There is more, much more information still untapped within our neuro-sensory-motor programming!

There is more, much more ability still untapped within our neuro-sensory-motor programming!

ALL MOVEMENTS ARE INSTINCTUAL AND CONTROLLED BY WELL DEFINED AND STRUCTURED NEUROLOGICAL PROGRAMMING.

True Primal Training - Neuro FunC

Neuro FunC - Dominate Your Instincts

The small postural errors we all posses are in reality aspects of our Instinctual Movement Systems that did not develop correctly! 95% of our Instinctual Movement System are NOT HUMAN and so are related to past evolutionary or PRIMITIVE movements that did not develop correctly while the embryo was developing. By awaking, strengthening and DOMINATING these primitive neuro-postural programs we free our true human potential!!!

A new Era for Rehabilitation is now possible through our Instinctual Movement Neuro-Programming

By using our brains own Neuro-programming it is possible to not only reduce pain and almost immediately eliminate tendon/ligament inflammation but also reduce recovery time and put the public and athletes back on their feet BETTER than before!

Neuro FunC applied in the schools for learning and concentration.

We call it Neurological Training for Optimal Wellness or NOW Kids! Modern Neuro-Science is learning day by day that the instinctual movement programming or neuro-sensory-motor programming creates the neuro-infrastructure for all higher cerebral functions.

Performance nervous system

Your Top Performance is locked within your instinctual movement neuro-programming!

We can train away most of our personal postural quirks with time and repetition. But when we are under pressure too many times our 'dark side' takes over. This is because we have been working with the conscious ability to move and not the instinctual ability. The instinctual ability to move and react to stimulus is an unconscious ability and needs to be dealt with in a special way.

The GHIMPR System

The-long-road1

The “Gillis Hierarchy of Instinctual Motor Programming and Reprogramming” 

or simply, The GHIMPR System

The Neuro FunC Training Program is based upon the evolutionary neurological programming that links our Sensory Systems with our Instinctual Motor Reactions. This is less complicated than it sounds. It is simply the neuro-programming than links the information coming in from (principally); the vestibular system (inner ear balance), Proprioceptive System (Golgi, Spindle, Skin pressure/temperature Nerves, et al.), Visual System, Hearing System that then influence how the brain will keep the body up right and in balance. Than of course there is the influence of our ‘desire’ to perform a certain task where all of these sensory systems really have to start cooperating to perform properly. The GHIMPR System offers a categorized multi-layer system of the instinctual movement neuro-programming that creates the base for which ALL higher more refined movements are performed. The main instinctual movements use the myofascial meridians (as described by Tom Myers).

The GHIMPR SYSTEM

This work might be considered the third evolutionary step of the theory and mechanisms behind the instinctual movement patterns and their role in neuro-development;

  1. The “discovery” and first childhood reflexes of the neuro-programming, Bernstein, Gallant, Perez et al.
  2. Godard-Blythe/Doman/Masgutova et al. (researching each individual reflex and creating repeatable treatments)
  3. Gillis, researching and implementing;
    1. high input sensory treatments which radically decrease the timetable for integration (in cooperation with Witting, Tom-Steffan),
    2. the introduction of the “triune brain + one”. the Enteric Nervous System Integration to reduce negative signals influence over mid-brain injuries.
    3. the introduction of the evolutionary postural and dynamic movement archetypes for each of the major evolutionary stages. (amphibian, reptilian, mammalian, primate and human).
    4. The concept of dividing the movement systems in two groups
      1. Navigation (ie, eyes, hands, feet, mouth)
      2. Locomotion (ie Quadratus Fem., Gluteus Max. Erector Spin) with the Myofascial Muscle Trains as described by Thomas Myers as the motor systems.
  • The fundamental neurological processes for the postural and dynamic reflexes of the connective tissues, myofascia, tendons, ligaments.

N.B. Each movement and posture associated with the evolutionary hierarchy have had to pass the test criteria states bellow before being accepted as a TRULY EVOLUTIONARILY INHERITED POSTURE AND/OR MOVEMENT NEURO-PROGRAM;

  1. observed as neuro-dysfunctional postures in humans (cerebral palsy, drop foot, down syndrome, etc.)
  2. observed movements when ‘stimulating’ the sensory systems
  3. observed movements when under stress, physical and even emotional/psychological
  4. observed within an evolutionary group as one or more of MAIN Movement Strategies and Postures
  5. the appropriate neuro-sensory-motor therapy able to improve and drastically change even the neurology of client
  6. the appropriate neuro-sensory-motor therapy able to HEAL in very short time frame (hours) injuries in healthy persons that have not had any or very little benefit from classic therapies (manual, mechanical, chemical) in months and years
  7. to permanently change the instinctual ‘natural’ posture and dynamic movement patterns
  8. to influence in a strong and positive manner the behavior of the person
  9. to influence in a strong and positive manner the cognitive ability of the person
  10. to influence in a strong and positive manner the social skills of the person
  11. to be able to ‘predict’ after testing ones instinctual postural and dynamic movement neurology, all of the above

The four main archetypal movement groups:

Amphibian

Reptilian

Mammilian

Homo Sapiens 

amphibian level
reptilian level
mammilian level
homo sapiens level

N.B. (Each group builds its movement patterns upon the preceding group’s movement programming.) 

Amphibiansamphibian level

The Amphibian’s possess a simple main body with head/tail as the main movement structure with “fins” for some movement but mostly directional precision. Their head swings right to left initiating the “swimming” motion throughout their ENTIRE bodies.
The amphibians possess the “simplest” movement strategy and the first stage of vertebrate movement hierarchy with;

  1. Head motion limited to lateral plane
  2. Body limited to a prone position
  3. “no” to little vertical movement in spine
  4. Main instinctual movement programming consisting in simple lateral motions, homo-lateral extremity-center neuro-muscular organization
  5. Control over motion with “fin steering”. (ie. Babinski reflex, et al.)
  6. Eye movement disassociated
  7. Main navigation from fins, eyes and locomotion from body center-to-extremities
  8. Amphibian Reflex, Gallant Reflex, Tendon Guard Reflex, Babinski, Toe/Hand Grip Reflexes, Fear Paralysis Reflex, etc, etc
  9. Myofascial Meridians; Lateral and Back Line

Reptiliansreptilian level

The Reptilian’s have, as the Amphibian’s do, a great reliance of the horizontal movement patterns. Important here is the emergence of the bilateral coordination of the arms and legs and in particular the Hand Supporting Reflex. Noticing that the elbows do not “rise” above the level of the shoulders. Also important is the ‘Rolling’ ability (used to kill their prey).
The Reptilians share the second evolutionary step with The Avian  within the movement archetype;
  1. Head gains some vertical plane ability
  2. Body limited to prone position however somewhat less than Amphibians, ‘rolling’ for killing its prey
  3. “some” vertical movement in spine
  4.  Main navigation from eyes, head, feet, tail
  5. Main locomotion programming consisting in “simple” lateral motions, combining homo-lateral extremity-center and center-extremity neuro-muscular organization for walking
  6. Primitive crawling reflex, Gallant Reflex, Hand Supporting Reflex, ATNR
  7. Myofascial Meridians; Lateral Line, Back Line, Front Line, Functional Lines, Deep Front Line, Front and Back Arm Lines

 

Mammals + Primatesmammilian level



In Mammals we see many new abilities appearing; head movement, arm and leg coordination/ability, greater spinal freedom of motion and not least finger/toe dexterity. Observed best in Ocean Mammals swimming with vertical thrusts instead of lateral! Binaural vision also enters into sensory system.  We see here elbows rising above shoulders with palms facing anteriorly, introduction of head righting reflexes, ‘hands’ gain importance for eating and ‘feet’ gaining importance in respect of the hands for posture and of course the social/family bonding reflexes emerge. The hormones associated with mammalian ‘bonding’ vasopressin and oxytocin influence greatly over the emotional/postural connection and tendon-muscle tone.
The mammals possess the 3rd evolutionary step of the movement archetypes with;
  1. Excellent 3D head motion in vertical, horizontal and lateral planes
  2. Body capable of prone and supine positioning
  3. “Good” vertical/horizontal/lateral movement in spine, yet lacking pronounced lumbar extension, combining extremity-center and center-extremity with both homo-lateral and bi-lateral neuro-motor organization
  4. Control over motion with “Bilateral coordination”
  5. Control over motion with primitive “walking” reflexes
  6. Eating reflex (Palmomental Reflex)
  7. Crawling (even cross crawling and not just Primitive Reptilian Crawling)
  8. Main navigation from head, eyes, mouth, feet, hands, tail
  9. Main locomotion programming consisting in complex body/limb movements with ‘head righting’ offering an increase in speed and precision of movement
  10. No new myofascial meridians appear however the instinctual motor programming has made big changes to allow for greater control and range of motion.

Homo sapienshomo sapiens level


 We “Humans” possess a much larger developed Neocortex than most other mammals of course dolphins, as many other species, have also very well developed Neocortex especially for communication/hunting skills. What is new or unique with Humans is the changes in the hip area. “Our” well-developed and integrated Landau, Perez and Leg Cross Flexion Reflexes, allows us to walk so well in an upright position that we left the horizontal plane and we became the only “animals” on the planet to have our spines orientated in a Vertical plane to the direction of gravity.
The Human’s possess the 4th evolution of the movement archetypes with;

  1. Excellent 3D head motion in vertical, horizontal and lateral planes
  2. Body capable of freely moving between supine and prone positions
  3. “Great” vertical/horizontal/lateral movement in spine
  4. Control over motion with “Bilateral coordination” reflexes
  5. Control over motion with advanced integration of movement patterns for “walking”.
  6. Main navigation from head, eyes, mouth, feet, hands, tail
  7. Main locomotion programming consisting in complex body/limb movements with ‘head righting’ offering an increase in speed and precision of movement
  8. The Perez Reflex. The one instinctual postural reflex that seperates humans from all other animals on the planet. The perez reflex controls the lumbar curve of the spine allowing us to remain naturally in a vertical position.
