    That's what I thought. You really need to schedule another follow up visit with me next week. Got a great idea on how we can adjust the meds (you know... for our "cool down" exercises).

    I usually play maybe 30 seconds worth of low tones and/or pedal tones and then put her to bed. The low tone-age and pedals is just to get some blood flowing ... sort of like the horse like lip flutter that Bobby Shew has talked about. Of course, you can do that without the horn while watching The Outer Limits or Twilight Zone.

    Kissing! If you can't find a person, try it on a pet..if you don't have a pet..try it on a domesticated animal like a dog or cat...avoid doing this with animals such as lions, tigers, bears....O Mi....

    On a somewhat related note, my teacher in college, Ray Mase, told me he never warmed up because he played so much, he was always warmed up...I found this to be true too...

    p.s. - Can anyone send some young ladies my way so I can practice my cool down exercise??

    My warm down technique was perfected over the years playing in Brass Bands. It's simple and effective. Bung the instrument in its case as fast as possible and get in the pub. Never fails. :cool:

    The only instance that I can think of that requires emergency physical cool down is when one has an extreme fever, but I've heard that Docs induce a chill to sustain life for some patients. I just put my instrument in a secure place and sit down, then closing my eyes for a minute or so ... aka relaxing. Then its the tedium of wiping down my instrument including an internal swab of the lead pipe. If I then have to transport my instrument and equipment that is another task.

    I use loose lip buzzing to get the blood back into the lips and clear out any lactic acid that has developed.

    That would work... I also like to us massage to do this... seems to get a response very quickly this way.
