Balance, Stability and Mobility Throughout the Body

Each individual has a unique balance of support and flexibility that facilitates his or her maximum integration and healthy movement.

  • Increase stability by encouraging more central (proximal) initiation of movement.  
  • Increase flexibility by encouraging peripheral (distal) initiation of movement.
  • Increasing flexibility beyond one’s ability to support and integrate is harmful. 
  • Rigidity and unnecessary restriction is equally detrimental. 

Both have ramifications throughout the entire body and one’s life.
