Running Log Testimonial
November 17th, 2012 Atlas Balanced
Felt how my atlas was misplaced and after I felt that it was now properly seated and aligned.
Felt energy moving up and down my spine, especially during the grounding phase.
Felt energy gently moving into the head.
My neck pain is gone.
My head moves easily forward and backward without pain. It moves side to side with full range so I can now look over my shoulder without strain or pain or locking up.
November 18th (next morning)
Getting up onto my feet felt so different; more solid. My sway back was gone; I stood straighter.
As I walked down to my friend's house, I felt regal and my friend noticed me coming down. She said I just glided.
My shoulders are now naturally pulled back with my chest area more open and raised.
I am sitting with a straight back rather than hunched over or slumped in the chair. In fact if I unconsciously hunch, within seconds I feel the discomfort and I straighten up.
I used to feel pain in my lower spine when I took a large step down a level but now there is no jarring or nerve pain.
I can now raise myself up from a crunch or squat without any assistance of a chair or other surface. I have more strength in my legs.
Noticed that I can now sleep on my stomach without lower back pain. I also noticed that I can lie and read on my stomach without getting sore shoulders and neck.
I am eating less.
My abs are easier to kick in naturally.
My pelvic floor muscles seem stronger.
My upper back pain is beginning to subside as I sit without back support on the floor.
My hip pain is gone.
I can sit cross-legged in meditation a lot longer.
I can stand on 1 leg without wavering.
I noticed that the cranial nerve behind my right ear is no longer sore and sensitive. I had acupuncture there in 2006 for Bell's Palsy and the pain never went away.
My slight Bell's Palsy droop on the right side is now gone.
My headaches and neck pain have not returned.
I developed a condition 6 months ago which made one of my fingers go yellow, cold and numb. This showed itself every few days or so. That has not been the case since my Atlas Balancing session.
I have been doing some gardening, bending over with weeding and my back has quickly recovered from the sustained postures almost instantaneously. It is almost as if the muscles are springing back into neutral position without any residual strain.
December 29th (6 weeks on)
All of the previous benefits have continued to this point. Although I am experiencing a bit of discomfort in my muscles in my upper shoulders, I understand this is due to the body still unwinding from its long kept posture and finding its new position.
I have now noticed that my life-long body-temperature control problem is changing for the better. Normally, I cannot handle any heat as my body could not throw it off very easily. Most of the times, it ended with a migraine for days. Lately in the NZ summer, I am keeping cooler naturally and not getting heat prostration anymore. My endocrine system seems to be evening out and working much better. I have gained weight however and hopefully this is a temporary event and will also become more balanced.
January 16th, 2013
My discomfort in my upper shoulders is now gone. I have decided to increase my high water content foods to offset the weight gain for now. I am no longer continuing to gain weight. I am also feeling very grounded however more emotional. That could be due to my recent move to Christchurch where there is deep trauma due to the past two years earthquakes.
I have just come back from from doing a 28-day Deepening intensive in India. Throughout the program exercises and different living conditions, the body has easily adapted without any strains apart from some sciatica from improper seating posture. Once I corrected this, the body easily handled all the physical demands required of it. I was surprised by the ongoing increase of strength and stamina. I also did not get any headaches even though the combination of exercise and high temperatures was constant.
