This is a testimonial from a patient today, who realised that not only was the inflammation of her TM Joints and upper neck area undermining her balance but over the years had influenced her choices of lighting and decor for her house!
In the next blog, I will explain the neuroscience behind her this!
” Today in my session with Cathy, we were discussing my recent fall down the stairs which was the second in 2 years. She attributed my lousy balance to my TM Joints disorder and demonstrated how the inflammation in the area was affecting my reaction to any Light/ Dark environment or objects
This test is called the Light/Dark test and she found that my balance was better when I looked at a brighter object. I was stunned!
The staircase in question happened to be a dark wood! I started to think..During the construction of our family home numerous trades tried to talk me out of the abundance of white I had chosen for the cabinetry and walls.
Being a homeowner I won!. After living in the house for just over a year I love the white but there are two things that have bothered me. One is having a kitchen on the north side of the house, I realized I needed my lights turned on all the time, to enjoy being in the kitchen.
The second item is the dark floors. I thought it would be great contrast to the light walls but I’m already planning to have lights floors in my next house.
When I look at the choices I’ve made recently (The house, Car interiors,etc) I realize I’ve tried surrounding myself with light colours.
If my balance is affected by light, maybe I’m drawn to light clours because my body instinctively knows I need light colours to help me balance” Deidre
