What you'll learn from this episode:
How your body can become more receptive to the changes required to thrive even if it’s been stubbornly resistant to them—and merely surviving—for years.
How to loosen up and support your fascia, which is connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, and closes and separates muscles and other internal organs.
How to strengthen up your pelvic floor muscles, which are crucial to both preventing lower back pain and helping your sexual function.
How to practice stress hygiene so you aren't living in a state of high alert all the time.
The simple tools you can use to support your posture, whether you work a desk job, drive a cab, or sit at home on your couch watching Seinfeld reruns all day.
And much more!
