Emotion is energy in motion. That stuck energy can get trapped in vulnerable areas of our body and show up as pain or dysfunction. Isn’t that crazy? We all assume we must have an injury to have body pain, but in so many cases an imbalanced gut, nutrient deficiencies, and even stored trauma and unprocessed emotions can have their hand in body aches and pains. The physical body is always trying to release emotion; if we don’t express it, that energy gets stuck in our joints, tissues, and organs—and stagnates within the body.
I explore these topics in my past interviews with Dr. Shalini Bhat, Dr. John Amaral, and Lauren Roxburgh.
Dr. Shalini Bhat is a chiropractor and double certified Functional Medicine Practitioner with over 10 years of experience in the wellness field. She is the founder of The Movement Boutique, the designer of multiple virtual Functional Medicine programs, and the creator of The Perfect FIIT (a signature workout) and TMB FIIX (a unique treatment method using fascial release, movement, and acupuncture techniques). In her private practice, her treatments and programs focus on providing patients with actionable road-maps to moving, feeling, and looking their best using all her tools, from fascia and movement, to hormones and gut health. Dr. Bhat works with people who have been told they’re “normal” by their doctors, yet feel “off” (bloating, low energy etc.). She cuts through the noise and fads to bring you the most relevant, Functional Medicine testing and scientific research for your body, your mind, and your microbiome.
Dr. John Amaral is a chiropractor, author, and educator who has worked behind-the-scenes helping A-List celebrities, entrepreneurs, athletes, influencers and thought-leaders elevate their energy so that they feel and perform their best. Dr. Amaral helps his clients self-heal physical injuries; reduce stress, anxiety, and depression; and stay in the energetic flow amidst the challenges of everything from running enterprises to pushing the envelope of human performance. He is also the founder of Body Centered Leadership, a program that combines cutting-edge neuroscience, quantum physics principles, and ancient wisdom practices to help participants create and sustain new levels of energy, clarity, and fulfillment. Dr. Amaral is featured in the recent GOOP Lab Netflix series with Gwyneth Paltrow.
Lauren Roxburgh is a board-certified Structural Integration practitioner, author, speaker, educator, and corporate presenter, frequently dubbed “The Body Whisperer.” Lauren is the go-to writer and expert on all things fascia, alignment, and movement medicine, and regularly works with Hollywood’s A-List along with some of the greatest athletes and orthopedic surgeons on the planet. Named the “Body Alignment Pro” by Vogue, Lauren has also been listed as one of the 16 Women in Wellness to Watch in 2019 by Chalkboard Magazine. She’s also the founder of the Aligned Tribe Community, the virtual Aligned Life Studio, and the creator of the signature Aligned Healing Tools.
