Continuum was founded in 1967 by Emilie Conrad. Emilie's extensive, multi-cultured experience in dance and movement led her to ask what united human beings at a level deeper than culture. Her inquiry initiated and propelled the development of Continuum Movement. Continuum has had an impact on many fields of study and research, including dance, physical therapy, psychology, spinal cord injury, brain research, aging, physical fitness, an the creative process. Emilie Conrad set a revolutionary protocol for treating disease processes the Central Nervous System, especially that of spinal cord injury. She served on the advisory board for the Kessler Rehabilitation Institute, the Bio-Energy Field Foundation, the American Yoga Association, and ISMETA, the International Society of Movement Education Therapists Association.

Continuum is recognized by ISMETA, and by NCBTMB, the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. Since its inception over 35 years ago, Continuum has been used in many aspects of the professional healing and movement arts, to aid people at all levels of challenge and experience.
