1. Knots aren’t really in the muscle—they’re in the nerve.
2. Your body is intelligent—it knows what it needs to do—help it get out of its own way.
3. Focus on realigning the body.
4. Keep your mind and body supple.
5. Correct problems by embracing the problem—it seems counterintuitive but sometimes it’s the easiest way.
