Movement Lesson™ Training
Parents and Practitioners

   Michelle Turner’s Movement Lesson™ training courses concentrate on providing you with a detailed understanding of functional touch and movement in the human body. You’ll be introduced to System Mechanics, the study of functional developmental movement patterns within biological systems based on universally understood and applied scientific principles. 

    Michelle Turner has developed a very particular form of touch to develop a child’s sense of balance, counter-balance and rotation in such a way as to integrate these with the use of their topical senses such as vision to help a child to develop functional development movement patterns that might otherwise be lacking in an individual child’s development. You will learn how to evaluate, stimulate, initiate and enhance ease of movement to create movement and cognitive responses in special children and achieve increased mobility, pain relief and optimal health based on scientific principles. You will learn how to use Michelle Turner’s  theoretical framework to improve physical outcomes; how to develop, use and apply her tools and techniques; and how to plan for your integration into the business world for continued success through the application of Movement Lesson™ as a successful and competent practitioner.

    To support your professional development, additional videos and techniques are updated weekly and are available on-line on Michelle Tuner’s video library All levels of the US training are held at the Movement Lesson™ Center in Peoria. All classes will be video recorded and will be available exclusively for class participants. Join us in this unique training and the first of its kind.
