It’s time to take back self-control of your mind and body. It is time to empower yourself with Therapeutic Body Movement. TBM is a neuromuscular therapy related to spinal realignment it uses specific techniques from ancient yoga philosophy, osteo, cranial-sacral, physio, and chiropractic. It is a series of specific and slowly executed movement techniques. These techniques teach you how to release and relax your body muscles and any spinal connections that inhibit mobility. When muscles and the spine are tight and contracted, they literally lose their ability to function correctly.

Methods of sensory-motor education that use TBM improves motor control and sensation. They change learned (habitual) muscular patterns. Many people find TBM education methods to be highly effective in relieving chronic pain, improving bodily function and recovering from common musculoskeletal conditions.

In order to be most effective, TBM is a slow-moving process with internal focus and attention of the mind-body connection. The human nervous system, which controls posture and movement adjusts slowly. With practice, we are able to gradually speed up and perform movements more quickly, while still maintaining form and self-control. When we do movements quickly, we are not learning anything new. We are simply reinforcing existing learned patterns.

TBM is exploratory in nature. In practising TBM with the intention of improving posture and movement with developing new patterns; we continue to be focused on the origin of the movement, rather than the end result.

Focusing on the experience and process rather than the end result may be a difficult concept for many people to grasp. We teach our nervous system how to learn new things. When we practice a movement as if it is the first time, the body senses it and we learn something new each time. This way the learning process will be most efficient and effective. Therapeutic Movement is not about quantity. It’s about the quality of being in the moment with the movement.

TBM is performed slowly, consciously, and with the intention of focusing on the internal experience of the movement.

All students are responsible for their own health and learning. The role of the TBM educator is to empower students to take care of themselves by teaching them the tools they need to stay out of pain and continue to improve their posture, movement, and function throughout their lives.
