Taum who?

Taum began his 40+ year journey within Corrective Massage shortly after moving to Squaw Valley in 1976. The foundation of his work began in 1979 with his apprenticeship with Lauren Berry, RPT and Structural Engineer. This path has seen him invited to work with the US Ski team, the SF 49ers, professional runners, and cyclists.

For any and all ages, the focus is returning to pain-free living.

Taum's approach recognizes that the body is innately programmed to self-heal naturally when soft tissue relationships are balanced. His goal is to reduce the imbalances that interfere with that uniquely amazing ability.

You know this is important.
Your lower back feels heavy...
Your hip pain won't let you sleep...
Getting up from the chair is getting harder...
You know you should do something...

How about investing in your knowledge, educating yourself, and create your own 'Learned Response.'

Much as our cell phones and computers incorporate a core operating system to manage all our apps, our bodies' core operating system continually synchronizes an amazing variety of behind-the-scenes 'apps' to maintain our health and ease.

These 'apps' include camera eyes, radio ears, valves, tubes, pulleys, hinges, arches, temperature control, chemical laboratories, a telegraphic nervous system, a structural frame, storage space, a variety of pumps, pipelines, synchronized recycling, sewage disposal, and a constant self-repair system.

All are synchronized and orchestrated within our body's core operating system. Each of these 'apps' supports our ability to live in balance with our environment.

The medical term is 'Homeostasis.'

Each has an alert programmed to focus attention and offer an opportunity to respond.
Digestion and body temperature serve as good examples. 

Digestion Alerts: 

Reconsider diet.

Add probiotics or digestive bitters to our nutritional rituals.

Body Temperature Alerts:  

Shivering? Add a layer of clothing. 

Sweating? Take off a layer.

Our responses to these alerts are part of our life-learning experiences.


Pain Alerts in our Hips and Lower Back: 

It's time to learn a response.

It's relatively simple.

Muscles can become 'stuck.'

Stuck muscles create tension and pain.

This class is about un-sticking the ones that cause hip and back pain.

The primary intention of this class is to teach you incredibly efficient and effective self-help remedial techniques for responding to hip and back pain.

Combining knowledge, understanding, and 'movement with intention' can unlock and revitalize our self-healing ability.

This class is for everyone interested in understanding and taking an active role in their relationship with back and hip pain.

This class can serve you for the rest of your life.
