Be Activated Technique

Be Activated Technique is a fast and accurate method for pinpointing the root cause of breakdowns or dysfunctions in your clients’ bodies and prioritising which should be managed first.

Be Activated offers a powerful new understanding of the body. Using the Be Activated assessment and treatment principles you will see the incredible ability of the body to transform from a defensive, imploded state, into one that is powerful and explosive.

The techniques you’ll learn will change the way you work.

be-activated-douglas-heel-treatment

The Be Activated system starts by testing what your body is doing now, so that changes can be clearly seen, felt (by your client) and measured.

Is your body exploding with energy or collapsing and imploding?

This is assessed using simple muscle resistance, strength and flexibility tests. Primarily, we are seeking to know how much engagement (connection) there is between the brain and the muscles. This very importantly includes using a very simple method for assessing your clients breathing habits.

This step is absolutely critical to the ongoing alleviation of any aches, pains, injuries, & injury prevention.

Be Activated Zones

Using an intuitive 1, 2, 3 grading system, Be Activated clearly segments the body into 3 distinct zones that are simple and easily identifiable to both you and your clients.

The 1, 2, 3 sequencing concept becomes pivotal when we look to understand why a client's body is behaving a certain way.

In the practical session we will learn how to identify what pattern our client is running and what it can mean when we assess this against our client's presenting issue/s.

Be Activated Muscle Tests

Establishing specific neuromuscular firing patterns in your client's body is critical to alleviating pain and dysfunction or improving athletic performance. The Be Activated system teaches you 14 simple, Be Activated muscles tests.

These tests seek to reveal Defensive Patterning; Length-Tension Inhibitions; Compensatory Patterning; Kinetic Chain Function; Sling Pattern Function; Biotensegrity Continuity

You’ll learn to pinpoint dysfunction and plan your treatment quickly and efficiently when you embrace the quality of each movement pattern within each of the Be Activated Zones.

Learn exactly, the Be Activated System that teaches you 14 simple, Be Activated muscles tests.

Be Activated Activation Points

The Activation Points used in Be Activated are specific areas or regions that are targeted, based on our muscle tests, as part of the Be Activated treatment process.

The Activation Points are mapped out on the body with an easy reference guide throughout your course manual.

The Activation Points are in the same place on virtually everyone. The Activation Points are areas and regions that you’re already familiar with, but, may never have worked on (or been too afraid to touch)

At Level One you’ll learn the concepts of Be Activated

We’ll consider the body’s response to stress, and study the body’s relaxation process. We’ll link this to Activation techniques and you’ll see exactly why so may patients and clients have recurring aches, pains, and injuries.

You’ll be guided through the Activation sequenced treatment process, from the trunk, through to the lower and upper limbs.

You’ll get to experience every concept and Activation technique yourself, and with plenty of time for practice, questions … and more practice, so you can really integrate and ingrain the system.

The science comes second.

You need to feel the difference yourself. 

I want you to leave feeling fully equipped to apply the techniques with your clients, confident in achieving lasting results.

These techniques offer an incredibly powerful toolkit that is not confined to the clinic; they can be applied anywhere at anytime.

This means Be Activated becomes a very, very empowering aspect in your clinical practice because  ‘take-home’ tool for your patients and clients. 

There will be lots to discuss on day one, so  if sitting for longer periods is troublesome, you may need to stand and move about. Feel free!  

The course gets practical and hands-on  in the afternoon of Day 1, and throughout most of Day 2.

WORKSHOP CONTENT - Level 1

Learn 14 Muscle Integrity Tests

What You Will Learn ...

  • test for dysfunction in specific muscles
  • assess simple and complex kinetic chain movement patterns
  • establish which Be Activated Zone is firing and which is not
  • establish muscle firing order and reveal compensation patterns
  • establish inhibited versus facilitated muscle patterns

How This Helps You and Your Clients ...

  • distinguish between what is painful versus dysfunctional
  • sharpen your focus on your treatment plans
  • assess whether your treatment is actually working
  • assess for changes in strength
  • assess for changes in neural drive to muscles and kinetic chains
  • provide you and your client with measurable outcomes
  • solve complex problems quickly by getting to the root cause
  • plan follow-ups & enhance your client’s ability to self-practice
  • establish minimum standards of strength integrity with clients

Learn 3 Be Activated Zones

What You Will Learn ...

  • clearly segments the body into 3 distinct zones
  • learn intuitive 1, 2, 3 grading system

Time for

Level 2

Now the fun really starts, based on the strong foundations we’ve built from Level One.

In Be Activated, Level 2, we’ll deepen your understanding and excitement of the techniques, and cover further Activations.

By now you’ll have integrated the Be Activated system into your work, and no doubt  you’ll have questions like… I want more – what’s next?!

We’ll cover more Activation techniques to really dig deep, and integrate and demonstrate a full client assessment & treatment.

You’ll learn how to apply the Activation techniques in wider functional situations, and we’ll address any blocks you might be experiencing with your colleagues or clients.

We’ll  build on your knowledge by applying the techniques to movement patterns, zones of transformation and exercise.  

I’ll introduce new concepts around visual field stress patterns, and we’ll look at breaking associated belief patterns.

WORKSHOP CONTENT - Level 2

Advanced applications

As you can see above, Be Activated Level 1 is logical and well structured. 

The Level 2 workshop builds on the principles and philosophies of Level 1 content and techniques.

Level 2 content includes selected topics and techniques that are tailored to each specific group of attendees. Typically, topics may include: 

  • Self-Activation sequences
  • Additional Activation Points for Slings 
  • Lateral, Posterior & Anterior Slings
  • Diaphragm; habitual patterns; dysfunction & injury
  • Breathing independent of kinetic chain patterns
  • Mammalian Dive Reflex (you’re probably wondering why 😉 )
  • Visual Field Stress Responses
  • Proximal and Distal Psoas activations in standing and in hip flexion
  • Ribs-to-Iliac Crest Activation patterns, dysfunctions, & Techniques
  • Be Activated Zones – Patterns, Injuries & Acute conditions
  • Jaw, Pterygoid, & Tongue as central drivers
  • Intraoral Techniques
  • Transformational Zone dysfunction
  • as well as, revisiting, fine-tuning, and correcting Inhibited and Facilitated muscles and kinetic chain patterns   

It is very simple to understate the power and value of Be Activated as an assessment and treatment method because it looks so simple.

Simply, Be Activated is about finding muscles and kinetic chain patterns that are not working optimally and providing an environment for change in those muscles and kinetic chain patterns.

In fact, it’s really that simple and easy. From there, you can make it as complicated or as simple as you like. 

Be Activated applies manual therapy techniques that you probably already know. It uses manual muscle tests that you probably already know.

So where’s the magic?

It is easy to learn, but, takes a lifetime to master.

Is this training right for you?

This is a question that only you can answer. (I know, I know … crumby answer), but, consider this … if you get to the end of the first day of Doug’s workshop and decide that it’s not for you, I’ll personally issue you a full refund.

Seriously though, the question should be …
“Is this training right for your Clients and Patients?”

The reason is, that this workshop is not dependant on whether you are a doctor, a physio, a chiro, or a manual or a movement therapist of any kind. It is not dependant on whether you have been a manual or movement therapist for 6 months or 20 years. Doug has trained therapists and practitioners from around the world and from most every manual and movement-based therapy.

The answer depends on the whether you want, or need, to own a very special, simple framework that creates immediate and great success with consistent, measurable outcomes for your clients and patients.
