Canberra Movement Therapy
Canberra Movement Therapy uses a combination of acupuncture, massage, Postural Restoration Institute techniques, Anatomy in Motion, Neurokinetic Therapy and Movement ideas to help bring your body back to optimal alignment.
The human body is a system of interrelated and interconnected systems. These systems can only work effectively when in harmony with other systems. The bone and muscular structure is no different. Joints, bones, muscles and the nervous system will always adapt or modify in response to their environment.
Habits, routine and injury can result in certain body parts to become unresponsive, tight, stressed, weak or long, and ultimately painful. Your body will always adapt and modify its movement in response to stress placed upon it. Our goal is to discover why and how your body has modified itself in response to its environment and function.
Movement therapy is a process of learning how to integrate each joint, muscle and system into a fully adaptive and responsive body.
In a typical session you will experience the following:
Detailed discussion of your previous medical history, experience, injury history and any health concerns.
Assessment of your body's alignment and mobility in all planes of motion and a detailed photo or video analysis of static and dynamic movement.
Treatment will consist of a combination of acupuncture, massage and manipulation of tissues and muscles. Three dimensional movement re-education targets all 360 joints and 206 bones of your body to encourage and restore fluid movement.
We view the body as a whole integrated system in order to assist your body to regain optimal movement and well being. Your body is completely analysed from head to toe to gain all information possible to help you. We align, balance and restore motion in your body to address imbalances, prevent injuries and boost performance.
Education is fundamental to discovering how your body functions by experiencing changes which will occur in each session.
You will be involved in the treatment to sustain changes in the nervous system. This is the key to lasting results and ownership of your health.
Increase mobility, improve flexibility, gain strength and fine-tune movement for everyday living and athletic performance
