11  Benefits we have observed in our program participants include decreased pain, improved sports performance, improved range of motion, balance, posture, mental focus and emotional stability. Participants report decreased anxiety levels, decreased depression and improved self-esteem.  Traditional movement patterns (squat/lat pull/pull ups/bench press, etc.) are all good exercises, however they may exacerbate problems in certain populations. The familiarity of these movement patterns also encourages the exerciser to go through the movement in “auto mode.” Cross patterning movements require more body awareness and focus, and they enhance the coach/client interaction.

12  Cross Patterning: Physical movement that involves crossing the midline of the body, using the upper and lower body, or right and left side separately  Definition from Promislow, Sharon. Making the Brain/body Connection - “Each brain hemisphere controls the opposite side of the body. So by intentionally moving an opposite arm and leg across the midfield, we fire off both brain hemispheres at the same time, creating and myelinating better neural connections over the corpus collosum.” p 103  Paraphrasing from Suzana Zuzan, Prague Institute of Rehabilitation: Developmental movement patterns are wired in our DNA, and when we correctly activate those patterns, the body immediately relaxes and movement becomes more fluid.  A fundamental energy therapy technique, homolateral patterning exercises are a series of movements that encourage your body's energies to cross over from one side of the body to the other. Walking, or marching in time with your arms swinging freely beside you, are examples of movements that enable your body to maintain its natural balance.
