Kinergy Movement Therapy (KMT)

KMT programs are focussed on the promotion of lower-body strength and endurance; enhancing balance, flexibility & agility; stimulating circulation (systemic, peripheral, lymphatic, synovial & cerebrospinal); correcting postural deficits & pathologic or dysfunctional movement patterns; developing coordination; increasing personal energy levels; and, heightening kinaesthetic awareness / acuity.

KMT routines

The routines are generally performed at low to moderate intensity, synchronously with breathing exercises. KMT programs are supplemented with resistance training, aerobic conditioning exercises, warm-up / cool-down routines, and prescribed stretches.

KMT – 21c rehab strategies

KMT exercises are suitable for home as well as workplace practice, and don’t require training aids or specialised equipment. In addition, interactive routines are utilised in one-on-one as well as group sessions. These partnership exercises have their origin in martial art training drills, but have been modified to incorporate passive- & active-assist / resist techniques, which are based (in part) on proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) principles.

KMT – Synergy of E & W

Breathing routines are integral to KMT sessions, and are essentially based on diaphragmatic breathing techniques. However, this component extends beyond traditional physiotherapeutic “deep breathing” exercises, and incorporates advanced mind-body-breath training.

Some of the constituent elements of the KMT modality may seem to be somewhat esoteric or foreign to rehabilitation clients & practitioners), however considerable work has been done to ensure that the principles & practices are readily understood and easily assimilable.

FAQ

THE MASTER KEY TO SUCCESS – WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

  • Technique. The exercises are simple (but stimulating), safe, stress-free. But to master the exercises it’s essential that they are performed exactly as per the instructions. The point is – practice doesn’t make perfect; only perfect practice does. So, please pay close attention.
  • Equipment. You need: a computer to track your progress and play back the videos; an internet link; and access to Zoom for feedback sessions; and a few square meters of floor space to strut your stuff. Aside from that you don’t need any special equipment (you were born with it).
