Guest Bio: Bill Boland, Founder BodyFix Method
Bill BolandBill Boland is the founder and creator of the BodyFix MethodTM; a holistic health tool designed to minimize pain, improve energy, and everyday performance through restoring the body's natural alignment.

BodyFix MethodTM was born out of Bill's personal struggle to find long-­‐term pain relief. As a competitive athlete, Bill's years of intensive training impacted his body and joints. Not wanting to rely on invasive surgery or drugs for temporary relief, Bill set out on a mission to find a real solution that not only treated the pain but addressed the cause behind the pain.

Founded in 1995, BodyFix MethodTM uses restorative exercises focused on joint alignment and the body's natural mechanics. BodyFix method was developed using the science behind a variety of other therapies to create a holistic method that works for all bodies and ages. Bill explains "At BodyFix Method, our goal is not to manage pain, but to eliminate it."

As a Clinical Exercise Specialist, Bill has extensive knowledge in biochemistry and kinesiology. Bill earned certifications in the Egoscue MethodTM as a Postural Alignment Specialist, in Muscle Energy TechniquesTM, and in Muscle Activation TechniquesTM. He is trained in Strain Counterstrain therapy, Spinal Manipulation, and soft tissue manual therapy.

Prior to establishing his own practice, Bill successfully treated thousands of patients as a physiologist at Pain Management & Rehabilitation Medical Services, one of New York's most highly praised remedial clinics.
Monday Hangover? Try These Simple Stretches & Exercises for Relief
Suffering from a hangover? Put down the Tylenol and get out your yoga mat.

Even though all you may want to do after a long night out is sleep, eat greasy food, and have a day on the couch, you may find more relief doing three yoga poses.

Certain exercises can gently get the blood flowing and bring you back to life and motion.

What are these exercises?

  1.  Standing Arm Circles. This exercise will bring your shoulders back, pulling your drooping head up with it, as well as pump up nutrients to the brain.
  2. Standing Overhead Arm Extension. This move is easy to do and great for pulling the ribs up and putting stomach muscles back into action.
  3. Seated Shoulder Blade Squeezes. Can't stomach standing up yet? You can do this exercise easily on a chair or bench with ribs up and shoulder blades slowly brought to the spine and released.

Founder of BodyFix MethodTM, Bill Boland shares three stretches that can help ease your hangover.
