Maybe this sounds familiar:
**Though you can handle a lot, and possibly have been through a lot and come out on top, you find that over time your body is holding onto stress and it is harder to let it go. You know that fear, pressure, or say, challenging personal relationships, effects how you feel, yet you still feel it in your body. You may sense you you protect yourself from old hurts or compensate from old injuries. You may done personal growth work, yet your body still holds old wounds.
**You can concentrate so hard and lose track of your physical well-being, whether caring for others, focused on a project, on the computer for long hours, or busy with appointments. While you want to care for yourself, and you know it is important to listen to your body, you sometimes need support. It can be hard to pay attention what’s around you, and also attend to your own needs.
**You feel like your body is somehow compensating or off-balance, or you just don’t feel the same flexibility or ease, and you wonder what to do about it. You may notice that certain movements on one side of your body feel different than the other. You may feel like you have to be very careful reaching in certain directions. Or, you may do sports or yoga and notice that you have challenges with certain postures and wonder why. Though you want to feel better, you are realizing that you need to find a new way to address aches and pains that are starting to become chronic.
**You believe in holistic care and the mind/body connection, and you have done things like yoga, massage, healthy eating, therapy, personal growth work, and yet there are still challenges you face.
