While working as a Pilates Teacher, Biomechanics Coach, Myofasical Movement Therapist and Clinical Massage Therapist over the past 5 years I had to learn that working with the body only, is often not enough. Therefore I am now launching a new aspect to my business of including Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) to my body work. NLP is a form of coaching that looks at how we think. It works on how we give meaning to our experiences and how that meaning affects us. It further helps us to turn those representations of our experiences into behaviours and strategies that help us achieve our goals. It originated in a research project in the 1970ies that looked at the reasons why some people seem to always be successful while others always experience bad luck. Nowadays it is popularly used in the corporate sector to improve leadership as well as in marketing, sales, business and life coaching or as a more pragmatic, goal orientated alternative to counselling.
Two of you have the one-time opportunity to benefit from this enriched, powerful, multidimensional kind of movement coaching and therapy for free.
Working on your body only, reduces yourself to only that. -a body, when you know that you are a lot more than that. You know how much your mind affects your body already, do you not? You are simply missing out on the mind, in what often claims to be a body and mind discipline. With Yoga and Pilates we can affect the mind to some degree via the body, but what if you could affect the body via the mind in the same session? It may seem logical to rely on manual therapy or movement work to tackle your physical problems, however you may just keep putting plasters on a symptom rather than exploring all possible causes and tools to help you get rid of it.
With the inclusion of NLP into your movement session you can start working at the very root of your physical issue. You will have many more tools to manage, minimise and eliminate your symptoms. No matter what your goal or problem is, allowing yourself to work on it both in body and mind will mean even more powerful results, as you will achieve them both on a physical and mental level. Yes, you can go for a massage, a Pilates class and an NLP session and try juggle all the balls. But what if you could work with someone who will be able to look at you, listen to you and treat you with the knowledge and skill of all of those disciplines and help you achieve your goals with a powerful approach rooted in all of those disciplines. After all everything in the body is connected.
We all know that our posture suffers when we are depressed, stressed or anxious. So would it not make sense to change what is causing the bad posture as well as improving the posture itself? Neuroscience is currently offering a lot of new insight into how the brain and the body interact and support each other. In fact the body and mind are not only connected, -they are one thing. For centuries we have learned to think of ourselves as a mass of different structures and systems. A brain, a body, a nervous system, muscles and bones...This way of dissection is useful when we are on the operating table, however it does not serve us at all when we want to improve our whole embodied living being.
The Institute of Heartmath has found brain cells in the heart and gut. They concluded that your heart communicates on some neurological level with your brain and so does your gut. Considering how much we sometimes want to, or ought to listen to our heart and gut, are you surprised? Is it any wonder that we get heart ache and stomach problems when we are in situations we find difficult to deal with? Biomechanist and author Stephen Braybrook has been developing a new kind of movement theory about how much influence our subconscious has on our body, and how we can use this knowledge to make powerful physical changes, using our neurological connections to our subconscious. Polestar Pilates, an International Pilates Method founded by Physiotherapist Brent Anderson also has recognised the benefit of bringing NLP, among other therapies, into Pilates practice and have shown amazing results by applying some of the ideas into their movement work.
I have been able to maintain a physically able body by using traditional movement work, yet it was when I allowed myself to explore the thinking patterns in my mind and condition my brain like my body, that I achieved changes that truly make me feel like a new person. I am more relaxed, more in control of my diet and loving of my body. My chronic stomach problems have gone and I know how to control them when they want to flare up. I am able to manage my old injuries with a mixture of physical and mental exercises and I finally feel like I can really embrace life.. I am experiencing an all new me and I regret not integrating NLP into my own movement practice sooner.
Imagine you were to reach your goals by being able to change your movement patterns as well as your thinking patterns and how the two reference each other as they change and the endless opportunities this gives you in your life.
How can you have it? For free!
As this is a new way of working for me I would like to invite you to experience 3 sessions completely free of charge to work on any problems you may have. The only thing I ask in return is that you allow me to use your work with me as a casestudy in my marketing materials. This means you would allow me to use some video footage, photos or quotes from our session (anonymously of course) on my website or social media. And you would commit to giving me a short written testimonial/written feedback after each session. Only one more requirement would be that the 3 sessions can take place between the 21st of November and the 15th of December.
What happens in the session?
If you choose to take advantage of this offer we will arrange 3 one hour sessions. They are your private sessions with me, so no one else will be taking part. Before we meet we would have a short conversation on the phone about what it is you want to work on. In the first session we would spend a little bit of time defining the issue or your goal a little further. I may help you really define your goal in a detailed, realistic and personal way if the goal is not quite clear yet. Then we will start doing a mixture of physical work, such as exercises, or manual work, such as the use of some massage techniques, depending on what is appropriate and helpful, as well as some mental exercises that will help you explore the issue you are having on a mental level. I may just ask you some questions during our movement work, or it may be helpful to focus on talking through the issue in some of the sessions. It will very much depend on what you bring to the session and what we decide will be most helpful for you.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your case, have any further questions or would like to sign up. I only have capacity for 2 persons for these free casestudies. First come, first serve.
