Neck Pain & Overwhelm

Neck Pain and Overwhelm!

You are NOT your body’s pain, but it can sure feel like it when pain strikes!

Neck pain is often a precursor to other physical pain because it forms the narrow intersection between mind and body. As your mind gets busier, stimuli through this narrow intersection gets flooded.

Headaches, moodiness, shoulder and back pain follow, and ultimately upset your job performance AND upend personal pleasures.

Your ambitious; you don’t want to slow down!

But you often have no choice. Your neck pain reverberates through your whole being. You’re overwhelmed!

WHAT you’re doing doesn’t need to change as much as HOW you’re doing it. Discover the power of your breath.

Breathe space back into your neck… between your bones, muscles AND thoughts. Breathe yourself into alignment.

I’m Tammy Wise, a mind body strength expert. I’ve helped 100’s of ambitious professionals and artists find Relaxed Strength, using alignment, breath, meditation and strength training.

I’m not talking about individual disciplines, but ONE discipline that unifies physical, emotional and mental mastery. ONE discipline that aligns mind, body and Spirit!

Time Out New York voted me Best of Fitness TWICE, because New Yorkers don’t have time for pain. And neither do you!

Redefining Strength

I want to change our perception of strength. Strength is the ability to meet resistance and influence an outcome without compromising ourselves. And we already have it.

Strength is not an attribute; it’s a state of being. Gladiators, bodybuilders, and football players demonstrate strength through brute force, sheer willpower, muscle mass, and relentless pursuit. But we’re also quick to identify dancers and martial artists as strong. Their medium taps into a sense of vulnerability, balance, alignment, controlled power, and grace—but no one can deny their strength. Strength may look different on each of us, but it is an inherent part of who we are.

You are not weak by nature; you are stronger than you think. Your strength is not something you need to kill yourself to gain—it is already within you, waiting to be excavated. The key is to stop chasing something you already have and tap into it, so you can manifest that strength in your everyday life.

Because we don’t think we’re strong, we approach resistance with the idea that we’re not enough. We throw everything we have at it and push past our physical, mental, and emotional limitations. We see strength as domination, but it’s not.

When you learn to listen to your body’s divine wisdom, you cultivate a sense of where your body is developing tension instead of standing in its strength. You end the vicious cycle of unrealistic expectations, injury, and self-criticism and learn how to consciously embrace responsible growth. You stop compartmentalizing your strength into emotional, physical, and mental pieces and operate from the strength of your being at all times.

You learn how to align yourself with gravity—instead of working against it—so you can channel your strength to meet life’s resistance. As you meet resistance with equal parts power and alignment, you transform tension into strength

As in the sword dance above, the power lies in bringing just the right amount of force—not too little and not too much. By meeting the sword’s weight, I meet gravity. I am tapped into a larger source of energy, free of tension, and discover a strength that is wholly and uniquely mine.
