Dr. Chet treated me last November at a Mountain Bike Race in East Timor. I had just dislocated my shoulder for the 4th time and the motion was very limited and it was unstable when riding. Within two treatments my shoulder had better range of motion than it has had in 6 years, and it felt very secure. Since then it has remained stable and has allowed me to keep bike racing around the World without problems. Dr.Chet is one of the most down to earth and approachable guys you will ever meet. He listens, and is very optimistic as he works his magic. He not only heals your body, but also any doubts you may have in your mind about the physical condition. By far the best treatment I have had in 8 years as a Pro mountain biker.

The Sumbanese cherish the culture of the horse. Used throughout society in racing, fighting, marriage and death.
It was a pleasure seeing the interactions of horse and rider over the past week.
Arrived at Six Senses Spa Hotel Missoni in Kuwait, and was treated to this article in RAW Magazine Feb/2013 issue!
Running, and walking, in the soft sand can greatly improve your ankle and hip stability. Begin with short efforts though! The increase in the activation of the stabilizing muscles can be quite high, and quickly result in an overuse injury if you are not careful. Allow your muscles time to adapt to the new stresses by adding some walking, or short runs, in the sand. Mix these sessions in a bit each week and pay close attention to any new tightness or fatigue in the muscles around the ankles and hips. Enjoy!

Early morning is a great time to get the body moving, especially with a running track, outdoor fitness course, and beautiful pool.
Another Article based on my interview with Aksam media in Turkey. Always a challenge in translation, but the word is spreading! Google Translate is enjoyable to read, but many times you must guess on the meaning of the sentences. (Turkish) http://www.aksam.com.tr/dokularin-sirrini-dokunarak-cozuyor–136068h.html
Instructors of Yoga and Pilates have a much greater risk of injury than their students. Instructors have learned to be aware of the limitations and difficulties of their students, but many may not recognize their own risk of injury. The problem lies, not in their ability but, in their risk of overuse.
Teaching schedules for many instructors can be as heavy as six hours per day. The demands of teaching can require much more muscular strength, and endurance, than would normaly be required in an individual’s daily personal practice.
Do to these teaching specific demands, I suggest that Instructors add additional strength and conditioning exercises at least twice a week. These additional workouts are for general strength and muscular endurance conditioning, to support the sometimes excessive physical demands of a Professional Instructor. As we all know, when your living depends on your physical ability to finish the job, many times we go beyond what is best for us individually!
Maintain your body and it will keep on working for you!
