“I began working with Josef Dellagrotte after having lived with significant chronic pain, multiple surgeries, and serious disability for more then ten years. At the time we began, I think that it is fair to say that I had become a shell of my former self, as I was unable to do basic things like shopping independently in a supermarket, pick things up, or even standing up on my own if on the ground. After working together for some time I am now mostly pain free, and have resumed almost all of the activities of a normal life in a way that I had previously thought impossible. Earlier this year I was even able to resume playing golf, something which I had dreamed of, but had previously given up on 16 years earlier. I achieved this result with Dr Dellagrotte after having been treated unsuccessfully over an extended period by topnotch physicians and highly regarded physical therapists. His approach is sophisticated, cutting edge, and highly effective, and will pay dividends to those who are willing to make a practice of his techniques.”- M.Dvorkin

Would you be open and interested to knowing more about the therapeutic “game-changing” method of Core Movement Integration, the union of 3 rivers: Feldenkrais, neuromyofascial and biomechanics? I am inviting you to participate in a small-group workshop (with preference to those who have had some orientation) where you will experience clear, precise and easy to follow hands-on and movement mapping; learn the basis of how this CMI method works and is performed. Learn more about the now-known direct relation of movement and hands-on treatment, and the positive effects on the nervous system.
Open these live links: three videoclips showing the little known but scientifically demonstrable path of movement transmission from the trochanter to the spine.

“It was a privilege to be part of [the Spine Workshop] in Castrocaro. The sessions were wonderful, instructive and helpful. I was charmed by the lovely group of people who are practitioners. And, of course, the region of Emilia Romagna was special.
Your approach makes a great deal of sense to me. I was amazed at my (relative) ease of movement, really from very early on in the course, and certainly by the close of the 3 days.”

Congratulations to Byron!
” I just got promoted to Yondan (4th Dan) in Aikido, for the New Year!!”
From Byron Eddy (post Advanced Seminar)
“…You know I have been practicing Aikido for over thirty years and it also is one of those elusive obvious phenomena’s. And that is why I keep coming [to CMI workshops]. It gets a little clearer each time and sometimes there are great leaps forward,sometimes there are plateaus that can seem to go on forever. The point is that I have the same experience when I go to CMI seminars such as this recent one. I came away feeling new connections and new confidence.
Of course, one can stay at home and practice and make gains but it is the group experience and the skill of a master teacher that illuminate the path. That is why I keep coming. I am so grateful that you are there for us.
All the best…and can’t wait to get back up there. “- Byron
