“DR. ONE AND ONLY! MOVEMENT SPECIALIST THAT I TRUST WITH MY BODY.”

PRIMITIVE PATTERNS. PROGRESSIVE MOVEMENT.


We are MOVEMENT SPECIALISTS
We utilize the power of primitive patterns as a catalyst for loco-motion.

 

MOTUS’ proven approach is centered around the use of neuromuscular training to regain function and return our clients to doing the things they love. We incorporate primitive movement patterns that are innate in the human developmental process and use them to correct movement faults. Our team analyzes movement as it is intended to be and the focus is on targeting the source of the problem, not just curing the site.

WINNING COMBINATION.



MOTUS combines our knowledge of SPORT, SCIENCE and MOVEMENT
each into one specific task that enables our clients to succeed.

We look at the biomechanics of movement dynamically, rather than in isolation, and that is the very key to movement. It starts with the most primitive form of diaphragmatic breathing. From there, the body can sustain and develop the most optimal strain to achieve the highest efficiency rate. MOTUS’ understanding of how our body is made up and how each chain is integrated into every movement is crucial to our clients success.

MOTUS
TRUSTED BY PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES


Keep them in the game, not in rehab.

Our clients perform at the highest levels and come from a wide range of disciplines. MOTUS has become trusted amongst students, fitness lovers, weekend warriors and professional athletes because of the sense of ownership we take over each and every one of our clients. They become a part of MOTUS team and we work with them not only to get them back in the game as quickly as possible, but to ensure that the pain does not return down the line. 

We, at MOTUS, believe; the less we see our clients, the better we’ve done our job.
