Are you ready to revolutionise your practice, your results,

and your client's experience?

Ever looked at your client and wondered "Where do I start?" ? 

 

MOVE 

 

Takes hands on therapy from the couch into the true world of movement, the place where in reality we spend our days. More often than not, our clients present with discomfort when moving around. Do you ever truly observe their movement?

The MOVE-series has been created to

  • help practitioners truly apply theory and knowledge into practice.

  • provide you with a brand new set of tools, techniques, and ideas.

  • help you explore the freedom of no fixed procedures or construct.

  • demonstrate and ensure optimum, measurable outcomes.

  • give you the confidence to fully explore your potential as a professional in the industry.

The MOVE-series will help you steer your clients in a direction of improved function for an improved life, helping you understand the software that is our unique self. 

The MOVE-series carries 14 CPD hours per two-day module.

Pearson's Law:

“ That which is measured improves. That which is measured and reported, improves exponentially”

Course Details

MOVE 1


Duration: 2 days Course Manual provided. All about expanding the box, not jumping out of it. Taking the skills you possess and helping you to observe, understandand apply them in a new way. In order to do this, we need to bring your shared knowledge into the room and explore

  • the latest fascia news and it's relationship to therapy,
  • introduce muscle physiology,
  • neurology
  • and start to play with how our bodies acquire movement patterns and what shapes them through adaptation, environment and behaviour and not to be guided by the presentation of pain.
At the end of these first 2 days we will have helped you steer your ship and align your approach as a therapist to
  • truly observe and comprehend what their physiology is and isn't doing and connect your client to experience this reality for themselves, setting the platform for future progress.
  • be able to note what you are seeing in your client in relation to major movement patterns off the couch before and after demonstrating functionality in the muscles, neurology and fascia.
As always the content will expand far beyond the confines of the description. Helping people moving up and down through levels of ability to ensure progress is at the centre of the course. Pre-Course Learning
  • 45 minute video of muscle quality assessment and practice
  • Introduction to neurology book
  • Pre-Course Webinar




MOVE 2


Duration: 2 days MOVE 2 will assist you to measure and demonstrate functional improvements in the whole body by making small adjustments and connections with the foot and lower limb. This is a workshop environment where the asessment from MOVE 1 will be built into MOVE 2 as we progress our understanding of

  • Torque
  • Force
  • Vectors
  • Events
  • Emotion
  • Adaptive behaviour
Throughout the MOVE series a number of training tools will be used to enhance your experience. Games | Podcasts | Models | Group Work | Demos | Smart Phone Filming | Interactive Quizzes | Handouts | Reflecting | Testing the Theory | Repetition | Break Out | Challenges | Debates | Homework | Webinar Support | Journalling | Videos | Pen and Paper | Logging | Recording | Direct Instruction amongst many more.




MOVE 3


Duration: 2 Days Pre - Course 45 min video . Neurological Receptors and their roles 45 min video. Your hands - an orchestra in the making. "No one ever discovered anything new by colouring inside the lines" ~ Thomas Vasquez Now to really start playing! We've spotted the individual muscle function, the pair, the chain and the affects of ligaments on behaviour. Pain is a construct in the brain created to primarily protect you. MOVE 3 delves into neurology on a receptor level and its full application. Each receptor responds to a stimulus. A nociceptor ( Don't worry, you will learn what they are and what they do!) for example will create a withdraw response that was created as a physiological pattern. A golgi receptor will affect range of movement, stretch and muscle bahaviour. A pacini will repsond to pressure and vibration. If you itch you scratch. If you have pain you will often apply direct pressure to relieve. We naturally rub...stroke...slap...and do many other conscious/subconscious actions to change the outcome in the body and what we experience. If a receptor is over-stimulated we will put an opposite in, most of the time without realising what we are doing, to reduce the signal. We also "steal" help from elsewhere to adapt our function to complete to a standard teh action that has been requested. It is often only when this adaptation reaches overload that clients turn up in clinic. We can adapt our hands on work to understand

  • Which receptor is causing the problem.
  • Where it is located.
  • What impact it is having on the physiology.
  • What it is connected to.
  • What hands on approach to take using your skills to positively affect the receptor and alter the signal.
Outcomes and Goals of MOVE 3
  • Confident moving around teh body assessing and checking function.
  • Confident observing adaptations and behaviour and noticing what it is connected with.
  • Confident to apply hands on work to afect change and regulation in the system.
  • Confident you can demonstrate the change to the client.
  • Confident to refer when it is a hardware or illness issue.

Fee Structure


MOVE 1: £300 MOVE 2: £300 MOVE 3: £300 BUNDLE DEAL: £750





Paula and Gus have a colourful combination of skills ranging from pain management, sport science, fitness, professional sport, both as coaches and playing and 25 years of working with wonderful people in clinic and class. 

"We often have a practice that we don’t fully understand it’s full purpose and reasoning, and we often have huge amounts of theory and wonder how to put it into practice. We aim to fuse these two concepts together with fun and integrity. Helping make the complex become natural and sharing our combined authentic wisdom."

What to Expect on MOVE 123

Apart from covering new and exciting techniques, practical tools, and a fresh new interpretation of the term "biomechanics", we will also be exploring the "lighthouse philosophy".

Understanding the role of being a facilitator as a therapist, recognising the fact that the client is ultimately responsible for their own "healing". A theme that acts as the foundation to our workshops.

It is how the client feels and experiences your input and their’ motivation that will ultimately change the direction of their pain perception. Always being aware of what our clients have been previously told.

It looks to discover where and how clients adapt, behave and ultimately respond to their environments and life in ways that may not serve their physical and emotional potential, leading to pain, limits and loss of direction.

By gently observing their behaviour and movement we are able to witness avoidance response, techniques and skills your client uses to adapt and function in their life in reaction to external and internal influences.

We are here to be the “lighthouse" rather than a "tugboat", the guide that stands still and lets’ clients’ find their way to safety, on their terms and inside their ability, or moving their performance to the next level with a nudge. Gently changing their life “on the slow curve” rather than 180 degree turns at 100 mph, which ultimately hurts rather than heals.
