We take our bodies, as they are, with faulty structural patterns that have developed over years from repetitive movements from career patterns and stress and with out addressing the underlying structure, we then lift weights and engage in other similar activities. Without addressing the underlying structure first, this type of additional activity can lead to chronic pain and degenerative joints and low functioning organs due to restrictions and compression!
To build muscle on this structure that is compressed and has Fascial tissue that is pulling our structure out of alignment is dangerous and aging to our bodies joints and nervous system and organs.

Yamuna Body Rolling
by Linda Sechrist
Personal experience ignited Patti Reed’s passion for preventing pain and undoing the damage done by many of today’s fitness regimens. An Ace Certified Personal Trainer and owner of Intuitive Movement, Reed lived with a great deal of pain that resulted from years of repetitive movements she performed daily in her dog grooming business and personal weightlifting routine. After she began working with a cutting-edge physical therapist, that integrated myofascial release and trigger point therapy into her work, Reed’s body began to respond gradually to being stretched over a foam roller and exercise ball. “My body was a real mess but I really looked good because I had worked out three hours every day at the gym. Unknowingly, repetitive movements had impacted my muscular structure and unfortunately, my trainer didn’t know about doing a full postural analysis before developing my body building routines. As I eventually learned, this is a major mistake because a trainer needs to know your range of motion for all the muscles in the body in order to develop a routine that doesn’t do damage,” explains Reed.
Extensive personal research provided Reed with ways that she could expand on the stretching techniques recommended by the physical therapist. Ultimately she found an arsenal of self-release tools including Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR), a powerful self-fixing and maintaining tool, which she began using in her self-care routine. “I took the YBR classes and became a certified YBR Practitioner. In 2001, I became a Medical Massage Therapist and took classes from Aaron Mattes, whose Mattes Method of active isolated stretching is recognized worldwide for treating pain. All of this helped me to understand how my body’s muscular system works, what muscles to release and stretch, as well as in what order,” notes Reed, who offers group and private YBR sessions.
Everyone, regardless of age or physical limitations, can benefit from YBR, which organizes the body and brings all the parts back to working the way they should and can be. In a YBR class, individuals learn to work on each part of the body, rolling the ball, which is appropriately sized and firmed, from the buttocks to the calf; from the tail bone up to the skull; from the abdomen up to the collar bone; from the collar bone out to the shoulder joint; and so on. “YBR, which gives individuals the opportunity to work on themselves, develops a sense of empowerment because they can free their body of restrictions and eliminate stress and tension anytime, anywhere, forever,” says Reed.
