#124 Missy Bunch – Special Ways To Reduce Pain #hlews

Goality Fitness Radio

We have a super knowledgeable personal trainer with us today. His name is Missy Bunch.  We will be talking about special ways to reduce pain.Dancing since the age of three, I developed my deep fascination with the human body at a very young age. I am a certified personal trainer and movement coach who has instructed countless boot camp classes, semi-private group classes, and private personal training clients. After years of battling personal injuries, I was left feeling frustrated and hopeless; worried nothing else could be done to heal me. By fate, in 2010, I had a session with a Z-Health trainer and my knee pain was gone and never came back. I knew I wanted to teach this approach to the world. So over the next several years I completed many courses, intense testing and training, to become one of the few master trainers in the world. The importance of brain function and using the nervous system to rapidly “debug” movement patterns, decrease pain and increase performance has lead me teach and create lightning-fast improvements with people from all walks of life. My specialties include injury prevention, injury rehabilitation, joint mobility and decreasing pain, holistically.In the last several years my focus has shifted to traveling the country to teach the importance of movement to small and large companies, educating people on the human body as a whole integrated system.email:missy@missybunchfitness.comFB:https://www.facebook.com/Missy-Bunch-Fitness-Page-178419772237334/free movement videos: deathofthedesk.com For additional podcast from Healthy Living With Eric Su visit www.ericwsu.com/podcasts.   Remember, Eric Su’s FREE Results Coaching Strategy session: www.ericwsu.com/freecoachingcall Watch Eric Su on Facebook Live.  Visit www.facebook.com/ericwsutrainer every Friday at 9:30am CST.
