About Feldenkrais

For years I've been trying to figure out the easiest way to explain to people how the Feldenkrais Method helps people in ways different from traditional forms of therapy. Michael Cann has produced a wonderful little video that explains it in less than 5 minutes.

How does Feldenkrais help people?


What is the Feldenkrais Method®?

The short version is that Feldenkrais® teaches your body to move with ease while minimizing pain or discomfort. The slightly longer one is that the Feldenkrais Method® is an educational system that uses movement to expand and refine self awareness.

The Feldenkrais Method® created by physicist Moshe Feldenkrais, PhD., combines precisely structured movement sequences with the latest advances in brain research; it will help you recover from specific areas of injury such as the neck and shoulders or to improve fluidity and ease in sports, recreational activities or life. Join the ranks of such notables as actress Whoopi Goldberg, cellist YoYo Ma and the members of the Canadian Men’s Alpine Ski Team in experiencing the benefits of this method.

Anyone can benefit from Feldenkrais®, whether you want to improve movement repertoire (like dancers, musicians, artists), or you want to reduce pain or limitations in movement.

To sum it up, Feldenkrais® is it for anyone that wants to improve their general well-being, personal development and quality of life.

 

Using the Feldenkrais Method, you will:

  • become aware of existing patterns that don't work,
  • introduce new effortless movements to your existing movement repertoire and
  • integrate these movements so they become spontaneous and are now the improved “norm”.
