Through the author’s detailed and caring guidance, you’ll discover how to achieve vitality and a sense of new aliveness that you may have not experienced since your childhood. Anat reveals not only how to overcome present aches, pains, and limitations but how to attain greater flexibility, energy, strength, mental clarity, and creativity—no matter what your age or present physical condition! In the words of bestselling author Larry Dossey, M.D., “This book puts living back into life. It is the distilled wisdom of a great guide.”
Scientific Foundation of This Work
In recent years brain research has challenged conventional wisdom that said our brains cease to develop and grow beyond our early twenties. Instead, cutting edge science has proved that our brains are capable of continuing to develop, grow, and make new connections throughout our lives. This capacity for regeneration is known as “neuroplasticity.” Why is this new discovery so important in Anat Baniel’s work? It is because your level of vitality is directly connected to your brain. When your brain thrives, growing and making new connections, you become capable of infinitely new ways of moving, thinking, and feeling. We move with greater comfort and ease. We think more clearly, broadly, and creatively. We carry out new solutions, small or large, more smoothly and effectively. And just as in childhood, when our lives spill over with new discoveries, we become infused with a sense of aliveness.
The Anat Baniel Method provides us with the tools for taking full advantage of neuroplasticity— our brain’s ability for changing itself to heal body and mind. Here are exercises drawn from the author’s more than 30 years of remarkable outcomes with adults as well as children. Through the self-help instructions for the Anat Baniel Method and NeuroMovement, presented in this book, you’ll reap the benefits of neuroplasticity and integrate them into everything you do.

“(Anat) understands that for any meaningful change to happen in the way we think, move, and use our body, the change has to happen in the brain.”
~Jill Bolte Taylor, bestselling author of My Stroke of Insight
“Anat Baniel shows why our mainstream approach is often wrong and at times damaging. The approach here, far wiser, far more subtle, truly holistic, far more ingenious, far more in accord with how our brain development occurs, shows ways to access brain plasticity that yields far greater results.”
