One thing after another and I never got around to posting yesterday’s treatment. Pictured here is a passive back of thigh shear to create a fluid exchange at thighs and into the lower back. My back is quite sore today from the labored nature of trying to get around right now!
Thank God for MELT! You can read the rest of my treatment therapy over at www.thedancingsoul.com/blog
(for IG there is a live link in my bio)
Catching up on
Day 2 of #INSPIREDYOGIS is #UTTHANPRISTHASANA – #lizardpose with any bind . . . LOL doing anything with this boot is a challenge … it is incredibly heavy!
I’ve realized how important my practice is for healing! When I’m feeling super frustrated because I can’t dance, do simple things, or I have to ask for help again, I remind myself there is a transformation happening here, to relax, and just be where you are right now. I come back to my breath, the present moment and ask, “What is it you are teaching me.?” Yoga is so much more than a physical practice, and it is helping quiet me enough to ask “how will I be different from this experience?”
“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past, or a pioneer of the future.” Deepak Chopra.

More Healing with MELT and Aromatherapy!
Pictured here is the Calf Glide and Shear
on my hard working right leg! It was simply yummy!!!!
Included a Full Hand treatment as well as a Soft Ball Foot (one foot of course).
I did a little super super light Friction Melting today on my injured foot while on the bed with the large soft ball. I wanted to stimulate the superficial layer of connective tissue and the lymph system, and it helped to relieve the stagnant feeling in my foot.
I added Lower Body Length to this map as well. I just prop up with pillows to protect my ankle.
Finally, I finished with a Rebalance/Upper Body Length, and a lovely Neck Release Sequence.
I received some great recommendations on using essential oils to heal bone and tissues from some pretty awesome ladies!!
I started with some Helichrysum and Cypress pictured here … great for breaking up coagulated blood, aids in bone and tissue repair, cypress is said to be a great oil for moving fluids in the body. I’ll include more info about the oils I’m using tomorrow.
I use a carrier oil of coconut all over the area, and then I put a few drops of each oil into my palm and rubbed my hands together and into the area. I covered it with my ace bandage and let it go to work!
I’ll report tomorrow as I’m doing a Hot Aromatherapy Treatment on my ankle tonight before bed. I’ll include the link to the video I found . . .
Lastly, this picture stood out to me today.
When I removed my boot and bandage before treatment, there was a red knot on the top of my foot. It was sensitive, but it didn’t hurt or anything. You see here that after MELTing it subsided quite a bit! Strange and cool!
Happy Healing !
Love and Light,
