Ed lived with chronic pain and fibromyalgia in his 20's & 30's. So he appreciates the long road out. He can help shortcut the way back to feeling comfortable for life.
Ed has over 20 years of experience, helping people find natural pain relief with somatics exercises which are the complete reverse to most approaches. We use conscious gentle body movements that targets the brain’s motor cortex. This resets the nervous system, and provides deeper states of relaxation which leads to a healthy, fully-functional body.
In an nutshell. It's (sensory) motor control exercises/movement (MCE). Mindful-based stress reduction (MBSR). And progressive relaxation all rolled into one. Where now the American College of Physicians (ACP) are saying is "the first thing to do relieve pain".
Muscle lengthening, recovery, relaxation and neuro-muscular control are restored by this "alternative to exercise” approach. Plus, it's natural pain relief that actually works!
See how it works.
