Two years ago I decided I needed to make myself take a vacation. I bought into Diamond Resorts to cause me to do just that and two years later - I still have not gone... I called to set up the vacation that came with my package - planning on going in January only to find out if I didn't go in July - I would loose my free trip to Hawaii - which was the incentive to buy... So - I'm off to Hawaii July 29-Aug 8. I am also going to support Nathan Piper as he again goes to Las Vegas to compete in the Run for a Million reining horse competition. 15 top riders will compete for the prize. So I'll be gone from Aug 18-21 for that. And I signed up to take Bemer to the Tulsa Reining Horse show back in January... which I have now backed down from the full 12 days that is runs to only manning the booth the last 4 days. So August is going to be a very busy month. Please book early as there will only be so many days. I apologize for being gone so much in such a short time period but life sometimes rolls like that. This past weekend I attended John Barnes's Cervical Thoracic Course - which was wonderful and with the Bemer Meeting this coming weekend I had backed out of the other two courses he is having while he is here but - alas - He is allowing me to go for part as it is a repeat so along with presenting in Dallas Friday night and Saturday - I'll be attending the Fascial Cranium Course Friday till 4 and Sunday all day. I look forward to incorporating the refinements in techniques that always comes with attending class.
I am working on doing videos - I finally have figured out how to make the videos - now I've got to sort out how to get them into a format you can access. My first one will be on posture. - so be on the look out. I believe I'll be able to put them on my website and just announce they are up in this newsletter.
It sure is HOT out - I hope you enjoy your summer - I know mine is flying by! Please Pray for Rain - We need it badly. I wish you each health and happiness and look forward to seeing you on my table when you need me.
One last caveat - if you can notice anyplace in your motion where it is not free/fluid/smooth - that is a perfect place to pay attention to. I see so many people pushing into end range of motion thinking that is where the gold is at to improve their motion. I instead think you will gain more ground by finding what is free and fluid no matter how small it is and then expand what is free. Most joint have flexion and extension and rotation and some have lateral motion as well. Think of gaining freedom in one plane of motion then incorporating another plane. Go slower than you think possible and you might be surprised what shows up. MFR principle than adds in an elongation component to that and then you really start to change.
PS - The BEMER RAAM team did it again - they broke their own world record! BEMER improved performance and recovery in the real world - it'll work for you too! I know it helps keep me going and yes- I'll be taking it with me to Hawaii, Las Vegas and of course to Tulsa.
