What?

A cutting-edge system of healing the body that will change the way you work.

The Be Activated system offers a powerful new perspective on why the body becomes dysfunctional. Douglas Heel’s courses show how simple changes to incorrectly functioning muscles allow the body to make immediate shifts towards resilience.The results are incredible. An Activated body will change from a state of tension and pain, to a strong relaxed state of excellent performance.

When we do the right thing, the body responds immediately. Be Activated is used globally by elite sports teams, celebrities, the fitness industry and remedial practitioners alike. As well as treating injuries and enhancing sporting performance, it’s a powerful tool for stress management, and breaks common patterns of chronic pain.

How?

The techniques can be used safely and immediately in your practice, and often result in high rates of friend referrals. First a series of quick functional tests are applied to highlight injury, weakness, poor muscle patterning and reduced range of movement. Next, easy manual techniques are applied. These techniques activate and reset the body offering both client and practitioner instant results and objective measures to gauge effectiveness. If it works, it’ll work straight away. Lastly, quick treatment exercises are taught to clients, enabling them to use them at home.

Why?

Be Activated is a system being used by over 2500 physical therapists, chiropractors, osteopaths, personal trainers, athletic coaches and doctors worldwide to help their clients feel better, function better and access greater quality of life. At Level One Douglas will introduce you to the concepts of Be Activated, and you’ll consider the body’s response to stress. The relaxation process is then covered, and linked into Activations. You’ll then be guided through a sequenced treatment process from the trunk through to the lower and upper limbs. There is plenty of time for practice, questions… and more practice. The goal is for 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.

The world wants instant gratification. Clients more than ever demand to see and feel results. The Be Activated system meets the needs of your client by offering immediate, measurable results that will offer them significant relief and improved function as you work with them.

What?

The course has reinforced and expanded on the techniques learnt on the Level 1 course, whilst moving it all into a dynamic setting. I can use these techniques in conjunction with others to produce fast and lasting results. This follow up course focusses on taking skills learnt in the Level 1 Be Activated course to the next stage.

Further to this you will gain more techniques and Douglas will demonstrate a full assessment and treatment on a client/patient so everything ties together in a clear ordered fashion. The aim of Level 2 is to expand your skills, renew your excitement in the impressive gains you can have with these techniques!

The course will consist of both lectures, practical, question and answer sessions, and a full assessment of a course participant.

What Douglas says:

“Level 2 is where we’ll reach a whole new level of fun together, based on the strong foundations you’ve built from Level 1. The aim of Level 2 is to deepen your understanding and excitement of the techniques and we’ll cover more Activation techniques to really dig deep, and I’ll demonstrate a full assessment and treatment on a client.

We’ll then build on your knowledge by applying the techniques to movement patterns, zones of transformation and exercise. I’ll introduce you to some new concepts around visual field stress patterns, and we’ll look at breaking associated belief patterns. Be Activated Level 2 will reinforce the skills you already have, and equip you with some powerful new tools!”

Click here to secure your place now.

At Level One you’ll be introduced to 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.

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 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 any time. 

The course is sometimes delivered in a room with plinths, and sometimes mats are used if plinths are not available. If you have difficulty getting on and off the floor please let us know, as using mats may not be appropriate.

There will be lots to discuss on day one, so if sitting for long 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.
