First Ever HIV+ Restaurant Is Ready To Open For Business | Squawker

Casey House, (the first and only stand-alone hospital for people with AIDS/HIV) Tweeted an invitation to anyone willing to put their lives on the line. Perhaps that’s a bit dramatic, but surly I’m not alone in feeling discomforted. Their Tweet reads:

Join Matt Basile and his team of HIV positive cooks at the first- ever HIV positive eatery! 

Of course, following the tweet was the hashtag #SmashStigma. It costs $125 to eat at this restaurant who only employs those who are HIV positive. So here’s your choice: either A) pay your electric bill, or B) feel really uncomfortable in Canada in the name of “social justice.” Hmmm, such difficult decisions…

On a more serious note, the “stigma” is there for a reason. Until recently, you couldn’t just knowingly spread this life threatening disease without consequencesNow, it’s like a badge of honor, something to flaunt and carry with pride. Christian Hui Tweeted this:

Why is he honored to have an incurable disease? What about that makes him proud? Does he get +5 oppression points, or something? Here is a link to the site. View it at your own risk. 

Do you support this event? Why or why not? Let me know in the comments, on Facebook, or on Twitter.

Can Pilates Help with Carpal Tunnel Symptoms? It’s More Than just the Wrist!

Ah, “Carpal Tunnel.” You likely know a fair number of people who say that they have the symptoms (tingling and/or numbness) or even had the surgery.

I often teach modified Pilates to people with injuries and spinal conditions (like Scoliosis, for example), but I’m excited to also be working with a client/friend who recently wrote to me and asked:

“Can Pilates help with my Carpal Tunnel?”

and,

“Can I do anything else besides surgery?”

I gave her the short answer: Well not from a group class in “regular” Pilates

but yes, it’s possible to improve if your Pilates Teacher also happens to be a Massage Therapist or Physical Therapist. The teacher needs to have an advanced knowledge of Anatomy and Kinesiology. Classical Pilates training tends not to teach any of that and just go over standardized exercises. Some of the modern Pilates methods focus on Anatomy/Kinesiology, and the ones who do tend to attract P.T.s and others in the healing arts. And a growing number of Pilates teachers seek out additional knowledge once certified. But when it comes to something specialized like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, your best bet is to find someone who is also in a therapeutic field such as Massage Therapy or Physical Therapy.\

That was enough for my friend to book an appointment and see what this was all about.

The Medical viewpoint on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is fairly straight-forward. Let’s take a look at a well-respected source, the Mayo Clinic: Physicians say that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome involves a compressed nerve in your wrist. Tell-tale symptoms (such as tingling and numbness in the fingers) are often noticed when gripping (for example, holding your phone), and doing repetitive movements of the fingers/hands/wrists such as typing. To diagnose this condition, Doctors test your muscle strength and sense of feeling in the fingers. They might also order some diagnostic tests such as an Electromyogram, to assess your muscles and nerves. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/carpal-tunnel-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20355603; https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/emg/basics/definition/prc-20014183

It’s important to note that you should not diagnose yourself – nor should your Pilates teacher or Massage therapist. Only your Physician can do this.

Conventional Medical treatments for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are somewhat limited. You’ll likely be advised to avoid activities that aggravate your symptoms. And generally, you’d be considering splints, cortisone shots, medications, and surgery – which generally involves severing a ligament in the wrist. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/carpal-tunnel-syndrome/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20355608

Whether you elect surgery, that is between you and your Physician. Before doing so, I recommend that you do your own research on what to expect after surgery, including the time it may take to recover – and it’s a great idea to get feedback from friends and colleagues who have had the procedure. Also, it’s important for you to define what it means to have a successful result.

Now we have reached that proverbial million dollar question: Does Carpal Tunnel Surgery “Work?” It depends on whom you’re asking – the Surgeon? Or the Patient? Results vary, and long-term results speak volumes. So again, the more information you have, the more you can manage your expectations.

I don’t mean to scare you, but…

Apparently, symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Sydrome eventually return to 85% of people who have had the surgery – and many people have repeat surgeries despite Physicians claiming high success rates. https://www.mycarpaltunnel.com/carpal-tunnel-surgery-success-rate.shtml

Apparently Physicians consider the surgery successful if there is “ANY improvement” after surgery (at least according to that linked article above). Does that mean a 25% improvement? This I don’t know – it’s certainly something to ask your Surgeon.

The Medical community knows that their claimed success rate of 75-90% needs to be more thoroughly evaluated, especially for long-term success rates. The American Association of Hand Surgery publishes an intriguing report stating that, “Resolution of symptoms and recovery of function after CTR have not been as thoroughly addressed in the long-term as they have in the short-term.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3418353/

What is a successful result to the Patient? Most of us want our pain gone or significantly improved, right? We’d like to not have to wear that splint or worry about finding a new career, or giving up our favorite sport. The fact is, that nobody can guarantee a result.

So, I’m not telling you NOT to have that surgery – you might be pleased with the result. It’s possible to work with you even after having the surgery. You’ll just have to make sure that your Physician clears the activity and provides any restrictions or special directions.

The next million dollar question is: What are alternatives to surgery; and can I do these things after surgery? I’ve listed a few options to explore:

1. Specialized, advanced massage techniques. I attended an amazing training in Haase Myotherapy which has a protocol for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, among others. Indeed – Robert Haase said in our training that so many of his clients CANCELED their carpal tunnel surgeries after working with him, that a local Surgeon came to visit. I can offer this therapy to my clients, as a Licensed Massage Therapist (MAT#6286) who is also Board Certified by NCBTMB (307766-00). https://www.haasemyotherapy.com/

2. Laser Therapy: I use the laser for different reasons, with my awesome Chiropractor, Dr. Paul Thurlow. Recently, I asked if his Laser would help with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – even for someone who has had an unsuccessful surgery. Dr. Thurlow told me that it’s possible to get a 70% improvement in symptoms according to research. At any rate, you can also see in his website some statistics with the laser therapy. http://lasertherapyhawaii.com/

3. Therapeutic Movement and Breathing. This is where I integrate a highly modified type of Pilates exercise with Osteopathic Sciences and gentle hands-on therapy that my massage license allows. www.lahelafit.com.

While the Physician is focused on the hands and wrist, I like to point out things that he/she is not noticing:

1. Your Posture and how it affects tension in the neck and shoulder. How people sit, stand and move – that’s an integral part of my practice. Can you reach the top shelf easily? Do you slouch at your desk all day? Do you shrug your shoulders while tapping away at your laptop or moving your mouse? Or – egads – try to hold your phone between your ear and shoulder while trying to work with your hands? Do you sleep on your belly?

Why would any of that matter for the wrist? Well, it does. I show you why. I look for things that can be improved and show you how that is possible, with repetition and time.

2. Full, healthy, and functional BREATHING makes a world of difference and can help you improve your posture, flexibility, mobility, and affects you from head to toe and from hand to foot. I can quickly show you how different it feels to breathe fully, compared to the shallow and tension-filled breathing that many of us unknowingly have (I sure had it for years before discovering Osteopathic Sciences).

Quick rant about “regular” Pilates: This discipline often teaches improper breathing. If you’re a Pilates fanatic already, you likely have heard your teacher exhorting you to “suck in the belly, belly button to spine;” “feel as if you’re in between two panes of glass,” and maybe “exhale through pursed lips.” I’m sorry to disappoint you, but it’s quite dysfunctional. Not all Pilates methods do this type of breathing, but many thousands of teachers were trained this way, especially if we trained at least 10 years ago.

Perhaps you’ve seen a little teaser article about Breathing in an earlier publication? I guarantee that I’ll be writing more about Breathing in my website. Stay tuned!

I also teach people a bit of anatomy, especially their nerves, in a way that’s easy to digest. You know – I’m not sure why Doctors wouldn’t realize why the collar bone is such an important thing to notice, and how it applies to breathing, posture, and pain (or relief from pain). Are you curious? Good – stay tuned for more on that, as well.

More than anything – A proper Pilates session focuses on improving your every day posture and habits – especially your Breathing. Imagine how often you breathe – on average 22,000 times per day. Imagine how many times you use your hands, in conjunction with your arm and shoulder. I can’t even begin to count. Now imagine if we can improve bit by bit, those things that we do often, every day. Add it up. Then you can get a picture of how you get started in relieving your aches and pains. For me as a Pilates teacher, a successful result is if you walk away feeling taller, more flexible, and with less pain (perhaps none at all).

It’s been my adamant position, ever since massage school almost 20 years ago, that Carpal Tunnel involves a lot more than just the wrist. I look forward to writing more and staying in touch with you all. Please do visit my website and shoot me an email!

Resolving Chronic Pain Without Meds – Change Your Breathing.

I want to talk about pain. Chances are, you have some chronic pain that pops up every now and then or has been sticking with you. And whether you have Scoliosis or not –

chances are, your chronic pain is due to imbalances in your joints, muscles, and connective tissues. My question to you is this: would you like to solve the root problem or just mask the problem?

Taking pain meds – that’s a slippery slope. Especially for chronic pain. While it may be useful for a (very) short-term, acute condition (like post-surgery) the risk of getting addicted to pain meds looms. We’ve got a crisis in the United States.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/06/us/opioid-crisis-epidemic.html. Plus – wouldn’t you know it – taking pain meds can make pain worse. http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2016/05/why-taking-morphine-oxycodone-can-sometimes-make-pain-worse. And there are a litany of side-effects. https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/06/26/the-problem-with-pain-pills/

I’d like to offer you a ray of hope: One-on-one Pilates lessons (and after that, very small classes like duets and trios) are very effective for addressing chronic pain. Because you’re changing the way you use your body: changing your posture and habitual movements; strengthening chronically weak muscles, and stretching chronically tight muscles. It is important to have that one-on-one, at least to start, in order to get that eagle eye attention on your alignment and movements. And with me, you change your Breath. I have to be honest here: my breathing style is very unlike typical Pilates breathing. My alignment cues are often different too, because my work is based in Osteopathic Sciences.

Breathing, you say?

back painWhat’s so important about breathing? Isn’t it something we do without needing any help? Breathe in, breathe out?

Ah – this is where I would like to say, that most of us have developed faulty breathing habits. And faulty breathing produces a body which is less flexible, less adaptable to the pressures of gravity, and more.

What starts changing our breathing habits? Posture, absolutely. Think of what affects your chronic posture: Sitting at a desk for hours upon days upon years comes to mind. Wearing high heels also does this (sad but true). Your sport of choice, especially if it’s one-sided like golf or tennis definitely affects your posture. Always wearing your handbag on one side affects your posture. This all affects your breathing.

And – sorry ladies – Wearing tight waistbands, corseted clothing, and keeping the tummy sucked in to look more slender affects breathing. This leads to a body which is less flexible, less adaptable to the pressures of gravity, and less able to take a deep breath. In our industrialized world, we have become conditioned to be shallow breathers. It’s time to change that.

Well, okay, that’s all great, but you live in Hawaii, Lahela. What now? Well, I’ll be working on some podcasts and webinars. For now, can I leave you with this exercise to develop?

Start breathing naturally again. Look at little kids. Notice how they fill their tummies when they breathe. We need to do this. Fill your tummy! Let your belly button pooch out! Why? Because when you breathe this way, you’re fully using your Diaphragm, which is the main muscle of breathing. Because when you do this, you are also allowing your internal organs to move around. Because when you do this, you’ll allow your lungs to fully fill. Because when you do this, you’re actually helping your spine. There’s a lot more WHY here. But I’ll save more for later.

Breathing differently affects my spine?

Yes. It does.

Try this exercise out. I can’t take credit for it, I’ve just been using it for a couple of decades. Take a clock or stopwatch. Time it for one minute. Count how many breaths you take in one minute. Now try it again and consciously slow it down. It may take a few tries – see if you can get yourself to take no more than 4 inhales and 4 exhales in one minute. Or as close to it as you can get. I’m betting that you notice a lot of great effects from this.

Lahela’s Spine Class: A Therapeutic Workout, taking Pilates to a New Level

This is the trite and out-dated image of Pilates Class: A group of fashionable housewives trying to attain Hollywood figures – or a bunch of hotties in spandex that a certain pop star sung about 15 years ago. And something about sucking in the belly while trying to do back-bends – which fails to work with the non-Ballerina and doesn’t even make biomechanical sense anyway.

This is the new and developing face of Pilates: A therapeutic workout tailored for spinal conditions; chronic pain; athletic injuries; even pre-surgery and post-Physical Therapy. Backed by ever-developing Sciences which have surely changed since Joseph Pilates started teaching almost a century ago – such as Osteopathics, Physiotherapy, and Kinesiology.

Pilates is embraced by Physicians, Physiotherapists, Physical Therapists, and Chiropractors for its therapeutic effects. And they also send me referrals. I’m here to show the world that Change IS Possible for the spine. It’s My Story. (https://holistictherapiesdirectory.com/account/articles/edit/27358ce6b8062d528950d8c4cb5e741b)

In short: I was diagnosed with Scoliosis at age 10 and told that there was nothing I could do about it. It took until age 40 to prove the Doctor incorrect, but that’s okay. I’m overjoyed every day. It took years of studying the Sciences behind it, and working with my own body before my initial Pilates organization even had a protocol for Scoliosis. And now, I love showing people how to get started, by handing them the tools to get there. I do this through a highly modified Pilates session, blended with Osteopathic Sciences; specialty exercises learned from my Physiotherapist, and therapeutic massage techniques. Besides being certified by the Pilates Method Alliance and STOTT PILATES, I am Board Certified through NCBTMB (307766-00) and have a state license to practice massage therapy (MAT#6286).

You may have seen some of my other blog articles on Scoliosis Management, which I have offered in occasional workshops. (https://www.lahelafit.com/site/adf94e32c833410b884a11a006e6dea4/my-scoliosis-management-workshop?preview=true). This is the first time that I’m offering a weekly class, and its populated with a number of regular clients who have seen me for years. Our first class debuted on September 21, 2017 at a lovely boutique studio called Kailua Pilates and Wellness Center, on Oahu.

This isn’t just a Scoliosis class, however regular clients have other issues too, such as Spondylolisthesis – a forward-slippage of a vertebra. http://www.webmd.com/back-pain/tc/spondylolisthesis-topic-overview

Some have not been diagnosed with any spinal issue but do have hip imbalances – and they simply find that my therapeutic blend of Pilates, Osteopathic Sciences, and Therapeutic Massage techniques make them feel better. And yes, we use props, which tend to fly off the shelves.

And for those of you who have experienced Pilates before, this will definitely strike you as being very different from what you have seen at the gym or studio, or in a typical workout video. I have changed even the Breathing technique, based on what I learned from Osteopathic Sciences, as well as Eastern practices, about what healthy breathing actually looks like. And I have also taken out dysfunctional physical cues. Spoiler alert: If you’re used to constantly sucking in the belly, even as you inhale, you’ll be surprised to see how much better you can move, and how much more supported you feel, when you change this.

That’s really my joy – if someone walks out saying, I feel so much better!

I do want to make clear, that there is no such thing as a quick-fix or overnight miracle cure. Especially for chronic pain, an athletic injury, or a spinal condition. Changing the body happens incrementally and requires daily application – you wouldn’t go from a couch potato to running a Marathon in one day, would you? You have to re-train your muscles and nervous system. In order to do that, you also have to understand what your body is doing TODAY, and why it’s doing that. Another Spolier-alert: Changing the spine requires changing many other things, including in your hips and feet. And from personal experience, you do get the best results from one-on-one sessions – it’s really necessary to begin with that, because that’s where you get your fundamentals, and a workout tailored for your body/mind.

Okay, you’re probably thinking, well that sounds wonderful, IF I was living in Hawaii or able to travel out there. What about the rest of us living far away? I will be developing distance learning as well, and I look forward to meeting more of you.

With Aloha,

Lahela

Seagram building new restaurant the pool nyc

Seagram building new restaurant the pool nyc

The Seagram Building’s culinary renaissance continues with the Pool, the latest restaurant to open in the iconic space once occupied by the Four Seasons restaurant. Now operated by Major Food Group, the it-restaurateurs behind Carbone, this multi-tiered dining complex is already home to the Grill, a steakhouse opened in May. The Pool, by contrast, focuses on seafood, with top-tier varieties like halibut, Montauk striped bass, and Portuguese turbot hand-selected by executive chef and Major Food Group cofounder Rich Torrisi, who was once named one of Food & Wine‘s Best New Chefs.

Once you’ve taken in the original Phillip Johnson-designed interiors and artwork by Alexander Calder, start your evening with one of the bar’s carefully formulated cocktails. The Cucumber, made with absinthe, lime and cane sugar, pairs perfectly with the raw bar’s catches of the day, from prawns and oysters to sashimi. Or, to truly channel the restaurant’s opulent pedigree, go for the menu’s most prized caviar, the golden osetra.

For a main course, the Dover sole is the showstopper, served deboned with a simple yet flavorful butter and parsley sauce and a spritz of lemon. And with the Pool’s encyclopedic wine list, from 200-year-old varieties to an indulgent Chteau d’Yquem, there are plenty of nightcaps to choose from. But don’t leave before dessert: the layered coconut cream with pink grapefruit and matcha or chocolate custard make perfect endings to this fine dining extravaganza.
