Sue is a Feldenkrais Practitioner and she knows that as children, most of us could move pretty well, in fact we loved moving. Over the course of time, things may have changed. For a start, the brain makes movement habitual, rather than exploratory. That is practical – imagine having to work out how to walk each day. Yet habitual movement creates wear and tear. Add to that the effect of daily working posture, injury, beliefs and even persistent emotions. The end result might be less flexibility, stiffness and pain or discomfort. In other scenarios, you might be a tennis player frustrated with your serve, a violinist with a persistent sore back, a singer seeking a more powerful voice. Each of these situations can benefit from the Feldenkrais method.
Grounded in the principles of neuroplasticity, this method shows that it is possible to change the way that we move and perform the tasks we want to do easily and effectively. Through the sensation of gentle and pain free movements, the brain is able to experience and become aware of better ways of moving and living. The Feldenkrais method is not a series of treatments but rather a re-education of the mind and body.
Sue enables you to rediscover of how all parts of yourself are connected and contribute to effective movement. Rather than have something done to you or having to follow instructions about a specific regimen, it is a way of you becoming more aware of what you do and how you might find more satisfying alternatives.
