Functional Therapy and Training
If you experience musculoskeletal injuries you would need to put the body through functional rehabilitation along with developing functional awareness. Functional therapy is an alternative to physical therapy, medical and chiropractic care.
While conventional treatments concentrate on the location of pain the functional therapy focuses on the areas outside the pain. It has proven to be very effective and helped many individuals to remove pain and avoid surgical intervention related to knee, spine, low-back, hip, shoulder, neck and feet problems.
Here’s a video interview from a person who was scheduled for 2 shoulder and 1 knee replacements and functional therapy helped him to cancel all three surgeries.

Running, Walking and Beyond
Conventional coaching guidelines for efficient running performance focus on isolated joints and muscles and they are not based on the scientific principles of functional anatomy, and human movement. It is not widely understood that human body movements are not accomplished by single commands by moving “legs” or “shoulders” and training of isolated body parts will not develop an efficient functional chain movement. This training is divided into three phases: 1) speed walking or race walking, 2) jogging and 3) running. When you become efficient in speed walking, you can transition to jogging and running.

Swimming and Beyond
Conventional swimming instruction is revolved around the “stroke” which shifts the focus of training to the upper body. Any human movement including swimming can be described as changing positions with a proper weight shift. It is not widely understood that efficient movement takes place by shifting the center of body weight. For instance, traditional swimming training targets “hips” or “legs”. For a reference, kinesiology does not have a term called “kicking” and it explains why swimming coaches have trouble teaching this skill by focusing on “hips” and “legs”. Following the logic described above, kinesthetic awareness and neuromuscular efficiency can be trained and they are not God-given ability. For more information click here.
If you are a struggling swimmer you will find out how to swim with less resistance and enjoy swimming. Experienced swimmers would learn how to move through the water with less energy and significantly improve their swimming times.
Dancing and Beyond
Traditional methods of dancing instruction do not improve functional body movement and they focus mostly on teaching dancing figures syllabus. Body movement training is not effective and it is conducted without a proper understanding of the science of human movement and anatomy. As a result, conventional dancing instruction does not produce meaningful results and contributes to a high dropout rate.
Dancing and Beyond will teach you how to move properly before learning dancing steps and figures. It will give you an opportunity to learn a science-based functional movement and to lay out the foundation for learning dancing movements to make true progress, and the ability to sustain dancing for years to come. Private sessions, workshops and group classes are available upon request. For more information follow this link:
