among those of us seeking for quality of life, the underlying questions is: why doesn't everybody meditate?

What does the word 'yoga' mean to you? Perhaps you associate it with an Indian mystic sitting in a trance high in the Himalayas, or with seemingly impossible contortions of the body. But, in fact, throughout the world millions of ordinary men and women have transformed their lives with the practice of this ancient science. Yoga is a system of postures, special breathing techniques and relaxation which act together to harmonize all aspects of the individual. It originated in India some 5,000 years ago and in our century a few forward thinking yoga masters have revised these teachings into the form we know today, making the benefits available to all humanity regardless of race, religion, nationality, occupation or age.
