For some, neurological issues have made movement difficult since birth. For others, they interrupt a previously active life.
Whatever your history with movement, you're now relying heavily on family and a bunch of equipment to help you do basic things.
You've been through some physical therapies. You're receiving good medical care. But you're still looking for something more.
Like countless others with neurological issues, you have a strong appreciation for the value of a body that can move well. And even though you're not expecting a full recovery, you're determined to make the most of what your body and brain can still do.
If there's anything you can do to make your life easier, to reconnect with your social life, and to maintain meaningful work, you want to find it.
You've come to the right place.
Feldenkrais Practitioners regularly help people with issues such as:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Multiple sclerosis
- Spinal cord injuries
The Feldenkrais Method makes use of brain plasticity to improve your ability to move. The goal is not so much to change the strength of your muscles, but to change how your muscles are controlled by your brain.
A Feldenkrais Practitioner will gently facilitate many variations of a movement with the aim of clarifying your brain’s body maps, improving motor control and increasing flexibility. In doing so, your practitioner will assist you to find easier, better ways of doing things like walking, rolling over, standing, and breathing.
The gentle movements and precise touch used in the Feldenkrais Method will give you a unique sense of safety and support. An easy experience of movement will help you to relax and enjoy your body again.
