A Personal Message from Jocelyn Olivier
Everything I learned about bodywork I learned from my clients; that is, through empirical evidence and practice. I attribute my informal training as the catalyst to a unique way of looking at things. It lead to the innovation of a new approach to problem-solving coordination-confusion.
Our work at Healus is a synthesis of many approaches and techniques that address the essential need of maintaining our bodies in good function throughout a lifetime so that our older years are not spent in disability and degenerative disease.
Although NMR deals primarily with the biomechanics of the body, the interconnectedness of all systems of the body cannot be denied. Neuromuscular inefficiencies influence all body systems from cognitive to digestive. They are a tremendous source of stress on the life force and energy resources. I believe they are one of the primary causes of aging and deterioration.
At the Healus Neuro Rehab Center, we have discovered that addressing the right system in the right order is paramount to getting results. Simply doing the right biomechanical moves will not change a system that is unable to sustain correction. So if you notice you are still limited on results after many previous bodywork sessions this is a factor to consider.
With NeuroMuscular Reprogramming each session is an exciting exploration. The discovery of each body is different as its history has evolved through layers of “complexification” – similar to our understanding of the body and similar to evolution itself. We have taken the body apart into systems and hierarchies, but it is truly a unified whole that can be addressed from any direction and needs to be addressed from more than one direction at once. Our work has proven that NeuroMuscular Reprogramming NMR is an ESSENTIAL component in re-education and rehabilitation.
It all begins with the breath. The body cannot be powerful without the proper engagement and use of the diaphragm muscle. Weakness in the diaphragm creates instability in structure from bottom to top. This argues for the need to address the prevalent epidemic of stress before any other corrective work since stress suppresses diaphragmatic breathing. We have found this to be true at Healus. My colleagues and I work daily with people who have searched far and wide for a solution to their physical problems only to find it with our approach of integrated modalities that are incorporated into each and every treatment we provide: NeuroMuscular Reprogramming, Brain Function Facilitation, and Emotional Energetic Stress Release, Breathing re-education, CranioSacral Rebalancing and other bodywork.
In my more than 40 years of private practice, I have come to appreciate that we have more control over our bodies than most thought possible. We are truly involved in promoting Conscious Evolution Through Somatic Education.
See you in the clinic – or in the classroom – where we will share everything we know to help your body work better and make your life easier!
