I have been suffering with back pain since December when I had what was described as a "major disk herniation." It's in quotes because I've read the material and am ignoring the MRI... And reenforcing my belief that all of this pain is TMS. I signed up for a full day training session on intense joint mobility work, followed by a four hour training in the Russian martial art of Systema - which I wanted to learn for their breathing techniques. I spent the morning stretching, doing push-ups, pull-ups, major stretches and rotations of every joint in my body.... With no pain or issues at all. The afternoon? I engaged in full contact Russian special ops sparring practice with some very in shape folks... I was thrown to the ground multiple times, stretched and contorted, wrestled people, took full on punches and kicks.... And I would be remiss to mention that it was a two hour drive In a car each way... Which in itself wold have been agonizing. I am new to this and new to healing through it.... But I will hold this day very close. How can there be something physically wrong with me if I was able to do all of that! How can I have a severe disk herniation? Side note... Check out systema breathing. Great tool I learned. Helpful with reoxygenating muscles. Thanks... Just had to share a good day.
