Right Now Are you Holding the Belly In?

In the last blog we talked about the connection between your diaphragm and pelvic floor and how they should work as a pump system to create a stable and mobile middle – your bodies foundations. We then looked into what happens if you hold your stomach in. You stop this system working and other areas of your body have to do the work (compensate). This can lead to pain in neck, shoulders, hips, lower back, digestive problems, constipation, bladder leakages. All sorts of problems you might not initially have thought as being related, that is until you look a little deeper and start asking HOW and WHY have these problems come about. All linked to holding in the belly and breathing from your chest. Truly amazing, I know!

I’ve incorporated a link to my podcast on ‘Holding in your belly’ this was one of my favourite radio shows where we talked about the WHY’s HOW’s and WHAT IF’s of holding your belly in. How linking our brain and body we can stop holding our stomachs in. For a lot there is an emotional belief to not looking fat that keeps this holding in habit going. Letting go can be easier said than done. We look again at why you can get pain from holding your stomach in when Ironically we often believe we are helping by making ourselves stronger. https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/elle-williams/episodes/2018-04-06T04_22_27-07_00

KNOWLEDGE is POWER when ACTION is taken!


"I'm at the end of a long hard journey that I couldn't have taken without you and your wonderful knowledge - I haven't stopped blubbing since I got home - that breathing thing has made me feel like I've let go of something that's been keeping me down and I'm so so eternally grateful."

Business owner (Once held back by major neck surgery)

"Truly amazing! Ellies knowledge of the mind and body knows no bounds."

Mum (Once a hip pain sufferer)

"I am so impressed by the amount of mobility I regained so quickly. A set of well structured small achievable moves relieved a huge amount of pressure from my back. My issues were cumulative and had reached a point where I was struggling to move."

Accountant (Back pain was stopping her move let alone run)

"Ellie quickly assessed my whole body, my body’s history and posture and saw problems that I wasn’t aware of. These were causing the pain and most likely all the other previous ailments I had, all on my left side."

Business Owner (Once had long term hip and knee problems)

"I highly recommend Ellie, don’t wait until all other options have failed, go to her first. She will give you an honest answer about any pain in your body."

Business Owner (Once suffered with neck, back, knee problems)

"First time in so many years I have no back pain, it's such an amazing feeling and I love working with her."
