Physical therapies

Physical movement is essential to the human being, just like breathing and nutrition.

The physical body is specially designed to be dynamic, active, to explore the physical world that man inhabits and to permanently maintain its tone and balance.

Modern civilization has determined an increase in the degree of sedentarism, through all the facilities offered: cars, airplanes, computers, televisions, etc. – which involve spending more than 60%-70% of the day in a sitting position.

Îin this context, physical therapies become more important than ever, especially in the healing efforts of people with important health problems. But not only.

There are two important types of Physical Therapies:

  1. physical therapies carried out by therapists – for example massage, reflexology, acupressure, Bowtech (Bowen therapy), osteopathy, chiropractic and many others. In these therapies, the patient is only a passive receiver, and all the effort falls on the therapist. The patient’s responsibility is only to be present in the same room as the therapist.
    They are useful therapies in certain periods of treatment, but they cannot replace “more active” therapies, which involve more participation sea of the sick person.
  2. physical therapies performed by the patient alone – after it is learned and becomes responsible for their current application.
    Among these we mention: DO-IN, Alexander therapy, Feldenkreis therapy, the various Yoga asanas, the multiple existing breathing techniques, physical exercises such as Tai-chi, Qi-gong, Sundao, or the more ”contemporary” such as aerobics, Pilates, etc.

We will be discussing easy, personalized DO-IN options on our site, which is about teaching and empowering people to know, respect and help their bodies heal.< /p>

And we will teach notions of Being Energy, which is a technique of gymnastic movements, combined with breathing techniques and mental relaxation, very useful for bringing a surplus of energy into daily life, as often as needed.

Being Energy

Motion for energy recovery

Being Energy Technique, taught by Aerin Alexander and Miles Reid (, former students and apprentices of Carlos Castaneda – is a technique of using physical movements to rebalance the body’s energy levels.
Îduring our lives, we block significant amounts of energy îin areas of the body that we use very little, such as the back of the feet , the back, the back of the neck, the soles of the feet, etc.
Moving certain regions of the body, awareness of the presence of energy stagnation (through the pain that occurs during certain movements or even the impossibility of performing certain movements) – it helps us to gradually recover our stagnant energy and use it more effectively in our daily life.

The Being Energy technique is like cleaning all the things in the house, discovering a lot of objects, clothes and things collected, stacked, good and useful, but unused. As if we re-discover ourselves among the resources we had, but not using them, we live with the feeling that we don’t have them. And we are still looking outside for the “treasure” which we always carry with us.

There are multiple series of movements, from simple to very complex.
Each of these series is learned through repetition and use at any time during the day, as needed.
They are movements for certain parts of the body, for example the sole of the foot, as well as movements for the whole body, which also involve breathing.

We will describe some interesting exercises, which can be easily tried at home or at work.

Exercise 1 – The energy storage on the sole of the foot
It seems that we store a lot of energy in the sole, at the base of the toes, in the “pads” which we step on when we stand up on the heels.
The exercise starts in the standing position, standing firmly on the sole of the right foot, and with the left foot we sit on the heels. rf, trying to feel only the ”cushion” from the base of the thumb – which we press strongly into the ground. We will all find intense pain at that level. Next, we move the pressure to the pad at the base of the 2nd toe, then from the 3rd toe, the toe 4 and finger 5 – the smaller one, pressing it well into the ground. Then in reverse order, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1. We will do this route 3-5 times from the thumb – towards the little finger, pressing it firmly into the ground. You will find a great sensation of release and relief in the sole after performing this simple exercise.
You will repeat the exercise a similar number of times with the toes of the right foot.

Exercise 2 – ankle release
With your left foot on top, pressing into the ground, you will rotate your left ankle inward 3-5 times and then outward outside, also 3-5 times.
Repeat the same with the right leg.
A lot of energy stagnates in the joints of the legs.

Exercise 3 – ankle release 2
Standing on the right leg (if standing) raise the left leg slightly and rotate the left ankle inwards a few times, then outwards a few times ;teva times.
If you are sitting in a chair, simply raise your left knee a little and do the same movements.
Repeat the same number of times with your right leg.
These are recommended movements for those who sit for a long time, who travel long distances by plane or car.
