Repeating Shapes

Throughout civilized history, two shapes have forged together to give symbolic meanings to various societies and belief systems: the triangle and circle. The symbol is known as the thaumaturgic triangle. It has been used as a symbol for the Illuminati, Masons, Kabbalah Movement, and some Christian faiths. The Rosicrucians used the symbol of the snake devouring itself around a triangle. Even in today’s world, you can see it on the back of the dollar bill as the all-seeing eye. It appears on the emblem for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as well as on the flags for the countries of Nicaragua and El Salvador.

When it comes to structural stability the triangle reigns supreme. Think about the pyramids of Giza, large bases, and small tops. Take a look at a railroad bridge and see how many triangles you find. All skyscrapers are comprised of numerous triangular supports. The same can be said of our bodies. Our feet have four “corners” like the pyramids, the forefeet, and rear feet, and our top is smaller than our base. Our spines are biggest at the bottom (the lumbar vertebrae) and smallest at the top (atlas and axis). If we were to trace lines between these points, we would create many triangles. We could repeat this process throughout our entire musculoskeletal system and find triangles everywhere.

When studying movement, there is one shape which keeps repeating, the circle. Our planet rotates on it is axis and orbits around the sun in circular manners. A baseball pitcher hurls a fastball by rotating around his center. In fact, every bone in our body has a circular path they follow as we walk down the street. We move in an orbital fashion around the center of our mass.

The work we do in removing chronic and acute pain symptoms by restoring structural stability and guiding more efficient, proper movement is based on science and mathematics. We use the laws of physics to determine how the body creates excess pressure, mechanical advantages, force vectors and stress points. We do not rely on spinning crystals, burning incense or chanting some ancient ritual. Simply put, we find which triangles are missing and which circles need better shape.
