So many things to be said about the respiratory diaphragm... 🧐
Vital pump not only for the lungs and for breathing mechanisms, but also to the heart and abdominal Aorta, Vena Cava and many more blood vessels.💓
The lymphatic duct and Oesophagus also benefit from this pumping mechanism as they pass through this tendinous but muscular structure. 💆♂️
Many important nerves also pass through this for example the vagus nerve, Phrenic nerve, the sympathetic chain ganglion and just under is celiac plexus ... 🧘♀️
Muscles like the QL, Spoas, ... and many organs attach to it or by ligamentous connections.
It also directly attach to ribs, spine and xiphoid process ☠
Now just imagine the vast effects of this muscle being under torsion, tension or even being too lax. It's like a drum or a piston not doing a proper job ... 🤯🤓 #osteopathy #structurefunction #causeandeffect #respiratorydiaphragm #pump #vitalplayer #rootcause #classical #immagine #health #healthybody #selfcare #breathing #osteopathyworks #osteonaturel #ottawa #westboro

This little unicorn is loving the sun!
Please, I’m begging, no more snow or ice or below 10 degrees.
I always have this burning need to belong to someone. Can’t feel good about myself unless I’m someone’s.
I like being owned.
I know, my balcony is a mess.

Sunshine in a glass! ☀️✨💕There is one more week to enjoy this month’s Community Smoothie - supporting Daffodil month in partnership with @canadiancancersocietynwo
. This smoothie is a blend of mango | banana | fresh-pressed orange juice | ginger | turmeric | coconut milk! Every glass sold supports initiatives of the Ottawa chapter of the Canadian Cancer society during the month of April. Did you know that last year in Ottawa, their volunteers drove almost 1000 patients and made 12,000 trips to medical appointments. In the province of Ontario last year our drivers drove patients the equivalent of 26 times to the moon and back! Cheers to community and health! #purelife2018 #purekitchenottawa
SUNDAY FORM DAY 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 **Close Grip Pulldowns** 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽———————————————————————
1. Sit @ pulldown station with desired bar attached to pulley (I like the v bar for this)
2. Adjust the knee pad to fit your height (this prevents your body from being raised by the copious amount of weight you’re about to BEAST 😜)
3. Grab your bar with a neutral grip (palms facing each other) stick your chest out & lean back very SLIGHTLY
4. While keeping your torso stationary, PULL down from your back as your squeeeeeze your shoulder blades until your chest almost touches the bar. Make sure to exhale as you execute this motion ———————————————————————
5. Stay in the contracted position for 1-2 seconds then bring the bar back to starting position as you breathe in. ———————————————————————
**Avoid using a weight that’s too heavy for you!! ☠️ If you need to swing your torso to get the bar to your chest the weight is TOO heavy for you. ————— 👉🏽Lighten it up & think about the form in order to prevent injury & engage the correct muscles in this exercise** Xoxo
Rest days are so important not just to give your body time to recover, but to help you become fitter and stronger. Focus on getting enough sleep, staying hydrated and stretching!
