NeuroMovement® is based on the principles of neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s capacity to reorganize and form new neural pathways. The method aims to awaken the brain’s potential for learning and transformation by providing it with the information and conditions it needs to create new connections and improve overall functioning.
The Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® consists of a series of gentle movement exercises and techniques designed to provide the brain with rich and varied sensory information. By introducing novel movement patterns and engaging the senses, the method helps the brain recognize differences, make distinctions, and discover new possibilities for action.
The key principles of the method include:
Movement with Attention: Practitioners guide individuals to explore movement with focused attention, promoting enhanced sensory awareness and a deeper connection between the brain and body.
Subtlety: The method emphasizes the importance of small, slow, and gentle movements to optimize brain engagement and minimize habitual patterns of movement.
Variation: The method introduces a wide range of movement possibilities to challenge the brain and encourage it to create new connections and pathways.
Enthusiasm and Vitality: Practitioners cultivate an atmosphere of positivity, joy, and curiosity to support the brain’s receptivity to learning and transformation.
The Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® can be applied to various contexts, including working with infants and children with developmental delays, individuals with neurological conditions such as stroke or cerebral palsy, adults seeking to improve movement and overcome pain, athletes aiming to enhance performance, and individuals interested in personal growth and well-being.
By leveraging the brain’s capacity to change, the Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® aims to facilitate the discovery of new possibilities and unlock untapped potential in individuals of all ages and abilities. It provides a framework for optimizing human development, promoting recovery, and enhancing overall vitality and well-being.
