What is Neuromovement Therapy?

You may have heard of terms like neurology, neuroplastisticity, neurosurgeon or neuroscience before. The root word of neuro originates from ancient greek, meaning nerve, or nerves, or pertaining to the body’s nervous system and brain.

Your brain and nervous system that organize all movement, thought, feeling, and emotion within the body. This means that to eliminate pain, you need to change the patterns of movement and nerves firing in your brain.

So, then what exactly is Neuromovement and what does a Neuromovement practitioner do?

In short, we upgrade your nervous system (including the brain) with hands on movement lessons, cueing and coaching.

Through a series of cues and light touch, we teach your brain to move your body with ease. Neuromovement practitioners use 9 scientifically based “Essentials” to build new neuro pathways in your brain to help assist with movement.

Since everyone has lived complex lives full of injuries, accidents, prolonged sitting, our nervous system has reacted accordingly.

Perhaps you’ve broken a bone in the lower half of leg and now 10 years later the opposite hip is experience chronic pain. Maybe you’ve experienced whiplash in car accident and feel as if you don’t really move and feel the way you used to.

Very often, pain is caused by deeply ingrained poor habits of movement. These habits are formed in the brain circuity and manifest through movement patterns. At a very basic level, your less-than-ideal movement is causing this pain and we can improve it!

When someone comes into the clinic for a Neuromovement Lesson, your practitioner will ask you a series of questions to get to know you, get you comfortable on the Neuromovement table (similar to a massage table but a little different), and start teaching your brain how to move your body through cueing, light touch and instruction.
