Anat Baniel Method®NeuroMovement


Our brains are always changing in response to our every experience. This is called neuroplasticity. These changes can be positive—leading us to greater well-being and a more vibrant life. Or the changes can be negative (back, neck, and joint pain or limitation, and the deterioration after trauma or as people age).

Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement®—developed by Anat Baniel—is a groundbreaking, systematic, and highly effective way to communicate with the brain and take advantage of its natural ability to make positive, immediate, and powerful changes.

NeuroMovement utilizes neuroplasticity exercises that can be used at any age to rewire your brain to overcome pain and reach higher levels of physical, emotional, and cognitive performance.

This Method taps into neuroplasticity through movement and the Nine Essentials which Anat defined. Supported by neuroscience research, these principles provide the conditions that the brain requires to bring life-changing results to children and adults.

At NeuroGenesis we offer ABM NeuroMovement sessions for:

Children with Special Needs

Natural Pain Relieve

Whole Brain and Body Fitness

Rehabilitation and Recovery of Function

High Performance

Anti-Aging and Wellness

Sessions are individual, one-on-one lessons that utilize movement and the 9 Essentials to bring about immediate changes through positive brain change.

The practitioner customizes each lesson to the particular needs, situation, and skill level of the client. The work is very gentle, utilizing movement as the mechanism of communication with the brain.

Clients are called “students” because the sessions bring about transformations through a powerful process of experiential learning. Lessons are done with students as young as a few days old, all the way to people in their 90’s. The lessons are normally between 25 to 45 minutes long.

The nine essentials form the core of the NeuroMovement approach of the Anat Baniel Method.


“Scientists have defined the “rules” governing brain plasticity, Anat Baniel, working in parallel along a completely different path, has defined almost exactly the same rules and interprets them in practical and understandable human terms as the Nine Essentials that should contribute richly to clinical intervention.”


- Dr. Michael Merzenich, Ph.D. neuroscientist, professor emeritus at UCSF, Member of the American Academy of Sciences, and the “father” of brain plasticity science


Each of the 9 Essentials describes one of the brain’s requirements for waking up and doing it’s job well. Each essential helps the brain create new connections to overcome pain and limitation thus reaching new levels of physical and cognitive performance.

They Are:

Movement with attention





Flexible Goals

The learning Switch

Imagination and Dreams


“Over five years I followed a dozen of Baniel’s “pupils”, children with special needs, all with serious brain problems, and I witnessed much extraordinary progress”


— Norman Doidge, M.D., author The Brain That Changes Itself and The Brain’s Way of Healing
