"Body Cognition - The Method: Movement, Health, Treatment"
 
Since the development of "Body Cognition" in the 1960s and 1970s, thousands of people have experienced it. However, when we ask: What is "Body Cognition", some of the answers are given in the negative form: this is not gymnastics in the usual sense; this is not a treatment for back pains only, and so on. How, then, can we define the "Body Cognition" method: education for a proper body movement? Training and preparing thebody? Healthy gymnastics? These are titles which indicate several aspects of the method. The fundamental assumption of "Body Cognition" is that the right movement is beneficial to our physical and mental well-being and learning the right movement can considerably facilitate the solution of a long series of prevalent bodily problems.

The Method

The Body Cognition Method is not a course of treatment, but a way of life. This unique fitness system, administered by Josepha Michaeli, combines movement awareness with an original physiotherapeutic method. The physical aspect of The Body Cognition Method (proper movement and care of the body) and the intellectual aspect (knowledge of the body and an understanding of how it works) give its practitiones the capability to judge, select and adjust their activities to their body’s real needs.
 
The system is based on a specific conception of the human body which has evolved over many years of theoretical study and actual work in body movement and physiotherapy. Central to The Body Cognition Method is the ongoing study of human biomechanics. The architects of The Method have utilized this study to improve various aspects of posture and movement in everyday life.
