Let's Get Functional (Lines)

Let's Get Functional!

As football seasons end, Cricketers start winding up, and Ash Barty season continues it seems to me a perfect time to talk about the Functional Lines.  These fascia tracks are the reason we have smooth and powerful asymmetrical movements in walking, rowing, bowling, kicking, racquet swinging, and all the other athletic movements. So, even though I can't currently work on those "hammie" strains and shoulder dysfunctions, I figure we can at least talk about how to avoid them.

A Broad Look at the Lymphatic System


The Lymphatic System________________________

An Overview of the channels of our immune system

The lymphatic system is a collection of vessels and nodes that run parellal to the cardiovascular system.  The fluid within the lymph vessels is called "lymph" and it is made from the blood plasma.  Lymph carries nutrients, oxygen, and hormones to the interstitual spaces then removes toxins and cellular wastes products.  The nodes help to return the fluid back to the vessels which then carry the fluid to the heart where it enters the cardiovascular system and is carried to our eliminating organs.  With a properly functioning lymphatic system our body is able to recieve and eliminate the necessary components for our everyday life as well as protect us against invading pathogens.

And...We're Back!

AND... WE'RE BACK! How many massages will it take to clear out the dust?

To Birdsville, QLD and Back

As we left our home at dawn on a Tuesday morning I felt the Blues Brother's "Peter Gunn Theme" was most appropriate.  We had everything we needed and most of what we did Not need, but who has time to pack for these things, right?  Sometimes, taking one step at a time means throw in the whole lot and make sure there's air in the spare 'cause we are riding on high spirits and other people's itinerary.  Excited for what lay ahead, we enjoyed the scenery and eased into the drive.
