WHAT IS NEUROMOVEMENT®?
The Anat Baniel Method® (ABM) NeuroMovement® is a holistic approach to improving human functioning and action. It is based on the scientific principles of neuroplasticity - the ability of the brain to change itself.
The Nine Essentials form the core of the Method, having been developed by Anat Baniel over decades of work with children and adults, yielding transformational results. Read more about Anat and how the Method evolved here.
THE NINE ESSENTIALS
THE PLASTIC BRAIN
Decades of research done by thousands of neuroscientists has shown that the brain can change itself.
Brain plasticity describes this ability of the brain and nervous system to change structurally and functionally in response to experience. Plasticity occurs on the level of cellular changes and changes involved in cortical remapping. The most widely recognised forms of plasticity are learning, memory, and recovery from brain damage.
The brains of infants and children are extremely changeable, constantly expanding and mapping new territory. The initial involuntary movements of babies provide the information their brains need to form the recognisable patterns required to eventually organise and control their actions.
The science of brain plasticity shows how, under the right conditions, the adult brain can also restructure itself in remarkable ways. The birth of new brain cells can occur in adults, as well as children, something believed impossible not too long ago.
