Confidence, creativity, clinical precision… how would that feel in your clinical practice?
JEMS® Movement ART was created to help professionals like you to do extraordinary work with people of all ages and levels of function.
We will show you how to understand the patient’s movement as a story of their history, physical capabilities, emotions, behaviours and beliefs, connecting the puzzle pieces while showing up for yourself and your patients in a way that is effective, sustainable and inspiring.
The JEMS® Movement ART approach shifts the therapeutic dynamic powerfully towards a truly collaborative, creative process for both you and your patient.
Together you will uncover how your patient can experience greater ease and satisfaction in their moving body, using accurate and insightful movement experiences embedded in a skilful coaching-inspired process.
Here are professionals just like you talking about their experience of working with JEMS®:
Transforming the patient dynamic, patient empowerment, simplicity, fun.. if something resonates for you in our participants’ reflections, we would love to take you on that journey on our next JEMS® Movement ART Online Mentored Learning Programme:
How will Movement ART help me?
JEMS® Movement ART is a unique approach that creates the framework for you to work truly holistically by blending the science of brain, body, emotion and learning.
We teach you simple methods to appreciate the different domains influencing the patient’s presentation, how to identify which one offers the most effective “way in”, and clear principles to dynamically and responsively progress.
Feel confident in your practice.
We will walk you through, step by step, so that you deeply assimilate the techniques, assessment approach and clinical reasoning to work effectively through movement with patients across the functional spectrum.
Target the cause, not just the symptom.
Learn to select which movements to test for the greatest clarity and insight. Save time and enhance your manual therapy treatments as you learn to assess with specificity and relevance for each individual.
Take “functional” to a whole new level.
– Understand how the patient creates and controls their movement and the loads acting upon them with a powerful concept called Functional Force Management™.
– Learn global functional biomechanics in a simple and easily applicable way to promote efficiency and structural integrity.
Develop an “expert eye”.
Know what to look for, and understand what you see.
Incorporate embodiment principles:
Cue movement more effectively with a brain science based approach and empower your patients to identify and sense their own patterns.
Discover a fresh approach to posture,
based on natural reflexes and sensory cues, and create a greater sense of ease, elasticity and freedom.
Understand the role of emotion in a patient’s physical presentation.
Transform your patients’ experience.
Create programmes that develop confidence, ease and efficiency, using simple concepts that your patients understand easily and take ownership of.
Become an effective coach.
Create an interaction dynamic which supports optimal learning, maintains patient focus and boosts motivation.
Empower the interaction.
Learn a process which invites your patients to collaborate in a process of shared responsibility and discovery.
Progress, adapt and vary exercise techniques
with precision and creativity, to create individualised, relevant programmes that are both meaningful and fun for the patient. Immerse yourself in an extensive library of movement experiences and techniques to take to your patients.
Get the support to transform your practice.
Enjoy the open discussions in the live sessions as the Joanne and her team answer your questions, celebrate your wins and explore any blocks or challenges as you progressively implement the approach with your patients.
“JEMS®has given me the holistic key I was missing when working with patients with chronic pain. To be able to assist them in discovering their bodies and minds and build their trust in their bodies using JEMS®movement is wonderful.”
Lovisa Amkeus, Physiotherapist, Sweden

Embody your genius
Do you ever envy the self assurance that a colleague seems to have, and think that it can’t be yours?
Are you trying to consume courses hoping that more knowledge will bring that sense of ease?
The difference is usually not in the amount of knowledge, but in the awareness of how you are showing up for yourself and your patients.
Our mission is to help rehabilitation practitioners to bring their best, most brilliant selves to their work.
After two decades of teaching, we know that to achieve the confidence, enthusiasm and effectiveness you aspire to, you need support to explore your own beliefs, self awareness and communication strategies.
Movement ART equips you not just with the knowledge and techniques, but provides an opportunity for the personal insight and development that allows you to really show up authentically and let your distinctive genius shine. For many participants, this is the most game changing aspect of this unique professional development programme.
“I am kinder to myself within sessions, clients have noticed the change and are also experiencing a heightened level of being held and guided.”
Ian Blamey, Movement Coach, Australia.
Who is Movement ART for?
Movement ART is designed specifically for clinically based rehabilitation practitioners who feel deeply that there is more to movement than just muscles, mechanics and motor control.
From elite sport to chronic pain management, and every career stage, from newly qualified to the verge of retirement, our participants join us because they are motivated to address the whole person in the treatment interaction with greater clarity, confidence and creativity through an expanded understanding of the role of movement.
How does the programme work?
Movement ART is offered in two parts, Programme 1 and Programme 2.
Programme 1 comprehensively establishes the JEMS® foundation concepts with emphasis on the trunk and lower body up to intermediate functional level.
Programme 1 gives you 24 weeks access to all of the learning materials and the private online community, with the live learning events spaced out over the first 16 weeks.
Programme 2 continues your skill development, extending them to increasingly dynamic lower body applications, polishing your clinical reasoning and observation skills, and applying all of this knowledge to the fascinating and versatile upper limb. You will finish the programme with confidence, capability and enthusiasm!
Each programme is delivered in a blended learning format, using a variety of techniques to support your learning.
“One of the biggest things I appreciated about the programme was a belief in the possibility for CHANGE. The course has rekindled my belief in that possibility and re-ignited my determination to help my patients experience it!”
Hugh Ruxton, Osteopath, UK
Course 1 includes:
20 hours of live online learning and mentoring, including interactive lectures/workshops with Joanne, small group breakout rooms for clinical problem solving, and guided small group observation practice with JEMS® Learning Mentors.
These events are spaced throughout the first 16 weeks of the programme, to equip you with all the support and foundation that you need.
Then you have a further 8 weeks of access to the on demand content and online community, to study, review, refine and polish your learning so that you complete the full 24 weeks of access feeling fully confident in your new skills.
15+ hours of self-paced learning on the JEMS® Academy learning platform, including 24 weeks of access to:
– 30 video lessons with Joanne teaching you, just as she would “live”.
– Downloadable PDF handouts for each lesson. – 64 professionally produced JEMS® technique videos, featuring Joanne’s detailed cuing, facilitation and observation instruction.
– Private online community for the duration of the programme, for participant interaction, shared learning, and pre-event questions for Joanne and her team.
Is it really as good as a face to face course?

Our gait, whether walking or running, is one of our great evolutionary gifts. It is also one of the most common sources of lower limb & back injury clinical presentations. We blame age, wear and tear and overuse, focus on management of the local pathology and do a ton of glute strengthening exercises, hip flexor releases and calf stretches. Sometimes it works. But a lot of the time the problem either grumbles on or persists. What if there was a bigger picture to tap into?
In this introductory JEMS® experience, international movement expert Joanne Elphinston will be sharing with you the top tips and most effective strategies that have underpinned her work with top performers in sport at Olympic and World Championship all the way through to chronic pain presentations.
