Do any of you know anything about a bioimpedance analysis? I had one done today and I'm just wondering what you know about

There are different ones, some more accurate than others but I don't think any of them are that accurate. It makes a big difference on what you've been doing, how hydrated you are. Basically, it sends electrical signals through your body and measures how quickly the signals travel. The idea behind it is it travels more slowly through muscle than fat.

It actually all sounds awesome to me. If we all had that many specialists, we'd have far fewer problems. You want to take care of all the little stuff before it becomes big stuff!

At this point I have to admit I'm pretty impressed because of the staff. I know it may sound shallow but even the older woman who was in charge of billing looked really good. Everyone seemed to have some spunk in their step, looked like they'd all spent a little time practicing what they were preaching, and were all smiling and pleasant. I had to laugh when I read your post on the other board about trying not to stare at the woman in your yoga class because when I met the trainer I couldn't believe how great she looked and I probably spent too much time checking out her physique. Other than too dark a tan she looked absolutely perfect.

I figure obviously I need to try something different and I'm shocked at how affordable this is. If I can really manage this condition with some lifestyle changes and no costly drugs or surgeries

I think it's important for people in that setting to be fit and healthy.

Why didn't the pt like massages?

She said that if I relied on the massages, that I wouldn't get the biofeedback loop needed to completely change the way I sit, stand, walk, do anything.

I guess that makes sense but she's got to understand that sometimes you just want to get rid of the pain!

I have been hard on my body the past year just out of sheer pride and now I am paying the price. I got caught up in the thrill of being able to do some things I never thought possible and I may have pushed myself to hard. After spending the past few weeks in pain and exhaustion I'm ready to get grounded in reality again.

How interesting about the massage. They recommended massage but it was extra from the "package".

At this time I am mostly working on various stretches (I am not a flexible person so this is a total new challenge for me) and was told to do my core workouts using the stability ball (ugg-not my favorite thing). I have some kind of attitude towards the ball I really need to get over. lol They also told me use lighter weights and stick more to circuit training.
