the feldenkrais method ®
The Feldenkrais Method® (FM) is movement education or movement learning. It is a methodology for affecting the sense, control and learning of movement through hands on techniques and specific coordination exercises.
FM increases proprioceptive acuity. Like a wine taster develops an enhanced sense of taste, FM enhances the sense and control of movement or the sixth sense = proprioception.
Pain dissipates as a consequence of better movement and awareness. Benefit comes from learning new movement strategies, greater body awareness and renewed ability to move without pain.
Learning new more efficient movement patterns empowers the person to overcome the limitations of a chronic condition.
