Body Remapping in the Brain Through NeuroMovement®
WHY MOVEMENT? WHY THE BRAIN?
The Brain and nervous system control all functions in our bodies. Movement is the means by which we first explore our surroundings and the gravitational field to seek nurture and safety. That is how we begin to map our bodies in our brains when we are babies. The more abundant and varied the experience, the higher the resolution of the map, the more refined the movement, the more confident the function. That map does not become "fixed" at a certain age, as previously believed, but we can change it at will (Brain Plasticity), for better or for worse depending on the quality, variety, and novelty of the information we feed our brains through our experience.
"Movement is the language of the Brain" -Anat Baniel.
Without movement humans would not have language, writing, thinking, learning, music, nurture, reproduction. Life as we know it, would not be possible.
"...There is no other reason to have a brain. Think about it. Movement is the only way you have of affecting the world around you." -Daniel Wolpert, NeuroScientist
HOW DOES THIS RELATE TO ABM® OF NEUROMOVEMENT®?
NeuroMovement® is a "learning-through-movement" method that helps people discover their potential in learning new ways of doing what they do via waking up the brain to themselves through attention-to-movement. This new learning of the "self" can enhance all aspects of human function, including physical, cognitive, emotional, and social.
Such improvement of function tends to have therapeutic results as in:
- reduced pain
- improved freedom of movement
- increased vitality
HOW IS NEUROMOVEMENT® APPLIED OR PRACTICED?
NeuroMovement® relies on its Nine Essentials and carefully and mindfully drafted movement to inform and revamp the brain via two modalities:
Transformational Movement Lessons (TML). Verbally guided lessons by a teacher to a group or a sole individual. Participants lie on the floor or sometimes are in sitting or standing.
Functional Synthesis (FS). These are private, one-on-one lessons in which movement is introduced manually from teacher (practitioner)to student (client).
THE NINE ESSENTIALS
These are nine essential concepts that we can readily apply in our daily life to potently drive changes in the brain. You can start implementing these essentials today. In fact, if there is anything of practical take-home value on this website that you can start working with today is these essentials. You will notice a significant difference in how you perceive yourself and how you start being more mindful and aware of yourself, your actions and your interactions with others and the environment (Learn more and download the free 9 Essentials e-book by using this LINK).
What Mauricio says about the Nine Essentials:
"As a student of NeuroMovement® in training, I first dismissed these nine essentials as gimmicky or cliched and accepted them purely at face-value. Now I see that as a terrible mistake that has taken me a few years to acknowledge and correct, and I presently insist my clients, as well as myself, practice them and integrate them into their daily lives. The results in their response to the work and the improvement on my skill set are remarkable" -Mauricio Herrador

CHARLIE CHAPLIN – AS I BEGAN TO LOVE MYSELF
As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.
As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.
As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.
As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.
As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY”.
As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF”.
As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY”.
As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT”.
As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART”.
We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE”!
“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” –Buddha
