TheFeldenkrais Method is about helping you find a more effective way of moving that removes pain and restriction. This is achieved by the guidance of a Feldenkrais Practitioner either one on one or in a group class setting.
I discovered the benefits of Feldenkrais when I was working as a Massage Therapist. I would feel tension and pain after a long day of work. After receiving a session from a Feldenkrais Practitioner my pain and tightness melted away. I also noticed moving was much more fluid and effortless.
This change really got my attention! How could such a subtle, gentle therapy cause so much lasting relief? I HAD to learn more! WHY did it last? How was my body learning to move with less effort?
I noticed I could jog without suffering from back or knee pain and that my knees no longer were "noisy" going up stairs!

“The real work of our lives is to become aware. And awakened. To answer the call.”
“...the Feldenkrais Method can undo many
of the aches and pains that plague us,
and I currently recommend
it to patients whose movement has been restricted by injury or chronic pain.
I also believe the Feldenkrais Method can help older people achieve greater range of motion and flexibility, and help all of us feel more comfortable in our bodies.”
