Holistic Movements promote Multi-Level Development
The essence of Holistic Movements is the inborn Neuroplasticity that rebuilds:
Neuroplasticity is the capacity of the nervous system to develop new neuronal connections. Neuro transmitter is a chemical substance released from a nerve fiber that effects the transfer of an impulse to another nerve or muscle. Neuro-circuit is a functional entity of interconnected neurons that is able to regulate its own activity using a feeback loop.
Holistic Movements along with emotional and cognitive development will promote healing and a shift on:
It is treating the cause, the foundation of the symptoms. It means that the brain can relearn. Early learning is about standing and falling, not words. It is using the floor, where the child can role, creeping, crawling, and walking that she is able to speak and think. Learn how to know and use the space where she/he is. It is the beginning of the expression of her/his Being.
Benefits of Holistic Movements / Padovan Method
HM/PM helps with walking, speaking and thinking all at the same time. HM/PM can help many parts of the brain simultaneously because much of brain function is interconnected. So, the same few HM/PM exercises help a wide range of difficulties. You will be able to increase your concentration on daily activities, increase your coordination and balance in sports, improve your reading and writing skills, your organization of thoughts and feelings, and your quality of life with your diagnosis.
Using HM/PM, you become proficient in your reading and writing skills, better your concentration, coordination, rhythm and balance in all life activities. Though focused on one specific goal, it is not uncommon to see other areas improve as the therapy progresses. This is what happens through the connection body and neuro -plasticity:
The Being does for itself...
The Nature infinitely transforms itself...
and together we can achieve for all.

Our Method / Padovan Method
What is Holistic Movements/Padovan Method?
If you or a loved one struggle with any of these issues, Holistic Movements / Padovan Method (HM/PM) will help you. Through a simple series of repetitive movements (swinging, rolling, creeping, walking with hands and feet on the floor, and marching) which stimulates the nerve cells in the brain and allows it to reach its appropriate development. In essence HM/PM accelerates and rebuilds the conductibility process of nerve cells thereby reestablishing neurological functions necessary to improve focus, reading and writing skills. HM/PM works according to your own brain maturity.
It is not physical training but a neurological maturing. The method accelerates the rebuilding of the conductibility process of nerve cells reestablishing the neurological functions.
HM/PM works with the brain "as it is" tailoring the treatment to each client's neurological maturity. It is not a "one size fits all" approach.
Our Method/Padovan Method
One of the great benefits of this therapy is its holistic approach. If we observe all movements that occur in nature, we will attain healing. Nature is holistic, as is each human being. Holistic means treating the whole person, including mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of the disease. This therapy, in restoring broken connections and rebuilding functions, is a natural process.
I love my job because I can see, feel and recognize great and deep results using Neuro-Functional Reorganizational therapy.
Lorena Vietor, Holistic Movements, LLC
"I can help you through physical movements without stress and no anxiety. The brain can relearn."
My name is Lorena Vietor. I am licensed and certified as a Holistic Life Coach, Functional Training Specialist, Personal Fitness Trainer, and Holistic Stress Management Specialist in the USA and Speech Pathologist in Brazil. I have spent my professional career practicing the Padovan Method, along with my speech pathology education because of its applications in speech pathology.
In my 34 years of using the Padovan Method, I see remarkable success treating a wide variety of clients. Typical clients come for help with autism, selective mutism, dsylexia, to recover from strokes or brain injuries. I can help with many symptoms created by trauma. I also work well children with developmental disorders.
I have been treating kids and adults locally, out of state, and out of country. The experiences have been enjoyable for both myself and my clients with excellent improvement. The intense treatments have customized timelines for each client but sometimes we can see improvement the same day! In front of the parents and the therapist.
It is amazing what we can achieve using the Padovan Method intensively to positively affect their walking, sensibility of touch, chewing, behavior, verbalizing more sounds, etc. This intense treatment has been used with Autism, Selective Mutism, Neurological Disease, SABT2, seizures and can be done with any difficulty that the client has presented.
2-Treating SABT2 children
I had the opportunity to improve some of these children intensively using the Padovan Method. We (both the parents and me) had amazing results, not only seeing physical movements but also general and important improvements during the week.

My purpose is to recover people for their best, help them to fulfill themselves with love, confidence and good self esteem.
Physical Movements treats adults and children who have lost or never had a development because of a disease, accident or an immaturity existing since birth.
People can recover mental and physical balance and the ability to focus and concentrate, self awareness can be developed.
As physical balance is recovered so too emotional and cognitive development. These movements spark a WAKE-UP in all global structures and consequently evolve all the areas related to speak along emotional-social and cognitive development.
"Language is a result of the Neurological Organization."
For the Padovan method in general: hands down, the best and most comprehensive therapy ever for our son. We have done biomedical (and continue to do so, but with Padovan, we need less and less supplementation and if we were to go off GFCF for a meal, the consequences are mild compared to the craziness of years before), energy therapies (LEAP, SCIO), and MNRI (useless in the long run in autism). Padovan is the only therapy we have tried that is non-regressive. The improvements come slowly and gradually and stay. They also cross many areas: digestion, sleep, behavior, sensory integration, cognition, gross and fine motor skills, communication. Improvements are all-around, not just in one area of functioning.
Also, if one has taken the course, it's also a diagnostic tool. One can see what needs improvement and what to work upon. The method is sequential and fail-proof. It is very comprehensive and the most effective method I've seen for low-functioning kids and adults. The kids, after 3 years, are unrecognizable---confident, natural-looking in that they don't have odd behaviors, and healthy.
Lorena has the extraordinary ability to see short-term and long-term goals with her considerable experience in Padovan therapy. She has worked with severe cases, is not threatened by the enormity of her task, and is able to make the most of any therapy schedule. Lorena is extremely caring, talented, knowledgeable, and produces results.
With my son, 12 years old, autistic, non-verbal and low-functioning (around age 2), we saw impressive changes with just a week of treatment with Lorena. He was calmer, more perceptive, made new sounds, and we were able to enjoy a vacation for the first time since he was a baby. We went on a road trip to San Francisco and he was agreeable and happy. We are continuing with Lorena's prescribed program 3x weekly. Today, someone at the Farmer's Market commented that my son was extraordinarily calm and sociable for such a low-functioning child, and that "whatever program he's on must be working!" Last week another vendor at the market said the same thing---that my son, despite the severity of his delay, seemed "better" than most autistic kids she came across.
Hope this helps. You are in good hands with Lorena.
I have been diagnoses with Dyslexia and ADHD. In the three months that I have been doing Holistic Movements training with Lorena Vietor, I can see many changes in my writing and comprehension. I have also noticed changes in my behavior. I have become more coordinated. I have also noticed I make less mistakes and transpositions, and I am more comfortable and less frustrated communicating verbally. Written correspondence and my reading comprehension have greatly increased. There are also subtle changes like being able to whistle when I have never been able to whistle, improved handwriting, and improved hand-eye coordination. This therapy has changed my life, and I would recommend this to everyone. My whole outlook on life has changed, I am more at peace with myself and I feel very confident in dealing with people in life. Confidence and higher self-esteem were some of my accomplishments with this therapy.
I have been doing Holistic Movements training with Lorena Vietor for 14 weeks. I am a 48 year old male with ADHD. I have noticed a great improvement in my handwriting; it is a lot more legible and more fluid. I have started typing, and reading comprehension has improved. The left side of my body has become more coordinated. My hand-eye coordination has improved, and my eyes are less sensitive to bright lights. These subtle changes have improved my confidence and communication skills. I would recommend this therapy to anyone of any age.
It is with great pleasure that I write about my son and my experience working with Lorena Vietor. Lorena worked with my 6 year old son, Daniel for 7 months, once per week. Daniel has ADHD, which has affected his ability to focus, to regulate his energy, and to make friends. Lorena used a sequence of exercises (The Padovan Technique) to help Daniel, as I understand, balance his brain energies. Daniel gained confidence in gross motor activities, such as jumping rope and crossing the monkey bars, as well as, his ability to understand emotions and begin to regulate his feelings. In time, Lorena also incorporated drawing and discussions while working with Daniel.
Lorena was consistently patient and compassionate, but also firm and clear with Daniel. She went above and beyond, by talking with us (his parents) about Daniel’s strengths and possibilities for school choices. She believed in Daniel and his abilities and encouraged us to recognize these. Lorena is someone who is honest, capable, and hard working. She clearly loves her students, and is a master in using the Padovan technique. As a parent and educator myself, I have no hesitation in recommending Lorena as a therapist.
Bridging Body-Mind Connection
Walking and wanting
In the first stage, we examine the physical progression from walking to speaking to thinking. In the second stage, we look at the accompanying cognitive and emotional development of wanting, feeling and thinking. Now we underline the connection between body and mind by seeing exploring the relationship between these two lines of parallel development.
Speaking and feeling
Although for the sake of clarity, we are looking at this development in parts, it is important to remember that while we have dominant stages during this process, this does not mean that the other ones have stopped developing.
The first pairing, that of walking and wanting, occurs because the walking movements are the impulse to want. When the child starts to walk, he/she is able to take what he/she wants. Now, the atavistic cognitive process has more development in order to refine the physical body-mind. Through speech, the child is able to express his/her feelings, what she/he does or does not like. Even before experimenting with language, feeling can be manifested through crying, which we can consider the first speech.
Thinking and thinking
Finally, while the thinking process started when the child was able to focus and take what he/she wanted, it further develops and becomes the dominate stage after speech. This is because developing speaking provides the neurological advancement to further the level of thinking. Again, it is vital to remember that the whole body-mind connection is a holistic process because it happens together, nothing is unrelated. In conclusion, neuro-motor development is extremely important is in reaching cognitive and emotional maturity. This is reached by love, coherence in words and attitudes from the people around us, space to move to reach one's desires and opportunities to speak be heard. We have to keep in mind this holistic process each time we have a client in front of us.
BEING. Five points of Holistic Movements/Padovan Method
Holistic Movements is a repetition of the natural steps of neuro-motor development in human beings.
Holistic Movements is a method that treats adults and children who have lost or never had normal development because of disease, accident or an immaturity existing since birth.
Through the repetition of the natural steps of neuro-motor development of human being, connections can be rebuilt in the brain because of our inborn Neuroplastcity.
People can recover mental and physical balance and the ability to focus and concentrate, self-awareness can be developed.
As physical balance is recovered, so is emotional and cognitive development.
