Dis-ease can be understood as an accumulation of stress. One of those stresses can be found in our muscular relationship with 'Gravity.'
One of the primary goals within the Lauren Berry Method® of Corrective Massage is to establish, encourage, and maintain the body’s core balance. Corrective work throughout the body has an enhanced opportunity to be effective and long lasting when core musculature is in a balanced state.
There are several foundational guidelines:
The human body has an innate ability to ‘repair and maintain’ itself.
When presented with pain and/or dysfunction, it is presumed this natural ability has been compromised via trauma, adaptation, repetitive stress, etc.
This innate ability is greatly influenced by the state of balance within the core musculature.
The compromises are often the result of muscular/soft tissue imbalances. (spasm, adhesion, distortion…)
By maintaining core balance, the body can get back to fixing and maintaining itself.
Corrective work throughout the body has an enhanced opportunity to last when one's core is balanced.
