Core Exercise vs. Activation

Have you been told you need to activate your core muscles before exercising or lifting?

You are returning to your active lifestyle and workout routines. A common part of a well-rounded workout routine focuses on your core.

Great core function is much more than doing a bunch of crunches. However, when choosing any core exercise you make one big assumption — that your core is activating correctly.Ā  Read more

Struggling With a Child’s Behavior?

It’s here!
Your special invitation…

Be the first to experience our new on-demand program to support children.

7 Steps to Calm is a seven-week on-demand program needing only minutes a day for specific movements to help calm your child and restore peace at home.

What is the basis of the program?

Over the past 15 years we found that when your child’s micromovements (tiny movements within the body) are disorganized due to birth, injuries or medical procedures, their behavior and coordination are disorganized too. When gentle rocking and wiggling movements are used to guide your child’s body into better organization, the behavior, sensory, focus and coordination improve too!

Our name for the process is the BridgingĀ® Technique. It is an engineering-based approach within an early developmental hierarchy, so the results are self-sustaining. Read more

Stress happens when a child’s behavior ramps up like a rocket or gets stuck in high alert. Both of these are examples of poor modulation. Read more
