About

I am glad you are here because this could be the beginning of your transformation to reach your full potential in any endeavor.

I know, I know you have tried a multitude of things that promise amazing benefits, but hear me out on this one and you will not regret it.

Each of us is born with the natural ability to reach our full potential in any endeavor. A few people do reach their full potential in a particular skill, but they almost always start very early in life. What happens to leave the rest of us behind?  Injuries, trauma, and how society and institutions approach learning are the culprits.

When we are born we learn all functionality non-consciously. How we go about recovering from lost functionality due to traumatic events and conditions such as injury, abuse, and systematic conditioning  is where the problem lies. Since we learn to function non-consciously, we actually don’t know how to re-learn or re-capture lost functionality. Current approaches to recovery are polar opposite to how the brain works. We need an approach that is congruent with how the brain works, and today we have it.

It’s called NeuroElements  and it consists of five foundational elements underlying all functionality.

The five elements are broken into the essential components of how the structure evolved to function. The elements are how we: breathe, yield, differentiate, rotate, and propel the structure in gravity according to Newton’s laws of motion and the physics of how to optimally move through space.  Critical to integrating the elements into all that you do is to reconnect with what you feel in any given function and appropriately respond to the messages your brain gives you, making you poised for change.

Science has come a long way in its understanding of how the brain works. About a decade ago MRI technology revolutionized the study of the brain. It could show exactly what is activated in the brain when we perform a function. It was observed that all information entering the brain to perform a function is triggered by the senses, and every sense is activated by the movements within a function. Science revised the computer brain to now say the brain is a complex neurological organism that rewires itself as it learns and refines skills.

Science knows how the brain works now but society and its institutions are struggling to change because the profit makers of today are heavily invested in the status quo. For example, pharmaceutical companies and the entire medical industry depends on treating symptoms, not resolving them, particularly in the realm of pain. Chronic pain is a $560 to $635 billion dollar industry. Why would the health care system support an approach that can effectively put it out of a big chunk of business?

 

How I founded the NeuroElements approach

The catalyst that led to what I do now occurred when I woke up one morning in pain. I had a demanding career in computer Information Technology (IT) as a systems architect consultant for fortune 100 financial companies. I could not afford to be distracted by pain. The doctor I saw had limited tools to address the pain, all of which were ineffective. The alternative approaches I tried were equally as ineffective at relieving the pain, which was 24/7.  I finally came across the Feldenkrais Method which helped to relieve and resolve the pain.

I completed a 4-year training in the Feldenkrais Method and started a part-time practice. I eventually left IT to pursue the movement practice full-time. The Feldenkrais approach addresses how we move. I tried teaching people how the skeleton is designed to move optimally from the perspective of releasing muscles, but it was limited because the consciousness simply cannot process the complexity of how to perform even a simple movement. I needed to figure out the elements that the brain uses to refine and improve functionality. Observing and working with animals and young children showed that gravity, physics, and the design of the skeletal structure play an essential role in how any being learns to function well. The combination of gravity, physics, and how any structure is organized to function resulted in identifying five essential elements that, along with how to feel, and how to respond to what you feel, led to the approach I label NeuroElements. I don’t teach people how to move any more because movement in and of itself is not relevant to the brain, only function or intention is relevant. I show you how to integrate the elements into any function so that you are empowered to excel in all that you do naturally.

Who Can Benefit From NeuroElements

I work with anyone who wants to overcome limitations to excel in all that they do.

I discovered the elements underlying how we function by observing and working with young children and, more importantly, animals. You see, animals don’t recover full functionality after injuries or trauma either. In trying to help them function as well as or better after injuries is how I learned the underlying fundamentals to any function. I applied what I learned with animals to children with injuries and neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, autism, SMA and so on. And I have spent 20+ years working with adults to help them overcome and eliminate chronic pain, recover from injury and trauma, and empower them to live a life aging gracefully, elegantly, and with greater functionality.

In the animal realm my specialty is helping horses, dogs, and cats regain functionality after trauma and injury.
