I use Restorative Exercise™/Nutritious Movement as a starting point in my approach - looking for mechanical roots of your injuries and how to work with your body towards a more sustainable alignment - one that would not be creating forces that have caused the injury in the first place. Applying 25 objective alignment markers grounded on principles of geometry, engineering and physics to your very body, we will work together to align bones and joints in relation to each other and allow the muscles to gradually restore their length for optimal function. You can find out more about this approach on nutritiousmovement.com.
Even though largely relying on mechanics and geometry in my work, I don’t see the body as a machine that needs to be ”fixed” but rather a complex expression of our emotions, habits and cultural conditioning, of the way we see ourselves and experience the world around us. So, a good part of what I do is aimed at the nervous system and interoception (sense of psychological condition of the body). I like using mindfulness, body awareness and somatic imagery to help you explore your movement and tension patterns and aid in removing old muscular habits.
Most of my work focuses on proprioception and motor programming - helping you learn how to isolate and control small movements. The practices are performed slowly and with as little effort as possible, giving a lot of attention to body awareness.
The aim of the exercises is not to challenge your abilities, but build new neural pathways - innervating underused areas of the body so they would gradually restore their function in your day-to-day life.
Improving how parts of your body work together and in relation to each other will bring different outcomes on cellular level, such as less wear and tear on the joints, better bone density and generally a more robust strength with less likelihood for injury.
