Highlights from today's episode include:
Fascia is, to me, it's like saran wrap around every single structure in the body. You can think of it around every single muscle fiber, every single muscle, every single bone, every single organ, it's even around all your arteries. So, it's everywhere. And then if you think of the fascia as saran wrap, which is pretty easy to, it's fragile. And if you can think of 100 different spider webs all intertwined, wrapping around every single tissue in your body, and then you yank on one end of it, because you broke your ankle when you were 18. Or you had a bad concussion when you were 12. Playing hockey or, there's a million ways to create tension in the body at any age.
So how does hydration fit with all of that, it's going to move better, the better your fluids that are movement moving. I to be honest, think more about the fluidic body. I don't really think about it as hydration as I do, how your lymphatic system is working, how all the fluids in your body are working together. And we're taught that emotions are held in that fluid.
There's another layer, when I think about fluids, is I want to see that whole fluidic body. I mean, fluids are everywhere in our body. And we are taught with our hands to feel where they're not moving well. So, to get them moving better in a person can be so rewarding for you as the practitioner and the person because it's just a level that maybe they haven't been treated on. And for a lot of people, they can get a lot of success through that.
About Kate Redford
I have been helping people heal from pain for the last 20 years. My mission is to empower people to heal themselves. The body is always going toward health. Learning how to best support this process for each individual is my passion. After graduating with a Kinesiology degree I became a Rehab Personal Trainer. Then I became a Registered Massage Therapist and later I went back to school for 6 years part time to be an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner. I also am a Holistic Nutritionist. Most recently I have become a Jack Canfield Train The Trainer Coach. I love learning and I am always curious! I imagine never retiring because my job is so rewarding and challenging!
Core purpose / passion: My purpose is to give and receive love and connect to the oneness of all living things. I am here to make the world a better place. I am here to be an example to my kids. I am here to shine my light bright so that I bring light to darkness in myself and others.
To do this I practice radical self care. Being in nature makes me feel alive and inspired! I LOVE exercising in nature in any weather! My core’s purpose and passion in my business life is to empower people to heal themselves. That is why I have transitioned part of my business to coaching people to live a pain free life. I love the hands-on treatment but the patient is lying down and I am guiding the healing. I am excited about coaching people how to do the healing themselves by self reflective exercises and taking action!
