Zap Zing - Whats with that name? (part 2)

“Replenish Your Powers”

In our last episode we discussed our play on yin yang, balance, and the duality of destroying (zapping) and energizing (zinging).  Is zinging a word..? It is now!

Zap and Zing are also a play on the famous pointy-eared, blue spandex wearing superhero. That superhero had such powers, and his battles with villains were so intense, that you can visibly see what was taking place. BAM! POW! WHAP!

We believe that everyone has a super power. Sometimes your powers get drained or damaged in whatever adventure you’re going through. Or perhaps you can’t utilize your powers due to injury or pain. Some people haven’t used their power in years, don’t know how to harness it, or never realized they had any to start with.

Our goal is to help YOU replenish YOUR powers. We meet you where you are physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Through effective bodywork and our unique AIM technique we can reduce pain, relieve injury, and make your body more mobile. For those that like intense, deep trigger point work, we can do that - you just may see a ZAP! appear once or twice in your session. For those who need more energizing, invigorating, or light work we can do that too – these people might come out with more ZING! in their step.

Through one-on-one personal training sessions in our private gym we can help you achieve your goals - whether it be competing in a super crazy endurance race or you just want to make life’s daily tasks easier. Already have a workout routine? We teach mobility and corrective exercises so that you can perform better and with less pain. For those with a unique situation or don’t know where to start but know they need something, talk to us or schedule a session.

Until next time, superfriends... stay tuned!

What is the Zap Zing science all about? 

The human body is an amazing thing: it has the ability to heal itself, cope with a variety of stresses and traumas, and adapts to the demands placed on it. However, the body does not always cope and adapt in the preferred way. The demands of repetitive jobs and hobbies, and our modern lifestyle due to advances in technology means that our bodies are adapting and healing in ways that leave us with chronic pain or illnesses.

For example, sitting at a desk for eight hours a day, with forward hunching shoulders and repetitive finger movement can cause a multitude of issues ranging from numbness in your fingers, headaches, and low back pain to less obvious issues such as depression and anxiety. These ailments are caused by poor posture, inflammation, muscle adhesions and knots, and the pairing of over/underworked muscles. How about those of us who don’t have desk jobs – we are okay, right? Not quite. People who walk or stand all day may experience foot, ankle, or knee issues, low back pain, and a multitude of other issues, based on simple factors such as overtightened and overworked muscles, posting on one leg, or maintaining an improper posture.

Unfortunately, most people do not spend time maintaining their bodies like they should. Sure, we go to the gym or exercise, try to eat right, stretch occasionally, all in the name of trying to keep a healthy lifestyle. However, without a solid foundation, such as proper posture, or adequate muscle recovery techniques, such as bodywork (whether by yourself or with a professional), bodies will ultimately break down resulting in pain or chronic illness.

Here is the good news – with a basic foundation in movement and bodywork, you can heal from and prevent many of these issues.

At Zap Zing Bodyworx, our goal is to help people get out of pain and back on their feet (sometimes literally!) through smart and effective bodywork, education, and take home work. We believe that everybody is capable of living to the fullest and achieving goals beyond their limits, but oftentimes they need help reducing and preventing pain and illness in order to discover their full potential.

Christine Angelica, founder of Zap Zing Bodyworx, has developed AIM therapy; through AIM, she has effectively treated thousands of clients, ranging from pro MMA fighters to great-grandmothers, alleviating a multitude of issues. AIM stands for angles, integration, and muscle work, and as it implies, it includes a variety of modalities and techniques used, making this method the most effective and efficient form of bodywork you can receive.
