Medical Systems vs Wellness Systems / Paul Cramer, RMT
Jul 17, 2020 Season 2 Episode 3
Gillian McCormick, Susannah Steers

The way we move is a tool for communication, how we embody our thoughts and emotions. Moving well is an art that takes time and involvement, requires learning and support. Our wellness can be profoundly affected by how well we move and yet practitioners who address movement are not adequately covered by our Medical System. So, perhaps we have conceptualized our medical system on the wrong premise. Instead of only healing us when we are sick, perhaps we should consider greater financial support for keeping us well.
