Understanding Body Movement

We help you gain new perspectives on how bodies move and the purpose and enjoyment behind regular physical activity. Our Alsana team is committed to educating you on body movement and positivity so you can not only maintain optimal health, but can appreciate and connect with your body on a deeper level. Once an understanding of healthy movement is achieved, you can introduce new activities into your routine as you work towards a successful recovery.

Working with the Body

Utilizing evidence-based practices, we integrate physical movement into treating the whole body. Through progressive exercises and exposure to new types of movement, you will learn to work with your body to develop healthy practices that aid in healing the whole mind, heart, and soul. Listening to our bodies is the first step as you work towards finding a balance between activity and relaxation.
