Movement with Attention, Lesson 1 from the book:
Move Into Life, The Nine Essentials for Lifelong Vitality
by Anat Baniel
Movement is the language of the brain, and your brain is the great organizer of that movement, managing trillions of connections associated with every single action, large or small. The moment we bring attention to our movement, any movement, research shows that the brain resumes growing new connections and creating new pathways and possibilities for us. You can experience this yourself. Through movement with attention, we gain the ability to assist our brains in seeking the most successful way to manage all movement in our lives.

Here is the quote from Dr. Doidge:
“This accessible, insightful, practical book for parents of children with special needs will profoundly deepen their ability to help their children improve. Following in the footsteps of the revolutionary scientist-clinician Moshe Feldenkrais, the greatest thinker about how to improve movement in the 20th Century, Baniel shows why our mainstream approach to these children is often wrong, and at times damaging, because it trains children to “ape” developmental milestones they are not developmentally ready to meet.
The approach here, far wiser, far more subtle, truly holistic, far more ingenious, far more in accord with how brain development occurs, shows ways to access the child’s own brain plasticity and yields far greater results, so that the children can spontaneously grow from within.
I know because I have observed Baniel’s little patients on multiple visits, and time after time, I have seen children whose parents were told their brain-damaged children would never walk, or talk, or be able to think well or regulate themselves, begin to do just that with this gentle technique.
I have seen the peace on the faces of these children as their minds and plastic brains suddenly begin to integrate what they have learned for the first time, the explosion of joy at their first steps and watched them grow and become more independent. Baniel is a master clinician for children with special needs, especially creative with brain-damaged children. The stories presented here are not exaggerations; they are triumphs from which most parents of children with special needs will surely benefit.”
