Ever been hurt or injured? Me too.
For purely personal reasons as well as with the aim of helping others I have spent some time researching healing movements.
The research has included all kinds of ingredients, concepts and qualities. A partial list includes: tempo, rhythm, volume, range of motion, diversity of angles, frequency, intensity, attention, intention, expectation, imagery, muscle balance, sense of safety, internal dialogue, breath quality, risk, emotional state, sns-psns balance, fundamental movement patterns, brain maps, group effects, context, ritual, alignment, tensegrity, trance and a few more that aren’t jumping out from the top of my head.
There is one quality though which sometimes leaves the others in the dust. It also laughs at my attempts to codify and analyse. It is not predictable, or controllable and some days it can backfire terribly.
What is this quality?
It is movement for fun, for play, just for it’s own sake.
