This is a great article by one of my mentors Phillip Beach DO, LAc. He discusses the need for bringing the body back into tune via evolutionary and developmental postures of rest, standing up from the ground, and stimulating our sensory organs. His work is more detailed in the book Muscles and Meridians: The Manipulation of Shape. (http://www.amazon.com/Muscles-Meridians-The-Manipulation-Shape/dp/0702031097
I have been evaluating and treating movement for 13 years and this addition to my tool bag to evaluate and improve rest to re-tune the body has been life changing for my own body and a game changer for my athletes.
What are your thoughts? Do you use any tool to evaluate or prescribe treatment for improving development movement patterns?
