I Believe

"All healing begins in the mind. If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Once you understand that you have to see your healing as already having occurred, and not something that you want to achieve, your body cannot but follow this picture you hold in your mind." 

About Connie Merk

Connie Merk is the originator of TRIVAnetics – The Cybernetic Approach To Healing Your Back Pain, a program that uses the innate healing power of both the body and the mind. Having suffered from excruciating shoulder and back pain for many years after a serious accident in 1990, she was able to find complete healing within only a couple of months simply by understanding and applying the body’s and the mind’s own healing powers. Since her healing in 1998, she has extensively studied the body and the mind. She became a Nia Technique Brown Belt Teacher, danced with Gabrielle Roth and Jonathan Horan of The 5 Rhythms, and with Vinn Marti, founder of Soul Motion. She explored the martial art forms of Aikido, Tai Chi and Taekwondo to improve her movement skills and to better understand the energy flow in the body. In 2001, she received the Dai Ko Myo Initiation (Third Reiki Level 3A) and began to incorporate Reiki into her teaching and treatments. She also trained to become a personal trainer with EDUCOgym®, a fitness training that specifically uses the mind aspect in weight training and losing weight. - Since 1998, she has been teaching Body Awareness, Movement and Back Pain classes in health centers and gyms and worked with private clients all over the world. She teaches her clients mindbody-centered awareness, positive mental attitude, and a life-style that focuses on living in the present moment, thus allowing the individual to make wiser decisions for their body and for their lives on a moment-to-moment basis.
