Are you fed up of your pain status quo?

If you are truly motivated to do the work that will help you reduce pain and improve energy, mobility, and other symptoms of fibromyalgia, chronic illness, or chronic pain, I want to welcome you to my program this September.

Most likely your needs have not been met by the conventional health care system - you'd be surprised how many others have experienced the same.

You see, we know that your body-mind system is a self-healing machine. Your healing capacity is rooted in the wholeness of your integrated being.  But conventional medicine doesn't recognize that, and the usual symptomatic treatments don't support healing.

To fill the gap left by conventional medicine, I created Movement Toward Health for You.  It's systematic training to teach you skills to reclaim your inner healing intelligence and well-being.  So you can heal for real. 

Movement Toward Health is a training program to awaken your inner healer, and build your knowledge and skills so you can reverse the vicious cycles that worsen your pain, immobility, fatigue, and other symptoms.

So you can take your life back and live again.

 
"During 35 years' studying and practicing integrative medicine, I've identified key skills and processes that empower my patients so they can make the most of their conventional or functional medical care. This course offers the training process that I want for each of my patients."
--Andrew David Shiller, MD

Program opens again in September 2022.

MINDSET - develop healing-warrior skills and gain support to transform the challenges - you know that healing is in your hands - this level of determination is what will enable me to truly help you.

CONSCIOUSNESS - this goes beyond mindfulness -Your body, emotions, mind and soul are one unit. Trauma, pain, and suffering cause fragmentation. Regain the integration as your build the awareness, will, and skill to  power your healing and mobility.

BREATHWORK - your breathing integrates with every bit of your biology. Learn to mobilize the power of your breathing to modulate stress, enhance energy, transform emotional pain, and empower physical movement - once you start to respect it you'll notice the impact.

MOVEMENT - Physical therapy and gym workouts often fail because they don't acknowledge the protective responses that worsen pain and limit motion. Enter internal exercise, or  mindful movement - dissolve unhealthy protective responses, mobilize your physical and energy body with movement patterns inspired by qi-gong, yoga, tai-chi and osteopathy.  This works, no matter your pain level or your flexibility.

Want To Feel Better And Move Better?

This is not a "quick fix or miracle cure".  Healing takes work. Movement Toward Health is for you if you want to develop your well-being, vitality, and functional ability.  These are techniques proven to reduce the toxic biology of stress and pain, cut through negative emotion, and improve your freedom-of-movement, balance and strength. You can enhance the healing capacity of your body-mind system.

What is Mindful Movement?

This is the heart of the program. It's about learning a totally new and different way of moving. Forget "no pain, no gain". This is about finding ease and joy in movement. Regardless of your level of function, you can learn to start mobilizing your tissues, muscles, joints, and nerves. We learn to pay close attention to the body as it moves, and bring a relaxed, loving, happy intention to movement. We syncronize breathing and movement in a relaxed way to turns off protective reflexes and tissue restriction. We start to feel energy moving through the body and it enables freedom of motion. Increase flexibility, mobility, and energy. Build endurance according to your level of ability.

The Movement Toward Health Program provides the crucial skills that most physical therapy and gym exercise neglect. We focus on mindful movement together with training in breathwork, energy awareness, and consciousness.

As an Early Access Member, you will have a unique opportunity to shape the development of the program. So the program evolves to serve your needs, and the needs of future participants.

I’m so excited to support you!

Choose from three levels of membership to suit your interests and your budget. You can switch among levels at any time.  Read below for details.

The Movement Toward Health Curriculum provides organised, progressive training in a carefully-chosen suite of self-healing exercises that have been proven to reduce pain, normalize immune responses, balance the autonomic nervous system (aka reduce stress), improve emotional self-regulation, and enhance mobility and balance, for people at all levels of physical functioning.

You will be guided to develop a healing mindset, and develop skills in  mindfulness, breathwork, and mindful movement. Movement training is inspired by the same biological principles as rehabilitation science, Osteopathy, Tai Chi, Yoga, Chi Kung, etc. Didactic sessions help you understand the processes that lead to pain and disease, as well as the healing processes that lead to recovery.  The curriculum is based on Dr. Shiller's nearly 3 decades of experience caring for thousands of people with chronic pain and chronic illness.
