Congratulations to my dedicated client, Chuck Chokel and his wife Naira. They both competed in the National Senior Olympic Games this past weekend in Birmingham, AL. Chuck got a podium in his age group, (which is pretty competitive, btw), making him officially an Olympic Bronze Medallist! What an amazing progression for Chuck as an athlete. So proud of you both! As the Navy SEALS say: NEVER QUIT!

A little about the art of Muscular Therapy in light of the current overwhelming scourge of addiction... The art of Muscular Therapy may not appear to be necessary to those who don't understand the essential nature of it's value. Over time, the rich history of our practices became more vague as a result of society's increasing disparity with it's own intrinsic power of intelligence and proprioception. Many have relinquished their self-awareness and proprioceptive powers in favor of the easier, more disenfranchising route: reliance upon the extrinsic, pharmaceutical and mechanical processes. The art of healing touch helps us to disentangle and recenter ourselves. Muscular Therapy promotes a renewal in our own organic strength and proprioceptive intelligence. Practitioners of our art are generally very humble people. Because we've devoted our lives to such a precious and sensitive service, we understand the true power born of our humility and our endearing patience. We have always believed that the success and spread of our shared professional wisdom is eventual with continued and compassionate focus. Dr. Tiffany Fields, whom I had the distinct honor of interacting with, created the only Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami. It's sponsored by Johnson and Johnson. For those of you interested in how the art of touch can scientifically help you rediscover, develop new tolerances and renew your innate power of healthy, proprioceptive living, please visit the website at http://www6.miami.edu/touch-research/research.html If you find something of value at the website, I implore you to copy the research article of your interest and pass it along to someone in need. We dedicated therapists just love the challenge of helping to lift the desperate from their frustration and despair. Thanks for lending a compassionate moment of your time for a heartfelt read...Steph
The Touch Research Institute has conducted over 100 studies on the positive effects of massage therapy on many functions and medical conditions in many different age groups. Among the significant research findings are enhanced growth (e.g. in preterm infants), diminished pain (e.g. fibromyalgia), de...

Put a HIIT on yourself! That stands for High Intensity Interval Training. In the fitness industry, it's always been well known that HIIT achieves more results. But if you're a nit-picker like me, here is the science behind it all. The BEST part of HIIT is that you only need to exercise for fewer than 5 minutes per day! Now if you can afford that kind of time, have a full time job out of the house, kids, distractions and all of that, I'm certain you can afford to give yourself at least 10 minutes per day, that's splits of morning/evening, to help yourself out. If you're working at home (desk-bound), a stay at home Mom, or a shut-in with partial mobility, three times per day is NOT impossible. Of course, remember, HIIT targets metabolic systems. For hypertrophy, muscle building, good old resistance training should still be on your plate. But with HIIT, increased endurance levels are achieved. This will also enhance your resistance training and ultilization of key nutrients to help produce hypertrophy, muscle growth. It will also help convert excess ingested proteins (common with weight training) into good beige or brown fats, instead of settling into triglyceride-creating white fats! Time for me to go out and put a HIIT on someone! :) As always, any questions, feel free to contact me. Have a healthy day! Steph
New research reveals that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) increases glucose metabolism in muscles as well as insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes. After just a two-week training period, the glucose uptake in thigh muscles returned to a normal level.

Nutrition Alert: Recently, a client came in telling me he was having leg cramping. He was adament that he wasn't going to stop eating his two to three bananas every day! I had to explain that bananas are loaded with potassium, which is good, btw. But our cells, under a microscope, look similar to a little fried egg. There's the outer "white" and there's a "yolk", essentially, a circle within a circle to put it very plainly. There is a functioning gate in the cell known as the sodium/potassium gate. Overloading on potassium makes the gate stay open to long leading to dehydration of the cell, overdosing on sodium makes the gate close too long leading to inflammation or bloating of the cell. Result: upset of essential electrolytes leading to erratic neuro-muscular behavior. It's critical for us to maintain balance in our nutrients and not succumb to food addictions or overeating which will completely overtax and upset our metabolic functioning. There's so much to choose from! Also, remember that our receptors will attract glucose/sugars first before other nutrients leaving us to excrete other good things we may be ingesting at the same time. When making a protein shake, try not to make it a smoothie with fruit, as your receptors will go for the sugars first, proteins dead last. Fruits and other carbs are great after aerobic (cardio) as that promotes greater ATP production for the next day's anaerobic (weight) workout. Muscles need clean proteins to help manufacture and heal after anaerobic (weight) workout. Best ingested in no less than 15 minutes. Smoothies=carbs=cardio=increased ATP (energy source) Proteins=Amino Acids=Resistance Training=Recovery Any questions? I'm here for you! Have a healthy day! Steph
