Ed is the author of Move Like an Animal: Feel Comfortable, Move Well for Life in 3 Simple Steps, Amazon Bestseller in Pain Management & Aging.
Ed lived with chronic pain and fibromyalgia in his 20's & 30's, so he appreciates the long road out and can help you shortcut your way back to feeling comfortable for life.
Ed has over 15 years of experience, helping people find natural pain relief through hands-on body work and somatics exercises which are the complete reverse to most approaches.
Essentially it's motor control exercises (MCE), mindful-based stress reduction (MBSR) and progressive relaxation all rolled into one which now the American College of Physicians (ACP) are saying is "the first thing to do relieve pain".
We use conscious gentle body movements that targets the brain’s motor cortex to reset the nervous system back to comfort and along the way you get into deeper states of relaxation.
This leads to a healthy, fully-functional body.
Muscle range of motion, recovery, relaxation and control are restored by this "alternative to exercise” approach; plus it's natural pain relief that actually works!
Learn more about this word - pandiculation - and how this is central in changing the brain and body to help you direct your "well being” toward natural healing and pain relief.
