The brain is an instrument to use and tap into in order to change the signal of pain.
Certain movements or exercises which target the brain. Help heal issues in the tissues such as back pain, stiffness and stress.
Movements systems such as somatics exercises. Targets the brain’s sensory-motor cortex and nervous system. This changes tension levels so the body feels more in control and comfortable.
According to Norman Doidge author of The Brain that Changes Itself. “Easy, gentle movements gives the brain and the body the health we desire”.
The ability to heal can begin when we have a conscious thought. About the quality and nature of movement itself.
The intention of how you move, activates the brain’s cortex.
This type of brain-body exercise is where you closely observe. Or use your awareness.
To either feel or see what happens in your body as a result of following your intention to move.
Lessen stiffness and improve flexibility with the brain
Brain fitness is all the rage using computers or software. Yet the brain software you have can be molded with easy, simple movements.
This affects the movement system of muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, bones. The fascia and the conductor of the information; the nervous system.
Using the little known process of a pandiculation. The brain can reprogram how the muscles and movement system functions. It does this by changing tension levels back to comfort.
This key is important so you can regain cortical control. This helps to resolve back pain, lessen stiffness, and improve flexibility for starters.
Stress lessens with practice. Your brain gets better so you can recover faster.
Often, I call our approach un-exercise. Since it is the complete reverse to most exercise programs out there.
You see you can target the brain’s motor cortex. Instead of the cerebellum which is what many physical exercises focus upon.
This cortically brain based system rewires the nervous system. That way you can confidently sense and feel your way to wake-up both the brain and body to healthy living.
See, this stems from using your intention. By paying attention to your intention during a movement pattern.
This is important.
The intention to move itself is significant and is an integral part of getting the brain to change the body. This gives you the ability to use your intelligence and the power of your brain to feel different.
Brain exercise is the difference in brain power
The brain thrives on novelty. Somatics exercises uses gentle differentiating movement patterns. This wakes up the brain (and nervous system) which improves the body.
This allows the brain to regenerate itself. And facilitates greater mobility, flexibility and awareness in everyday life.
Signals of pain and pleasure are generating from the brain.
When you live with pain, it's as if the brain has gone haywire.
So it is vital to continue to work with your brain and body. To maintain better function and return to comfort once the brain no longer is in haywire mode.
