Human Movement Potential: Its Ideokinetic Facilitation
by Dr. Lulu E. Sweigard
In Human Movement Potential, Dr. Lulu Sweigard explores the capacity of the human nervous system to uncover efficient and healthy neuromuscular interactions to achieve optimal movement potential. At the heart of Sweigard’s educational approach is ideokinesis or the use of imaging to improve mechanical balance and neuromuscular coordination. The book includes an introduction to anatomy and kinesiology for dancers, reports on the author’s scientific research, and an in-depth discussion of how specific images can be used to make significant improvements in body alignment. The book is an essential resource for dancers, body workers and anyone interested in optimizing physical performance.
