We teach you how to teach your clients how to move. There is some science behind that and it helps to know a little bit about it, so we take the time during the movement seminars to cover those concepts. To effectively use Practical Movement though, the most important things to know are how and what:
✓ How do I teach my clients?
✓ What do my clients need to know to be successful with the movements?
✓ How can I incorporate this method into my practice?
You can easily learn the concepts and the science behind them in a weekend. While we recommend that you take the Targeted Movement for Massage Therapy seminar first, these concepts are included in all of the movement seminars.
A quick look at the science behind Practical Movement
Practical Movement is based on somatic movement principles. Somatic movement retrains the nervous system through moving slowly with awareness and with purpose, allowing the body to reorganize and regain neuromuscular control. You can be very successful with the movements by just using them to retrain the neuromuscular system.

To get the most out of the movements, you blend them with postural assessment. A postural assessment allows you to more quickly determine the right movements to choose for a client. This enables you to not only retrain the neuromuscular system but also to restore postural balance. This can make a big difference in your client’s healing process.
