MELTed Self-Care Challenge Day 8: Hip to Heel Press (Hamstrings)
Snap a pic of the Hip to Heel Press from the lower body length sequence or your favorite hamstring stretch!
I love the length moves, this tensional pull, is another way to drive fluid throughout the connective tissue system. It frees up my legs and hips more than stretching the muscles alone! Remember to keep the pelvis in a slight tilt to gain the two directional pull within this back line! Happy Hamstrings!
The hamstrings tend to have a lot of restriction, because daily life involves so much sitting. If we compress the connective tissue of our hamstrings for too long, it can become dry and brittle and lose it’s extensibility, which contributes to low back, hip and knee pain.
The hip to heel press is a fast, easy way to juice up the tissue all the way from the foot to hip, which will improve hip mobility and decrease lower body tension and pain. What’s your favorite way to free up the hamstrings?

Today my cells are radiating with the truth of the following words . . .
“When someone tells you, “I love you,” and then you feel, “Oh, I must be worthy after all,” that’s an illusion. That’s not true. Or someone says, “I hate you,” and you think, “Oh, God, I knew it; I’m not very worthy,” that’s not true either. Neither one of these thoughts hold any intrinsic reality. They are an overlay. When someone says, “I love you,” he is telling you about himself, not you. When someone says, “I hate you,” she is telling you about herself, not you. World views are self views—literally”

Are sleepless nights your norm? Find yourself flipping through TV channels watching infomercials at 3AM feeling plain frustrated? Are your days filled with endless coffee + RedBull (insert stimulant of choice)? Maybe you've even been down the Western route with...
