Practice does indeed make perfect. However, only those who practice correctly can achieve their goals. The majority of people have neither the will nor the time to practice. This book closes that gap. Spiraldynamik exercises embody quality and motivation, because they are, without compromise, both natural and suitable for daily use.
Natural: Scientists researching evolutionary history discovered the spiral principle to be the essence of human movement. This holds true for the hardware, i.e. the body, as well as the software, i.e. the movement programs in the brain. The body is full of spirals, e.g. the left to right rotations of the spine during walking, the cruciate ligaments within the knee joint, and the bio-architecture of the arches of the feet. The software is innately adapted to the hardware. All-important movements, such as gripping, walking, supporting, and pushing, are inherent as primordial reflex movements in the new-born.
Suitable for daily use: Spiraldynamik exercises mirror those primordial movements that are most important in evolutionary history. These movements have been practiced by human beings over millions of years and have thus been imprinted upon us: walking, gripping, throwing, supporting, etc. This vast spectrum offers you the perfect possibility to practice primordial movements in everyday life without any additional expenditure of time. Pelvic floor impulse training when climbing stairs, helps against back problems; the short walk to the coffee machine can open the groin; when getting up, see that the knees are aligned; looking sideways can lead to a mobilization of the thoracic spine; when putting the dishes away, you train the above-the-head mobility of the shoulder joints; when driving with both hands on the steering wheel, you perfect the stability of your shoulders.
So, natural and suitable for daily use, is the formula for success of ‘Pain Free & Mobile’. Habit is the biggest enemy of naturalness, as it feigns assurance, even when posture and movement patterns are wrong. Therefore, make use of the provided monitoring criteria as a touchstone. If in doubt, see a therapist or educator, who has experience with Spiraldynamik® and so can support you.
