365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 242: First ELDOA lecture under my belt

Pic before lecture

I took this pick just before the lecture. It was a great night at the Vancouver Pilates Centre: 35 people attended my presentation and some stayed for the demo ELDOA class.

One person came to thank me at the end, saying that finally she understood what fascia is. Another person wanted to tell me that now she knows that she can heal and does not feel desperate for a solution anymore.

Quite a few of the attendees are considering signing up for the ELDOA 1 course in July.

My first official ELDOA lecture was a great success!

I am grateful.

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 240: Taking ELDOA to Vancouver

ELDOA in Vancouver

Look what greeted me yesterday on a large blackboard at Vancouver Pilates Center. This is where I came 18 years ago to learn about Classical Pilates and healing the body through movement.

It is such an honor to spend two days here doing a lecture on ELDOA, teaching ELDOA classes and working with clients one on one.

My lecture tonight is entitled “THE SOLUTION FOR THE BACK PAIN  EPIDEMIC” and precedes the ELDOA 1 Course that I will be teaching here in July.

I am excited!

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 239: ELDOA

possible

Given the current “chronic” back pain epidemic, what is the REAL power of ELDOA?

ELDOA helps the body reinvent itself healthier and healthier every year.

ELDOA creates space in the joints of the body. It fights gravity.

Are you doing ELDOA yet?

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 238: Tired Of Neck Pain?

neck pain

Are you suffering from constant neck pain? I am talking about pain that turned chronic.

This is the ugly truth of why you are still suffering: there is a vicious cycle that creates pain in your body. You CAN heal, but with so much conflicting advice about what it takes to become pain free, it’s hard to know where to start and sometimes you end up doing things that will hinder your healing process.

Many people get overwhelmed and eventually give up. They give up believing that they can heal. It doesn’t have to be that way! I want to show what you can do in order to start healing. My clients are consistently amazed at how I find the right solutions for them and help them heal.

If you suffer from chronic pain and you’re ready to heal once and for all, click here: http://bit.ly/bodystrategy.

Here’s the deal: when it comes to healing your body one size DOES NOT fit all. This is why I want to talk with you directly and show you what the best steps are FOR YOU.

My proven method for healing chronic pain is simple, efficient and easy to follow. But it does not work for everyone, because not everyone has what it takes to follow through.

Your healing is YOUR responsibility.

It takes a special person with a “do whatever it takes” attitude to really get results. Let’s face it, realigning and healing your body will take SOME effort on your part. That requires commitment and if you’re committed I’d love to help you!

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 235: Fighting Gravity

spine

Our spines are subjected to the effects of gravity every day. Poor posture, misalignment and the presence of injuries create imbalances that combined with the force of gravity increase the deterioration of the spine.

ELDOA, developed by the renowned French osteopath Guy Voyer DO fights the effects of gravity by creating space in the joints of the spine. This revolutionary method for realigning, strengthening and healing the spine has helped thousands and thousands of people.

Everybody needs ELDOA in order to maintain a healthy, strong spine.

Practiced regularly and under expert supervision, these exercises restore alignment and functionality; they improve your health, your posture, your mind set and your energy levels.

If you want to know more about ELDOA, email info@mitreawellness.com.

Tomorrow I will include a list of practitioners who teach this wonderful method. Maybe one of them is in your area.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 234: So What Can ELDOA Do For You?

pain free

This is what my client Mehran says about his experience with ELDOA:

“Having endured two shoulder surgeries in ’97 & ‘2001, and consequentially dealing with chronic neck pain since 2005, I pursued various modalities to bring my physical issues under control.  Having realized a minimum level of comfort and desperate to achieve a level of stability where I could function as normal as possible, I was introduced to Rucsandra’s ELDOA classes by my Osteopath.  As soon as I took my first class I felt that this makes sense; and in a shockingly short period of time, I started achieving amazing results.  It is really unfortunate that our GPs are not aware of this.  I highly recommend trying ELDOA before making any drastic decisions in your physical well being as I believe it truly reverses the aging process when it comes to pain.”

OK, here we go! This is what ELDOA can do for you and more:

  • Experience pain relief and heal your spine
  • Increase the intervertebral spaces, so that the pressure on your discs is relieved
  • Recover from injuries and prevent future pain and discomfort
  • Reduce acute or chronic pain due to spinal disc bulging or herniation
  • Find relief from referred pain in your legs and arms, tingling in your hands and feet
  • Eliminate long term tightness and discomfort
  • Reduce the effects of scoliosis, arthritis and many other conditions
  • Improve your posture
  • Strengthen your spine
  • Get rid of back pain, neck pain, stiffness and discomfort
  • Prevent ostearthritis in your spine, shoulders and hips
  • Improve your spine’s flexibility, strength and overall health
  • Preserve the health of your spinal discs and prevent future discomfort-producing conditions
  • Increase your muscle tone and awareness
  • Keep your spine a lot younger than your calendar years

Worth taking a look, don’t you think?

More tomorrow.

Keep sharing.

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 233: The Epidemic Of Back Pain

back pain

Yes, an EPIDEMIC!

Here’s a little excerpt from a paper entitled “Low Back Pain” written by Béatrice Duthey, Ph.D for the World Health Organization (WHO) on March 15th, 2013:

“As part of the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD) 2010, Expert Group showed that low back pain is among the top ten high burden diseases and injuries, with an average number of DALYs (disability-adjusted life years) higher than HIV, road injuries, tuberculosis, lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary Disease and preterm birth complications.”

This study talks about low back pain, but there is also middle back pain, upper back pain and neck pain. The study says:

“Estimating the incidence of low back pain is difficult as the incidence of first-ever episodes of low back pain is already high by early adulthood and symptoms tend to recur over time. The lifetime prevalence of non-specific (common) low back pain is estimated at 60–70% in industrialized countries (one-year prevalence 15–45%, adult incidence 5% per year). The prevalence rate for children and adolescents approaches that seen in adults. It then increases and peaks between ages 35 and 55.”

60-70%????

The prevalence rate for children and adolescents approaches that seen in adults. It then increases and peaks between ages 35 and 55.

This is crazy!

And completely unnecessary!

Especially when there is something we can all do to prevent back pain, to not suffer, to heal and move on with our lives.

What can we do?

ELDOA!
