IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE BY UPGRADING YOUR BRAIN WITH ABM NEUROMOVEMENT®
The Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® recognizes the key role of movement in the development and healthy functioning of the brain and takes advantage of the brain's amazing ability to grow new neural connections at any time in life. With its innovative NeuroMovement lessons and neuroplasticity tools it creates the conditions for this process to happen and gives students the opportunity to explore and form new and more refined patterns for action and thinking. It helps many people to overcome pain and limitation and opens the doors to new possibilities.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Movement is at the basis of any action we do and part of any experience we have. By bringing attention to our movement, to what we do and how it feels, we give our brain an opportunity to gather information. When there is movement there is change, and it is through the noticing of changes that the brain gets the "food" it needs to upgrade itself and form new solutions.
In a NeuroMovement lesson the teacher either verbally or through gentle touch guides the student to explore different movements and gently introduces new variations and possibilities to the student. Through novelty, variation, the reduction of speed and intensity, and other brain plasticity principles, the method provides the conditions for the brain to wake up and perceive differences in all dimensions, giving it the information it needs to map the body, and evolve a person’s ability to think, feel, move, and organize action better. When the brain can do its job better, everything improves—physical performance levels, cognitive abilities, creativity, and social skills. And we are happier too!
The one-to-one lessons are completely customized to the particular needs and skill level of each client. They are 30-45 minutes long. Clients are called “students” because the purpose of the sessions is to bring about transformation through experiential learning. The student can be as young as a few days old and all the way up into the 90’s.
The teacher uses gentle touch to connect to the student and help the student feel what they are doing and indicate movement possibilities. This process helps the student to gain clarity, discover new options to get into action and improve their skill level by forming new neural connections. New possibilities for movement and thinking emerge and function that has been lost due to injury or a stroke can be re-learned.
For best outcomes, the recommendation is to do a series of several lessons within a short time, what is called an "intensive" - e.g. three lessons in one week with adults, or one or two lessons per day for 4-5 days in a row with young children. How many sessions each student needs depends on the condition and goals of the client. Learn more HERE
