MOTUS’ proven approach is centered around the use of neuromuscular training to regain function and return our clients to doing the things they love. We incorporate primitive movement patterns that are innate in the human developmental process and use them to correct movement faults. Our team analyzes movement as it is intended to be and the focus is on targeting the source of the problem, not just curing the site.
We look at the biomechanics of movement dynamically, rather than in isolation, and that is the very key to movement. It starts with the most primitive form of diaphragmatic breathing. From there, the body can sustain and develop the most optimal strain to achieve the highest efficiency rate. MOTUS’ understanding of how our body is made up and how each chain is integrated into every movement is crucial to our clients success.
MOTUS has become trusted amongst students, fitness lovers, weekend warriors and professional athletes.
