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.

⭐️ Are you hypermobile? ⭐️ Mora’s regular client, Nibby, who has hypermobility, has recently started working with a ‘BodyBraid’ @bodybraid Nibby wore it in her Foundation Training session this morning and she was able to feel stronger muscle connections.People with hypermobility find it hard to hold tension in the muscles meaning they tend to hang dangerously on the joints rather than supporting them.The braid helps to build muscular control by providing some elastic resistance to guide the movement within a safe range.A really interesting new tool, particularly for those with hypermobility, and one that looks like it will complement the principles of Foundation Training beautifully!@foundationtraining #hypermobility #ehlersdanlossyndrome #hypermobilitysyndrome #foundationtraining #bodybraid #movementcontrol #musclechains #anatomytrains #spiralline #deepfrontline #saferangeofmotion #jointhealth #muscleelasticity #elasticity #proprioception #movementtherapy #movementeducation #stopstretching #rangeofmotion #eccentriccontrol #painrelief #relievepain #mobility #structuralstrength #corestrength #wholebodybalance ...

🥳 CONGRATULATIONS JANE 🥳We are so delighted for Jane who passed her final exam and is now a fully certified Foundation Training Instructor!Jane started as a client of Mora’s 6 years ago and worked hard to overcome severe pain caused by a herniated disc in her lower back.Having felt the life changing benefits of Foundation Training, Jane’s curiosity grew and grew - she wanted to know why these exercises worked so well.Jane attended a @foundationtraining certification a few years ago and has since worked hard to develop her teaching skills and build her understanding of anatomy and movement.Super proud of you pal , can’t wait to see where this takes you next 👏 @forbesy7777 #foundationtraining #foundationtraininginstructor #certified #qualified #hardwork #backpainrecovery #discherniation #discherniationrecovery #fixbackpain #backpainexercises #scienceofmovement #biomechanics #anatomy #anatomytrains #understandhumanmovement #understandanatomy #appliedanatomy #improveflexibility #backstrength #decompression #spinaldecompression ...
