The Feldenkrais Method® uses gentle, mindful movement that helps our patients with posture and balance.
Have you heard of the Feldenkrais Method? It is a comfortable, effective, and innovative physical therapy method for not only treating aches and pains, but also enhancing the body and mind.
Developed by Russian physical therapist Moshe Feldenkrais, this method combines a unique combination of science, aesthetics, and human function. The Feldenkrais Method website describes this treatment as “somatic education [that] uses gentle movement and directed attention to help people learn new and more effective ways of living the life they want.”
There are many aspects to the Feldenkrais method, including, but not limited to:
- Improving flexibility
- Improving coordination
- Effectively moving
- Rediscovering bodily balance
While movement is an undeniably important part of the Feldenkrais Method, this treatment was developed with both the mind and body in consideration. Since how we move affects so many aspects of our life, the Feldenkrais Method also works to help with:
- Enhanced thinking
- Emotional regulation
- Problem-solving capabilities
This method is not only based on mechanical and anatomical movements of the body, but is also deeply rooted in physics, biomechanics, and the empirical understanding of the way the human body learns and develops.
Essentially, this method of treatment can help you live a higher quality of life that is both physically and mentally stronger. So, what are you waiting for?
