How can one method transform both children and adults, with such a wide range of needs?
Within the brain and its ability to change, the process whereby children and adults change and transform is the same. The ABM NeuroMovement approach taps into the possibility that the brain can change itself for the better at any time in life. ABM NeuroMovement uses brain plasticity principles that help upgrade the quality of the functioning of any brain. That is why it is useful across all age groups and so many different conditions and needs.
Mimi: "Birgit is and extremely talented practitioner of ABM. She worked with our daughter, B., over the course of several months. She was very patient and creative in her approach. During the time she worked with B. we noticed an increased receptiveness on B's part, to try exploring movement with greater variety. B. now wants to 'show' us what she can 'do'. Time spent with Birgit is invaluable."
Janet: "The left side of my neck was stiff and hurt all the time, I had a knot at the base of my scull on the left, back side, and I also had an old injury to my left shoulder that kept flaring up causing the complete left side of my back to go into muscle spasms. All of this caused disabling migraine headaches, uncomfortable pressures in my body and head, and indigestion.
After several months of NeuroMovement group classes and some one-on-one sessions, the pain in my neck is reduced by at least 75%, the knot at the base of my head is gone, and I haven't had a migraine headache for months. In addition I have learned to move more of my spine and chest and experience much fuller breathing. My posture has completely changed, and I have a much higher energy level and brighter outlook for the future."
