Who are we?
MUNZ Methods formally known as SAFE.
MAISON MUNZ is an American company founded by movement pioneer Alexandre MUNZ. Across the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia, we train and certify professionals to the innovative MUNZ Methods. The company is based in New York.
Alex MUNZ was classically trained at the Paris Opera Ballet School. As Principal Soloist for the Berlin Opera Ballet, MUNZ interpreted lead roles in numerous ballets and for important contemporary choreographers who created roles for him. Unfortunately, during his dance education in the 80’s, dance medicine had not been fully embraced. After experiencing chronic injuries throughout his career, MUNZ decided to stop abusing his body. Twenty years ago, convinced that he could avoid surgery or a lifetime of medications, MUNZ began experimenting with movements of his own spine; the positive impacts were so quick and deep, he developed a pedagogical method under the name MUNZ (formally known as S.A.F.E.)
Thanks to their innovative spiral movements, the MUNZ Methods has opened up the regenerative powers of the fascia system recently discovered in the scientific community. For two decades, the MUNZ Methods have substantially impacted the lives of athletes, professional dancers and the general public. The rotations and counter-rotations performed through the MUNZ exercises react as a deep massage to the fascia system, stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin. After one class, one can feel the effects of this intramuscular hydration. The MUNZ Methods are equally known for their positive impacts on spinal issues, a serious problem in the 21st century in the United States and Europe.
