How to Manifest Rock Solid Walking

In this video I preview a marvelous suggestion for how to manifest rock solid walking.

Here is the clip of my interview with John Pepper.

This suggestion to manifest centered and balanced walking is one among – get this – 144 other therapies, techniques and approaches to manifest rock solid walking covered in my Rock Solid Walking online course. The ideas and techniques are drawn from 275 interviews I have hosted on Parkinsons Recovery Radio over the past two decades. Visit the link below for more information about the course: Pepper, author of Reverse Parkinsons Disease, is a Parkinson’s Patient with six decades of experience. What has helped John manifest recovery is:

  • Taking Conscious Control of all movements
  • Doing Energetic Exercise
  • Managing Stress
  • Adopting a Positive Attitude

Below is the study which reports on the benefits of conscious control of movements to manifest Rock Solid Walking.

Neurorehabil Neural Repair. 2007 Mar-Apr;21(2):123-6. Duration of Parkinson disease is associated with an increased propensity for “reinvestment”. R S W Masters, H S Pall, K M A MacMahon, F F Eves


Background: As a consequence of difficulties in movement initiation and execution, people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) are typically encouraged to consciously monitor and control the mechanics of their actions. This is described as ‘reinvestment’ and has been shown to help mediate effective motor output.

Objective: To examine the propensity for reinvestment in a sample of people with PD.

Methods: A volunteer sample of 55 people with PD was asked to complete a previously validated measure, the Reinvestment Scale. A sub-sample (and age matched controls) was asked to complete a recently developed, movement specific, version of the Scale. Data was collected on Mini Mental State Examination and the Hoehn & Yahr Scale. Participant demographics, including age of onset and duration of disease, were also collated.

Results: Multiple regression analyses showed that duration of disease was associated with reinvestment score on both the Reinvestment Scale and the Movement Specific Reinvestment Scale.

Conclusions: Participants appeared to become more aware of the mechanics of their actions over time. Possible explanations for this finding are discussed with reference to rehabilitation.
