This past weekend Chris Gaines of Performance Gaines hosted Postural Respiration in Palo Alto, CA. I taught a diverse group of PT's, D.C.'s, athletic trainers, massage therapists and sports performance professionals. The attendees came from all backgrounds and facilities ranging from private practice, professional sports teams, universities, specialties in pediatrics and the military. This was a high performance group that really "brought it" with energy, attention and loads of questions! Mr. Chris Gaines did a great job hosting. Thank you Chris!

RJ, Hannah and I traveled this past week to a steamy New Orleans, LA for the NSCA National Convention Conference. The conference was filled with CPTs ,CSCSs and ATCs stopping by to learn more about the Institute and the different courses we have. Many were interested in our new PRI Integration for Fitness and Movement course as a large majority of them work with sport teams or do gym/group training. Next year we will be heading to Houston for the NATA National Convention and Las Vegas for the NSCA National Conference.

Hannah and I travled to Baltimore last week for the 2016 NATA Convention. We were able to talk to over 500 ATCs! It's so exciting to see PRI grow so much in the last couple years. Many people came up to us and said they had heard about us from blogs, different confrences or videos. We look forward to continue to grow with ATCs!

This is the first video of a series that Ron will be doing on questions that course attendees have asked during courses. Each course we have asked the faculty members to write down a question that was asked so that we can help you grow your knowledge with some topics that can be tough to grasp. Ron will be doing these videos and written responses weekly.

Earlier this month, we hosted 90+ professionals from all around the world for our 8th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium. We were so excited to show off YOUR new PRI Headquarters building. Day one started off with Rachel Loveless, Au.D., CCC-A, who gave us a great knowledge base to build off of for the next two days off. After that Jennifer Bullock, PT, OCS, PRC shared a personal story with her and her children’s experience with Auditory Processing Disorder with great treatment recommendations. Valerie Dejean, OT gave her first talk about A.A. Tomatis and her experience in France learning from the otolaryngologist and some of the reasons that the Tomatis Method has had an incredible impact on her practice. Heidi Wise led off with how the ear determines where sound is coming from and how the visual and auditory processes are related. Our first day concluded with Rhonda Musak, a NYC based actress with her performance “Rhonda Badonda: The Adventures of a Girl with a Pain in her Brain” where she documented the struggles that she was going through before being treated by Valerie Dejean and the Tomatis Method. It was an amazing experience, and we were so luck to have found Rhonda (thorough Valerie Dejean).

Day two started off with Valerie building off her first talk and she talked about how to build a mind, the development of language and how learning and consciousness are intertwined, she also led the room in a chanting exercise. Ron Hruska talked next on Hyperacusis, Tinnitus and Misophonia, where he described that many patients who have tinnitus naturally habituate to it which is one of the reasons it can be so difficult to treat. In Ron and Heidi’s next talk; Rhythm, Resonance and Reverberation, they talked about how your body has its own vibration down to a cellular level and how rhythm helps us to breathe, effortlessly walk and rotate a rib cage. Matthew Uohara, CSCS, PRT talked about how to use sound to maximize performance, and he talked about how when he is coaching he will use specific words, consonants or vowels or the client’s name at different distances depending on what training response he is going for. Ron and Heidi finished the day with teaching the class how to correctly establish resonance usuing a kazoo and a couple of take home apps, techniques and music recommendations that they can use with their patients or clients. It was an incredible two days. We can't wait for next year! Yes, that's right.....we are hoping to do a PART II on this symposium in 2017 with the same line up as this year, so stay tuned for more details! This will be in addition to our 9th Annual Interdisciplinay Integration Symposium next April, which will have a new topic of interest that will be released in the next few months!

*Unfortunately with all the hub-bub going on with hosting for the first time in our new headquarters, we didn't get nearly as many pictures as we had hoped for, so these are just a few. We promise to get more next year!

After our 2016 Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium we had a couple people who wanted to purchase kazoos that they used to establish resonance after Ron and Heidi's talk. You can now order them on our matierals page.
