The Key To A Pain Free Lifestyle
Are You In Balance?
It's a funny thing what happens when your awareness gets opened up. You begin to see things that you never saw before. Little things, that normally would never have been within the scope of what you look for, suddenly appear to you very visibly.
In the arena of health care, or, of taking care of one's self; balance is the key. So in order to maintain your health, you must discover whether or not you are in balance.
There are several levels or areas of imbalance that can occur. Factors can include heredity, ignorance, high or low impact incidents or accidents, and simple lack of care. There are also imbalances that occur from deficiencies, such as spiritual deficiencies, energetic deficiencies, or nutritional deficiencies.
Patterns of Imbalance
As a massage therapist who is very passionate about what I do; I have begun to see patterns. I work on people on a daily basis and I see the imbalances. Not only do I see the imbalances, but I also see a lot of the causes.
So I've decided that I'm going to start writing a series on imbalances and how to correct them. Actually, I had already begun the series. I was just unaware that it was the series I was writing. I wrote several articles attempting to explain certain aspects of this idea.
- Treat Frozen Shoulder Naturally

There are other articles on emotional and spiritual imbalances as well, but I'm now focused more on a combination of these that specifically result in physical pain.
Living With Pain
The primary reason that I started writing these articles and, the reason I want to do this series is because of pain. I treat so many people that are living with pain on a daily basis. I live with pain on a daily basis.
I think in some ways, this is both a blessing and a curse; because living with pain pushes me to try to find ways to fix pain problems. My ultimate goal is to make you more aware of your body and how it functions so that you can better manage your body and thereby better manage your pain problem.
The reason we all need to understand ourselves more is that most pain is self inflicted. Therefore, it stands to reason that if a person understands the cause of their pain; they at least have a chance to correct the problem. Hopefully, they'd be inclined to take the proper steps to correct that which is wrong.
As I said before, new awareness really opens up your world. As a way of example, I've discovered in treating the clients that I have the privilege to work on; that a lot of the pain problems people have stem from their feet, and/or misalignment problems.
So yesterday, I took my son to Walmart to take advantage of tax free day, and buy his school clothes. After we had concluded our shopping, we stopped in the Subway that is in the Walmart store.
I sent my son, with his bags of clothes; to the car to lock them in. While he was gone I was sitting in the Subway, exhausted. I had just finished working a shift when I had picked him up to take him shopping.
I still have my work clothes on, and suddenly the therapist in me came out. While sitting there watching the people go by that were entering and exiting the store; I started paying attention to their feet and bodies. I observed their gait, and began to silently call out their misalignments.

Just from watching them walk by me; I could see where their problems were. I could tell who was right handed or left handed due to how they were walking. I could tell if they had a significantly shorter leg, or if their hips were out of alignment. I could even tell who was flat footed; and who had too high of an arch in their feet, with their weight rolling to the outside or lateral side of their feet.
I only know this because my awareness has opened up, due to paying attention to the pain patterns of my clients. And as I learn, I like to educate you, my readers; so that hopefully you'll see what you need to do, and make changes to help your body better cope with the imbalances that cause pain.
Journey of Discovery
There are so many things bubbling around in my brain, and I'm taking notes so I can remember all the topics I want to write on as they come to me. Additionally, I want to be sure I can deliver these ideas in a way that is clear and easy to understand. I will be listing the additions to the series here at the bottom of this article, so if you decide to follow along, you'll be able to check back on this article to see if there is some new article that perhaps you missed. Hopefully, you'll come along on this journey of discovery with me. Blessings.
