Do you suffer from Acute Motion Starvation?

Many people are unaware that they do.  Do you have any of the following symptoms?

  • Your body hurts in one or more places with no real reason (no pathology or other injury)
  • You work out 2-3 days a week but don’t move too much apart from the workouts
  • Your mind begins to seek reasons to move less instead of move more
  • You have a desk job
  • You have a long commute spent seated in a car/bus/train
  • You need to “unwind” for 2+ hours a day in front of the TV
  • You feel “down” or mildly depressed often and with no real reason

If any of the above describes you, then you probably are suffering from AMS (Acute Motion Starvation.) 

There is a treatment for this condition that has a near 100% success rate and it involves reversing what caused the condition.

Movement Therapy – Funtensity Style

Movement Therapy

To apply movement therapy, use a daily dose of movement for at least 10-15 minutes a day.  If desired, you can double the dose as this has often been shown to magnify the results of the treatment. 

Feel free to self-administer this treatment whenever you have 10 minutes available.  The type of movement matters very little to your body so long as it involves motion of the larger joints in the body – the shoulder, trunk, and hips.

Apply movement therapy 1-2 times per day for a period of 7 days, and if symptoms are reduced, feel free to continue the treatment indefinitely. 

Movement therapy is available without a prescription and you’ll find it wherever there is gravity.

Your body thrives on movement.  It comes alive when you move.  It sends small electrical signals all over the place to turn various muscles on or off at the right times, to sense where your body is in space, and how fast you are moving. 

Movement also sends blood around the body and this brings warm, nutrient-rich blood to all your joints and muscles.  Joints feel more stiff and painful when they are moved less, not more.  The only way blood gets into your joints is from the pumping action of muscles contracting and relaxing.  No movement, no blood flow.  This is why joints (whether healthy or injured) feel stiffer when they are motionless for any length of time.

Even Better than Therapy

More than just movement – move in the Funtensity way.  Move in ways that are physically challenging yet also fun, interactive, and put a smile on your face. 

It’s a winning combination to use what you do outside of your body to change what is going on inside your body and mind. Use your outsides (your arms and legs) to change your insides (your organs and mind).
