This belongs in ‘Know Your Own Body’ because — when you have a sport that’s been working since Lord Stanley’s Cup (100+ years ago) — THERE IS NO REASON TO CHANGE THE GAME because the score is tied. Someone decided that scoring beats all, and it doesn’t.
When you have an unpleasant feeling in a part of your body which feels really tight, try unscrewing it. Put your hand over the spot where you have pain. The hand doesn’t have to be directly over the spot – maybe four or five inches above it in the air. Circle your hand in an opposite direction (i.e., against the feel of pressure that you are feeling). Then, keep repeating the motion. The repetition of this action should do the following:
(1) Reduce the stress in the area where you feel an issue.
(2) increase the circulation in that area.
(3) Give you a better feeling of calm.
(4) Make you feel that you want to continue this practice every day.
Please try this out and let me know how this works.
