A Joint Pain Relief Success Story, From Dorothy:

"I want to thank you for giving me my life back pain free. I have had chronic neck and upper back pain for almost 10 years. I have tried everything to no avail. I was doing research to help a friend with Achilles pain and found your website. I just started today with your neck pain videos and can tell already I am on my way to being pain free. Just the small amount I have done so far has reduced my pain dramatically. Thank you again. I will recommend your website to everyone I know. Thank you."  Dorothy, United States

You can do it too!

The Big Secret About Releasing Tight Tissue

If we put you under full-body anesthesia……like they would when you have surgery……then every single tight muscle in your body would become as loose and limp as a rag-doll. Every muscle would simply let go……ask any surgeon and they'll confirm this fact.

And here's the important part……when the anesthesia wore off, ALL the tension in your muscles would return to where it was before they knocked you out.

So it follows that your tissue is tight because of the tension settings for your tissue in your brain……specifically the settings in your cerebellum that get shut off under anesthesia.

Thus, the big secret when it comes to releasing the tight tissue that is causing your joint pain - We have to work with the tissue in a way that communicates effectively with your brain so it will change the tension settings for the tissue……or else we're just wasting our time. Joint pain relief requires techniques that effectively communicate with your cerrebellum.

What follows are the techniques that DO communicate effectively with your brain to change your tissue tension settings. They provide the joint pain relief you are seeking by freeing the tension in your tissue that is compressing or pulling inappropriately on the joint.

Technique 1: Press-Pull-Release



Basically, you need to release the tight tissue that is compressing or inappropriately pulling on a joint in order provide the joint pain relief you're seeking.

To find the inappropriately tight tissue, we need to find the "tender tissue" because tender tissue is tight tissue. Always remember, healthy tissue is not tender (painful) when you press on it. But, as you just read above, we have to get your cerebellum......located way up on the top your brain stem......to release the tight tissue, since it's the "control box" we need to communicate with.

One way to do this is as follows:
PRESS on the tender tissue
While still pressing on the tender spot……
PULL on the tissue like you were trying to stretch it about one half of an inch, like a piece of plastic wrap, or a piece of clay
Then RELEASE the tissue
Lastly, REPEAT the Press-Pull-Release on that same tender spot 5, 10, 15 times as the tissue gradually releases bit by bit.

As you repeat, repeat, repeat, try pulling in different directions and notice what seems to have the best effect. Sometimes up and down is good, sometimes going across the tissue seems work best, other times down to up works too. Try them all and go with what seems to be working.

One entire Press-Pull-Release sequence should take about 1 full second, which you then REPEAT until the tissue lets go.

This is NOT massaging your tissue, where you slide across the surface of the skin. When you slide across the tissue it doesn't communicate with your cerebellum the way the Press-Pull-Release-Repeat does. The sensors in your tissue best communicate to your brain with the Press-Pull-Release technique done in about one full second, repeated numerous times on the same spot. And the most important part of the technique to remember to repeat, repeat, repeat!

After over 20,000 bodies in my professional practice, the Press-Pull-Release technique works better for joint pain relief than anything else I've tried, and I've tried everything out there.

Technique 2: Press-Hold-Move



Just like the first technique, the Press-Hold-Move Technique is another way to maximize the communication to your cerebellum. This causes the tender (tight) tissue to release and allows the joint pain relief you are seeking to occur.

With this technique you PRESS, then HOLD steady pressure on the spot you are on, and then make the muscle you are pressing on MOVE by moving your body in a way that makes that muscle do its job. And then......repeat, repeat, repeat!

You can also think of this as the Press-Hold-"Make it Move" Technique.

The way to do this is as follows:
PRESS on the tender tissue
HOLD firmly on that one spot
While still pressing on the tender tissue,"make it move," i.e. MOVE your body in a way that causes that muscle tissue you are pressing on to work a bit .
If you can keep the pressure constant, REPEAT the MOVE motion while you press.
If you have to stop for a second and start over that is fine too. Just keep flexing and relaxing the muscle while you apply constant pressure.
Then move to another nearby tender spot and repeat the entire process again.

And the most important part of the technique to remember is to repeat, repeat, repeat!

This technique can be difficult at first for some people to coordinate, so do the best you can. You'll get the hang of it after a few tries and the joint pain relief you achieve will be well worth the effort.

Technique 3: Hand-On-Hand



The Hand-On-Hand Technique is just a way to make the Press-Pull-Release, and the Press-Hold-Move Technique a bit more powerful by using both hands to work a tender spot.

Here's how to do it:
Take your fingertips and place them on the tender tissue you would like to release.
Curve your fingers a little bit, so your knuckles are higher than your fingertips.
Now take the out edge of the palm of your other hand and place it over your fingertips, and then press down.

The "hand on hand" technique allows you to apply more pressure to the tissue without tiring out your hands. You simply press on the tissue with your finger tips, and press on your finger tips with your other hand. It's amazing how much easier it can sometimes be to work on yourself using the "hand on hand" technique.

So you just press on the tissue with your fingertips, while your other hand is pressing on your fingertips to add more pressure. Then you either do the Press-Pull-Release Technique or the Press-Hold-Move Technique, but now it's even more powerful with the Hand-On-Hand Technique added to it.

Remember, healthy tissue is not tender (painful) when you press on it, so you are trying to find all the unhealthy (tight) tissue that needs to be released in the areas I direct you to. Simply put……tender tissue is unhealthy tissue. When we release it, odds are that your joint pain will diminish or even disappear.

Technique 4: Tennis-Ball-Press



This is the Press-Hold-Move Technique except the tennis ball is doing the pressing instead of our fingers. You'll use your bodyweight with the tennis ball between your body and the floor, or using your bodyweight with the ball between your body and the wall to create pressure.

Once the ball is applying the pressure to your tight tissue, we'll just have you move in a way that makes the muscle work that the tennis ball is pressing on. This forces the tissue to flex and relax with steady pressure from the tennis ball under one spot……which as we've said above is similar to stretching the tissue with your fingertips.

The Tennis-Ball-Press doesn't have to use a tennis ball although that does tend to work the best most of the time. Sometimes a lacrosse ball may be a better fit. Sometimes a baseball or even a softball can be the right tool to achieve the joint pain relief you are seeking. But a tennis ball is usually just right, plus they're cheap and most people have one already.

Assessing Tight Tissue



Assessing what tissue is tight and what tissue is not tight is important in your quest for pain relief because 90 percent of the time it is inappropriately tight tissue that is the main cause of your joint pain.

The video above describes the "press and assess" method and the "stretch and assess" method.

When doing "press and assess," first you are just seeking out tissue that is painful when you press on it. Since healthy tissue does NOT hurt when you press on it (within reasonable parameters) then finding an area that is painful means it's time to begin the techniques listed and described in the video on this "Your Techniques" page.

Also, while doing "press and assess" the hand that is pushing on the tissue should be noticing how supple the tissue is that you are pressing into. Healthy tissue is supple and has a lot of "give." Unhealthy tissue will be less supple, "ropey," "rubbery," and stiffer. This is also a good clue of what tissue to work on.

The "stretch and assess" method is also useful for finding areas of tight tissue that need to be worked on. Basically, if you are able to do a stretch on the area I'm telling you to work on, and you're be able to feel tension in some spots, those are the areas you want to work on. This is much easier to see in the above video.
