Which of Two Pains


Is pain good or bad? Bad because it HURTS! But, without pain, how do we know something’s wrong? Or, how would we know we’re making progress?


Does it depend on what kind of pain?


“Bad” pain depresses optimal health.

The pain of not stretching leads to muscle tension & arthritis. The pain of not exercising results in instability & low energy. The pain of poor diet causes weight problems & dis-eases. The pain of insufficient sleep develops immune system deficiencies. The pain of poor body care leads to structural problems.


“Good” pain enhances optimal health.

The pain of stretching to increasing flexibility. The pain of exercising improving strength & stamina. The pain of eating well making conscious choices. The pain of scheduling regular body care. 


The pain of inconvenience is the time & effort put forth. You can procrastinate on the inconveniences of health. But, beware for the inconveniences of poor health!


You have the power to choose! You have the power to create change!

Treating Sciatica

Warning: Traffic Drivers

Here on Oahu traffic is a part of daily life. Whether it's a 30 minute upwards to an hour or hour and a half, it's adding sitting time to your day!
Sciatica is a common condition that affects many that have to sit in traffic on top of sitting at work! It is recognized as a pain that begins in the buttocks area, often on one side, that radiates down into the glute (buttocks) and down the back of the leg. It's literally a "pain in the butt"!

Pain Proof your Commute

Here on Oahu traffic is unfortunately inevitable! Here are tips to consider to prevent or reduce back pain from your driving:


1. Empty back pocket - Mostly for men; remove wallet from back pocket to avoid tilting hips and straining lower back.


2. Posture in - Try to avoid bending from the spine when getting into your vehicle.


3. Adjust seat back angle - Set angle at a comfortable position where the ears, shoulders, and hips are in alignment.
