I was inspired by two of my patients to create a workout routine using these inexpensive sliders.
These are 9″ in diameter, larger than most on the market.
The sliders combine the properties of the wooden rotational discs and the slide board, both valuable Rev6 tools.
I have created this follow-along video to be used with the sliders. Enjoy!
The Body: A Guide for Occupants by Bill Bryson
It will lead you to a deeper understanding of the miracle that is life in general and you in particular.
As Bill Bryson writes, “We pass our existence within this wobble of flesh and yet take it almost entirely for granted.”
It had me laughing out loud, better informed, more curious, and a better doctor.
Motion Sensor Indoor Lights
Serendipitously, the package arrived while I was listening to Bill Bryson’s book At Home, A Short History of Private Life. One of the chapters is dedicated to stairs. Here is a quote (and a recommendation for where to place the lights):
“As many as one-third of all stair accidents occur on the first or last step, and two-thirds occur on the first or last three steps.”
The lights emphasize the need to float our heads—freedom in the head and neck are crucial for eyesight, balance, and coordination.
I spoke with the founder and CEO, Jackson Corley, a chiropractor passionate about staying active and helping others do the same.
Their products are wearable anti-inflammatory devices for your joints. What makes them special is the mineral Germanium woven into the fabric, which gets activated by body heat. If you experience any fascial remodeling soreness, their products can give you relief.
BOSU® Plug Puller
It’s designed specifically to remove the plugs of BOSU Balls not just to deflate them but also to ensure that the ball is inflated just at the right amount. Doing so is critical for product longevity.
HECOstix is a fun and engaging tool that is best with a partner but can be used alone as well. One person calls out one of the three colors of the HECOstix legs and a hand combination, and the receiver must catch the correct leg with the right hand.
This fun exercise enhances eye-hand coordination as well as executive function. Done on a BOSU ball is, of course, the Rev6 way.
We have partnered with HECOstix to give you a 15% discount with the use of the code: HECOSTIX15.
If you’re anything like me, you live in your gym clothes almost 24/7. You also probably struggle to find comfortable and supportive yet stylish pieces to wear.
Thankfully, I found a brand whose designs can move with me throughout each day: Athleta! They have a wide selection of apparel for all sports, sizes, and climates. The best part is… their clothes are designed by active women for active women.
I have partnered with them to give you $20 off a pair regular-priced Salutation Stash or Transcend tights! Make sure to order fast because this offer only lasts until September 10th.
Ojai Energetics CBD Sports Gel
The beauty of it is that it glides, penetrates quickly, and works. The fascia is filled with CBD receptors; therefore, this gel is compatible with Rev6 and fascial manipulation.
In addition, Ojai Energetics is a company I believe in, and shares values similar to Rev6. Like us, they care about your health and well-being. They do this by using the cleanest, safest, highest-quality ingredients.
Ojai Energetics has kindly offered a free gel with an order of a 3 or 6-pack when you order through this link.
ALKA Hydrogen Water Generator
Recently my engineering husband purchased a hydrogen-generating bottle based on good authority from a colleague and heard from one of the most qualified Functional Neurologists that hydrogen water is vital to brain health and more. A quick review of some of the research indicates the following benefits:
- Improves muscle recovery, increases power performance, and reduces muscle function decline after a workout
- Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and anti-aging effects
- Aids in the healing of traumatic brain injury
- Enhances the gut microbiome, thereby improving brain health
- Increases in central nervous system activity that is anti-depressive, anti-anxiety, mood-elevating, and decreases sympathetic activity at rest
- Contributes to the regulation of autophagy and cell death, important in eliminating damaged cell components
- And many more
Even if the bottle just gets you drinking more water, I am on board with recommending the ALKA Hydrogen Water Generator. I personally notice the difference and look forward to reaping the benefits.
4KOR Fitness Mini-Vibration Device
My new favorite thing is this little mini-vibration device, beautifully designed with true knowledge of how the superficial fascia must be treated. Many fascial devices on the market abuse the fascia and the practitioner. On the contrary, this one’s vibration mechanism, silicon head, and handle make it ideal for what we do.
I am delighted to have a tool to recommend to my patients and practitioners for self-care and, of course, to use in my practice.
by Jessie Inchauspé
Something I have learned over the span of my career is how one seemingly isolated factor can have far-reaching effects on our bodies.
One of those is glucose.
In her best-selling book Glucose Revolution, biochemist Jessie Inchauspé discusses how glucose impacts our health, from our sleep and mood to our skin.
I love this book because not only is it packed with simple, actionable, and evidence-based tips, it’s also entertaining!
You can find it in bookstores nationwide or order it online!
BOSU Pro-Balance Trainer
Try standing on both feet with your eyes closed and you learn where your imbalances are. When you stand single footed on the flat side all of your Essentials engage. What an amazing tool! In addition, its unstable surface makes it perfect for training our balance, which is highly consequential to our movement and performance. Find out more in my new blog, Improving Performance Through Balance Training, then put your newfound knowledge into practice with a BOSU!
Each foot is made up of 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles, 10 tendons, 107 ligaments, and 100’s of thousands of nerve endings. Our feet are our direct connection with our environment when we stand and walk. The pipes are an effective and necessary tool to restore mobility and refine the neurology of our feet which is vital for balance, movement, overall health, perceiving and responding to our environment, and our safety.
Check out my new Blog, The Benefits of Tactile Stimulation in Cognitive and Athletic Performance, to learn more about the impact the Pipes can have in finding optimal health and performance.
Pro Rotating Discs
The rotational discs organize and enhance rotational movement in the feet, ankles, knees, and hips. This organization leads to movement precision, efficiency, and usable strength.

Nitric Oxide Support
The direction for the product was to take enough until the room got brighter, an indication that blood to the brain was increased affecting the optic nerve. The conversion was immediate in energy, tissue oxygenation, and performance.
Nitric Oxide Support continues to be a crucial product in the care of my patients increasing circulation, restoring blood vessel health, and improving hormonal health. New discoveries of the benefits of NO support continue to arise.
In 1998 three American scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for their discoveries on “Nitric Oxide as a signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system”.
Nitric oxide is made in the body but decreases as we age. A diet rich in NO foods is important but I have never seen anyone increase their NO to the optimal range with diet alone.
What is the optimal range?
Berkeley Life came up with salivary test strips, simple to use, and immediate results that indicate your NO level based on the color generated by the interaction of your saliva with a reagent. This is a great way to identify if you are getting enough in your diet and or supplementation, and whether your supplement is working (or not).
How to take NO support:
If you want an immediate NO push before exercising or competing take the Apex Nitric Balance, for sustained and long-term NO benefits take the Berkeley Life NO support. For athletes serious about their performance take both.
I encourage you to read about the benefits of these products. Berkeley Life provides many articles and webinars on the benefits of NO.
You can purchase these products through our Rev6 “stores”.

Extreme Like A Girl
by Carolina Amell
Why I like this book:
This is a lovely tabletop book that is beautiful, inspiring, and features my dear friend, Lynsey Dyer.
Lynsey is not only an amazing extreme skier, pioneer and female sport advocate she is a passionate conservationist.
“Our biggest challenge is not whether we can do big things; it is whether we have the audacity to consider the biggest things we might be able to create and then commit to the vision, regardless of who approves.”

Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity
The book is Sebastian Junger’s memoir of his trip as he hitchhiked in the US after college.
He talks about the importance of tribe and uniting with others who share common values, ideas, experiences, and backgrounds. Challenges and uncertainty bring people together, and that it is our Tribe that helps us feel less lonely and more fulfilled.
I found that one’s true tribe, the people you most want to spend time with were the ones you kept in contact with even with a quick hello email, text, or call during the lockdown.
A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century
I met this book’s authors, Heather and Bret, at Flow Camp in 2019. We were guests and presenters, and our friendship began. Heather’s and Bret‘s writing goes deep.
The dynamic couple hosts the DarkHorse Podcast, A Show for Curious Minds and Free Thinkers found at https://bretweinstein.net/podcast. My husband and I are regular viewers and fans.
Here is a summary of the book:
A provocative exploration of the tension between our evolutionary history and our modern woes–and what we can do about it.
We are living through the most prosperous age in all of human history, yet we are listless, divided, and miserable. Wealth and comfort are unparalleled, but our political landscape is unmoored, and rates of suicide, loneliness and chronic illness continue to skyrocket. How do we explain the gap between these truths? And how should we respond?
A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century outlines a science-based worldview that will empower you to live a better, wiser life.
For evolutionary biologists, Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein, the cause of our troubles is clear: the accelerating rate of change in the modern world has outstripped the capacity of our brains and bodies to adapt. We evolved to live in clans, but today many people don’t even know their neighbors’ names. In our haste to discard outdated gender roles, we increasingly deny the flesh-and-blood realities of sex–and its ancient roots. The cognitive dissonance spawned by trying to live in a society we are not built for is killing us.
In this book, Heying and Weinstein draw on decades of their work teaching in college classrooms and exploring Earth’s most biodiverse ecosystems to confront today’s pressing social ills–from widespread sleep deprivation and dangerous diets to damaging parenting styles and backward education practices. They ask the questions many modern people are afraid to ask.
