Anat Baniel Method (ABM)

ABMABM2 ABM3ABM4ABM5 Sebastian was so happy during the entire session. That was my favorite part. At first. And then he did something he never did before. The practitioner put his feet down and knees up and once his feet hit the mat he lifted his pelvis and scooted back. Again and again. Each time looking at me and smiling. He knew what he was doing and he was loving it. We were all crying tears of happiness. It was the most amazing thing for him to choose to do something with his body and do it all on his own. The first steps to mobility!

We have our second session on Thursday. I will be sure to write about that immediately so I can add details about the therapy and practioner (she’s fabulous and Sebastian loves her) and hopefully add a video. Just haven’t had enough time in the day or night so far. As it is, it’s way past my bedtime.

  1. How exciting! I look forward to your postings and following his progress. Sebastian is such a lucky boy to have a mom like you. I was just thinking about all of you the other day and it occurred to me how this is all part of God’s plan, i.e., the way your mom raised you (sharing her knowledge and always teaching you, her appreciation for and knowledge of how to use nature or natural means whenever possible, her love and faithfulness to God), then you becoming a teacher, you traveling all over the world and learning so much about other cultures and ways of life, and then meeting the love of your life and having a beautiful boy who needs you so much and you always having his best interests at heart and constantly seeking out ways to make his life better. All of those experiences were so you were prepared to help Sebastian. I’m so proud of you and I just wanted to tell you so.
