Inertial Fulcrums develop in our body as a result of stress in our system. This stress can originate from traumatic forces from outside of our body or it can be caused by postural or emotional strain from within. The force of gravity and the spinning of the earth can also affect our body as we interplay with our environment to maintain balance. Some stress, like movement through a shock absorber, will move in (or from within), through and out of our system, while other stress may create inertial fulcrums leading to dysfunction. These can potentially be freed with bodywork.
