Learning Objectives

This transformative course is for rehabilitation professionals who are ready to evolve beyond prescriptive exercise routines, to really understand their clients' movement, what influences it, how to assess it, unlock it and progress it in one of the most dynamic and supportive environments available.


Make better movement possible for people of all ages and physical backgrounds. Control is not enough – understand the strategies which reduce body stress and expand physical potential by creating and controlling forces naturally and effectively.

Get ready to think, feel and move as you learn to see and experience force flow in the body, and understand how it drives effective movement and links to clinical presentation.

Learn the magic of skilled verbal and tactile cueing to facilitate motor performance.

Take a fresh approach to posture, based on natural reflexes and sensory cues, and create a greater sense of ease, elasticity and freedom.

Discover the powerful new concept of Functional Force Management®  for analysing movement strategies and developing programmes which support and enhance natural movement.

Develop an “expert eye” for movement, and learn to identify the most effective start point for your programme by using simple, relevant movement tests to uncover the patient’s natural strategies for force management. Address the cause, not just the symptom, and integrate movement with your manual therapy skills.

Expand your skills, understand the science, and learn asimple but powerful method for helping people to take charge of their bodies, and invest in a healthy active future. You will have a great time, and your clients and patients will love what you bring back to them.

Event Description

The JEMS®approach to assessment, treatment and training is used with high performance athletes and professional performing artists, for rehabilitation and treatment with a wide variety of presentations in hospitals and clinics, and with people of all ages and physical abilities.

Developed over twenty five years to address a wide range of rehabilitation and performance needs, JEMS®is built upon a foundation of neuroscience, biomechanics, psychology, sports performance and rehabilitation research, and balanced by the insights of a wide variety of holistic movement approaches.

JEMS®encourages movement and rehabilitation professionals to think critically and scientifically but also creatively, and to meet the unique needs of their patients and clients with both technical excellence and enjoyment. It is about making complex concepts simple and easy to understand for everyone, so that people can develop the confidence, curiosity and independence to move well throughout their lives.

JEMS®is used by practitioners around the world to help their clients to move for success, to overcome injury, and to simply enjoy the potential of their bodies.
