The mission of WIT (Wellness Integration Tools) is to empower people to heal their bodies and live better through education and the use of soft-tissue release tools.
The Status Quo:
People on a whole are disconnected from their physical bodies.
Throw in 14-18 hours (at work and home) per day of repetitive movements (sitting, typing, texting, bending, lifting, standing, etc) and poor posture.
Add in a bit of stress, poor nutrition, and lack of sleep.
Finish with a non-fascia friendly work and home environment.
Repetitive strain due to lack of body awareness and immobile restricted fascial and muscle tissue.
Chronic pain, inflammation, injury, disease, illness
Increased sick days
Increased workers compensation claims
We need to shift to a culture of prevention and self-healing.
It’s time to empower people to take charge of their own well-being. Employers are responsible for providing a safe, ergonomically correct, and hopefully enriching work environment. However, no one can be inside of your body, telling you to shift positions when your low back starts to hurt because you are sitting too far forward in your ergonomically correct chair. No one else can can be inside your body after you “tweak” your shoulder at the softball game over the weekend. The low back pain, and the shoulder pain you feel still show up to work on Monday and distracts you as you attempt to stay focused on work tasks.
How do we fix it?
The WIT method provides companies and individuals with education, tools and support, that will lead to increased body awareness, empowered self-healing, and a more fascia-friendly work environment.
Learn about fascia and its crucial role in the body.
Learn WHY you feel pain and tightness (what is actually happening inside your body).
Learn how to use specially designed tools such as WIT Balls, the WIT Wall, foam rollers as well as your own hands in order to decrease pain and tension and increase flow and oxygenation throughout your body.
Gain increased body awareness allowing you to recognize pain and fatigue as it occurs.
Learn how to sense and correct tissue damage from repetitive strain, poor posture and poor alignment before it becomes chronic pain, tightness, and injury.
