NOW is the calling...


The BODY as INFORMER... the dialogues of quest, pain, disease, stress, ill health are petitions for understanding and care...
The philosopher speaks to the power of "Know Thyself,” beauty, truth, the musician speaks to resonance and harmony. the artist speaks to form, line, structure, color, the poet speaks to passion, word, vision, the educator speaks to focus, intent, skill, task, process, mastery, the martial arts master speaks to discipline, commitment and power, the coach speaks to game, rules, and winning, the body worker speaks to flexibility, strength, readiness. Should not the physician, the therapist, the counselor, the dietitian, each health professional, know the significance of each of these dialogues?? 
Truly a holistic paradigm of health care is called for! A person’s health and wellbeing are drawn from a myriad of influences, be they of heredity, environment, nutrition, experience, thought, attitude, care, abuse, trauma, imaginings, creativity, practices, consciousness. YES, the practices of seers, sages, healers, of Ancient Egypt, India, China, Rome, Greece, were guided by the ways of nature found in the human condition. Have we become so arrogant in our orientation to hold to the giving of prescriptive medications as the answer to all the ills of humankind? Are we coming to the realization that health care is to be mindful of cause and effect, supporting need, rather than simply masking symptoms? The body is a message bearer… it has a cell signaling process, not to be muffled, but to be decoded, respected, and understood, for its physical, neurological, chemical, emotional, energetic, call for balance and wellbeing.

CAUSE and EFFECT have guided the orientations, research and development of specific service offerings and practices, both personally and professionally, since the Founding of the APOGEE Paradigm™ in 1983. YES, ‘Know Thyself’ … in all dimensions of need and power, in all aspects of health and wellbeing, in all expressions of consciousness. Listen to YOUR BODY AS INFORMER and learn its language of expressed need.


The BODY as INFORMER

Accord, Communication, Cell Signaling, Indicator Muscles, Innervation… and known be the experience of body, triggered by structure, form, balance, stress, the full province of consciousness.

The artistry of our anatomical structure was indeed fully embraced by Leonardo da Vinci. How is a body constructed for movement, for survival, for life itself? Is there a ‘measure’ of man? By what divinity are proportions created? How is  form and function aligned? Wherein lies the embrace of grace, spirit and beauty? Man as divine proportion, as sacred geometry, as living spirit, as the art of BEING,  are expressed in da Vinci’s drawings, paintings, depictions, constructions, illustrated dissections. The depth of his knowing, his inspired exploration, his brilliant discoveries, his ever questioning genius, have been given unto us, indeed as the ART of BEING. 

To understand the body, its calling for nurturance, support, awareness, is to understand the very workings of our everyday existence. Every pain, every discomfort, ever illness, every disease, is the body calling for reappraisal, for change, for balance. And so we look to nutrition, to exercise, to relaxation, to massage, to what brings joy, satisfaction, goal and purpose. The body is reactive, reactive, reactive… Health and wellbeing are the result of responsiveness to the reactive body.

By the understanding of the very responsiveness of specific muscles and innervation points, one can bring an informed awareness of what the body is signaling. The Deltoid Muscle, as an indicator muscle, is used to measure the presence of, or obstruction of, energetic flow. The Deltoid Muscle located on the outer aspect of the shoulder is recognized by its triangular shape. It was named after the Greek letter Delta for the similar shape they both share. The deltoid muscle is constructed with three main sets of fibers: anterior, middle, and posterior. These fibers are connected by a very thick tendon and are anchored into a V-shaped channel. This channel is housed in the shaft of the humerus bone in the arm. The deltoid muscle is responsible for the brunt of all arm rotation.  It is also tasked with stopping dislocation and injury to the humerus when carrying heavy loads. One of the most common injuries to the deltoid muscle is a deltoid strain. Deltoid strain is characterized by sudden and sharp pain where injured, intense soreness and pain when lifting the arm out from the side of the body, and tenderness and swelling caused by, and located at, the deltoid muscle. Pain and/or weakness of the deltoid muscle is not only an indication of physical injury, but is a responsive indicator to stress and/or trauma, real, remembered, perceived, or imagined.

The BODY as INFORMER… this the science and the art of direct body biofeedback.

c. 1200, Greek letter shaped like a triangle, equivalent to our "D," the name from Phoenician daleth "tent door." Herodotus used it of the mouth of the Nile, and it was so used in English from 1550s; applied to other river mouths from 1790.

-oid 
word-forming element meaning "like, like that of, thing like a ______," from Latinized form of Greek -oeides, from eidos "form," related to idein "to see," eidenai "to know;" literally "to see," from PIE *weid-es-, from root *weid- "to see, to know" (see vision). The -o- is connective or a stem vowel from the previous element.



1741, in deltoid muscle, so called for its shape, from Greek deltoeides "triangular," literally "shaped like the letter delta;" see delta + -oid.

Vibration, frequency, balance, behavior and well being.


APOGEE Acu-Tone™ …


Vibration, frequency, balance, behavior  and well being.

Vibration is the frequency that our energy body resonates at. 
When we operate at a denser/low vibration and when our energies are not in balance:
We feel, and emulate anger, hatred, rage, jealousy, fear, resentment, projection, on a myriad of levels of intensity. Being at a denser/low vibration constricts your flow of energy, and brings about defensive/offensive behaviors.
On a physical level, when we are operating at a denser vibration, we are more readily to feel tired and have bouts of exhaustion, even if we are otherwise seemingly taking care of our bodies. Constricting emotions brings about shallow breathing, this drastically reduces easy flow of oxygen and blood to the body, resulting in achy, and/or tight, muscles. When blood flow is constricted, nourishment to our cells, organs, and systems becomes significantly compromised.
When we are at a denser vibration, we attract others who resonate at that same level of vibration. Like attracting like.
When we operate at our higher vibrations, when are energies are balanced: 
We feel, and emulate love, joy, faith, peace, and a sense of loving command and confidence. Cells are in open communication, responsive and supportive of balance and wellbeing.
Physically, our bodies respond to higher vibration with increased blood flow to tissues, muscles, and organs. Oxygen is carried in our blood, to our various systems, nourishing them. Tightness, stress and pain are appreciably reduced or eliminated.
YES... CAUSE and EFFECT consistently in expression!!

... form, function, structure, in dynamic dialogue... and SMILE it is !!


APOGEE Acu-Tone™ F A C I A L V I B R A N C Y 
Specific, in the moment, acoustic frequencies via medical grade tuning forks, are applied to each cranium and facial bone. Each bone takes in and echoes the frequency to specific parts of the body. A flow of sounding communication brings, deep relaxation, renewal, and a most welcomed Facial Vibrancy.

Our cells are in intercellular dynamic communication with every living system within our body, within our consciousness, within each breath of BEING. We are the parts, we are the wholes, configured for health and wellbeing. Skull bones, facial bones, acupuncture points of the ear, receive specific acoustic frequencies that bring about a flow of cell communication and a newly experienced sense of balance, and vibrancy, that is felt and visibly evident in a younger, more vibrant, relaxed, facial presence.

ho·lism
(hōlˌizəm)
noun


•PHILOSOPHY...
The theory that parts of a whole are in intimate interconnection, such that they cannot exist independently of the whole, or cannot be understood without reference to the whole, which is thus regarded as greater than the sum of its parts. Holism is often applied to mental states, language, and ecology.


•MEDICINE...
The treating of the whole person, taking into account mental, emotional and social factors, rather than just the physical symptoms of a disease.


•ORIGIN...
1920s: from holo- ‘whole’ + -ism; coined by J. C. Smuts to designate the tendency in nature to produce organized “wholes” (bodies or organisms) from the ordered grouping of units. 
(Source: Goggle Search)



Yes, we are parts, yet an integrated whole. To respect the whole, we are to be mindful of the structure,  form and functions of the parts, to respect the parts we are to appreciate their structure, form and functions in creating the whole. HOLISM is the art and science of respect for the knowing intelligence of Creation.  YES, APOGEE Acu-Tone™Dynamic Holism...  Cell signaling of parts to wholes for the GOOD of the ONE.

Tensional Integrity - TENSEGRITY and APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Spinal Resonance


da Vinci
Anatomical Drawings


The word tensegrity is an invention: it is a contraction of tensional integrity.  (re: tensional: A balanced relation between strongly opposing elements: re: integrity: the condition of being unified, unimpaired, or sound in construction). The principles of tensional integrity are basic to the APOGEE Paradigm™. Balance is sought to assure the equitable exchange and support of, structure, form and function. The body is a nested tensegrity system, ever in quest of stability, in constant cell communication, responsive to all that it experiences, physically, mentally, emotionally. It is dynamic not static. Its function is to integrate, assimilate and communicate within its nervous systems, organ systems, circulatory system, and skeletal structure. Form and structure interact with pressure or tension resulting in the integrity or lack of integrity ultimately of both form and function. 

APOGEE Acu-Tone™ provides enhancement of the function, the communication,  of the nervous and organ systems by excitation of internal motion and cell communication. This via vibrational application of calibrated, medical grade tuning forks to spinal points, meridian pathways, auricular points and cranial points. By bringing forth tensional integrity, the body experiences, balance, relaxation, alignment, pain release, facial vibrancy, and an overall feeling of flexibility and wellbeing.

I am more than pleased to report that the application of APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Spinal Resonance, has proved to be marvelously effective in bringing the body into a relaxed, balanced state, that allows FST ( Fascia Stretch Therapy) to be efficiently and effectively administered.  The client is brought to a state of readiness that is described and experienced by the client, to be deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. The subsequent FST process is administered and received with greater ease,  for both the client and practitioner.

As I hear, feel, appreciate the word, ‘tensegrity’ as originally coined,  representing principles of architecture, denoting a relationship that assures stability and balance, its application to the human condition must go beyond the structural. The human condition is dynamic. It is influenced by perception, emotion, experience, moment by moment. Although an architectural designed structure can be similarly influenced by changes in the environment and weather conditions that impact upon the structure, such a structure  is not impacted by the internal forces of bodily need, spirit, emotion, perception, mindfulness, imagination. This implies that all therapeutic interventions are to be guided by "tensional integration,” yes, integration, appreciation and understanding of all that brings about tensional change in the human form. Indeed it is the interface and complement of body, mind and spirit that leads to wellness of BEING.

APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Spinal Resonance is seen as a preparatory process for FST and other professional  therapeutic interventions, including the practices of massage therapists, chiropractors, personal trainers, body workers.

A Post Script... June 1, 2017...  following this posting...


He calls me his, “Tuning Lady."


My seven year old student, who refers to me as his, “Tuning Lady" expressed his dismay over the number of hours he was obliged to work at a computer in school,  in order to complete a "long test.” He reported the resultant headache, neck and backache that he experienced as, “too much technology.” He further stated that he enjoys technology,  but not when you have to miss all the other activities that make a school day, and just "keep working’” at the computer,  "just taking a test."


He requested, "a tuning," confident  that it would bring the much desired relief to his discomfort. His request was fulfilled by an APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Spinal Resonance session. He  greeted his Dad, post the session stating, “I am back feeling good.” YES, pain gone, stiffness and tension gone, and ‘back’ being a seven year old looking forward to outdoor play before dinner time.  Yes, APOGEE Acu-Tone™ Spinal Resonance is suitable for the younger set … tension release and “back" to "feeling good.” He was then ready anew for the planned mathematics activity. And yes, "The Tuning Lady" did receive a hug.
