What happens during a One-on-One Restorative Exercise™ session?
We talk about your health history and your health goals. Where are you now and where would you like to be?
We evaluate 25 specific areas of your body to determine objectively how they move in relation to each other.
We evaluate your ability to stabilize and mobilize different areas of your body - we determine your particular "gaps", where you currently are and how that contributes to your current symptoms
We work to bridge those gaps - we'll use a variety of correctives (stretches, exercises and movements) to help you make changes in how your body moves and functions
We investigate and explore your movement patterns - how do you stand, how do you walk? Those little movements you do a thousand times a day without even thinking about it all add up. I help you uncover what you're doing so you can better understand why your low back hurts when you stand for more than 15-20 minutes or why your left hip aches at the end of the day.
YOU LEARN HOW TO MOVE THE WAY YOUR BODY IS DESIGNED TO MOVE.
We investigate and explore your movement patterns. You are guided through different movements and stretches. You learn how to wake up muscles that fell asleep a long time ago and rediscover how to move parts of your body you forgot could move, like your kneecaps. You learn why it even matters whether or not you can move your kneecaps (I'm big on helping people understand the why behind what we do together).
Sometimes you get frustrated that something so simple as moving your scapulae without tucking your pelvis is so hard. You learn to be patient with where you are and work towards where you want to be.
It will feel strange and weird as many things do when we first learn them (or relearn them from long ago). You'll start paying attention in ways you've never before paid attention to your body.
By the end of your session, we've created a plan just for you that helps you move towards your specific goals.
You'll leave your session with various exercises, stretches and movements designed to undo the damage that years of unnatural movement patterns have layered onto your body. These are skills you practice and develop in between sessions.
You learn how to move well so that your body functions well.
If you're local to Columbus, OH, or within driving distance, you can have your Restorative Exercise™ session in-person with me at my office located in Clintonville.
$85 for 60 minute initial session
$80 for 60 minute follow-up session
After our session, you'll receive:
- a comprehensive practice plan including recommended daily exercise sequences
- handouts with exercise descriptions & photos plus
- links to additional articles I've gathered along the way that are relevant to helping you better understand your particular situation.
Ready to schedule?
What if I need to reschedule after I book my appointment?
Your time is valuable, my time is valuable. You are welcome to reschedule your appointment as long as it's 24 hours before we're scheduled to meet. If you reschedule after that window has passed (barring medical or family emergency or weather interference), your payment will be applied to your original appointment. Likewise, if I make a (fortunately extremely rare) scheduling mistake and need to cancel or reschedule your appointment with less than 24 hour notice (barring illness or family emergency), you get a free session.
Just send me an email - Lisa[at]LisaLLC[dot]com or call (614) 563-3094 - and I'll be glad to answer any questions you have about any of this, or see answers to some commonly asked questions here.
