Re: Rolls, Dizziness and Nausea

Hi, Brenda! Your sensible approach to your training remind me of a quote in a recent edition of "The Mirror" which said that we train with the bodies we have. You've been training all those years and you're enjoying what you're doing while honoring your limits. That's wonderful!

I, being stubborn and wilfull, am still pushing to discover which of my limits are non-negotiable (i.e., lousy hearing) and which are based in my fears (that looks like it's going to hurt), old opinions (I'm too old for this stuff) and so forth (if I lie here and moan, maybe I'll get more attention!)

By the way, the moan-for-attention ploy didn't work.

Your mental/visual focus should be forward through, and up/out of the roll as it finishes. Don't dive into the roll with your mental and visual focus pulled inward. A learning tool is to try to look at your belly button going into the beginning of the roll, then find the horizon in front of you asap, after your feet go over your head. Do not look down as you exit the roll this actually makes your head go through more rotation than your body goes through -- ie, you're extending the roll from the point of view of your inner ears.
Hey, Craig, thanks for the details about mental and visual focus going in and coming out of the rolls. I seem to come out of rolls with my eyes going in opposite directions.

I've written down your descriptions of the two pressure points and tried them while sitting here and breathing calmly. I'll try one or both next time I'm on the mat. Thanks a bunch!

Re: Rolls, Dizziness and Nausea

Ooh, ooh, ooh! Carol, I've just spent the last hour or so reading about the SCM and all those muscles and features I can't even pronounce. However, I think you have a winner here. Symptoms and pain patterns match, including years of tinnitus and the habit of a raised or forward-thrust chin posture. (I fight that last one constantly during Zen meditation!) I'll try the range of motion tests and the self-treatment stretches, etc.

I then checked the knee pain section and disappeared into the tests for all those muscles. Thanks for the outstanding resource for self-care and martial arts training! I see holiday gift suggestions...
