Have you ever noticed that when you’re stressed out your shoulders feel more tight than usual?

Or that your jaw tension is through the roof when you have a stressful presentation coming up?

It’s no big surprise to know that stress, pain, and tension are connected – that what happens in your body and what’s going on in your brain is connected by a two-way street.

And while we may know that on an intellectual level, actually doing something about it is an entirely different story.

In this episode, I’m joined by licensed therapist Natalie Moore who blends holistic modalities like mindfulness, somatic psychology and breathwork into her work.

And after a number of deep conversations while hiking the mountains around Los Angeles, I wanted to share her brilliance with you too.

Today’s episode is for you if you feel like you’ve tried all the things for your pain and nothing seems to help (or you just want to continue to learn how to maximize your health).
