The Fajardo Method
THE FAJARDO METHOD OF HOLISTIC BIOMECHANICS
The Fajardo Method of Holistic Biomechanics was created by Alicia Fajardo, owner of Transformations Studio in Portland, Oregon. This modality has two primary areas of focus:
1. Nervous system health & adaptability
2. Body structure and functional movement
Biomechanics are dictated by the nervous system state. The Fajardo Method of Holistic Biomechanicsuses conscious attention to increase the flow of sensory nerve information. This allows the unconscious brain, as it better understands its internal and external environment to:
a. Select a nervous system state appropriate to the external environment
b. Create structural and physiological changes
To understand how the Fajardo Method works, it's important to understand how the nervous system works and see what changes occur in the sympathetic nervous system that affect body function and movement. Check out the Nervous System page for more information.
