How do you want to move when you’re 90? This is a question I ask myself every day.
Do you want to be capable of getting up and down from the floor with ease and without Pain? Can you do this now? If not, using movement as therapy may be what you need.
I want to run, jump, climb, crawl, balance, catch, throw, and most importantly play up till my last breath. I want to be able to move with ease. I want to be a fully functioning human mover well into advanced age.
Movement as Therapy
The reality is that I cannot do some of these things on any given day today.
If you cannot perform these movement skills today, they won’t magically appear in 20, 30, or 40 years. Which means, if you want to move well into older age, you must learn and practice them now. You must use movement each and every day as therapy to restore the skills you have lost from not moving enough.
This is what I call Movement Therapy.
