Strength and Structure with Pete Egoscue, courtesy of Tony Robbins!

June 30, 2010

Some of you know who Tony Robbins is. At our clinic, we’re all big fans of Tony’s work. He’s one of the premier life coaches in the world today. In fact, looking back at how Theresa and I ended up in Austin owning and operating the first licensed clinic in the Egoscue system, I can safely say that I’m not sure we’d be here today doing what we’re doing were it not for Tony Robbins and his technology and strategies.

In any event, Tony is both a personal friend of Pete Egoscue and a big fan of Egoscue principles and technology. Here is a video from Tony’s website that has a short intro by Pete himself and then two of our therapists taking you through some simple exercises that will remind your body where it is designed to be. If you’re currently a client, you’ll enjoy this video. If you’re new to Egoscue and wondering what it’s all about, try these exercises and let us know how you feel!

One note: if any of these exercises cause any pain, skip that exercise and move on to the next one. And that then becomes a clue for you. Your body should be easily able to do ALL of these exercises. If there’s one that is more difficult than another, or if you feel like one side of your body is working harder than the other in a given ecise, those too are clues that your body is out of balance.

The foundation of health is balance, and the foundation of strength and structure is postural balance. Get your introduction to this concept right here:

BP is burning sea turtles alive

June 26, 2010

Folks, please read the information below and I would encourage all to sign on to the petition.


Subject: Re: BP is burning endangered sea turtles alive

Dear Friend,

News has just emerged from the Gulf Coast that BP is burning endangered sea turtles alive.

A boat captain who has been leading efforts to rescue the endangered turtles says BP has blocked his crews from entering the areas where the animals are trapped, effectively shutting down the rescue operation.

BP is using “controlled burns” to contain the oil spill. Shrimp boats create a corral of oil by dragging together fire-resistant booms and then lighting the enclosed “burn box” on fire. If turtles are not removed from the area before the fire is lit, they are literally burned alive.

I just signed a petition telling BP to stop burning endangered sea turtles alive. To learn more and take action, click on the link below.

Testimonial from a client with knee pain

June 25, 2010

Bethany posted this comment on my Facebook page. She’s a great young woman who has a knee with an interesting history. Long story short, she’s had several botched surgeries that has left her knee in a mess of a state and she is in no hurry to get another one. So she and I started working together awhile back and she did well, but then life happened. She has a stressful full time job and is going to school, so time is a premium for her. But she decided she had better make room for Egoscue if she wanted to get her knee back to being able to do the things she wants it to do. So she came back in and it was great to see her again. We focused on improving the position of the knee and getting her muscles working properly, and here’s the result!

After one session with Rick (following a 6 month absence due to an insane work schedule) I have felt such improvement!!! I love how quickly Egoscue works! This stuff is amazing! I’m so glad to be back on the road to a pain free life that still allows me to be active and young!!! Seven total surgeries won’t hold me down and the ones “they” want to do won’t be needed if I keep headed in this direction! 🙂

Keep on rockin’, Bethany, and thanks for sharing!

Migraine testimonial

June 24, 2010

I made a new friend down in Houston a few weeks ago, a man named Gabe. Gabe came in and was looking for help with his migraines, and as “luck” would have it, had one starting up as we began working together. You can read his testimonial below. He posted it on Facebook and I thought it was too good not to share. Great guy, and I’m very happy for him that he’s finding a way out of the pain by restoring his body back to a position of balance!


how convenient! I had my first Egoscue session to see about a plan to reduce my migraines, and I get a freak’n migraine just before my session. by the time we started, I considered abandoning because of the pain. Rick had me do 4 Egoscue exercises that weren’t comfortable, but within 10 minutes my headache went from euphoric to complete alleviated.
feels like I regressed in age 10yrs from one egoscue session. it was uncomfortable, challenging, and awkward for me, and it requires repetitive, daily, exercise to facilitate progressive function, but I’m tired of pills and shortcuts that only address the symptoms. Life is to long not to live to our optimal potential. damn I feel good.
