MOVEMENT IS LIFE
"Improve the quality of the process & you improve the quality of life itself"
NEUROMOVEMENT® & BRAIN PLASTICITY
The Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® is a holistic approach to human functioning based in the understanding that movement is the language of the brain.
Movement is not only perceived through physically moving the body in space, there is also movement in thinking, emotions and feeling. Movement is involved in all actions of the self. The ABM NeuroMovement approach recognizes the brain to be a self organizing information system with mind and body integrated at all times.
The Anat Baniel Method® is science based and encompasses principles of neuroplasticity. It has been proven that the human brain is incredibly plastic and has the capacity to change greatly through its experience of movement throughout life.
To learn more about neuroplasticity view the TED talk titled The Elastic Brain by Dr. Michael Merzenich. In this talk he discusses the growing evidence of brain plasticity and describes the incredible power of the brain and its ability to re-wire itself.

"The approach here, far wiser, far more subtle, truly holistic, far more ingenious, far more in accord with how brain development occurs, shows ways to access the child's OWN brain plasticity, and yields far greater results, so that the children can spontaneously grow from within.
I have seen the peace on the faces of these children as their minds and plastic brains suddenly begin to integrate what they have learned for the first time, the explosion of joy at their first steps and watched them grow and become more independent."
