The instructions set forth in the books are suitable for healthy persons and in case of doubt, one should seek medical advice before incurring any activity.
• It is recommended that every movement be practiced on both sides of your body (and or your child’s left and right sides)
• Routinely take a short pause at the end of each movement in order to obtain optimal results.
• The duration and or repetition of a movement is dependent upon your personal comfort and needs.
The movements in MOVEMENTS IN TOUCH FOR COUPLES & FAMILIES are suitable for everyone within bounds of an individual’s physical capabilities and disabilities*, and can be performed by people of all age groups, and combination partners such as expectant mothers and parents; parent-baby; family pairs (siblings or parent-child); co-workers; and specially designed movements for individuals in their golden years.
*If you have any medical conditions it is strongly advisable that you obtain permission from your family medical practitioner before engaging in the movements described in the book and communicate with your partner when a movement becomes uncomfortable.
Infants can begin to experience the movements described in the book MOVEMENTS IN TOUCH FOR PARENT-CHILD PAIRS with their parents already from the age of 1 month to 2 years, depending on the weight of the child.
The overball is made of the highest quality construction but still contains small parts and must be used under adult supervision.
The books emphasize movements related to strengthening the muscles of the pelvic floor, which are essential in regulating a healthy life, particularly during pregnancy and immediately following the post-natal period. The muscles of the pelvic floor support pelvic organs (such as the bladder, intestines and uterus in females), and work jointly with the stomach muscles in the maintenance of continence as part of the urinary and anal sphincters. It is strongly suggested that you learn more about these muscles.
In order to contract your pelvic floor muscles (PFM) follow these guidelines:
1. Take a deep breath (try to inhale through your nose and exhale trough your mouth).
2. While exhaling concentrate on your PFM – contract your sphincters and draw them towards the inside of your body (imagine that you are doing a ‘lifting action’)
3. On your next exhale you shall draw your navel towards your back (by contracting the deep abdominal muscles- tranversus abdominis). This shall be done without any movement of your lumbar spine and/or the pelvis. You shall keep your spine and pelvis in neutral position.
4. Keep breathing while holding the PFM and transversus abdominis contraction as long as you can even when you are performing a movement.
Pregnant women past their 1st trimester (12 weeks+) should not lie on their backs for longer than 2 minutes at a time.
