Eliminate the root cause of many painful conditions with this easy to follow plan from neuromuscular therapist, yoga instructor and pain specialist Lee Albert, who teaches five simple exercises to correct muscle imbalance, based upon 30 years of working with clients. “3 Steps of Pain Free Living” airs on Monday, June 1 at 8:30 p.m.
Albert also shares a gentle breathing exercise that has been shown to slow down the “fight or flight” (stress response) in as little as ten minutes. He demonstrates how altering our breathing pattern makes it possible to reduce stress and add more calmness to our lives. The breathing practice will often improve sleep and has been shown to boost the immune system and help with many chronic conditions. And it’s so easy it can even be done in bed.
According to a recent Institute of Medicine Report, Relieving Pain in America, pain is a significant public health problem that costs society at least $560-$635 billion annually. The human body possesses an astonishing capacity to heal itself, but it needs our help and cooperation to be able to do that. Learning how the body works can unlock simple ways to lessen pain and stress while adding more happiness and calmness.
