Hi, I’m Ruth Frommer. I live and work in Melbourne where I hav a Feldenkrais Practice and Aikido Dojo.
I work with people like you who have common problems and hopes, for a better life. I work with people who are limited in their lives due to embodying stress, injury or reduced movement. They may have developed limps, have difficulty reaching up high or may be experiencingdiscomfort and pain. Others come because they want to improve their agility and strength so they can enjoy and excell in their sport or creative pursuits more fully.
My mission is to facilitate you to understand your habits and give you the tools to make changes to how you move. You will discover how you can take better care of yourself, become more agile, strong and resilient.
To me health is more than being free of illness or injury. It is is about making the most of your abilities and learning how to use them to live a fulfilling life.
As a child my spine grew crookedly and I developed a scoliosis. It got so bad that I had to have back surgery. After the surgery my spine had straightened but I still moved asymmetrically. In 1988 I started training in the Feldenkrais Method. Before long I could move with greater ease, symmetry and fluidity. My pain diminished, I became comfortable in my body and liked myself.
Feldenkrais became an integral part of my life and was a catalyst to study the martial art Aikido and NLP ( Neuro Linguistic Programming). Now as a Feldenkrais Assistant trainer, Black Belt 6th Dan and NLP Trainer, I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to study these arts in depth and experienced the positive change they have made to me and my life.
What began as my personal journey soon became my career. On completing my Feldenkrais training in 1991 I was inspired to share my embodied knowledge. I began transitioning from working as a traditional Occupational Therapist to creating my private Feldenkrais practice. I see people for private Feldenkrais sessions. I teach online Feldenkrais classes and Aikido at my dojo. I also teach at Feldenkrais Training Programs and conduct continuing education programs for Feldenkrais practitioners.
