The need for an integrated approach
In recent years, research in various areas has clearly shown important correlations between all the systems that regulate health and behaviour; for example, an inflammatory state can always be observed (often in a cause-effect vicious circle) in presence of various issues such as anxiety, depression, dermatitis, intolerances, etc.
Headaches, chronic pain and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) – just to list some examples – are among the most difficult problems to manage and tackle without an integrative approach that addresses the emotional, mental, self-awareness, physical (such as activation, joint release, physiological recovery), nutritional and anti-inflammatory spheres too.
Human experience always involves all systems, at all levels: from the reactions that occur in a cell, through to the nervous system and to the most complex behaviours.
That is why a comprehensive, inclusive and integrative approach needs to be developed.
When a person opens the door and walks into your study, they always do so with a specific problem to tackle and with a number of other issues or factors that cause it or, at the very least, support it.
This could be physical or emotional pain, a state of anxiety, trauma, an allergy or a debilitating illness...
They may have a specific cause in mind, but our job is to see the whole picture.
To help an anxious person, for example, it is essential to analyse and act various levels: their brain might be overexcited by social networks, they may lack certainty and predictable perspectives, perhaps they feel trapped in their body- which is more often the cause rather than the consequence of these situations, they may engage in pro-inflammatory and dysfunctional nutrition, have to account for epigenetics, allostatic load and more.
Even what might seem like a ‘simple’ sprained ankle is always linked to a significant, if not even traumatic, emotional event. Emotional memories stay active in the background if not resolved, feeding off each-other’s pain and inflammation. Negatively dwelling on it after an accident can alter identity and the body map; athletic competitions may become relational conflict and so on.

This graph shows the Switch Map (you will learn about it in the master’s course, along with other practical methodologies).
These levels provide a way to analyse and then work on all the systems involved:
- Links between Mental-Postural-Motor Flows
- Brain Networks’ emotional and affective processes
- Circadian rhythms, physical activity and other basic adjustments
- Inflammation and psychosomatic issues
- Epigenetics for profound change
- The 3 levels of Neural Plasticity
- Nutrition and Metabolism of Mental and Body Processes
- Bowel - Microbiome – Brain Axis
- Primary social patterns and Evolutionary Relationships
