Shanon Marie believes that education is the most powerful tool on the planet. Yet, it is very difficult for people to learn about their bodies, and that's especially true if they have suffered an injury.
A BodyMap is a unique and valuable document that illustrates how the various parts of the body fit and work together (or not). After creating and reviewing a map, Shanon and her client will use it to keep unraveling the mystery of why their body is in a state of mis-alignment or to explain why they are in chronic pain. These are the reasons that Shanon has designed a series of Five Clinics: To teach people how to work with limitations in their bodies and how to work to eliminate or to lessen these effects as they relate to the postural alignment of the body.
Each clinic is focused on a particular joint, for example, the feet or the knees. This approach enables participants to get the education they need, ask questions, and to experience an abbreviated BodyMapping session. The goal of the clinics is to give practical information to participants so they can understand why their bodies are in pain or why they are slow to recover from an injury. Each clinic is organized into two sections. The first section focuses on educating participants on the anatomy and the range of motions of the joint that we are exploring. Following this section, there will be a Q&A session of the material that was presented before participants move on to BodyMapping aspect of the clinic.
In the second part of the clinic, participants have the opportunity to have Shanon BodyMap this area of their body. This BodyMapping section of the clinic is unique only to the Bodyworks pain/injury clinics. Each participant will have the opportunity for Shanon to map the joint that we are focusing on in the clinic. During the mapping, Shanon will give each participant some basic information as to why they may be experiencing chronic pain or a postural alignment issue.
Clinic #1 - The feet are the foundations of the body and they are involved in many of the movements of the body. The feet often are one of the biggest culprits in causing chronic pain or postural alignment issues.
