Kerstin Kussmaul & Barbara Roitner Myoreflextraining for Dancers Prevention of injuries and the creative potential of Myoreflex therapy Myoreflex therapy works with the muscle sensors as a tool for regulation, thus reaching through this deviation the control center – the brain. This physiological connection can be used to perceive specific muscles and to activate them in movement. Our brain’s capacity to discern, to modify and to complement is almost infinite. In this way we create new opportunities to translate our internal experience into movement. Using specific touch and movement, we will clarify anatomical functions, details and relationships. We will focus on some notorious muscle groups that, depending on the kind of „use“, can create problems even in other regions in the body. As an example the inefficient use of the muscle goup psoas /adductors /tensor fasciae latae can arise as knee or lower back pain. Regulating the muscle tone will increase the range of motion and the functional muscle strings will work more efficently. Muscle tone regulation can be achieved through exercises called „Kraft in der Dehnung“ („how to strengthen a muscle while stretching it“). This is a principle also well known in Hatha – Yoga which we will incorporate as well as the perspective of traditional chinese medicine, as the functional muscle strings relate to the meridians as recognised by the TCM.
