A review and commentary by Ajahn, Dr. Anthony B. James: Dean of the SomaVeda College of Natural Medicine


pelvic tensegrity

The reason may be Pelvic Tensegrity Instability.

What is Pelvic Tensegrity?

“In 1992 and again in 1995 World Congress an Low Back and Pelvic Pain the focus seemed to be the sacroiliac joint, its mechanics and its role in generating pain. There are several references to joint injection as the `gold Standard’ for diagnosis and for treatment. This need to stress joint pathology is rooted in the Newtonian concepts that the skeleton and its joints are the frame upon which the soft tissue hang, and the concept that pathology is a function of anatomical disease or injury.
On the other hand, tensegrity stresses that the bones of the skeleton are but compression elements `floating’ in a highly structures, self generating, hierarchical, integrated tension network of soft tissues.’3.” The ligaments, muscles and fascia take an a whole new importance and joint mechanics becomes soft tissue mechanics. This is consistent with the clinical observations of Mennell,’3 who stressed the play movement of joints as a necessary dynamic function and Trave11` who focused an the imbalance of tension of the muscles and fascia as a source
of musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. These works echoed the pioneering precepts of A.T. Still, Palmen and others who focused an the dynamic aspects of the musculoskeletal System rather than the anatomical pathology of the structures.” (

Why? Client Compliance and lack of proper, effective at home self care!

What does this mean and how to improve on long term issues either with or after a SomaVeda® Thai Yoga program? Rome was not built in a day! As beneficial as a full seven day+ SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Day Protocol or program is, it is NOT Magic! Many chronic pain issues develop over many years and are further complicated with both traumatic history of accidents and injuries, accumulated over time. Complicated with malnutrition and toxicities, years of inactivity and resulting atrophy, energy imbalances and more. We do eventually want to address all of these as they impact the specific clients pain and well being moving them towards recovery. However, today I want to bring attention to what the clients can and does have to do on their own behalf!

What the client themselves does in support of their own progress towards either reduced pain or pain free living is vital. Even after a full program and any where from 9 to 12 contact hours hands on… this pales in comparison to the twenty four/ seven lifestyle of the client for ether good or ill.

All pain clients have a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance! No matter what their diagnosis, “Vikruti” or elemental imbalance or body type. How? Why? One of the key indicators of a “Kapha Dosha” imbalance is IGNORANCE.  Ignorance of how the client themselves created the origin of the pain, the injury, the atrophy, the chronic inflammation, the poor medical or therapeutic choices which may not only not helped but made the pain worse. This includes relegating responsibility for their healing and wellness to institutional and or corporate medico’s who simply proscribed various drugs, steroids, opiates etc. for “pain management”, but which in the long term did not prove helpful.

Yes, the clients need help, need therapeutic program and intervention. However, they also need guidance in self maintenance and home practices which will educate them in support of their personal compliance routines… Where the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Therapeutic Program ends , the clients self work and compliance with the therapist counseling and recommendations begins!

The SomaVeda® T.A.E.L.R. (SomaVeda® Tool Assisted Energy Line Release) protocol extends the hands on Chirothesia or manual therapeutic hands on healing ministry with the use of adjuncts therapies and “tools”. One of the most important tools is to educate the client into what they can control, contribute and effectively do at home for themselves as the partner in the therapy.

Consider: Chronic Low Back Pain, Chronic Hip Pain?

More than these? Consider:

  • Nagging joint pains in your legs, lower back or hips
  • Walking with discomfort
  • Hips locking up
  • Bad posture
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Sluggishness in day to day life
  • High Anxiety
  • Digestive problems
  • Compromised Immune System
  • Circulatory issues
  • Loss of sexual performance
  • Lack of Explosiveness in the gym or sports

It’s not enough to know the clients needs to do their “home work” and self care, they need proper and sustained, detailed guidance on what to do and how to do it.

Your not going to be with them at home, so we need a home study program that targets the issue. You the SomaVeda® Thai Yoga Certified Practitioner, Therapist, Minister or Physician do your amazing part. Refer your client (also yourself if your the one with the chronic pain!) to Critical Bench for an amazing program.

Have you heard about Hip Flexors?

Hip Flexors are long muscles in the body and the only muscle that connects the upper body and lower body, also known as the psoas (pronounced so-az). (What are the Hip Flexors?) These muscles are unique in how they connect the torso and abdomen with the legs!

Your psoas…
…stabilize your trunk and spine during movement and sitting
…allow you to bend your hips and legs towards your chest
…support your internal organs
…is connected to your diaphragm which allows you to walk and breathe.
In other words, your psoas has a direct influence on your fight or flight response!

If the psoas get tight and weak, it can be a real pain but working certain muscles and doing the certain exercise combinations provide easy fixes. CLICK HERE for At Home Self Fix Program!
