- Does it hurt? Nearly all of our clients experience no pain during a session. Low intensity isometric exercise and muscle testing does lead to some light muscle soreness for a small percentage of our clients 1-2 days after a session.
- How long does it take to start feeling better, performing better, etc.? This is dependent upon a number of variables. The client's DNA, injury history, nutritional history, and the duration of their chronic issues are some of the factors that play a role in one's motor control health. The more issues a client needs to have cleared, the longer it will take to start noticing the SQUARE 1™ difference. Additionally, an MCRS is going to be much faster and proficient than a new SQUARE 1™ student who has yet to be certified. An additional factor is the duration of sessions. Most typically last between 30 and 60 minutes, so it's impossible to say exactly how many sessions you will need to start feeling and performing better. That was the long answer. Here is the short answer. Most clients who see an MCRS for hour long sessions actually start noticing positive results within the first session! It's very rare for a client to experience no improvements within the first 3 sessions. So 1-3 sessions is the short answer.

- How long does the effect last? SQUARE 1™ addresses motor control so it typically yields much longer lasting "effects" than traditional "corrective" approaches. Because we can't actually make a body impervious to all forms of stress, future "breakdowns" are just part of being a living, breathing human being. But because an MCRS is bringing your human movement system closer to where it is designed to be, most SQUARE 1™ clients are pleasantly surprised that the "effect" tends to last for weeks and months. Periodic maintenance sessions are recommended, similar to the way you service a car or visit a dentist for semi-annual cleanings.
- Can the SQUARE 1™ system help me? More than likely! If your issues are related to motor control deficiencies, and they probably are, SQUARE 1™ will help you. Since motor control deficits make all of us compensate with our movement, everybody can get something out of a SQUARE 1™ session. For a very high percentage of our clients, the effects are incredibly noticeable (Testimonials). For a small percentage of our clients, the effect is not so noticeable. This is a red flag to us. For these clients, the driver of their issues is typically not directly related to motor control (example: severe tissue damage, disease, major nutritional deficiencies, etc.) and they may need to see a medical specialist. Most of our clients are people who have already sought out help through conventional modalities and yet received very little to no perceptible benefit. These clients come to us and, after 1-3 sessions, find that their symptoms have been alleviated or dramatically reduced with SQUARE 1™.
