Mel Collie | Ever massaged your Diaphragm?
Todays Neuro Kinetic Therapy special was a curious one, but as I have learned with this technique, I go with what the body tells me.
I was going to do some work on the right foot , but as the diaphragm was flaring and something my client had mentioned in our chat at the beginning of the session, I tested the diaphragm against the abdominals and her glutes as she has a tucked under pelvis and shortened space between lower rib and hip bone, slight kyphosis and altered neck position…(I will ask you questions later..:) )
I found a facilitated spot on the diaphragm, a bit tender, and when I theory localised it, the glutes switched on, as did her core muscles, which meant that when we tested the core muscles, there was no visible shaking in the upper neck, and no jaw clenching.
The diaphragm can be a compensator for so many things…
It may seem too simple for you as a client to do breathing homework (what you don’t get 100 sit ups and press ups? !!…umm…nope…) ..but breathing is the most repetitive movement you will do each and every day, and I guess you’ve been doing those reps for quite a while now…
