What you do between appointments matters. Especially if what you’re experiencing in your body has built up over many hours or days, weeks, months and even years.

also known as Pandiculation or Pendotion™ – I tend to assign closed chain exercises in which we use our own body weight and resistance for strengthening. This means we are stretching our anatomical limits in a supported and proportionate way.
Sometimes I incorporate my favourite self massage tools – the Acuball and Acuball Mini (www.Acuball.com) into homecare. These were developed by a chiropractor friend of mine (Dr. Michael Cohen) and they changed my life so much that I never leave home without them. I teach people how to use them for self-massage and I also incorporate them in treatments if called for. I usually have a few on hand for purchase (instructional DVD included).
Some people like using squash or la crosse balls. I do not recommend tennis balls as they break too easily under body weight.
