The Story of Your Life:
Micromovements Tell It All!

Micromovements and the stories they reveal …

Your movements tell your story

One of the primary principles in the Bridging® Technique is to analyze a set of passive movements where we do the moving, not you.

These movements tell the story of how your body is actually getting you through the day. When we find a glitch, hitch, or skip, it is usually the source of your pain, weakness, and poor coordination. Read more

Bridging Technique

What is Bridging?

Bridge /ˈbrij/

noun: A time, place, or means of connection or transition.

You most commonly think of a bridge as, literally, the structure connecting two points.

In my electrical engineering coursework (way back when), a ‘bridge’ was a connection between circuits, or audio systems.

Most people think separately of the body’s structural and nervous (electrical) systems. In reality, the two are highly intertwined by movement. The intersection of the physical structural system and nervous system is at the heart of the Bridging Technique. Read more

Kinetic Konnections is Evolving!

Evolving to a new name and focused mission!

Kinetic Konnections is transforming into The Bridging Institute. After 15 years we’re growing into our next phase with a new name and more tightly focused mission — helping more people, in more ways.

Why? To sharpen our focus on what creates the magic — Bridging!  As we began working on ways to make Bridging more accessible for you with new services, it became clear that the multiple names being used might be confusing. Read more

Keeping Each Other Safe, Calm, and Moving!

Amidst rising Covid positivity rates and the usual flu season, here is a reminder of some of what we do each day to keep us all safe:

  • Information gathering the day before your appointment via our health and travel survey
  • Staggered schedules to minimize chances of encountering anyone else when you are coming or going
  • Staggered room usage allowing space to be cleaned, sanitized and ventilated for at least an hour between clients
  • Waiting in your car, or the lobby, and arriving at your appointment time

In this changing environment we actively monitor ILDPH guidelines and make changes as needed. Read more

UVC Lamps- What do they do?

UVC lamp

The coronavirus continues to be a concern and your safety is of utmost importance.

This UVC lamp (pictured) is a way we are going the extra mile for you.

Are you sensitive to chemical cleaners?

This space age looking lamp is another way we keep everything as sterile as possible without the residue of harsh chemicals. The UVC lamp also produces ozone for a one-two punch killing both surface and air borne pathogens. We use the lamp between uses of a room. Read more

It’s Been a Peanutty Year — Celebrating 18! 🎂

Eighteen years on this journey

Reflections …

I could never have imagined where this journey helping people overcome their movement and developmental challenges would take me. Such a long way from my earlier career in engineering and power systems! Surprisingly, there are so many similarities. The power system principles and physics are my go-to when I need to think through some unusual movement relationships.

At Kinetic Konnections we are always learning and understanding more about the physics of the body. These learnings are reflected in the evolution of the Bridging Technique. Over the years there have been distinctive phases of insight, and this past year was yet another. Read more
