Michelle Turner explains how low mobility can affect your body.

Hi, I am Michelle Turner. I am a movement therapy specialist and I work with people to improve their movement of their system.

I look for ways if they are not moving efficiently and I go in and I work with their system and I give them new ways of moving so they relieve themselves with pain and other discomforts or just have a better life.

There are various ways that lack of movement or mobility issues affect the system. Perfect example is stand up straight. People said you stand up straight.

Well if you know how to stand up straight, you would because it’s more efficient how to go. It’s sort of like going to a new place. Did you get lost?

Well every time you went to that place would you get lost again? That’s not very efficient.

So what I do or what a system should be able to do is just have a way of working and moving.

So instead of it being a right or a wrong way it’s just, well that’s great, you can raise your hand this way.

Well, can we get it to move this way? Can we move it this way? Can we move it that way? So you have a vocabulary of movement in your system just to be more efficient.

You are not as tired. You are not as fatigued, and you are not going into stress situations which can cause disease like osteoporosis of just bending over, fastest form of aging for a woman.
