Story of Aaron: A Child with Arthrogryposis

NeuroMovement® Testimonial

“At birth Aaron came out in a curled position, his legs bent up to his chest and arms completely bent at the elbows, unable to straighten them, lie on his back, straighten his legs, or arms, or move his hands.

Before we started with Anat Baniel Method [NeuroMovement], for the first 5 months of Aaron’s life, he had physical therapy three times a week, which consisted of a lot of stretching. This only seemed to hurt Aaron. He would scream and cry and we would have to take breaks to calm him down.

I was then suppose to stretch him three times a day, which was a very painful experience for both of us. There was hardly any improvement with the stretching. I was completely distraught and depressed and felt that my son was never going to walk or do anything that a ‘normal’ child would do.

Discovering ABM [NeuroMovement] has changed my life, and most importantly has changed Aaron’s life….Very quickly Aaron’s body completely changed from a stiff curled position to a looser one able to move. In a few sessions, he can lie flat on his back, he can move his hips, his legs are straighter, his arms move so much more, he turns his head all the time, and he is so much happier and so am I.

All of his doctors are in shock with his progress and can’t believe how much he has changed in so little time. It is truly amazing. It is a miracle, in my eyes.

The best part is that he continues to improve every time we have a lesson with Marcy. I want to get the word out about this amazing Method, so that all children, like Aaron, can get the extraordinary results.

I do believe now that one day Aaron will walk and it will all be because of Marcy and Anat Baniel Method [NeuroMovement].”
