In this episode of Living Healthy, I discuss who I am, some easy to understand concepts of the foot and ankle, and the Graceyfeet product line. What I did not have time for was to convey the understanding that the bridge between foot comfort and wellbeing extends beyond the physical and scientific theories described by scientists in peer-review journals. That my orthotics reach beyond the objective alignment of the joints and reduced foot pressures to touch the very soul of the wearer at the heart of their anxiety. Graceyfeet orthoses encourage a process of learning to recognize and observe (mind) the reactions and habitual patterns of a foot fall (body) and the resulting effort (breath) you extend during your functional day. Graceyfeet orthoses strive to align the bones, joints, and muscles, thereby enhancing strength and flexibility, balanced muscle action, and stamina and endurance. They are tuned to your perceived comfort and the more you wear them, the sooner you will discover the right balance between ease and effort in standing and walking. You'll be lengthening and contracting your muscles, aligning and gliding your joints, and quieting and soothing your nervous system as your Sole Commander orthoses guide your center of progression on its most correct path. They seek to bring about a mindfulness of motion.
Huge Hug and Thank You to Jay Greenstein and Barton Bishop for inviting me to come on and share my passion for making feet feel good. You may contact me by email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or at any one of the 7 Sport and Spine Rehab locations throughout the DC/MD/VA area.
God is good, Peace be with you, and Namaste'
