Thank you to all who joined me for our class on Self-Care for Lateral Hip Pain!
Here is what we learned:
~ Reduce the inflammation in the body (methods discussed)
~ Evaluate your life. What is in balance? What is out of balance?
~ Commune with your pain
~ Reflexology for hips, lower back, sacral region
~ Reflexology for the spine
~ Reflexology for the adrenal glands
The origin of lateral hip pain varies, but the area of the pain remains the same. Certain health care plans and doctors are resistant to scheduling an MRI, which leaves the person somewhat in limbo, especially if there is a desire to know where the pain is exactly emanating from. It has been my recent experience that my intense lateral pain was “unknown—could be a few things” and to take prescription medicine so many times a day. David R. Hawkins wrote, “One gives away their power to the pill, the power that is really of one’s consciousness.” I have been working with pain for a long time and have discovered that holistic methods have proven more beneficial. In this class, we will explore self-care tools and mindful techniques to help us tap into where the pain may be coming from and address some of the possible origins of the discomfort. Every self-care tool will be non-invasive, gentle, and without contraindications.
As always, I speak from my experience: what I have learned from my own body and insights I have gained from working with clients. I am not a doctor and do not dispense medical advice. Nor do I diagnose, prognose, or prescribe. The holistic tools taught are not substitutes for medical care. Consult your physician in all matters regarding your health.
