Having retired as an English Professor in California, I arrived in Texas at the height of a 35-year pain syndrome. With no new alternatives to try, I finally found the Egoscue Clinic in Austin. A year later, so inspired by my pain free body, I became the northern Texas affiliate to serve the Metroplex area. I continue to work out with this method and teach anyone how to achieve functional fitness. Egoscue becomes one’s Life Style Manager to become and remain pain free. The method offers a thorough going, total-body, structural and muscular support system for the entire spine and the load bearing joints. By reclaiming straight posture and the vital S-curve, chronic pain is replaced by a pain free body filled with dynamic tension and strength. Because of the miracle of this method, I am able to resume my favorite activities of gardening, entertaining, writing, and trampolining. I also assist my husband in his JB Photoshooter home studio, lending an artistic touch to his talent.
The Egoscue Method is the leader in functional fitness. In that muscles move bones, we aim to place muscles in their proper positions. 1. Using our Patch system, we work with children to provide total muscular movement done in a creative, fun environment. 2. Athletes profit from Egoscue movement menus, which allow them to achieve maximum output through overall body strength and balance. Whether a baseball player, golfer, or runner, each learns how to get major and minor muscle groups to function as a unit. The results allow the body to drop any rotations, rounded shoulders, duck feet, internal/external knees, or elevated shoulder/hip. The body thus functions as a machine, and what was once elusive excellence is reached. 3. Those who have been in chronic pain finally find the relief they have sought. This method simply works by demystifying the cause of various pains and by clients doing stretches and positions to eliminate lifelong compensations and original dysfunction.
I am the recommended Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex Egoscue affiliate on www.egoscue.com. The Posture Studio of McKinney is in the category of health and fitness, but is unique in its approach to postural health. While compatible with fitness, Yoga or Pilates instructors, alternative health practitioners, and chiropractors, my emphasis is on MUSCLES. I teach self-recovery from pain or injury by designing "e-cise menus" done alone at home or in the office. The client returns to the Posture Studio every two weeks after muscle positions begin to change. This pattern repeats itself over 12 to 16 weeks as eight menus are accomplished. In most cases, the client is more than ready to resume full activities and have his or her life back. Maintenance menus and online menus can assure a life without any more pain and prevention of injury.The Egoscue Method can be the last stop for anyone suffering from chronic pain. Why not make it your first stop to express a significant presence and vitality?
Yes, I have done some local networking and find Allen/Mckinney Netweavers to be an extremely dynamic group. I look forward to many one to one opportunities to meet fellow networkers.
