In order to prevent injury and dysfunction, the body often requires unwinding, reeducating and strengthening. To improve function, Kim guides people to be aware of their bodies as they move and supports them so that new movement patterns can be adopted and integrated into everyday life with grace and flexibility. She starts with assessing any pre-existing conditions and then assesses postural alignment, strength, flexibility, balance and gait patterning.
A typical progression for a client would be to start with an individual assessment session, possible bodywork and beginning movement analysis. A client may continue individual sessions or eventually move on to an appropriate small group class with a periodic individual check in.
Kim's small group movement sessions start with warming up the joints and spinal articulation. She guides people into their back body and midline, which are commonly overlooked. Kim will also create specialized treatment for chronic health challenges such as Multiple Scherosis, Parkinson's disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, polymyalgia rheumatic, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, sports injuries, scoliosis or joint replacement.
Kim's approach to movement has been influenced by the study of anatomy and kinesiology, Pilates, Yoga, Personal Training, Feldenkries, QiGong, Tai Chi, and Gyrotonic.®
