Does your aching back leave you glued to your couch, wishing you could go fly a kite with your kids? Did you wince more than twice standing for hours making holiday dinners last week? Do you ever feel like throwing your office chair out the window?
ELDOA Can Help You
I'll get to why and how in a moment.
If you haven't reached this debilitating state of agony, let me share some warning signs to prevent the onset of such extreme pain and immobility:
Your joints are stiff and sore;
You can’t roll down to touch the ground;
You don’t drink enough water;
You aren't sleeping well, tossing and turning all night;
You aren't exercising;
Maybe you are exercising too much.
Does this sound like you? Hold on, I can help you, but first let me tell you my story.
My name is Sean Kemp Waldie, your EL DOA instructor.
At 33 years of age now, I find myself climbing trees and doing cartwheels. That wasn't always the case.
For the last 6 years, I've been working exclusively with other people to heal their back pain and improve their quality of life. Again, not always the case.
I have not had back pain in YEARS, but I used to suffer every minute of every day.
Here's My Story
When I was 25 years old, I was partner in a growing technology firm.
With that came, as many of you can imagine, non stop work at a computer desk, glued to a screen, 7 days a week, 14 to 17 hours a day. All I did was focus on business development and nothing else.
After over 2 years of that 'grind', I decided I needed to get back into shape, so I started doing some push ups and sit ups at home. In the middle of an intense push up session, I sneezed. A harmless pitiful sneeze that sent terrorizing pain through my entire body.
Can you believe that a routine home exercise could send me into surgery?
It's almost as if I blinked my eyes for a moment and suddenly found myself surrounded by a bunch of surgeons telling me they need to do 6 surgeries over the next 2 years to fix my spine so that MAYBE I will stand and walk again.
Well, it was at that point I said, "I have got to find another way."
And this is where the principles of functional medicine and alternative care, much like what VitalityMD advocates, came into play.
What made my recovery so drastically different than what my 'traditional' Dr’s and Surgeons had anticipated was ELDOA.
My physiotherapist knew about, and recommended, the method and immediately began a rigorous practice of what is, without question, one of the most challenging yet oddly safe exercise systems in existence.
The results where noticeable and immediate.
So, What is ELDOA?
ELDOA it a revolutionary form of exercise designed by world renowned Osteopath, Guy Voyer.
It is the antithesis of the last 150 years of approaches to back pain. The complete opposite of traditional back pain solutions and so much more effective.
Why Do ELDOA?
In a nutshell, because it works.
ELDOA is both a reactive treatment as well as preventative. But please don't wait until you are suffering to seek help. Be proactive as this exercise system strengthens all the muscles of our spine so it moves flexibly and easily.
Here's my personal take on ELDOA, having used it for my own reactive treatment and preventative care for my many students.
It improves the kinesthetic sense of the spine. What do I mean? Well, the value of you being able to FEEL the strength of your spine needs to be felt to understand the benefits.
What have my students said about ELDOA?
" For my whole life I have had this pain in my back and after a 2 hour ELDOA workshop run by Sean Waldie this past November it was totally gone." - Artist and long time back pain sufferer
"This has been a game changer for all my physical activities" - Michael Avid Kayaker
"My posture has totally changed as I can now feel how my spine supports me." Karen, Massage Therapist
"My back pain is pretty much gone and since doing it on a weekly basis I have grown an inch and a half. Also, I find it easier to self correct my posture in a way that I didn't get from my other spinal exercises." - Chloe, Film and Television Editor
In closing, and in all reality, this is an approach to exercise that everyone can benefit from. You only need to try it to notice the incredible life changing benefits.
I look forward to working with you. Sign up for a class at VitalityMD or join us at our talk on April 27th, 2017 to learn more.
