USE OF THE OOV WILL BE IN PRIVATE SESSIONS ONLY.

What is an Oov?
Oov was designed by an Australian Osteopath and Neuroscientist to develop a better alternative to using a rolled towel to lengthen the spine. It is ergonomically designed to fit the human body with a three way curve that follows the natural curve of your spine. Made from a highly durable foam, it doesn't collapse, but pushes back at your body so that your muscles must activate while using it. However, the Oov can be used for far more than back rehabilitation. It can be used to improve movement in joints, to work the inner abdominal muscles, to improve balance and stability, to build strength and endurance and more. Almost everyone can benefit from using the Oov. This is perfect for Breast Cancer Patients, and rehabilitation of general Cancer patients, and all other issues in our bodies.

You can use it at home, yet certified health and fitness professionals can use the Oov to assess movement patterns in their clients, then use it as a correction or performance training device. It looks weird - even the man who invented the Oov didn't know what to call it - so he called it Out Of Vocabulary... and the Oov was born.

Balancing your stability
The Oov is shaped to be an unstable surface. So while it "cradles your spine," it also challenges your rotational stability, which is functional for many of our daily activities. Since the shape and material of the Oov keeps the spine in an elongated, neutral position, we can easily train clients out of dysfunctional, habitual movement patterns. More importantly, clients gain new awareness of these patterns which is a challenging aspect of our treatment paradigms.

Free your shoulders
Unfortunately, our modern world promotes unhealthy posture. Freedom and coordination of the muscles around the neck and shoulders are important for a healthy, functioning spine. The Oov was designed to allow the shoulder blades to move freely while laying on it. We can train a client's head, neck and shoulder alignment while challenging the neuromuscular system to recognize a new, healthy position of the spine.
