Adding life to your years, and years to your life.
HMI has partnered with Movement Rx to provide FREE access to a variety of health and wellness services. From 1-on-1 coaching to live virtual classes to programs to follow and more. Scroll down to learn about all the offerings.
No shot, pill, adjustment, or quick fix can replace the success, health, and longevity you develop when you adhere to the principles built into the Movement Rx approach. Other approaches may withhold the keys to success and miss the root cause of your dysfunction. If you like the idea of a lifetime of physical and emotional freedom, then take advantage of these services!
Here's a breakdown of what we call the Pyramid of Emotional and Physical Freedom.
Level 1: Downregulation & Mindfulness
This is the place to start. It's about allowing your body and mind to RESPOND, as opposed to REACT.
Level 2: Joint & Soft Tissue Health + Meditation
Before jumping into programs or big changes, focus on developing balance and the ability to re-connect the brain and body.
Level 3: Food, Movement & Mindset Patterning
Now you can start building a foundation of good patterns and behaviors. Without these, the habits you develop will be bad ones.
Level 4: Strength & Habits
With the first 3 levels under control, the outcomes you seek are much easier to build and sustain.
In simple terms, health is like any other skill. When you pay attention to the foundation, you raise your ceiling.
Have questions about optimizing your health?? Not sure where to start? Looking for accountability? Talk to a professional Movement Rx health coach or Doctor of Physical Therapy for guidance and a plan in any of these areas:
Nutrition: Food Choice, Meal Ideas, Eating Healthy, Evaluating 'Diets', etc.
Exercise: Fitness, Strength, Running, Yoga, Breathwork, etc.
Emotional Health: Mindfulness, Reducing Stress, Meditation, Finding Calm, etc.
Pain: Joint or Muscle Pain, Imbalances, Old Injuries, etc.

(Ret.) Navy SEAL Commander
Jon Macaskill is a former Navy SEAL Commander, and through his career led a variety of dangerous missions in hotspots like Somalia, Panama, Iraq and Afghanistan. While the life of the Navy SEAL has been glorified through books and movies, there’s an unseen truth behind the scenes. Tremendous loss, grief, shame, stress, PTSD, and physical wounds are just a starting list of the toll their careers take.
Jon struggled with that toll for years, and when it was suggested he try mindfulness, he laughed. Hard.
But over time he tried it, stopped, tried it some more, stopped again, and finally got into a habit of mindfulness practice. Then he got good at it, and it was the answer he’d been looking for all along.
Because of how mindfulness has helped Jon regain control of his thoughts, emotions and responses, he knew it could help so many others. So he studied and practiced for years and now is bringing his approach to mindfulness to you.

As a former collegiate runner, CrossFit coach, and lifetime adventurer, Marissa is passionate about empowering every person she comes across to move freely and live fearlessly. She has experience treating both Olympic-level athletes and recreational weekend warriors, and she particularly loves solving long-term nagging pain problems.

Nikki Ledford is a chef, nutrition consultant, and natural foods expert based in Southern California. She believes that physical health and natural movement can be best supported by a diet consisting of real, whole foods.
Nikki’s own nutrition journey was borne out of a lifelong struggle with allergies, intolerances, insecurities, and frustrations. When Nikki began to experiment with her diet — nutrition quality, food source, preparation method, etc. — she began to experience noticeable changes in her body.
Drawing on personal experience and a desire to help others with similar issues, she decided to pursue nutrition full time. In 2011, she graduated from Bauman College, a holistic nutrition and culinary arts academy, in Santa Cruz, California, moved to Southern California, and launched her own business.
In her career, Nikki has helped a wide range of people — from cancer patients to elite-level athletes — achieve health goals and improve overall performance through better nutrition. In addition to serving a number of private clients, Nikki teaches nutrition and cooking classes, maintains an L1 Crossfit coaching certification, and practices yoga regularly.

How soon will I see results?
Great question. This, of course, varies: some folks feel distinct differences as early as the end of the first week. For others, it takes a bit longer. If done properly, you will feel better and be more likely to avoid further issues while on our platform.
I have a specific diagnosis. Are the programs OK for me?
To start with, the programs on the platform can be used by just about anyone. Sciatica, bulged disc, chondromalacia, degenerative conditions, torn labrum, post-op, etc. We've treated all these things in our clinics, and built the platform to include those issues. That said, schedule a 1-on-1 to get more specific guidance, or join any of the Live sessions to ask a question. Otherwise, if you would like to contact us us about a specific diagnosis, call us at 619-210-0945 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
