Effortless Self Carriage: JEMS Keys to Ease and Balance over the ground

Bromsgrove Golf Centre, B60 1LD with Joanne Elphinston

This course proved so popular in April when we ran it, Joanne has been persuaded to take time out of her busy schedule to run the workshop again for those who missed it the first time around!

Do you and your patients carry yourselves in ease and balance? Is your own gait and posture as efficient and enjoyable as it could be? Or are your patients so busy thinking about their gait that they don’t know how to feel it?

The words "posture" and "gait" have very mechanical associations, yet both are complex and elegant dances between the forces acting upon us, and the forces which move through us.

Both involve our relationship with gravity and the ground.

This practical workshop is an introduction to the JEMS approach to integrated movement as it applies to our relationship to gravity, the ground and the management and flow of forces through the body.

Come and play with your own movement awareness, explore your gait and posture, and learn some easy and effective techniques to share with your patients.

  • Consider the what, why and when of mobilisation through clinical examples.
  • Appreciate the need for both critical evaluation and broader consideration when considering the evidence base.
