If you experience foot pain, low back discomfort or aching hip joints wearing high heel footwear, a new low-cost High Heel Healing e-book is being published in the Fall of 2014 with eight chapters of detailed information on better foot function for improved posture and pain relief for joints of the ankles, knees, hips and all parts of the back.
The heels of the feet are the lower parts of what's known in physical fitness circles, yoga disciplines and movement studies as the back body.
The heels align with the great supportive strength of the hamstrings muscles as well as having skeletally-supportive relation to the important points of the pelvic structure including sits bones and the backs of the hips - which align on either side of the central spine.
Understanding the back body and how strength of back muscles serves support of the spine has been the focus of the work of Tim Driscoll from Backbone and Wingspan for over eighteen years.
This enhanced e-book is filled with over 500 photos, illustrations and interactive images!
In the last several years of owning a Pilates studio in Midtown Manhattan of NYC, he hosted a number of High Heel Recovery Clinics - and his approach to assisting women in need of pain relief - as well as desire for better postural support and more graceful ways of walking in high heels - was featured in CNN.com Health and Gotham Magazine as well as on CBS News New York - in addition to receiving mention in The New York Times Thursday Styles Section.
You can see snippets of press clippings with links to the stories at the website HighHeelHealing.com.
Since moving on from owning and managing a studio, he has devoted the last several years of his profession to creating - in writing, video and hundreds of interactive illustrations - how to use the feet - and particularly the heels - to access the entire system of back body support.....
from releasing tight calf muscles in order for powerful hamstrings strength to engage all the way up to the stability of the sits bones -
to being able to use deep core muscle support by freeing the lower spinal length down through the sacrum and tail bone.
In this new e-book every chapter has knowledge, verbal imagery, and body movement metaphors to assist in all aspects of better body support for high heels - or really any type of footwear.
Plus there are activities you can practice sitting, standing and walking which will incorporate the knowledge into your body for better grounding, stability, mobility, and agility.
With Driscoll's new name as an author - Herald - he details in writing - as well as illuminating through hundreds of photos and illustrations and twelve instructive videos - the following variety of foot, hip and spine aspects of better supporting the body:
