The author’s program, which is a synthesis of the principles of movement and interaction, taken from different directions of martial arts, gymnastics and systems, whose task was to solve both the external task: protection, adaptation and interaction with various external factors, and internal tasks: development and maintenance of bodily and Psychoemotional balance.

Communication is a multifaceted process of establishing and developing contacts between people and groups generated by the needs of joint activity and including a set of processes:

-Information exchange,
-Interaction (exchange of actions),
-And social perception (perception and understanding of the partner).

Outside of communication,
human activity is impossible

MoComm : first acquaintance

Who can come and do the MoComm?

All. Who wants to move along the path of self-development. Regardless of level, height, weight, age and life experience. Who seeks integrity with himself and the world around him. Who is close to the idea of creative solutions to life’s problems and contradictions.

For whom: 

For all people, with any level of physical development and condition, employed in any of both motor and social systems. No limits.

What is in the basis: 

The basis of the complex of exercises, consisting of complexes aimed at liberating the psyche and the body, as well as adaptation to physical and psychoemotional loads. Various pair and group movements to expand the scope of perception and sensorimotor communication.

It is one of the ways of self-knowledge and self-development through movement

Modern way of life

The human body is designed for an active lifestyle and movement

In the society is currently dominated by a sedentary lifestyle

The organism has to make efforts not to atrophy (instead of developing)

Compensators: singing in the choir, sports sections, dances, and so on.
But these skills: – narrowly focused;
– there is sporting motivation (the victory of one person Over another);
– the number involved in relation to the total Mass of the population, on the whole small.

If we do not use compensatory mechanisms to a sufficient degree, the way of life is imprinted on our body – blocks appear.

“Blocks” are:

A block is often called what disrupts the normal, natural functions of the organism at different levels (physiological, psychoemotional, etc.).

Appear in the body in the form of tension: muscle tension and clamps, or as blocks in joints, for example, in the joints

Interfere with normal metabolism, limit the amplitude of motion and lead to a violation of general equilibrium

Lead to the formation of chronic diseases and premature aging

The combination of factors interfering with normal functioning of the basic processes of the organism (metabolism, liquid flow, digestion, evacuation, etc.) can be deemed  “flowage derangement”

Flowage derangement

Flowage derangement leads to certain effects and causal chains. For example:

There is no need for physical exertion
A person spends more and more time in a sitting or lying position
Muscles weaken and gradually atrophy
Their strength and stamina decrease, their reflex connections fail leading to their nervous function distress
Disturbances in the activity of the nervous system (vegetative-vascular dystonia, depression, myofascial syndromes); The metabolism is disturbed.
Changes in the musculoskeletal system (osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, osteochondrosis); Cardiovascular diseases (coronary heart disease, arterial hypertension), respiratory disorders (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and digestion (bowel dysfunction).
Deformations of the spine, thorax, pelvis, lower extremities, feet; General weakness, disability, insomnia, decreased mental activity, excessive fatigue; A decrease in lung capacity and pulmonary ventilation
Forms the lifestyle and behavior of modern man, which leads to burnout in the workplace and to an imbalance of relations in the family

Any way of life imposes a certain stamp on a person and an imprint on his body, nervous systems, movements, and, of course, personality.

The social body: a set of prohibitions, acquired by a person from birth through parents, through which he can not step over, which he follows unconsciously. A set of prohibitions, adopted by him in the life process, the basis of the first. The prohibitions can be divided into life-preserving and restrictive nature.

The pain body: this is an experience, associated with the pain. This concept includes not only physical, but also psycho-emotional pain.

Posture

The posture is the body language, the pose which shows how a person feels about themselves, their life, their personality, their principles, their occupation, their social descent and those of the other people. It is their name card that allows to recognize a person unmistakably without even seeing their face.

The evolution of posture is one of the most important aspects of the posture; that is the refinement of the supporting-motor system of the human being in the historical evolution 

Modi operandi МоCоmm

Pulsation is the basis of the human vital activity.

Essentially in the presence of frequency, disturbance, compressional-dilatational mechanisms and phasicity which also lie in the basis of everything obvious.
The basic principles of a healthy human body functioning are the heart, muscles, vessels, lungs and intestines performance, and the awake/asleep and leisure/work rhythms.
A disturbance in any of the systems work rhythm or its comfortable amplitude cause a disbalance of the whole construction.
The regaining of the rhythm leads the person back to the normal state which can be defined as “the state where the system works properly, comfortably and safely.”

 from http://motuspacific.wixsite.com

Our well-being is defined by the rhythm of our life and the phasicity of its parts.

Regretfully, the conventional level of the physical, mental and social activity makes a person living in the society prone to disbalance of all the basic body systems.

MoComm movements

We have created a form of motor communication, consisting of simple movement elements.
We consider 3 levels of communication:

  1. “Communication” with yourself. Focus on yourself, your body, your boundaries;

2. Interaction with the objects. Focus your attention outside your body. Create and observe your own movements, using some objects (the ball, the mokomm-stik);

3. Creating a common motor dialogue with participants, using both simple elements and improvisation;

“External” immunity

  • The method will allow to develop motor reactions, using natural movements without involvement of aggression.
    The mental stress causes in the body the same tension as the physical stress.

“Due to the fact that the motor part of the cerebral cortex is located next to the structures, responsible for thinking and feeling, as well as due to the diffusion and spread of the process in the brain, the significant changes in the motor part of the cortex cause a parallel change in thinking and in feelings.”

M. Feldenkrais

 

 

The “mirror neurons” play a separate role – they are excited when performing a certain action, or when observing the fulfillment of this action by others;

Кратк. учебн. / Пер с нем. Г.А. Обухова, А.В. Бруенка; , 1999

Applicability of the construction:
external load – a compensator capacity – a person’s strength margin

The crucial condition here is that the load and compensator sum should not be higher than the strength margin of the whole system.

Example of imbalance: Office worker:

Pre-disposition to the violations of the form of the shoulder girdle, tension of the trapezius musculature.
Disorders of outflow of blood, headache, nervousness
Circulatory disturbance in the legs
Diseases of the knees, feet; phlebeurysm; Fungal lesions.

The primary factor is a lifestyle, leading to overload.
The secondary factor is an unexpected excessive load on the legs (I decided to run 10 km at the marathon with my colleagues without training), which resulted in a knee injury or a stroke.

MoComm’s goal 

MOCOMM’S GOAL IS TO BRING BACK THE NECESSARY MOVEMENT INTO HUMAN BODY AND TEACH PEOPLE ACTIVE REST.

If one can also diminish the need of other compensators, such as alcohol, psychotropic substances, stimulators (coffee) and dangerous adrenaline stimulators (risky sports and entertainment with antisocial subtext), they can easily avoid acute interference of various medical professionals.

Everything begins with small steps.

The way you move, live, rest, and feed defines your well-being.

The question is how aware you are of the quality of your existence.

Lack of mobility

If put on a pedometer, it can turn out that people who go hundreds of kilometres away from their home hardly walk 150-200 metres on foot.

Way of life type Number of steps made
during a day
Sedentary Less than 5000
Inactive 5000 – 7500
Moderately inactive 7500 – 10000
Active 10000 – 12500
Very active More than 12500

To begin, walk a couple kilometres every day.

Practice is everyday action.

With regular return of the natural movement back to the body we can start speaking of compensating a wide range of loads and a skill of perceiving your own body which means avoiding exercises to become crucially hard.

The abundance of exercises and skills of the MoComm method will help you find individual motion and breathing balance, and bring back the feeling of your body and the variety of its strengths.

MoComm method is not a kind of theraupetic physical training or massage technique. But has a theraupetic effect being a process of education.

There is a balance between excitation and containment in a healthy organism; a person feels free to express his feelings and impulses, but he is so self-controlled, that can express them in appropriate and dignified way.
Removal of the movement restrictions can improve your quality of life in various areas.

WE BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE IS UNIQUE

Elements of the MoComm are already used in the work of physiotherapists, psychotherapists as an addition to therapy, and are also included in the training of bodyguards and police within the framework of the conflict-free problem-solving unit.

Whatever you do, MoComm allows you to do it harmoniously
