Building a better foundation
Whether you are a circus performer, an accrobat, a gymnast, an Olympic lifter, a X-Fit athlete, or any form of athlete engaged in the rigors of intense training and sports specialization, it is important to understand the consequences that injury to an athlete’s connective tissue support system will have on their potential for coordinated, pain free movement.
When a structural dysfunction resulting from an injury like a fall or a strong impact with an external body or a wrong move is not recognized, its impact on the body will have life long repercussions. This dysfunction to the athlete’s support system will continue to interact negatively with all future athletic movements, creating a series of performance limiting compensations that will ultimately compromise the athlete’s likelyhood for success.
It is a priority to rapidly restore balance in the athlete’s support system to avoid further structural dysfunction, dysfunction that will be exacerbated through the continued efforts of training and competition.

Addressing the problem conventionally
In passive modes of therapy the client abdicates responsibility for his body’s dysfunction to a therapist. This common approach suffers from creating a neurological disconnect between the structural dysfunction and the client’s nervous system. This is the “Fix me” mentality. It is popular in our instant gratification, fast food society, however it is rarely successful and at best yields only temporary and superficial results.

The Adaptive Bodywork difference
Adaptive Bodywork puts the clients back into the driver’s seat empowering them with the tools they need to rapidly regain control of their structural rehabilitation and pain relief.
As a team the client and therapist are able to work efficiently towards recreating a state of youthfulness in the client’s tissues and movement potential.
Directed by the therapist, the client uses movement to create a sensory feedback loop that acts as his roadmap for the exploration and restoration of his compromised tissues.
Being in control gives the client the necessary confidence to effectively address their issues at a rate with which they are comfortable.
This active approach maintains the connection between the client’s physiology or structure and his/her neurology or movement patterns, thereby integrating the work in real time.
In this way Adaptive Bodywork reboots the client’s neural-myofascial connection, enhances proprioception, increases range of motion and lost mobility, removes debilitating pain and restores more efficient movement patterns rapidly.

The benefit to the practitioner
Adaptive Bodywork is an active approach that saves time by directly targeting only the compromised structures while avoiding needlessly spending time in areas without dysfunction.
With the application of Adaptive Bodywork the therapist remains balanced and relaxed at all times. Most of the applications are done by foot, effortlessly leveraging body weight in a way that is gentle, slow and controlled. A simple transfer of weight from one foot to the other effects great change without ever physically compromising the therapist in anyway.
This approach teaches superb body mechanics that are easy for both client and therapist while greatly rejuvinating the body wide connective tissue matrix, from head to toe.

Aches and Pains?
Nobody likes them. They are symptomatic of the ugly iceberg of structural dysfunction rearing its ugly head to make you take notice.
Everyone's body is closing in on them but nobody knows what to do about it.
Independently of whether we do more or we do less, we are progressively becoming shrink wrapped in our connective tissue support system.
It seems like the law of diminishing returns. The more we train, the tighter we get.
Things start to hurt, mobility is lost and inevitably technique suffers. We 
begin to spiral out of control as compensations, compromised form, and overtraining pave the way to injury, wasted time and finally disinterest in our former passions.

Is this really necessary or inevitable?
Are we doomed to degeneration, dysfunction and disrepair?
What can be done to maintain our bodies?

Adaptive Bodywork is a holistic modality that stems from Rolf Structural Integration and is developed by Structural Integrators. Practitioners of Adaptive Bodywork view the body holistically and use their bodies adaptively to do the work (hands, feet, arms, elbows etc.) on a variety of surfaces (floor, table, bench, etc.).
The work realigns and properly tensions the client’s fascial support network, laying down a new and more youthful structural architecture. The client is engaged and participates actively during this process.
The initial unit focuses on the integration of parts or segments of the body with the objective of creating more efficient movement patterns. This approach enhances the structural and functional integrity of these tissues, 
relieving pain, increasing mobility, & functional range of motion

Unit II Assessment & Corrective Strategies

In Unit II we will be developing the skills and vocabulary necessary for effective body reading and the ability to relate the findings in a non ambiguous fashion. These body reading skills will be combined with other objective screening and assessment protocols to quickly and clearly demonstrate exactly what is happening in our client's support systems, both statically and dynamically. Equipped with this information we will then be in the position to relocate our client's bodies in a better place, one that optimizes their postural support strategy and energy efficiency. 

These assessments will serve to develop effective Adaptive Bodywork corrective strategies that initially target the client's weakest link. Using an iterative algorithm that employs correctives and retesting, we will progressively develop functional movement behaviours that are both healthy and sustainable. 

The 2 day workshop will be punctuated with a Ground Force Method movement flow series that will serve to reintroduce us to the fundamental neuro-developmental sequence that serves as the basis for all effective human locomotion. This series will help bridge the gap between the structural/bio-mechanical work accomplished over the weekend and the neural component needed to eventually re-pattern the new movement behaviours at a reflexive level.

Having addressed Movement with it's mobility-stability components we will conclude by putting you on the development path you need to be on to help sustain function and health. Using the FCS (functional capacity screen) we will determine if fitness is your first obstacle or if we need to go back down the chain and shore up elements of health and function before continuing. Are the athletes or clients ready to safely explore the next dimension of performance by adding capacity training to their routines?
