It is important to understand that once there has been a trauma, an injury, or a loss, the person is no longer the same. The soldier or car accident victim who has lost a leg has a different body than before. His or her brain needs to learn how to organize a whole “new” body and all of its movements and actions.
The old patterns no longer work, or they work only partially. This might sound discouraging but it needn’t be once we understand that the brain can change, powerfully and rapidly, to create ingenious new solutions.
NeuroMovement® starts with where the person is right now—with what s/he can do. We guide each person through lots of gentle movements and other experiences, making sure the brain are flooded with new information. With new information, the brain awakens to creating new connections and discovers how to successfully organize its “new” body and how to manage its new self.
