The Twist That Untwists | from Comfort Your S-I Joints, Unit 2 Lawrence Gold

February 16, 2015

The Twist That Untwists is an integration exercise that builds upon those that have preceded it in Comfort Your S-I Joints. “Integration” means that with this exercise, you incorporate the effects of the preceding exercises into an overall, larger pattern. You feel better put together, move more easily and move in better balance.

I explain the rationale for the S-I Joint regimen (send blank email to s-i.joint.pain@somatics.com for the entire regimen) in the following entry: Understanding the S-I Joints, Relieving S-I Joint Pain | http://lawrencegoldsomatics.blogspot.com/2011/04/understanding-sacro-iliac-joints.html |

This sidelying demonstration of Cat Stretch Exercise #5 (The Cat Stretch Exercises | http://somatics.com/page7-cat_audio.htm) | shows how to integrate the lateral (side) hip joint muscles. This more advanced version incorporates head lifting and lowering movements synchronized with the movement of the leg.

This somatic education exercise combines with Nose in the Hole, an exercise for freeing twisting movements of the trunk, shoulders, and neck. | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDJbPKaAALU |

Ida Rolf, developer of The Rolf Method of Structural Integration, in her book, Rolfing, the Integration of Human Structures, referred to the hip joints as “the joints that determine symmetry”. This exercise fosters that symmetry.
