Do I need Restorative Exercise?

Ask yourself these questions:

Am I in pain and frustrated that I’m not getting better?
Do activities such as sitting, standing, moving and exercising create more pain?
Have I become dependant on my health care practitioners, such as my chiropractor for symptom relief?
Do I want tools so I can fix myself?
Do I want to learn how I can stay healthy and fit without compromising the health of my spine and joints?

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, well then I can help you!

jessica-riley-rhomboids-pushupsRestorative Exercise (also known as Nutritional Movement) literally saved my spine. About four years ago, I was experiencing low back pain that was unrelenting. Everything hurt from picking up my daughter to laying on my bed. I tried everything from chiropractic, Bowen, yoga, massage, meditation to praying to God to help me!. Literally, it just kept getting worse and worse.

As many of us do when we are desperate, I started researching. I found the Restorative Exercise Institute (now the Nutritious Movement center) online and knew immediately I found something special (thank you Google Gods).  Within days of incorporating the corrective exercises and making changes in the way I stand and move, I was experiencing less pain. Within weeks I was out of pain and could comfortably pick up my daughter.  The education I received taught me that I WAS THE ROOT OF MY OWN BACK PROBLEMS and how to FIX ME.

I was so transformed and inspirited by my experience that I decided to become a Restorative Exercise Specialist. I actually believe my back pain was the teacher that acted as a catalyst for me to find this work. Just another reminder that pain offers us a chance to grow.  One of the biggest light bulbs that I see go off in people is the same “Ah ha” I had;  that we are a bit blind to how much modern living affects our wellbeing. A lot of the things that cause our issues are actually a function of HOW WE LIVE. And we can do something about it. Nothing like having the power to transform your own body.

The RE system is based on human biomechanics and utilizes a 25 point alignment system that was developed by Katy Bowman, MS of the Nutritious Movement Center in Sequim, Washington. Biomechanics, a marriage of physics and mathematics applied to human movement and the anatomy and physiology of the body. It has not historically been a heavily studied field, except in sports (think golf). Thankfully, Katy has been able to bridge a gap on connecting how our health on a cellular level is affected by everyday human movement.

“Better than 90% of the energy output of the brain is used relating to the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism and healing.”
