East meets West in this week's OPP featuring Scott Dolly, owner
of Evolution Human Performance and Rehabilitation.
With an education that spans Physics, Biology, Qi Gong, Yoga,
Mediation and more, Scott marries the best of Eastern and Western
philosophies into his practice which he focuses on the the
Neural Patterns in the Biomechanics of Movement, Scraping & Soft
Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) and Alignment.
After he assessed, analyzed, scraped, poked and prodded on me
for several hours, Scott and I sat down in his Winchester, VA
facility to talk about :
- Why normal and average are misused terms
- Tuning a human like a guitar: energy, vibrations resonance
frequencies and the musical notes that correspond to each of the 7
- Proper motor sequencing in the biomechanics of movement: from
cerebellum to motor cortex to the muscles that fire
- Why foam rolling is a good "warmup" for IASTM & soft tissue
- What the heck is scraping?
- Self-diagnosing your anterior pelvic (if you don't know what it is,
you probably have it)
- Why stretching doesn't always work: you cant remove a knot from
rope by pulling on the rope
- Why stability is more important than strength
- Why a tool is only as good as the person using it
- Open-chain vs closed-chain movements
- Biohacks to accelerate healing (from a man who is 6 weeks out
of an Achilles rupture)
- Why Evolution Human Performance and Rehabilitation has
performance enhancing blue lights in the facility
Big thanks to Scott for opening his facility and his mind to us.
This is a truly insightful podcast and one I'm sure you'll
