The Burdenko Certification Institute was
established to provide health professionals with a means of formalizing their
knowledge of the Burdenko Method. The Burdenko Method is a unique, innovative system for rapid
rehabilitation, conditioning, training, and injury prevention. It has been
developed and refined by Dr. Igor Burdenko, Ph.D.
over a period of forty years in both Russia as well as the United States.
Many individuals, among them Olympic athletes, world-class ballet dancers,
seriously disabled individuals, elderly persons and young children, have
benefited from this original and extraordinarily effective system.
The primary objective of the Burdenko Certification Institute programs is to educate individuals in the philosophy and techniques of the Burdenko Method, a novel way of using your body to optimize health and prevent injury. The Burdenko Method, uses a unique combination of water and land exercises to enhance conditioning, increase neurophysiological efficiency, and heal injuries. This is an active land and water program. All participants will be required to engage in water and land, and to practice teaching others how to perform the exercises.
WHY TAKE THIS PROGRAM?
The BCI certification programs provide an opportunity to learn how to practice and teach this unique and highly effective system taught by its founder. Anyone who is interested in a cutting-edge approach to physical well-being, injury prevention, or rapid healing techniques will benefit from this program. This certification is meant to provide extensive knowledge rather than a simple framed diploma.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO TAKE THIS PROGRAM?
The programs given by the Burdenko Certification Institute are open to all health practitioners who have had professional training in anatomy and physiology. The majority of our participants have been physical therapists, rehabilitation therapists, physicians, and athletic trainers. However, professional credentials are not our only criterion; we also take into serious consideration a person's commitment to, and passion for, helping others, as well as their talent for doing so.
LEARN - PRACTICE - TEACH
The process of learning the Burdenko Method involves a three-step sequence:
LEARN The student learns the philosophy of the Burdenko Method, and then is shown specific techniques that exemplify, illustrate and expand upon that philosophy. This learning phase is accomplished through written materials, demonstrations, and active participation.
PRACTICE Practice occurs in groups or in pairs, under the supervision of an instructor. Feedback is given by both the partner and instructors.
TEACH After learning how to perform a particular exercise sequence, the student is then asked to teach that sequence to his or her partner. Observations and corrections are given by both the partner and the instructor.
TEST Upon the completion of the certification, all participants will be given a "hands-on" test.
