Be Activated – by Douglas Heel

Be Activated is a constantly expanding and changing therapeutic and performance based system developed by Douglas Heel over 12 years ago. We encourage the body back into patterns of function that maximise both the body's ability to heal and perform; we strive to meet the priorities of the body. Be Activated has a background principle called 123. It identifies the way the body is trying to meet its priorities, and what it has to sacrifice and put at risk in order to do this. We want to move the body into states of right sequence. To do this we use powerful activation techniques that give immediate physiological changes to the body in easily measurable and quantifiable ways. We believe that when you do the right things to the body, it will respond immediately.

We see these changes at many levels, but the easy ones to recognise are that of function and so we measure strength, power, flexibility, endurance, speed, balance and co-ordination. It is exciting and sometimes unbeliphysiotecble just how dramatically the body can change, and reminds us just how powerful the capacity of the human spirit to heal and perform can go. As significant, but less quantifiable are states of relaxation achieved, allowing clearer thought, more stable emotion and mental states, unlocking of stress patterns that then allow for behaviour changes in current stress situations.
