The focus of MELT NeuroStrength is restoring the stabilization mechanisms of the shoulder and pelvic girdles, and reintegrating NeuroCore control. NeuroStrength is the most advanced level of MELT Training and adds on the final two “R’s” of MELT: Reintegrate and Repattern. Reintegration techniques reacquire the neurological pathways of the deep stabilizing mechanisms so that proper timing of the appropriate muscles for core or girdle stabilization occurs before you Repattern joint movement. Together, these additional two R’s yield the stable, efficient movement necessary for an active, pain-free lifestyle.
NeuroStrength simulates highly specialized hands-on neuromuscular techniques designed to reintegrate joint stability, erase compensatory patterns and restore optimal joint motion. Athletic and sports specific training tend to increase your chances of repetitive stress injuries if joint instability is present. Learn 19 new moves that give you and your clients a new way to restore joint stability and control and take your ability to help others to a whole new level.
The required 6-week pre-training course will enhance your familiarity with MELT concepts and language, fine tune your knowledge and cuing, and give you an understanding of how the MELT moves you already know relate to NeuroStrength. You’ll also have an opportunity to practice and embody several key NeuroStrength moves prior to your arrival at the live training.
