ARE YOUR LUNGS CAUSING YOUR SYMPTOMS?
Updated: Jan 11
You've tried getting a massage, heat, physical therapy, chiropractor but nothing has helped your symptoms.
You still suffer with difficulty breathing, upper back or rib stiffness, limited shoulder or neck motion, rib dysfunction, TMJ, dysfunctional breathing pattern, or more.
You're frustrated, overwhelmed, and still in pain.
You wish you had someone there to help support, and guide you.
This is where I come in.
I listen to your body, and use an integrative approach to facilitate healing from the root cause of dysfunction in your physical, emotional, and energetic body.
Your bodies listening may take me directly or indirectly to your lungs. Where I will listen more in depth, assess, and release restrictions allowing your body to relax, self-correct, and free itself of pain, stress, and dysfunction.
WHY YOUR LUNGS MIGHT PLAY A ROLE IN YOUR PAIN OR SYMPTOMS?
The lungs pull air into our body and provide oxygen to our blood and release carbon dioxide as waste. The lungs are our first defense against pollutants in the air.
The lungs are susceptible to loss of normal movement and function when tension or restrictions arise.
WHY MIGHT YOUR LUNGS LOSE MOVEMENT OR FUNCTION?
Injury or trauma from a contact sport, car accident, or puncture wound
Pressure changes in the body
Infections in the chest, colds, throat infections from a bacteria, fungus, or a virus
Restrictions in and around other organs
Digestive system disorders
Pollutants from smoking or inhaling chemicals
Emotional or Energetic Restrictions:
Lack of self-confidence
Fear of confrontation
Fear of being dominated, suffocated, or drowning
Aggressiveness or hostility
SYMTPOMS THAT MAY IMPROVE WITH TREATMENT:
Coughing or sneezing
Voice changes or crackling
Pain with breathing
Back ache between the shoulder blades
Neck pain and stiffness
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Lack of energy
Blueish-gray tinge to the skin
