Holistic Movements promote Multi-Level Development

The essence of Holistic Movements is the inborn Neuroplasticity that rebuilds:

  • neurocircuits
  • the gaps that may occur in the brain
  • boost the neuro system


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:

  • Social Behavior
  • Balance Skills
  • Speech Disorders
  • Define Right hand/Left hand


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.

Personal Statement

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


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.

Our Goals...


To make people remember how good it is to walk well.


To make people remember how good it is to be healthy.


To make people remember how good it is to feel well and confident.


To make people remember how good it is to be able to express his/her self.


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.

Bridging Body-Mind Connection

1st Stage:

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.









2nd Stage:

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.


3rd Stage:

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.
