Movement Education

The goal for each individual is to achieve greater Strength, Flexibility and Balance;
and to be without physical tension and pain.

Individuals do this by first developing (current) Full Range of Motion, second increasing Strength-to-Weight Ratio and third by understanding more and more Movement Complexity.

What To Expect…

*Currently NOT taking on new in-person participants…

The First Appointment:

During the first appointment, you will have an opportunity to explain your needs, tell about your history and discuss what you hope to accomplish both short and long term.  You will also spend 15 – 45 minutes discovering your physical focus areas.  You will leave the first appointment with a solid understanding of how we can help and what is necessary to achieve the goals you decide upon.

The approach is very simple.  Start with passive techniques in order to develop a personalized active movement and training practice.  We always start with passive techniques in order to identify the needs of your body, but understand that passive techniques alone will never be the only solution for long term progress.  This path has given BARUCHealth the opportunity to witness the western barriers between therapist/doctor and trainer/coach.

“I want you to be free of tension and pain and to be strong, flexible and well balanced.”

Why BARUCHealth?

We are not a big box gym, training facility or cooperate therapy clinic run by the employees of business people. Our business goals do not include expansion or growth that we ourselves will not be there to service personally. Our mission is to meet people on a personal level and join them on the lifelong journey of health, wellness, vitality, and performance. We do this by running a small operation and by taking on people who respect the teacher-student relationship and who are in it for the long haul.

We live to help people with their body’s and we take your success very seriously. Therapy, Training, Nutrition and Recovery are both fun and hard work. We provide you with peace of mind and give you the plan to make it happen. Learning movements like squats, deadlifts, presses, olympic lifts, gymnastics and others are highly complex and take years to develop. We have over 45 years experience coaching these movements and will guide you safely and efficiently through the learning and adaptation process to proficiency.

We have served in clinics, big box gyms, private studios, overseas and through our own operations. We have been ‘out there’ and active in the Therapy and Training industry for more than 45 years.

Experience and knowledge are what make it possible for us to know how to best serve your goals.

Very simply we know what we are doing and we want (more than anything) for you to be happy with your results.
