About me

Pain is why I live! I manipulate pain in a way that allows you to let go of what's holding you back. One day not long ago, I overworked my self in improper body movements lifting heavy objects and bending down for half the time; and all of a sudden, I couldn't walk! Healed itself in 3 days I rose again. at the onset I was barely able to lift myself, I couldn't even lift the keys up, it was excruciatingly painful, I had to be carried. Over the weekend I did very little to fix it, though I spent much time putting pressure on those seemingly nothings. I discovered within my own pain, a way back out from it. It's been 10 years in the field, and I've finally injured myself enough to know how to help lift others back to living and moving a normal life. Facebook messenger me at m.me/massageswithmiguel

Another thing to consider, fascia connecting and dividing muscles within the arm, also attached to nerves bone and, at times fascia can gather up, as for carpal tunnel, at the wrists or back of the elbow, causing compensations within the body that shorten the distance and hinder mobility between the wrists, elbows, and shoulders/neck. The tension within the arm now becomes greater then the opposing arm causing compensations along the spine. Sometimes affecting muscles between the shoulder blades and the spine affecting the soft and bony tissues surrounding the nerves that control the arms, down the hip and either IT band and its opposing knee, in a crisscross pattern down the body. In the same crisscross pattern down the body that I find the attention gathers in, the opposite side of the affected wrist up the neck, same side of carpal tunnel in muscles at attached to the bottom of the skull, and tension at the points above the make of the neck at the back of the skull. The imbalances, are what the body protects so as to not allow you to pool a nerve further than the gathered tensions in the whole body allow. Ridding the body of tension at any and as many of these points with a tennis ball or a trigger point ball(not the spiky one) can reduce one's own compensations and help to regain proper balance in the tension that hold our nervous system in alignment for optimal utilization. The key here is not to focus on the points of pain, rather at times the opposite sides that are causing the nerve to be pulled away from the spine and central nervous system. The second key to your success using this format, is to breathe, not to hold in or out of breath, and to force on the exhale, thus hindering the body's natural response to hold and protect in the comfort zone where pain is harbored. Each one of these points has multiple inflammed and tightened muscle fibers, get rid of as much tension from each one of these points using the exhale and the ball along with being able to lay down on the floor while you work on these points will allow you to focus on releasing tension throughout your body, as I've learned the body has one giant nerve and the less that every muscle tenses up on that nerve, and if you only focus attention on the exhale, it will allow the body to send the chemicals naturally produced by the body to reduce swelling, inflammation, tension, pain, and helping in removing toxins in the body as a whole, also the painful tense area being worked on, focused on, using the exhale will beging to have some changes in pain sensation.

Structured water I think is best. There are ways of making it yourself and plenty of demonstrative videos online. One company that I know did the research, and incorporated what is known about the properties and physics of water, is Crystal Blue Water Structuring Unit. There are no filters or screens, only a concept and understanding of water as living. Not sure of the process, but tests and individual research shows the results. Everything flourishes better with structured water. I believe there may be some cavitation going on where the molecules implode on themselves and release whatever frequency it was holding, but I truly wouldn't know. Some people do some additional filtration before processing the water through the watering unit, but I feel the same effects just using structured water alone.
