Movement therapy is essentially the modern way to think about exercise to keep the body at its optimal. It is for anyone who wants to get fit, but feels overwhelmed and doesn’t know where to begin, and/or feels like they just don’t have enough time, or feels like an injury is preventing them from starting.
Movement therapy uses prescribed movements/exercises to help a person deal with an illness, a disability, or life challenges that keep them from functioning fully. Its aims are to correct posture, both static and dynamic, and to encourage all parts of the body to move as a unit in the way they were designed to, in order to enhance the person’s cognitive, physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Our movement therapists at Project DAO are experienced manual therapists, as well as qualified Personal Trainers. They will prescribe exercise programs that are not only doable given the problems you have, but will rectify the problems you have.
The program you will receive will be tailor-made to suit your needs, in terms of what your body and mind need to do in order to change, and also in terms of the time and equipment you have available. If you want to re-connect with your body and develop sustainable improvements, Movement Therapy is for you.
