Jana's Rim to Rim Experience

Jana's Rim to Rim Experience

Now that I have completed the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hike I understand the draw a little better and why there are some people who want to return to hike it again and again. The sense of accomplishment that you have when you finish something of that magnitude is incredible. Not only is that feeling incredible, but the sights are incredible. Only 1% of the Grand Canyon visitors see the sights that are down in that canyon, they are incredible and I got to see them!

Improve Your Health, through “Quench”(ing) Your Thirst!,

Improve Your Health, through “Quench”(ing) Your Thirst!,

Drinking water has never been so popular than before with many people carrying their own water bottle or purchasing cases of water. It is important to understand how the body stays hydrated. Recently I came across the book Quench” by Dana Cohen, Gina Bria which discusses the importance of water and how to get stay and maintain your body’s hydration.

While We Were Out of the Office

Finding time to take care of your self can be difficulty and hard to do. As therapist that take care of other people’s body, it is part of our daily routine to take care of our body and recharge or battery on a regular basis. Recently, Tim Sr and I Tim Jr travel with two others to recharge and energize our body in the wonderful desert Red Rocks of Sedona, Arizona.  

We traveled to Sedona, Arizona for 5 days to enjoy the wonderful beauty that the land there has to offer. We stayed at the Butterfly Inn, a cabin resort just north of Sedona nested in Oak Creek Canyon. A beautiful forested area that has a stream running through it. Oak Creek Canyon is a anyon so the peace and quiet gave us the best opportunity to reconnect with nature. 

Each day started out with t’ai chi and enjoying the wonder breakfast that was include with our stay at the Butterfly Inn. After that we headed off to hike amoungst the red rock formations which Sedona is famous for. While on the hike we stopped and enjoy drumming, singing, native flute music and the beautiful scenery. 

Some of the rock formations that we saw were Bell Rock, Court House Rock, Boynton Canyon Trail, Airport Mesa (for the sunset and the Full moon drumming) which was absolutely amazing!!! Drumming during the  full moon over Sedona was awesome!!!! We also visited the Stupa, and Cathedral Rock, which we did some rock stacking, soaking our feet in the water and a creek crossing. The trip was an adventure and an experience. 

Since body work and massage is what we do we decided to practice what we preach and received two Myofascial release treatments at “Therapy on The Rocks“ which was an awesome treatment that left us feeling lite and full of energy. 

We travel to Sedona to recharge our battery and to bring back a piece of Sedona (the red rocks, blue skies, the energy) to share with our family, friends and clients that we work with. It is what recharges us and help us to continue to work on our clients.  

We will be making another trip to Sedona in 2018 in Fall. If you are interested in joining us send us an email timsr@pathsinhealing.com or call us at 281-352-3611.

2018 Journey to Sedona

Last year around this time we traveled to Sedona and as most of you know we love the Southewest area and the beauty that this area has to offer. We just returned back from an awesome 6 day trip with 10 wonderful people that we got to share the beauty of Sedona with. This trip was pack full of reflection, making friends, hiking, painting rocks, t’ai chi, drumming and Native American flute playing. We also enjoyed healthy restaurants that nourished the body and were super tasty! 

We started our trip off at the Phoenix airport and travel north to Sedona and stoping at Montezuma’s Castle which is nestled in the face of a cliff. The hike through this ancient national park is through an oasis of sycamore trees and desert plants that makes for a beautiful natural desert garden. After that we made our way to Sedona and stop at the ChocaloTree for a delicious vegetarian meal that was extrordinary! The food was full of flavor and filling after a long day of traveling. Then we headed off to the Butterfly Inn which would be home base for the next 5 days. 

We complete two 5 mile hikes, one around courthouse rock and bell rock and the other up to devil’s bridge. The hikes were fun and casual, making frequent stops to admire the scenery around us and play some music. The hike allowed time for us to get to talk to each other about our interest and backgrounds in life. Playing music out on the rock is a unique experience that is unlike anything that you have expereince before. The peacefulness of the rock and desert plants mixed with the quietness of the wind blowing around create the opportunity to stage an experience that is unique to those that were able to expereince it. Other hikers would hike by and stop and listen and thank us for providing back ground scenery music for them. It was fun to stop and be creative while on the hikes.  

We also visited Oak Creek by Cathedral Rock and hung out by the creek playing music and enjoying each other’s company and some us took a nap by the creek. The ambiance set by the creek created a wonderful peaceful area to recharge and let go of time. We decide to do a Sound and Vibration experience on the Red Rocks by the creek which was mind blowing and an experience all in it self. This is something that we will be bring to Houston in the coming months so please stay tuned for more info on this. The Sound and Vibration Expereince is something that is unlike anything you have ever experienced before. 

The sunsets in Sedona are breathe taking so we had to take advantage of that and we headed to airport mesa where you can get a 360 degree view of Sedona and watch in awe at the sun setting. Another great sunset that we witness was at Crescent Moon State Park near Cathedral Rock. When the sun sets, Cathedral Rock lights up from the sun reflecting on the red rock. It is absolutely amazing to witness. Let just be honest Sedona is a magical place that has so much to offer.  

Sedona is also the home of a Stupa which is a Buddhist sacred site that holds a capsule full of manusripts. We spent some time there enjoying the peace of these sacred grounds. 

The last day we closed by reflecting on the trip. What it meant for us to be together enjoying this beautiful place. It was a wonderful time to step away from our lives in Houston to reflect on our selves and to dive deeper into our souls to understand what it is that we really need in life.  

This trip was amazing! The people that joined us on this trip were amazing and the friendships we and the experiences that we shared were awesome. We plan to make this a yearly trip every November so stayed tuned for 2019’s dates and we will send you more information.

Sedona recharges our battery so that when can continue to provide high quality sessions to our clients, that is one of the reasons we go. And for you it will give you a “TIME OUT” from your daily routine. Enjoy the pictures and join us for our next Journey to Sedona!!!!

Runner's Knee Explained and Stretched!

Runner's Knee Explained and Stretched!

Runners will come into see us for regular maintenance during their training months leading up to a marathon. One of the common issues that we see in our practice is something called runner's knee. Runner's Knee is typically pain that occurs on the lateral or outside of the knee. This can be caused by the Biceps Femoris pulling the the Tibia (lower leg) into rotation.  When the Tibia rotates laterally it cause the knee to become misaligned which makes the joint not function well. An imbalanced joint will lead to poor mechanics which leads to pain and faulty movement patterns.

Is Your IT Band Tight?

Is Your IT Band Tight?

IT Band (Iliotibial band), tightness affects many people and athletes of all types specifically runners. IT band tight can cause knee pain, hip pain and even affect the ankle and foot. When addressed properly the IT Band will loosen and relieve tension in those areas. The IT band is a long tendon that has muscular attachments at the hip. The muscle that attach at to the hip are the Tensor Fascia Lata and the Gluteus Maximus. When these muscles contact they tense the IT Band. Therefore if they are not addressed then the IT band will continue to be tight.
