Healthy movement allows individuals to engage with life, for quality of life, and a lifetime of activity, performance and participation. My vision and passion are to enable individuals to improve and maintain the health of their movement.
ABOUT THE MOVEMENT WORKS
For over 25 years Sarah has been exploring and researching the health of movement and how the way people move and coordinate movement influences how they use their body to engage with life.
Movement provides individuals with possibilities, be it independence, interacting with family, gardening and social activities, work, interests, exercise or amateur and elite sport. Increasing and maintaining physical activity is a key factor for a healthy life.
Age 8 - 98 at The Movement Works
Identifying and changing movement choices offers both practitioners and individuals the power to transform the health of movement. Addressing the dynamic state of the health of movement to change how people engage with life, is for all, whether they are 8 or 98, from those with a sedentary lifestyle, the active and wellness minded to elite athletes.
Restoring the Health of Movement at The Movement Works
The individual is at the heart of The Movement Works practice. Our passion is to transform movement, using the mind-body connection to embrace and influence challenges and to re-engage with life.
The Movement Works is based on three fundamental components:
- Assess your movement quality through observation and tests
- Interpret the results to shape your individual movement coaching
- Empower you as an individual to restore movement quality and re-engage with life.
Restoring the way people move and coordinate movement (movement coordination strategies) has been shown to help:
- Manage pain, recurrent pain and symptoms
- Influence lifestyle, activities and participation
- Change movement efficiency
- Improve performance and mitigate risk of injury.
At the heart of Sarah’s clinical and academic journey to explore the health of movement are 4 key elements:
Championing the health of movement across countries, cultures and lifespans
Individuals, health and wellness professionals, politicians and change makers value movement more now than ever. Transitioning from prescriptive exercise to a more holistic approach to the health of movement is needed. Embracing individuals’ narratives, will enable them to steer their life course by giving them the best options to move. There has never been a more important time in global history for championing the health of movement across countries, cultures and lifespans.
