Wellness Movement Treatments

Wellness Movement treatment duration is based on the results of your Wellness Movement Assessment and/or what type of physical challenges you have and how long these challenges have been present. We typically find that a 6 month treatment plan effectively addresses client conditions.

Sessions at Wellness Movement Center are 1 to 2 times per week depending on how much coaching the client needs and/or how quickly the client would like to reach their health, movement and wellness potentials.

Wellness Movement Center’s Taoist Philosophy

WMC uses no specific method, style or system which limits the ability to discover our client’s authentic wellness and movement potential. Instead, we continuously adapt and flow to discover what our client’s needs are, using only what is useful in getting to the cause of the client’s wellness and movement challenge. It is an honest expression of oneself authentically, both for the instructor and the client as they are both on a journey of self-actualization.

Wellness Movement Center utilizes exercise concepts, methods and systems are based on a whole body neurological enhancement perspective using principles that embody Yoga, Feldenkrais, Pilates, Tai Chi and Chi Gong and many other movement enhancing exercises.

Performance Enhancement training principles are based on the use of body weight training and devices that require full body functional integration.

Specific training utilizes, Kettle-bells, free weights, suspension training, primal movement exercises, cables, tubing, stability balls, slide board, medicine balls and cellular exercise.

All of the wellness movement or performance enhancement plans are customized, created and designed with a scientific evidence-based approach. Each session is video tape each and for the advanced client’s we videotaped home exercise systems that are anywhere from 3 to 6 months in length. Teaching our client’s how to follow their own customized plan.

Our Unique Program Consists of Three Crucial Phases:

Phase 1: Reprogramming

When an area of the body is traumatized it can actually shut down, or inhibit certain muscles, and force other muscles to compensate. These compensatory challenges need to be reprogrammed using specific neuromuscular isolated exercises that retrains the clients’ brain and muscle communication. Key objectives include:
  • Establish Biochemical, Emotional, Nutritional and Physical balances through corrective strategies and plans.
  • Promote mobility and stability for everyday activities.
  • Correct and enhance posture.

Phase 2: Movement Journey

  • Enhance functional stability, muscular strength and endurance through dynamic integrated exercises.
  • Teach the client how to facilitate various types of functional exercise equipment that is used in the client’s home and or gym.
  • Assist the client in clearing the Functional Movement Screen. Direct correlation to real world, foundation training “base conditioning.”

Phase 3: Sustainability

Progressed exercise training often is necessary in order to ensure improvements long-term. This phase is designed to help clients build a lifelong commitment to a healthy lifestyle while preventing injuries and movement limitations.

Getting are client’s back to work, play, recreation, fitness or sports is the long term focus. The client will follow a personalized 3, 6, 8 or 12 week home exercise system and video.

Making A Positive Difference: Client Evaluation

After completing Wellness Movement Center’s Athletic Movement Assessment, Chris has now progressed past Phase 1 Sub-base Conditioning “Reprogramming,” and cleared the first stage of the Movement Assessment Process. He has entered WMC’s Phase 2 “Base Conditioning”. Chris recently went through the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) where we rated and ranked his movement quality.

The FMS is the last part of WMC’s movement assessment stage. At this stage, the client must clear the FMS and with a passing score relevant to their fitness goals. In addition, the client must also clear WMC’s branded “Dynamic Core Function Assessment” before fully re-engaging in any physical activity.
