The Feldenkrais® Method was developed by Israeli physicist and engineer Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais (1904-1984). Through gentle hands-on and active movements this unique approach helps you sense and become more aware of your habitual movement patterns and learn what other movement options you have. This sensory-motor approach helps you create new neural pathways. Your brain, muscles, joints, skeleton and nervous system learn how to move with more ease, balance, comfort and efficiency. The newly learned fluid movements and postural patterns easily integrate into your daily activities, sports and work.
Many people have found this method helpful in:
- Overcoming pain and injuries.
- Improving their posture
- Gaining confidence in their standing and walking balance
- Improving their sports and art performance
The Feldenkrais® Method is based on principles of physics, biomechanics, and an empirical understanding of learning and human development.
Feldenkrais’s Functional Integration (hands-on part) as well as Awareness Through Movement (the active movement part) might both be utilized in your one-on-one physical therapy treatments.
Currently monthly group Awareness Through Movement classes are offered at Active Solutions Physical Therapy. For information please check out our Facebook page.
