Beneficial Results of the Feldenkrais Method
The Feldenkrais Method
The Feldenkrais Method is a practical approach to the neuromuscular re-education of posture, balance, movement, and behavior. It consists of two related techniques:
Awareness Through Movement
This method consists of verbally directed, effortless exercises that bring about dramatic change. These exercises range from subtle to expansive movements and involve attitude, imagination, attention, perception, cognition, and visualization.
Functional Integration is a one-on-one method of teaching. Sensory-motor learning is accomplished through the practitioner using sophisticated techniques of gentle touch and passive movement.
Both are designed to reorganize neuromuscular pathways and break up old habits. In combination, these techniques are especially helpful in alleviating the aberrant compensatory movement patterns seen with chronic pain patients.
Students are given homework movement sequences to enable them to become self-sufficient and independent.
Learning how to move properly in this method is derived from the same sequence the nervous system learned initially as an infant. Students feel more coordinated, connected, alive and human.
Who Would Benefit the Most?
Some of the types of disorders which are most improved by The Feldenkrais Method:
- Chronic Pain (Spinal, Multiple, Orthopedic Dysfunctions)
