Body organs & movement

Posted March 19 2013

Some odd facts I've just come across:

Your organs are in perpetual motion. When you breathe, walk and stretch, your organs move in your chest and abdomen. For example, when you take a breath, your kidneys move one inch; and with deep inhalation, they move 4 inches. In a day, they move a little over ½ mile. That's around 19,000 miles in a lifetime!

Imagine this.  Or maybe not....  

This has coincided with hearing a snippet on the radio about how this motion, and therefore inner body/organ fitness comes about because of gravity. When living in space outside the gravitational pull of our planet, it transpires that for astronauts the lack of exercise for the body organs (as well as the rest of the the body - muscles, joints etc) causes MAJOR problems.

Well, well.  The things I never knew.

When we found ourselves at a crossroads in our marriage, Cathy taught us how to be honest and open with each other and, with the utmost sensitivity, encouraged us to find the right path. Providing a neutral and non-judgemental environment in which to talk, she helped us to understand about ourselves and each other, and the reasons why our lives had led us to such a difficult place. The skills and tools she provided have enabled us to move forward and make a fresh start, building upon the good things and rekindling those feelings that first drew us together. Cathy's very professional service has not only helped save our marriage, but given us the confidence to deal with whatever life might bring in future. Thank you!
