Your Brain Is Made for Change

Our brains are always changing in response to our every experience. This is called neuroplasticity. These changes can be positive—leading us to greater well-being and a more vibrant life. Or the changes can be negative (back, neck, and joint pain or limitation, and the deterioration after trauma or as people age).

Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®—developed by Anat Baniel—is a groundbreaking, systematic, and highly effective way to communicate with the brain and take advantage of its natural ability to make positive, immediate, and powerful changes.

NeuroMovement utilizes neuroplasticity exercises that can be used at any age to rewire your brain to overcome pain and reach higher levels of physical, emotional, and cognitive performance.

This Method taps into neuroplasticity through movement and the Nine Essentials which Anat defined. Supported by neuroscience research, these principles provide the conditions that the brain requires to bring life-changing results to children and adults.

Why Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor Recommends
Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®

“Anat applies the exact same principles when helping people overcome limitation that I used to recover my brain and body from stroke.”

“She understands that for any meaningful change to happen in the way we think, move, and use our body, the change has to happen in the brain.”

~Jill Bolte Taylor, PhD, World Renowned Author of My Stroke of Insight, Ted Talk Presenter, and International Public Speaker


Why Dr. Michael Merzenich Supports
Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®


“Scientists have defined the ‘rules’ governing brain plasticity. Anat Baniel, working in parallel along a completely different path, has defined almost exactly the same rules and interprets them in practical and understandable human terms as the Nine Essentials.

These powerful, practical strategies for improving your abilities and building a better, stronger brain, should also contribute richly to your own, more enlightened parenting, grandparenting, or clinical intervention.”

~Dr. Michael Merzenich, PhD, Professor Emeritus UCSF, “Father” of brain plasticity science, Winner of the 2016 Kavli Prize in Neuroscience, and Author of Soft-Wired

Praise From Our Parents & Clients

Children and adults who have experienced breakthrough results with NeuroMovement®

Laird and His Mom

a boy with severe cerebral palsy

“Laird is now reading, he’s adding numbers, he’s close to crawling and sitting, he’s feeding himself, and he’s talking a lot more. We have Anat Baniel Method to thank for all that he can do.”


a woman with chronic pain syndrome

“I’ve been in bed for three-and-a-half years, and I started windsurfing again this year, religiously…and it’s easier and I go faster every time I do less; so I beat the boys on the water.”


a 71-year old with walking issues

“In four relatively short lessons, I feel like an absolutely new person. I have fluidity in my knees, I have fluidity in my hips, my walking is a lot better…I don’t have foot pain anymore…it is quite amazing.”

We have over 700 practitioners around the world.
