The Fajardo Method

VIDEO RESOURCES

Here you can find videos illustrating some concepts regarding biomechanics, the nervous system, and the Fajardo Method of Holistic Biomechanics.

Biotensegrity

Biotensegrity describes the structural principals and transfer of force in living systems. The video clip below shows a biotensegrity movement model. Note how the leg structure changes shape rather than lengthening or shortening the structural components in order to walk.

The Valve System

The valve system is responsible for respiration, circulation, and digestion. It is also essential for immune system response and the healthy and functioning of our organs.

Peristalsis

Peristalsis is a wave-like muscle contraction that controls digestion and other vital functions, and is the result of a well-functioning valve system. This video shows an actual filming of a peristaltic wave.
