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.
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.
