Watch Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 22 Head Over High Heels Online

Owen tries NET - On Grey's Anatomy!
If you haven't heard yet, Grey's Anatomy recently had an episode that showed Owen getting NET on national TV! The episode aired April 18and was titled "Head over high heels" (Season 15, Episode 22).

Here are the NET parts (link is below):
10:28-11:45 Owen talks skeptically to the therapist
18:17-19:16 The therapist explains being stuck in a pattern
22:28-24:37 Start of NET session
26:07-28:14 Original event at 10 & making NEC correction
39:49-40:20 End of show. Owen texts it was a hard but good day.

This is HUGE for an alternative technique such as NET to get such accurate and positive exposure as this. And from what I could tell, the treatment was performed correctly!

If this makes you curious about how NET (Neuroemotional Technique) can help you:

A middle age female academic presents with chronic low
back pains. Her movement patterns reveal poor hip hinge and squat mechanics. Her lumbar paraspinals are hypertonic and inhibit her Glutes. Interestingly, she exhibits a ligament stretch response, suggestive of adrenal fatigue. Using Applied Kinesiology muscle testing protocols, I correlated this to active adrenal nerve root reflexes and not surprisingly also to T10 (the nerve supply to the adrenals is in this region).
To treat, I adjusted her hips and low back, Applied myofascial Decompression (cupping) to her lumbar paraspinals, and Rocktaped them. This allowed the Glutes to reinervate. I reviewed proper hip hinging and squatting movement patterns with her and suggested that she decrease her coffee intake, which is excessive. She also tested positively for an endocrine supplement support.
A wholistic treatment entails the Triad of Health: structure, chemistry & emotion. Sometimes the patient isn’t ready to hear that much information or to make that many changes. We need to meet them where they are.

Just returned from Benbow where I spent the day with #calesar and hundreds of other SAR volunteers. The two girls were found, healthy and back home. They were missing since Friday afternoon. I’m exhausted! Left Berkeley 4am and just returned 12 hours later. It feels good to help others in need, even if not directly, but as part of a larger organizational process.

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE? Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel , has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital. Please share this with your friends. It could save a life!

A 60 year old female presents with chronic right shoulder pains ever since a fall several months ago.
Testing reveals a right grade 4/5 anterior, posterior and middle Deltoid. The ipsilateral Upper Trap is hypertonic and inhibits the posterior Deltoid. The Rt AC & SC joints are subluxated, along with grade 4/5 Pec Minor and Subclavius muscles. These are found to inhibit the Middle and Anterior Deltoids.
Adjusted the AC and SC joints.
Myofascial Decompression to the Upper Traps. Rockfloss to the upper shoulder region. Rocktape for general shoulder support.
Now all muscles are interacting correctly.

The Neuroscience of Breaking Habits: Why It's So Hard and How to Do It

Yes, there is a science behind breaking a habit. It doesn’t have to be your will only. The science of behavioral change has come a long way. We now know how to reprogram our brains so we can succeed at breaking habits (and forming good ones).

Busy weekend with the arts: Friday #EltonJohn, Saturday Paradise Square #berkeleyrep and Sunday #stlawrencestringquartet at Bing Concert Hall, Stanford. The soul needs feeding too!

[01/15/19]   For the first time on record the odds of accidentally dying from an opioid overdose in the United States are now greater than those of dying in an automobile accident.

And a large number of these victims started out like you and me, just looking for some pain relief and trusting their doctor to write them a safe prescription. Why does it have to come to this? And when will natural health care become the norm and not the alternative?

Innate Chiropractic is in da house at #otfsolanoalbany

The patient is an ultra runner in her mid 30s who presents with chronic right lateral hip pain only felt on sit to stand transitions but not while running long distances. History of major left ankle sprain and foot fracture, both necessitating surgical repair. No success with several chiropractic and physical therapy interventions.

Right Adductor inhibits bilateral Gluteus Medius, right Internal Obliques and lower lumbar Multifidus.
Right L5 facet Imbrication.

Contracted right sacral and lumbar ligaments. Inhibited left Flexor Hallicus Longus and Valgus Hallux (Bunion). The Flexor Hallicus is a major muscle in the foot that propels you forward. It is a lot larger and stronger than one would think.

Adjusted L5 facet.
Rocktaped Fl Hallicus and Hallux into neutral position. #holistichealth #foundationtraining #physicaltherapy #selfcare #rocktape #myofascialdecompression #neuroemotionaltechnique #chiropractor #massage #chiropractic #appliedkinesiology #Neurokinetictherapy #holistic #activereleasetechniques #massagetherapy #faktr #neurokinetictherapy #activereleasetechnique #sacrooccipitaltechnique
