NeuroMovement® is a holistic approach with it's foundation in the science of neuroplasticity. This refers to the brain's ability to learn and change at any age.
The brain is responsible for all of our movement, thought, feeling, action and emotion. In order for us to learn anything new and for any change to occur in the way we move, think and feel, the brain needs to obtain new information and create new neural connections. Anytime we learn or experience something new, this creates new connections in our brain.
NeuroMovement® harnesses this power through gentle touch and variations of movement which enable the brain to increase awareness, perceive subtle differences and discover new possibilities.
NeuroMovement® lessons incorporate The Nine Essentials and may be conducted in a variety of positions - lying down on the back, side or front, in standing, leaning over a table, sitting in a chair or on the floor. Clients are called students as the process is used to facilitate experiential learning. Each lesson is different and involves a series of slow and gentle movement variations that create a unique learning process which can lead to changes and new developments. Students are met where they are and the focus is on building on what they can do, rather than forcing them to do what they cannot do.
Functional Synthesis Lessons are one-on-one and customised to the individual needs of each student. They involve gentle, hands-on movement variations tailored to bring about changes through experiential learning.
Transformational Movement Lessons may be one-on-one or taught in groups. Students follow guided verbal instructions and gently move through a sequence of movements, which focus on different movement patterns and functions.
CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
"If he could, he would; if she could, she would" - Anat Baniel
NeuroMovement® starts with where your child is and what your child can do rather than force your child to do something they cannot do or push for a specific action or outcome. It steers away from the concept of trying to 'fix' a child and instead uses gentle touch and variation of movement to connect with your child, bring awareness to the body, help them perceive subtle differences and wake them up to new possibilities for movement, thought and action.
All children learn and develop through a process of small changes to achieve the breakthroughs that we recognise such as crawling, walking, talking etc.
Neuromovement® and The Nine Essentials create favourable conditions to support your child in their process and can be helpful for the following conditions:
TYPICALLY DEVELOPING CHILDREN
Typically developing children can also benefit greatly from NeuroMovement® and incorporating The Nine Essentials into their daily life to help them reach new levels of physical, emotional and cognitive performance. Improved posture, coordination, focus, balance, flexibility, attention span, organisational skills and logical thinking are just some of the positive outcomes experienced by typically developing children.
High-performing athletes, musicians and dancers can overcome stiffness, pain and limitation, often brought on by practicing the same patterns over and over again for many years, and find comfort, flexibility, ease of movement and improved performance.
VITALITY AND WELLNESS
There is a widely accepted presumption that after a certain age, our vitality and ability to learn begin to decrease. Common complaints may include forgetfulness, pain or stiffness, difficulty climbing stairs or getting out of bed, tripping or falling more often, lack of energy etc.
However, by tapping into our brain's ability to change and learn at any age through movement, thinking and awareness, the work has shown that it is possible to improve the typical symptoms of ageing such as issues with mobility and flexibility, mental clarity and strength, balance and posture, chronic aches and pains.
Experience greater body awareness, create new neural connections, learn to move with ease and wake up to new possibilities for vitality and wellness.
Examples of positive outcomes include:
High-performing individuals such as athletes, musicians, dancers and CEOs, those at the top of their game, can also benefit greatly from NeuroMovement® and The Nine Essentials. Learn to overcome stiffness, pain and limitation, often brought on by practicing the same patterns over and over again for many years, and discover comfort, flexibility, ease of movement and improved performance.
