CLAIRE SANDHAM

Anat Baniel Method NeuroMovement Practitioner

Through ABM NeuroMovement, I use a gentle, whole-body approach to help children and adults move beyond pain and limitation to new possibilities in movement, cognition, and emotional well-being.

WHAT IS ABM NEUROMOVEMENT?

NeuroMovement® (also called the Anat Baniel Method or ABM) is a therapeutic approach that helps people of all ages to move better, learn and think better, overcome limitations and improve performance.

 

It's a totally different approach to improving health and  functioning. NeuroMovement® uses gentle, pain-free, innovative movement exercises to create new connections in the brain so you or your child can do things that previously seemed challenging, or even impossible.

NeuroMovement® is especially helpful for people who suffer from chronic pain, stroke and brain injury survivors, children with special needs such as cerebral palsy and autism, and people experiencing age-related balance and movement challenges.

PRIVATE SESSIONS

By connecting through non-invasive touch, we will explore new ways of moving to reduce pain and improve functioning. Private sessions are tailored to your specific needs, and are beneficial for anyone wanting to overcome pain and injury, athletes wishing to improve their proprioceptive ability as well as children with special needs. .

GROUP CLASSES

Experience a new kind of group class to improve your balance, flexibility and freedom of movement. I will verbally guide you through a series of gentle, slow and innovative movements that teach you how to move again -  you'll be amazed at how good you'll feel after!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

CAROL, RETIRED

"In January 2022 I started to suffer from severe neck spasms.  I was seen by a multitude of specialists and had a full battery of medical testing, with no resolution.  By October the neck spasms were so severe that I wasn't comfortable leaving the house; my life became very small and sad.  I was on a high dosage of medication to control the spasms. In January 2023 I met Claire and my life began again.  Fast forward to today, I am off all the meds, I am cycling again and enjoying life.  The ways that Claire's treatments have changed my body are so delightful.  I have rediscovered movement!  Claire is very passionate about neuro movement and her focus and insight to help the body heal is so evident!   I will continue working with Claire, aging is now exciting!"

ABOUT ME

I discovered NeuroMovement® and the Anat Baniel Method through a friend who had used it to transform the lives of her adult and child clients with cerebral palsy. As a life-long amateur athlete, I was curious about the impact NeuroMovement® might have on my athletic performance, and from the first class I was hooked!

 

I thought my performance could only be improved through hard training and pushing my body to its limits, but NeuroMovement® offered me an alternative approach that made me mindful of my body and how I moved in space. I ran and cycled faster and easier, and the pain I habitually experienced from overtraining disappeared.

 

It didn’t take long for me to make the exciting but scary decision to leave my 20-year IT career behind and, after completing the 1.5-year training course in the US, become a certified practitioner of the Anat Baniel Method of NeuroMovement®.

 

After that first step, I haven’t looked back and I’m thrilled to have a fulfilling career helping people create ease, ability and vigour in every aspect of their lives. I am so excited to share this approach with you, and truly believe that NeuroMovement® will change your life.
