The SKIN


[mobility]

When you think of mobility you think of your joints and muscles but not often do we consider the skin in terms of movement. The skin is the largest organ in the body and it has the capacity to move apart similar to muscles and fascia. –

If you have a formation of scars and injuries this will also impact the amount of mobility skin has. WHY⁉️ the scars protective response is to pull things together resulting in tighter skin.

How high heels affect the body: 


A women’s body will attempt to compensate for the off kilter balance heels cause by flexing or forward bending the hips and spine. 

To maintain balance the calf, hip and back muscles become tense. This makes for excess muscle fatigue and strain. 

Over a period of time, wearing high heels can also cause the calf muscle to cramp and bulge. 

Spine don’t?


Wheels need to be aligned, not our spines 😊We don’t need spinal manipulations to “re-align” the spine.

The spine is strong and robust, vertebrae don’t just pop out of place.

We don’t have to fear our back and think that the back is vulnerable and needs to be protected. 

Our body is designed to move, also our spine! 😊
