(Visit our Shop to read about all the benefits of this DVD)
Core Movement Integration (CMI) is a method of improving body functioning by releasing and reorganizing neuro-myofascial pathways through the body’s pelvic-spinal core. The purpose is to not only address and eliminate pain syndromes, but to maintain and to “regenerate” the body through improving functional movements of every day life. The goal is to help people live longer and better, reversing the “degeneration” patterns and greatly reducing pain, arthritic conditions, and the need for replacing body parts. CMI is based on the brain/body’s power of healing and improving through smooth, efficient movement organization, right exercising, myofascial pathway science, and the principles of Dr. M. Feldenkrais.

Just a quick little personal testimony about this work. About one year ago I started having a problem with my left shoulder probably due to overwork and Aikido training. My right shoulder was always the issue but that was pretty much resolved. The pain got to the point of not sleeping and making work not enjoyable and curtailed my workouts for the first time in years. I went for deep massage which only aggravated the situation, found a chiropractor who did active release and brought temporary relief, and started acupuncture which helped with sleep. Three weeks ago I came up to Boston for a personal retreat and to get help. Arthur graciously gave me ample time in his office in Dorchester. He quickly assessed that I was moving my shoulder muscles out of sequence and not as an “end” result of my center/pelvis moving. He also easily connected my ribs which weren’t turning. These are things I observe in others but not in myself! The following day I attended Josef’s weekly class in Watertown and took a walk after. I haven’t even been able to walk without intense pain. I am happy to report that the pain is gone and I am back to fast walking and working pain free! Thank you. –Byron Eddy, LMT
(Imagine a near future when this kind of ‘somatic’ bodywork is taught to physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and all those who really want to improve people…not just treat problems or maintain imbalanced movement habits.–Josef DellaGrotte)
