The world’s top athletes and performers are the embodiment of self-discipline, hyper-focus, and a spirited approach to every challenge. Training day-in and day-out, they carry on through rigorous practice schedules toward the ultimate pursuit of greatness with unwavering determination.
It’s common knowledge that to be the best-of-the-best takes unparalleled devotion to one’s craft and a lesser-known key to optimal performance is the intimate understanding of one’s physical self as a means to discover how to release trauma trapped in the body; otherwise known as stagnant energy.
So, what exactly is Stagnant Energy?
Stagnant energy is the accumulation of occurrences such as past trauma or more innately human thought patterns such as anger and fear. Tapping into our instincts, we approach danger with a fight-or-flight response; giving us the option to either attack, run away, or simply freeze in place. All of these reactions are normal but they still register within the brain as a traumatic experience. The brain creates images, feelings, and sensations that appear as ‘alarms’ when faced with potentially challenging encounters. It is human nature to physically hold on to these traumatic experiences, which translates into stagnant energy revealed through physical ailments such as poor posture, skeletal misalignment, joint and muscle stiffness, muscle spasms, decreased range of motion, impaired mobility and flexibility, as well as restricted breathing.
Why is it Important to Release Stagnant Energy?
Whether experienced through trapped emotions, energy blocks, or physical ailments, stagnant energy propels our nervous system into a constant state of stress and anxious alertness; ultimately hindering our full potential.
As a top athlete or performer, you are committed to doing whatever it takes to be the best. Your drive and unforgiving determination defines who you are as you wholeheartedly give yourself to your career. To gain an intimate understanding of your physical self and make way for the next step in your success, it is essential to release emotions stored in your body parts and reset your nervous system to a state of balance for ultimate performance and career longevity – a task that is much easier said than done.
