To maintain a balance, our body is composed of a complex system of involuntary muscle chains that are working to make the necessary trade-offs between weight and body movement, so it does not miss this harmony and balance. When these muscle chains do not function properly, then the body can be affected by a malfunction.
The body re-education is the method by which, through various postures and toning exercises, you reschedule the way the body works, schedules or habits.
To re-educate the body, you require respecting the following principles:
Principle of individuality: this principle tells us how special and unique each person is, there are no two identical human beings, even if twins are identical they havee differences in the time of birth or behavior. So there cannot be two identical forms of treating a problem.
Principle of causality: when a problem occurs, we most commonly attack the symptom and not the cause that generates it. This principle tells us that the solution to a conflict or problem either biological or conduct is to find the cause through the tracks that gives the symptom. By finding the cause and work on it, the symptoms simply disappear without our having to battle with them.
Principle of wholeness: refers to when considering any ailment or problem, you have to consider the individual in all aspects, not only consider the physical aspect but the mental, emotional and even spiritual. This principle considers that all these forces converge living, physical force and cannot operate in isolation from emotional, mental or spiritual, etc.
Contemplating all this might help to uncover the cause and solution of the problem.

In the first consultation, doctor evaluates the general conditions of the person and skeletal muscle dysfunction and its dynamics of movement. Sometimes this will be gradually addressed, especially when patients are fearful or shy. The sessions consist of a body massage which will uninstall habits that obstruct the free flow of movement, which cause the accumulation of stored tensions in certain parts of the body. Massage can have different rhythms, sometimes you have to work very slowly and gradually. It should be mentioned that any external force applied to a body surface will, therefore, a self-correcting internal reaction, which will affect our entire body intervention interconnected and multisystemic.
In short, this massage works through various stimuli on the skin surface (either elevation, strokes, and drag the connective tissue), which sends new information to the brain, causing changes in the cortex and the vestibular nuclei. The response to these stimuli requires some time for all systems can interact together and reaffirm, reorganize and restructure the role of the Central Nervous System, which corrects and awaken the body's self-healing power, by updating information.
