Our Mission

P-Knot’s mission is to provide education and resources for people to self-heal.  The passion behind the P-Knot is compassion for helping others.   We are starting a movement that is geared towards educating and connecting with people so together we can become starfish throwers in a healthier society.

Our Passion is Compassion

The P-Knot philosophy incorporates the African Proverb “Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped” when looking at the source of health issues. In today’s world, a pill, surgery, or simply to rest the problem are the majority of modalities prescribed to patients for their symptoms.

“Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped”

– African Proverb

We want people to learn how to use the power of Self Myofascial Release (SMR) to resolve an infinite amount of issues at the early stages of development, so modern medicine can be the last option. Making our youth of today aware of the SMR will create a future based on living with preventive medicine.  It starts with ourselves to set the example that will increase our health, wellness, and vitality.  Let’s end the pain and needless suffering that affects millions of people every day.  Check out our information, discover what SMR can do for you, and join our movement.

It is going to take the efforts of a collective oneness, so we need your help!  Become a Starfish Thrower and lets educate and spread the word together! The vitality of all of us today, tomorrow, and generations to come depend on it.

The Starfish Thrower

A young man is walking along the ocean and sees a beach on which thousands and thousands of starfish have washed ashore. Further along he sees an old man, walking slowly and stooping often, picking up one starfish after another and tossing each one gently into the ocean.

“Why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” he asks.

“Because the sun is up and the tide is going out and if I don’t throw them further in they will die.”

“But, old man, don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it! You can’t possibly save them all, you can’t even save one-tenth of them. In fact, even if you work all day, your efforts won’t make any difference at all.”

The old man listened calmly and then bent down to pick up another starfish and threw it into the sea.

“It made a difference to that one.”
