Shake it off….

February 3, 2016 by Comments

bigstock_Little_Cute_Baby_1098424 When my son was a baby he had a hard time falling asleep.

I used to lightly drum on his back and shake him gently up and down on the bed. Sure enough, within 5 minutes he would fall asleep.

The other night, my now 16 year old son was having an unusally hard time falling asleep. He asked me if I could help him relax instead of using his phone to help him drift off.

So I lightly drummed on his back and gently shook him up and down.  Out like a light in 5 minutes.

Recently it’s come to my attention that various health practitioners are using “shaking” to help release stored up negative energy that once stuck in the body creates all types of dis-eases and stress. What an incredibly cool tool to teach our kids how to shake off stressful feelings that feel overwhelming – love it!

For some wonderful “shaking” exercises, check out TRE (Tension and Trauma Releasing Exercises) and The Solar Body 

One final note, after 30 years I’m beginning to see some of the genius in my crazy husband.  Check out his Shake-A-Leptic routine.  Next blog, I might just share Jamie’s blender impersonation…:)
