“The origin of our neuromuscular dysfunction is rooted in our movement strategy… we need to return to moving from our center, whole body movement.”
The WholeBody view is a hands-on bodywork approach to movement therapy that utilizes gentle invitational movements. These techniques facilitate profound relaxation while releasing deep-seated restrictive bodymind patterns. Most recipients report an immediate increase in neuromuscular mobility and a return towards one’s optimal performance. The WholeBody View has therapeutic applications in massage, physical, and occupational therapies. This ground-breaking method will lead both practitioner and client to greater overall well being and function.
The essence and foundation of the WholeBody View is that we are naturally designed and brilliantly organized to initiate all movement from our center as a whole body. Anything less than a whole body approach to movement is “segmenting.” This restrictive approach is the most inefficient and stressful strategy for moving our body through our day’s activities. Long term segmenting establishes restrictive movement patterns that lead to neuromuscular dysfunction developing an environment for injury and trauma. In this View segmenting is the origin of our neuromuscular dysfunction. Initiating movement from our center it diffuses that stress and effort throughout our entire structure negating point loading and overly stressed areas in our body. Our immediate experience is the restoration of ease, freedom and well balanced, safe movement. Through this method everyone is capable of improving and experiencing greater function.
Each student will experience the fullness of this unique approach to well being through hands-on bodywork. Each participant in this WholeBody CE class will:
