Feldenkrais in a Nutshell
A Life-Changing Tool
The Feldenkrais Method is a life-changing tool that couples movement with self-awareness to help people resolve their pain, achieve their goals and enhance their lives. The Method is rooted in a synthesis of Eastern knowledge, Western science, somatic awareness and human development theories. Its high level of effectiveness for healing and transformation comes from directly engaging the plasticity of the brain.
The Feldenkrais Method is a whole-body learning process. It is a means by which people can learn to listen to and understand the sensory information in their body. This sensory information is invaluable for resolving chronic pain. This same sensory information can help someone become a better singer, athlete, lover, etc. Sensory information can be used to help someone walk safely up and down stairs after an accident or surgery, or to regain self-care skills lost through a neurological disorder.
A Well-Tuned Body
Our body is the instrument through which we live our lives. Just as a well-tuned musical instrument lends itself more readily to playing good music, a responsive, relaxed and pain-free body makes life easier and more enjoyable. The Feldenkrais Method is a means of tuning our “instrument” so it better serves us in whatever we want to do.
Feldenkrais® is effective for people of all ages, abilities and states of health.
