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.

It's taken all year but we've finally managed to host our Aberdeen workshop! We had a brilliant day yesterday with a fabulous new group of people.

We ran with reduced numbers to adhere to social distancing and adopted a distance teaching style throughout the workshop. Even with this, it was great to have our first in person event since the beginning of the pandemic.

Thank you to everyone who attended!

The wide spread reliance on orthotics in society these days falls into the same bracket that a lot of conventional medical treatments fall into - that we are trying to treat chronic problems with acute techniques.

At best, orthotics should be used as a temporary tool to relieve painful symptoms. However, effort should then be made to build the support that the muscular system is designed to provide the feet.

USE IT OR LOSE IT
Relying on orthotics (or supportive shoes) long term means the muscles in the feet don’t need to activate and work. If you break your arm or leg and have a cast on it for 6 weeks, when that cast comes off the muscles are stiff, weak and need rebuilt to function effectively.

This is what orthotics are doing to our feet, except we leave that ‘cast’ on for years not weeks!

Our muscular system is designed to support our entire skeleton. We shouldn’t be relying on artificial supports, we should be learning how to enable our muscular system to support our skeleton effectively.

“Dear Mora
I’ve realised even my feet are changing.
I have been working on my feet and my bunions for a couple of years, and I was disappointed because there was so little improvement.
Now after our Foundation Training I realise they are improving rapidly, toes are straighter, bunions smaller and I feel my feet are getting stronger each time.
Amazing how Foundation changes your whole body even when you have spent a lot of years on this earth😄.
Thank you
You are the best!
Ingela”

We highly recommend listening to this podcast:

podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/feel-better-live-more-with-dr-rangan-chatterjee/id1333552422?i=1000...

Dr Chatterjee interviews author and science journalist James Nestor following the release of his book ‘Breath’.

The book and the podcast discuss the hard science behind how breathing correctly dramatically improves your health. This is not some belief system, it’s proven, scientific fact detailing how modern society has caused us to lose the ability to breathe properly and how it is affecting our health catastrophically.
