Joint function is crucial for the health of the body and the efficient relationship to gravity and moment patterns. Many times chronic pain patterns are a result of mal-positioned joints and repetitive movement stress. Restoring the joints capacity for full range of motion and expansion can immediately normalize muscle function and have a profound effect on chronic pain patterns.
Movement is the organizing principal in the field of gravity that supports a higher order function of being. To be fully mobile and available to engage in your full range of movement is a direct influencing factor on your experience of being. Each one of our cells responds to the electrical field of gravitational pull and organize themselves to this field, if our structure and form is not in harmony with gravity not only does it effect posture and movement; but dynamically influences the bio field of our cells and their ability to organize and recreate themselves. When we don’t have proper engagement with gravity our cells become confused and inflammation on many levels can arise from improper joint position and a lack of grounding in our overall energy field.
In Chinese medicine there is a popular phrase: “bu tong ze tong, tong ze bu tong.” This means IF THERE IS NO FREE FLOW, THERE IS PAIN; IF THERE IS FREE FLOW, THERE IS NO PAIN; because the function of the joints in the body are directly related to the movement of blood, lymph and nerve supply as well as physical movement when they are jammed pain arrises and the soft tissue or muscles participate in the disfunction becoming inflamed and contracted. By opening up the internal aspects of the joints and helping them to articulate or move normally Qi and blood become free and the body doesn’t have to waste energy on maintaining stagnation or contracted blocks in the muscle. When the body becomes free our efforts to move become less strenuous helping us to have more energy to direct towards growth.
Visionary thinker and cosmologist R. Buckmaster Fuller coined the term “Tensegrity” as an exploration of tensional integrity as it related to architecture and building. His concept of Tensegrity revolutionized the idea of compression forces being a standard and efficient mechanism for building. Tensional integrity embraces the principal the the continuity and integrity of a structure is based upon tensional elements and lines of force that equally distribute weight sustaining a structure in gravity. The Body is a tensional unit where the bones serve as spaces that maintain proper degrees of tension while the joints serve as the meeting point of articulation between these spaces. Most people think that our muscles are responsible for holding us up in space; and in reality of bad posture, injury and poor movement patterns, our muscles are actually doing alot of unnecessary work to hold us up because our tension lines ( joints and bones) are not in harmony. The muscles, skin and especially fascia and connective tissue provide tensional lines between the hard spacers known as the bones in out temple of construction. When aging, injury and posture sets in theses lines of tension break down creating compressing forces leading to pain and the need for much more energy to maintain the compression. Proper joint alignment is a crucial factor to supporting and organizing the bodies tensegrity model and vertical capacity for growth.
