How can the Anat Baniel Method (ABM) help you?

Using the the Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® (ABM) thousands of people over the last 30 years have:

  • Overcome pain (e.g. back, neck, joint, shoulder, and general aches and pains)
  • Reversed aging
  • Reached new levels of performance in seemingly miraculous ways
  • Made huge strides in treating brain injuries or strokes.

Anat Baniel helps people—from children with special needs to stroke survivors to high-performing athletes—overcome pain and limitation, and reach new heights of performance, making the seemingly impossible possible. (Anat Baniel Center)

In addition to helping people improve their range and ease of movement, overall well-being, balance and coordination, ABM can specifically benefit:

  • Athletes, dancers, and musicians
  • Children with developmental disabilities and special needs
  • People recovering from stroke or brain trauma
  • People with movement limitations

Evolving from the work of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, the Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® is a revolutionary, holistic approach to human functioning and health.

The Method uses movement in ways that awaken the remarkable capacity of the brain to create new connections and new possibilities. People overcome pain, reverse aging, and reach new levels of performance in seemingly miraculous ways.

An Innovative, Science-Based Method Supported By Brain Plasticity Research

Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® evolved from over 30 years of Anat Baniel’s close study and experience with practical applications of brain plasticity principles with thousands of clients. The method’s approach is founded in neuroscience and the biodynamics of the human body, and supported by current brain plasticity research.

The Nine Essentials:

  • Movement with Attention
  • Slow
  • Variation
  • Subtlety
  • Enthusiasm
  • Flexible goals
  • The Learning Switch
  • Imagination and Dreams
  • Awareness

Developed by Anat Baniel, a trained Clinical Psychologist, dancer, and close professional associate of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais for over a decade, the Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® has evolved with spectacular success over the past 30 years.

Anat’s work is at the forefront of the emerging brain plasticity field, helping wake up the brain to its greater potency for learning and change throughout life. It is a a scientifically based methodology with practical tools for waking up the brain. (Anat Baniel Method Neuromovement Center in San Rafael, CA) 

NeuroMovement® can help you think, feel, and move better.

Our brain organizes and controls our movements, thoughts, and emotions. It tells our muscles when and how to contract. In turn, our movements provide information that the brain needs to grow and organize itself. This mind-body connection is key to our development as children, to continuing vitality as we age, and the idea behind the Anat Baniel Method® of NeuroMovement®.

How well your brain directs your muscles depends on the quality of information it receives. Your brain’s pathways are flexible and elastic and as you learn new facts, complete new tasks, and perform new movements, your brain changes and rewires to reflect these experiences.

When you give your brain the right information, its commands to your body can become faster and better organized—you develop new neural connections that can improve your athletic performance, your recovery from injury or stroke, your flexibility, strength, balance and coordination.

Improved neural connections are at the foundation of the Anat Baniel Method (ABM), which has a track record of effectiveness in improving the functioning of adults and children with special needs such as cerebral palsy, ADD/ADHD, stroke, and brain injury.

ABM was developed by Anat Baniel, a clinical psychologist and dancer who was a close associate of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. 

ABM is based on the principle that to improve, you have to involve both your mind and body, and feed the brain new information. A precise series of movements, executed with heightened awareness and attention, can create new connections in your brain, giving it the improved information it needs to guide your body to higher levels of coordination and function.
