The Feldenkrais Method™ is an extremely effective system of movement that helps all different kinds of people. Whether you have arrived here as a way to rehabilitate from an injury or find relief from pain, or you are merely searching for a way to maintain function and health for body and mind, you have come to the right place.
'The Feldenkrais Method™ is the most sophisticated and effective method I have seen for the prevention and reversal of deterioration of function.'- Margaret Mead, PhD., Anthropologist
In Feldenkrais, we use very gentle, easy movements to reduce muscular tension and increase awareness so that organic learning can take place. Relationships are explored that allow each student to have more options for movement. Once a person has choices, he or she is able to change the habitual patterns that often lead to discomfort and pain, or a loss of function
In this way, the Method allows people to continue to do the things they love...and over time, even resume some of the activities they thought they would never do again! Feldenkrais students will see that ageing does not necessarily mean losing function. We can, in fact, maintain our capabilities and find a way out of the discomfort and pain often associated with the ageing process.
Your brain can change and improve throughout your life. Because movement is a language that your brain understands quite well, the Feldenkrais Method™ gives you an easy way to plug into this natural ability to learn and make real changes that will make real differences in your life.
