What is Foundation Training?

Foundation Training is a movement practice designed to restore the body’s natural order and put YOU at the centre of your health. It teaches your body how to properly support itself and move as nature intended. It was developed by chiropractor and movement expert, Dr Eric Goodman, to heal his own chronic back pain. Having refused spinal fusion surgery prescribed to him by several doctors, he managed to get himself out of pain within a year. Now, years later, Dr Goodman leads an active, pain free life and has developed an incredible series of exercises to help others do the same.

 

Thousands of people who were in pain with anything from sore knees and failing hips to bad backs and painful shoulders, have discovered remarkable healing through Foundation Training. The power of decompression and the restoration of correct movement make this programme a natural and effective alternative to heavy-handed medical intervention.

 

This programme is not a temporary remedy, but a systematic solution that offers long-term benefits. Practicing Foundation Training enables one to reach, achieve and experience incredible health and wellness.

Mike is excited to introduce Foundation Training to the Finisterre audience with an Introductory Workshop on Thursday 25th July at 6-7.30pm. For more information or to book your space please head to www.ftinstructors.co.uk/ (link in bio)If you’re in pain, or looking to improve the quality of your strength and mobility, Foundation Training teaches you a whole new way of looking after your body to ensure it stays healthy. The movement practice works to decompress the spine and rebalance the muscular system, teaching you principles that can be applied to any sport or activity and woven into all aspects of your daily life. Mike came to Foundation training after he was forced to stop surfing with debilitating sciatica and shoulder pain. Now at the ripe old age of 44 😉 his body feels stronger and more mobile than it did in his 30s. Having rebalanced his body and learnt the tools to maintain it, he is back to surfing, free diving, hiking and running as much as he likes - AND pain free!We’d love to see you there!#finisterre #foundationtraining #edinburgh #workshop #backpain #sciatica #fitness #wellbeing #surf #hike #running #nomorepain #improvefitness #buildstrength #buildmobility #posturalalignment #corestrength ...
