You know what’s the BEST way to avoid shoulder, neck, elbow, and wrist pain?

Awareness.

Bringing awareness to how you're holding your body is going to play a huge role in minimizing aches and pains.

When it comes to fixing shoulder pain, you can't go right to the source of it because let me tell you something friend, you will miss the bigger picture of what your body is trying to tell you.

*Yes, it’s true: everything in the body is connected!*

>>When you look at the body as a whole, you're able to see where the missing link is that caused your shoulders to be in pain.<<

It’s the best way to understand what's going on with the body and has helped so many women I worked with heal their chronic pain!

Here are some things to look for when it comes to fixing shoulder pain:

1. Posture

Think about it! If your shoulders are rounded, neck is forward, pelvis is tucked, and knees are locked it's no wonder you're experiencing pain up there! There needs to be space and length in the body for optimal function.

2. Biomechanics

Once you have your posture figured out, look at how you hold yourself as you move throughout your daily life. If you don't have the fascial tensegrity that you need to support your body, then it's going to give at some point and cause you pain.

3. As I said above, you can't just go to the source of the pain to fix the pain. When it comes to the shoulders, it's so important to have a strong mid-back connection. This can help create the support that your shoulders need to hold your upper torso while creating space through your neck.

4. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people roll their shoulders back to try to have "better" posture. By jamming your shoulders back and down, your body will want to protect itself by recoiling them forward because you are forcing them to stay in that position. I know it sounds backwards, but this will only tighten your muscles even more.

5. What makes my unique style of training so effective is that I focus on breathwork. When I first start working with a client, I notice that when they breathe in their shoulders go up to their ears. By constantly breathing like this, you're not allowing your body to figure out how to let your shoulders relax.

Once you are able to visualize your shoulders as an addition to your core, you will hold your body in a whole new way.
