CFR™ IS BASED ON THESE TRUTHS:
Our personal histories are accumulated learning about how to move in order to live – and learning about what not to move in order to be loved or at least survive. What is or is not permitted to move in our bodies structures and restricts our experience of life. Limitations are a result not only of physical injury, but are also the direct reflection of our learned rules, strategies and beliefs. Your life cannot be any easier than your movements. Reduce the unnecessary effort in your movements and you reduce the effort in your life.
RULES, STRATEGIES, AND BELIEFS
Adapting to earth and the people around us inevitably involves experiences of rebuke and fear, permission and encouragement, which all become wired into the same pathway of movement. By adulthood, distortions and limitations from accidents, injuries, and illnesses – plus the movement compensations left in the body even after the symptoms are gone, all add to the conflicting instructions that vie for dominance in the same movement command. For example, as well as physical pain and limitation in that range of movement, the single intention to reach out a hand, or turn a cheek, or move a hip, can light up a pathway that is home to many conflicting instructions.”No! It is not OK!”, ” But I want to! I should. I shouldn’t! I have to! I can’t!”
LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Physical injury and limitation always involve other levels of consciousness. For true healing to occur, the emotional, mental, energetic, and spiritual aspects must be addressed as well as the more obvious physical aspect. Failure to deal with all four levels of consciousness can lead the remaining out-of-awareness compensations to cause hidden limitations and make us more vulnerable to future injuries.
LEARNING AND HEALING
Learning is the single most crucial pathway to healing. This is because learning involves bringing back into awareness something that was previously out of our awareness. This may be a new discovery or something which we were until recently unwilling to look at. Functional movement improves which in turn continues the healing.
HOW CFR™ WORKS
CFR™ uses movement initially to increase physical kinesthetic perception. Through table and floor work and processing the resulting discoveries, this work addresses not just physical limitations but also the emotional, mental, energetic and spiritual aspects that must be included for true healing. When muscular contractions, energetic blocks, and compensating patterns release, new choices in movement, belief and behavior become possible.
The outcome? This provides:
- New choices in conflicting demands,
- Clarity of Purpose – A totally meant ‘yes’ – A fully premitted ‘no’
- Emotional Healing
- Movement – Congruent, powerful, and emotional
Functional Movement Heals
Cortical Field Reeducation™
works through the motor-cortex to eliminate physical dysfunction and the emotional issues tied to it, freeing as well the habitual, self-limiting, protective behavior patterns associated with trauma. By releasing deep, long-standing muscular contraction – NOT LOCALLY – BUT AT A PLACE IN THE BRAIN WHERE IT IS ENCODED, we dramatically increase our ability to sense and feel. This work is about upgrading the clarity of the sensory information fed into our organic computer, which is our agent of change.
