Centered sets out to define a scope of practice – the integrative movement practitioner. The practice encompasses:
An understanding of the body’s movement potential
Analysis of the available movement in the body by identifying holding patterns caused by dysfunctional movement in the individual
Changing restrictions through techniques such as muscle energy, innovative Pilates set-ups on the apparatus and hands-on work
Developing a whole body approach for strengthening and brain imprinting exercises to reinforce a new way of moving
Self practice and continued education
320 pages, highly illustrated paperback
