About the Feldenkrais Method®

What is the Feldenkrais Method® of somatic education? (~10 mins)

As a body-mind learning method, Feldenkrais (rhymes with “paradise”) teaches you how to improve the way your systems interact—which helps you increase physical ability and mental acuity, gain more self-confidence in how you approach life, and reduce (or even eliminate) pain.

Awareness & Your Nervous System

How is this possible? Much as massage attends to the muscular system and chiropractic to the skeletal, Feldenkrais Method techniques are designed to actively involve your nervous system to effect changes. By increasing your awareness of your physical positioning, sensations and responses, as well as the connection between mental attention and your physical movements, you can have tremendous control over aspects of your body’s systems you might never have associated with physical movement before. The net result is you are able to break through the personal barriers we target together.

An interview about personal experiences with the Feldenkrais Method®


Thank you very much for the lesson. I felt great – very even-keel – afterwards, and was so impressed by both its effects and the experience overall. You’re clearly a talented practitioner!

I know I have healed in so many ways. When I first started last year, I was stumbling over my feet and broke my arm. Today I’m walking, talking and even skipping for joy!

After knowing Robert for several years I still really did not understand the dynamics surrounding Feldenkrais. One day I took a session with him and I was blown away. I was amazed at the Feldenkrais process. My legs did not seem attached to my body. Robert was so gentle and professional. There is no way to describe it. Feeling is believing.

I value working with Bob Boyd because he is a good listener. He is thoughtful, patient, and willing to try various methods to help me achieve my session goals.
