The Franklin Method uses Dynamic Neurocognitive Imagery (DNI)™ as an imagery-based systematic method for movement and postural control retraining. DNI uses progressive movement exercises combined with various methods of imagery to draw participants’ attention to anatomical structures and locations, body biomechanics, as well as spatial and functional relationships between body segments during movement. The below equipment incorporates Dynamic Neurocognitive Imagery (DNI)™ with movement to change your body, by first changing your mind!
Franklin Fascia Massager – Oval
Eric Franklin’s compact Fascia Massager Oval relaxes tight muscles, increases circulation and wakes up the body’s sensory receptors.
It’s ideally sized for treating the hands, neck and feet, but can be used to release tension and smooth out connective tissue anywhere on the body. While slowly rolling the Franklin Fascia Massager Oval between your hands and forearms, up your neck, holding it between your fingers or squeezing it in your palm, you not only massage the tissue but also create a sensory experience that re-informs your brain of how your body feels and moves, promoting relaxation and natural movement. Phthalate free.
Franklin Fascia Massager – Peanut
Stimulate the senses and increase circulation while releasing muscle tension with Eric Franklin’s Fascia Massager Peanut.
The firm points wake up sensory receptors in the body, which not only increases blood flow to local areas but makes you more aware of your body and how it moves. Performing simple tactile and imagery exercises, like slowly swiping your foot across the Franklin Fascia Massager Peanut or rolling through the arch, will relax tense muscles while preparing the foot for weight bearing and increased movement.
The organic profile of the Fascia Massager contours to the body, offering an invigorating massage when rolled along the calf or any tense muscle group. The rolling, kneading motion releases soft-tissue adhesions, liberating the fascia and restoring natural movement. Phthalate free.
