Sound is the medicine of the future – Edgar Cayce

June 8th, 2011, 7 pm. 

Stay Tuned Therapeutics at 403 West Birch St., in Flagstaff, AZ, will be hosting a gong meditation for athletes on June 8th, 2011, at the clinic. Chris Thornley will be releasing the vibrations from his 36 inch Paiste Symphonic Gong upon the recipients mind, body and spirit.  Many who have witnessed this presentation come away with a feeling of grounding, peace, tranquility and clarity.  On an athletes path to events, many times there are feelings of frustration in training, diet, mission.  Set your mind at ease with fellow ultra athlete, Chris Thornley as he allows the energies of these questions come to the surface, be present, and pass.

Immerse yourself in sound with the healing vibrations of the elemental energy of OM. The Gong Meditation will both calm and inspire your spirit. The vibrations can help balance and cleanse the energy in your body. They work at a cellular level and can help with stress, fatigue, depression, anger, and blocked energy.

To Register for this Free event call Stay Tuned Therapeutics at 928-699-1999 or e mail staytunedaz@gmail.com.

Free the Foot, Pt 2

Bones

Boney Anatomy

Pt. 1 The technician grasps the ankle gently, inferior to the medial and lateral malleoli, tib/fib.  Applying a gentle squeeze will suffice in creating distraction of the tib/fib away from the talus.  Lifting the leg off the table, the clinician gently “whips” the foot to and fro, mobilizing the foot from the leg, via ankle movement.  As the foot is thrown away from and drawn near to the clinician, balance of supination/pronation in the calcaneus and talus may be achieved.

PT. 2. The Tarsal-metatarsal joint is the target of this hands on mobilization technique.  The technician drapes their up body hand around the arch of the foot, isolating down on the cuboid and cuneiforms.  The down body hand grasps each distal head of the metatarsals 1-5.  While holding steady the arch against the technician’s body with up body hand, the down body hand rocks, rotates and distracts each tarsal-metatarsal joint, restoring movement in this very important, first line of defense, spring mechanism.
