This is why so many athletes have hamstring problems

October 24, 2010

Have you ever heard anyone say “I have really tight hamstrings?”. Maybe you’ve said that. And these folks usually go the stretching route, they stretch and stretch and stretch and yet their hamstrings stay tight and never loosen up. Why? Because stretching is not addressing the core reason why their hamstrings feel so tight. Muscles don’t just tighten up for no reason, they don’t wake up one day and decide “you know what? Let’s tighten up to really tick this guy off.” No, instead what is usually happening is that the bones the muscles attach to are out of position and that is making it impossible for the muscles to return to their normal resting length and tension. They always feel like a rubber band being pulled taught because that is essentially what is happening.

one of my favorite quotes

October 17, 2010

first, sorry for the delay in updating this place. We were in Houston last week doing a travel clinic and those weeks are always nuts.

Anyway, I’m back in Austin and have some cool stuff to share with you. But first, I wanted to share one of my favorite quotes of all time. Are you doing this? Are you playing small? Step into who you are and what you can REALLY do. Greatness is inside all of us. And yes, that includes YOU!

************

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

We’re coming to Houston!

October 4, 2010

We do a travel clinic to Houston every other month. What’s a travel clinic? Basically, we haul a bunch of our equipment down and setup in a hotel conference room and do the same therapy there we do at our Austin clinic.

So, if you live in the Houston area and you are in pain, or if you know someone who is, this is a great opportunity to get therapy without having to get on the road to come see us in Austin. We’re going to be there next week, Wednesday through Friday, 10/13-10/15. Last I checked we only had 5 spaces available, so if you’re interested, call us asap at 512-527-0030.

Hope to see you there!
