Do You Need CPR?
“When your luck is battin’ zero, get your chin up off the floor. Mister, you can be a hero. You can open any door. There’s nothin’ to it, but to do it.You’ve gotta have Heart! Miles and miles and miles of Heart! Oh, it’s fine to be a genius of course! But keep that ol’ horse before the cart! First you’ve got to have Heart!” –Richard Adler
Why have I been singing this song all week, because I have heart? I would have to say yes. Could I use more? Sure and also because that’s the song that my son will sing for his audition to one of the high schools on his list for next year…so we have been singing it for days.
“When the odds are sayin’ you’ll never win, that’s when the grin should start!”
I sure don’t start grinning when I hear the odds say that “I’ll never win” and I recently was hearing that message in my head just three or four weeks before that giant storm hit New York, so those two events together motivated the hell out of me to get out there, express myself more then ever and live in the moment.
Aracelli and I have heard the odds say “You’ll never win” off and on for years in the physical therapy business and I can tell you that it is just an old record that plays every once in a while for your entertainment or when you try something new. With the kind of therapy we do here, you will be able to trade in your old messages for new ones like, “I can get through this.”
We have been walking through our fears for years on our own personal journeys to open our hearts even before we opened our business. Everything we’ve learned in that time we put into your treatments because we know that when things build up you feel confusion, physical pain and you loose touch with your self. We have plenty of tips for you as we sort through your own vintage recordings of various “I can’t…” messages to get you to where you want to be.
The therapy we do here could in fact be called CPR, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation. While we reactivate your heart you trade in your old recordings for new ones like, “I can…”
When you’re in pain of course the last thing you are thinking about is your heart because it is probably buried in layers of compacted unexpressed emotions, fears, anxieties, stress and tensions, that have been trapped and buried in your body and building up for years but I suspect your ticker leads you to us.
At some point you gather enough courage to say, “I’m mad as hell and I can’t or won’t take it any more!” so your heart sends out a distress signal and we bounce back our coordinates to you. After a series of treatments you realize that the pain or the symptoms you were feeling was only your body trying to tell you something that you weren’t hearing…how could you hear your heart without some CPR?
