Description

We rely on proprioception to produce coordinated, healthy movement. Dancers and athletes in particular rely on proprioceptors for optimal performance. Injuries, big or small, disrupt this built in auto correct system and this disruption often leads to compensatory injuries or repetitive injuries such as habitual ankle sprain, and misaligned posture. Hence an injury recovery program is not complete until the proprioceptors regain their full functioning capacity.

In this workshop, you will learn the function and importance of proprioceptors, how they work, how injuries affect proprioception, what happens when one loses proprioceptive awareness, and last but not least, how to rehab impaired proprioception through dynamic spiral movement and even incorporating ‘taboo’ movement as part of the rehab program.

This workshop is for practitioners who are interested in finding rehabilitation exercises that target the nervous system.

Objectives

  • Correct altered proprioception
  • Restore the sensitivity of the proprioceptors which inevitably improves one’s movement coordination and sense of balance
  • Enhance self-awareness and responsiveness to good and bad movement patterns, so one is able to self correct bad movement habits
  • Relax the nervous system by reviving the inherent ability to balance

Concepts & Techniques

  • All coordinated movement depends on proprioception.
  • Proprioception is knowing where the body is in space.
  • Proprioceptors are messengers imbedded in muscles and joints
  • Spatial awareness comes about through this process.
  • Injury causes altered proprioception because it alter and/or limit the range of motion in the injured area
  • To restore altered proprioception, we have to restore the range of motion.
  • Since all joints and muscles are designed to move in spiral patterns, the most effective way to restore range of motion in the body is through spiral movement. However, in order for the restoration to be complete, we need the full participation of the brain.
  • This workshop is designed to first capture the full attention of the brain, then hold the brain’s attention throughout a series of of smooth, continuous, spiral movement of the neck, feet and spine, where there are the highest concentration of proprioceptors.
  • This is essentially a mindfulness movement training program.
