Movement - your health and wellbeing depends upon it
Movementis a part of every activity we undertake - from dancing to shopping, writing to sleeping. It is fundamental to our health and wellbeing, and is what our body was designed to do.
Modern lifestyle changes - technology, machines, drive-thru eateries, online retailers - has reduced the amount of movement we do on a daily basis, to the detriment of our bodies, our brains and the connection one has with the other.
Living with a neurological condition has a further impact on the ability to move freely and well, whether this be from pain, stiffness, weakness, apathy, reduced social contact or a lack of quality sleep. This has a spiralling effect and can result in your general health, wellbeing and quality of life being negatively effected.
What can we do about it?
Simply put - everything! Your body and your brain will adapt to whatever you challenge it with.
"The body will become better at whatever you do, or don’t do. You don’t move? The body will make you better at NOT moving. If you move, your body will allow more movement." - Ido Portal
How do we do this?
Through applying the concept of neuroplasticity, where new neural pathways are established, the restoring of skills lost through damage or disease can be gained and the progression of future deterioration can be slowed.
We do this by targeting the symptoms of your neurological condition, challenging the reduced or poor movement patterns that have developed, creating new pathways to improved, freer movement. We do this using a range of different movement methods, specifically chosen for the benefits they can bring to people living with a neurological condition - from Pilates, to high intensity cardio training, Tai Chi & relaxation.
Our ultimate aim is to enable you to continue participating in everyday activities that are meaningful to you - whether that be picking up the grand/kids from school, meeting friends for dinner or hiking the national trails.
