Imagine a man paralyzed from the waist down regaining function and movement...
That’s what happened to extreme athlete Soren Lindholm. On March 4, 2017, he fractured his spine in an advanced terrain ski race and was paralyzed from the waist down. In October, 2017 Soren began Neuroplastic Functional Training for his spinal cord injury (SCI). Today, he is running in the swimming pool. Imagine it happening for others with spinal cord injuries.
No, it’s not a miracle...it’s a new practice from the Neuroplastic Functional Institute (NFI), a cutting-edge technique that teaches people how to change their brains so they can independently heal.
Realizing that a number of people with spinal cord injuries (SCI) are underserved and financially challenged, NFI launched a not-for-profit organization called the Healing Out Loud Institute (HOLI). Their hope is that people will join them and help provide skills that promote independent healing to this population.That’s the plan of The Healing Out Loud Institute...with your help.
The Healing Out Loud Institute is a small, multidisciplinary collective of healthcare professionals dedicated to providing pain-free, lifelong, high-level function for the whole person. Based on the science that the brain is not hardwired or fixed, but can change its structure and function, HOLI educates the brain for health and performance to advance body, soul, and spirit. Neuroplastic functional skill sets create an opportunity for freedom in every area of life, especially for people with spinal cord injuries (SCIs). We need funding to bring neuroplastic functional skill sets to more people with physical impairments
We have a vision...a crucial vision. There are many underserved candidates that can benefit from this work. We understand that individuals with physical impairments often times have monetary challenges.
We have 4 goals for donations:
1) Helping financially under-served people with paralysis regain function
2) To build a therapy pool and training center in beautiful Glenwood Springs Colorado for intensives for these individuals to learn the work
3) To finish our documentary from the filming and success that took place during our 30 day intensive in June 2018 so that we can show this work to the world
4) To distribute the information
Please donate now, so we can begin Connecting people with spinal cord injuries and healthcare professionals with Neuroplastic Functional Training.
