Whether you want to reduce pain, embrace a goal such as running faster, or wish to move through life with greater precision, your intention is important. Holding a clear intention signals your brain to recognize and prioritize useful information. Your brain becomes a magnet, prioritizing facts and feelings you need to succeed.
Employing your intention as you sense your movement will refine your neuroconnections, upgrading the precision with which you move and think. This powerful combination of actions is useful in overcoming conscious and unconscious limitation. Learning to focus on your feelings, which requires moving slowly, gives you specific information you can use to function more in accordance with your chosen values and goals. Both healing and becoming more skillful, are fascinating, challenging and creative processes. We tend to want to know what is wrong with us, and while knowledge of the problem may be useful or even vital, it isn’t a focus that finally promotes healing or high level performance. Developing our ability to perceive our subtle movement is a skill that serves powerfully in any creative process. The clarity with which we perceive our subtle movement makes it possible for us to organize ourselves so we can care for ourselves effectively and both move toward, and continually refine, our goals.
In Person Sessions
You are encouraged to share your goals and also to let us know about concerns, injuries or conditions you might have. You will be assisted in finding a position that is comfortable on a padded table. Sitting in a chair is also an option. Cushions may be placed to provide extra support. Your comfort is important to the work being effective. A sense of safety will increase your ability to perceive your subtle movement. Functional Synthesis or a Transformational Movement Lesson or a combination of the two are all possible methods of providing you with information about yourself that can help your brain make positive changes.
Learn what you can do to overcome pain, move with greater comfort, and/or optimize your outcome from traditional fitness or therapeutic approaches. Initial phone sessions are thirty to sixty minutes in length. We will explore what may be contributing to your discomfort, or stalling your healing and create strategies for moving toward realizing your goal. Personalized Transformational Movement Lessons can be taught over the phone.
