The Fajardo Method of Holistic Biomechanics
The Fajardo Method of Holistic Biomechanics teaches movement education and motor re-patterning in conjunction with nervous system awareness.
This Fajardo Method is appropriate for a wide variety of issues. Some clients of the modality are addressing stress and anxiety. Some wish to avoid surgery, while others are experiencing discomfort in their body or lack of energy. The Fajardo Method is also effective for highly accomplished athletes and individuals who want to improve their movement biomechanics for skill efficiency or overall health and wellness.
The Nervous System
Nervous System awareness is the core of the modality. In our modern world we tend toward over-activation of the fight-or-flight, or sympathetic, nervous system, which causes a number of structural and physiological changes that affect the way we move and the way the body operates, leading to illness and lack of function. This website discusses the relationship of the nervous system to body function in detail.
Through working with the nervous system, you might address some of the health and movement topics below:
If you are injured, experiencing discomfort, considering surgical intervention, or if your body is simply not functioning well, there is a good chance that you have some non-optimal biomechanics and movement patterns contributing to the issue.
Whether you compete in a sport or are going about daily functional movement, appropriate biomechanics are important for safety and motor efficiency. This work is appropriate for athletes or anyone wanting to address motor function.
BODY SYSTEM FUNCTIONALITY
Medical research attributes 90 percent of illness and disease to a stress related cause. The Fajardo Method, through attention to nervous system state (sympathetic or parasympathetic), can affect more than just your movement.
A LEARNING PROCESS
The Fajardo Method is an educational process as well as movement training. Clients learn about the anatomy and physiology of the body and how the nervous system functions and creates movement. They also learn how to identify whether or not they are moving in biomechanically-optimally ways and how to create new motor patterns.
Over time clients build self-sufficiency in Fajardo Method process and techniques and increase their ability to assess and care for their own health.
