Contractile Fields with Phillip Beach and Tania Huddart

2-4 March 2018

Innermost Garden Hall, 31 Lawson Pl, Mount Victoria

Learn a new whole-body movement model — Contractile Fields — that will change the way you think, move, and teach.

It is remarkable that we have come so far in our biomedical understanding of the human body yet we have no coherent models that attempt to map whole-organism movement patterns. Phillip’s model of movement — the Contractile Field — attempts to bridge that conceptual gap in our understanding. The model suggests new approaches to biomechanical assessment and then sheds light on the world’s oldest medical map, the Chinese meridians.
