Assessing Zero Balancing Day 3

Wow!  I have to say that writing the post soon after receiving a treatment is best.  Because this way I will remember the key points I want to jot down  🙂

Also, I want to state for the record, that receiving 3 sessions of ZB is necessary – vital.  Do it.  Go.  Now.  Having received 3 sessions within a 3 week period (over the course of 21 days to be exact), I realize that the unfolding and softening and processing of tension stored in the joints and bones is definitely a process that cannot be reached in one treatment.  There are many layers and complex psycho-emotional and physiological strata that can be worked through.  But I don’t want to scare anyone off – Connie was extremely professional and for the most part, she was silent in doing the treatment.  So any psycho-emotional processing was purely my choice and my prerogative.

Here is a brief assessment of various body parts and how they feel, one hour after my 3rd treatment:

The most significant shift I notice is in my neck – for at least 3 years, I have dealt with stiffness and off and on soreness there.  But now I am noticing at least a 75% improvement in my range of motion and now instead of feeling pervasive, unresponsive stiffness, I notice a couple of small areas of tenseness and resistance.  But it is extremely localized and manageable.  Before I would just accept that that was the way things might be.

My ribs in the back feel more open, below and especially around my scapula (shoulder blades).  Not only that, I notice better and smoother range of motion in my arms and shoulders, and my hips and pelvis feel more open and more responsive.  It literally feels like a breath of fresh air is blowing through certain joints where as previously, it was getting a little musty.

To be honest, I still have more work to do.  I signed up for another ZB treatment in 2 weeks – I want to assess where I am at on 5 treatments and then if I want to continue, I will assess at 7 and 10 treatments.  Connie is a superb massage therapist, so I will probably drop in getting a massage as a reward once I finish this semester of school (December).  And that will be heavenly.  And at the same time, I am looking forward to this opening I am noticing and exploring with ZB.

I do need more exercise.  Nursing school has made it so nearly every single minute can be taken up reading, studying, completing care plans, etc.  But I intend to enjoy it as much as I can and I want to strike a good balance between self care, relaxation and plugging away with studies.

I am very happy to have worked with Connie.  She is a skilled and professional and compassionate bodyworker.  Again, if you are in the Central Virginia area, you can contact her for sessions at:
