Corrective Integrated Neuro-Kinetics: a revolutionary program that transforms the way the body moves and behaves from the inside out.
When we are born our movements are natural and effortless but by adolescence to early adulthood most of our bodies will transform into one of 8 main structures:
Classic Sway Back
Compensated Sway Back
Classic Flat Back
Compensated Flat Back
These types are recognizable for their poor posture, uneven muscle development, impaired athletic performance and weakened areas prone to pain and chronic injury. We blame this on everything from genetics (“I have a big ribcage” or “Bunions run in my family”) to aesthetics (“I can’t do that exercise it gives me bulky quads”). Yet children don’t have bunions or bulky quads and most of their ribcages look the same. If you look back at early childhood photos you will likely see an image of yourself with a straight back, strong knees, a normal ribcage, and an overall normal body shape. In short, you will see yourself with ideal structure.
You may have attempted to correct these weak areas through fitness programs or physical therapy and found that, despite some improved muscle tone, you still look the same. Moreover, your injuries return or appear in other areas. This is because fitness programs and physical therapy cannot change body structure. But far from accepting your structure as permanent, it is important to understand that you make your body structure. And that means that you can change it once you understand that body structure is simply a collection of energy lines.
What’s an Energy Line?
An energy line is a sequence of nerve impulses along a given path that tell the muscles they touch to engage in the direction and angle of that path. Energy lines are reflexes that occur with little awareness by the person. Gradually these energy lines shape the body by contouring muscles and pulling bones into the alignment of the energy lines.
We recognize these shapes as structures or body types. When we are born we have ideal energy lines creating functional movement patterns and proper support. Overtime, new energy lines develop from social mirroring (either familial or communal), improper sports technique, hypermobility syndrome, and repeated unnatural activities (prolonged sitting, computer use, texting, etc.). As we perform more unnatural activities and less natural exercise (i.e. outdoor play not leaning over a treadmill), we see more of these dysfunctional energy lines at earlier ages.
