Phillip Beach: Contractile Fields Workshop

Phillip Beach

3 Days of Movement and Theory An Optional 4th Day

Phillip explores how his postural and movement models complement popular movement modalities.

A new whole-body movement model – Contractile Fields – that will change the way you think, move, and teach. It is remarkable that we have come so far in our biomedical understanding of the human body yet we have no coherent models that attempt to map whole-organism movement patterns. Phillip’s model of movement attempts to bridge that conceptual gap in our understanding.

Contractile Fields
The interaction of Contractile Fields coherently changes our shape. Conceptually we need to move away from groups of muscles based on body regions towards a whole organism perspective.

Decoding Meridians
Decoding Meridians
What are meridians? Why the number of 12 + 2 meridians? Why do meridians course over the body in such a specific manner? How did the ancient Chinese come to map many of the acupoints on the meridians? Phillip’s book Muscles and Meridians decodes this ancient venerable map via methodologies appropriate to the culture from which it emerged.

Muscles and Meridians

Our musculoskeletal system needs the exercise of erecting to stay in good moving health. The ability to relearn and reintroduce these exercises into everyday life provides some protection from degeneration and dis-ease.
