Every muscle in your body works together. This seemingly small thing gives us our ability to do something simple, like picking up a book, but also absurdly difficult things like climbing Mt. Everest.
But, when a muscle or group of muscles is stressed in some way (like an injury, trying to do something that’s too difficult, or imbalanced training) it could contribute to pain or injury. And that injury can lead us down a path of hurting other muscles or muscle groups as we compensate.
This leads to our body slowly tipping itself out of balance and that’s how injuries can develop.
Sometimes we know what hurts, like our back. Other times it just feels like everything hurts, just a little bit.
What’s needed is simply to get our body back in balance. To get muscle groups relaxed and in place, so they stop pulling on other muscle groups.
This is actually what happened to Josh Warren, founder of NeuroMuscular Balancing.
He had experienced lower back pain for years and just assumed that was his lot in life.
Josh, equipped with his Master’s Degree in Exercise Science and certainty that something was, in fact, off; set forth to solve this problem and finally live a life free of everyday pain.
What Josh learned was that his body was not aligned. Just being out of balance was causing constant pain.
He also learned that putting his body back in balance wasn’t as hard as he thought it would be, it just took a mix of curiosity and commitment.
Soon, Josh wasn’t in pain anymore. Even parts of him that he thought were fine seemed to feel better.
Josh knew this was something he wanted to focus on and began his successful, and still ongoing, career in consulting and bodywork.
Josh made NeuroMuscular Balancing and changed the way many think about their body.
NeuroMuscular balancing is a mind/body, three-pronged approach of releasing, lengthening, and strengthening. Applying yoga concepts and exercises appropriately can help achieve NeuroMuscular Balancing by shortening muscles that are typically too long and lengthening muscles that are typically too short in order to bring the body towards balance. Muscles pull bones; therefore, balancing muscles also helps balance the skeletal system. A balanced body will help with performance, pain relief and overall wellness.
As a Racquet & Paddle Sports Coach, Josh quickly realized that many people were also struggling with similar imbalances.
Josh is committed to helping others find balance in their body.
