From the Heart

We are officially into 2017. As a world, and a nation so many changes and shifts upon us. If we take a step back and examine social media posts, conversations among friends, teachers and even strangers, common threads emerge. Heaviness, fear, the unknown, and questioning arise. Maybe some of it has to do with the time of year, since even here is San Diego it has been greyer and wetter . 

How does this all relate to wellness, physical therapy and health? Because this doubt, uncertainty and negativity can feed into our current mental state which will also effect our physical state. No one is impervious to this. So, what can we do?

Let go. Let go of the need to control. Surrender to the fact that what happens beyond us, is part of us yes, but we are not always in charge. What we can control are our thoughts. It is these daily thoughts that build over time taking us to the next step on our journey. These thoughts effect how we feel, how we move, how we hold ourselves, the space we take up (or don't) in the world. 

Sometimes it takes an outside perspective to get us out of our heads, and point out a new way of moving or thinking. This is true for myself as well. I seek out helpers and have a community to guide me to live from the heart. Step into your journey with confidence, with hope, with happiness and freedom of movement.

One:One sessions

A session at Ignite is very different then the traditional PT setting. You will never be handed off to an aid or assistant, or left alone while I check on another patient. Each session is customized to your needs, whether it's an evaluation unraveling the root cause of your discomfort, bodywork, Yoga or essential oils.
