Injury and Rehabilitation

Injury Prevention and Recovery


NeuroMovement®/The Anat Baniel Method(sm) is a holistic approach to human functioning and action, based in the understanding that the brain organizes all movement. By accessing the amazing powers of the brain to change itself (brain plasticity) the method helps people discover how to improve the mind and body, dramatically enhancing physical, cognitive, emotional, and creative performance. 

  • The foundation of the Method is teaching the body and mind to perform movements in a harmonious, efficient manner.
  • People learn how to move in harmony with the structure of the body and utilize the brain's ability to learn and optimize. 
  • Performance of any exercise or sports activity is enhanced. The stronger muscles in the body are brought more into play, maximizing strength without a loss in flexibility.
  • Leads to easier, faster movement with greater pleasure. 
  • Helps people avoid injury. 
  • Aids with rehabilitation by promoting more complete integration of appropriate joints and muscle groups to prevent atrophy of muscles and nerves.

Golfers, skiers and snowboarders, weight lifters, runners, tennis players, cyclists and yoga students all learn how to use their bodies in ways that reduce unnecessary efforts, decrease injuries, improve coordination and transform performance


Stroke Rehabilitation and CNS Disorders


NeuroMovement®/Anat Baniel Method developed based on the principals of brain plasticity - the ability of the brain to adapt, change and reconfigure itself, which is often what is needed after trauma. Medical studies have shown conclusively that movement with attention, an element constantly emphasized in the Anat Baniel Method (sm), is essential for the development of new neural pathways which aids in the healing of central nervous system and recovery from injury for better brain health. 

The brain responds to all sorts of trauma in much the same way. First, the source of the trauma is isolated and then the brain begins to invent ways to "work around" the injured area. Even after the injury has physically healed, the brain will continue to use those alternative ways to move, think, and do the things affected by the injury. Until new or forgotten neural pathways are created or reintroduced, healing will be incomplete and the effects of the trauma may continue.

NeuroMovement®/ABM is a way to introduce possibilities where once only limitations existed.
