Course Description

In this course you will learn how to train while having an injury which means not working on your painful area but learning how to treat and heal your shoulders, neck, elbow and wrist without even touching the painful area and letting the water do the job for us.

Some of the swimming coaches will say they hope their swimmer will break one of his hands!!!, of course they don't really mean that, but what they mean is that they will really want to work on their swimmers' legs, dolphin kick, core muscles and more.

In this course-shoulder WEST course, you will learn how to use the pain to strengthen your body, elongating your muscles, loosen the painful part and learn how to swim a little different which means swim the WEST way.

You will get 5 different workouts, & 1-10 videos for each workout in order to understand the drills better.

You don't need to think. We did the thinking for you!!

And the amazing thing is, that you will probably swim faster afterwards- due to your pain.

I don't believe in resting when getting injured. It is bad for the brain, bad for the body, energy, heart and much more. So if you know how to swim at least 300 yards (260 meters) or more and you feel pain in your shoulder, neck, scapula, wrist, and elbow or if you have a frozen shoulder, this course is definitely for you.

Instructor Biography

Ori Sela, Owner and CEO at "Water World" and Founder of WEST swimming.

Hi, I'm Ori Sela, owner and professional manager of Water World and WESTswimming technique.

I grew up next to the sea and never left the water since. The water was the only place I could feel good, relax and just swim. I was never a talent or an Olympic swimmer but I believe in hard work and love long distance swimming.

Today, after passing the age of 42, I have an amazing wife, Tami & 3 kids, Tom,Libby & Dean, and over 30 years of experience as a swimmer, a qualified hydro therapist, swimming coach, babies swimming instructor, Watzu, Jahara and shiatsu therapist, triathlon coach, open water coach, therapeutic swimming instructor, pregnant women coach and for my mom - hold a BA in business & marketing from IDC, Herzliya.

But most importantly, I work with thousands of babies, kids and adults, some of which suffer lower back or neck pains, recover from CVA or an accident, or fighting a fear of the water, and teach them the right way to swim.

Today, Water World is one of the biggest most professional swimming and hydrotherapy clubs in the world with over 140 coaches and therapists working in the water, believing in the water and the strength it can give you.

I believe people are different and every man or women needs to swim according to their own unique DNA. What's right for Michael Phelps is probably not right for you, and what's right for you is not right for Muhammad, Charles, Jennifer or Tom.

I am here in this world to help people; I believe in the water and love the water with every part of my body and every breath I take.

Join us, and feel amazing, you will know that it is right for you.

Coached, swam and claimed the World record with 5 of my friends in the longest relay open water swim, from Cyprus to Israel and swam with his team 377 km, in order to raise the awareness on the issue of sea pollution in the Mediterranean (in association with Zalul NGO).

The Dream – to teach and heal millions of people who suffer from lower back pain all around the world with the WEST (Water World Swimming Therapy ) swimming technique and all online.

In Addition – Ori gives consultations on building and operating swimming pools.

Ori talked about “The Power Of The Sea" in TEDx Nicosia and told his story as a problematic child until breaking a world record.
