Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have to use a balance board?


No, but it is beneficial as it stimulates your balance (vestibular) system to increase focus and attention.




Can I just buy the DVD or book and do the Bal-A-Vis-X exercises with my child?


You could introduce yourself to the exercises however it is highly recommended you attend a training in person as there are many subtleties and nuances to this program. Attending a training will provide far greater insight and understanding to proper technique and how to modify and correct errors in physical technique to provide maximum benefit of the program.




How long is a private individual Bal-A-Vis-X session?


The session, after the initial visit, will be 30-45 minutes.




Do you accept insurance?


Insurance is accepted in the Hamden office (beginning September 2020). Private pay clients are seen in Northford, at the Hamden office beginning August 18, 2020 or at the family’s home if necessary.




How does Bal-A-Vis-X differ from other programs based on, or related to, physical movement?


“Several things. First, rhythm. And I mean natural rhythm. Not matching a tone or a metronome or a musical beat or any other outside source. The rhythms of Bal-A-Vis-X are the natural outcome of proper physical techniques--which techniques one learns and commits to muscle memory during our trainings. Second, visual tracking. In a typical 30-minute Bal-A-Vis-X session one tracks across three "midlines" (side-side, up-down, near-far) probably 1,000 times. Third, entrainment. The majority of our exercises are done with a partner and/or in concert with others. Synchronicity is always the goal. In a Bal-A-Vis-X setting no one is allowed to be a Lone Ranger, free to follow his own plan. Fourth, responsibility. As soon as you are fully competent with even a few exercises, you are immediately set the task of teaching those exercises to a new or less competent student--always, of course, under the trained eye of your instructor. You, still a student, are responsible for the new student while the instructor is responsible for you both. In time, as your competence grows, and you become less a student and more an instructor yourself, your responsibilities and confidence grow exponentially. Earned self-esteem naturally follows.” ( From Bill Hubert’s FAQ tab, http://www.bal-a-vis-x.com/faq.htm)
