Books and Writing
Sticks and Stones is an ebook containing 50+ analogies and stories pertaining to pain and movement! This resource was created by Dr. Jim Heafner PT, DPT, OCS and Dr. Jarod Hall PT, DPT, OCS to help people gain a deeper understanding of the complex nature of pain.
It is our hope this book will reframe the way you understand pain and change the language you use when talking to others about movement and injury!
Yoga is medicine for most people. It provides immense physical and mental benefits that are unmeasurable. But, what if the movements in your practice were actually causing harm and creating repetitive patterns that increase your risk of injury.
This book combines the physical therapy and movement expertise of Dr. Heafner with the skillfulness of yoga teacher Keith Allen. The Yoga Fix takes readers through 40+ poses, identifying both the Eastern and Western approaches to the practice.
