Welcome to Therapeutic Movement Seminars, where we invite you to view movement, exercise and musculoskeletal injury in a whole new light. We know that the map is not the territory—the menu is not the meal. In other words, we look at movement & rehabilitation from a different perspective—conceptually and experientially.
Similarly, memorizing anatomical facts is not the same as understanding movement—and prescribing exercise is clearly not the same as teaching movement skills. Exercise for the purpose of building sarcomeres, improving cardio-vascular fitness or affecting connective tissue properties is fundamentally different from an exercise that seeks to teach functionally relevant movement, appropriate body mechanics, arthrokinematic control and correct posture—exercise for motor control purposes needs to be approached differently than exercise for physiological purposes.
At TMS, we specialize in the nuts and bolts of integrated movement, or how the various parts of the body cooperate with and support each other in a coordinated state of mutual benefit. In our courses, books, CDs and videos, we will be helping you to look past the exercise and see the movement, to look past the parts and see the patterns.
