Proprioceptive Neuro-Muscular Facilitation (PNF) - how my classes heal.

Updated: Feb 22, 2019

Did you know that all my classes include the principles of PNF (proprioceptive neuro-muscular facilitation) technique?




PNF was originally developed for rehabilitation over 70 years ago and includes repeating a movement several times to help re-establish new beneficial movement patterns (hence the "neuro-muscular" component). And helps to develop proprioceptive awareness - the ability to sense the relative placement of our body, mostly the limbs, in space.  This approach increases blood circulation to the muscles so the muscles start to relax and get stronger. It's an amazingly gentle yet effective approach to recovering your health! It also re-establishes new beneficial movement patterns, increases blood circulation to the muscles so the muscles start to relax and builds strength.

Join one of my weekly classes or take one of my programs for back or sciatic pain - you'll feel the difference in your body - less tension, more strength and increase ease of movement.
