Martial Arts Exercise Fixes Spine!
One of the exercises I do
that has the most effect
and keeps me in tip top condition
is a swimming type of exercise.
I have used it to fix sciatica
(pain down the rear of the leg)
and several other things that happen to a body
as it gets older.
this is one of those Neutronic healing exercises
that I should have put in the book,
The exercise goes like this.
Stand with your feet just beyond shoulder width apart.
Clasp your hands together above your head,
pointing towards the sky.
lean to the left as you turn the body to the left.
Let the body bend slightly as you do this.
Then lean to the right as you turn the body to the right,
and repeat, repeat, repeat.
It is a swimming motion.
The reason I started doing this
was because I had a spot on my spine that hurt.
Chiropractor used to hit it with a little ‘thumper gun’
He would pull the trigger on this little gizmo,
and a small rod would hit my spine.
What it did was impact upon the nerve,
the nerve would curl reflexively,
pull the muscle,
and the bones would align.
The trick is to exercise enough
and in the right way
so that the bones don’t go out in the first place.
Hard thing in the martial arts,
we have so much flex and impact
that bones sometimes go out.
So instead of paying to have the chiro thump me,
I figured out this exercise.
I matrixed the potential motions of the spine,
then figured it out.
When I first started doing this exercise
I heard a lot ‘crack!’
I felt the spot on my back that hurt
and there was no pain.
The bone had easily and simply re-aligned.
So I stand and ‘swim straight up’
in the beginning,
let the body be loose and flexible,
feel the swimming motion
travel from the knees through the hips and up the back.
After a few minutes,
hold the hips still.
Do the swimming motion just from the low back up.
after a few minutes,
hold the lower back still,
and just swim the upper back.
Then hold the whole back still
and swim with the shoulder.
just swim the head.
what you are doing is
rotating and turning each bone of the spine
in all three dimensions.
This works all the muscles surrounding or adhering to the bone.
And the spine says, ‘Ahhhh!’
the spine is the major tree trunk
from which the body grows outward.
To have a healthy body
one needs to exercise the trunk.
Not just the punch and the kick
of fist and foot,
but the meaty and weighty trunk
behind it all.
Take a look at some of the more esoteric martial arts,
tai chi and pa kua specifically,
and you will see a lot of attention
on ‘snaking’ the spine the right way.
This exercise I give you here,
is a lot more efficient,
and you can do it with any martial art.
This exercise will fix
among other things,
knees, hips, spine.
The knees can often hurt
because the alignment is off
because of the spine.
The hips can hurt,
or contribute to pain
because they don’t rotate properly
because of the spine.
So things like sciatica,
sacro illiac slip,
and all sorts of other things
can be fixed by this simple exercise.
‘Swimming Straight Up.’
play with it,
If you have a real problem that needs help from a doctor
get a copy of ‘Neutronic Healing.’
The funny thing is
I didn’t put a lot of exercises in the book,
just a few,
but the theory is what you want.
and a few things like what you read here,
things based on matrixing principles,
and you can make your own exercises.
if you go slow
and have the right data,
you can fix anything.
Here’s the URL for the book.
It’s an 80 page download
that will change the way you think about healing
and the human body
and life itself.
you guys and gals
have a happy and HEALTHY work out.
