A brain-first approach to high performance and rehab using neurocentric movement.
About us and what we do
We help you improve your movement using the power of neuroplasticity.
Whether you train for strength, skill or flexibility, everything you do is brain driven.
The brain is central to both experiencing and controlling movement, from your body and eyes, to your breathing, balance.
Pain Reduction & Movement Restoration
Modern science has shown that pain is a protection mechanism of the brain. Pain is the brain’s way of signalling danger and inhibiting movement, power and flexibility to protect you. Unfortunately, any stimulus can create pain if the brain perceives it as threatening.
By identifying where your brain is receiving poor information, we can reduce perceived threat, eliminate pain and restore your natural capacity for movement.
Performance Enhancement & Athletic Development
Whether you’re looking to improve your performance in the gym or on the pitch, your brain is at the heart of your performance.
By identifying and training underperforming parts of the brain, we can achieve almost immediate gains in performance, including:
Range of movement
Balance & coordination
We can also improve recovery from traumatic brain injuries such as concussion.
Injury Prevention & pre-habilitation
High-quality movement and a high-performing brain are integral to preventing injury.
Movements that are unfamiliar to the brain are more likely to result in injury.
By identifying the intertwined movement/neurological patterns that your brain is unfamiliar with we can personalise your training to target those areas of your brain that would be likely to cause injury in the future.
Movement, vision and balance are skills that can,
and should be trained.
One brain. Three systems.
Most techniques approach movement, strength and performance issues from a biomechanical perspective only. But our body is only one part of a trio of key systems that our brain uses to control movement and navigate our way through the world.
We use neurocentric techniques to grant you access to strength, flexibility and pain free movement followed by targeted movement to cement your access to those capabilities.
A system with reduced threat is a system that can perform.
How we move.
THE VISUAL SYSTEM
Any deficit in these systems will impact how freely we move and how well our body can perform.
If you can’t see well, balance well, or judge your body well, you won’t be able to run as fast, lift as much, or even pick up a hot drink as confidently. If you only work on developing your muscles, you’ll get slow, incremental improvements.
You need all three systems to work well together.
Unless these key movement systems are well integrated, you will never achieve longstanding physical wellbeing or your full potential.
A neuro-centric approach to movement rapidly assesses and develops all three of these essential systems, increasing your freedom and ability to move, no matter your goal.
Welcome to The Movement Brain podcast, where we discuss the possibilities of movement through a neural lens.
All movement, strength and flexibility start in the brain.
We discuss techniques to help you get the most from your training and movement practice.
