Movement is an act of changing physical location or position or having this changed. It’s a sequencing of segments or a synchronous dissociation of body segments.
-Lenny Parracino, Soft Tissue Therapist to the Clippers
We create an environment to assist you in expanding and maximizing your body’s potential to move. We leverage the three-dimensionality of the body’s design and architecture and teach you how to become more adaptable, durable, strong and powerful in your movement. It’s not just about the muscles you see, but maybe more about the muscles you don’t see. It’s about performing at a higher level. It’s about developing mental fortitude and physical resilience for life, health and for athletic performance.
We anchor to the unifying principals of Applied Functional Science which is the foundation for the strategies we use with each individual. Everyone’s function is unique based on who you are, your history and what you want to do. Our system will have you feeling and moving better in your body for any type of movement, on any level.
When I move, you move
When you initiate movement in one part of your body it extends and expands throughout your entire body. There's a ripple effect, as if to throw a pebble in a pond...it creates a reaction, a chain reaction. This is also the case with all of human function and the beginning of every movement is essential to the impact of the end.
If you do a back swing in golf for example it creates a chain reaction up to your head and down to your toes. Understanding what's suppose to happen with every segment in all three planes of motion is understanding the chain reaction biomechanics (CRB) of the backswing in golf. It's the movement blueprint we use for assessing, rehabbing and building programs for our clients. It's the foundation for creating authentic motion throughout the body for a proper chain reaction to occur and to enhance movement fluidity and efficiency.
Bodies are thought of as in parts and pieces, muscles, etc. as if they're disconnected and function in isolation. However, CRB is understanding the integration of body parts (segments) moving to complete a particular task. This is the reason why there's a misconception as to why there does not need to be a direct connection for the function of one joint to effect the function of another. It also explains why rehab sometimes doesn't work or how the same dang injury keeps reoccurring.
At the end of the day all segments are connected like a chain and therefore they also function like a chain. When you move one, you move another, you move them all.
Think motions, not muscles.
