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.

“Do what you can...with what you have...wherever you're at. But start now. Pain feels limiting. Diagnoses feel disheartening. Information feels overwhelming. Start anyway. Focus on what you have control over. A small shift in posture. Paying attention to a couple of breaths. Noticing how you move to reach for something.”Wise and encouraging words from the founders of @foundationtraining To change your health you need to make a start. Even if it’s baby steps. If you are unsure of where to begin, drop us a DM or email.
