Do you work with patients with severe health problems?
ABMNM is a very gentle method. You will be asked by your practitioner to say if you are uncomfortable or in discomfort.
There is a lot of information on the Anat Baniel Website about how this method has helped both adults and children with recovery of function and rehabilitation.
What will my first session be like?
Your first lesson will last 45 minutes. We will talk about what brought you to BrainBodySense and what you would like to be able to do following the lessons.
The first lesson will take place on a table, similar to a massage table, floor or chair, depending on where you are most comfortable.
I will then move your body slowly and gently and talk to you about the nine essentials.
Why do the lesson times vary between 30-45 minutes?
You are asking a lot of your brain during the lesson, to wake up and form new connections and patterns. You can become very hungry and very tired. Once you have learnt all you can in a lesson it is best for you to stop and rest, to allow your brain to continue to adsorb the new learning.
I felt like I wanted to sleep after a lesson, is that okay?
Sleep helps the body to heal and recover, it allows the brain to process and consolidate. During intensives (10 lessons over 5 days) some children will just eat and sleep in between. Some adults will too. You must listen to your body and do what is best for you.
