The Feldenkrais Method® is a form of neuromuscular reeducation. When someone wants to reduce pain, recover from an injury, or improve aspects of themselves (usually movement, balance, posture, flexibility, or performance related), a Feldenkrais lesson addresses the whole person – not just the symptom – by eliciting changes in the nervous system. Scientists call this process “neuroplasticity,” which is the brain’s extraordinary ability to acquire more efficient patterns of movement and action if given the right learning environment.
Anyone seeking efficient, sustainable movement and posture with less pain and greater self-awareness will benefit from the Feldenkrais Method®. Adults and Children with Neurological conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Stroke & Parkinsons also find Feldenkrais life changing. Since how you move is how you move through life, these improvements will often enhance our students thinking, emotional regulation, and problem-solving capabilities, which brings great relief and empowerment to people battling with mental health issues.
