FMR is an acronym that stands for Functional Manual Reaction™. Functional Manual
Reaction™ is the name that the Gray Institute uses to describe the application of hands to bone
segments in order to facilitate an optimal sequence of motion during a functional movement.

FMR shares some aspects of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). PNF and FMR
emphasize the three-dimensional nature of human movement, the role of hand contact in guiding
bone movement, and the potential to increase muscle activation. FMR does not however require
specific hand placement for efficacy. FMR, in contrast to PNF, is most commonly used with the
client in an upright position so that the load and proprioceptive input produced by gravity are
consistent with the functional activity.

The forces applied to bones during FMR are relatively gentle and carry little risk because they
are consistent with the physiological movement that is occurring. During the FMR techniques,
the hands can be placed on adjacent bones, but also can be placed so that they cross multiple
joints. Because of this, FMR is not always specific to a particular joint, but it is always specific
in each of the three planes to the particular activity, as well as what body parts are creating the
motion.

This a very gentle modality used when the client is fully clothed. There are many healing energies out there. Karuna™ Reiki is but one of them. It is very powerful and helps specific problems come to the surface to heal. It works faster than traditional Reiki. Karuna® is a Sanskrit work used in Hinduism, Buddhism and Zen. It means to take away the suffering of others and could also mean to take compassionate action. We, as human beings find it very natural to extend compassionate action to another and help whenever possible.

Karuna® Reiki is an energy that is extended out of love to ourselves and others. It is stated in Buddhist literature that Karuna® must be accompanied by prajna or wisdom to have the right affect. Karuna® is the motivating quality of all enlightened beings working to help end all suffering on Earth.

The Core Unwind 12 Series utilizes a structural Integration process which is a new way of exploring your body and the relationships of its parts which is done in a sequence of sessions called a series. A whole body approach that is system orientated. Series work helps to initiate change for the better in your posture, movement, energy and knowledge of how your body works. This series is open to anyone and everyone of all ages and activity levels.

Superficial Sessions 1 – 4
We begin your Journey releasing the superficial layers to help allow access to the deeper layers as well as create space for the core to expand.

Core Sessions 5 – 8
Once the superficial layers have been opened, we then travel into the deeper core layers where we are able to release and unwind the primary compensation patterns held there during these next four sessions.

Integration Sessions 9 – 12
The final journey is to now integrate everything that has been unwound in the superficial and deep layers, connecting you to your full being.

****Please note children going through the 12 series sometimes do not need as many sessions and the duration of the sessions are much shorter. Pricing will be adjusted depending on the age of the child.***
