ADL | Movement Education

ADL is an abbreviation for Activities of Daily Life.

Often, the seemingly most mundane or habitual activities are the important places in everyday life where a little movement education and/or ergonomic ad­just­ment can help minimize or eliminate ongoing problems. Empowering clients to understand how they are doing what they are doing and teaching them to listen to their bodies are crucial steps in helping people to improve their own health. By discerning underlying structural and postural preferences, one can functionally modify their stretching, strengthening, or training programs to better achieve anatomical balance.

“Movement isn’t what we do, it’s who we are.”

– Emilie Conrad

Bruce offers tailor-made exercises for alignment, rehabilitation, and cross-training.

Integrated Manual Ther­apies (IMT) also helps diminish stress by de­con­structing re­pe­ti­tive mo­tion activities like sit­ting, sleeping, the work environment, and per­son­al er­go­no­mics. Ad­dres­sing these dif­fer­ent functional com­po­nents is quite often the cutting edge of IMT, as modifying or changing old patterns can be challenging on many levels. Dedicated to supporting health beyond office appointments, IMT further empowers proactive clients.
