If you are looking for NeuroMovement in Brighton, you've come to the right place. Our NeuroMovement practitioners are here to help you.
The Anat Baniel Method (ABM) NeuroMovement is a holistic approach to human functioning and action, based in the understanding that movement is the language of the brain. It can help you move beyond pain and limitation, and gain greater health, flexibility, strength and vitality, no matter your age or physical condition.
Movement provides information the brain needs to grow and organise itself. And, in return, the brain organises all movement; not only movement of the body in space—the movement of the skeleton and muscles—but also the movements of thinking, emotion, and feelings.
Brain plasticity is the ability of the brain and nervous system to change structurally and functionally in response to experience. Plasticity occurs on the level of cellular changes and changes involved in cortical remapping. The most widely recognised forms of plasticity are learning, memory, and recovery from brain damage.
The brains of infants and children are extremely changeable, as they need to form all the brain patterns associated with voluntary action. Their brains are constantly expanding and mapping new territory.
The science of brain plasticity shows how, under the right conditions, the adult brain can also restructure itself in remarkable ways. Even the birth of new brain cells can occur in adults, as well as children, something believed impossible not too long ago.
There are two methods of conducting NeuroMovement lessons:
1. Transformational Movement Lessons (TMLs) are verbally guided movement lessons that can be done individually or in groups. Students* have their own space on the floor and follow the instructions given by the practitioner, to focus on different functions and movement skills. TMLs normally run for between 45 minutes to one hour.
2. Functional Synthesis (FS) sessions are one-on- one movement lessons. These private sessions are customised by the practitioner to the particular needs and skills level of each student*. FS sessions are normally between 25 to 45 minutes long for a child and up to an hour for an adult.
*Clients are called “students” because the purpose of the sessions is to bring about transformation through experiential learning. FS sessions may be done with students as young as a few days old, all the way to people in their 90’s.
ABM NeuroMovement can create new possibilities for children and adults suffering from:
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Genetic Disorders
- Cerebral Palsy
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI), and more.
Even for those without specific challenges, NeuroMovement can make dramatic changes in:
- Mental Clarity
- Recovery of Function after Injury or Rehab
