Anti-flat Declaration

Since the arrival of the automobile society, road paving has progressed rapidly. When I was a kid, everywhere I went, it was a bumpy road. At that time, I was told, “If you drive a car for a long time, you will have gastroptosis.” Now it’s hard to find a bumpy road. Flat flat flat. He says, “It’s nice to take a walk,” but there are also such facts. According to the white paper on the health room of the elementary school, the nasal bone is the number one fracture site.

How to walk, sit, and stand is to create a work and living environment and habits.

You can have a beautiful posture by standing and sitting.

Many people complain of back pain during standing work. Standing work often causes low back pain and numbness in the legs, even if it is not a special hard work, and chronically causes sciatic nerve inflammation and hernia. Again, if you correct how to stand and sit and teach how to walk, the symptoms will be alleviated.

The difference between a specialist and an amateur

It’s awkward to call myself a specialist, but there are so many liar specialists in the fields of folk medicine and care with various names, so I dare to say a word.

When performing a procedure, the most important thing is to reduce the patient’s risk. I believe that reducing the risk of patients will reduce their own risk. The worst thing is that we can cure anything. If you start to be told that the teacher over there will cure anything, you need to be careful.

Sotai as communication tool

It is important to communicate with your body. I don’t do it every day, but when I think “I’m stiff today” and “I’m tired”, I do sotai myself. You can do it in the morning futon or between work. The good thing about Sotai is that you can do it yourself. Some people say that you can’t do it without having your teacher hold it down. I use it like pushing a pillow to put more effort into “easier people”, and when I get used to it, I move it with the feeling of being held down.

“Compensatory movement” that humanoid robots cannot do

I hear that you are aiming for the Robot vs. Human World Cup in 2050, but what you can’t do with robots at the moment is the “compensatory movement” action.

“Compensatory exercise” is an exercise that literally moves instead. If something goes wrong with your body, for example, even if your right knee is injured and it becomes difficult to move, you can run, walk, or move with a cane in a balanced manner. This is a very good person.

Life and body

Our lives today are much more convenient, easier and richer than they used to be. With the development of home appliances and mobility, the burden on the body has been reduced, work has been divided, and activities of daily living have become simpler. There are also situations where you operate your smartphone or computer for a long time and do not use your body.

In such a life, I think that our bodies tend to be distorted every day without knowing it. Convenience and abundance may lead to the loss of the opportunity to “naturally heal” postures and movements that have become unbalanced in life.

Until very recently, about three generations ago, our lives were waking up in the morning, drawing water, chopping firewood, burning fire, cooking, cleaning and washing, and walking when going to work or school. All activities of daily living were centered on human power, not home appliances or machines. It was also a way of living that moved the body so much that one house could not be maintained without sharing it with the whole family.

At that time, the roads I walked on were uneven, and cleaning started with dusters and swept out with a broom. I used to use my whole body all day, so I think my body was able to restore its original balance naturally. ..

We live in an era in which the strain and bias of our bodies become stronger if we do not live with a great deal of consciousness at the cost of enjoying “convenience and abundance.” I think it is important to pay close attention to the negative effects of “convenience and affluence”, think about what physical care should be, and practice it every day.
