Self Massage

Much of what I do is self-massage:  It eases the pain.  Massaging, stretching, building muscle, all to music that inspires & relieves stress.

The touch transfers energy.  We are electrical creatures.

Thought is another form of energy.  Music is another.  We are capable of consciously directing our unconscious to self -heal by transferring energy to our cells.

Musical vibrations are a little higher vibration than we, as matter.  But not so much higher to be harmful to tissues –unlike x-rays, microwaves, MRI’s.

When massaging to music the notes pass thru me to me.

I become a conduit for the music, using my consciously directed thoughts & touch, and invite my unconscious to participate in the healing.

The following is a You-Tube video by a massage therapist on self-massage, and the dangers of over-stretching.

Titled “Hidden Yoga Dangers.”


I have sciatica, which starts in my spine, moves through my buttocks, down the back of my leg, to my feet.  This first short shows me attending to my calf.  

I play it like a piano to Einaudi’s music. 

This next one minute video shows a little of me on my yellow, grooved roller.  

It Hurts. But in a Good Way.


 Moving & stretching& rolling around on the floor are forms of massage. 




Innovation. What is it?

I think of something new, like an invention. Or, another way of seeing something. Something about it that was never before. From where? An inspiration? An idea? An accident? A necessity?

Creativity enters when that inspiration, idea, accident, necessity is put into practical, demonstrable terms. This is where it is valuable to be a conscious human capable of that particular manifestation in physical, emotional, spiritual terms. This innovation can be expressed many ways.

Opening ourselves up to inspiration is what I advocate. To enlarge our capacity as humans, as individuals. I think moving to certain music can stimulate that flow of energy to expand one’s mind. You can direct, attract ideas in a particular genre—like music, art, dance, social change, scientific inventions. Like a moving, directed meditation. Just ask the question. You may get an answer, a hint, a beginning. Or not. :)

The Mystery.

The Mystery.

You could just end up with a better physical form and more endorphins swimming through you. But, “it’s not in the destination, but in the journey.” That travel trip to outer or inner space.

Self Trigger-Point Release

Trigger-Point Release is the idea of finding knots in your muscles and pressing on them until they release.  This a major cause of muscle pain.  And it also increases your flexibility & protects your ligaments.  It is advised to do trigger point and massage release before stretching and working out.

 I roll on rollers and tennis balls. It gives you that “hurts so good” kind of pain.  Add a little music to it and you’ve got a symphony.

Here is a wonderful diagram of our body’s trigger points referred to me by a new internet friend, Chispa Loro.
